I have two images selected for my cartoon attachments; one just for laughs, and one to go with the direction I want to take thus short essay. We already learned from lesson one that human sexuality is made up of three main dimensions that include; biological, psychological, and sociocultural. According to the “Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS) ( ), defines human sexuality as encompassing the sexual knowledge, beliefs, attitudes, values, and behaviors of individuals.” When we talk about the three dimensions of human sexuality, we define it as, “part of your total personality, a natural part of life.” “The biological dimension includes basic physiology and genetics (Greenberg, Bruess, and Oswalt, 2014). Biological knowledge helps us understand how our bodies work (physical appearance, sexual stimulation, and reproduction). Sexuality is unconscious; predetermined by our biological makeup.” “The psychological dimension refers to our sense of well-being. This dimension helps form our attitudes and feelings about sexuality.” “The sociocultural dimension is the sum of cultural and social influ- ences that affect our sexual thoughts and actions (Greenberg et al., 2014). Such influences may be religious, multicultural and global, ethical and legal, or political, or they may de- rive from socioeconomic status or media input. The media helps shape public attitudes on many topics, including sexuality, gender roles, and sexual behaviors.” 2
