Personhood and Sexuality – Systematic-theological Reflextions and Perspectives


The author deals with the topic of personhood/human being and sexuality from a systematic-theological perspective and seeks the link between theological and human sciences. He reflects on different approaches to the phenomenon of sexuality, discusses anthropological and sociological conditions, taking into account the insights of contemporary human sciences. He then presents the basic principles of a biblical-theological understanding of sexuality and reflects the outcome hermeneutically. The insights of the human sciences on the phenomenon of sexuality are thereby perceived and brought into their meaning, but also questioned from the point of view of theology. Finally, he outlines the context of personhood/human being and sexuality in a systematic-theological perspective that can serve as a theological-ethical orientation for interpreting and dealing with sexuality.

Sexual activity of women – selected issues


Introduction. Today, a lot of people’s dreams are about attaining a sense of satisfaction from sexual life, staying sexually transmitted diseases (STD) – free or avoiding any infirmity and sexual violence. The overall change in people’s attitudes toward sexuality and numerous hazards involved in risky behaviors calls for some scientific research focused on sexual life to be undertaken.

Aim. The aim of this study was to present selected issues concerning sexual activity of women.

Material and methods. 210 women aged 18 to 73 years with a diagnosis of a disease of the reproductive organ. The participants were being hospitalized at one of four gynecological departments. A diagnostic survey using the author’s own questionnaire was performed.

Results. On average, the respondents had sex for the first time at the age range of 19 to 22 (45.7%). Most respondents have had one partner during their life (67.0%). Some 39.3% of the respondents admitted to have sex on a regular basis.

Conclusions. 1. Early sexual onset was mostly preferred by both younger women and respondents reporting the lowest level of education. 2. Irregular and sporadic sexual contacts were common for women holding a primary or vocational education degree. 3. It is recommended that selected characteristics of sexual activity of women, particularly regarding the number of partners and sexual initiation, were subject to periodic epidemiological analysis as the potential health risk factors.
