We all think about it at some point; most of us are doing it. You can’t turn on the TV without seeing it. Sex sells! This goes back to the 1800s when a tobacco company used a naked woman on the cover of their packaging. Grey’s Anatomy is infamous for all the characters having sex with each other. In 1991 Hip Hop trio Salt-n-Pepa had a hit with their song Let’s Talk about Sex. Music is inundated with it.
Sex should be something that is shared between people who love each other. Some use sex to get what they want. Using it as a weapon; withholding it until they get their way or as some sort of punishment for not getting whatever it was they wanted. Partners may cheat as a way of “getting back” at their partner. There are many professions where sex in some form or another is the means to paying bills.
Sex can be a stress reliever. It releases endorphins that elevate mood. It has been shown to lower blood pressure, reduces your risk of heart attack, possibly decreases chances of prostate cancer, improves sleep and improves women’s bladder control. Research has even shown that sexually active people take fewer sick days.
Some use sex to dominate. If this is consensual, then … have fun! Any other kind of dominance during sex is wrong, should not be tolerated and should be reported. NO means NO! According to https://endsexualviolencect.org “One in four women and one in six men will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime.” If you or someone you know needs help contact https://www.rainn.org.
