Last week I brought up the two topics no one wants to talk about. Money and sex. I talked about money last week so why not talk about sex this week. I’m totally fascinated by the fact that we all got to this planet in basically the same way. S-E-X. It’s universal. But talking about it is anything but universal. I think it’s important that you talk about it with yourself, whether you have a partner or not.
Sex can have so many various meanings to different people. It’s only important that you know what it means for you. And is your sensual side being nurtured?
Maybe you think of sex as “the act” itself. Intercourse. Or the foreplay.
Or it could be just holding hands. Or kissing.
Or wearing clothing that brushes against your skin and makes you feel fabulous.
Maybe it’s a manicure, pedicure, or a massage.
It could be your favorite lotion, a hot bath, looking into a lover’s eyes, or looking at your own eyes in the mirror, that makes you feel sensual.
Heck, as a child, I l-o-v-e-d getting checked for lice. When the teacher would take a pencil slowly separating hair strands on my head to look for those little bugs, I could sit there all day it felt so good.
That may sound a little weird, I know, but we are physical creatures. We enjoy and crave physical pleasure. It’s totally natural and normal.
We all have different desires and needs.
So how can you nurture your sensual side? What’s missing? What can you add? Do you even need a partner? Can you do it for yourself?
If you aren’t nurturing that part of you, or not enough, now is the time to start.
