    • Five Grades of Sexual InteractionSummary: With the evolution of self awareness in human beings, we have beenconferred with the ability to voluntarily regulate our sexual activities. We areexpected to act prudently and pragmatically but we often choose to actsentimentally and thus have a propensity towards indiscriminate sex. Humanbeings indulge in sexual activities to a varying extent. Depending upon natureand extent of sexual activities, sexual interaction are classified in to five gradesnamely, sex for money, sex for sex, impulsive sex, compulsive sex and post maritalsex.Sexual reproduction evolved early in evolutionary history as a means toperpetuate races and species. It is a means of exchange of genetic materialbetween members of the same species. This exchange of genetic material in oneor the other way has been seen in all types of organisms ranging from viruses andbacteria to human beings. Biologists interpret sexual reproduction as essential tomaintain vigor and vitality of races and species. Therefore sexual reproductionmay be seen as survival mechanism for perpetuation of races and species.In all species except human beings, sexual activities are self regulating. But inhumans instead of involuntary regulation of sexual activities, with evolution ofself awareness humans have been conferred the ability to voluntarily regulatetheir sexual activities. Sexual pleasure is the core sentiment or the incentive ormotive to indulge in acts of procreation but the primary purpose of sexualinteraction remains perpetuation of races and species. In humans, sexualactivities have wide ranging repercussions on various aspects of human life. Withacquisition of self awareness or voluntary intelligence, humans are expected toact prudently and pragmatically and therefore human society has felt the need toregulate this pleasure seeking sex drive. This need is partly because of the fidelitysentiment and partly because of the need to preserve integrity of the lowest levelof human organization i.e. family and several other reasons.However humans endowed with propensity towards reckless sexual activities,often choose to act sentimentally and not pragmatically and prudently. Some ofthe authorities in the field of Psychology even identify sexual deprivation as the
    • reason behind all psychiatric ailments. Depending upon attendant circumstances,human sexual interaction can be classified in to five grades which are as under:- 1. Grade1 - Sex for money Sexual interaction takes place only because of some reward in the form of cash or kind. Numerous examples are commonly seen for example Prostitution, screen sex indulged in by actors and models, sex to secure business contracts, sex to obtain other material favors. 2. Grade2 – Sex for the sake of sex Both the partners have a biological urge and no other emotional or material relationship. They engage each other sexually only to satisfy the physical need. Both the partners do not suffer from any inhibition to prevent them from having sex. For them it is just for the sake of fun and no other reason. None of the partners carries any historical baggage after the encounter. Examples are: one night stand, sex buddies etc. Sex buddies are basically engaged in some pursuit because of which they are avoiding any committed relationship but still have a sexual urge which they need to satisfy. So they explicitly agree to mutually satisfy this need without entering into any sentimental or material or otherwise binding relationship. 3. Grade3 – Impulsive Sex Both partners are sentimentally hooked by each other and at the spur of the moment that they have a strong sexual desire which must be met there and then. All inhibitions go hay wire. So two individuals indulge in transient sexual relationship. Most of the persons indulging in this kind of activity have a liberal attitude towards sex and look upon it as a pleasure seeking activity. 4. Grade4 – Compulsive sex Partners are locked under such circumstances that sex is inevitable such as live in relationship, keeps, between lovers etc. This is generally a prolonged relationship but without any matrimonial relationship. 5. Grade5 – Post marital sex This is sexual relationship between husband and wife. This sexual activity meets social approval. Here the element of mutual commitment is the factor driving sexual interaction. This grade of sexual interaction is socially recognized, confers legal rights and several socioeconomic privileges. It takes care of several short term and long
    • term human needs and interests. Post marital sex also satisfies the human sentiment of fidelity or exclusivity in sexual relationship. It makes the relationship intimate and is often the glue that helps sustain matrimonial relationship. Survival of family is crucial to parental care and care of the elderly. Finally it is for you to select among various options and to pass value judgments if any.Author: Dr Mahesh C.
