Human Sexualities is unlike any other class I have ever experienced. It has given me the insight and knowledge about our everyday lives, which now makes sense to me. I have learned about the sexual reproductive system for both men and women, the physiology behind the sexuality, gender roles and scripts, and many more topics of discussion. Therefore, it has also given me the opportunity to learn more about myself. As a child I was not a very sexual person or even very “myself” around the opposite sex.

I have to teach my children about what is right and what is wrong and the human sexuality that all of us have to learn. They must have an education and learn about these subjects at a young enough age so they truly understand what the body goes
