Drawing on the most recent findings in biology, psychology, and social anthropology, The Penguin Atlas of Human Sexual Behavior shows in easily assimilated visual form how sexual practices and social attitudes are determined as much by nationality, ethnicity, and religion as by age and gender. The innovative maps and graphics in this atlas give new insights into many of today's most controversial subjects, such as: human genetics (is our sexuality programmed?), the implications of cloning, why we choose the partners we do, what the real purpose of our relationships is, and infertility. Indeed, public reaction to certain sexual behaviors is powerful but rarely constant. This remarkable survey of human sexual behavior around the world reveals intriguing differences--as well as some surprising similarities--from country to country and between different cultures.
