Sexuality & Gender

Student Services - Five students walking over the road outside the GCW library.

In the broadest sense, sexuality is the way in which a person expresses and presents themselves as a sexual being. It describes how important sexual expression is in a person’s life; how they choose to express that sexuality and any preference they may have towards the type of sexual partner they choose.

Every survey of human sexual behaviour reveals that there is a huge variety of sexual expression – the way we choose to behave sexually is usually as individual and as complicated as the ways we choose to dress or to earn a living. Human sexuality rarely falls into neat categories or lends itself to simple labelling.
