A Story of Sexual Compulsion

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Larry has a secret life. Burdened with fear and deep feelings of inadequacy, this married father of two young children sustains himself, like he has since his teens, by exhibiting (flashing). For Larry, living is a contest, a challenge beyond his basic responsibilities. The story is Larry's life from age 29 to 35 with flashbacks to his childhood. In Larry's struggle with sexual compulsion we see the universality of his fear and frailty.

"This is a very moving account of sexual compulsion and how sexual addicts deal with impulses apparently beyond their control. It is a gripping story, which will make a significant contribution to our understanding of this enormously troublesome topic that goes far beyond '"exhibitionism" per se."
--Alan Bell, Ph.D. (1932-2002), Former Professor in the Department of Counseling and Psychology at Indiana University. Former Senior Research Psychologist at the Kinsey Institute for Sex Research.
