An Undergraduate Library Subject Guide providing suggested resources and other information for beginning research on the topic Human Sexuality.

Background Information

The SAGE Encylopedia of LGBTQ Studies states  that human sexuality is "composed of three distinct domains: attraction, behavior, and sexual identity." Human sexuality research studies how these three domains intersect, their biological, social and psychological relationships and the cross-sections between sexuality and other disciplines.
