The Seventh Edition of the best-selling college textbook in human sexuality continues to offer the same qualities you've come to expect from Crooks and Baur ... and more! Continuing their tradition of sensitivity, comprehensiveness currency and candor, Robert Crooks and Karla Baur offer much that is new and exciting in this thorough revision. You'll find thorough coverage of all major topics incorporated into every section, including sexual health issues; the very latest research, stories about the real experiences of real people from the "Authors' Files;" and a writing style that is warm, frank, and nonjudgmental. In addition, the authors address diversity in even more detail than the last edition of this best-selling text. They also include new coverage of the latest research on such topics as the depiction of sex in the media, sex in cyberspace, gender identity issues, breast implants, prostate cancer treatments, contraception technology, sexual orientation, artificial insemination, and sexually transmitted diseases. In this Seventh Edition, the authors have updated many of the cross-cultural examples, included more in-chapter coverage of multicultural differences, added more "Sexuality and Diversity" boxes, and provided more frequent examples of gays, lesbians, and bisexuals throughout. Crooks and Baur illustrate that for all of our differences, we all share the human experience of many sexual and relationship matters. Such matters cross cultural boundaries and sexual orientation lines, such as: the body's physiological arousal and response to pleasure; overcoming the green-eyed monster of jealousy and communicating more effectively; the need to protect ourselves from STDs; how our sexual satisfaction can improve with age even as the body changes; and how we help those who have been victimized by sexual attack, etc.
