Sex and sleep
It is fun; it is complicating; it is devastating; it is boring; it is outrageous; it is raunchy; it is scary; it is so many things.
Some people do not like to talk about it and some people love to talk about it. Some send sex texts! Even the Oxford Dictionary recognises the word “sexting”: “send (someone) sexually explicit photographs or messages via mobile phone”
Sex therapists are around – do they have great sex?
And sex has several names, sexual intercourse, making love – and others that are not appropriate to mention here!
People are complex anyway and then you throw in the interaction process – arghhhhh. Some people have the instant connection and problems later, some have other problems, but zero sex problems.
Some of the experts say it is about loving and accepting yourself before anything can be happening successfully with others. There is probably some truth in that.
These days, unfortunately pre-marital sex appears to be on the increase. I only say unfortunately because I think some things are meant for later in life and this is probably one of them.
People use their sexual power in the wrong ways and this often destroys relationships and trust and causes a multitude of problems. Infidelity (sleeping around) always has and always will be happening. There are people with morals and people without. There are people who make mistakes and can be trusted again. There are people who cannot be true to themselves.
Pass on the right morals to your children. Try to set a good example and allow them to respect the other sex and appreciate the special bond two people can have. Even if you live in a single parent household, and you are dating, you can educate your children and expose them to responsible behaviours and conversations.
Allow children to be comfortable to ask questions and try and not make sex a taboo topic, but a very natural one and maybe we will have less complex behaviours in the future.
