Human Sexuality in a Diverse Society

Nicole K. McNichols, Matthew Numer

This is the newly updated (and renamed) Fall 2022 version of "Human Sexuality: A Critical Introduction". Human Sexuality in a Diverse Society delivers a modern, comprehensive, and research-based exploration of human sexuality in our diverse world. Taking a sex-positive approach and featuring the most up-to-date coverage of news stories, legislation, and published data, Human Sexuality in a Diverse Society engages students to think critically and understand diverse perspectives that may be different from their own. Each topic is further enriched with interactive graphics, in-text critical thinking discussions, and podcast interviews to stimulate students’ interest as they explore contemporary issues in human sexuality.
