Solving America's Sexual Crises by Ira L. Reiss

Book Description

Noted sexologist cites honesty, equality, and responsibility as key to solving to our nation's sexual dilemma. Rape, teen pregnancy, child sexual abuse, and AIDS still plague us despite new technology and increased sexual awareness. Religious leaders blame the media for our sexual problems, while others remain ignorant or in denial. Sociologist Ira L. Reiss contends that only real solutions will result in a new generation of sexual problem solvers. In "Solving America's Sexual Crises", he argues that we can reduce alarming rates of sexually transmitted disease, sexual violence and abuse, and unwanted pregnancy through responsible dialogue and co-operative action. Reiss' direct, lucid, and challenging analysis of these problems, demonstrates that our current sexual malaise emerged from Victorian attitudes, religious intolerance, ignorance, and misconceptions about sexuality. "Solving America's Sexual Crises" is a pluralistic approach, touching on everything from safe-sex to sex therapy. Only by altering our outmoded, dogmatic notions about sexuality can we begin to manage and eventually solve current and future sexual problems.
