Sex Is Fundamental

Exactly this.

Love Letters to a Unicorn

American’s are weird about sex. Very weird. We use sex to sell everything in America from hamburgers to perfume to children’s toys. We sexualize our daughters from day one. We make sex a staple of comedy, tragedy and it is mostly what we watch on the Internet. We pursue it, we capture data on it, we demand it so much we are legalizing rape and upskirt photos.

However, if someone actually dares to embrace their sexuality, be positive about their sexuality, unashamedly like sex we reduce them to sluts, ‘ho’s, and horn-dogs.

Almost every 35+ married woman I know has an attitude that is basically “sex is okay…I mean I like sex and all…but I don’t really care…” Now I understand how incredibly important the communication of sex (love how the author talks of this) is. It IS its own form of communication and sharing and meaning, and essential to a healthy relationship (barring some specific medical situation, etc) for the WHOLE of the relationship. Thanks for this, Sam. It was really insightful.

    Wow thanks for sharing. It’s so important, but people rarely see it that way. I have seen it so much in my own marriage.
