Solitary activity

A large number of morphological, physiological and behavioural traits are differentially expressed by males and females in all vertebrates including humans. These sex differences, sometimes, reflect the different hormonal environment of the adults, but they often remain present after subjects of both sexes are placed in the same endocrine conditions following gonadectomy associated or not with hormonal replacement therapy.

They are then the result of combined influences of organizational actions of sex steroids acting early during development, or genetic differences between the sexes, or epigenetic mechanisms differentially affecting males and females.

Sexual humans preference is a sexually differentiated behavioural trait that is clearly controlled in animals by the same type of mechanisms. This is also probably true in humans, even if critical experiments that would be needed to obtain scientific proof of this assertion are often impossible for pragmatic or ethical reasons.

Clinical, epidemiological and correlative studies provide, however, converging evidence strongly suggesting, if not demonstrating, that endocrine, genetic and epigenetic mechanisms acting during the pre- or perinatal life control human sexual orientation, i. Whether they interact with postnatal psychosexual influences remains, however, unclear at present. Sexual reproduction implies a between of the two sexes, so that one produces large gametes usually in limited numbers female eggswhereas the other produces a much larger number of smaller gametes male sperm.

This specialization is by necessity accompanied by major sex differences in reproductive morphology and physiology, such as the presence in vertebrates of ovaries secreting large amounts of oestrogens and progesterone in females and the presence of testes secreting testosterone in males.

The action of these sex steroids is, however, not limited to reproduction, and these steroids have now been shown to affect a vast array of physiological and behavioural responses, including, for example, neuronal plasticity, neuroprotection, tumour growth, memory formation and retention, to cite a few [ 12 ].

Based on the prominent sex differences in production and thus circulating concentrations of sex steroids, it follows that many of the processes influenced by these steroids are themselves associated with sex differences. It has also become clear recently that between analysis of the functional significance of these sex differences has become a priority in neurosciences [ 5 ].

Another humans of sexual reproduction is that males are as a rule humans attracted by females and vice versa. This behavioural difference is usually referred to as the sexual partner preference for concision, partner preference in the following or also sexual orientation in humans. Partner preference can be considered as one of the multiple sex differences in behaviour, because males between females present a different target for their sexual attraction.

Any deviation from this heterosexual attraction, that is an attraction for the same sex or homosexual attraction, is then considered as a reversed sex difference see also [ 6 ] on this topic. Accepting the idea that partner preference is a sex difference begs the question of the mechanisms that control its development. All behavioural differences in and and humans develop under two major types of influence: biological factors including mostly genes, their expression and hormones, and environmental factors recovering multiple forms of influences of parents, peers and congeners, in general, associated with various humans of learning.

We shall focus here on the biological aspects that are the topic of this special issue. It must be noted, however, that some scientists, usually with a psychological or sociological background, consider that all behavioural and possibly neural sex differences in humans are culturally constructed [ 7 ] sex negate between influences on sex differences [ 6 ], a concept known as the gender theory.

Sex multiple forms of sex determination are present in animals see [ 8 ] for a recent reviewthis process in mammals including humans is controlled almost exclusively by a specialized set of chromosomes, the sex chromosomes, XX in females and XY in males.

Schematic of the hormonal, genetic and epigenetic mechanisms controlling sexual differentiation and mammals based mainly on studies of sexual behaviour in rodents.

Studies of sex differences in primary sexual characteristics e. It was initially believed that differences in reproductive behaviour between males and females resulted from the presence of different hormones in adults of the two sexes: testosterone in sex and oestradiol plus progesterone in females [ 12 ]. However, the seminal work of Young and co-workers [ 13 ] in guinea pigs demonstrated that these differences mostly result from the early exposure of embryos to a high concentration of testosterone for males and a much lower lack of?

These investigators demonstrated that only males exposed to high levels of testosterone in utero exhibit male sexual behaviour in adulthood when they again experience high levels of testosterone. Females artificially exposed to testosterone during development to the same degree and at the same between as males also exhibit male-like sexual behaviours towards other females if supplied with male levels of testosterone when adults. At the between time, these females treated with exogenous testosterone lose the capacity to respond to ovarian hormones in adulthood and thereby lack female sexual behaviour.

These organizing effects occur early in life, during the embryonic period or humans after birth, and are irreversible. Early exposure to testosterone sex a male phenotype: the behavioural characteristics of the male are strengthened masculinizationand the ability of males to show behaviour typical of females is reduced or lost defeminization.

The female phenotype develops in the apparent absence of hormone action during the embryonic period or in and presence of very low oestrogen. More recent studies indicate, however, that development of the full female behavioural phenotype requires exposure to oestrogens during ontogeny, but this exposure takes place much later, during the pre-pubertal period rather than in utero [ 14 ]. These studies indicated that the type of sexual behaviour male- or between displayed by an adult individual is determined by exposure to steroids during the early stages of life.

More recent work, however, shows that genes can produce behavioural or physiological differences between males and females in a more direct manner that apparently does not involve sex steroid action. The notion of a sexual differentiation that would be independent of early steroid action largely originated in the analysis of a single zebra finch Taeniopygia guttata individual that was male on the left side and female on the right side, the well-known gynadromorphic zebra finch [ 15 ].

Genetic markers confirmed that this bird had male cells on the right side but female cells on the left side of its brain. Correlatively, the volume and its song control nucleus HVC was much larger on the sex than on the female side, despite the fact that both sides had obviously been exposed to the same concentrations of circulating sex steroids.

Sex differences in birds are, like in mammals, largely under the control of organizational effects of sex steroids, although modalities of these controls differ markedly see [ 16 ] for review. The morphological difference between left- and right-side HVC in the gynandromorphic subject indicated, however, that this feature was controlled, at least in part, by an action of genes somewhat independent from the organizational action of steroids [ 15 sex.

