    Chapter: The Psychology of Human Sexuality (NOBA)

    Overview

    By Don Lucas and Jennifer Fox

    Northwest Vista College. 

    Sexuality is one of the fundamental drives behind everyone’s feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. It defines the means of biological reproduction, describes psychological and sociological representations of self, and orients a person’s attraction to others. Further, it shapes the brain and body to be pleasure-seeking. Yet, as important as sexuality is to being human, it is often viewed as a taboo topic for personal or scientific inquiry.
