About Dr. Mundinger-Klow

I am the son of famed sexologists Guenter Klow and Gerda Mundinger, whose many research books into human sexuality were bestsellers in the 1960s-1980s.  Their son continues their research in the 21st Century as mankind finds itself in a paradigm shift when it comes to sex, love, lust, connection, and physical need in an increasing world of technological distance.

My sister, Gretchen Mundinger-Klow, is a sex therapist.  Her monograph, Training Your Lesbian Sex Slave, is a must-read.

I was born October 20, 1961, in New York City. My sister was born in 1971. We were both surrounded by sexology, sexologists, sociologists, anthroologists, Freudian psycoanalysts, and academics. I graduated high shcool at 15 and started college at 16.

At age 18, I decided to join the Navy, rebelling against my parents’ desire for me to become an academic.

I did, however, return to college after my two years.  I received my B.A. in sociology at SUNY Buffalo, and my M.A. and Ph.D. in sociology and qualitative research at the Univ. of Illinois, Urbana, where I studied under Dr. Norman K. Denzin.

I received a second Ph.D. in psychology from Harvard University and then my M.D. from the Univ. of California, Los Angeles.

I returned to military service during the first gulf war where I was both chief surgeon in the field, and later a therpist for soldiers suffeering PTSD.

In 1997, I accepted the post of Kinsey Chair at the Beverly Hills Institute for Sexual Health Research, where I remain today.

  1. Hello,

    After wondering where all the hits to my site were coming from, I finally got around to tracing it back to your book.

    At this point, I’m not sure whether to hit you or hug you. I am a human being after all, not a research subject.

    Why wasn’t I asked permission to use my writing/web addy in your book? It would seem only common curtesy to do so. It probably would have been happily given but alas, I was not given that choice.

    I guess an apology for that oversight would be appreciated… You decide.

  2. Upon further reflection, I realize I may have upset you with my initial comment. Possibilities probably abound in your head about the harm I might mean you.

    Nothing could be further from the truth. I’m just tired of most “regular” people thinking escorts are less than human and less deserving of respect normally accorded.

    I was actually hoping to open up a dialogue with you about what you do, what I do, etc.

    Hope that makes you feel better, if that was your thinking before receiving this.

    I wish you well.

    • Anna — Sorry for the delay in replying, I have been out of the country on a research fellowship. My apologies on not asking first. I hope you got some clients from it. 😉 — Open dialogue is most welcome.

  3. Well hello there,

    I received some more hits to my site today and followed them to this site again. Many thanks for that.

    And thank you for your apology. I really appreciate it. As was said in previous emails, most don’t have a high opinion of this industry and tend to treat those in it with disdain. I’m glad you are not one of those people.

    In all seriousness, some days I feel like a sex therapist. I see so many men that love their wives but can’t explore their sexuality at home. This can be for many reasons including the ruts we tend to get ourselves into in relationships, the shame we North Americans tend to surround our sexuality with, women’s fears of objectification, severe lack of communication between partners… and I could go on and on.

    Suffice to say that I had 3 men last week alone who actually stopped at the door on their way out, turned to me and in all sincerity said, “Thanks Anna.” How fulfilling is that? Very.

    How sad is it that we must keep our sexuality locked up in a closet, only to be let out and explored in secret.

    Anyway, enough ruminating for today. Write any time. And if you actually email me at beautifulanna1@gmail.com , it won’t be 6 months until I respond next.

    Happy 4th of July!
