The Sociology Reference Guide series is designed to provide a solid foundation for the research of various sociological topics. This volume provides an introduction to the general concepts of and research surrounding human sexuality and sexual orientation. The essays follow the effects and transformations of the "Kinsey Report" in 1948, which changed the mainstream notions of sexuality and paved the way for the exploration of sexual orientation and related issues, particularly throughout the last fifty years.
