Canada in the twenty-first century is rapidly evolving with respect to human sexuality. Underlying this change is a growing recognition and acceptance of diversity with respect to many aspects of sexuality. Human Sexuality in a World of Diversity fully embraces and affirms this diversity, especially within Canadian society.


The authors made every effort to provide a textbook that is clear and succinct but also embodies the highest standards of academic rigor. In addition to emphasizing theory and up-to-date research, practical applications that are relevant to students’ lives are included.
