Sex and Gender


Sex and Gender

Human sexual behavior, human sexuality or simply human sexuality is the way in which people experience and express their sexual intimacy. People engage in various sexual acts, ranging from sexual acts performed by themselves to sexual encounters with another individual for a number of reasons, for a range of reasons. Some of these reasons may be due to peer pressure, while others may be out of personal interest. Some people have engaged in sexual acts for reasons that are not even linked to any particular reason. Whatever the reason, sexual intimacy is an integral part of human sexuality.

Sexuality is seen as a primary, even inherent, part of human development from the time of our birth up to the time when death occurs. In most cases, the development of sexuality is correlated with the development of identity and social roles. Some of the important developments that sexuality experiences during the developmental stages of a child include becoming aware of one’s gender identity, determining one’s own sexual identity and choosing one’s gender role (which is usually associated with the physical sex). It is in understanding one’s gender identity and developing a sense of personal sexuality, that sexuality is considered a valuable part of human development.

As far as how people like to indulge in sexual intercourse is concerned, there is no fixed pattern. People like to engage in sexual intercourse for different reasons, some of them based on physical attraction and some based on emotional attractions. Some people like to engage in sexual intercourse for the sake of procreation, while other people like to indulge in such act for the sake of pleasure. While there is no general consensus on what ‘srsly’ means, almost all of the people would agree on the following statement: sex is an essential part of any relationship. Therefore, people like to indulge in sexual intercourse as they derive pleasure from being in a physical relationship.

Many women, especially in the urban societies, have resorted to buying vibrators and other sex toys to enhance their sex appeal and create a better intimate life. However, the use of vibrators and other sex toys to enhance one’s sex appeal cannot take the place of giving birth to a child. Although a lot of people may not be comfortable with the concept of anal sex, most of the people would still prefer vaginal sex over anal sex. However, it is important to note that anal sex does not necessarily lead to pregnancy; however, giving birth to a child through anal sex may increase the chances of getting pregnant in some women.

According to recent research, the average age at which a girl attains puberty is 13.5 years whereas the age at which a boy attains puberty is 16.5 years. Most of the studies conducted on the differences between the two genders have revealed that the physiological changes that take place during the passage of two years are basically similar between the two genders. However, the psychological development and maturity that take place during these years differ between the two genders. Some of the studies have revealed that there is a lot of difference between the physiological and psychological development and the two genders, while many others have also revealed that there is no significant difference between the two genders in terms of emotional intelligence, verbal and interpersonal skills and other such personality traits. It is believed that these differences in psychological and physiological traits are primarily responsible for causing sexual differentiation between the two genders.

The two primary differences between the two genders are the extent of their social construction as well as the extent of their individual sexual interests. The extent of the social construction that is involved in the development of the two genders is primarily dependent upon the cultural and ethnic contexts in which they are embedded. While most cultures accept and approve of the differences between the two genders, there are still some regions where these differences are often openly expressed. The degree to which a person expresses his or her own personal sexual interests also depends on the person’s perception of his or her own sexuality and gender identity. Lastly, the role that the gender identity plays in a person’s sexual life is influenced by the person’s social construction and the extent to which he or she believes that he or she is a member of both the sexes.
