This chapter begins with a discussion of the four dimensions of human sexuality: firstly, the type of specific action patterns that are produced by the individual (performance) and the motivation underlying the expression of these behaviors; secondly, the orientation of the behavior and of sexual fantasies associated with it (sexual orientation); thirdly, the sexual identity that the individual believes he or she has; and finally, the sexual role that the individual plays in society. It then turns to a discussion of homosexuality and bisexuality.
