Sex Ed

I am a bit of a sex geek. I always have been and it’s what led me to write about sexuality for adults or as I like to call my articles, essays and tips: Seskuality: Smart Sex Ed for Adults.

When I was young my favourite book was about where we come from (mine was in French and had a comparison of human conception with that of birds – wacky!). As I got older I became obsessed with those you will be a woman soon and how a boy becomes a man pamphlets that feminine hygiene products companies made for health class (ours were so dated – it was 1982 and they suggested pads with belts!). Later I was captivated by the original version of The Teenage Body Book: A New Edition for a New Generation and then as a young adult it was The Joy of Sex: The Ultimate Revised Edition and Our Bodies, Ourselves. Every phase was about devouring all this fascinating information.

I am of the opinion that sexuality is part of a life-long process. There is always something you can learn even if you are an adult and have ‘settled down’. With each phase of life our bodies change and so do our needs and desires (as does what others need and desire of us). Our sexual lives are a part of this evolution and asking questions and educating ourselves are key to having a satisfying sex life. We need to keep learning!

Sexbit - Touch

To lovers touch is a metamorphosis. All the parts of their bodies seem to change, and seem to become something different and better. John Cheever (1912 – 1982) Oh, how this is ever true. Touch can be electric and transformative. If you have chemistry that is.

Sexbit - In Time for Speedo Season

Leg hair is manly, chest hair is manly, but manliness can apparently only be expressed on one side of the body, because according to my sources, ass hair and back hair are unacceptable. Natalie Krinsky I agree with the sarcasm of this quote, not its face value.

Sexbit - Attraction

I have to find a girl attractive or it’s like trying to start a car without an ignition key. Jonathan Aitken (1910-1985) I’d like to think this would be an obvious statement, that attraction is a necessary part of sex, but sometimes there are other motivations that go beyond the physical, beyond attraction. I suppose [...]
