This volume brings together two areas of health that are among the foci of current development efforts, as articulated by the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), namely sexual and reproductive health (MDG 5: improve maternal health, target 2: achieve, by 2015, universal access to reproductive health); and Gender (MDG 3: promote gender equality and empower women). Few, if any, published books have dealt in a comprehensive way with public health aspects of these two strongly interrelated areas of health. Most published volumes devoted to sexual and reproductive health have a strong clinical focus, whereas books on gender tend to concentrate primarily on the socio-cultural and anthropological aspects of the subject.
* Focuses on the relationship between sexual and reproductive behaviors and the resulting impact on populations and societies as a group
* Provides a science-based approach to identifying appropriate response plans, adaptations, and mitigation steps for related behaviors
*Explores the financial and societal impact of behavioral choices
*Includes new preface specifically for this audience
The inalienable right to have children is a cornerstone to western societies, and yet for many people, surrogacy remains their only option. This important new book explores this highly contested area through a critical psychology perspective, discussing the many socio-cultural issues and health concerns faced by surrogates, prospective parents and clinical providers. Including empirical research conducted by the authors with both heterosexual and homosexual couples, this is the first book to look holistically and cross-culturally at this provocative topic, and will be of interested to students and researchers within health psychology, gender studies and social work.
The Diary of an Ordinary Chinese Woman's Transformation from an Obedient Asian Wife to a Masochistic Chink Slut: I'm a 29 years old, slim, petite, well-educated Chinese woman. Even though I still look very young compared to other women of my age, especially compared to white women, biologically I'm approaching the peak of my sexuality. But I'm married to a worthless Chinese husband who can't fulfill me and every day and night I fantasize of being sexually dominated by a real man, a White man-whenever I fantasize about sex, it's inevitably a White man, always, even in my dreams I dream of a dirty old White man just stripping me naked, beating me, tying me up, whipping me mercilessly with his belt, and then-use me, brutally, treat me like a dirty yellow cum dump. I can't help myself and I really wish someone could help me fulfill my unfulfilled sexual desires that are burning me alive. Call me his chink cum dump, his oriental meat urinal, rape me, torture me, beat me, humiliate me. I yearn for this kind of treatment. And for a long time I had struggled with those bad evil thoughts because they were un-feminist and un-liberal, but then I thought, if I am really equal to men, I should never be ashamed to admit those feelings, because men have no problem with expressing their sexuality so why should I? And men curse, yell, scream, and society is perfectly ok with that, but should I as a woman be held to a different standard?
Wallace D. Wattles was an American author and a pioneer success writer.
His most famous work is a book called The Science of Getting Rich in which he explains how to get rich.
He personally "tested" the principles he describes in his book and they worked, as although he had lived most of his life in poverty, in his later years became rich.
Other books by Wallace include Health Through New Thought and Fasting, The Science of Being Great, The Science of Being Well, Making of the Man Who Can and a novel, Hellfire Harrison.
Little is known about Wattles' life.
He was born in the USA shortly before the civil war, and experienced much failure in his earlier years. Later in life he took to studying the various religious beliefs and philosophies of the world including those of Descartes, Spinoza, Gottfried Leibniz, Schopenhauer, Hegel, Swedenborg, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and others.
It was through his tireless study and experimentation that he discovered the truth of New Thought principles and put them into practice in his own life. He began to write books outlining these principles.
He practiced the technique of creative visualisation and as his daughter Florence relates, "He wrote almost constantly.
It was then that he formed his mental picture.
He saw himself as a successful writer, a personality of power, an advancing man, and he began to work toward the realization of this vision. He lived every page ... His life was truly the powerful life."
Wattles has been the author of numerous works as a part of the New Thought movement of the early 20th century.
