R Lang & Associates Refers to Acclaimed Research
Team Masters and Johnson


Due to circumstances of an evolving society, which include the perspectives of an almost-completely-developed civilization, the extended health and longevity of the individual, and the progress of the family, R Lang & Associates has decided to implement a new clause to their medical division and occasionally refer to Masters and Johnson, the acclaimed research team who undertook the nature of human sexuality.  The research team, composed of William H. Masters and Virginia E. Johnson, pioneered research into the nature of the human response and diagnosis and treatment of sexual disorders from 1957 until the 1990s.  Later in 2013, they became the focus of a drama-like television series called Masters of Sex which debuted on the American cable network Showtime, based on the 2009 biography by author Thomas Maier.

An opinion expertly held is that the modern day hindrances of succeeding in a career, social status, and family can be tied-up in a person’s sexual orientation.  Experienced career people have discovered that the so-called tribunal issues of family and sex are no more difficult to overcome than other topics “tagged” as tribunal, such as those experienced in lesser-developed-cultures, primitive or startup governments, or laws surrounding how we are supposed to sanely live.  The accomplished adult may contend that sexual orientation is not really a difficult topic.

A person’s sexual orientation is believed to be caused by a complex interplay of genetic, hormonal, and environmental influences.  Usually favoritism is given to biologically-based theories giving rise to genetic factors, but also to both genetic and social factors.  Although sexual orientation lies primarily within biology and psychology, it is also a subject within anthropology, history, and law.

Professionals state their understanding of the “core attractions” that form the basis of adult sexual orientation which typically emerge between the middle childhood years and early adolescence.  Sexual orientation differs from sexual identity in that it encompasses relationships with others while sexual identity is a concept of the self.  Also, sexual behavior is related to acts of the individual while orientation refers to "fantasies, attachments and longings”. 

The exact cause for a particular sexual orientation is still considered unestablished.  Research has shown to determine the influence of genetics, hormonal action, development dynamics, and social and cultural influences in leading many to think that biology and environment play a complex role in forming orientation.  It was once thought that nonheterosexuality was the result of faulty psychological development resulting from childhood experiences and troubled relationships, including childhood sexual abuse.  It was later found that this explanation was incomplete and explanation still rests on earlier theories of both biological and psychological factors.
