Abstract

How did the concept of sex relations change through ages? Physical intimacy – heterosexual and homosexual – has been described in history from the antiquity. The social components of sexual behavior – taboos, regulations, the influence of society and politics – have had a profound impact on the world cultures, starting from the prehistoric times.
