Importance of Sex
Hi. In the classroom today you will learn a little about sex.

Sexual intercourse is the act in which the male penis enters the female vagina.

Traditionally, intercourse has been viewed as the natural endpoint of all sexual contact between a man and a woman.

The meaning of the term intercourse includes at least three different sex acts.

Vaginal intercourse

Oral intercourse

Anal intercourse

Vaginal intercourse involves penetration of the vagina by the penis.

Oral intercourse, or oral sex, refers to sexual activities involving the use of the mouth, and may include the use of the tongue, teeth, and throat.

People may engage in oral sex as part of foreplay before sexual intercourse, or during or following intercourse.

It may also be performed for its own sake.

Cunnilingus refers to oral sex performed on a woman.

Cunnilingus is the act of using the mouth, lips, and tongue to stimulate the female genitals.

Fellatio refers to oral sex performed on a man.

Fellatio is the act of using the mouth, lips, and tongue to stimulate the male penis and genitals.

It may be performed to induce orgasm and ejaculation of semen.

It can also be used as foreplay before vaginal or anal forms of intercourse.

Anal intercourse involves insertion of the male's penis into his partner's anus.

In human sexual behavior, foreplay is a set of intimate psychological and physical acts between two or more people meant to increase sexual arousal.

Foreplay involves different acts such as kissing, touching, embracing, talking, and teasing.

Of the various forms of foreplay, the most common includes fellatio and cunnilingus.

An orgasm, or sexual climax, is often the conclusion of sexual activities.

An orgasm may be experienced by both males and females.

An orgasm is characterized by intense physical pleasure.

The importance of sex is not the same for everyone.

Some people need sex many times a day to be happy.

Others are satisfied if they only engage in sex a few times a month.

Do you need sex to be happy?

Until next time.
