Being knowledgeable about anatomy and physiology increases our potential for pleasure, physical and psychological health, and life satisfaction. Beyond personal curiosity, thoughtful discussions about anatomy and physiology with sexual partners reduces the potential for miscommunication, unintended pregnancies, sexually transmitted infections, and sexual dysfunctions. Lastly, and most importantly, an appreciation of both the biological and psychological motivating forces behind sexual curiosity, desire, and the capacities of our brains can enhance the health of relationships.

Men and women alike often insist that a person's arousing body parts are not the most vital factors for couples when it comes to engaging in pleasurable, meaningful sex. After all, they point to other factors that are in their control, such as ability, confidence and feelings of love. It's common for many to measure pleasurable sex by using orgasms as a guide. And past studies have shown the ways that our anatomy -- our physical composition -- affects the number and quality of our orgasms.
Activities Genderbread Person. Moving into the next handout, the genderbread person is a diagram that helps us understand gender and sexuality, and the parts that make up both.

Gender identity is our psychological sense of gender.
This is a book about the making and unmaking of sex over the centuries. It tells the astonishing story of sex in the West from the ancients to the moderns in a precise account of developments in reproductive anatomy and physiology. In the one-sex story, woman is an imperfect version of man, and her anatomy and physiology are construed accordingly: the vagina is seen as an interior penis, the womb as a scrotum, the ovaries as testicles. The body is thus a representation, not the foundation, of social gender. The second plot tends to dominate post-Enlightenment thinking while the one-sex model is firmly rooted in classical learning.
