Sexuality across the life course( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does sexual behavior change over the life course? When do youths begin to have sex? How does sexual satisfaction affect the quality and stability of marriage? With the rise of the AIDS epidemic and the proliferation of sex in movies, TV, and magazines, how have sexual attitudes changed in America over the past three decades? Distinguished sociologist Alice S. Rossi brings together fourteen diverse essays on sexual behavior, covering adolescence through old age and addressing such groups as singles, married couples, and homosexuals. This volume also looks at the effects of chronic disease and medication on sexual functioning, recent developments in psychotherapy for sexual problems, and sexual abuse of children, incest, and rape. Among the book's findings are the following: women who start their sex lives early remain sexually active longer; by the end of the first year of marriage, frequency of sex drops by almost half; although the frequency of sex declines steeply with age, the level of satisfaction with one's sex life changes very little over time; African-Americans tend to be more permissive than whites on premarital and extramarital sexual relations, but less permissive on homosexual relations; and married women today are just as likely today to complain of "too little" sex as "too much"--Three decades ago, such women were more likely to complain of "too much" than "too little."

National Survey of Midlife Development in the United States (MIDUS), 1995-1996 by Orville Gilbert Brim( )

2 editions published in 1999 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Survey of Midlife Development in the United States (MIDUS) is a collaborative, interdisciplinary investigation of patterns, predictors, and consequences of midlife development in the areas of physical health, psychological well-being, and social responsibility. Respondents were drawn from a nationally representative random-digit-dial sample of noninstitutionalized, English-speaking adults, aged 25-74, selected from working telephone banks in the coterminous United States. Those queried participated in an initial telephone interview and responded to a mail questionnaire. Part 1, Main Data, contains responses from the main survey of 4,242 respondents. Respondents were asked to provide extensive information on their physical and mental health throughout their adult lives, and to assess the ways in which their lifestyles, including relationships and work-related demands, contributed to the conditions experienced. Those queried were asked to describe their histories of physical ailments, including heart-related conditions and cancer, as well as the treatment and/or lifestyle changes they went through as a result. A series of questions addressed alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drug use, and focused on history of use, regularity of use, attempts to quit, and how the use of those substances affected respondents' physical and mental well-being. Additional questions addressed respondents' sense of control over their health, their awareness of changes in their medical conditions, commitment to regular exercise and a healthy diet, experience with menopause, the decision-making process used to deal with health concerns, experiences with nontraditional remedies or therapies, and history of attending support groups. Respondents were asked to compare their overall well-being with that of their peers and to describe social, physical, and emotional characteristics typical of ...
