Sex is a deeply intimate subject. There are various perspectives on the subject.

Some people see it as pleasurable, passionate, blissful, fun, a stress buster, and a source of relaxation and enjoyment. Another school of thought think sex is sacred. Most people’s upbringing predisposes them to think sex is hallowed, sacred and somewhat shameful.

In fact, most people didn’t even get to call their genitals by its actual names especially in public, so as not to be desecrated. Private parts were given nicknames for appropriateness. The last group of people see sex as a sin and downright evil.

The truth about sex is that sex is a beautiful thing. It is a healthy and natural activity.  It is something most people enjoy and find meaning engaging in. Just because parents and guardians want their wards to avoid mistakes and poor choices in this regard doesn’t mean sex should be ill spoken of. Sex is a beautiful and healthy activity.

Quit seeing sex only as evil and a sin. Well! It’s not evil. You should be proud of your sexuality; embrace your sensuality and do not be ashamed when you feel sexual & sensual.

For clarification, sex is not just vaginal intercourse. Sex is pretty much anything that feels sexual. Sexual activity is any activity that is considered sexual by the people who are involved. It can include the following activities and more:


  • Vaginal sex
  • Hugging
  • Hissing
  • Any sexual touching
  • Oral sex
  • Exposing your body to another person
  • Taking sexual pictures of another person
  • Showing somebody pornographic images
  • And more!
