A single celebrity hockey goalie-turned-journalist defines his destructive experiences with an uncommon mind growth that created his body to be swamped with huge quantities of women hormonal agent that damaged his libido and also obstructed his sex-related efficiency, his years of torture, as well as the mind surgical procedure that removed his sex-related disorder. 20,000 very first printing.


& colon; Ken Baker was a working-class young boy from Buffalo, New York City, that imagined playing specialist hockey; his concept of maleness was created by a papa that chain-smoked, cautioned his children that "women will certainly spoil your life" (he needed to wed the writer"s expectant mom), and also sneered at physicians" cautions to heal his poor routines--"You obtained ta die of something." Yet Baker had a lump in his mind that swamped his body with the women hormonal agent prolactin; he dripped milk from his nipple areas as well as might seldom have an erection. His wince-inducing narrative draws no strikes and also utilizes no euphemisms in informing what it resembled to be a sexually inefficient male in a sex-saturated culture. Women viewers might take a particular grim contentment in finding out that guys, also, can really feel susceptible and also sexually manipulated, however many will merely admire Baker"s desire to disclose the gory information of his failure-riddled sex life. Although he makes some high-minded cases regarding the understandings he acquired from his experience ("I had the ability to trip to an organic area couple of guys will certainly ever before understand ... My member today is more powerful due to it"), what"s actually clutching right here is his in-depth account of what it seemed like to fear sex as opposed to chase it, to come close to sexual intercourse as an examination as opposed to a satisfaction. We can just be eliminated that surgical treatment recovered him to hormonally regular manliness at age 27, although the sweetheart that waited him via it and after that paid attention to him take off with testosterone-charged craze when she whined concerning his succeeding ignorance may differ. Baker"s glossy prose mirrors his history in celeb journalism (he operated at Individuals and also is currently an elderly author at United States), yet there"s no refuting the attraction of his unusual tale.-- Wendy Smith
