Albert Ellis (1913-2007) was an American psychologist who developed Rational Emotive Therapy (RET), a cognitive-behavioral therapy. He has written many books, such as The Practice of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, 2nd Edition,Humanistic Psychotherapy: The Rational-Emotive Approach,Is Objectivism a Religion?,Homosexuality: Its Causes and Cure, etc.

He wrote in the Introduction to this book (which was originally published in 1960), "There are, heavens knows, many published marriage manuals. Why, then, another? Because... none quite seems to fill all the requirements which I am ungracious enough to demand of the ideal work in this area. What are these requirements? Simply that a handbook of marital relationships be---Objective rather than moralizing... Psychosexual rather than merely sexual... Complete as to essentials rather than irrelevantly all-inclusive... I have shaped this book to these requirements so that men and women may have the basic knowledge that they need of themselves and of each other." (Pg. ix)

He states early in the book, "The brain also serves as a controller or inhibitor of sex excitement or climax. Even when he receives direct genital stimulation a person may focus his attention on non-stimulating thoughts (such as thoughts of house cleaning or playing chess) and may prevent himself from becoming aroused or reaching a climax." (Pg. 2) He suggests [and remember this was years before Human Sexual Response was written], "it is doubtful whether a special 'vaginal orgasm' exists." (Pg. 11)

He advises, "The only sane way, therefore, to know what sexually arouses and satisfies your mate is... to ask him or her... Shame, in this connection, is utterly silly---just as silly as a husband's being ashamed to tell his wife that he likes eggs scrambled instead of sunnyside up, and then becoming angry because, somehow, she does not fathom this. Why the devil should she? And why on earth should he be ashamed to tell her?" (Pg. 43)

He argues, "homosexual activity IN ITSELF is not abnormal or deviated, since its roots are well established in man's biological pluri-sexual heritage. But when an individual's homosexual acts become fixated, fear-impelled, or obsessive-compulsive then... they are just as deviant as would be his frantically or compulsively eating, running, or making noises... At the same time, we must not fall into the unscientific trap of viewing as 'perverted'---as the writers of the Old Testament did---any sex act which is nonprocreative." (Pg. 200) [It should be noted that Ellis later significantly modified his views; see Sex Without Guilt in the Twenty-First Century.]

"Sex/Marriage manuals" are rather passé, these days; but comparing Ellis's views more than 50 years ago with his more recent views can be interesting.
