Editorial Reviews


Lehmiller has written an impressive, up-to-date coverage of human sexuality. Well-researched and beautifully written, it surveys the vast and tangled realm of human sexual behavior with gentle respect and insight. Everyone will learn something new from this book and come away impressed with a new appreciation of this vital domain of human social life.
Roy Baumeister, author of The Cultural Animal: Human Nature, Meaning, and Social Life 

Going both wide and deep, Lehmiller has produced a singular feat of scholarship that will not only get students and teachers talking about sex, but will inspire conversations about human sexuality that are informed, accurate, lively and respectful"
Ian Kerner, sexuality counselor and NY Times best-selling author of She Comes First

The Psychology of Human Sexuality is a comprehensive, progressive, and in-depth research-based examination of human sexuality, covering both depth and breadth of contemporary issues in human sexuality. It would be an ideal text for a course for psychology students looking to gain a broad understanding of the field of human sexuality.
Professor Kristen P. Mark, Director of Sexual Health Promotion Lab, University of Kentucky, USA

From the Back Cover

The Psychology of Human Sexuality offers a comprehensive overview of the science behind human sexual behavior from a biopsychosocial perspective. By emphasizing psychological research and theory on human sexuality, renowned sexuality expert Justin J. Lehmiller reveals the psychological importance of possessing familiarity with one’s body for forming healthy sexual relationships, and shows how a lack of such knowledge can lead to sexual and relationship difficulties.

A wide variety of issues and topics are explored, ranging from sexual anatomy, methods, attraction, orientation, relationships, and behaviors, to sexual difficulties and solutions, prostitution, and pornography. Designed to be inclusive and respectful of a diverse audience, Lehmiller’s analysis also includes instructor resources designed to facilitate a dynamic and interactive classroom environment and enhance critical thinking. Approaching the topic with a combination of sensitivity and scholarly rigor, The Psychology of Human Sexuality offers rich insights into the latest theories and research that shape our understanding of the psychological aspects of human sexuality.
