Do you think that our society is becoming more accepting or less accepting of diversity in sexual behavior? Why? The sexual revolution was significant as it acted to bring liberation to the already existing moral and social attitudes towards sex. Sexual counter-revolution on the hand emerged to stop sexual revolution through the establishment of new organizations legislations among others thus promoting sexually conservative programs (Money J.). The U.S can be said to contain both the permissive and restrictive minds since the two revolutions acted in opposition to each other on matters of sexuality.

Answer and respond to the following, please explain: 1. Explain the significance of the sexual revolution and the sexual counterrevolution. What changed in each case? How do these opposing trends show that U.S. society is of two minds—permissive and restrictive—regarding sexuality? Do you think that our society is becoming more accepting or less accepting of diversity in sexual behavior? Why? 2. Many people think of sexuality as a biological matter; however, sexuality is largely cultural. Explain the biological foundation of sex—how people become female and male—and then go on to explain why sexuality as a dimension of social life is mostly cultural. Consider the variation in attitudes and behavior towards the cultural character of sexuality over time and from society to society. 3. Identify four sexual orientations. What do we know about the extent of homosexuality in the United States? What is our understanding about the causes of sexual orientation? 4. Explain the significance of the Muxes of central Mexico for our understanding of gender. Develop a similar argument that takes the existence of transgender people in the United States into account. In other words, what cultural changes would be necessary for our society to recognize the full range of sexual diversity that exists here? 5. Apply the three theoretical approaches to the topic of sexuality. What are important insights provided by the structural-functional, symbolic-interaction, and social-conflict approaches? 6. Is it possible for a society to exist without clear-cut categories of "female" and "male"? If so, describe what such a society would be like. If not, explain why not. 7. How does sexuality play a part in social inequality? Consider factors including prostitution and pornography and their effects on women. Also, consider heterosexism and its effects on the social standing of gay and intersexual people. 8. Consider the issue of rape. Why have most cases of rape gone unreported? Why is this pattern changing now? What factors make date rape an important issue on college campuses? What strategies for change might reduce this problem?