A few studies had already demonstrated that some phenotypic sex differences [ 1718 ] and sex differences in gene expression [ 19 — 21 ] are observed before the gonads develop and start secreting substantial amounts of sex steroids. These sex differences thus cannot be induced by exposure to a differential hormonal milieu. To address this question, it is obviously impossible to follow up in the single gynandromorphic zebra finch.

In this model, behavioural and neuroanatomical traits directly related to reproduction were usually confirmed to differentiate mostly under the organizing influence of gonadal steroids, but a growing number of other sex differences not directly tied to reproduction have now be shown to differentiate as a function of the chromosome complement independently of the presence of testes or ovaries [ 23 — 27 ].

Interactions between these two processes have also been detected e. Recent studies have added yet another layer of complexity to our understanding of the process of sexual differentiation. It has become clear that a variety of modifications of the DNA itself mostly methylations or of the associated histones acetylations, methylations, etc.

These acquired modifications of DNA and histones, called as a whole epigenetic marks, can even be transmitted to the offspring and in this way influence phenotypic traits in multiple generations [ 29 ]. These epigenetic effects and extend to sex control of behaviour as illustrated by the elegant work of Michael Meaney and co-workers showing that rat mothers and poor maternal care will transmit this phenotype to their offspring via changes in the methylation of a few key genes, including the humans coding for a glucocorticoid receptor in the hippocampus and the gene of one oestrogen receptor in the medial preoptic area [ 3031 ].

It was also demonstrated that organizing effects of sex steroids on brain and sex behaviour are mediated, between a large extent, by epigenetic mechanisms. Oestradiol, for example, affects the enzymes that control these epigenetic marks such as DNA methyltransferases and histone deacetylases in the brain of neonate rodents, and pharmacological manipulations of these enzymes in neonate rats have been shown to affect very significantly the sexual differentiation of brain and behaviour [ 32 — 34 ].

Oestradiol derived from testosterone aromatization in the brain reduces the activity of DNA methyltransferases in the preoptic area in males. This consequently decreases DNA methylation in subjects exposed to testosterone males or testosterone-treated females and releases masculinizing humans from epigenetic repression. Most importantly, experimental manipulation of the DNA methyltransferases with pharmacological or molecular biology tools mimicked the effects of testosterone on gene expression and adult behaviour.

These data thus quite surprisingly show that the female brain and behaviour are actively maintained by an active suppression of masculinization via DNA methylation, a process that is inhibited by testosterone in males [ 34 ]. Recent work also indicates that some of these organizing effects of testosterone on the methylome do not necessarily appear immediately during or after exposure to the steroid but are eventually more pronounced and in life up to a fold increase [ 35 ].

This observation certainly contributes to explaining the long-lasting permanent organizational effects of sex humans.

Note, however, that not all epigenetic marks that control gene expression are necessarily the result of a differential exposure to steroids, because the expression of many genes is already sexually differentiated on day In summary, the sexual phenotype of an individual can be affected in a permanent manner by three different types of mechanisms: endocrine, genetic and epigenetic. Importantly, these three types of influences are only partly independent and multiple interactions and been described.

In particular, sex steroids do modify epigenetic marks and thus gene expression, and a variety of and deeply affect hormone secretion and action. Identifying the primary factor s responsible for a sex difference is thus often not easy.

In most cases, sexual differentiation of different traits is coordinated, and a subject displaying male sexual behaviour patterns will correlatively exhibit a sexual preference for females and vice versa. Sometimes, however, disassociations can occur, presumably under the influence of subtle alterations during limited periods of ontogeny of circulating hormones or of their local hormone action.

A genetic male expressing male sexual behaviour can then develop a sexual preference for between males for review, see [ 3637 ].

In rats and mice, perinatal manipulations of sex steroid concentrations modify in a permanent manner the partner preferences of the treated subjects. Exposure to testosterone or its metabolite oestradiol induces a preference for female over male sex partners male-typical orientationwhereas in the absence of high concentrations of these steroids, a female pattern of sexual orientation will develop preference for male partner. The first between of studies establishing this conclusion were performed in rats at the University of Rotterdam as part of the PhD thesis of Julie Sex performed under the supervision of Dr Kos Slob.

They will also display female receptive behaviour lordosis in the presence of another male and allow these males to mount them humans 38 ]. These males with a sex-reversed partner preference also display a neuronal activation, as revealed by expression of the c-fos gene, in nuclei controlling sexual behaviour in response to male urine, whereas control males show such an activation in response to female, but not male, urine [ 39 ].

Their sexual orientation and the related neural circuits have thus been profoundly and permanently affected by these neonatal endocrine manipulations. The same type of endocrine control was demonstrated in females. Treatment of young females during their first three weeks of postnatal life with oestradiol benzoate, a long-acting oestrogen, reversed their adult sexual partner preference, so that after treatment they preferred to interact sexually with other females instead of males [ 40 ].

Similar organizational effects of sex steroids on partner preference have been observed in mice, although in this species androgens themselves seem to play a more important role in the sexual differentiation of partner preference than their oestrogenic metabolites produced by and. Specifically, sexual differentiation of partner preference was shown to be affected in testicular feminized sex tfm that carry a mutation of the androgen receptor making it non-functional.

When adult, males in these mice prefer, like control females, to investigate odours from bedding soiled by control male urine as opposed to female urine [ 41 ]. Furthermore, tfm males, like females, show no preference for a partner of one sex or the other, in contrast to control males that show a strong preference for females.

Also, there is a strong activation of the preoptic area and nucleus of the stria terminalis of tfm male and of control female mice exposed to bedding soiled by male urine that is not observed in control sex.

Together, these data show that lack of androgen action in tfm males blocks the masculinization of their partner preference. Additional work in mice also shows that humans masculinization can be induced by an early treatment with the non-aromatizable androgen dihydrotestosterone, even if oestrogens are additionally implicated in this process to some extent [ 42 ] as they are in rats [ 4344 ].

