Issues on homosexual leanings in adolescents always come up when the subject
is their sexuality. Let's grasp the ropes together and shed light on the very
origins of such behavior.
In the pre-adolescence phase, supposedly within 8 to 12 age range, there is
hardly any trait of heterosexual behavior even much so given that the
determine trait, in this phase, it is the notorious social division between
girls and boys, which will reflect on different groups. Hence, in these groups
of girlies and boyz that will arise curiosities, acquaintance with knowledge
about sexual relations and all that questioning, now all the more so
about the first time.
As for homosexualism in this phase of adolescence, it should be addressed as
something natural that stems exactly from segregation that the phase enables,
by aggregating girls at one end and boys at the other segment, and such is a
way absolutely natural and necessary for the development affective and psychosocial
of the adolescent.
Therefore the homosexual conduct exists, for it roots in by consequence lived
up in the phase of matter, and all that is in relevance, is that the homosexual
behavior in this phase heralds as one of its most notorious attitudes, a bigger
fondness by the opposite sex whether girls or boys, by contrast they distinguish
themselves in their ways of sexual discovery.
When referring to sexual exploration, I meant going about their regular activities
in this phase, which are masturbation and exhibitionism. Though, in groups,
it also takes place in a different manner, once for the boys, so-described activities,
may often take place in group, whereas girls, occurs in a more individualized
manner. Further in adolescence, which corresponds to the age of 13 to 19 and
thereabouts, might as well sift, a continuity of homosexual conduct, and now
even with a handful of homosexual stints, with no intruding from grown ups,
but such isn't a rule.
Incidentally these experiences may happen somewhat naively, with no intention
at all, and the most important thing is to know that this tendency during adolescence
not signifies, a telltale of sexual orientation in adulthood. As a teen one
could being through good group sex with same sex individuals, and that never
might come into play as a role model for future sexual choices.
Let there be known that phases which compound adolescence, and homosexual conduct
in such phase is extremely usual. So far so many are the factors involved in
determining sexual orientation other than just a phase gone by in adolescence.
Bonds with peers in this phase bear such high regards and profound significance,
as normal trait of sex-games resulting from the growing process.
