Psycho-sexual development in life

 

Q.17. Describe the psycho-sexual development from birth till death of human being sex ?

Ans. A new born baby cries for protection as he/she enters the new environment quite changed from that floating in the dark world of the uterus at 91 to 920 Fahrenheit temperature. The mother who cried at the time of parturition with pangs of pain in moved by the cry of her neonate and comforts him/her with love and assurance of food and protection. A neonate has various simple sex instincts and impulses which later on fuse to form gradually complicated impulses.
A new born child has the latent psycho-sexual disorders experiences of his/her for parents. The total sex energy is called libido which manifests itself in different forms of sexual behaviour. The very primitive form of various sex instincts is seen in early childhood particularly during infancy by appearing and disappearing in vague phases. Most of the sex behaviours in the two genders are common but differences occur due to the presence of Y sex chromosome in male and X sex chromosome in female. Suckling of breast is a pleasurable act for nutrition and does not gratify sex of the infant. It should be clear that pleasurable sensations of suckling and defaecation are not sexual in nature. Survival and not sexuality is the basic aim of an infant. Sociability, curiosity and exploratory behaviour of childhood is wrongly interpreted by some as sexual behaviour. Puberty or pubescence is marked by the working up of sexual desire and emotions. Various diverse over lapping short stage desires appear with self love, attraction towards same gender peer, liking elderly persons of both genders and lastly love for opposite gender. Behavioral maturation takes place during adolescence.
There is bubbling of sex energy which must be properly channelised by sex education in school during puberty and adolescence. Adulthood or youth is the best period for sexual enjoyment and procreation thereby fulfilling the aim of nature for creating this life. Middle age is marked by climacteric which is characterized by gradual loss of sexual interest. Old age which is mainly because of destruction of T cells which regulate the immunological system of tile body marks the end of sexual life and in fact the end of purpose of life.
