Review
"The most perverse perversions are not always those one would expect. At once clinical, bewildering, hilarious and deeply poignant, Overexposed shows how science can pervert itself by identifying too closely with its object, pushing along the way the limits assigned to humanity. This insider's exposition of a controversial cognitive behavioral method is a hallucinatory document on the manner in which our society exposes sexuality to the point of overexposure. Are we all already living in a sex laboratory?"--BOOK JACKET.
