Sexuality is about more then just sex! It involves who you are, how you feel about sex and how you express those feelings. Who you are attracted to, what you want to do and what you are doing are all parts of your sexuality. Sexual attraction comes in many forms. People who are attracted to the opposite sex are called heterosexual or "straight". People who are attracted to people of the same sex are called homosexual, gay or lesbian. Others are attracted to both males and females, this is called being bisexual. Healthy sexuality is about being comfortable with what you choose to do and what you choose not to do. Your sexuality is part of who you are. We're all different and we feel differently about things so feeling comfortable about the choices that you make is a really important thing.
