With simple cases of premature ejaculation or anorgasmia becoming increasingly rare, clinicians are now utilizing a sophisticated array of multidisciplinary approaches to treat a complex variety of challenging problems and patient populations. Bringing together, under one cover, case studies and clinical discussions by the very authorities whose work is changing the field, Case Studies in Sex Therapy provides a state-of-the-art guide to current clinical practice. Chapters in the first section focus on cases of sexual desire disorders and explore such issues as desire disparity between partners, clinical interventions in marital and sex therapy, biological aspects of inhibited sexual desire, treatment considerations with a homosexual couple, the application of integrative therapy for treating secondary low sex desire, and the many factors that may contribute to sexual avoidance. The next section demonstrates both the opportunities and the complex challenges posed to the clinician by the array of new medical, surgical, and pharmacological therapies. Addressing the growing interest in sexual addiction and compulsion, the third section covers controversial issues such as the treatment of a sexually addictive client and the treatment implications when a client has been sexually exploited by another therapist.

Using humor and a contemporary voice, HUMAN SEXUALITY FROM CELLS TO SOCIETY, 1E engages students to acquire a greater knowledge of their bodies, their values, and their relationships with others. This concise, comprehensive, and up-to-date text emphasizes critical thinking -- in both human sexuality research as well as the students’ own sexual lives -- and is geared to help students understand the diverse foundations of sexuality, as well as provide skills to evaluate current research and data. Working from a multidisciplinary perspective, the author’s approach is accessible to both students and instructors without a background in biology or critical thinking, and allows students to see how human sexuality interrelates with psychology, biology, health, law, media, religion, and other topics that at first glance seem unrelated.

For three decades, Alan Soble has supplied the authoritative roadmap for students and faculty who study the subject of sex. In this new fifth edition of The Philosophy of Sex, Soble and co-editor Nicholas Power have collected thirty contemporary essays that explore philosophically, conceptually, and theologically the nature, social meanings, and morality of contemporary sexual phenomena. Contributors address myriad topics, including cybersex and the Internet, masturbation, contraception, sexual perversion, gay and lesbian sexuality, same-sex marriage, casual sex and promiscuity, pedophilia, rape and date rape, sexual use and objectification, sexual relationships between teachers and students, pornography, and prostitution. NEW to this edition: Each of the thirty essays is preceded by an informative introduction written by the two editors and each essay is followed by a set of provocative study questions developed by the editors to stimulate critical thinking about sexuality. Contributing authors, some of whom were commissioned for this new edition, include Martha Nussbaum, Thomas Nagel, Alan Goldman, John Finnis, Sallie Tisdale, Jerome Neu, Robin West, Louise Collins, Alan Wertheimer, Greta Christina, John Corvino, Cheshire Calhoun, Raja Halwani, Yolanda Estes, and others. The editors provide a comprehensive bibliography of over 700 philosophical and general readings in sexuality. Intended in part as a textbook for use in university courses in the philosophy of sex, gender, and ethics, the book is also a valuable resource for researchers in sexuality and a reader-friendly introduction to puzzles about sexuality for anyone who enjoys exploring this ubiquitous human experience.
