Sex is a how-to topic. There are hundreds of manuals on how to have explosive, amazing, earth-shattering sex. There are exercise books for the muscles used during sex, cookbooks for meals that increase your desire, books about low sex drive, high sex drive, and everything in between. And yet, in most of these manuals, there is usually one small chapter about sexual health. In this age of breakthrough discoveries about potency and infection, new drugs to combat the full range of sexually transmitted diseases, new technologies for contraception and genital health - there is no single volume that fully explains this extremely important aspect of all the incredible sex going on: sexual health an...

Are you ripped? Do you need to work on your abs? Do you know your ideal body weight? Your body fat index? Increasingly, Americans are being sold on a fitness ideal — not just thin but toned, not just muscular but cut — that is harder and harder to reach. In Body Panic, Shari L. Dworkin and Faye Linda Wachs ask why. How did these particular body types come to be “fit”? And how is it that having an unfit, or “bad,” body gets conflated with being an unfit, or “bad,” citizen? Dworkin and Wachs head to the newsstand for this study, examining ten years worth of men’s and women’s health and fitness magazines to determine the ways in which bodies are “made” in today’s culture. They dissect the images, the workouts, and the ideology being sold, as well as the contemporary links among health, morality, citizenship, and identity that can be read on these pages. While women and body image are often studied together, Body Panic considers both women’s and men’s bodies side-by-side and over time in order to offer a more in-depth understanding of this pervasive cultural trend.

Physical Activity for Health and Fitness Lab Manual

The United States Department of Health and Human Services has released two landmark publications, "Physical Activity and Health: A Report of the Surgeon General "and "2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans." Both of these publications emphasize that physical activity and physical fitness are strongly related to the reduction of risks of morbidity and mortality for a variety of chronic diseases, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, some types of cancer, osteoporosis, and mental illness. Physical activity and fitness also have a positive effect on mental processes and cognitive function, which are particularly important for students. The Surgeon General's report calls for effect...

Don't Get Duped

In the health and fitness industry truth is a scarce commodity, charges Dr. Larry M. Forness.

In this "survival manual," Forness's goal is to teach consumers the critical tools to make them more knowledgeable about these questionable items. The topics covered include the real meaning of ôscientifically proven," methods for quantitatively analyzing suc...
