It has been over twenty years since the full manuscript of my book was edited for publication in 1998. I had begun writing it in the previous decade, the 1980’s... a period of flourishing women’s liberation movements against the patriarchal status quo. Books about women’s sexuality and spirituality were flooding the bookstores, and many writers were producing profound studies of the untold heroism of women throughout history. I was a pioneer in the burgeoning field of Sex therapy and education at the University of Minnesota Medical School’s “Program in Human Sexuality.” In addition, I conducted women’s self-enrichment groups and workshops in my private practice... “Woman’s Discovery Institute” ... where I also gave professional Astrology readings and classes. This rich mix of psychology, philosophy, spirituality, and a knowledge of the cyclic patterns of life shown by astrology created within me an avid interest in researching women’s unsung heroism throughout history. It brewed in me a heady fascination to stitch it all together in a circle montage that connects all women and all aspects of our multi-layered lives. I based my theory on the lunar cycle, which is eternally linked to women’s menstrual, emotional, and psychic cycles. With a friend, I created a series of workshops for women to celebrate their many-faceted selves and gain confidence to pursue their goals. Yet for various reasons my book manuscript remained in my own bookshelf, never getting published. Until now... the times again call for women to claim their autonomy and gain equality in an overly male-dominated and viciously callous world. I am blessed to find in Xlibris a publisher ready to take on the project with me. I am thrilled to finally see my “Life’s Masterwork” in print. You will find many divergent ideas in these two volumes. No single woman encompasses all that are described, but as you read and recognize these characters in yourselves and your friends, I hope it will help you gain a full appreciation of your own awesome erotic spirit and sacred sexual powers.

This accessible introduction to gender and sexuality theory offers a comprehensive overview and critique of the key contemporary literature and debates in feminism, sexuality studies and men's studies. Chris Beasley's clear and concise introduction combines a wide-ranging survey of the major theorists and key concepts in an ever-growing and often passionately debated field. The book contextualizes a wide range of feminist perspectives, including: modernist, liberal, postmodern, queer and gender difference feminism; and in the realm of sexuality studies covers modernist liberationism, social constructionism, transgender theorising and queer theory. In men's studies, Chris Beasley examines areas of debate ranging from gender and masculinity to questions of race, ethnicity, imperialism and gay masculinities. Interconnections between the subfields are highlighted, and Beasley considers the implications of body theory for all three. Key theorists covered include: Altman · Brod · Butler · Califia · Carbado · Connell · Dowsett · Grosz · Halberstam · Hook · Jackson · Jagose · Nussbaum · Rich · Seidman · Spivak · Stoltenberg · Weeks · Whittle · Wolf · Wollstonecraft The only book of its kind to draw together all the important strands of gender analysis, Gender and Sexuality is a timely and impressive overview that is invaluable to students and academics taking courses on gender and feminist theory, sexuality and masculinity.

I have heard many arguments, questions and comments in reference to homosexuality, and there is now a burden on my heart to express plainly how offensive this is in the sight of God. I will try to merge all these arguments, questions and comments together and balance them by the Word of God. I pray you read this with an open heart and mind. Well, I am going to point out a few things that may come as a shock to you. You must approach this subject with an open mind, and form your own conclusions, since mind control is about telling people what to do and how to think, and I am certainly not trying to control you or your life. There are some aspects of reality that people nowadays are not taught, due to an overwhelming feeling of fear created by those very aspects of reality. There are mass movements of gays and lesbians going on around the world, even in largely homophobic enclaves such as in many African societies. All of these are not an accident folks; it is a careful orchestration by the one who seeks Man's destruction. I certainly see a prophetic significance in the recent homosexual upsurge. The modern homosexual upsweep is one phase of a declining trend in morals. When the disciples asked our Lord, "What shall be the sign of Thy coming, and of the consummation of the age?" He told them that "iniquity shall abound" (Matthew 24:3, 12). There is today permissiveness and promiscuity in sexual behavior unprecedented in the history of America and of the world. There is little restraint upon the widespread of materials containing pictures and writings depicting erotic behavior intended to cause sexual excitement. This would be included in our Lord's prophecy about abounding iniquity.

Encyclopedia of Sex for Teenagers

While sex has been a source of greatest joy, yet perhaps the greatest of all sorrow and suffering have also come out of it.This book tells us how to use sexual impulse for creative work. Nothing is more important than sex education.

Sex is perhaps the greatest force in the universe. It is the creative instinct, upon which is based the furthering of the race. Its power can be used for the highest good or it can be manifested as a base and ignoble vice. Civilization with all its great inventions and labor saving devices, has brought about an intensification of the love impulse. It has also brought about a condition where the sexual life can become more artistic or in other words, less barbaric than in the primal form where it merely was the manifestation of an appetite not nearby so important as slaughtering an animal for food. While sex has been a source of greatest joy, yet perhaps the greatest of all sorrow and suffering have also come out of it.This book tells us how to use sexual impulse for creative work. Nothing is more important than sex education. It has been found that men and women are well informed on matters of state and country, are painfully ignorant on the subject of sex. As we are confronted by the problem of the control of this great life force, we should at last give ourselves that knowledge that will help us solve our difficulties in connection with it. We can be made or marred by it. We can never over-rate the value of this education, founded in truth and broad as humanity itself.

Made Up exposes the multibillion-dollar beauty industry that promotes unrealistic beauty standards through a market basket of advertising tricks, techniques, and technologies. Cosmetics magnate Charles Revson, a founder of Revlon, was quoted as saying, "In the factory, we make cosmetics. In the store, we sell hope." This pioneering entrepreneur, who built an empire on the foundation of nail polish, captured the unvarnished truth about the beauty business in a single metaphor: hope in a jar. Made Up: How the Beauty Industry Manipulates Consumers, Preys on Women’s Insecurities, and Promotes Unattainable Beauty Standards is a thorough examination of innovative, and often controversial, advertising practices used by beauty companies to persuade consumers, mainly women, to buy discretionary goods like cosmetics and scents. These approaches are clearly working: the average American woman will spend around $300,000 on facial products alone during her lifetime. This revealing book traces the evolution of the global beauty industry, discovers what makes beauty consumers tick, explores the persistence and pervasiveness of the feminine beauty ideal, and investigates the myth-making power of beauty advertising. It also examines stereotypical portrayals of women in beauty ads, looks at celebrity beauty endorsements, and dissects the “looks industry.” Made Upuncovers the reality behind an Elysian world of fantasy and romance created by beauty brands that won’t tell women the truth about beauty.
