Nymphomania: A History
Carol Groneman (au). Nymphomania -- organic disease, psychological disorder, legal construct, & locker-room joke. Throughout history, it’s been all these & more. Images of sexually available women permeate our culture, & curiosity about nymphomania is insatiable. Here, Groneman follows the idea of nymphomania over the last 200 years, unraveling questions about how much is too much sex for women -- & who decides. The term ‘nymphomania’ has undergone almost comical permutations according to each of the anxieties & misogynies in society’s ever-changing view of acceptable female behavior. She provides a fascinating history of a term that has no medical basis & has been repeatedly redefined over time to reflect culture -- & fears of the power of female sexuality.
