Review the material presented in Chapter 11 on Sexual Motivation and Sexual Orientation. Most psychologists believe that our sexual preferences and orientation are largely determined by our biology.
1. What are some biological or genetic factors that influence sexual orientation behavior? Describe two or more conclusions from biological research of sexual orientation behavior. (These may include genes, brain functioning, metabolic, and hormonal, etc.) Be sure that your ideas are based on the material from your assigned readings or videos, and not simply opinion. (1 paragraph)
2. What are some psychological and social/cultural factors that may also influence sexual orientation? Describe two or more conclusions from psychological or social research of sexual orientation. (These may include personal issues, family issues, society, media or cultural issues.) Be sure that your ideas are based on the material from your assigned readings or videos, and not simply opinion.(1 paragraph)
3. Based on the research you described above, how do you now view sexual orientation? Do you see it as primarily biologically based or psycho-socially based? Be sure to support your views with research. (1 paragraph)
