Being able to share your fantasies with your partner is to be sexually healthy. However, based on what society thinks is normal a person may be afraid to voice their deepest darkest thoughts. Typically a person knows how their partner will react to certain things and they can determine if they should share their thoughts. There is an element where problems can arise when you share that the person you are fantasizing about it a close friend or a coworker. I think sharing these types of things would be great if both people are able to accept the fact that it is a fantasy and not a reality. ReferencesKing, B. M., & Reagan, P. C. (2014).

Seminar 5 DQ2Examine and explain: a) a statistically normal behavior, and b) a sexually healthy adult. Discusswhether states and communities should have the right to pass laws that restrict or ban private sexual behaviors between consenting adults (assuming that the behaviors cause no physical harm to either party). What are the implications of laws restricting or banning sexual behaviors between consenting adults, either opposite sex or same sex partners?Statistically normal behavior is based on one’s culture and society beliefs. It is defined as what is common amongst the majority of people. Considering that there are so many different types of behaviors that it is actually better to recognize this as a range of behaviors. Example of statistical normal behavior is that men masturbate more than women. As we have learned that these types of behaviors can change as society views change (King & Reagan, 2014).A sexually healthy adult is someone that feels positive and free to engage in specific types of sexual behavior. To be free is to have the ability to decide what is right for oneself. Making the right choice based on personal feelings and to avoid any infections or diseases also promotes health. Someone who feels shame about their sexual behavior is someone who is impaired (King & Reagan, 2014).A law against consensual sex between two adults is intrusive in a relationship and honestly I don’t believe a lot of people are following them. Also, these laws are not well known by the residential citizens. These laws were created a long time ago when it was a cultural belief that sex should only take place in a marriage and only certain sexual acts were acceptable. Our culture and society has changed and these laws need to be reexamined to see if they still apply in the new era (King & Reagan, 2014). Enforcing these types of law infringe on the freedoms of the people. Considering that the law of consenting adults and the sex act is not causing any physical harm then what people do in privacy is their own business. Prosecuting someone for breaking these laws is an unnecessary
burden on our taxpayers as well. This sex act is illegal in some states. Prosecuting everyone that has participated in oral sex would definitely overflow our local jails. This would also have a negative impact on citizen morale (King & Reagan, 2014).
