- Alice Bag once said, “My sexuality is not an inferior trait that needs to be chaperoned by emotionalism or morality.” In other words, one’s sensuality cannot be confined to a specific perspective for it transcends societal fixations. I believe that sexuality is indefinable because it refuses to be labeled; it is individualistic and exists separately but unequivocally in all human beings. My attitude towards this is and always will be a direct consequence of how I was raised, so before I dive into the specific intrapersonal and interpersonal dealings of my sexual experiences, I will first touch upon how my parents have shaped and influenced me....   [tags: Human sexuality, Sexual intercourse]

Maslow 's Hierarchy Of Needs

- Maslow’s hierarchy of needs arranges basic human needs in the order in which people strive to fulfill them. Physiological needs, basic human needs, are the first necessity on Maslow’s hierarchy that people attempt to fulfill.
