What Is Human Sexuality?: In broad terms, human sexuality (sometimes called human sexuality psychology) covers a vast spectrum in the way we experience, feel and express ourselves sexually. It can often prove difficult to define precisely for each of us. Our sexuality includes sexual orientation (who you are sexually attracted to) as well as your sexual identity, sexual health, activity and practice (what kinds of sex you have with whom, and why).
It can also encompass other problems such as gender identity issues, sex and intimacy issues, through to pregnancy preparation and dealing with a pregnancy loss. How you deal with the ongoing feelings and issues that these types of human sexuality leave you with can sometimes be a difficult topic for people to process and address.
Sex can be for pleasure, reproduction, work, comfort, connection, and many other reasons. You can have sex alone, in pairs or groups, with the same partner/s for many years, with multiple different people, or any combination of the above.
You might feel drawn to men or to women, maybe to both, or to neither. Ultimately it’s all about what feels right for you and how you cope with the feelings that can manifest if you feel uncomfortable with them. There are common terms to describe different types of sexual orientation such as LGBTQIA+, but don’t feel pressured into feeling that you have to adopt a label to describe yourself.
It’s not unusual that it could take a while to determine the sexuality that fits you best and there is a chance that your sexuality can change over time as well, so it can be very confusing for some people.
