The second edition of this ABC is a comprehensive and newly updated presentation of this important, but difficult subject. This edition takes in new subject areas, including transvestism, lesbianism, HIV and cybersex. It offers explicit guidance on dealing with patients with sexual problems, from taking a sexual history to the physical and psychological issues associated with sexual relationships, including infertility, pregnancy and ageing.

Written by leading authorities in the field of sexual health, this book will be a valuable resource for general practitioners, nurses, sexual therapists, students, and all doctors not trained in the speciality.

The book contains both black-and-white and color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book should be included in the essential reading list of all undergraduates and student nurses as it will make up for the abysmal lack of formal teaching in the curricula at most medical and nursing schools in the United Kingdom."
Professor Alan Riley, Professor of Sexual Health in The Sexual Dysfunction Association Newsletter

"It provides an excellent reference for basic information on many aspects of sexual function and problem management. In particular, it highlights the importance of appropriate communication and careful history taking."
South African Medical Journal

"The most important and useful chapter for trainees, clinicians and medical students is the one on how to take a sexual history. There is much to learn from and incorporate in one’s own clinical practice here. Overall, I found this book to be helpful and well produced. It deserves to be on the bookshelves of any sex and relationship therapist."
Professor Dinesh Bhugra in Sexual Relationship Therapy

"[The book’s] stated aim is to educate doctors and in turn defuse ignorance over sex. I defy anyone to deny that this book succeeds... a solid medical textual approach with a celebration of the fun of sex. A wonderfully non-judgemental and frank treatise on human sexuality. [I] hope that it will destroy the hypocrisy and prudery of our culture."

"A richly illustrated, witty and eccellent educational tool for students, undergraduates and clinicians. An important and often neglected topic is how to take a sexual history. Highly recommended." Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews
