Several examples of heterosexual deviance include: teen sex, extramarital sex, pornography, cybersex, sexual harassment, and prostitution. They are deviant because in each case, the behavior violates a social, cultural, and/or moral norm of appropriate societal behavior concerning sexual or sex-related behavior for heterosexuals. In some cases such as those just listed heterosexually deviant behavior is merely the violation of a social or moral code of conduct and the consequences associated with them are not serious, and/or they are violations of social moral codes of only a specific segment of a much larger population. However, in other cases heterosexual deviance can be far more severe with very
According to the dictionary, sexual harassment is the making of unwanted and offensive sexual advances or of sexually offensive remarks or acts, especially by one in a superior or supervisory position or when acquiescence to such behavior is a condition of continued employment, promotion, or satisfactory evaluation, however the real-world definition is a bit more nuanced than that. Sexual harassment can have more to do with the intentions, instead of the actions. A seemingly harmless act such as sitting close to someone and asking personal questions may not be sexual in and of itself, if that person's intentions are ultimately sexual in nature that changes things. Besides human rights interests, there are also cost factors involved in keeping
Different cultures “judge” pornography in different ways in different periods of time. There are a various lines around what is acceptable and what is obscene among various culture based on morality. For instance, nowadays nudity in public is tended to be acceptable in Western culture but still unacceptable in both Far and Middle East Asia. If the news above public in Eastern it is obvious to be immoral. It is not going to be an argument about it is art or not.
In Sexual Perversion, Thomas Nagel deals with the question of sexual perversion and what is considered “normal” and “abnormal” sexual behavior. First, Nagel begins by telling us his 3 conditions which can be accepted without any particular analysis; any sexual perversion will be sexual desires which are unnatural; fetishes of objects will be seen as perverse and plain sex will not; perversion will be unnatural sexual inclinations as opposed to unnatural practices adopted not from inclination but for other reasons. Also, sexual perversion requires a psychological interest, not physiological. To help explain what “normal” means, Nagel offers a “skeptical argument” that uses appetite to explain. Like hunger and thirst, sex is also an appetite and it can be satisfied in a number of ways (even those seen as irregular).
People believe that those who create this form of sexual entertainment are only feeding the violent urges of those individuals and making it more acceptable. Altman would argue that the pornography was doing the exact opposite. Those who watch violent pornography can be fulfilling those urges which in turn would make them less likely to act out those depictions in society. If violent pornography is seen as a danger to society and the wellbeing of others, then who is say that violent movies are not? Andrew Altman would argue that if there
A key part of sexual harassment is that it is one sided and unwanted. There is a great difference between sexual harassment and romance or friendship, since those are mutual feelings of two people. Often sexual harassment makes the victim feel guilty, but it is important for the victim to remember that it is not their fault; the fault lies totally on the person who is the harasser. Many times fear is involved in sexual harassment because it isn't about physical attraction, it's about power. S/he is generally in a position to reward and/or punish the victim, based on whether or not the offensive behavior is tolerated or granted.
I attempt to follow a value rule that is based on “utilitarianism” (Rathus, et al., 2005, p. 6), in which my values reflect concern for the greater good of society’s majority, rather than my own. As with my value system, my critical thinking skills in making decisions about sex have long been set. I remain skeptical of the beliefs and biases of others, preferring to come to my own conclusions concerning sex and what I find sexually stimulating. However, I fervently condemn many behaviors as immoral, such as rape, unethical as in the case of adultery, or against nature as with practicing bestiality. Other sexual behaviors, whether I agree with them, or not, such as sodomy, sexual preference, and any other sexual choices that does not harm another, are not mine to judge.
The Role of Pornography in the Etiology of Sexual Aggression provides a more accurate article citing both studies supporting its claims as well as studies discounting them. This provides for a more scientific paper, which, in turn, makes it more valid. The following paper will discuss the claim that pornography does not cause sexual aggressive behaviors with supporting facts and arguments from both articles. Pornography as a Cause of Rape: Summary Pornography as a Cause of Rape discusses the fact that pornography causes behavior that is sexually aggressive by promoting immoral and inaccurate beliefs in men. The paper focuses on the male mind and excludes any studies or discussions involving females as sexual aggressors.
Homosexuality is unnatural because it disregards the natural use of sex organs of men and women. It’s sinful because the bible clearly rejects homosexual behavior and the behavior also disregards the divine and natural law of the bible. It’s also very unhealthy because homosexual activities remain a major source of our transmission of sexual transmitted diseases. First, homosexuality is unnatural for many of reason; one being that the act of homosexuality disregards the natural use of sex organs of men and women. The human reproductive system is designed to be sexually compatible in order to bare offspring.
However it is the foundation of debates regarding the moral status of a large number of sexual acts – the latent stigma still attached to homosexuality is a prime example of the influence of the theological standpoint on sexual desires. Despite retaining some influence on the way we think about certain sexual practices the traditional theist conception of sexual desires is often widely ignored in modern times. A primary objection to the viewpoint is that it is an almost empirically observable fact that sexual desires do not necessarily aim at procreation. The massive use of contraceptives throughout the modern world is evidence
