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 - 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 [...]

Sexbit - Purpose

You must acknowledge in your heart of hearts that people are supposed to fuck. It is our main purpose in life. All those other activities – playing the trumpet, vacuuming carpets, reading mystery novels, eating chocolate mousse – are just ways of passing time until you can fuck again. Cynthia Heimel   I know how [...]

Sexbit - Freedom

Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputation and social standing, never can bring about a reform.

Sexbit - A Fantasy

According to Tracey Cox in her book Hot Sex: How to Do It, one of men’s top ten fantasies is to watch a woman masturbate (with her knowledge or on the sly). Her top ten list of female fantasies does not include this particular activity for women which surprises me a bit, but that could just [...]
