Sexuality is a vital part of who we are, what we believe, what we feel and how we respond to others. Sexuality includes body parts, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, body image, experiences, thoughts, ideas, love, joy, compassion and sorrow. Sexuality can also be influenced not only by ourselves, but by our family, friends, religion, media, goals and self-esteem.
Sexuality is a natural and normal part of life. There are many things that both boys and girls go through and experience throughout their lives. Sexuality is about knowing yourself and your body and understanding the different changes that you will be experiencing as life goes on.
