Abstract:

"Surprisingly -- in this era of proliferating interest in sex research -- the comparative study of human sexual behavior, in all its variation and diversity, has received insufficient attention. Here, eight eminently qualified scholars -- seven anthropologists and one sociologist -- provide a detailed look at the sexual practices, attitudes, and mores of representative societies from one side of the world to the other, and from their observations, the editors formulate a number of hypotheses about human sexual behavior in general. As shown in this volume, human sexual behavior runs the gamut from extreme social inhibition to extreme permissiveness. The great variety of sexual practices, coital techniques, sexual taboos, attitudes towards "perversions," and other aspects of sexuality described in this book attests not only to the malleability of the human personality, but also -- as seen from the perspectives of anthropology -- to the frightening power of society to govern the expression of a basic human drive. This volume, characterized by the scholarship of other volumes from the Kinsey Institute, promises to be a landmark in the anthropological study of sex."--Jacket.
