Overview

Through an in-depth look at the sexual lives of real people, Different Sexual Worlds illustrates the myriad dimensions of human sexuality. Developed as a supplementary text for college-level courses, this innovative book charts the sexual development and maturation of ten men and women in order to help students gain an integrated perspective on human sexuality. Among those whose stories are told are Libby, who overcame emotionally dependent behavior and achieved a satisfying sexual identity; Ed, a gay man who lived with and eventually died from the AIDS virus; Jennifer, who chose to become a prostitute to escape a disastrous home life; and Nick, whose sexual exploration helped him grow and find the perspective he needed to be able to commit to a long-term relationship. Dick Skeen's thoughtful analysis of the unique stories contained in the book and the intriguing questions he poses for discussion make this book required reading for courses on human sexuality.
