With its fresh, fun, and hip approach, SEXUALITY NOW: EMBRACING DIVERSITY, THIRD EDITION, helps to teach students what they need and want to know about sexuality while clearly conveying foundational biological and health issues and citing current and classic research. The text continues to be a product of author Janell Carroll's partnership with her students, answering the questions and concerns that students have about themselves and their sexuality with scientific fact, sensitivity, humor, and unmatched candor. Carroll presents the range of sexual orientations and behaviors and takes into account the social, religious, ethnic, racial, and cultural contexts of today's students; this edition includes even more examples and research on sexual diversity both within and across cultures. An excellent resource package supports instructors and students, including videos, an online tutorial featuring diagnostic quizzing and automatic grading, and the PowerLecture presentation tool with readymade lecture slides, text images, and questions on slides for use with student response system software and clickers.

Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY White country and ONLY into White countries.
The Netherlands and
Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.
Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY White country and ONLY White countries to "assimilate," i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites.
What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-Blacks were brought into EVERY Black country and ONLY into Black countries?
How long would it take anyone to realize I'm not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?
And how long would it take any sane Black man to notice this and what kind of psycho Black man wouldn't object to this?
But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the White race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

I teach Human Sexuality, Sexual Health, and General/Applied Psychology. This book was mandatory for my Human Sexuality students, but I photocopied certain sections for my Sexual Health and Psychology students. This book gives full, accuate information with no bias or waffling. Thw format is easy to read and straight-to-the point. Although, some chapters are frivolous and unrelated (i.e. the chapter on communication). I highly recommend this book to readers of all levels, however I forewarn the nature and content of the book is for higher level students such as mine (college/university level). A fantastic book! Two thumbs up for Mrs. Caroll!!!!
