The Sociology Reference Guide series is designed to provide a solid foundation for the research of various sociological topics. This volume explores a variety of problems in deviant and high risk sexual activity. Stemming from the sexual inhibition of the 1960s sexual revolution, the increase in promiscuity and risky behavior has broadened the scope of sexual topics in sociology.
