Human sexuality today 6th edition online
Some argue that sexuality is determined by genetics, while others believe it is molded by the environment, or that both of these factors interact to form the individual's sexual orientation. In the former, one assumes that the features of a person innately correspond to their natural inheritance, exemplified by drives and instincts; the latter refers to the assumption that the features of a person continue to change throughout their development and nurturing, exemplified by ego ideals and formative identifications.
Evolutionary perspectives on human coupling, reproduction and reproduction strategies, and social learning theory provide further views of sexuality.
Freud redefined the term sexuality to make it cover any form of pleasure that can be derived from the human body.
Some cultures have been described as sexually repressive.
The study of sexuality also includes human identity within social groups, sexually transmitted infections (STIs/STDs), and birth control methods.
Karla has provided clinical supervision, seminars, and lectures for other mental health therapists and professional groups.
She has taught human sexuality and female sexuality classes at Portland Community College, Portland State University, and Clark College.
