Publisher Comments:

This book's thirty essays explore philosophically the nature and morality of sexual perversion, cybersex, masturbation, homosexuality, contraception, same-sex marriage, promiscuity, pedophilia, date rape, sexual objectification, teacher-student relationships, pornography, and prostitution. Authors include Martha Nussbaum, Thomas Nagel, Alan Goldman, John Finnis, Sallie Tisdale, Robin West, Alan Wertheimer, John Corvino, Cheshire Calhoun, Jerome Neu, and Alan Soble, among others. A valuable resource for sex researchers as well as undergraduate courses in the philosophy of sex.

The book for the most part is relatively easy to read. I like that there are many short studies, case studies or short chapters of readings. It makes it much easier to read (especially for someone who has a learning disability like ADHD or Dyslexia. There is definitely a LOT of information to take in within the book, so I may feel a little differently if I had to read more than the equivalent of just half the book all semester. Philosophy topics are difficult by nature, so I wouldn't advise it for the average college freshman, but for a junior or senior it is do-able.
