Few studies have been adequately powered to investigate variability in health by sexual orientation, let alone by orientation and other key social characteristics (e.g., gender, race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status); yet research suggests heterogeneity in sexual minority health. Most research on sexual minorities health in the United States has been led utilizing convenience samples. In spite of the fact that the discoveries of this exploration have made huge commitments to the research, information gathered from nonprobability tests have constrained access for general health planning as a result of concerns with respect to determination predisposition and outer legitimacy. Populace based health measurements assume a key part in illuminating the prioritization of general health and wellbeing issues, and open interest in the health advancement movement.

For a study meant to compare straight and non-straight there was a disproportionate amount of straight people in the survey. While that provides a lot of knowledge about straight people, they were not the group of interest in this survey.

When American citizens hear the word “gay,” what is the first connection that pops into their mind? Does it mean happiness, love, or does it have a negative connotation? Throughout the years, the world epidemic on gay marriage has always been a controversy in the press. In the 1600s, if a gay man or woman practiced sodomy, they were put to death (ProQuest Staff “LGBT”). From the 1600s to the current day, gay rights are still a critical political debate in today’s society that needs a solution. For one to understand at this problem, he or she needs to analyze the causes and effect of this solution.

Asexuality has been an elusive and intriguing subject in American society. Dr. Alfred Kinsey published reports on human sexuality where “category X” was mentioned (Asexual History, 2015). This category was used to describe individuals with a lack of sexual relationships and reactions (Asexual History 2015). In 1979, Michael Storms came up with a model of erotic orientation and this model included asexuality (Asexual History, 2015). Paula Nurius published a study observing mental health and orientation and found that asexual individuals had both a lower desire and frequency for sexual activity than compared to heterosexual, homosexual, and bisexual individuals (Asexual History, 2015).

these participants were selected based on (a) a primary complaint of hypersexual behavior reported during intake and (b) willingness to participate in research, as presented in consent provided at the outset of the treatment process and several races were involved throughout the study. The study provided on the next slide is cross-sectional and corresponds on correlational Data and does not touch on causality.
Methods: The participants in this study were found using advertising methods, and were willing to be a part of it with their own consent. This is an empirical research study because it uses actual statistics rather than quoting the experts. It is also a quantitative study because it results in statistical information and conclusive findings.

These students could be from any year of school: freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, graduate. This study ranged from the ages of XXX – XXX years. We had females, males, and people who identified as other who had participated in the current study.

Pertaining to the current study, there was no limitation to what race was asked to complete the task, the status of a participant’s sexual orientation, if they were married, in a relationship, or single, or what major they may be studying at the time.

Marriage is now commonly defined as a ‘legally or formally recognized union of two partners in a personal relationship’. However, this is commonly associated in society as a union from which children are conceived. Same sex marriage is often then seen as unnatural as children cannot be conceived natural and is this deemed unnatural and is ‘contrary to the ordinary course of nature’. I disagree with this argument because homosexual people don’t choose to be gay and therefore I don’t think that his is unnatural. Whilst same sex couples can’t have children naturally within marriage, I don’t think that the purpose of marriage is to have children and therefore I see no reason why same sex marriage isn’t natural.
