As you explore sex positivity, it's important to know that there is no particular path you have to take. Sex positivity isn’t just about free love, it’s the societal drive to develop further away from an oppressive and antiquated outlook on sex.
Shame comes from the outside in. And although there's no way to become impermeable to what's around you, there are ways to build yourself up.
While the drive to conform is extremely powerful, it’s crucial to overcome this tendency and embrace one’s true feelings.
Talk about what you like and dislike, what you fear, how you feel and any questions you might have. Our culture is simultaneously hyper sexual and sex-negative and sexual messages are therefore highly contradictory. By discussing your concerns, uncertainties, vulnerabilities and desires more openly with trusted friends or partners, you can address some of these contradictions and embrace a life in which sex plays an overwhelmingly positive role.
Beyond having a confidant or partner to talk to, it's important to find likeminded people who can support you on your journey to sex positivity in general.
We live in a largely sex-negative environment — one in which gender, age, ability, appearance, social status, income, and a variety of other factors affect our sexual freedoms; many people, however, are sex positive."Look for them.
If you do your research, chances are, the internet will be a major jumping-off-point for your sex-positive identity. Digital spaces allow young people to collaborate and learn from one another’s lived experiences.
There are also many sites that offer evidence-based information that young people can consume and discuss together and with educators, parents, nurses, etc. ... Increased access to accurate information can lead to more realistic expectations with regards to sex and relationships.
Know that enjoying sex doesn't have to involve other people at all. While you're living in an environment that doesn't match with your perspective on sex, feel free to take the time to know yourself first.
Explore your own body. You have access to so much information about what turns you on and what turns you off and what kinds of sensations your body enjoys. Take the time to explore it!
