Most studies of deviant behavior in American society take for granted the moral meanings that the deviant gives to his conduct. Using these moral meanings as a focus of inquiry, the sociologists in this volume attempt to show how the individual attaches meanings to the actual events of his life.

In Part I, the authors try to reorient the traditional perspective of the sociological theory of deviance that sees man as the product of the social order, as well as the more recent phenomenological of existential perspective that views social order as only one possibility of man’s purposeful actions. Parts II and III consist of empirical studies of the theoretical problems dealt with in Part I.

“The various chapters ranging in theme from suicide to nudism are unified into a persuasive thesis that challenges many of the postulates of orthodox sociology. Douglas and his associates have produced what may become a new standard text in graduate courses.” – Library Journal

After An Affair, Who Owns the Relationship?
June 24, 2013
Noon-1:00pm PDT
(or anytime, via recording)
Cellphone records, email passwords, intimate details of when and where--after an affair, does one person gain the right to whatever information they want? Does the unfaithful person have to leave the house if the angry party demands it? Who decides if the children get told--and what they're told?

It's hard to maintain a systems perspective when a patient wants us to simply see a selfish betrayer and a heartbroken betrayed, or a deprived, desperate partner and an indifferent, withholding mate. To explore fresh ways of looking at affairs & fidelity, we'll examine:
  • Should the betrayed acquire power as a result of being betrayed?
  • How can we get couples in conflict to reconcile as partners?
  • How can we help couples draw and maintain boundaries around their wounded relationship?
  • What are the existential issues confronting both parties after an affair--and why is it crucial to address these?
The phone seminar is June 24, noon-1pm PDT. The fee includes a recording of the call--plus 30 downloadable slides--so if you can't make it in real time, you can listen at your convenience!

Sexual Intelligence

With engaging stories from his private practice, Marty shows how our ideas about sex - and ourselves - are more important than a perfect body or exotic techniques. 

Sexual Intelligence  offers a robust perspective that makes it impossible for people to fail at sex, because they don't aim for success.

"Read this book if you want to improve your sex life."
~ Psychology Today


Each month, Sexual Intelligence™  examines the sexual implications of current events, politics, technology, popular culture, and the media.

Dr. Marty Klein is a Certified Sex Therapist and sociologist with a special interest in public policy and sexuality. He has written 6 books, over 100 print articles, and has published 7 sets of training CDs. Each year he trains thousands of professionals in North America and abroad in clinical skills, human sexuality, and policy issues. 
Last week I had the privilege of introducing Dan Savage at a banquet honoring him as 2013 Humanist of the Year.   Previous winners of this award include Gloria Steinem, Kurt Vonnegut, Jonas Salk, Margaret Sanger, and Buckminster Fuller. Why does Dan deserve to be part of this group?

This weekend I spoke at the annual meeting of the American Humanist Association. I started by explaining why humanists need a better understanding of sex...
