The book has five sections. The first, titled Background, has superb chapters on research and male and female sexuality and should be required reading for everyone with a professional interest in sexuality. The Core Issues section, besides covering the topics of gender transpositions, varieties of orientation, and erotic fantasies, refreshingly includes a chapter on love. Although victimization has its own section, the topic is frequently addressed elsewhere in the book. The victimizations caused by HIV/AIDS, incest, childhood sexual abuse, varieties of rape, therapist-patient sex, and Internet addiction are discussed, as is treatment of sexual minorities, disabled people, and older adults.
