Summary

This is the most respected and authoritative college textbook available on human sexuality. Written in a direct, non-judgmental manner, this edition of Our Sexuality has been thoroughly and carefully updated to reflect the most current research findings. It is the first college text to bring cutting-edge and in-depth emphasis on the impact of politics on sexuality.

Crooks and Baur keep you interested with the most exciting, emerging research and coverage, and focus on strengthening healthy communication among partners. The authors also have revised their overall coverage on maintaining a responsible and healthy sexual relationship, with greater attention to diversity and inclusiveness.

"I would call it a 'classic' sexuality book with cutting-edge content. I love how it addresses politics, particularly in chapters on contraception." -Dianne Kerr, Kent State University

"OUR SEXUALITY has proved to be the perfect text for my undergraduate course on human sexuality. It is well-structured, formatted, and presented, with interesting sidelines alongside the expected and necessary information. This is the text that you have been fantasizing about."- David Yarbrough, University of Louisiana, Lafayette

"Crooks and Baur provide a readable text that provides students with a solid understanding of human sexuality. The content is neither salacious nor prudish but instead is a forthright presentation of relevant topics. The text sheds light on relevant themes in the study of sexuality while simultaneously providing specifics on more concrete topics like sex research and anatomy."- Chris B. Current, Walla Walla University

"Typically an elective/non-sociology major type class that fills up fast. It wasn't a difficult class, I don't know why it costs so much, but I rented and it was only like $20."

This is the most respected and authoritative college textbook available on human sexuality. I think this textbook goes step-by-step through the basics of human anatomy and topics range from STD's to abortion to Loving relationships in very straightforward language. It is very easy to read and understand, and the information is priceless! I would recommend this textbook even as a general read.
