Summary "The scientific study of sexual identity has made great strides in the five decades since Kinsey's early investigations. We know that sexual orientation exists on a continuum and not within a list of static categories such as "straight" and "gay", yet it's not always clear what should be measured, or what should "count." It's understood that sexual orientation is an intricate blend of sexual attraction, behavior, and identity, but it can also be informed by political identity, social behavior, and nuances of attraction that may possibly transcend sex." "However one defines sexuality, Contemporary Perspectives on Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Identities relates these concepts to larger societal issues while also highlighting critical grey areas in the knowledge base, from the psychobiology of desire to the fluidity of adolescent sexual experience and self-expression."--Jacket.
