When learning about the erotic plasticity I for one agree with the term. Society loves to put labels on a lot of things. Whether it is deviant or not, they will define the act as either a negative or positive social stigma. When an act is considered negative, it will now be viewed as deviant. In the life course men and women will go through certain developments. As they get older the individual will be attracted to another person. The issues is it may be of the same sex, and through society’s standard it is wrong. Sexual identity is different for genders, and there are more restriction applied to certain sexes. My theoretical response for erotic plasticity will be Symbolic Interaction. I will go into detail on how the self is related to erotic plasticity.
In the second chapter, The A, B, C, and Ds of Sex (and Asex), Brock University Associate Professor and Asexuality author, Bogaert, examines “some of the fundamental psychological processes of asexuality as they relate to both sexual and asexual people.” Throughout this section, Bogaert explains the “A (attraction and arousal), B (behavior), C (cognition), and Ds (desire)” by going through each letter and explaining what it stands for. He tries to get the younger readers to understand the definitions of asexuality by aiming focus on the constituents of sexuality first. The similarities between sexuality and asexuality are outlined throughout this reading. Surprisingly enough, Bogaert explains the differences and the relationship between romantic and sexual bonds and how they appear in asexual people as well.
The beginning of this short research essay began with the author explaining what the essay will be about. This essay primarily focuses on the differences and similarities of sexuality between men, women, gays, and lesbians. It also focuses on time, because throughout time, human sexuality has changed. New scientific evidence has also helped give new insight to the human mind and their most basic needs.
The term sexuality has been misunderstood in both socio-cultural and political spheres of society – as the prejudiced right wing construes it to defame individuals who identify as other than heterosexual. However, Cranny- Francis remedies this oversight by defining the term as “… a set of social processes which produce and organize the structure and expression of desire (Cranny Francis,2003, 190-2).” Thus sexuality stems from one’s innate human drive and the act of sex is the physical “expression of desire(Cranny Francis,2003,190-2).” Thus t...
The reason I am writing this paper is to share the information I attained about human sexuality by learning about sexuality in a college setting and by exploring my sexuality through personal experiences. I do not consider myself to have experienced much exposure to sexual behavior but I do have a cultural bias to what I consider a heavy amount of exposure because the North American culture is considered more promiscuous and sexually active than other cultures.
...dual discovering their own sexuality, the degree of self-expression versus self-detention would vary greatly. As it seems, the general trend in the perception of sexuality becomes more accepting, those who do not believe in sexuality beyond procreation continue to exert influence, and to some degree, act as the superego, to the ever growing trend.
When typed into one of the world’s largest Internet search engines, “sexuality” comes up with many results. However, no true definition of the word ‘sexuality’ is returned. Results include definitions for human sexuality, sex, and gender. So therefore, one can believe that they are all somewhat synonymous to each other, and can mean many things to many people. Overall, the collective definition of sexuality is “the awareness of gender differences, and the capacity to have erotic experiences and responses. Human sexuality can also refer to the way someone is sexually attracted to another person.” Sexuality affects how migrants adapt to the new coun...
