    Simon LeVay

    Dr. Simon LeVay is a British-American neuroscientist born in Oxford, England, on August 28, 1943. He earned his bachelor's degree in natural sciences from the University of Cambridge in 1966 and obtained a Ph.D. in Neuroanatomy from the University of Göttingen in Germany. He completed his postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School in 1974.

    LeVay held positions in neurobiology at the Harvard Medical School. Following this, he worked at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies while holding an Associate Professorship in Biology at the University of California, San Diego. Much of his early work focused on the visual cortex in animals.

    During his time at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, LeVay conducted a study that compared the size of the "Interstitial Nucleus of the Anterior Hypothalamus" (INAH3) in a group of gay men to a group of straight men and women. This was the first scientific study demonstrating brain differences based on sexual orientation. The study results received widespread attention and were featured in various media outlets such as PBS, Newsweek, Nightline, Donahue, and The Oprah Winfrey Show.

    LeVay has spoken extensively on the topic of human sexuality at various venues and has authored several books. In 2003, he became a lecturer in Human Sexuality Studies at Stanford University.

    Discovering Human Sexuality, 5th Edition, (PDF) has established itself as a popular and extensively praised text that respects diversity both in the sexual world and among the students who read it. The backgrounds of the authors — in biology, teaching, sociology, and writing — have made possible a text that is multidisciplinary, authoritative, sex-positive, and a pleasure to read. The scope of Discovering Human Sexuality ranges from homosexuality in ancient Greece to the recent Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal, while including a magnificently diverse array of topics. Questions considered include What’s “splitting the bamboo”? Can premature ejaculation be treated? If a man has undetectable levels of HIV: How does the menstrual cycle work? can he have sex without condoms? Is there a gay gene? What’s wrong with polygamy? Why do some transgender youth “desist”? Is emergency contraception abortion? Which sex offenders will repeat their crimes? How do recent changes in Title IX regulations affect the rights of college students? This ebook gives factual answers to important questions and offers material for informed debate for issues without a single solution.
