[The readings in Sexuality Today—and Tomorrow: contemporary issues in human sexuality] are intended to supplement a basic text in college and university human sexuality courses. [Coeditors Gordon and Roger W. Libby] believe that information about alternative lifestyles provides a basis necessary for intelligent decision making, and emphasize a morality based on responsible relationships rather than dogma. In five sections, each introduced by an essay, they cover changing sex roles and sexual behaviors, the politics of sociosexual issues, variations in sexual expression, social ethics and personal morals, and future sexuality…. Most of the articles are competent and thought provoking; however, few of the contributors are adequately identified. The book omits consideration of black sexuality included in other works of this kind, but covers such often neglected topics as prostitution, transsexualism, and bisexuality.
