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.

How we know that the vagina is not a sex organ

If women had orgasms from inserting objects (such as an erect penis) into the vagina they would seek this kind of stimulation themselves. Research clearly identified the clitoris as the focus for female masturbation. The hymen is a small flap of skin that covers the entrance to the vagina (in most women). When the hymen…

Young men tend to focus on enjoying their arousal

Some young men can become erect many times through the day. At puberty a boy’s mind naturally focuses on his penis and its responsiveness. Boys enjoy the visual stimulus of nude pin-ups from adolescence onwards. Girls are not similarly aroused and men are expected to keep their genitals out of view to avoid giving offense.…

The internal anatomy involved in reproduction

Every foetus starts out with the building blocks for both male and female reproductive organs. All embryos (regardless of sex) have Wolffian ducts and Müllerian ducts. These two sets of embryonic ducts determine our ultimate internal reproductive anatomy and consequently our sex. Development of our internal reproductive anatomy depends on hormones produced by the testes…

The precedent from Nature is clear. The male is motivated to mate so he has to persuade the female to accept intercourse. Male mammals fight for breeding rights. The female has little choice in the matter. A man needs to be aroused by his lover because he expects to orgasm from sex. A woman must…

At puberty boys develop a reliable arousal cycle

This gender difference is apparent before the onset of adolescence and is not attributable solely to hormones. Once a boy becomes sexually responsive he also develops a degree of emotional insensitivity. Male ego, arrogance or assertiveness is vital…

Men are aroused in anticipation of penetration partly because of their sex drive but also because of the significant pleasure of penetrating a lover with an erect penis. Men can easily orgasm by penetrating the mouth, vagina or anus. For a man, the sight of his erect penis penetrating an orifice is perhaps the greatest…

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 have the way…
