We all have our own stories of life. One of these is the story of your Sexuality…
Sexuality is about having an awareness of your sexual self;
Take a moment to consider the following question:
How comfortable are you in talking about your sexuality?
If you’re like most people, it’s unlikely that this will be in your comfort zone!
Regardless of your sexual orientation, and whether or not you are in a relationship, being curious about your sexuality, the way you think and feel sexually, and the expression of your sexualness, is healthy!
Think about all the potential possibilities…
The key to your sexuality is recognising that your sexualness does matter, and that you honour your own sexual story and continue your journey of personal sexual growth.
In my work with many of my clients, my focus in this regard is to
‘Enhance your Sexual Self-Esteem’
I encourage you to think and talk about what you need to enhance your sexuality and intimacy......and remember to value your unique perceptions, thoughts / memories / feelings / attitudes / values / learning / knowing…Awareness, or lack of awareness of these, will influence how you view sex and sexuality…
but also remember that you can change each of these - so be open to new learning and ideas to enhance your sexuality. Sometimes we tend to forget that even as adults…we can still learn!
Talking about sex can be difficult, especially if you have never seriously broached the subject…
For those un-partnered, it’s still important to talk about sex, in a way that is enlightening, supportive and at times challenging…sometimes our friends, no matter how well meaning.
While working with couples, I frequently find that when couples don’t talk about sex, it is misinterpreted as a lack of interest or even rejection! It’s such a common story...and often its months or years before either partner has the courage to start the conversation...BUT it’s never too late!!
This is where talking with a Sexologist can help.
If you want to enhance your individual sexual self-esteem, or your intimacy in your relationship, it’s vital to enter into a discussion about sexuality.
As an individual, or as a couple, consider the following questions to get a better understanding of your sexual story:
