Learn About Sexuality

Emotional aspects of sexuality

Sexuality is about engaging in intercourse (the mating act); non-sexual intimacy & how we feel loved in our relationships; and about our willingness to consent to sexual activity with others.

Penetration is what makes sex erotic and taboo

Sex education should present in as unbiased a way as possible the different moral and social issues that are raised by different behaviours. Sex education should avoid judgemental opinions such as ‘wrong’ or ‘abnormal’. Sex education is about putting behaviours in context. Teenagers need to understand that when their sexual choices involve interacting with other…

Women are often unsure about orgasm during sex
