By Ana Martos Rubio

“Así pues, encontramos una obra imprescindible y accesible para curiosos de toda condición, a pesar de que se hace más conveniente como libro de consulta que de lectura, especialmente en los primeros capítulos.”
(Web Anika entre libros)

“Con un lenguaje sencillo y práctico l. a., autora nos habla de un tema tabú en l. a. Edad Media: el sexo. Aunque l. a. iglesia católica se empeñaba en tratar al sexo como algo impuro, vergonzoso y sucio, lo cierto es que, realmente, los angeles época medieval no fue tan puritana como siempre habíamos creído.”
(Web Literariamente hablando)

Contra los angeles creencia generalizada, l. a. Edad Media fue un periodo en donde el goce sexual fue considerado una prioridad médica y se escribieron numerosos tratados sobre erotismo.

Edad Media fue una época oscura y puritana, pero lejos de esa suggestion, el Medievo fue una época compleja en los angeles que se mezclaba el temor al pecado carnal con un erotismo exacerbado fruto de las teorías médicas en boga.

Estos textos mostrarán l. a. clara influencia de l. a. medicina griega sobre los angeles medicina medieval y el asombro que sentían los médicos medievales por cuestiones tan cotidianas como los angeles menstruación o el deseo sexual.

El libro de Ana Martos, no obstante, no es sólo un tratado sobre medicina y sexualidad medieval, sino que acompañan los angeles obra una serie de relatos sobre confabulaciones políticas e historias de amor entre reyes y reinas sin las que el tema critical sería inexplicable. También debe hacer una pequeña incursión en las teorías filosóficas, teológicas y científicas, y en las creaciones literarias, que determinaron l. a. sexualidad y el amor, carnal o platónico, de los angeles época. Para los médicos griegos, el esperma femenino participaba también en l. a. procreación por lo que cualquier técnica destinada a propiciar su secreción y el orgasmo femenino period considerada dentro de los angeles moralidad cristiana, desde ese momento proliferan los libros y manuales sobre erotismo, existía sin embargo, una corriente inspirada en Aristóteles que sostenía que l. a. mujer period mero receptáculo y su placer, por tanto, innecesario. El triunfo de esta corriente llevará asociado los angeles condena religiosa del orgasmo femenino y el sometimiento sexual que ha durado hasta hace bien poco.

Razones para comprar l. a. obra:

• los angeles obra nos muestra el origen sobre más de un tabú sexual que ha llegado a nuestros días con el fin de explicar los angeles falta de fundamento de dichos prejuicios.
• Mezcla dos historias curiosas y asombrosas que son fundamentales para comprender al ser humano: l. a. historia del erotismo y l. a. historia de los angeles medicina.
• l. a. Edad Media dio origen a numerosas formas de amor que se repiten, con sutiles variaciones en los clichés de películas y novelas contemporáneas.
• El libro tiene numerosas imágenes que ilustran el contenido del texto y una bibliografía para quien quiera profundizar en el tema.

Una obra que mezcla l. a. historia de l. a. medicina y l. a. del erotismo, pero también nos mostrará los tópicos que han llegado hasta nuestros días como l. a. relación entre masturbación y ceguera, los desperfectos que causa l. a. mujer cuando menstrua o los sofocos y desmayos del mal de amores decimonónico.
