Sexual Expressionuman sexuality is a complex part of life, with cultural, psychological, and biological influences shaping how people choose to express their sexu – ‘ ality. Because of the varied influences, it is important to view sexual be­haviors in an open, nonjudgmental fashion. In this chapter, we will dis­cuss adult sexual behaviors from early adulthood through the senior years. After a brief discussion of the role of hormones, ethnicity, and religion, we will explore the human sex­ual response cycle and various ways that adults express their sexuality.
