9 Things I Wish I Had Learned In Sex Ed

What might a sexologist wish she learned about sex and sexuality growing up?

6. Sexuality education has very little to do with the sexual act, but is actually a lifelong process of acquiring information and forming attitudes, beliefs, and values of one's sexuality. It encompasses sexual development, sexual and reproductive health, interpersonal relationships, affection, intimacy, body image, and gender roles.

7. Our desire for sex is natural, but the act of sex itself is learned. Like much of everything we know, we acquire the knowledge, practice through trial and error, and perfect it so that it becomes a skill which we 'own.' Hence, the phrase: 'sexual skill.' Sex is a skill. You may still benefit from attending sexual workshops when you grow up.

 

8. Though it can be for some people, sex is not just a physical act. Sex is usually a physical, emotional, mental, and even spiritual act. Your intention has everything to do with what sex is like for you. 9 Sex Positions That Enhance Emotional Intimacy

9. Your skin is your biggest sex organ, and your brain is your most powerful sex organ. Use both, and let go of any guilt! Enjoy your body, enjoy being alive...and breathe! Give yourself permission to use your sexual imagination. Your sexual fantasies, desires, and dreams are valuable and integral parts of your sexuality. 3 Reasons Why Reality Is Better Than Fantasy
