The just-released Masters/Johnson/Robert Kolodny book "Crisis" is a great disservice to us all. Its professed study of a mere 800-member heterosexual group is an appalling book-marketing campaign posturing as scientific research. It plays on the public's worst fears, fostering ever greater doubt and suspicion, and generating even more harm toward innocent men, women and children, too many of whom we have seen victimized already. This book is nothing more than a greedy and vile commercial effort by the authors to line their pockets at the expense of dedicated research physicians and selfless scientists in many fields the world over, who are joined in a common goal to lick this dread disease.

How much of a threat is AIDS to heterosexuals? Until a year ago, public health officials argued that while the number of cases of heterosexual AIDS was very small, heterosexuals represented the fastest-growing segment of the epidemic and that the number of cases among them would soon begin to rise steeply, following the pattern that homosexuals had experienced a few years before.

So you're feeling a little pang of guilt for something you did, or said, or bought, or thought. There it is, that creepy emotion that nibbles at your gut, flattens your smile and bombards your brain with conflicting commands to atone and deny. But before you write off this experience as a distasteful form of self-punishment, keep this in mind: Feeling guilty can be good for you.

They aren't carrying stopwatches and thermometers--or wearing white lab coats--but no two people have ever talked so candidly about sex as much as Masters & Johnson and continued to be so hopelessly unsexy. They motor into the lounge at the Four Seasons Hotel in Washington, D.C., looking like two senior citizens in desperate need of a Caribbean cruise.

Sasha Alyson was chilled when he assimilated the gruesome prediction: Within five years, one-third of his friends might be dead from AIDS. His imagination took a macabre turn. Of his 10 closest friends, which three would succumb? Soon thereafter, one of those three was diagnosed and told his death from AIDS was imminent.

Every morning, shortly after 9, Deborah Fluker's office phone would ring. It was always the hunk of a runway model she'd met in a costume store, asking if she'd gotten to work OK. Later she'd call him back to find out what he wanted for dinner, wondering if he'd surprise her with some silly trinket or card to add to those that already cluttered her Manhattan apartment. Chances are, they'd spend the evening falling asleep cuddled up in front of the TV.

The difficulty of striking an appropriate balance between prudence and panic in containing the AIDS pandemic was well illustrated this week with the release of a book by two noted researchers in the field of sexuality. They have sounded an alarm concerning the spread of the disease through the heterosexual population that suggests dangers that are far greater than any identified by most public-health officials or those already engaged in research. Dr. William H. Masters and Virginia E.

There are 351 men in California locked up in a state mental hospital as sexually violent predators, prone to attack again and again. Then there is Charlotte Mae Thrailkill. The 43-year-old mother of two is California's only female violent sex offender, confined to a maximum-security state mental hospital after experts decided she was too dangerous for release.
