Sexuality permeates many areas of human life and culture, thereby setting humans apart from other members of the animal kingdom, in which the objective of sexuality is more often confined to reproduction.

The behavioral differences between the sexes, such as differences in toy and play preference and in the degree of aggressive behavior, are most likely the product of complex interactions between the way that the child perceives the world and the ways that parents, siblings, and others react to the child.

 Asexuality Summary
Sexual reproduction involves the fusion of two gamete cells (the sperm and ova), each of which has half the normal number of chromosomes, a result of reduction division known as meiosis.
Among those who do not believe it to be an orientation, other suggested causes include past sexual abuse, sexual repression (of homosexuality, heterosexuality, or bisexuality), hormonal problems, delayed development, or disorders such as autism, sublimation of sexuality for personal, religious or cultural reasons, or simply not having met the right person.
Furthermore, according to some religious beliefs, sexuality itself is sacred or a divine gift; certain varieties of Tantra involve sex, for example, and some types of neopaganism and New Age include the concept of sacred sexuality.

While public health officials understood that sexual behavior was the major route by which the virus was spread, they also recognized that they did not know very much about the incidence of various sexual activities that facilitated transmission.
To understand the motives, development, and varieties of human sexual behavior, it is crucial to understand the systems of meaning and action--the cultural context--in which the "facts of sex" are embedded.
These facts include evidence of purposive, strategic behavior on the part of individuals to avoid diseases; evidence of the social context in which sexual partnering occurs; and evidence that adult sexual behavior can be determined from surveys using proper scientific sampling.

 Sexual Recovery Institute :: The Role of Grief and Loss in Addiction Recovery
No matter how much havoc or trauma the addict's drug/alcohol use or other addictive behaviors caused themselves and loved ones or how grateful they or others may be that the using or acting-out has stopped -- the addict is going to miss their drug.
The places, patterns and secret activities of their substance or behavior addiction were built into their life just as solidly as a job or home and changing these is difficult and sometimes painful.

 What is a Pedophile; What Is a Child Molester? Practical Steps on Preventing Child Sexual Abuse
Situational sex offenders frequently molest readily available children they have easy access to such as their own or those they may live with or have control over.
While the situational offender is merely taking advantage of a situation where a child is available to fulfill sexual needs he has been unable to fulfill elsewhere, the pedophile crosses the line within the framework of a relationship with a child he may have been cultivating over a period of time.
If pedophiles are able to publicly affirm their sexual orientation without fear for their safety, much of the pressure they are under would be alleviated and they would be able to have much more fruitful and fulfilling lives than they are now.
