Situational sexual behavior


Situational sexual behavior is sexual behavior of a kind that is different from what is usual for that person (or from what that person normally exhibits) due to a social environment that permits, encourages, or compels those acts.

For example, people who travel overseas might not have sex with prostitutes in their home countries, but do so when they visit other countries, where such activities are legal or ignored by authorities. To contrast, for those whose primary sexual identification is pedophilia, visiting foreign countries where sex with minors can be easily practiced is not situational sexual behavior.

Other examples are people in prison, the military, single sex boarding schools, or other sex-segregated communities, where members of those communities often engage in homosexual behaviors but identify as heterosexual otherwise.

Many people change their sexual behaviour depending on the situation. For example, men and women in university may practice bisexuality only in that environment. Experimentation of this sort is more common among adolescents, both male and female. Common terms for this trend include "heteroflexible", "BUG" (Bisexual Until Graduation), or "LUG" (Lesbian Until Graduation).
