Human sexual behavior, sexual practice or sexual intimacy is the way that humans experience and expression their sexuality. Humans engage in various sexual acts, ranging from spontaneous activities done with no sexual partner to complex activities involving many partners over a long period of time, for various reasons. Although most of these sexual acts are usually oriented to reproduction, they also have a lot of other purposes. Some of these purposes include pleasure, arousal, and attachment.
Sexuality is a term that is sometimes used in the place of “lesbianism” or ” bisexuality”. It is often associated with a particular sexual orientation, such as homosexuality. It is different from sexual desire or lust, but shares some of the same characteristics. For example, sexuality relates to the ability to experience pleasure, while sexual intercourse refers to physical contact and/or organs involved during sex.
Many people think that there is only one definition of sexuality, which is a general sense of pleasure and satisfaction, often being associated with the ability to procreate and the role of sex in interpersonal relationships. However, sex and gender are very complex and are affected by many factors. Sexuality is not always related to gender roles. For example, some forms of lesbianism, gayness, bisexuality and even trans sexuality do not involve an identification with or support for the gender identity of the person involved. Similarly, some gender identities are not influenced by biological sex.
Sex and gender refer to broad aspects of human sexuality, which involve biological, psychological, social and environmental factors. The distinction between sex and gender is often a highly politically correct one, but the reality is that sex refers to the characteristics that are given by and shaped by gender, and gender refers to the socially constructed characteristics that are given by both biological gender and social gender. Sex is the qualities that are given by and shaped by a biological sex. Gender is the characteristics that are socially constructed by both biological sex and social gender.
People who identify as male, female, intersexed, pansexual or even a Transsexual are people whose bodies present characteristics of both male and female that are determined at birth through natal sex. This means that they have the ability to develop and interact as male or female, but feel that they are neither. Most often their external appearance and behavior reflects this perception. Some intersexed people have a desire to transition between these two gender roles, and are undergoing sexual treatment to achieve this. In other cases, however, people have no desire to socially transition but prefer to have a distinctly female or male sexual identity. People who live in traditionally gendered environments, such as cisgendered (determined at birth) households or organizations may also find it difficult to move out of these social gender roles.
People who identify as neither male nor female, but experience strong feelings of gender identity do not feel like they fit into any of the two major gender categories. They feel that their bodies are biologically male or female, and that this has implications for how they are treated and with whom they live. A person who feels that they are neither male nor female does not need to undergo medical intervention to become comfortable with their bodies. Rather they can learn to embrace the sense of gender identity that encompasses both genders, and live as a “third gender” (or intersex) in their own way. To know your gender doesn’t mean you have to be comfortable living according to the rules of society-rather knowing your gender simply allows you to live a free and fulfilled life.
