Description - Childhood Sexuality by Theo Sandfort

What is "normal sexual behavior" in a child? Childhood sexuality is an often neglected field in sex research. There is very little literature about what one might call "normal child sexual behavior." The existing literature on child sexuality gives the impression that the only way in which children figure in sexological research is as objects of sexual abuse. The child, as a subject learning about sexuality and capable of experiencing sexual pleasures, doesn't seem to exist in scholarly papers. Childhood Sexuality: Normal Behavior and Development does not focus on sexual abuse but instead deals with what can be described as "normal" sexual behavior and development in children under age 12. This valuable book offers information about the relationship between age and sexual development, both mental and physical, in both males and females. Childhood Sexuality: Normal Behavior and Development explores several issues, including: * what children ages two to six think or know about sexuality * the ways that children learn about sexuality and procreation * the process of body discovery among children * what normal sexual behaviors to expect in children of various ages * the importance of growing up in a positive environment * the differences in sexual development between children of the same age and gender * ways to get honest answers from children and parents about sexuality Comprehensive and enlightening, Childhood Sexuality examines the difficulties of gathering this information from children and gives insight into questions that need to be answered in the future. This guide delivers a diverse look at the complex and intriguing topic of normal child sexuality and the progress that is being made in this area of research.
