Sex, Ethics, and Communication
by Valerie Peterson
“Sex, Ethics, and Communication offers not only sound information, but also a rich perspective that encourages people to reflect on ethical and relational issues that are entwined with sexual choices. This book would be especially valuable to young people who are just becoming sexually interested and active.”
–Julia T. Wood, Lineberger Professor of Humanities,Caroline H. and Thomas S. Royster Professor of Graduate Education, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Sex, Ethics, and Communication is organized in three parts:
-Sexual ethics–discussing responsibility, vulnerability, the problems of categorization, and different ethics of communication.
-Sex and communication–discussing how sex is a form of communication, how sex and spoken communication interact, and how sex is spoken about in cultural metaphors and narratives.
-The way ethical sex is related to other territories of cultural concern–work, pay, marriage, gay marriage, abortion, child rearing, and more.
