Welcome

Learn About Sexuality provides information about sexuality:

  • Biological: reproduction, sex and gender; responsiveness, orientation and personality; and sexual anatomy & development of both sexes.
  • Emotional: engaging in intercourse; non-sexual intimacy; and our willingness to consent to sexual activity with others.
  • Intellectual: our motivation to explore sexual fantasies; masturbation alone; and how we can achieve orgasm alone and with a lover.
  • Social: interacting with others in return for payment or other non-relationship rewards; committed relationships; and sexual pleasuring.
