Eichel, Edward W. papers, 2000-2008

  • Repository: Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections, Cornell University Library
  • Collection Number: 7721
  • Size: 1 folder Manuscripts.
  • Subject: Human Sexuality
  • Subject: Cornell University
  • Abstract: Three papers by Eichel arguing that sexologists with the Kinsey Institute and SIECUS (Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States) privilege and promote pedophilia and non-monogamous, non-heterosexual sex, while at the same time suppressing information about the sexual compatibility of men and women and the ability of monogamous heterosexual couples to have satisfying sexual intercourse. Eichel suggests that with a technique called Coital Alignment Technique (CAT) heterosexual couples can overcome the two most common sexual problems: premature ejaculation and lack of female orgasm. Eichel argues that sexologists plan to use sex education to normalize bisexuality and pedophilia and ultimately to "disenfranchise sexual intercourse, the institution of marriage." Also, some clippings, publicity, and correspondence about his work.
