Sexuality is one of the fundament drives behind anyone’s thoughts, emotions and behaviours. Sex makes the world go around. In many ways, sex defines who we are. Human sexuality is a way in which people express them sexually. It comprises within itself the feelings and behaviours linked to biological, physical, emotional, erotic, social or spiritual aspects. The concept of human sexuality has come a long way with varied historical contexts; it lacks a precise definition.
Largely, human sexuality comprises of concern regarding human reproductive functions and the human response cycle. Sexual orientation is the pattern of the sexual interest of an individual in the same opposite sex. Physical and emotional bonds between people highlight the bonds individuals have with each other and how they manifest the feelings of love, trust and care.

Individuals may face problems in the sexual lives, whether it concerns the problems and conditions relating to reproductive function or the problems and disorders of human response cycle (sexual dysfunction; the problems individuals go through while sexual activity which prevents them from deriving satisfaction from the sexual activity).