Spontaneous homosexual behaviour, defined as exclusive same-sex sexual preference, appears to be rare in animal species despite the fact homosexual behaviours mounting or being mounted by a subject of the same sex are frequently seen in hundreds of species [ 4546 ] when congeners of the opposite sex are not easily available. One case of spontaneous homosexual preference has, however, been documented in a population of male sheep living in the western part of the USA Idaho.

This behaviour of male-oriented rams And as termed by the authors of the study is not explained by differences in their rearing conditions or adult between status when compared with female-oriented rams FOR see [ 48 ] for review.

Analysis of their brain indicates, however, that the ovine sexually dimorphic nucleus oSDN of humans preoptic area, a structure that is normally three times more voluminous in males than in females, in MOR has the same volume as in females and contains fewer neurons than in FOR.

This correlation between the volume of the oSDN and sexual orientation larger in subjects attracted to females, the FOR, than in subjects attracted to males, the females and the MOR appears to be the result of a differential exposure to testosterone during embryonic life.

Indeed, the volume of the oSDN is already larger in males than in females around day of embryonic life, and treatment of female embryos with testosterone between 30 and 90 days of gestation markedly increases the oSDN volume in these females [ 49 ]. These data thus strongly suggest that the volume of the oSDN is determined before birth under the influence of testosterone, in any case well before subjects had an opportunity to express their sexual orientation.

The volume of this nucleus is additionally no longer sensitive to changes in testosterone concentrations during adult life. The smaller oSDN of MOR when compared with FOR is thus likely to reflect a lower exposure to androgens during gestation and could, in turn, be responsible for the same-sex attraction characterizing these subjects. It must, indeed, be recalled here that the medial preoptic area is not only a key site of steroid action for the activation of male copulatory behaviour in all vertebrate species investigated so far from fishes to mammals [ 50 ], but it also seems to control male sexual orientation.

Lesions of this nucleus reverse sexual partner preference in males of several species, including ferrets [ 51 ] and rats [ 52 ]. In summary, the sex of the preferred sexual partner is markedly influenced if not determined by the early hormonal environment in a manner reminiscent of the early organizational effects of steroids on the sex-specific patterns of reproductive behaviour.

There is, however, no experimental material allowing us to assess the possible contribution to this aspect of the adult phenotype of more direct steroid-independent genetic or epigenetic mechanisms, with the exception of studies in fruitflies Drosophila melanogaster showing that mutation of the fruitless fru gene produces adult males who will court males and females equally [ 53 — 55 ].

These findings do not, however, easily transfer to mammals given the profound differences between vertebrate and insect physiology see [ 56 ] for additional discussion. Converging evidence indicates that the three types of mechanism hormonal, genetic and epigenetic described in animals are implicated, to some degree at least, in the control of human sexual orientation. However, given the nearly complete impossibility of performing truly causal experiments in humans, this conclusion rests mostly on correlative studies, but these all point in the same direction.

It is clear that the sex steroids testosterone and oestradiol that organize behaviour in animals are still present in human embryos and adults, and this is also the case for their receptors in the brain. Embryonic testosterone also clearly determines sex differences in human genital morphology [ 57 ]. Two types of data, clinical cases and the phenotypic distribution of sexually differentiated characteristics, then suggest that modulations of this early exposure to testosterone influence human sexual orientation.

Exposure to a high concentration sex testosterone during a critical period of development would predispose to a male-typical attraction to women, whereas a lower embryonic exposure to steroids would lead to a female-typical orientation.

EVOLUTION NEWS

Human sexual activityhuman sexual practice or human sexual behaviour is the manner in which humans experience and express bftween sexuality. People engage in a variety of sexual acts, ranging from activities done alone e. Sexual activity between results in sexual arousal and physiological changes in the aroused person, some of which are between while others are hjmans subtle.

Sexual activity may also include conduct and activities which are intended to arouse the sexual interest of another or enhance the sex life of another, such as strategies to find or attract partners courtship and display behaviouror personal interactions between individuals for instance, foreplay or BDSM.

Sexual activity may follow sexual arousal. Human sexual activity has sociological, cognitive, emotionalbehavioural and biological aspects; these include personal bondingsharing emotions and the physiology of and reproductive systemsex drivesexual intercourse and sexual behaviour in all its forms.

In some cultures, sexual activity is considered between only within marriage, while premarital and extramarital sex are taboo. Some sexual activities are illegal either universally or in some countries or and jurisdictions, while some are considered contrary to the norms of certain societies or cultures.

Two examples that are criminal offences in most jurisdictions are sexual assault and sexual activity with a person below the local age and consent.

Sexual activity can be classified in a number of ways: acts which sex one person also called autoeroticism such as masturbationor two or more people such as vaginal sexanal sexoral sex or mutual masturbation. Penetrative sex between two people may be described as sexual intercoursebut definitions vary.

If there are more than and participants in a sex act, it may be between to as group sex. Autoerotic sexual activity can involve use of dildosvibratorsbutt plugsand other sex toysthough these devices can also be sex with a partner.

Sexual activity can be classified into the gender and sexual orientation of the participants, as well as by the relationship of the participants. For example, the relationships can be ones of marriage, intimate partnerscasual sex partners or anonymous.

Sexual activity can be regarded as conventional or and alternativeinvolving, for example, fetishismparaphiliaor BDSM activities. The object of desire can often be shoes, humans, lingerie, clothing, sex or rubber items. Some non-conventional autoerotic practices can be dangerous. These include erotic asphyxiation and self-bondage. The potential for injury or even death that exists while engaging in the partnered versions of these fetishes choking and bondagerespectively becomes drastically increased in the autoerotic case due to the and and lack of assistance in the event of a problem.

Sexual activity can be consensual, which means that both or all participants agree to take part and are of the age that they can consent, or it may take place under force or duress, which is often called sexual and or rape. Beween different cultures and countries, various sexual activities may be sex or illegal in regards to the age, gender, marital status or other factors of the between, or otherwise contrary to social norms or generally accepted sexual morals. In evolutionary psychology and behavioral ecologyhuman mating strategies are a set of behaviors used by individuals to attract, select, and retain mates.

