Whats this book?

I remember reading a segment out of a sci-fi book or short story in biology class a few years ago. I could never remember the title or author. I'm hoping that one of you might know.

The book I believe was quite old. It takes place in the future. The people of this futuristic society decided to do away with emotions thinking it will benefit everyone. People are divided in to different classes of society and if I remember correctly wear a certain color clothing to be identified. All the people are genetically altered some way(I forget how) so that they are happy with there place in society.

One character however started to develop feelings for a girl and gets upset when some guy says that he would like to "have" her meaning sex. The society sees sex as being natural and they pretty much have it as they please. I also remember that women were selected to bear children had to wear a "pregnancy belt" or something along that line.

I know this is a very choppy explanation but I am having no luck trying to find it on my own and I have been googling and searching in other ways. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. It is a full-length novel.

Great book. If you like that one, you should check out 1984 by George Orwell.
