Sex Positivity

What is sex positivity?

Sex positivity is the idea that sex and sexual pleasure is different for everyone, and that’s ok. Sex positivity is about being non-judgmental, honest, and informed.

Sex must be a good thing if we talk about it so much, right? Well, yes and no. Sex can be personal, scary, pleasurable, confusing, and fun.

No matter if, when, or how you choose to have sex, the most important part of being sex positive is knowing yourself and respecting other people’s process in understanding themselves.
