Sex Isn't Dirty
So, in regards to something that is essential to life itself, why is it viewed as something dirty and disgusting? Can it be that way? Absolutely, depending on how open-minded you may or may not be. But, the act itself is as natural as anything on this planet and it's time to stop demonizing it.
I grew up in a traditional Baptist church. A lot of churches teach sex as if it's a bad thing. That it's something that makes you unclean. Depending on your religion, that could be true in some cases, but they don't differentiate the cases. You're brought up to think that it's simply a bad thing. To top it off, not all churches explain that sex can be about more than just having babies. Sex can be something spouses can enjoy together. You can still enjoy sex and "keep it holy" if you read more than you listen. That usually gets lost somewhere in the "teachings."
So many women get brought up to think that their private parts are always off limits. If you have sex with a lot of guys then you're a slut. If I had a daughter then I'd probably teach her the same thing, too. #Hypocrite LOL! However, in the spirit of fairness I'll be open-minded on this one, too.
A woman who enjoys sex is not a slut. Now, that doesn't mean go out and do Bangfest 2014, but it does mean that it's okay if you have those urges. Be responsible and use common sense and if it does happen, then it just happens. Don't let a man tell you that if he sleeps with 50 women he's a "playa," but if you sleep with 50 men you're a "ho."
Some people are afraid to let their "freak flag fly" even when they've locked down that special someone. Why? Why would you commit the rest of your life with someone you can't be yourself around?
Look, if people remained virgins until marriage then these topics wouldn't be much of an issue. That's not the case. A very small group of people in the U.S. make it to marriage as a virgin couple. Regardless if you're a first-timer or a veteran, you should still be able to be yourself in the bedroom with your spouse. Don't be afraid to try new things. If you've always had an open line of communication with your spouse then it shouldn't take them by surprise anyway. Communication is the key to a happy marriage in and out of the bedroom.
Like everything else in the world, sex can be fun if you have the right approach. You can enjoy yourself and still wake up in the morning feeling respected if you make the right decisions. It's more than just 50 pumps and a walk of shame if you choose it to be. Don't let society dictate what's right for you. If you want to wait until marriage then I'll encourage you to do so. If you want to "get it in" before marriage then I'll encourage you to use protection and make sure the person you're with is responsible and respects you.
Either way sex isn't dirty unless you're in the mud. It's a beautiful thing.
