When do youths begin to have sex? What is the relationship between sexuality and marriage? How does sexual behaviour change in later years? With the rise of the AIDS epidemic and the proliferation of sex in movies, TV and magazines, how have sexual attitudes changed in America since the 1960s? Alice S. Rossi brings together 14 essays on sexual behaviour, from adolescence to old age, and covering such groups as singles, married couples, homosexuals and African-American men and women. This volume also looks at the effects of chronic disease and medication on sexual functioning, recent developments in psychotherapy for sexual problems, and sexual abuse of children, incest and rape.
