Let’s Talk About Sex; Openly, Honestly, and Among Ourselves

Let’s Talk About Sex; Openly, Honestly, and Among Ourselves

It’s hard to believe that we once lived in a world where discussing sexuality was taboo. The act was once referred to as the “original sin”, and was spoken about in whispers and behind closed doors. While a few still cling to these puritanical sensibilities, much of the world has come to embrace sexuality as a natural part of being human. However, it seems that having an open and honest discussion among others, and most importantly, ourselves, is still a difficulty for some. 

The fact that you or your partner might find it somewhat difficult to bring the topic up in the conversation has little to do with either of your shortcomings. The truth is, you’re both the products of preconditioning. Undoing this stigma and normalizing the topic in a casual conversation might be difficult for some, but clinical studies have shown it to be very beneficial. 

No Gods, No Masters

You and your partner have something special. And like any partnership, communication is an important aspect to maintain. Meeting one another halfway and talking about what you like, don’t like, and how and if you want to take the experience to a new level are all important. A relationship is always a two-way street, and if one feels uncomfortable talking about or doing anything, respecting their wishes should always come first. You and your partner are a democracy, not a dictatorship. 

Starting and maintaining a healthy discourse might be the best aphrodisiac you and the one you love ever try. 

Some Stigmas Last and Getting Help isn’t Weakness

While the stigma that comes with discussing sex openly has dissipated over time, the same can’t be said about mental health. Aside from the stigmatization of both, they also have another correlation with one another. Just as studies have found a link between healthy sex life and well-balanced brain chemistry, the opposite is very true for mental health and weakened libido. It should be stressed that mental health is a legitimate medical issue, and seeking help isn’t a sign of weakness, but self-preservation. Depression and anxiety can both diminish a person’s sex drive. A weakened libido or unwillingness to perform might also be the result of past traumatic experiences. Talking about these problems with a therapist or a couple’s counselor can underneath these issues and find ways to help alleviate them.
