Bernhard Adam Bauer (5 June 1882 – 29 April 1942) was an Austrian gynecologist and writer on women.[1]

Woman (1927), dealing with "female sexual anatomy and methods of achieving sexual satisfaction, was an immediate hit in England and was frequently reprinted".[2] Komödiantin—Dirne? linked the role of actress with that of prostitute, tracing the history of the profession to indecent erotic dances in Greek drama, and arguing actresses were characterised by both infantilism and exhibitionism.[3]