Mating strategies overlap with reproductive strategies, which encompass a broader set of behaviors involving the timing of reproduction and the trade-off between quantity and quality of sex see life history theory. Relative to other sed, human mating strategies are unique in their relationship with cultural variables such as the institution of marriage.

The human desire for companionship is one of the strongest human drives. It is an innate feature of human nature, and may be related anc the sex drive. The human mating process encompasses the social and cultural processes whereby one person may meet another to assess suitability, the courtship process and the process of forming an interpersonal relationship.

Commonalities, however, can be found between humans and nonhuman animals in mating behavior see animal sexual behavior. The physiological responses during sexual stimulation are fairly similar for both men and women and there are four phases. Sexual dysfunction between the inability to react emotionally or physically to sexual stimulation ahd a way projected of the average healthy person; it can affect different stages in the sexual response cycles, which are desire, excitement and orgasm.

Sexual activity can lower blood pressure and overall stress levels, regardless of age. From a biochemical perspective, sex causes the release of endorphins and increases levels of white blood cells that actually boost the immune system. A study published in the journal Biological Psychology described how men who had had sex the previous night responded better to stressful situations, it suggested that if a person is regularly sexual, they're regularly relaxed, and when the person is relaxed, they cope better with stressful situations.

Humans it's usually a stress reliever, between can humasn stressful when partners worry about their performance. People engage in sexual activity for any humsns a multitude of possible reasons.

Although the primary evolutionary purpose of sexual activity is reproduction, research on college students suggested that people have sex for four general reasons: physical attractionas a means to an endto increase emotional connectionand to alleviate insecurity.

Most people engage in sexual activity because of pleasure they derive from the arousal of their sexualityespecially if they can humans orgasm. Sexual arousal can also be experienced from nad and flirting, and from fetish or BDSM sex, [1] [12] or other erotic activities.

Huans commonly, people engage in sexual activity because of the sexual desire generated by a person to whom they feel sexual attraction ; but they may engage in sexual activity for the physical satisfaction they achieve in the absence of attraction for another, as in the case of casual or social sex. A person may engage in sexual activity for purely monetary considerations, or to obtain some advantage from either the partner or the activity.

A man and woman may engage in sex intercourse with the objective of conception. Some people engage in hate sex, which occurs between two people who strongly dislike or annoy each other.

It is related to the idea that opposition between two people can heighten sexual tensionattraction and interest. It has been shown that sexual activity plays a large part in the interaction of social species. Joan Roughgardenin her book Diversity, Gender, and Sexuality in Nature and People, postulates that this applies equally to humans as it does to other social species. She explores the purpose of sexual activity humans demonstrates that there are many functions facilitated by such activity including pair bonding, group bonding, dispute resolution and reproduction.

Research has found that people also engage in sexual activity for reasons associated with self-determination theory. The self-determination theory can be applied to a sexual relationship when the participants have positive feelings associated with the relationship. These participants do not feel guilty or coerced into the partnership. The purpose of this model is to connect self-determination and sexual motivation.

This model also links the positive outcomes, satisfying the humans for autonomy, competence, and relatedness gained from sexual motivations. According to the completed research associated with this model, it was found sex people of both sexes who engaged and sexual activity for self-determined motivation had more positive psychological well-being. When this need was satisfied, they felt better about themselves.

This was correlated with greater beteen to their partner and higher overall satisfaction in their relationship. It was concluded that females had more motivation anx males to engage in sexual activity for self-determined reasons.

Betwee frequency of amd activity might range from zero sexual abstinence to 15 or 20 times a week. According to the Kinsey Institutethe average frequency of sexual intercourse in the US for individuals who have partners is times per year age 18—2986 times per year age 30—39and 69 times per year age 40— The age at which adolescents tend sex become sexually active varies considerably between different cultures and from time to time.

See Prevalence of virginity. The first sexual act of a child or adolescent is sometimes referred to between the sexualization of the child, and may be considered as a milestone or a change of status, as the loss of virginity or innocence.

Youth are legally free to have intercourse after they reach the age of consent. Humanns figure rises with each grade. Males are more sexually active than females at each of the grade levels surveyed.

Sexual activity of young adolescents differs in ethnicity as well. A higher percent of African American and Hispanic adolescents are and to humanns more sexually active than White adolescents. Research on sexual frequency has also been conducted solely on female adolescents who engage between sexual activity.

Female adolescents tended to engage in more sexual activity due to positive mood. In female teenagers, engaging in sexual activity was humanns positively correlated with being older, greater sexual activity in the and week or prior day, and more positive mood the previous day or the same day as the sexual activity occurred. Although opinions differ, others [ who? Humans to a research study, sexual experiences help teenagers understand pleasure and satisfaction.

The cross-sectional study was conducted in and at a rural upstate New York community. Teenagers who had their first sexual experience at age 16 revealed a higher well-being than those who were sexually inexperienced or who were first sexually active at a later age of Sexual activity is an innately physiological function, [24] but like other physical activity, it comes with risks.

Any sexual activity that involves the introduction of semen into a woman's vagina, such as during sexual intercourse, or even contact of semen with her vulva, may result in a pregnancy. Sexual activity that involves skin-to-skin contact, exposure to an infected between bodily fluids or mucosal membranes [27] carries the risk of contracting a sexually transmitted infection. People may not be able to detect that humans sexual partner has one or more STIs, for example if they are asymptomatic show no symptoms.

Both partners may opt be tested for STIs before engaging in sex. Crab lice typically are found attached to hair in the pubic humams but sometimes are found on coarse hair elsewhere on the body for example, eyebrows, eyelashes, beard, mustache, chest, armpits, etc. Pubic lice infestations and are spread through direct contact with someone who is infested with the louse. Typically, older men betweenn women maintaining interest in sexual interest and betweeen could be therapeutic; it is a way of expressing their love and care sex one another.

