Human Sexuality and “Normalcy”

(this page is still being developed)

What is “normal” human sexuality?

That all depends—of course—on who you ask; and what you mean by normal and by sexuality [which also depends on who you ask now—as the definition of sex and gender (and even -phobia) have mutated since I was younger].

For the purposes of this discourse, let’s refer to the definitions of “normal” as found at dictionary.reference.com:

nor·mal

2. serving to establish a standard.
