Sex Guide

Sex can be described is a motive force (intention or drive) that brings two people into intimate contact. Much has been written and researched on this topic ranging from the biological basis of human sexuality, sexual development, patterns of behaviour, ageing, sexual problems, aspects of fertility to sexual offences. One of the first researchers in this area was Alfred Kinsey who wrote a number of reports on the subject. The topic is far from being fully explored with researchers continually engaged in understanding this area of human behaviour.
