With her trademark titillating humour, Dr Ruth Westheimer explores how art and verse can enhance desire. The selections, compiled by editor Charles Sullivan, couple Ginsberg with Hockney, Donne with Lichtenstein, Sappho with O'Keeffe. And as in the best relationships, each unconventional match exposes new, surprising aspects of both partners. Through chapter introductions and commentary, Dr Ruth reveals these nuances and the ways in which they can touch readers. The colour illustrations include paintings by Chagall, Magritte and Bronzino, photographs by Man Ray and Nan Goldin, and erotic sculptures and prints from ancient India and Japan. This anthology pairs a total of 60 poems and artworks.
