I entirely agree with the thoughts of Eva.  Dr Tanya Byron managed to both patronise and moralise
carefully selected individuals used to hold up her opinions on 'normality'.  It left me with the
impression that she probably regards anything beyond the missionary position as somewhat suspect,
although conceding that she had little right to control the actions of consenting adults.  Frankly
the best summary on the topic is provided by the Austrian psychiatrist Alfred Adler 

“The only normal people are the one's you don't know very well.”
