Gender and Sexual Behavior asks: "How does gender influence our sexual
attitudes and behaviors?"  Sexual behavior represents perhaps the most
highly gendered aspect of interactions.  This course will examine
current understanding of the relationship of gender to various aspects
of human sexuality including: sexual behavior patterns in various
populations; sexual norms and the sexual double standard; sexual
attitudes; attraction and love; sexual relationships; dynamics of
sexual interactions and communication; contraception and fertility;
sexual interactions and communication; contraception and fertility;
sexually transmitted diseases; sexual health/risk behaviors; sexual
anatomy & functioning; sexual enhancement and therapy.

This course offers in-depth analysis of gender behavioral issues
related to sexuality, and will be of most interest to students with
some previous background in courses related to gender, whether within
fields like sociology, psychology, education, health studies, nursing,
or gender studies.
