An Introduction to the Study of Sexuality Paperback / softback
by R. Horrocks
This book examines some of the ways in which sexuality has been described and interpreted in the West.
The main models examined are: the Christian view of sex as sinful; the psychoanalytical model, including such notions as the sexual drive, infantile sexuality, the Oedipus complex, and the distinction between male and female sexuality; the 'social construction' model, which proposes that 'sexuality' is a modern concept; and the links between sexuality and spirituality.
There is also some consideration of feminist and gay approaches to sexuality, and the complicated subject of male sexuality.
