Development of Sexual Identity, Barriers to Intimacy, and the Promotion of Sexual Health

There are three basic ingredients of an individual's sexual health: the development of their identity, their capacity for intimacy, and an enviornment which promotes sexual health. Barriers to identity and intimacy can come from family intimacy dysfunction and unhealthy cultural environments. Self identity and self esteem are essential ingredients for the capacity of intimacy. The self is formed in the context of interpersonal relationships and the cultural milieu. The failure to develop a postive identity and capacity to intimacy leads to identity and intimacy dysfunction. Lack of self esteem,sexual identity confusion and dysphoria, sexual dysfunctions and disorders, interpersonal violence are often symptoms of identity and intimacy function.
