Beyond Gay or Straight: Understanding Sexual Orientation
Is sexual orientation an inborn trait, or does it somehow develop in the unfolding personality? In this remarkably candid work, author Jan Clausen explores the intense and often emotional debate surrounding these questions. Moving from historical and cross-cultural surveys to scientific studies of modern sexual identity, from the political and social ramifications of “being different” to distinctly personal analysis, Clausen examines the spectrum of variations in sexual orientation, allowing the reader to formulate his or her own idea of what constitutes “the mystery of desire” and how it informs individual identity.
