Book Description

This ground-breaking second edition of Human Sexuality continues its broad and interdisciplinary goal of providing readers with a comprehensive overview on sexuality as a core part of our individual identities and social lives.

Edited by anthropological experts on the subject, this unique textbook integrates evolutionary and cultural aspects to provide a fully interdisciplinary approach to human sexuality that is rare in this area of scholarship. Fully updated throughout in line with developments in the field, this second edition includes fresh material exploring new sexual identities, sexual violence and consent, internet pornography, conversion therapy, polyamory, and much more. In addition to providing a rich array of photographs, illustrations, tables, and a glossary of terms, this textbook explores:

    • pregnancy and childbirth as a bio-cultural experience
    • life-course issues related to gender identity, sexual orientations, behaviors, and lifestyles
    • socioeconomic, political, historical, and ecological influences on sexual behavior
    • early childhood sexuality, puberty and adolescence
    • birth control, fertility, conception, and sexual differentiation
    • HIV infection, AIDS, AIDS globalization and sex work

Utilizing viewpoints across cultural and national boundaries and taking into account the evolution of human anatomy, sexual behavior, attitudes, and beliefs across the globe, Human Sexuality 2nd edition remains an essential text for educators and students who wish to understand human sexuality in all of its richness and complexity.
