    Sexuality Vs Sexuality

    • 4 Pages

    The desire for sex and sexuality began before we can even document it. Sexuality is a natural part of the human nature. Humans as individuals crave infection and desire connections with others even beyond sex. The power of infection can be contagious. For some this contagiousness can be too much to control. The desire and need for intimacy and sex becomes the sole control of their lives. Taking over their personal life and destroying relationships in its path. This tornado of desire is often diagnosed as “Hyper sexuality” or “Sex Addiction”. This is often described as a mental disorder, even though it is not recognized by the DSM5 as a mental disorder. Individuals who have diagnosed with hyper sexuality have strong sexual urges that are not easy to control and thus participate in unusually high amounts of sexual activity. This often results in traumatic stressful situations such as divorce or loss of relationships due to this uncontrolled urge. Is it possible for someone to be addicted to sex? I believe so, I think that the “feel good” factors of sex or sexual activity can be addicting. That could take over one’s life. The constant want of these feel good factors could result in someone ruining their…

    Sexuality and Homophobia “Come on, let’s go play house!” I heard this statement so many times as a child. The only thing is, I grew up in a neighbor that was mainly girls at the time, so when we would play “house”, pretending to have our own family consisting of a mother, father (although there usually wasn’t a male around), and a child; it got really awkward. Most of us grew out of it and promised to never speak of that phase again. However, some of us grew up and became extremely cautious…

    between the Maestà and Lysistrata involves how sexuality is viewed by society. In the Greek religion of Lysistrata sexuality is always welcomed, even to the point of it being part of their rituals.

    Non-Patriarchal Sexuality

    • 829 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Though non-patriarchal sexuality had been widely disregarded, humans exist sexually by nature. Regardless of gender, sexuality is deeply entrenched into current culture and biologically pre-programmed into our disposition. This is often times not something that it explicitly taught, but rather something inferred in contrast to previous teachings. Growing up, my mother taught me her version of propriety with homage to sexually gendered practices, and we often disagreed. The execution of sexually…

    Despite the fact that vibrator sales are less discrete and can be easily seen on store shelves; there still appears to be a stigma attached to female sexuality that might make it more difficult to openly discuss these topics. The stigma comes from a variety of sources that include ideas of female purity, heteronormativity, and the medicalization of sexuality. Though we don’t see the diagnosis of hysteria anymore I definitely believe that this type of medicalization left a lasting impression on…

    • 3 Pages

    Quotation: “Despite the hegemonic discourse that sexuality is irrelevant to children, schooling cultures and official educational documents consistently construct children as heteronormative subjects with heterosexual futures, even when sexual knowledge is absent in the curricula”. (Robinson & Davies, 208, p. 222) One of the main key points which Robinson and Davies express are issues relating around sexuality as not being an essential part of a child’s identity.
