Description
Chapter 5 – Sexual Identity, Behavior, and Relationship  We get messages about sex through sexual scripts: societal norms about rules regarding sex • Gender: girls are “supposed” to have less sex than men and it is more accepted for men to  have lots of sex; double standard (you’re supposed to be very reserved but crazy in bed­ a  lady in the street but a freak in the bed) • Social class • Ethnicity: “the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice”; “once you go black you never go  back”; “once you go Jew you never renew”; “Latin lover” • Relationships: it’s more accepted to have sex inside of a relationship than outside of a  relationship • Stereotypes: all guys think about is sex  Sexual development • Between the ages of 2 and 5 child may → Touch their genitals → Touch their mothers’ breasts → Also attempt to observe others undressing → Also play doctor and examine each other  ⇒ Not meant in a sexual manner WHATSOEVER  • Sexual behavior in children peaks at 5 • Then it declines and manifests itself around 11 or 12 (puberty) • Children are maturing sexually earlier than before. Why? Media, we’re seeing very hyper­ sexualized images all around; hormones in food that we consume  Construction of Homosexual Identities  • Sensitization: recognizing that one may be homosexual; they start feeling different than their  heterosexual friends; they aren’t sure yet •
