In the new 4-COLOR third edition of Choices in Sexuality, the authors once again provide students with a valuable tool for learning about human sexuality, in society and in their own lives. The choices theme is integrated throughout the text, beginning in the first chapter, with information on the nature of choices and decision-making skills, and in the rest of the chapters, with Personal Choices sections that give students an opportunity to think about how they might respond in different situations. The third edition includes two new chapters, one on love and attachment and the other on the commercialization of sex, and it has been thoroughly updated with the most current research available.
