The Psychology of Sex

comes to hunger- but we are all externals
when it comes to sex.

either pleasing or disturbing- but they are
none the less biologically arousing.

members of either one's own gender or
the other gender.

How is Sexual Orientation
Determined
• There has been NO evidence that
sexuality is socially determined.
• Kids raised by gay parents are no more
likely to be gay that if they were raised by
hetero parents.
Thus, it is likely that sexuality
is biologically determined.

The Brain
• Simon LeVay discovered that there is a cluster
of cells in the hypothalamus that is larger in
heterosexual men than in heterosexual women
or homosexual men.
•However, the cluster could be socially
developed or some other biological factor.
