Coming to terms with your sex orientation
Aside from individual preferences every one of us has his or her own sexual orientation. There are e three basic sex orientations: heterosexual, homosexual and bisexual. All of them are absolutely normal. Heterosexuals feel sexual attraction towards opposite sex while gays (homosexual) towards the same sex people. Bisexual person experience the same strong sex drive towards men and women. The most comprehensive study on this subject was carried out by Alfred Kinsey where he proved that 48% men and 19% women had at least one same-sex intercourse. Homoerotic feelings are also not a rare case among both sexes. About 25% of respondents experienced sexual attraction toward people of the same-sex.
Many teens can come to the point when they have to accept or reject his or her homosexuality. Unfortunately you can’t make a decision without going through a certain difficulty. First of all, you should decide on your sex orientation and this would be your primary concern, not public opinion, common misconceptions and your own fears. You deserve to be respected regardless of your sex orientation. Take following into consideration:
• Don’t push things on and name yourself a gay, if you are under 21 years old and experienced homoerotic feelings. Many youngsters had homosexual contacts at certain period of their life. If you have chance to get to know person of the opposite sex closer you can find out that you are more attracted to him or her.
• Don’t let gays or lesbians influence you until you will be sure of your homosexual preferences.
• The most significant sign of your orientation is sexual attraction towards particular gender. If you feel that you strongly dislike heterosexual activity and are not interested in women, your homosexual orientation is unlikely to change with the time.
• There is no single answer for what causes one sexual orientation. There had been a lot of researches on this subject and no one proved to be fully true. The only thing you can say for sure is that homosexuality is not an illness. As well as one person has heterosexual orientation, the other is attracted towards the opposite sex.
• You shouldn’t blame yourself if you found out you are somewhat different. You don’t choose your orientation. Mother Nature’s tricks are very complicated!
• Many people hide their homosexuality out of the fear to be rejected by society. This is not a way out actually. You can come to the point when silence will be unbearable and you will need to reveal your feelings or come out. There are a lot of questions to answer to yourself, like “who would be that person to trust my feelings?” or “when is the right moment tot come out?” and “what should I tell them?”. Although your family and friends can be quite friendly, it could take you a lot of courage to make a first step. Try to think things over and expect any reaction. You shouldn’t tell the “news” in guilty manner, because you are not the one to accused of any crime. Your homosexuality is just a fact others need to accept or not.
• Be informed before you decide to come out. There is a lot of information on the topic available. As long as you should be prepared to any attitude, information can be your biggest tool.
• If you feel you can’t manage with your emotions and anxiety ask for professional psychological help. This will make things clear and make this discovery easier for you.
