Sex positivity is a mindset that can transform your entire outlook on life, love, and everything in between. Being sex positive means embracing the full spectrum of human sexuality without judgment or shame. So, how can you unleash your inner sex-positive warrior? Here are some cheeky tips to get you started. 

Be Proud. Same or other-sex attracted, monogaous or polyamorous, fem, masc, top, bottom, side, or something in between – ditch the guilt and shame. Your desires are valid, and as long as everything is consensual, age appropriate and species appropriate (to quote Andrew Huberman) there’s no need to feel ashamed. 

Education. Read books, listen to podcasts, and have open conversations about sex. The more you know, the more empowered you’ll feel to make informed decisions about your own body and pleasure. 

Communicate. Whether you’re in a long-term relationship or a casual fling, talking about your desires and boundaries is key. Communication – as it turns out – can lead to some seriously steamy encounters. 

Celebrate diversity. Embrace the fact that everyone’s journey with sex and sexuality is unique. Trans, poz, cis, intersex, straight, gay, bisexual, pansexual, living with a disability – however you identify, you are worthy of respect. 

It’s also important to challenge societal norms and expectations. Who says you have to fit into a neat little box when it comes to your sexual identity. Embrace your individuality and reject labels that don’t resonate with you. It can be incredibly empowering. 

When it comes to sex, consent is non-negotiable. Always prioritize enthusiastic and ongoing consent in all your sexual encounters. Remember, consent is not just about saying “yes”; it’s about ensuring that all parties involved are comfortable and enthusiastic about what’s happening. If there is substance use, keep a friend close by, to help remember what your goals are. 

Lastly, practice self-love. Embrace your body, explore what feels good, and treat yourself to some solo pleasure. After all, being sex positive starts with loving yourself first. 

So, there you have it. Embrace your inner cheek and dive into the world of sex positivity. 

Your body, your rules.
