PERSONAL RESPONSE ON SEXUALITY IDENTITY 2 Over the last nine weeks this course has covered many interesting topics about human sexuality. A few of these topics are sexual decision-making and critical thinking, gender identity, communication techniques, styles of love, and components of attraction.

The subjects that have been discussed in this class can definitely help me think more critically concerning sexual decision making.
