Despite continued violations of sexual rights worldwide, there have been revolutionary changes where sexual rights have resulted in legal changes and social interactions. Advances in medical and scientific technology, the struggle for rights for the sexual minorities, equal rights for women, and an acceptance for diversity all had revolutionary impacts on the nature of relationships, as well as on social and sexual ethics and on the legal system. Moreover, the increasing mobility, affluence and leisure, declining influence of religion, and increasing understanding of sex and gender also fuel the rapid changes in the economic and social lives of people. The HIV epidemic has driven home the need to understand and appreciate the complexity of human sexuality from the interdisciplinary perspective of sexology. Entering the new millennium is a challenge for sexuality educators and advocates of sexual rights to continue to promote sexual health based upon increased freedoms around the world.
