This book attempts to take a look at the important topic of the effects of psychoactive drugs on sexual response, reproduction, and other aspects of sexuality. It covers hormone therapies (estrogen, testosterone, etc), recreationally-used psychoactives (alcohol, opioids, etc), and a number of different classifications of pharmaceutical medications. This book is a good start at covering a laudable topic, but the section on illegal psychoactives is very thin and under-informed, with errors such as equating the effects of lsd, ecstasy, and all other “hallucinogens” on sexuality.
