“Will the real lesbians please stand up?”

A new publication for one of our own faculty, Lisa M. Diamond Ph. D. has hit the shelves here at the Marriott Library.

Sexual fluidity: understanding women’s love and desirepublished by Harvard University Press, 2008 can be picked up in the, HQ’s on Level 2.
With chapters titled Will the real lesbians please stand up? -- Gender differences in same-sex sexuality -- Sexual fluidity in action -- Nonexclusive attractions and behaviors -- Change in sexual attractions -- Attractions to "the person, not the gender" -- How does fluidity work? -- Implications of female sexual fluidity. Diamond’s book throws a curveball at black and white concepts of sexual identity and sexuality. The questions remains, can ten years of research also prove to be a good read?
