For it characterizes both men and women in the physical, psychological and spiritual plane as well as in their way of being, of manifesting, of communicating, of feeling, of expressing and of living human love. It is not until recently that its transcendence has been emphasized as a fundamental element of human development. Thus, radically changing the way sexuality is lived, for what was once thought true is now beginning to demystify. Therefore, it is important to stay properly informed.
