Sex in the Brain How your brain controls your sex life

Sex in the Brain How your brain controls your sex life

Author: Amee Baird Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/09/2019

What controls our sex lives? Our brains. Yet there is surprisingly little research into the ways our brains influence our sex drive. Extraordinary insights into how the brain works can be gained when something goes wrong through brain injury or disease. In Sex in the Brain, clinical neuropsychologist Dr Amee Baird takes readers on an entertaining and informative tour of the sexiest bits of the human brain. Spiced with real case studies, the book reveals pathologies no longer hidden in medical journals or the bedrooms of people whose sex lives are undergoing dramatic change, for better and worse. In the style of popular neurology guru Oliver Sacks, Baird captures the humanity and complexity of patients, even when their neurological challenges have rendered them permanently or temporarily unlikeable. Drawing from true stories, this revealing and sometimes heartbreaking book unfolds a better understanding of the links between brain function and our sexual selves. 'The taboo on talking about changes in sex drive and sexual behaviours following brain damage is over! Neuropsychologist Amee Baird's engaging case studies exploring this topic will move as well as educate the general reader, and inspire professionals to incorporate this central human need into their patient assessments and treatments.' - Jenni Ogden, author of Fractured Minds and Trouble in Mind

The Fear of Child Sexuality Young People, Sex, and Agency

The Fear of Child Sexuality Young People, Sex, and Agency

Author: Steven Angelides Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 22/08/2019

Continued public outcries over such issues as the presence of young models in sexually suggestive ads and occurrences of intimate relationships between teachers and students speak to one of the most controversial fears of our time: the entanglement of children and sexuality. In this book, Steven Angelides confronts that very fear, arguing that adult alarm over child sexualization often masks the sexuality of children. Angelides explores how emotional vocabularies of anxiety, shame, and even contempt not only dominate discussions of youth sexuality but also allow adults to avoid acknowledging the sexual agency of young people. Introducing case studies and trends from Australia, the United Kingdom, and North America, he challenges prevalent assumptions toward a variety of topics, among them sex education, age-of-consent laws, and technology-driven phenomena like sexting. Along the way, Angelides contends that an unwillingness to recognize the sexual agency that children possess results less in the protection of young people than in their marginalization.

The Reproductive Industry Intimate Experiences and Global Processes

The Reproductive Industry Intimate Experiences and Global Processes

Author: Vera Mackie Format: Hardback Release Date: 24/07/2019

From its origins in 1978, when the first babies conceived through in vitro fertilization (IVF) were born in the UK and India, assisted reproduction has become a global industry. Contributors to The Reproductive Industry: Intimate Experiences and Global Processes reflect on the global dimensions of IVF and assisted reproductive technologies, examining how people have used these technologies to create diverse family forms, including gay, lesbian, and transgender parenthood as well as complex configurations of genetic, gestational, and social parenthood. The authors examine how IVF and other reproductive technologies have and have not circulated around the globe; how reproductive technologies can be situated historically, nationally, locally, and culturally; and the ways in which culture, practices, regulations, norms, families, and kinship ties may be reinforced or challenged through the use of assisted reproduction.
