  • Insight On Necrophilia The Author Barbara Gowdy
    673 words
    Insight on Necrophilia (1999) The author Barbara Gowdy has succeeded in 'We so Seldom Look on Love'; to arouse our curiosity through a romanticized depiction of what most would consider a sin, necrophilia. It is most probable that society in the nineteen fifties influenced the style and choice of characters to explore such delicate and obscure behavior. Barbara Gowdy proved herself to be very clever by opening a passage through the soul of a young woman, in order to humanize the inexplicable lus...

Steinbeck uses the character Elisa Allen to portray the women's struggle for equality. She is a woman deprived of social, personal and ...
  • Comprehensive Sex Education Program
    782 words
    Abstinence is the only sure way to keep people totally safe from early pregnancies, population overgrowth, and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. But is it the best way? It is my belief that the "abstinence-only" approach is not the best way to deal with these issues. I think the large majority of these problems stem from a young population ignorant about the negative effects that can come from their sexual activity. Therefore, I feel that a comprehensive sex-education for all teenager...
  • Role Of Attraction In Cross Sex Friendship
    2,105 words

In the first article, 'I like you... as a friend': The role of attraction in cross-sex friendship" Re...