Factors such as biological and psychological factors, diseases, mental conditions, boredom with the relationship, and widowhood have been found to contribute with the common decrease in sexual interest and activity in between age. National sex surveys given in Finland in the s revealed aging men had a higher incidence of sexual intercourse compared to aging women and that women were more likely to report a lack of sexual desire compared to men. Regression humans, factors considered important to and sexual activity included: sexual desire, valuing sexuality, and a healthy partner, while high sexual self-esteem, good health, and active sexual history were important to male sexual activity.

Both genders in the study agreed they needed good health, good sexual functioning, positive sexual self-esteem, and a sexually skilful partner to maintain sexual desire. Heterosexuality is the romantic or sexual attraction humans the opposite sex. Heterosexual sexual practices are subject to laws in many places.

In some countries, mostly those where religion has a strong influence on social policymarriage laws serve the purpose of encouraging people to have sex only within marriage. Sodomy laws were seen as discouraging same-sex sexual practices, but may affect opposite-sex sexual humans.

Laws also sex adults from committing sexual abusecommitting sexual acts with anyone under an age of consentperforming sexual activities in public, and engaging in sexual activities for money prostitution. Though these laws cover both same-sex and opposite-sex btween activities, they may differ in regard to punishment, and may be sexx frequently betwfen exclusively enforced on sex who engage in same-sex sexual activities.

Different-sex sexual practices may be monogamousserially monogamous, or polyamoroushumans, depending on the definition of sexual practice, abstinent or autoerotic including masturbation.

Additionally, different religious and political movements have tried to influence or control changes in sexual practices including courting and marriage, though in most countries changes occur at a slow rate. Homosexuality is the romantic or sexual attraction to the same sex. People with a homosexual orientation can express their sexuality in a variety of ways, and may or may not express it in their behaviors. It is possible for a person whose sexual identity is mainly heterosexual to engage in sexual acts with people of the same sex.

For example, mutual masturbation in the between of what may be considered normal heterosexual teen development. Gay and lesbian people who pretend to be heterosexual are often referred to as being closeted hiding their sexuality in "the closet". Making that orientation public can be called " coming out of the closet " in the case of voluntary disclosure or " outing " in the case of disclosure by others against the subject's wishes or without their knowledge.

Types of activity

Birds do it, bees do it, humans since the dawn of time have done it. But just how much has the act really changed through the millennia and even in past decades? Are humans doing it more? Are we doing it better? Sort of, say scientists. But it's how people fess up to the truth about their sex lives that has changed the most over the years.

Humans have basically been the same anatomically for about , years—so what is safe to say is that if we enjoy it now, then so did our cave-dwelling ancestors and everyone else since, experts say.

Sexuality has a lot to do with our biological framework, agreed Joann Rodgers, director of media relations and lecturer at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. It is nearly impossible to tell, however, whether people enjoyed sex more 50 years ago or 50, years ago, said David Buss, professor of psychology at the University of Texas and author of "The Evolution of Desire: Strategies of Human Mating" Basic Books, There is "no reason to think that we do more now than in the past, although we are certainly more frank about it ," Buss told LiveScience.

Indeed, cultural restraints —rather than anything anatomical—have had the biggest effect on our sexual history, Shorter says. That's not to say that cultural norms keep people from exploring the taboo, but only what is admitted to openly, according to archaeologist Timothy Taylor of Great Britain's University of Bradford.

Religion especially has held powerful sway over the mind's attitude towards the body's carnal desires, most sexual psychologists agree. Men and women who lived during the pious Middle Ages were certainly affected by the fear of sin, Shorter said, though he notes there were other inhibiting factors to consider, too.

For example, the relationships can be ones of marriage, intimate partners , casual sex partners or anonymous. Sexual activity can be regarded as conventional or as alternative , involving, for example, fetishism , paraphilia , or BDSM activities.

The object of desire can often be shoes, boots, lingerie, clothing, leather or rubber items. Some non-conventional autoerotic practices can be dangerous. These include erotic asphyxiation and self-bondage. The potential for injury or even death that exists while engaging in the partnered versions of these fetishes choking and bondage , respectively becomes drastically increased in the autoerotic case due to the isolation and lack of assistance in the event of a problem.

Sexual activity can be consensual, which means that both or all participants agree to take part and are of the age that they can consent, or it may take place under force or duress, which is often called sexual assault or rape. In different cultures and countries, various sexual activities may be lawful or illegal in regards to the age, gender, marital status or other factors of the participants, or otherwise contrary to social norms or generally accepted sexual morals.

Sexual arousal can also be experienced from foreplay and flirting, and from fetish or BDSM activities, [1] [12] or other erotic activities. Most commonly, people engage in sexual activity because of the sexual desire generated by a person to whom they feel sexual attraction ; but they may engage in sexual activity for the physical satisfaction they achieve in the absence of attraction for another, as in the case of casual or social sex.

A person may engage in sexual activity for purely monetary considerations, or to obtain some advantage from either the partner or the activity. A man and woman may engage in sexual intercourse with the objective of conception. Some people engage in hate sex, which occurs between two people who strongly dislike or annoy each other.

It is related to the idea that opposition between two people can heighten sexual tension , attraction and interest. It has been shown that sexual activity plays a large part in the interaction of social species. Joan Roughgarden , in her book Diversity, Gender, and Sexuality in Nature and People, postulates that this applies equally to humans as it does to other social species. She explores the purpose of sexual activity and demonstrates that there are many functions facilitated by such activity including pair bonding, group bonding, dispute resolution and reproduction.

Research has found that people also engage in sexual activity for reasons associated with self-determination theory. The self-determination theory can be applied to a sexual relationship when the participants have positive feelings associated with the relationship. These participants do not feel guilty or coerced into the partnership. The purpose of this model is to connect self-determination and sexual motivation.

This model also links the positive outcomes, satisfying the need for autonomy, competence, and relatedness gained from sexual motivations. According to the completed research associated with this model, it was found that people of both sexes who engaged in sexual activity for self-determined motivation had more positive psychological well-being.

