Today we’re going to talk about something that many of us may feel uncomfortable discussing – female pleasure.
Why is it that we shy away from talking about such a natural and normal topic as sex? Why do we feel so much shame or embarrassment around the subject, and how can we begin to change that?
I interviewed relationship and sex expert, Alyssa DiLorenzo, to get the conversation going. The more we talk about it, the less awkward the topic has to feel.
(Listen to the episode here).
We had an open and honest conversation about women’s pleasure and how we can have empowered conversations that lead to greater intimacy with our partners and a better understanding of our own sexual health.
We talk vibrators, lady parts, and much more!
Why The Taboo?
The truth is, there are many reasons why sex is considered a taboo subject for many people. It could be due to cultural or religious beliefs that have been passed down through generations, or even societal norms that dictate what is considered “appropriate” or “proper” to talk about in public.
Whatever the reason, it’s time to shed light on all aspects of pleasure and take control of our own sexual health. Speaking about sex and having sex is important for mental, sexual, and physical health. We need to prioritize our pleasure and drop the shame that may be holding us back from experiencing the fullness of intimacy.
Communication = Better Intimacy
Having conversations about sex and pleasure can also lead to a deeper relationship with a partner. When we communicate our needs and desires openly and honestly, we build a stronger connection with our loved ones. It’s important to remember that pleasure is not just about physical satisfaction but also about emotional and spiritual connection.
One of the keys to feeling comfortable with sex is knowing your own anatomy. As women, it’s crucial that we understand our bodies and what feels good to us. This knowledge can help us communicate our needs to our partners and experience more pleasure in our sexual encounters.
Our partners are not mind readers. Help your partners “win” by discovering what you like, and what you don’t, and then bravely communicating your needs.
Unfortunately, many of us were not raised in an environment where talking about sex was considered normal or acceptable. This is especially true for those of us who grew up in religious households. However, it’s never too late to start having these conversations and learning more about our own sexual health.
If you’re looking for more resources on this topic, I highly recommend checking out Alisa DiLorenzo’s podcast, One Extraordinary Marriage Show. Alisa is a fantastic resource for those looking to improve their sexual health and have empowered conversations about pleasure.
In conclusion, it’s time to break the taboo surrounding female pleasure and prioritize our sexual health. By having open and honest conversations about sex and pleasure, we can deepen our relationships with our partners and experience the fullness of intimacy. Remember, there’s no shame in prioritizing our own pleasure and taking control of our sexual health. So, let’s drop the shame and start having these important conversations today.
