Abstract

[Extract] All humans are sexual beings. Regardless of gender, age, race, socioeconomic status, religious beliefs, physical and mental health, or other demographic factors, we express our sexuality in a variety of ways throughout our lives.

Human sexuality is difficult to define. Sexuality is an individually expressed and highly personal phenomenon whose meaning evolves from life experiences. Physiological, psychosocial and cultural factors influence a person's sexuality and lead to the wide range of attitudes and behaviours seen in humans. There are no normal, universal sexual behaviours. Satisfying or 'normal' sexual expression can generally be described as whatever behaviours give pleasure and satisfaction to those adults involved, without threat of coercion or injury to self or others. What constitutes 'normal' sexual expression, however, varies between cultures and religions.
