Full Description

How and why does sexual attraction happen? This book is an exploration of the universal yet highly individualized experience of being sexually attracted to another person.* Identifies the numerous elements that surround and affect sexual attraction, including bodily features, relationships, and social factors, and examines each to illuminate the individualized experience of attraction that takes place in each case* Pinpoints the triggers for sexual attraction and identifies how men and women, though equally compelled, often express their attraction differently* Explains how males and females typically give attention to the various objects of attraction in distinctly different ways, allowing readers to better understand the complexities of heterosexual interaction* Reveals the relationships between sexual attraction, opposite-sex friendship, and romantic attraction, showing how these can blend together in various ways* Enables readers to understand the basis for sexual experiences and the role it plays in his or her life-a topic that is of great significance for many individuals, yet not a subject that is often or readily discussed
