These 5 words could be impacting your thoughts on sex

I don’t know if it’s a sexologist thing or just something I get hung up on, but I have become one of those people who analyse the language we use. I believe that we can change the way we and others view certain topics by changing the language we use surrounding them. When it comes to sex, there are many words that can be seen as not sex positive or even confusing. Let’s even take the word sex for example. We use it a lot, but it’s a word we can’t even define. What is sex? Is it penis in a vagina or is it fingers in a vagina or a penis in an anus? There are multiple different meanings for one word, and universally we cannot even agree on what it is.

If only more 13 year olds could think like her, actually if more people in general could think like her, the world would be a better place.   She might not have a doctorate in Human Sexuality, the right to vote, drive, drink, or has even finished school but this 13 year old girl has a valid point and a maturity I would expect to find or would hope to find in an adult.  You don’t have to be a sexologist to educate people, just an open mind and the courage to voice your opinion!  …
