Human Sexuality

Like anything else we have to learn in life, human sexuality is no exception; it is all about educating ourselves. Because human sexuality has biological, physical, and emotional aspects that vary from male to female anatomy; it is imperative for us to understand that having at least a basic knowledge of sex health is crucial. This knowledge will make us aware of our partner’s needs as well as our own needs to facilitate having a healthy sex life and reach an explosion of exquisite orgasms.

Human sexuality is how people experience the erotic and express themselves as sexual beings. Frequently driven by the desire for sexual pleasure, human sexuality has biological, physical, and emotional aspects. Biologically, it refers to the reproductive mechanism as well as the basic biological drive that exists in all species and can encompass sexual intercourse and sexual contact in all its forms. Emotional aspects deal with the intense emotions relating to sexual acts and associated social bonds. Physical issues around sexuality range from purely medical considerations to concerns about the physiological, psychological and/or sociological aspects of sexual behavior.

“Sexual attraction and sexual arousal bring to bear two very important hormones, dopamine and oxytocin, both of which create bliss and bonding. Even if the lovemaking session started out with only a modest amount of interest, once arousal starts, these hormones create attachment, pleasure, and intimacy. So while everyday sex isn’t necessary, frequent sex is a great bonus and even an essential part of most couple’s commitment and happiness with one another.”

Human sexuality plays a major role in everyone’s life. Regardless, whether we are young or old, man or woman, American or Japanese, it is an integral part of what we do and who we are. Next to sleeping and eating, it seems that sex is one of the most important drives we have to deal with as humans. Furthermore, sexuality is an integral part of our personalities whether we are aware of it or not.

    We’d add one piece of advice to this: in aoddtiin to being up front about your needs, ask your partner about his/hers, and be sure to check in regarding what’s going on with her/him outside of the bedroom.In our experience, it’s not unusual for one of us to have stresses build up about work or kids or outstanding chores or whatever, and we’re not always aware of the effect it’s having on our libidos or on our connection with our partners. Stopping for a little while just to give your partner a chance to talk about and vent their frustrations and worries can help work through that stress. And with that pressure released, libidos can come roaring back.We can also vouch for scheduling sex. We have two small kids, and scheduling makes sure sex happens often for us both to feel satisfied and connected. It doesn’t mean it can’t happen at other times, though; it just means we take the time to plan and make the time.One of the important things I had to learn, though, was to “accept less than your ideal”. Sometimes, when our scheduled date comes around, she’s not as into it as I am at first. That used to be a problem for me, because I want her to enjoy it as much as I do. One I learned to set that aside, I found that by having sex anyway, she’d usually wind up very aroused. And even when she didn’t get as turned on as I’d hoped, she was still enjoying giving me pleasure. I just had to get my ego out of the way and accept the gift she wanted to give me.
