Get Inspired : S-E-X
28. April 2012
Sex. Yes, I said it. S-E-X. It’s the three letter word that makes most people cringe. But isn’t it time that we, as adults, learn about sex? Shouldn’t we set our own boundaries of what we want to do and don’t want to do with our significant others? I firmly believe that we shouldn’t wait until we are in a serious relationship to figure out the details on who we are as relational and sexual beings. Yes, I just said sexual beings. I can already see my friends shaking their heads in horror.
Here’s the thing - we need to stop being afraid to talk about relationships and sex. People have sex. It happens. Some people choose to have a lot of sex while others choose to wait. Even so, it is up to us to become educated on who we are and what our body does.
On that note, I was inspired this week by the wonderful and extremely intelligent Laci Green. She posts weekly videos on all things sex education-related. I spent the majority of yesterday perusing through her videos, and I feel inspired to get talking about the hard issues (er, no pun intended), and get educated about my life when it comes to the relationships that matter.
YouTube + Tumblr + Twitter
Start small, whether it be through asking questions or watching YouTube videos, and get educated about your sex life. Lay down your boundaries about sex now, whether you are having it or not, so that you and your significant other (whether it be now or in the future), can have a strong, healthy relationship.
What about you? Do you talk about sex to your friends (or family)? When did you become educated about your body, or do you still feel in the dark? Let me know in the comments below!
