Overview

In a personal, nontechnical, and informal style, eminent researcher Ira L. Reiss discusses the many situations he has encountered during the past fifty years while researching sexuality and developing useful and innovative explanations of its different aspects. Most of the problems that were present during those years are still confronting those who work on human sexuality. Reiss discusses his experiences in sexual science in areas such as premarital sex, the sexual revolution, Masters and Johnson's therapy, feminism and sexuality, crises in sexual organizations, responses to HIV/AIDS, child and adolescent sexuality, radical social constructionism, biology versus sexual science, international trends, and the movement toward a Ph.D. in sexual science. The insights and solutions Reiss proposes are of great importance to all those who are interested in the sexual issues that affect people today.

This book is an informal, non technical account of my fifty plus years in sexual science. I comment on the wide range of controversial situations and people that I've encountered over the years. I present the story of my experiences and discuss the sexual science issues still relevant today in social science, therapy, biology, psychology, sexual organizations, politics, public health crises, radical social constructionism, international trends in attitudes and behaviors, the movement toward a PhD in sexual science and more. I present my evaluations and suggestions concerning these areas and the future of sexual science. The key audiences for this book are those people in any profession whose work involves them with issues concerning human sexuality as well as anyone with a serious interest in understanding more about sexual science.
