Special Focus:
America's Sexual Revolution

It's been three decades since the Sexual Revolution was launched. Has it produced a sexually enlightened America? Although tragic celebrity sex scandals regularly grab our attention, we seldom consider the possible effects of our own sexual practices. Did not the liberation of attitudes toward premarital sex, pornography and homosexuality promise to give us a better understanding of ourselves as sexual beings? The staggering rates of divorce, abortion, STD's and illegitimacy might suggest we take a second look at our new paradise. We have put together a special focus on this topic.
