STI

The Libido urge; often defined as the sexual instinct is the feeling that individuals develop when they have attraction for other people. Same intercourse usually known as the homosexuality was termed sodomy in history since people believed that there was no emotional involvement during the act. However, sexuality has been an interesting phenomenon that people engage debates and discussions about. It has been perceived as source of majority social immorality. It is trending fastly since current relationships are based on blended sexual practices.

In the olden day society, people perceived sex as an immorality and recommended it only for procreation and for deriving pleasure. However, the modern day culture has seen sex as one of the most fundamental thing in relationships. Relationships have been based on sex and people have given it a lot of concern. Good sexuality has also been viewed as an ingredient to successful relationship and marriages. Moreover, this act leads to addiction and this transforms into disorders in certain individuals. Additionally, the modern day societies have increased trends in sexual practices. The act has been commercialized and is now used as a form of occupation to many jobless individuals. It is always assumed that sexuality develops genetically, but there are some other arguments that note that it grossly depends on the environmental factors surrounding an individual.

Human beings love pleasure and leisure. Most people have believed that it is the only source of attaining pleasure. Some people take it as a behavior, hobby or for entertaining others. Today, it does not depend on one’s emotional attachments but has been used as a bridge to acquiring both materially and emotionally. The environmental contribution to sexuality has been seen as a major contribution to its development. People acquire characters from their environments and people around them. Others can learn in fora that advocates for sexual practices. Teenagers always find themselves into abusive sexuality due to hormonal changes that usually overwhelm their self control. These teenagers end up into sexual intercourse and without proper counseling; it results into addiction that might not be alleviated at a later stage.

Sexual mal practices can lead into the contraction to sexually transmitted infections. With the recent advancements noted in the sexual behaviors, the sexually transmitted infections have been rampant and many people are exposed to them. The sexually transmitted infections are specifically transmitted through oral, anal and per vaginal sex between an infected person and a healthy or infected partner. Although, it has been found that some of the sexually transmitted infections are transmissible through; blood exchanges and transfusions, inoculation with unsterilized instrument, breastfeeding and kissing. Women are the key players in the sexuality issues. They are oftenly involved in the sexual activity than men. However they are able to conceal the symptoms of sexually transmitted infections and spread it without their knowledge.

Unethical behaviors related to sex are now attributed to socio-economic status e.g. poverty, compel young girls to commercialized sexual activities. Drug abuse and influence has also played a key role in teenage abusive sexual practices. Technology and media have major contributions since it has been used to promote and influence generations on sexual behaviors. Infidelity among partners is also a contributory factor. Males are oftenly found to have multiple sex partners than females. This can possibly lead to the contraction of sexually transmitted diseases since people have ignored protective measures like use of condoms. Moreover, cases of rape can expose rape victims to the diseases. Females are considered to be potential rape victims since it is the weaker gender making them unable to resist or oppose rape attempts. There is great need in behavior change as a method of reducing sexually transmitted infections. Reducing the age at which people engage in sex can be one of the approaches in dealing with these diseases.

Ideally, conventional methods of preventing sexually transmitted infections look into counseling programs for teenagers and adults exposed. Older men are the sources of infection for the younger females. People usually engage in sex for emotional and relational security, financial reasons and desire. It has been seen that the sexually transmitted infections are rampant in drug user than in other populations. It also relates to monogamous status where there is lack of fidelity among partners. The sexually transmitted diseases have more than thirty different infections with the common ones being Syphilis and Gonorrhea. People live with stereotyped idea that having one partner is not satisfactory. This has made sexual activity so basic in relationships than in the older days. Young generation derive their pleasures and emotional security by having sex. Moreover, peer influence and hormonal changes have contributed to people’s sexuality.
