Summary

Hock's Human Sexuality, Second Edition, takes an interpersonal approach to human sexuality. The central message of the text is developing and defining your own sexual philosophy. Every chapter begins with actual student questions. Throughout the chapter the questions are answered and new ones are posed encouraging students to think critically, analyze, and use the material in personally relevant ways.

Hock takes a psychosocial approach, focusing on those topics that are most critical and of greatest relevance to the students' personal lives, their interactions with others, and how these topics affect them emotionally. This student centered approach is incorporated into the text's discussions of all areas of sexuality psychological, social and biological (including medical, health, anatomical and physiological). Sensitivity to diverse groups, not only in terms of race and ethnicity, but also in terms if sexual orientation and age, allows all students to feel as comfortable and open as possible.

Human Sexuality encompasses far more than "just sex." Sexuality is fundamental to our identities as humans and it is a complex and multi faceted subject. More than likely, you already have ideas developed around some of the topics contained within this text. You may have questions about information you've received from the media, or friends, or from prior sex education. Perhaps you are struggling with thoughts or feelings about your own sexual identity. With an emphasis on choice, awareness, and responsibility, Roger R. Hock's Human Sexuality will provide you with information and knowledge that you can apply and use for the rest of your life.

Great Textbook June 2, 2011
by
It is a great textbook! It has a lot of information, even though I had to purchase it for a course in school this is a textbook I definitely want to hang on to. Every chapter begins with actual student questions. Throughout the chapter the questions are answered and new ones are posed--encouraging students to think critically, analyze, and use the material in personally relevant ways. I would recommend it for any basic introductory Human Sex class.
