Sexuality

Sexuality is a central aspect of being human throughout life and encompasses sex, gender identities and roles, sexual orientation, eroticism, pleasure, intimacy and reproduction. Sexuality is experienced and expressed in thoughts, fantasies, desires, beliefs, attitudes, values, behaviors, practices, roles and relationships. While sexuality can include all of these dimensions, not all of them are always experienced or expressed. Sexuality is influenced by the interaction of biological, psychological, social, economic, political, cultural, ethical, legal, historical, religious and spiritual factors.

In general it could be said that human sexuality is about the way people experience and express themselves as sexual beings.

Society tends to pigeon hole individuals as either straight or gay at opposite ends of the spectrum, however as many of us already know there can be a lot of grey area in between these two extremes.

Sexuality can in fact be fluid and change over time, many people find themselves struggling with this change and it can bring with it a number of confusing emotions: fear, anxiety, self doubt, depression and grief to name a few!
