Let’s Talk About Sex

Histories of Sexuality in Australia from Federation to the Pill

From the start of the new Australian nation in 1901, to the use of the female contraceptive pill in 1961, Let’s Talk About Sex explores the ways sexuality has been constructed, understood and experienced in Australia. Far from being something hidden and private, this work brings sexuality out into the open, and explains why sex is of social, cultural, political and economic importance. Let’s Talk About Sex is an inclusive history, surveying multiple and interwoven forms of sexuality, desire, pleasure, regulation and resistance. It begins with the long Victorian period: the hidden desires of women and the “hydraulic” sexual needs of men, both in the cities and on the frontier. It moves across the decades, considering heterosexuality, homosexuality, lesbians and nascent ideas about queer and sexual difference. Lisa Featherstone highlights the tensions of the ages: venereal disease, homophobia, birth control, rape and child sexual assault. She analyses the ways non-normative sexuality was constructed as evil and perverse, but also how men and women responded to this pathologising of their desires. Let’s Talk About Sex provides a fascinating account of sex, gender, age and race, across the formative years of Australian society.

For his 2007 critically acclaimed 33 1/3 series title, Let's Talk About Love, Carl Wilson went on a quest to find his inner Céline Dion fan and explore how we define ourselves by what we call good and bad, what we love and what we hate. At once among the most widely beloved and most reviled and lampooned pop stars of the past few decades, Céline Dion's critics call her mawkish and overblown while millions of fans around the world adore her "huge pipes�? and even bigger feelings. How can anyone say which side is right? This new, expanded edition goes even further, calling on thirteen prominent writers and musicians to respond to themes ranging from sentiment and kitsch to cultural capital and musical snobbery. The original text is followed by lively arguments and stories from Nick Hornby, Krist Novoselic, Ann Powers, Mary Gaitskill, James Franco, Sheila Heti and others. In a new afterword, Carl Wilson examines recent cultural changes in love and hate, including the impact of technology and social media on how taste works (or doesn't) in the 21st century.

alkabout Adults is a practical resource to help therapists or support staff to develop self-awareness and self-esteem in adults. It has been particularly aimed at adults with an intellectual disability (learning disability) or older children with special needs. It has been adapted from the Talkabout for Children: developing self-awareness and self-esteem book to be suitable for an older audience. This means that some of the activities are almost identical but a number of them have been adapted to be more appropriate. There are also some new activities such as the 'A book about me.' which enables the adults to make up a book over the course of the sessions that will summarise some keys personal facts. This can work well as an addition to a communication passport or equivalent, or can stand alone as an alternative. Talkabout for Adults is a stand-alone resource with approximately a year's worth of activities to develop self-awareness and self-esteem. It has 50 activities to do with adults and it has been successfully piloted at Speaking Space. It includes: a short assessment of self-awareness and self-esteem; a year's worth of work on self-awareness and self-esteem including 50 activities and some worksheets; practical suggestions to make your group work successful including 25 group cohesion activities, a plan for intervention, and forms for monitoring and evaluation. This resource continues to use the Talkabout hierarchical approach to teaching skills, that is, basic self-awareness skills are taught prior to more complex skills such as social skills and friendship skills. This also means that this resource is designed to be used logically from topic 1 through to topic 8. Most of the activities are more suited to working in a group setting but some of them can be adapted for one-to-one work. Alex Kelly is a speech and language therapist who specialises in working with children who have low self esteem, and difficulty with their social skills and friendship skills. She spent 23 years working as a speech and language therapist in the NNHS but now runs her own company - Alex Kelly Ltd. She provides social skills training and consultancy to schools and organisations across the UK and overseas. Her company also provides speech and language therapy in a number of special schools in eh south of England.

Business as usual ist vorbei! Das wissen wir längst. Und deshalb gibt es kaum noch Unternehmen, in denen das Thema Change nicht ganz oben auf der Tagesordnung steht. Aber wie nachhaltige Veränderung wirklich funktioniert, das weiß so recht keiner. Dabei gibt es in Zeiten permanenter Disruption nur zwei Alternativen: Wir können auf den Zug des Wandels aufspringen oder wir bleiben am Bahnsteig stehen. Wir können uns entweder verändern oder wir werden vom Markt verschwinden. In seinem Motivations-Manifest versorgt Sie Ilja Grzeskowitz mit dem dazu notwendigen Brainfood. In 77 1/7 inspirierenden Impulsen zeigt er auf, wie es gelingt, eine Change-Kultur zu kreieren, die von Offenheit, Innovation und dem Mut zu neuen Wegen gekennzeichnet ist. Denn nur wenn wir als Persönlichkeit wachsen, können wir bessere Unternehmer, Führungskräfte oder Mitarbeiter werden.

