Abstract
Sexual behavior is a dynamic aspect of human life that is influenced by experience, awareness, ideas, beliefs, culture and society. Many different explanations are used to explain the desire to engage in sexual behaviors that are considered to be non-conventional or non-normative. This study explored the relationship between sexual experience, sexual awareness and sexual attitudes. Reponses on measures of Sexual Awareness, Sexual Experience, Attitudes Towards Unconventional Sexuality, and Sexual Orientation were compared between samples of swingers, individuals who identify as LGBT and students. The results supported the hypothesis for a relationship between sexual experiences, sexual awareness, and sexual attitudes. Swingers scored consistently and significantly higher than the LGBT group and the students, while the LGBT group scored consistently between the swingers and students. It is unlikely that demographic differences could account sufficiently for the results of this study.
