Biological aspects of sexuality

Sexuality is about reproduction (including raising children to maturity), our sex and gender; responsiveness, orientation and personality; and about appreciating the sexual anatomy & development of both genders.

The influence of religious beliefs on sexuality

Each culture has its own set of values. Some people consider these beliefs to be more important than others. While we are children, our parents make choices for us in the belief that they are for our benefit. Once we are adult, we can decide on our own values. It is likely that the way…

Asking young women to define female sexuality

Scientists have suggested various anatomy that might be involved in female orgasm. No research was necessary to establish the male sex organ. Men know (and their lovers know) what anatomy is involved in male orgasm. Scientists proposed theories about female sexual anatomy because women themselves (and their lovers) did not know. Despite the variety of…

The female erectile sex organ (or phallus)

In the absence of testosterone, the genital tubercle forms the female phallus, called the clitoris. The clitoris is made up of the glans, the shaft and the internal organ. Women do not have the anatomy (the clitoris does not respond with a lover) or the mental response to erotic stimuli that makes male arousal so…

A man’s sex organ (penis) is separate from his internal reproductive anatomy (testes and glands). The penis is made up of the glans, the shaft and the internal organ. The penis has three main functions. Firstly men use their penis to urinate (but only when flaccid). The urethra is a tube that runs down the…

Responsiveness varies between individuals

Orgasm is a unique response of the body that occurs in the same way for everyone. Responsiveness works like a capacitor. Tension builds in the nervous system (like electrical potential) and is then released. Women experience considerably less sexual tension. Thus male orgasm is much stronger and may explain, in part, men’s greater sexual motivation.…
