Some questions leave parents at a loss for words. Here are the answers.
Where do babies come from? This is a question Mum or Dad can be sure they’ll have to face at some point. And just as predictably it will leave them stammering and stuttering, as they search for the right words. But often it is not just embarrassment that makes parents um and ah, but lack of the relevant information. What’s more, the same thing can happen to teachers, when pupils who have gleaned some insight on sex from encyclopaedias or, more likely, the internet, and encouraged by teen magazines, ask how to put on a condom properly.
In the dtv-Atlas Sexuality, readers will find all the essential facts backed up by illustrative material. In pictures, diagrams, drawings, charts, and texts this atlas sets out all the crucial information on pregnancy and birth, sexual practices and sexually transmitted diseases, sexual problems and infertility – and everything else you always wanted to know about sex, but were afraid to ask.
The dtv-Atlas series started in 1964 with its bestselling dtv-Atlas World History. It has been widely acclaimed for its unique way of highlighting the topics of each volume in separate units, combining vivid graphics on the left-hand pages with concisely written explanations on the right.
The subject areas covered by the dtv-Atlas series range from history to natural sciences, from architecture to music, from philosophy to health. dtv-Atlases are designed to be reference books useful for both experts and curious readers. The series is being regularly extended, and each Atlas is revised and updated upon republication. A list of all dtv-Atlases, including the number of editions and copies sold, is available.
