Dr. M. Maurice Abitbol has spent many years treating and interviewing patients about their sexual lives. As the chairman of obstetrics and gynecology at New York's Jamaica Hospital Medical Center and as an associate professor at the State University of New York, he has brought both practical and academic perspectives to the subject of human sexuality.


Sexuality really has been and still is a new force, some kind of engine that has motivated and guided our prehuman and human ancestors to undertake the arduous path of human evolution.
