Human sexuality

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Sexuality)
Gustave Courbet: Sleep (1866).

Human sexuality is the ability of people to have sexual experiences and feelings.[1][2] This involves biological, erotic, physical, emotional, social, or spiritual feelings and behaviors.[3] The most common form of human sexuality is heterosexuality, but homosexuality, bisexuality and asexuality exist too. An abnormal form of sexuality is called a paraphilia, while a normal one is called a normophilia.
