Terminologies of Sex and Gender have not always been discriminated against in English literature. These terms were used as a metonym or having the same meaning. But their uses are seemly unmistakable, and it is necessary to understand the discrepancy between the two.
In general terms, sex attributes to the biological vibrational characters between males and females, such as the genitalia and genetic alterations.
While gender is more complex to define, it indicates a male or female role in the community as a gender role. So you can say that it is the individual’s concept about themselves.
Sexuality: The Person’s Nature
Furthermore, Sexuality is a diversified and personal concept, and it is a paramount aspect of who you are. So it is obvious that deliberating your Sexuality can be a very emancipating, appealing, and confidential experience.
Moreover, sexuality includes different kinds of persons that possess a completely different nature, such as,
Heterosexuality is when one person is attracted to another person of the opposite sex, like boys attracted to girls and women interested in men.
Then there come homosexual persons that are attracted to the same sex, and around 10% of people possess same-sex attraction, more often during their puberty. Some people are attracted to the same sex.
Lesbian is the familiar terminology for people who are women and are attracted to the same sex
In contrast, Gay is mostly used for people who are men and are same-sex fascinated. Sexuality can be more arduous than being straight or gay/lesbian.
Some people are interested in both men and women and are commonly known as bisexual.
Lastly, some people do not experience sexual attraction or are attracted very little to other people, whether of the same sex or opposite; this condition is commonly known as Asexuality.
So this was some elaboration about Sex and Sexuality. Now I would l to include some details about gender variations and cataloging.
So basically, there are many gender identities because gender can be more complicated in defining people. These are some classification that includes:
- Binary Gender
Binary gender; people having Binary Gender are perfect men and perfect females.
- Non-binary Gender
Then there comes non-binary gender that includes those who do not perfectly recognize as a male or female, somehow merely as one of those two genders.
Transgender is another category that includes those people whose gender is recognized differently from the one they were termed at birth.
Furthermore, there are some other gender-related kinds such as, Two-spirit (those individuals who walk between two genders and are not specified to one particular gender), Cisgender are those people whose gender matches with the gender that was assigned to them at their birth, Genderqueer ( nor male neither female) and Gender fluid (Gender varies over time), etc. Besides all these sex and gender-related concepts, there are some myths about sex that are not true at all.
Myths, Folk Tales about Sex
Some myths like “Sex better when you are youthful “No doubt sex is more entertaining you are young, but the most sexually active older adults have the most satisfying and pleasurable sex of their lives.
Another myth that circulates is “Women are less excited for sex than men,” somehow, it is true Women can become less interested as a result of childhood abuse or some relationship issues, or insistence of children, etc., but a sexually satisfied woman is a cheerful and sex love.
Here comes one more false myth: “Men must ejaculate to experience sexual pleasure,” Which is a prevalent belief for women probably.
Some other illusions about sex are “Less than 10% of women experience sexual pain,” which is false Because most women experience sexual pain.
“Any man can learn to control his ejaculation”; This is another false allegory about sex.
“If couples want to climax synchronously during intercourse, so the best bet is for one of them to use their fingers or a vibrator to deliver some joy to the clitoris” This is also a delusion.
“Women are more fraternized to hamper their sexual attraction to one man at a time, but women’s biology and personality are both well-suited to more than one man.”
“A man must have an erection for a pleasurable sexual play.’
Foreplay does not need an erection and turning a woman by rousing the woman, and the process of rousing can be very pleasurable in itself.
