Teens, by nature, can sometimes exaggerate or belittle problems.
Continuing shyness, shyness or neglect regarding reproductive health in our society makes solutions that can be easily reached difficult and can lead to serious consequences in all of these. When they have problems with their reproductive organs, young people need to know how to share it with the appropriate people and solve it.
Sexuality; It is the experiences of the individual for satisfaction and reproduction, which occur with spiritual and physical inheritance. Sexuality includes many elements; such as feelings, thoughts, behaviors, satisfaction, desire to get close to a person, desire to have a child.
Sexual intercourse is an experience shared by individuals participating in sexual activity as a result of their interest. Sexual intercourse between a man and a woman occurs when the stimulated and hardened penis enters the vagina with increased lubricity with the secretions released as a result of the stimulation.
The purpose of sexual intercourse may be the desire of men and women whose reproductive organs have reached the necessary development to have a child. Again, sexual intercourse is a sharing of those who engage in sexual activity for satisfaction. It is also a way for two people who love each other to communicate their feelings and affection.
There are some important points about sexuality and sexual intercourse. There is no definite answer to the question of when it would be appropriate to have the first sexual intercourse experience. This varies according to the person’s culture, family, environment, religious beliefs and perceptions. And it’s different for everyone. First of all, it would be appropriate to wait until the age to take responsibility and make healthy decisions for the sexual intercourse experience.
In addition, it is necessary for the adolescent to develop the ability to evaluate right and wrong, set boundaries and cope with problems in terms of human and social values. When all these developments are synchronized with sexual development, sexual experiences will provide more satisfaction.
Sexuality is an experience to be lived depending on a certain development and maturation.
The negative effects of sexual intercourse, which occurs as a result of unhealthy, sudden decisions given without thinking, can last for a lifetime. For example; like getting pregnant unintentionally and unpreparedly after intercourse. In addition, there is a risk of contracting various sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS and syphilis in random sexual intercourse or with more than one partner without protection measures.
Everyone has the right to have a say over their own body and to say “no” to those who approach them in a way they don’t want. This should never be forgotten.
For a healthy sexual development, sex-compatible hormones must be secreted first. Estrogen and progesterone in women and testosterone in men are some of these hormones.
biological sex; It is the physical structure and function characteristics that determine masculinity and femininity. Children aged 3-4 know the gender of themselves, other children and adults accurately. This is now an established concept for them. Specific to the culture in which one lives, sexual roles begin to be determined by the plays he chooses and the roles he takes in these plays.
Gender identity is the perception and acceptance of one’s own body and self within a certain gender. In other words; Gender identity determines the gender in which the individual perceives himself in his inner world. People who do not have a sexual identity problem describe themselves as “I am male” in accordance with their biological gender. ” I am a girl.” They define in the form.
Gender identity disorder, on the other hand, is the individual’s biological sex or sexual feelings and behaviors required by his biological sex, and a constant anxiety and restlessness. Transsexuality is a gender identity disorder. Instead of perceiving themselves as individuals without gender identity problems, transsexuals say, “I am a man trapped in a female body.” Or “I am a girl/woman trapped/trapped in a male body.” They define in the form. Because transsexuals believe they are in the wrong gender, they become increasingly alienated from their own bodies and want society to accept them as someone of the opposite sex. Transsexuality is not a choice. In other words; Individuals who have completed their sexual identity development in a healthy way cannot become transgender later on.
An individual’s sexual orientation is determined by which gender is chosen for sexual satisfaction. Types of sexual orientation are called homosexual, heterosexual and bisexual. Heterosexuals are attracted to people of the opposite sex for sexual gratification, while homosexuals are attracted to people of both sexes, while bisexuals are attracted to people of both sexes. Although they constitute the majority of the society, it is necessary to know that there are homosexuals in the society and to learn to live in the same society with them.
In the development of a healthy identity, it is a prerequisite for the baby to develop a close and warm bond with the person who gave his first love. This is a mother or mother substitute, caring person with consistent, loving, safe behavior. The fact that the person who is active in the upbringing of the child is at peace with his own sexual identity and with the other gender is the basis for the child to develop a healthy sexual identity. Expectations and attitudes about the child’s gender, which are reflected in the child, play an important role in determining sexuality. Having a mother with whom she identifies by adopting her characteristics for a girl and a father model for a boy are important factors in the development of a healthy sexual identity. The thoughts and value judgments of the society in which the family lives are also important in the development of sexual identity.
Masturbation is the individual’s self-fulfillment of sexual satisfaction. Masturbation is a natural act in every period of life and it is not true that it causes a physical or mental illness or habit. Perceiving masturbation as “shame, crime, sin” leads to feelings of guilt and regret after it is done. Thinking that it causes physical or mental illness can cause meaningless fears. However, it should not be forgotten that excessive masturbation can sometimes be a symptom of loneliness, lack of relationship and communication.
