Background Information

The SAGE Encylopedia of LGBTQ Studies states  that human sexuality is "composed of three distinct domains: attraction, behavior, and sexual identity." Human sexuality research studies how these three domains intersect, their biological, social and psychological relationships and the cross-sections between sexuality and other disciplines.
