Pansexuality – What It Means?

A Short History of Pansexuality

While the term “pansexuality” has appear in popular culture and the media over the last few years, it has actually been around for nearly 100 years. Experts believe that the term “panxesualism” was first published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology in 1914. Specifically, a doctor called J. Victor Haberman tried to interpret a theory of Sigmund Freud. In general, Freud claimed that sex motivates everything, in contrast with the modern definition of sexual orientation. However, panxesuality was not widely examined back then. There were many reports of individuals during the 20s and 30s who loved across boundaries and labels in Chicago’s South Side and Harlem and were regarded as though they had a mental problem. In the 70s, the term was first used roughly in the same way as we use it today. [3]
