Human sexuality, as an ideology is more individualistic than general. The onus is resting on this write-up to consider the meaning and conceptualization of human sexuality in a personal perspective. Intuitively, sexuality is what characterizes us as human beings. It refers to the act of being gender sensitive, the way people express themselves sexually. This involves biological, physical, emotional, social and spiritual sexual expressions. Human sexuality is the holistic belief of a person towards the concept of sexuality i.e. the behavioral patterns of someone on sex-related issues. One could observe that there are various human sexualities evident all around the world in our contemporary society. This ranges from; bisexuality, homosexuality, heterosexuality, trans-sexuality, bestiality, celibacy etc, thus we have people that are she-males, gays, lesbians, sissies, perverts, pedophiles, nuns/eunuchs to mention but a few.
It is crystal clear that the society has embraced some sexual behaviors as normal but vehemently despises others that are considered as being obnoxious. This lends credence to what can categorized as equivocal sexualities and unequivocal sexualities. From my understanding they include: (i) Equivocal Sexualities in the Society: Bestiality (Sex with animals), Homosexuality/bisexuality/Same sex partners (Lesbianism, Gay), Incest (Sex with relatives), Tran-sexuality (Changing sexual organ), Pedophiles (Sex with minors), Sex with humanoids and Perverts (Uncontrollable sexual activities). (ii) Unequivocal Sexualities in the Society: Heterosexuality (Sex with opposite sex), Celibacy (religious nuns, eunuchs) or abstinence.
The acceptability and non-acceptability of sexual tendencies, depends mainly on the cultural value system of one locality to the other. This brings to mind the Western hemisphere’s visible sexual freedom and the African counterparts. The debates of legalizing some sexuality are still very fresh in the news. However, that is not the bone of contention here, the fact remains that people express themselves sexually, in accordance with what they believe to be satisfying to them. Talking about satisfaction, the society is witnessing the advent of sex dolls for men, who find them satisfying sexually than the female counterparts. Today, the market is saturated with dolls that are sexually intensified with body warmth and functioning female genitals. The examples of Jia jia and Harmony are looming. The rationale behind the creation of these dolls is said to be for helping “shy men” and men with high sexual libido. Personally, this appears ridiculous and bewildering; however some men are ‘head over heels’ in love with these inanimate objects, irrespective of how expensive they are, they are very willing to purchase and own a sexual doll to satisfy their human sexuality. This connotes a sense of moral decadence confronting the society as a result of human abuse of humanoids and this negates God’s command about sexual obligations and reproduction. Perverts will be encouraged and there will be a high chance of marital disruption when people become comfortable to marry robots than the female folks.
Considering my religious backdrop and cultural affiliation, I believe that any sexuality devoid of the normal cohabitation of a man and woman as instructed by God in the bible, and exemplified by our forebears, is considered as a sin against God and humanity. Some believe that every human is born with his/her sexual preference; this could imply that God created everybody that way. Whereas, this is arguable, God condemns obnoxious sexualities like homosexuality, bestiality, incest etc. (1 Cor. 6: 9, Lev 20:13, Rom. 1: 26-31). From these biblical references, God, being righteous, could not condemn an unnatural appetite or sinful desire in a person and at the same time creates a person with that desire. It is illogical. Furthermore, some believe that unacceptable human sexualities could be tied to the influence of demonism, a disorder in the genes or something related. The fact still remains that human sexuality is a conscientious decision and not enforcement.
Overall, I believe human sexuality is a personal phenomenon and should not be a controversial one in any ramification. Social problems such as sexual harassments, rape, sex slavery, sex dolls etc. should be adequately rebuked and condemned in our society. Human sexuality is to be morally inclined and anything outside that is problematic for the society. In other words, if one’s sexuality is becoming a concern to the peaceful coexistence of others, it is wrong. Therefore, individuals should be considerate, moral and sane about their sexual expressions in the society.