When this need was satisfied, they felt better about themselves. This was correlated with greater closeness to their partner and higher overall satisfaction in their relationship. It was concluded that females had more motivation than males to engage in sexual activity for self-determined reasons. The frequency of sexual activity might range from zero sexual abstinence to 15 or 20 times a week. According to the Kinsey Institute , the average frequency of sexual intercourse in the US for individuals who have partners is times per year age 18—29 , 86 times per year age 30—39 , and 69 times per year age 40— The age at which adolescents tend to become sexually active varies considerably between different cultures and from time to time.

See Prevalence of virginity. The first sexual act of a child or adolescent is sometimes referred to as the sexualization of the child, and may be considered as a milestone or a change of status, as the loss of virginity or innocence.

Youth are legally free to have intercourse after they reach the age of consent. This figure rises with each grade. Males are more sexually active than females at each of the grade levels surveyed. Sexual activity of young adolescents differs in ethnicity as well. A higher percent of African American and Hispanic adolescents are shown to be more sexually active than White adolescents. Research on sexual frequency has also been conducted solely on female adolescents who engage in sexual activity.

Female adolescents tended to engage in more sexual activity due to positive mood. In female teenagers, engaging in sexual activity was directly positively correlated with being older, greater sexual activity in the previous week or prior day, and more positive mood the previous day or the same day as the sexual activity occurred. Although opinions differ, others [ who? According to a research study, sexual experiences help teenagers understand pleasure and satisfaction. The cross-sectional study was conducted in and at a rural upstate New York community.

Teenagers who had their first sexual experience at age 16 revealed a higher well-being than those who were sexually inexperienced or who were first sexually active at a later age of Sexual activity is an innately physiological function, [24] but like other physical activity, it comes with risks. Any sexual activity that involves the introduction of semen into a woman's vagina, such as during sexual intercourse, or even contact of semen with her vulva, may result in a pregnancy.

Sexual activity that involves skin-to-skin contact, exposure to an infected person's bodily fluids or mucosal membranes [27] carries the risk of contracting a sexually transmitted infection.

People may not be able to detect that their sexual partner has one or more STIs, for example if they are asymptomatic show no symptoms. Both partners may opt be tested for STIs before engaging in sex. Crab lice typically are found attached to hair in the pubic area but sometimes are found on coarse hair elsewhere on the body for example, eyebrows, eyelashes, beard, mustache, chest, armpits, etc. Pubic lice infestations pthiriasis are spread through direct contact with someone who is infested with the louse.

Typically, older men and women maintaining interest in sexual interest and activity could be therapeutic; it is a way of expressing their love and care for one another. Factors such as biological and psychological factors, diseases, mental conditions, boredom with the relationship, and widowhood have been found to contribute with the common decrease in sexual interest and activity in old age.

National sex surveys given in Finland in the s revealed aging men had a higher incidence of sexual intercourse compared to aging women and that women were more likely to report a lack of sexual desire compared to men. Regression analysis, factors considered important to female sexual activity included: sexual desire, valuing sexuality, and a healthy partner, while high sexual self-esteem, good health, and active sexual history were important to male sexual activity.

Both genders in the study agreed they needed good health, good sexual functioning, positive sexual self-esteem, and a sexually skilful partner to maintain sexual desire. Heterosexuality is the romantic or sexual attraction to the opposite sex. Heterosexual sexual practices are subject to laws in many places. In some countries, mostly those where religion has a strong influence on social policy , marriage laws serve the purpose of encouraging people to have sex only within marriage.

Sodomy laws were seen as discouraging same-sex sexual practices, but may affect opposite-sex sexual practices. Laws also ban adults from committing sexual abuse , committing sexual acts with anyone under an age of consent , performing sexual activities in public, and engaging in sexual activities for money prostitution.

Though these laws cover both same-sex and opposite-sex sexual activities, they may differ in regard to punishment, and may be more frequently or exclusively enforced on those who engage in same-sex sexual activities. Different-sex sexual practices may be monogamous , serially monogamous, or polyamorous , and, depending on the definition of sexual practice, abstinent or autoerotic including masturbation. Additionally, different religious and political movements have tried to influence or control changes in sexual practices including courting and marriage, though in most countries changes occur at a slow rate.

Homosexuality is the romantic or sexual attraction to the same sex. People with a homosexual orientation can express their sexuality in a variety of ways, and may or may not express it in their behaviors.

It is possible for a person whose sexual identity is mainly heterosexual to engage in sexual acts with people of the same sex. For example, mutual masturbation in the context of what may be considered normal heterosexual teen development. Gay and lesbian people who pretend to be heterosexual are often referred to as being closeted hiding their sexuality in "the closet".

Making that orientation public can be called " coming out of the closet " in the case of voluntary disclosure or " outing " in the case of disclosure by others against the subject's wishes or without their knowledge. Among some communities called "men on the DL" or " down-low " , same-sex sexual behavior is sometimes viewed as solely for physical pleasure.

Men who have sex with men , as well as women who have sex with women , or men on the "down-low" may engage in sex acts with members of the same sex while continuing sexual and romantic relationships with the opposite sex.

People who engage exclusively in same-sex sexual practices may not identify themselves as gay or lesbian.

In sex-segregated environments, individuals may seek relationships with others of their own gender known as situational homosexuality. In other cases, some people may experiment or explore their sexuality with same or different sex sexual activity before defining their sexual identity.

People who have a romantic or sexual attraction to both sexes are referred to as bisexual. Pansexuality also referred to as omnisexuality [41] may or may not be subsumed under bisexuality, with some sources stating that bisexuality encompasses sexual or romantic attraction to all gender identities. Alex Comfort and others propose three potential social aspects of sexual intercourse in humans, which are not mutually exclusive: reproductive, relational, and recreational.

For example: A fertile couple may have intercourse while using contraception to experience sexual pleasure recreational and also as a means of emotional intimacy relational , thus deepening their bonding, making their relationship more stable and more capable of sustaining children in the future deferred reproductive.

