Sexual attraction is different for everyone. What one person finds attractive, another person might not.
Attraction can be based on many things: physical appearance, a person’s voice, or smell, what clothes they wear, what culture they’re from, their personality, charm, politeness – the list goes on.
Humans are diverse in terms of their sexual likes and dislikes. Sexual diversity is something that should be celebrated.
Throughout life, you will begin to recognize what you find attractive and what your sexual likes are, and you may also notice that these likes may change or develop over time.
Sexual orientation can be used to categorize different types of sexual attraction based on a person’s sex. Learn more about sexual orientation and sexual diversity in the LGBTTQ+ section.
