Bering is a well-educated sexologist who has written about a huge variety of sexual classifications. Most of these classifications were completely unknown to me. There are a huge number of “philes” that are not in common usage, but are used by people studying human sexuality. He does a good job of working the issue of normal with these classifications and then asking the question about how we are to judge people with these kinds of deviances.