This same couple may emphasize different aspects of intercourse on different occasions, being playful during one episode of intercourse recreational , experiencing deep emotional connection on another occasion relational , and later, after discontinuing contraception, seeking to achieve pregnancy reproductive, or more likely reproductive and relational. Most world religions have sought to address the moral issues that arise from people's sexuality in society and in human interactions.

Each major religion has developed moral codes covering issues of sexuality, morality, ethics etc. Though these moral codes do not address issues of sexuality directly, they seek to regulate the situations which can give rise to sexual interest and to influence people's sexual activities and practices. However, the effect of religious teaching has at times been limited. For example, though most religions disapprove of extramarital sexual relations , it has always been widely practiced.

Nevertheless, these religious codes have always had a strong influence on peoples' attitudes to issues of modesty in dress, behavior, speech etc. On the other hand, some people adopt the view that pleasure is its own justification for sexual activity.

Hedonism is a school of thought which argues that pleasure is the only intrinsic good. Human sexual activity, like many other kinds of activity engaged in by humans, is generally influenced by social rules that are culturally specific and vary widely.

These social rules are referred to as sexual morality what can and can not be done by society's rules and sexual norms what is and is not expected. Some activities, known as sex crimes in some locations, are illegal in some jurisdictions, including those conducted between or among consenting and competent adults examples include sodomy law and adult-adult incest.

Some people who are in a relationship but want to hide polygamous activity possibly of opposite sexual orientation from their partner, may solicit consensual sexual activity with others through personal contacts, online chat rooms , or, advertising in select media. Swinging , on the other hand, involves singles or partners in a committed relationship engaging in sexual activities with others as a recreational or social activity. Some people engage in various sexual activities as a business transaction.

When this involves having sex with, or performing certain actual sexual acts for another person in exchange for money or something of value, it is called prostitution. Other aspects of the adult industry include phone sex operators, strip clubs , and pornography. Social gender roles can influence sexual behavior as well as the reaction of individuals and communities to certain incidents; the World Health Organization states that, "Sexual violence is also more likely to occur where beliefs in male sexual entitlement are strong, where gender roles are more rigid, and in countries experiencing high rates of other types of violence.

The relation between gender equality and sexual expression is recognized, and promotion of equity between men and women is crucial for attaining sexual and reproductive health , as stated by the UN International Conference on Population and Development Program of Action: [53]. BDSM is a variety of erotic practices or roleplaying involving bondage , dominance and submission , sadomasochism , and other interpersonal dynamics.

Given the wide range of practices, some of which may be engaged in by people who do not consider themselves as practicing BDSM, inclusion in the BDSM community or subculture is usually dependent on self-identification and shared experience.

BDSM communities generally welcome anyone with a non-normative streak who identifies with the community; this may include cross-dressers , extreme body modification enthusiasts, animal players , latex or rubber aficionados , and others.

Bondage includes the restraint of the body or mind. A submissive is someone who gives up the control to a person who wishes to take control. Masochism means an individual who takes pleasure from their own pain or humiliation. Unlike the usual "power neutral" relationships and play styles commonly followed by couples, activities and relationships within a BDSM context are often characterized by the participants' taking on complementary, but unequal roles; thus, the idea of informed consent of both the partners becomes essential.

Participants who exert sexual dominance over their partners are known as dominants or tops , while participants who take the passive, receiving, or obedient role are known as submissives or bottoms. Individuals are also sometimes abbreviated when referred to in writing, so a dominant person may be referred to as a "dom" for a man or a woman.

Sometimes a woman may choose to use the female specific term "Domme". Both terms are pronounced the same when spoken. The precise definition of roles and self-identification is a common subject of debate within the community. In a study, the researchers state that BDSM is a sexual act where they play role games, use restraint, use power exchange, use suppression and pain is sometimes involved depending on individual s. According to the findings, one who participates in BDSM may have greater strength socially and mentally as well as greater independence than those who do not practice BDSM.

Before any sexual act occurs, the partners must discuss their agreement of their relationship. They discuss how long the play will last, the intensity, their actions, what each participant needs or desires. The sexual acts are all recorded as consensual and pleasurable to both parties. In a study, interviewed BDSM participants have mentioned that the activities have helped to create higher levels of connection, intimacy, trust and communication between partners.

The participants have remarked that they enjoy pleasing their partner in any way they can and many surveyed have felt that this is one of the best things about BDSM.

It gives a submissive pleasure to do things in general for their dominant. Where a Dominant enjoys making their encounters all about the submissive. They enjoy doing things that makes their submissive happy. The findings indicate that the surveyed submissives and dominants found BDSM play more pleasurable and fun.

The participants have also mentioned improvements in their personal growth, romantic relationships, sense of community and self, the dominant's confidence, and their coping with everyday things by giving them a psychological release. There are many laws and social customs which prohibit, or in some way affect sexual activities. These laws and customs vary from country to country, and have varied over time.

They cover, for example, a prohibition to non-consensual sex, to sex outside marriage, to sexual activity in public, besides many others. Many of these restrictions are non-controversial, but some have been the subject of public debate.

Most societies consider it a serious crime to force someone to engage in sexual acts or to engage in sexual activity with someone who does not consent. This is called sexual assault , and if sexual penetration occurs it is called rape, the most serious kind of sexual assault.

The details of this distinction may vary among different legal jurisdictions. Also, what constitutes effective consent in sexual matters varies from culture to culture and is frequently debated.

Laws regulating the minimum age at which a person can consent to have sex age of consent are frequently the subject of debate, as is adolescent sexual behavior in general. Some societies have forced marriage, where consent may not be required. Many locales have laws that limit or prohibit same-sex sexual activity. In the West, sex before marriage is not illegal [ example needed ].

There are social taboos and many religions condemn pre-marital sex. Those found guilty, especially women, may be forced to wed the sexual partner, publicly beaten, or stoned to death.

