Human female sexuality encompasses a broad range of behaviors and processes, including female sexual identity and sexual behavior , the physiological , psychological , social , cultural , political , and spiritual or religious aspects of sexual activity. Various aspects and dimensions of female sexuality, as a part of human sexuality , have also been addressed by principles of ethics , morality , and theology. In almost any historical era and culture, the arts, including literary and visual arts, as well as popular culture, present a substantial portion of a given society's views on human sexuality, which include both implicit covert and explicit overt aspects and manifestations of feminine sexuality and behavior.
