El libro comienza con una buena reflexión sobre las diferencias entre los conceptos, percepciones y costumbres de la sexualidad en diversos contextos culturales, más adelante hace una excelente explicación desde el aspecto biológico de la sexualidad.
Sin embargo, aunque intenta dar explicaciones desde el campo sociológico y psicológico, no fundamenta bien estos dos ejes que estructuran la dimensión "sexualidad".
Es un libro muy bueno para orientar la clase pero requiere de apoyo de otros textos.

The best textbook I've ever read so far. LOL. I said that with much of biases since I always love every books that have gay in it. LOL.

I really want to take the class but sadly I can't before I reach 3rd year of college. Guess I would just satisfied with rereading this though.

Amazing textbook for the undergraduate psychology or sociology student interested in sexuality. Has a strong balance between the biological aspects and psychosocial aspects of sex. I have used this textbook in two courses so far and I love it.

An interesting read. It is a textbook and a three star rating is about the best I can do for a book like this. It does have some great information and was one the easiest to read that I have had.

Used as a textbook for the "Human Sexuality" course given through the Psychology department at Stetson University. Highly readable, thorough, and unbiased.

This is my Human Sexuality class textbook. By far one of the most interesting textbooks I've ever come across. ;)
