About this item

There exists a wide range of misconceptions concerning human sexuality, many of which are certified by self-appointed "experts" and passed on as the absolute truth; some of which are even taught in schools. Some of these misconceptions are so misleading as to be dangerous while others can cause needless worry and anxiety

50 Great Myths of Human Sexuality seeks to dispel commonly accepted myths and misunderstandings surrounding human sexuality. Authors Schwartz and Kempner provide an enlightening, fascinating and challenging book that covers the fifty areas they believe individuals must understand to have a safe, pleasurable and healthy sex life. Encompassing heterosexual and same-sex relationships where possible, these include myths surrounding pre-marital sex, ******, sexual diseases, fantasy, ******, contraception, and understanding emotions such as jealousy, body image insecurity, passionate love and sexual aggression and how they affect sexual health and happiness

Based on their collective years of experience working in the field of human sexuality, the authors provide an enlightening, fascinating and challenging book for students learning about human sexuality, and an engaging introduction for general readers interested in questions about the human behavior, sexuality, and gender diversity

"50 Great Myths of Human Sexuality is an entertaining, accessible, and well researched guide for young adults, educators, clinicians, and policy makers to the real life questions people have about sexuality today. Although some of the authors' conclusions will be controversial to some readers, this book is sure to open minds and help readers explore their own values"

The Rev. Debts W. Haffner, President, Religious Institute, Author, From Diapers To Dating: A Parent's Guide to Raising Sexually Healthy Children

"Schwartz and Kempner have written a smart book on a wonderful topic: sex, courtship, romance and attachment--the core of human life. It's fully researched and packed with information important to us all. It's fascinating and everything you always wanted to know about sex"
