  • Lesbian And Heterosexual Sexuality
    2,154 words
    During the 1970's and 1980's, much lesbian theory turned towards the question most influential, and also controversial writers was Adrienne Rich, whose work of a lesbian history, and why it has been covered up for all this time. They began to consider that women's subordination under men, and the necessity for men to preserve the institution of heterosexuality by whatever means available (this ranges from marriage and romantic literature to domestic violence and rape), was where the answer to th...
  • Society Of Hannah And Sula
    1,020 words
    In Toni Morrison's Sula, the society of Hannah and Sula is divided over each character's sexual choices. Even though they both engage in the same activities, they are each judged for these actions differently. Society has no qualms with the sexual choices of Hannah.

After her husband died she longed for the touch and embrace of another man a man who might fill ...
  • Condom Usage In Other Casual Sexual Relationships
    7,320 words
    Many theories and much research has been conducted on contraception in general, and more recently on condoms in particular, as a result of the AIDS epidemic (Lear, 1995). Condom usage and AIDS education are essential tools for reducing the impact of the disease, yet fewer than one third of sexually active college students report consistent condom use (Seal & Palmer-Seal, 1996). It seems that sexually active individuals rarely discuss safer sex or ask about their partners sexual activity before e...
  • Self Rated Facial And Body Attractiveness
    1,594 words
    Body Size, Physical Attractiveness, and Body Image among Young Adult Women: Relationships to Sexual Experience and Sexual Esteem. Introduction: It is hardly necessary to conduct a formal scientific study in order to determine that a woman's physical appearance is an important factor in her ability to attract members of the opposite sex. This idea is nothing new to us. Although the cultural standards of attractiveness have continued to change over the years (Marilyn Monroe vs. Twiggy vs. Cindy Cr...

    A Review of Relationships After Sexual Victimization Abstract Flangan and Furman conducted two studies to examine the links between sexual victimization and perceptions of romantic, parental, and peer relationships.

Many adolescent and young women experience some form of undesired or forced sexual experience with strangers or acquaintances. ...
  • Sexual Problems In Their Marriages
    1,570 words
    Overcoming Marital Conflict Marriages are made, not in heaven, but by wonderfully fallible human beings who hope for the best, but who often do precious little to make this most challenging and complicated relationship work. From the very first couple and their differing view point over the apple to modern times, men and women have always disagreed. Both sexes are born with inherently different personality traits. Although mankind knows they will never see eye to eye with the opposite; they stil...
  • Lesbian Couples Like Their Heterosexual Couples
    626 words
    Lesbian by Choice There are many labels, names and categories that have been assigned or given to lesbians. What is 'lesbian'? Is it a certain type of woman? Does one lesbian have an identical feature or character as another lesbian? Does a lesbian have something extra or something missing from heterosexual women? This notion that we can classify a human being by their sexual preference is absolutely ludicrous and unsubstantiated! Women are just that, women. Sexual attraction to humans, be it th...
  • Relationship Between Roxy And Buck Claflin
    661 words
    Barbara Goldsmith, author of Other Powers, demonstrated many times throughout the book that sexual relationships were spheres of force relations in which power is displayed.

  • Derridas Critique Of Metaphysics
    600 words
    Derridas critique of metaphysics together with the analysis of feminism reveals the rejection of the idea that women or men have any special or different kind of essence. Derrida shows that women should be equal with men in every aspect, because there is not certain space for them, consequently not special role to fill. Despite this outward rejection of essences, the very idea of sexual difference seems to carry some metaphysical connotations, for in order to have actual sexual difference, there...
  • Sexual Activity Between Father And Mother
    1,079 words
    Sex in Ragtime Throughout the novel, there are instances of both violent and more refined sexual references. While an obvious reason for these is the titillating effects of them, there are deeper, more relevant reasons for them. There are three main groups within which the sexual activity takes place: Father and Mother, Younger Brother and Evelyn Nesbit, and Harry Houdini and Harry K. Thaw. Some are more obvious and explicit than others, but they all have great purpose. The sexual activity betwe...
  • Hazel's Dependence On His Car
    1,757 words
    The Essex and Hazel Motes in Flannery O'Connor's Wise Blood In her 1952 novel Wise Blood, Flannery O'Connor presents Hazel Motes's Essex automobile as a symbol for Hazel himself. The car's dilapidated state corresponds to Motes's own spiritual decay; however, the initial quality of the car's workmanship corresponds to Hazel's Christian upbringing, which he cannot deny in spite of himself. Motes's identification with and reliance upon his car as a means of escape becomes ironic as the Essex conti...
  • Human Intellectual And Sexual Relationships
    3,571 words
    In the novel Lady Chatterley's Lover, by D.H. Lawrence, the author took a different view of the relationship between the two sexes than was generally discussed before in novels. The themes, descriptions and words he used were highly controversial at the time it was written, causing its first publications to be in Italy in 1928 even though the author was English. It was not published until the 1960's in England, and even then amongst great controversy due to the reputation of being a sordid book ...
  • Summary Of Thomas Nagel's Sexual Perversion
    622 words
    In the essay "Sexual Perversion", Thomas Nagel attempts to form a general definition of what constitutes perversion.

  • Role Of Attraction In Cross Sex Friendship
    2,105 words
    Society has a hard time believing a "just friends" label between people of the opposite sex. Or maybe it's that "just friends" implies that "the relationship is not what it could or ought to be but is "just" a friendship". (O'Meara, 1989) Many different values and behaviors affect cross sex friendships such as, attraction, gender roles, past relationships, education and obviously, family values. In the first article, 'I like you... as a friend': The role of attraction in cross-sex friendship" Re...
