What Does Sex Positive Mean?
You’ve probably heard the phrase “sex positive” and maybe you know what it means. For a long time I thought it meant, “Please, go ahead and have sex with whomever you want, whenever you want, with whatever tools-costumes-toys you want, where ever you want and I’ll pretend to be fine with that.”
That’s not really what it means – or not quite, anyway. It actually means you see sexuality as a positive, natural and healthy part of life and humanness, in all its forms. For me “sex positive” means I don’t care what you do sexually as long as it’s consenting and does not involve children, animals or “breathplay.”
What Is Sex Positive Parenting?
Sex positive parenting is what I teach — that sexuality is a natural, normal and healthy part of childhood, adolescence and adulthood — and it’s the parents’ responsibility to teach this to their children.
