Document Summary

Conceptions of appropriateness or deviance of human sexual behaviours have varied considerably throughout history, but conversations are often superficial and skirt substantive issues. E. g. , sex education often takes the form of recitation of knowledge about physiological functioning and anatomical facts. No discussion of actual behaviours and their associated thoughts and feelings. Judeo-christian tradition had significant influence on notions about appropriate and inappropriate sexual behaviours within society. Prevailing attitudes of the time condoned sex between men and very young girls in marriage, concubinage, and slavery . St. augustine: sexual intercourse permissible only for purposes of procreation, only when the male was on top, and only when the penis and vagina involved. Oral-genital sex, masturbation, anal sex, pre-coital activities, and sexual activities with someone who couldn"t conceive (child or same-sex partner) sinful. Tissot: attributed a whole variety of ills to masturbation and recommended established controls on sexuality.
