The sexual revolution (also known broadly as a time of "sexual liberation") is a social outlook which challenges traditional codes of behaviour related to sexuality and interpersonal relationships. The phenomena took place throughout the Western world from the 1960s into the 1970s.[1] Many of the changes in outlook developed into new codes of sexual behaviour, many of which have become mainstream.[2]

Sexual liberation included increased acceptance of sex outside of traditional heterosexual, monogamous relationships (primarily marriage).[3] Contraception and the pill, public nudity, the normalisation of homosexuality and alternative forms of sexuality, and the legalization of abortion all followed.[4][5]
