BISAC: HEA042000

Sexuality can be defined as a process of integrating emotional, somatic, and intellectual and social aspects in ways that enhance one’s own self. It incorporates intimacy, romance, sensuality, eroticism and relationships, and is an important contributing factor to an individual’s quality of life and sense of well-being. In this book, the authors explore perspectives, issues and the role in society of sexuality. Topics discussed in this compilation include the functional measurement to cognitive mechanisms underlying attitudes toward sexuality and intellectual disability; the impact of rheumatic disease on sexual function; adolescent sexual behavior; queer sexuality and online pedagogy; sexual upbringing and sexual satisfaction; and sexuality and aging within correctional facilities.
