Culture, Society And Sexuality: A Reader

Routledge
Free sample

Since the beginnings of time, people have been interested in sex - the form it takes, the pleasure it can give, the circumstances in which it occurs, and what it means - both for the individuals concerned and to society more generally. Often seen as a synonym for love, sometimes as an expression of power, and infrequently as a means of exploitation and abuse, sex is a complex and multi-faceted aspect of human behaviour that has been written about by numerous writers and theorists worldwide. This book offers an introduction to the central debates in sexuality research. Among the issues examined are the social and cultural dimensions of sex, human sexuality and sex research. It will be of use to students of sociology, cultural studies, and health and behavioural studies.

The sun is out. Your little boy is smiling. The next time you look… he’s gone.

 

Lana Cross would do anything to protect her perfect family but on a trip to an adventure park, they slip out of her sight. When she finds her husband, he’s out cold on the forest floor. Then the truth sinks in: Cooper, her four-year-old son, is missing.

 

No one stopped the man carrying the sleeping boy. The park cameras don’t show where he went. Then Lana receives an anonymous message, telling her to visit a local school with a horrifying history...

 

This is no random attack. Whoever took Cooper is playing a twisted game, and if Lana wants to find him, she must participate.

 

How could there be a link between the school and her missing son? And can Lana find her little boy before it’s too late?

 

A heart-in-mouth thriller that will keep you reading long into the night. Fans of James Patterson, Karin Slaughter, and Tess Gerritsen will be absolutely hooked.

What everyone’s saying about Hide and Seek:

‘Ohhh I totally loved this book. Fast-paced, gripping and it sucked me in from the very first page. This book was a real page turner.’ Goodreads, 5 stars

‘Wow this book was good, it was full of tension and was charged with emotion. A solid 5 stars!’ Bonnie’s Book Talk

‘From the very outset of this book I was hooked… I was almost holding my breath, poised on the edge of my seat, desperate to see what would happen. I loved it.’ Jen Med’s Books Reviews, 5 stars

‘If I could I would seriously give this book far more than five stars.’ Nicki’s Life of Crime

‘Fast-paced thriller that was difficult to put down.’ Goodreads, 5 stars

‘This is a terrifically delicious thriller... sort of like riding the world's highest roller coaster ride. Up and up and up... and then the fast decline to the bottom before starting again. All the while your heart is in your throat, the fear is palpable. If you like movies that scare you, books that leave you gasping, you really must read Hide and Seek.’ Strong Book Reviews

‘Sometimes I read "fast paced" or "dark suspense" and I think “Nah it really wasn't”. But this book was. I highly recommend this.’ Goodreads, 5 stars

‘I loved this book. It keeps you guessing all the way never knowing what might happen next.’ Goodreads 5 stars

‘Great suspenseful book that is fast paced and well written... RECOMMEND!’ Goodreads

‘A pacey crime thriller. As the novel builds to its conclusion there are several twists in the tale. In fact, it turns into a real psychological thriller! I will certainly be looking out for future books by Richard Parker on the strength of this book.’ Goodreads

‘A rollercoaster of a ride from the very first sentence. Beyond every parent’s worst nightmare, this story delivers a terrifying plot that keeps you guessing. The sort of read you won't want to put down until you have finished it.’ Goodreads, 5 stars

‘I found myself hooked right from the very first page. Hide And Seek starts with a bang and stays that way until the very end.’ It’s All About Books,  5 stars

‘OMG! Richard Parker certainly knows how to grab the reader’s attention, with a “heart thumping” opening chapter I found myself well and truly hooked. Imagine one minute your child's having the time of their life and the next minute they’re gone, taken by a stranger, it's got to be every parent’s biggest nightmare, the author expertly builds on this fear making Hide And Seek a highly unnerving read...’ The Book Review Café

MICHAEL MATTHEWS' #1 BESTSELLING NATURAL BODYBUILDING BOOK WITH OVER 400,000 COPIES SOLD.

If you want to build muscle, lose fat, and look great as quickly as possible without steroids, good genetics, or wasting ridiculous amounts of time in the gym and money on supplements ... regardless of your age ... then you want to read this book.

Building muscle and burning fat isn't as complicated as the fitness industry wants you to believe. This book is the shortcut.

You don't need to: spend hundreds of dollars per month on the worthless supplements that steroid-fueled bodybuilders “swear by.”

You don't need to: constantly change up your weightlifting exercises to build muscle mass. Muscle building is much simpler than that.

You don't need to: spend a couple of hours every day doing tons of weight training sets, supersets, drop sets, etc. In fact, this is a great way to get nowhere.

You don't need to: grind out hours of boring cardio to shed ugly belly fat and get a six-pack. You don’t HAVE to do any cardio, actually.

You don't need to: obsess over "clean eating" and avoid "unhealthy" foods to get ripped. Flexible dieting is the real “secret” of effective bodybuilding nutrition.

Those are just a few of the harmful lies and myths that keep guys from ever achieving the lean, muscular, strong, and healthy bodies they truly desire.

And in this book you re going to learn something most guys will never know ...

The exact methods of diet and training that make putting on 10 to 15 pounds of quality lean mass a breeze...and it only takes a few months.

Here are just a few of the things you're going to discover in this book:

The 7 biggest muscle building myths and mistakes that keep guys small, weak, and frustrated.

How to build muscle, lose fat, and get healthy eating foods you love and never feeling starved, deprived, or like you're "on a diet."

An all-in-one training system that delivers MAXIMUM results for your efforts, helping you build a big, full chest, a wide, tapered back, thick, powerful legs, and bulging arms...spending no more than 3 to 6 hours in the gym every week...doing workouts that energize you, not wipe you out.

A no-BS guide to supplements that will teach you what works and what doesn't, and save you hundreds if not THOUSANDS of dollars each year.

How to master the "inner game of fitness" and develop the self-discipline and willpower it takes to build the body of your dreams (and actually enjoy the process!).

The 3 simple laws of muscle growth that, when applied, literally force your body to grow bigger and stronger.

How to get shredded while still indulging in the "cheat foods" that you love every week like pasta, pizza, and ice cream.

And a whole lot more!

Imagine...just 12 weeks from now...being constantly complimented on how great you look and asked how the heck you’re doing it...

Imagine enjoying the added benefits of high energy levels, no aches and pains, better spirits, and knowing that you're getting healthier every day...

The bottom line is you CAN achieve that "Hollywood hunk" body without having your life revolve around it.
