This book presents research that identifies the most salient issues related to communication about sex in relationships and explores these issues in a format that will improve the understanding and practice of sexual communication.

What is missing in sex education? An understanding of relationship issues, an understanding of how to communicate with partners, and an understanding of gender differences that affect communication between the sexes. Sex Talk: The Role of Communication in Intimate Relationships was written to inform, influence, and expand individuals' understanding of sexual communication and the dynamics of sexual relationships. It explains why sex talk is important and details how to successfully talk about sex in various types of relationships and stages of relationship development.

The book presents research about sex talk in short- and long-term relationships and in marriage. It offers information bearing on casual sexual relationships, friends-with-benefits, and new sexual relationships, as well as on how to discuss sex with adolescents and with health care providers. Each chapter opens with a vignette that explores a communication problem related to sex talk and ends with practical advice on how to improve or start conversations about sex.
