Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby

“We are all born sexual creatures, thank God, but it’s a pity so many people despise and crush this natural gift.”
― Marilyn Monroe

I was thinking the same thing. In this world of hate, terror, prejudice, and homeless kittens, we all need a little happiness in our lives once in a while. We can’t control how other people behave and we can’t control what happens to us, but what we can control is our body and how we use it. We were given this body to take care of and use to its full potential, but when we shame the idea of sex and masturbation – something that feels so right that it must be wrong, and so good that it must be bad – it’s given a negative stigma that stuffs it under the same category as drugs and alcohol.

But why can’t we look at the positive aspects of sex? What about emotional intimacy and social interaction with another human being, learning more about yourself and your body’s capabilities, and scientifically making positive physiological changes in the body? It saddens me to hear stories of people who were beaten and shamed as a child for exploring their bodies, or middle-aged people who have never experienced an orgasm because their religion made them feel guilty for wanting to feel pleasure.

Sex should be enjoyable, lighthearted, natural, and consensual. By being open and honest about my personal experiences, I hope to spread the word that sex is nothing more than sex.

“The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live.”
