Sexual practices

This refers to a range of behaviours or practices that can occur between members of the same or opposite sex. People often make the mistake that if one does X that this must mean that they are Y. Once again this relationship is not clear cut or as simple. Some people engage in narrowly defined and mutually exclusive sexual practices whereas others are more willing to explore. For example, the term MSM (men who sex with men) became popular. This broad term applies to heterosexually, homosexually, and bisexually self-identified men who intermittently or frequently engage in sexual activity with other men. This broad term illustrates the complexities involved in understanding human sexuality.
