      This classic is one of the most cited and novel approaches to psychology ever written. Hans Eysenck presents a descriptive and causal model of human personality in accord with the major concepts of experimental psychology and the physiological and neurological mechanisms that form the biological basis of behavior patterns. Sexual orientation refers to a pattern of sexual _____ with regard to one's gender identity. attraction The relationship between an individual's education, family structure, health care, and behavior with regard to sexual activity is studied as ________ by sociologists.

      Paired with these biological explanations of the perpetrator's behavior have been biological explanations of the behavior of a victim of sexual assault. For women, sexual activity with a limited number of partners is desirable and thus women have evolved to resist rape. Review, A Natural History of Rape: Biological Bases of Sexual Coercion. This difference has a major effect on how humans approach sex. The biology, anatomy and physiology of most mammalian life on Earth lead to an instinctive approach. The biological imperatives guide male and female sexual behavior, and anatomy does nothing to impede that behavior. Note I say "most". There is one notable exception: human beings.

    There is an ongoing debate in psychology as to the relative roles of genes and environment on the development of human behavior. There is little doubt that genes play a significant role in shaping certain innate human behaviors, such as sexual and parental behavior, social bonding, fear, and aggression. As in all animals, genes determine the underlying neurochemistry and circuitry that drive. J.D. Baldwin, J.I. Baldwin, in Encyclopedia of Human Behavior (Second Edition), Abstract. Both typical and atypical sexual behavior can best be understood in terms of developmental studies. Both nature and nurture are needed to explain the entire range of human sexual behavior, and sexual therapies also require attention to both of these elements.

Sexual behavior embodies the tension between biological determination, societal and cultural norms, and an individual's personal life choices. Sexuality and sexual behavior are subject to constant change.

Yes, genetics plays a part. Comparatively, when homosexual men are asked about their most recent sexual behaviors, more than a third (37%) report having had anal sex (Rosenberger et al., ).

Like heterosexual people, homosexual people engage in a variety of sexual behaviors, the most frequent being masturbation, romantic kissing, and oral sex (Rosenberger et al., ).
