The games are designed to lead to the resolution of sexual and emotional blocks. In a sense, they are an elaboration of the kinds of exercises devised by William Masters and Virginia Johnson as an adjunct to the sex-therapy program they introduced in Human Sexual Response. However, their exercises are aimed at the resolutions of such sexual symptoms as premature or retarded ejaculation, partial or full impotency, partial or full frigidity, sexual phobias, and the like. The games offered here are intended to reach deeper into the unconscious recesses of character formation; the aim is not only to relieve symptoms but to resolve characterological attitudes.

The main difference between the games in this book and the sex games that people normally play is that these games are not compulsive rituals but rather conscious, deliberate enactments with a special purpose. They are similar to the games people normally play in that they address the same fixations that compulsive rituals address, but they do so in a way that is designed to resolve (rather than maintain) them.
