The Scientific Studies of Sexuality

J.C. Lemmer, Ph.D. paper on the topic of Sexuality


Sexology is the scientific study of the individual & collective sexual being & behavior (procreation, relation and recreation) with a unique w-holistic, universal integralistic (bio-psycho-socio-cultural), inter-transdisciplinary (inter-transactional) theory. Sexology has its own methodology, and unique field of study, aimed at between & beyond the poles praxis theories as outcomes.

“Sexuality is a central aspect of being human throughout life and encompasses sex, gender identities and roles, sexual orientation, eroticism, pleasure, intimacy and reproduction. Sexuality is experienced and expressed in thoughts, fantasies, desires, beliefs, attitudes, values, behaviors, practices, roles and relationships. While sexuality can include all of these dimensions, not all of them are always experienced or expressed. Sexuality is influenced by the interaction of biological, psychological, social, economic, political, cultural, ethical, legal, historical and religious and spiritual factors”

“Sexuality is the total expression of who we are as human beings. It encompasses our whole physical, psycho-intentional, cultural, social and spiritual being, development and functioning. Sexuality is the way in which we relate to ourselves in being a man or a woman. Sexuality is also the way in which we relate to other people and it includes ways of behaving which enrich our personalities and increase the love between people. Sexuality determines our whole human being, our origin and our past. It plays a major role in our present.”
