Book Description

An evidence-based and approachable introduction to the field of sexuality studies, focusing on the myriad ways in which sexuality enriches our lives while also posing unique problems. Discovering Human Sexuality, which is currently in its fourth edition, has established itself as a popular and widely praised text that respects diversity both in the world of sexuality and among the students who read it. This respect extends to the text’s inclusion of a wide range of sexual orientations. The authors’ diverse experiences in fields such as biology, sociology, education, and literature have resulted in a text that is authoritative, sex-positive, and a joy to read. This text is a product of the authors’ combined efforts.

Discovering Human Sexuality covers a mind-bogglingly wide variety of topics, ranging from homosexuality in ancient Greece to the contemporary sexual harassment incident involving Harvey Weinstein. Its breadth goes from the crisis surrounding Harvey Weinstein to homosexuality in ancient Greece. Among the questions that are taken into consideration is, “How does the menstrual cycle work?” What exactly does it mean to “split the bamboo”? Is there any treatment for ejaculating too soon? Is it safe for a guy to engage in sexual activity without using a condom if his HIV level is undetectable? Who among the sexual offenders is likely to commit other offenses? Is there a gene for homosexuality? Why is the practice of polygamy frowned upon? Is abortion possible with emergency contraception? Which stalls are reserved for transgender people? This book provides information for educated debate on topics that do not have a single answer by giving accurate answers to critical questions and providing material for argument.
