In feelings of lust we ask ourselves what can I get, in feelings of love we ask what can I give. But when people have been traumatized in childhood they may go sideways in their development and only lust while calling it love or "getting even". Can we have compassion for the prostitute, the sex offender and the "pervert"? Can these wounded souls heal their bodies and minds? These questions are answered in this fascinating account of sexual obsession, and sexualized anger.
