Human Sexuality

This course is an introduction to the sociological study of sexuality. While sex is about individual bodies and activities, we will be looking at the ways that sex and sexuality are fundamentally social and central to our experiences as humans. With whom we have sex, how often we have sex, how we identify sexually and perform our sexualities, are not purely the result of biology or individual choice, but are heavily dependent upon the social worlds in which we are embedded. Throughout the semester, we will explore how social practices and institutions impact our sexual behaviors and attitudes.
