Hebephilia: see ephebophilia.

Hemisphere: as applied to the brain, either its left or its right half.

Hermaphroditism: having genital attributes of both sexes [from Greek, Hermes and Aphrodite, god and goddess of love]. Some invertebrates are simultaneous hermaphrodites, and some fish are sequential hermaphrodites that change from male to female, or vice versa, once or more often in the course of a lifetime. In the human species, hermaphroditism is a form of birth defect, also known as intersexuality. It is defined as male or female hermaphroditism, if only testes or ovaries are present, respectively; as true hermaphroditism if both tissues are found as in ovotestes, and as gonadally dysgenic [dysgenetic?] when neither tissue is clearly differentiated. Human hermaphrodites do not have the complete sex organs of both sexes. A congenital condition of ambiguity of the reproductive structures so that the sex of the individual at birth is not clearly defined as exclusively male or exclusively female. The condition is named for Hermes and Aphrodite, the Greek god and goddess of love. See also pseudohermaphroditism.

Heterogeneous: dissimilar in type, and having different or opposing characteristics.

Heterophilia: (adjective, heterophilic): [the condition in which love and lust are attached to those of the other sex.] A condition of being in which sexuoerotic arousal and facilitation or attainment of orgasm are responsive to, and dependent upon a partner of the other morphologic sex [from Greek, heteros other + -philia]. Synonym heteroerotic. See also heterosexualism.

Heterophobia (adjective heterophobic): the condition in which those whose love and lust are attached to persons of the other sex are dreaded or feared [from Greek, heteros, other + phobos, fear or fright]. See also homophobia.

Heterosexual (noun, heterosexuality): characterized by other-sex contact, either as a genital act or as a long-term sexuoerotic status [from Greek, heteros, other + sex]. It is analogous to right-handedness in being in conformity with the norm and therefore is not pathological in itself, though subject to other pathology. A heterosexual person is able to fall in love with, and become the pairbonded sexuoerotic partner of only a person of the other morphologic sex. Paraphilias occur predominantly in association with heterosexual pairing.

Heterosexualism: other-sex contact, either as a genital act or as a long term sexuoerotic status [from Greek, heteros, other + sex]. It is analogous to right-handedness in being in conformity with the norm and, therefore, not pathological in itself, though subject to other pathology. A heterosexual person is able to fall in love with, and become the pairbonded sexuoerotic partner of only a person of the other morphologic sex. Paraphilias occur predominantly in association with heterosexual pairing. Synonym, heterosexuality.

Hippocrates: the Greek physician (c. 460-377 B.C.) who is honored as the father of medicine.

Hirsutism: hairiness, especially excessive hairiness.

Histocompatibility: compatibility between different tissues, as in skin grafting or organ transplants, so that the immune mechanism of the host does not bring about the rejection of the graft or transplant. Histocompatibility antigen is expressed on male cells only, so that male cells may be recognized as foreign by the female immune system, if transplanted to a female.

Homicidophilia: see erotophonophilia ; lust murderism.

Homogeneous: of the same type, or having the same characteristics.

Homophilia (adjective, homophilic): [the condition in which love and lust are attached to those of the same sex].

Synonym, homoerotic. See also homosexualism; homosexuality.

Homophobia (adjective, homophobic): the condition in which those whose love and lust are attached to others of the same sex are dreaded or feared pathological fear of homosexualism.

Hybridization: the mixing of two varities, races, species, types or sub-types by cross breeding.

Hybristophilia: a paraphilia of the marauding/predatory type in which sexuoerotic arousal and facilitation and attainment of orgasm are responsive to and [dependent upon] {contingent on} being with a partner known to have committed an outrage or crime, such as rape, murder, or armed robbery [from Greek, hybridzein, to commit an outrage against someone + -philia]. The partner may have served a prison sentence as a convicted criminal, or may be instigated by the hybristophile to commit a crime and so be convicted and sent to prison.

Hyperorgasmia: the phenomenon of having an inordinate number of orgasms within a given period, as compared with a given criterion standard.

Hyperparathyroidism: excessive secretion of parathyroid hormone from the parathyroid glands, which are situated alongside the thyroid gland in the throat, and which play a role in regulating the amount of calcium in blood and body tissues.

Hyperphilia: a condition or syndrome, variable in etiology and diagnosis, of being sexuoerotically above standard or inordinate, particularly with respect to some aspect of genital functioning prior to and at the acceptive phase. supranormal in sexual and genital responsiveness or frequency.

Hyphephilia: one of a group of paraphilias of the fetishistic/talismanic type in which the sexuoerotic stimulus is associated with the touching, rubbing, or the feel of skin, hair, leather, fur, and fabric, especially if worn in proximity to erotically significant parts of the body [from Greek, hyphe, web + -philia]. hypertrophy (adjective, hypertrophied, hypertrophic): over-development in size of an organ or of its constituent cells; synonym, hyperplasia; antonym, atrophy.

Hypophilia: a condition or syndrome, variable in etiology and diagnosis, of being sexuoerotically substandard or deficient, particularly with respect to some aspect of genital functioning at the acceptive phase; impaired or deficient in sexual and genital responsiveness or frequency.

Hypopituitarism: a generalized endocrine deficiency condition produced by failure, either partial or complete, of the pituitary gland to secrete its proper hormones. Failure after surgery for a puituitary tumor is usually complete. Idiopathic failure may be either complete or partial. In some instances, partial failure may involve chiefly the secretion of pituitary gonadotropins, the hormones that stimulate the ovaries or the testes to produce their own hormones. hypospadias (adjective. hypospadiac): a birth defect in the positioning of the urinary opening on the penis. In mild hypospadias, the opening is only slightly displaced from the tip of the penis. In severe hypospadias, the opening is in the female position, and the penis has an open gutter on its underside, instead of a covered urinary canal. A hypospadiac penis may be normal sized or small. 2. A birth defect in the male in which the urinary opening is on the underside of the shaft of the penis anywhere from the glans (first degree) to the perineum (third degree or penoscrotal hypospadias). A small penis with a severe degree of hypospadias is identical in appearance with an enlarged clitoris below which is a single opening or urogenital sinus leading to both the urethra and the vagina. Artificial hypospadias may occur as a sequel to an injury, as in a circumcision accident, or be self-inflicted. See also micropenis (microphallus).

Hermaphroditismhypothalamus: a structure of the diencephalic part of the brain of special importance in governing vital functions, including sex, by releasing neurohumoral substances from nerve cells which, in turn, govern the hormones of the nearby pituitary gland, and also the behavior of mating. a structure of the diencephalon; a portion of the brain of special importance in regulating vital functions, including sex, by means of the release of neurohumoral substances from the nerve cells. These substances in turn regulate the nearby pituitary gland.

Hypothyroidism: deficiency of tyroid hormone; the opposite of hyperthyroidism. The thyroid gland is in the throat, near the larynx or Adam's apple.

Hypoxyphilia: asphyxiophilia [from Latin, hypoxia, oxygen deprivation + -philia].

  Our Philosophy sex is like dancing, it changes every time. It depends on culture, atmosphere and mood. Sometimes it is done alone, with a partner or in a group. It can be fast and hard or slow and soft. Sex is a combination of non-verbal negotiation and verbal cues: a scream, a twitch of the toes, or a flush of the face. There is no one 'right' way to move, only what feels good to all those involved.
