This book is an overview of key debates, research findings and theories in the area of sex and sexuality. Controversial issues are discussed in an informative and fair, balanced manner. With its sociological orientation, Perspectives in Human Sexuality employs a range of empirical and theoretical resources, including those which utilise scientific, medical, historical and ethical knowledge in order to elucidate the critical issues affecting contemporary life. This is the first textbook written especially for undergraduate students to offer a detailed and comprehensive introduction to sex and sexuality from an Australian and New Zealand perspective. This work examines issues such as sex and age, sex work and gay, lesbian and queer sex. Leading Australian and New Zealand authors in the field of sex and sexuality have contributed to the book. The book deals with sexuality from an Australasian perspective, addressing the specific concerns and interests of an Australasian audience, providing it with a unique standing in the current market.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
