Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

About the Author

The integration of psychological, social, and biological components of human sexuality in this text is facilitated by the authors' combined academic and professional backgrounds. Robert Crooks has a Ph.D. in psychology. His graduate training stressed clinical and physiological psychology, and he has considerable background in sociology. His involvement with teaching human sexuality classes at the university, college, and medical school levels spans over two decades. Bob and his wife, Sami Tucker, have been involved in the establishment and implementation of HIV/AIDS intervention programs in two areas of Kenya, one in the central region and one in a coastal area. Over the previous 12 years their work with these projects includes designing a research strategy for assessing behavior change, developing a peer educator-based educational strategy, and conducting training sessions for Kenyan peer educator staff. Over many years they have traveled to African frequently and devoted many months to the evolving Kenyan programs.

Karla Baur has a master's degree in social work; her advanced academic work stressed clinical training. She is a licensed clinical social worker in private practice, specializing in couples and sex therapy. Karla has provided clinical supervision, seminars, and lectures for other mental health therapists and professional groups. She has taught human sexuality and female sexuality classes at Portland Community College, Portland State University, and Clark College. At Oregon Health Sciences University she taught a human sexuality course and coached medical students in taking sexual histories with patients. Karla was also involved in a six-week program in Kenya to train HIV/AIDS Prevention Peer Educators. She has been certified as a sex educator, therapist, and sex therapy supervisor by the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists. She is currently developing a play about the nuances and complexities of male sexuality with her collaborator, composer/writer Fred Strong.

Some of use may take the class for GE or random credit. For some classes you can get by without the book, and yes, for most general human sexuality courses you can get by without the text. However, this text is extremely well thought out and articulate. It provides good insight into contemporary sexual issues and explores vast controversial issues with surprisingly adequate depth.

Most textbooks I've read are tediously boring, but this one is definitely an exception. I used this during a 3-week intense summer class, and I LOVED this book. Maybe it's because I'm a pervert, maybe not, but this book is extremely interesting. In fact, it is one of the few I did not sell after using it. I would highly recommend this!

This text is an excellent resource to cover all things about sex. It covers even those taboo subjects other text may shy away from. The personal stories are wonderful, the graphics and pictures are well-place, colorful and applicable. A resource to keep around.

This textbook is good for a complete, generalized study of sexualtiy in today's society. Basically, a basic beginner's look at human sexuality.

Format: Hardcover
THIS BOOK EXPLAINS AND DETAILS SEX JUST AS THE AVERAGE PERSON MAY EXPRESS THEMSELVE. IT HOLDS BACK NO SOFT OR HARD OPINIONS AND SIMPLY TELLS IT LIKE IT IS IN TODAY'S WORLD. THERE'S NO NEED TO BE SHY OR WITH-HELD ON ANY TOPIC. SEXUALITY IS DISCUSSED IN AN EXTREMELY BROAD FASHION, RECOGNIZING EVERYTHING THAT RESULTS FROM OUR TIMES. IT MAY BE VIEWED AS EXPLICIT; HOWEVER, AGAIN, IT IS A MIRROR OF OUR SEXUAL ACTIVITIES, BOLDNESS IN BELIEF OF SEXUAL PRACTICES AND GRAPHIC WITHIN ITS CONTENT.

IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH THE OVERALL SEXUAL PRACTICES AND BELIEFS IN TODAY'S WORLD, YOU WILL BE COMFORTABLE WITH THIS BOOK, ON THE OTHER HAND, IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS DEALING WITH THE VARIETY OF EXPRESSIONS DISPLAYED IN OUR SOCIETY AND DON'T BELIEVE IN AWKWARD OR UNCOMFORTABLE SEXUAL PRACTICES BEYOND HETEROSEXUALS, THEN YOU MAY EXPERIENCE BEING UNCOMFORTABLE WITH MANY SUBJECT MATTERS.
