Reviews and Endorsements

‘Dr. Estela Welldon, the doyenne of forensic psychotherapy, has written a delightful new masterpiece. Though only one hundred and thirty-two pages long, this beautifully illustrated book serves as a mighty encapsulation of Welldon's nearly sixty-year career as a mental health practitioner. Stunningly, if provocatively, illustrated by the talented artist Ricardo Cinalli, Welldon's book investigates the forensic state of mind in which human beings act out, often ending up in painful sexual situations, rather than talking about, or thinking about, their dangerous desires or the potential consequences. This new tome builds helpfully upon Welldon's classic Mother, Madonna, Whore: The Idealization and Denigration of Motherhood and upon her many other standard works. Pleasantly, Welldon has, this autumn, published not only Sex Now Talk Later but, also, an updated version of her popular text on Sadomasochism, now published under the title Sadomasochism in Art and Politics. I recommend both books most enthusiastically as essential reading for all practitioners of the psychological arts.’
