With an interpersonal focus, Hock's Human Sexuality emphasizes the choice, awareness and responsibility that is integral to a planned, proactive, and well-educated sexual philosophy.

Using an interpersonal, psycho-social foundation that approaches core content from a student perspective, this text focuses on the topics that are most critical and of greatest relevance to the students' diverse personal lives and their interactions with others. Written in a casual, easy-to-read, conversational style that will help them be more comfortable with and more connected to the course material, Roger Hock encourages and challenges students to consolidate the ideas and knowledge gained from the text into the growth of his or her personal sexual philosophy.