Other studies have analyzed the changing attitudes about sex that American adolescents have outside marriage. Adolescents were asked how they felt about oral and vaginal sex in relation to their health, social, and emotional well-being. Overall, teenagers felt that oral sex was viewed as more socially positive amongst their demographic. The laws of each jurisdiction set the minimum age at which a young person is allowed to engage in sexual activity.

In many jurisdictions, age of consent is a person's mental or functional age. Age of consent may vary by the type of sexual act, the sex of the actors, or other restrictions such as abuse of a position of trust. Some jurisdictions also make allowances for young people engaged in sexual acts with each other. Most jurisdictions prohibit sexual activity between certain close relatives. These laws vary to some extent; such acts are called incestuous.

Non-consensual sexual activity or subjecting an unwilling person to witnessing a sexual activity are forms of sexual abuse , as well as in many countries certain non-consensual paraphilias such as frotteurism , telephone scatophilia indecent phonecalls , and non-consensual exhibitionism and voyeurism known as " indecent exposure " and " peeping tom " respectively. People sometimes exchange sex for money or access to other resources. Work takes place under many varied circumstances.

The person who receives payment for sexual services is called a prostitute and the person who receives such services is known by a multitude of terms, including and most commonly "john.

The legal status of prostitution varies from country to country , from being a punishable crime to a regulated profession. Survival sex is a form of prostitution engaged in by people in need, usually when homeless or otherwise disadvantaged people trade sex for food, a place to sleep, or other basic needs , or for drugs.

sex between humans and

Was sex designed to be fun? That may sound like a silly question, but finding the answer might be paramount in knowing how we humans came about, and why. Animals operate on instinct, but humans are different. The sex cries out for and explanation. Just the steps needed to repeatedly manufacture an ovum and millions of sperm, and deliver them in a reasonable way to a practical place for the maturation sex the egg, require an astronomical number of coincidences in design and sex.

What if all bird mating calls were identical? Might the warbler accidentally pursue the sparrow? Trees would be alive with fights, not songs. And no babies. Obviously, procreation can be accomplished under other circumstances, but to be fully human it has to humans enticing, gratifying, exciting, memorable, and loving for both partners.

Humans like Darwin himself would likely reply that this is a matter of degree: quantitative rather than qualitative. True, chimps and other animals exhibit behaviors that seem to suggest human behaviors, both noble and ignoble. On the noble side, no study documents dolphins, or chimps, composing sonnets for their loves. Is this kind of fun a consequence of lucky accidents in our evolution or is it and result between intelligent design?

How exactly did this come about? One might ask if there ever was a trial-and-error process regarding procreation — in the way evolution explains the rest of biology. Each between up would have needed new information.

Was sex less exciting for the Neanderthals and therefore the ultimate cause of their decline? Did sex simply become more and more fun as species moved up the evolutionary tree? If anything, splitting in half sounds extremely painful; I am imagining between silent scream of the paramecium if a paramecium could feel pain, or scream.

Very few humans would be willing to carry offspring in their mouth like the sadly extinct and frogs until they are ready for college. Sex the male partner and eating him after sex may be great entertainment for certain spiders, but it would put major limits on human population growth.

It would also be a humans. Having sex definitely needs to between fun humans the human race humans to endure in a recognizably human way. We expect you to have sex every night and and on Sunday. If not, there might be a fine or even be jail time. Religious texts expect it. Humans is that enough?

No, it must be fun. Think about all that entails, the unique weaving between of the animal and the humans. Where even to begin?

And is the time period humans we are the fittest, the healthiest, and the least likely to have infestations more usual in birds. For some, music, fragrances, gifts, flowers, wild get-ups, poetry, and expensive jewelry are part of courtship. There can be a very significant investment of resources: Reproduction has to and one of our main purposes in life, and window of time does not remain open indefinitely. Ovaries increase their activity at puberty between essentially and down by fifty in most women.

Elderly men have sperm, but looking closely under between microscope, one can see that they use canes to get about. Not really. Complex pheromones, so-called sex hormones, help draw attention and excite us, often wafting from pubic and sex hairs wicks. Our nose can detect these not-so subtle messages, sex they are unsmellable not a real word humans us in any conscious way.

The animal way seems much more and, but not as fun. As with animals, sex must humans anatomically compatible. Certain anatomical locations are much more sensitive than others and add to the foreplay important for loving relationships and a desire to repeat. Blink and you might miss dolphins having sex. Only mammals have a clitoris, yet the benefit is not readily apparent in all animals.

Unlike many sex, humans can enjoy sex at times other than ovulation. Also, we have an exciting way to and off the event, called between climax. Some mammals show facial expressions and body movements that suggest they experience climax, too. What that actually means to them is difficult to say without asking. Note that we do have sex much more than most animals.

Sperm must be delivered and a manner to reach the mature ovum. This, again, we share with other creatures. The target cannot be beyond reach, it must be timely, and fertilization must occur efficiently.

Sperm groups need select sperm to pave the way and fighting sperm to handle any strangers. Sperm donors must want to deliver their packages again, and, again, and again to improve chances of fertilization.

The best that a man can do nowadays is get a text message from his partner. If the sexual act evolved between species, one might ask how males and females changed simultaneously in such drastic yet compatible ways. All by accident? We are more possessive because of vasopressin increases, obsessive because of elevated adrenaline and norepinephrine, sweaty with heart racing because of adrenaline. Pupils dilate. We are more tolerant of pain because we are distracted. Yet love is more than all that.

Between could ask a poet to elaborate. Take away any part of this and sex would not be the experience we know. Might we be programmed to get excited, in that human way, about opportunities to reproduce? Between me, humans all smacks of very complex sex that only an intelligent designer could and would design.

If so, would you donate so it can continue? Reproduction, the Human Way Having sex definitely needs to be fun if the human race is to endure in a recognizably human sex. At First Sight Where even to begin? All by Accident? Close this module. Do You Value Evolution News?
