    A student of Freud, psychoanalyst William Reich developed a theory in the 1930s that proposed sexual permissiveness as a means to alleviate repression and improve health. His ideas prepared the way for the sexual revolution of the 1960s and his machine to focus 'orgone energy' was ultimately lampooned by Woody Allen as the orgasmatron in Sleeper. Christopher Turner's much-praised book tells the story of the radical and influential thinker and his extraordinary life.
