Past HS Students said that “Sex is…” “…a mutual agreement of compromising  privacy/personal space for the purpose of exchanging  pleasure or procreating.  It is very much about a yin  and yang style of balance, in which the participating  individuals must both exert and relinquish control.” “…a privilege…and a way to truly express your  attraction toward another individual.” “…a kind of freedom inside the human being.” “…an intimate experience and not an act that is  taken without consideration of the risks and benefits  for all who are involved.”

Sex is an intimate exchange of feeling through  physical interaction between people. Sex is an act of complete naturalistic instincts that is  important in our evolution. Sex is the most passionate act of professing your love  for some one. Sex is interesting and complicated.  Sex is  misunderstood. Sex is a way to sensually arouse yourself with the  companionship and comfort of another individual. Sex is anything you want to make it.
