265 PSY week 1 Critical Thinking and Sexual Decision Making One important way that I use critical thinking when making sexual decisions is by being a constant skeptic. I do not make sexual decisions without analyzing the situation from both sides: what happens if I do, what happens if I dont? I also try not to let the opinions of others influence my own personal decision. When it comes to sexual decision making peer pressure is often a factor, and if one wants to make the decision that is right for them they should try to ignore all other outside influences (friends, boyfriends, and/or girlfriends). Being cautious is also very important when it comes to sexual decisions. With issues like STDs or even AIDS it is imperative to be cautious when it comes to engaging in sexual activity with another person. One should ask questions like: Does this person have any sexually transmitted diseases? Is this person HIV positive? Without asking these questions outcome the can be deadly. Clearly critical thinking is an important part of making sexual decisions for both men and women. People my age do not tend to analyze their sexual decisions, and many are likely to make decisions based upon momentary wants. Unfortunately most of these people who act impulsively eventually end up regretting their decision. This is due to a lack of critical thinking about sexual decisions. One example from my own life would be the fact that I choose not to have sex with anyone that I do not know on a personal level. Before making any sexual decisions I like to know as much about my partner as possible. I do not come to any decisions until I have learned about their sexual history and their sexual health. I wait until I know all the facts, and then I make my decisions. Reference Rathus, S.A., Nevid, J.S., and Fichner-Rathus, L. (2005). Human sexuality in a world of diversity. (6th ed.) Boston, MA: Allyn and Bacon.
