I know there are people, who for one reason or another, struggle with having a happy sex life.
Perhaps we’ll hear some of their perspectives in the comments.
So open conversations can bring it back to normal really quickly.
In addition to your parents, I hope you will also ask other adults in your life (teachers, church leaders, aunts) for open conversations about sex.
Today my sister said “when I was in jr high I thought sex was __ and__ and then I figured out it was so much more”.
Also, you didn’t mention same sex attraction, so I’m going to assume you are talking about sex between women and men: 1) You can read all about sex, and have lots of conversations, and feel like an expert.
But until you’re actually having sex on a regular basis, a lot of what you learn or hear won’t really be helpful or make sense.
Unfortunately until today I thought that was the same definition of sex.
Before I go on I want to add that I have a normal family and very normal parents.