Christliche Aidsprävention unter ghanaischen Jugendlichen

Christliche Aidsprävention wird häufig auf die Betonung sexueller Abstinenz und Treue sowie die Ablehnung von Kondomen reduziert. Die Debatte - so wichtig sie auch ist - greift jedoch viel zu kurz. Der Vergleich christlicher und säkularer Curricula im afrikanischen Kontext hat die Vermutung bestätigt, dass christlich geprägte Schulungsprogramme etliche Vorteile bieten. Und darüber hinaus hat dieser Vergleich auch Überraschendes ergeben. So liegt z. B. die größte Stärke nicht etwa in einer strikteren Sexualmoral, sondern in der Berücksichtigung von Spiritualität. Diese und andere Chancen christlicher Präventionsprogramme werden in diesem Buch dargestellt. Ebenso werden aber auch ihre Grenzen diskutiert. Schließlich geht es um die Frage: Wie können Kirchen das vorhandene Potenzial noch besser ausschöpfen und ihre 'Pfunde' bei der Entwicklung effektiver Präventionsprogramme gezielter einsetzen? Und lassen sich Begrenzungen möglicherweise überwinden?

She's the spiciest ingredient in the legendary rap group Salt-N-Pepa, and the outspoken star of VH1's smash-hit reality show. She's Sandy "Pepa" Denton -- and she's never at a loss for words. Now, in her first tell-all book, Pepa talks about sex, music, life, love, fame, and so much more.... "Most of you know me as Pep, or Pepa, the fun-loving half of Salt-N-Pepa. I am the party girl, the one who is down for whatever. But behind the laughs and the smiles is a whole lot of pain." Funny, fearless, and full of life, Sandy "Pepa" Denton is a pop culture icon whose remarkable story is every bit as captivating and provocative as her Grammy Award-winning music. This is the real Pepa -- upfront, uncensored, unstoppable -- and these are the memoirs of a true pioneer, fighter, survivor, and inspiration to women everywhere. For the first time, Pepa talks about: • Her troubled childhood • Surviving abuse • Her first encounters with Cheryl "Salt" James • Salt-N-Pepa's instant success • Her failed marriages and her escape from domestic abuse • Her "breakup" with Salt and their eventual "reunion" • Her triumphant comeback on the VH1 reality shows The Surreal Life, Fame Games, and The Salt-N-Pepa Show Filled with surprising insights, outrageous anecdotes, and celebrity cameos -- including Queen Latifah, Martin Lawrence, Janice Dickinson, Omarosa, Missy Elliott, L.L. Cool J, supermodel Caprice, Ron Jeremy, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopez, "Spinderella," and many others -- Let's Talk About Pep offers a fascinating glimpse behind the fame, family, failures, and successes of celebrity...and into the faithful heart of a woman who will always value the good friends she found along the way. In the words of Sandy "Pepa" Denton, "there's no walking away from that."

This book adopts the format of the editorsÆ previous book, Buddhists Talk about Jesus, Christians Talk about the Buddha. In that book eight scholar-practitioners--four of them Buddhist and four Christian--explored their relationship to the great religious figure of the other tradition. Then the remaining contributors, two from each tradition, addressed themselves, rebuttal fashion, to the views expressed. In the new book the subject is the differences and similarities between Buddhist meditation and Christian prayer. What can a Christian, for example, learn from the mental and physical rigor of Buddhist meditative practice? What can a Buddhist learn from traditional Christian prayer? Can one mix distinct religious identity (Christian) with practice techniques associated with another religion (Buddhist) without compromising the religious specificity of either the identities or the techniques? Christian contributors include Frances S. Adeney, Mary Frohlich, Paul O. Ingram, Ursula King, Terry C. Muck, Yagi Seiichi, and Bardwell Smith. Buddhist contributors include Robert Aitken, Grace Burford, Rita Gross, John Makransky, Ken Tanaka, Robert Thurman, and Taitetsu Unno.
