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.

Sexual responsiveness & orientation

Sexuality is about responsiveness and orientation, which are both determined before we are born. Our responsiveness is innate, sporadic and beyond our conscious control. Our orientation is defined by who we are attracted to: for example, the same sex or the opposite sex. Sexual responsiveness is the capacity to respond to eroticism to the point…

Human reproduction is more than intercourse

Sexuality is about reproduction. Human reproduction involves much more than just the act of intercourse. A woman has to carry the baby in her body until it is mature enough to be born.
