ALL ABOUT SEX: HUMAN SEXUALITY IS DIVERSE AND COMPLEX

We go through a lot of changes while we grow up. Between the ages of eight and 20, we grow from being girls or boys into being women or men. During this process, our bodies change, and our feelings change, too—our feelings about ourselves, our family, and other people.

We go through all of these changes whether or not we are ready, whether or not we want to, and whether or not we know what is going on. Sometimes it seems the changes happen too fast. Sometimes we feel they don’t happen fast enough. It is often very confusing.

Through all of this personal development, almost everyone has profound fears about being “different” from everyone else. What people want most is to be “normal.”

But what most people don’t understand as these changes are happening, and what many adults still don’t realize, is that being different is normal. This is especially true when it comes to our sexuality. No two people are exactly alike in the way they look, think, or feel. Nor should they be. Imagine living in a world where everyone was the same. Think how boring it would be.

Far too often, people fear difference simply out of ignorance. We fear what we don’t understand. But once we realize that it is our differences that give our society its excitement, we see that our diversity should be celebrated!

Sexuality is inherently diverse and complex. In other words, there is no one right way for women, men, or children to be sexual. Instead, human sexuality varies tremendously. Below is a brief explanation of how people differ in their sexuality in four very important ways: gender identity, sexual orientation, sexual tastes, and relationship characteristics. Many of these differences are common, and many of them are less common.
