The most current, comprehensive, and applied book available for the Human Sexuality course, Our Sexuality, Sixth Edition, continues to provide instructors and students with a sensitive, thorough overview that leaves nothing left unsaid. Like no other author team, Crooks and Baur provide a comprehensive and academically sound introduction to the biological, psychosocial, behavioral, and cultural aspects of sexuality in a way that is personally meaningful to students. Crooks and Baur's presentation of all the essential topics is always factual, always accurate, yet warm, sensitive, and caring. Long known as the book professors turned to for the most up-to-date, complete coverage, Our Sexuality has been carefully and thoroughly revised to address the issues and concerns that today's students face, while retaining the readability, practicality, and nonjudgemental perspective that have made it a success for over 20 years.
