Just as sex, gender and sexuality are subjective, based on our own experiences and beliefs, so is the term sex positive. What does it mean to you?July 12, 2023 at 4:08 pm #34417KimParticipant
Sex positivity to me is a lack of judgement about what people choose to do with their own bodies and minds. As long as everyone involved (whether that number of people is 1 or 100) is a consenting adult, I believe if you are sex positive you shouldn’t be worried about the activities other people engage in. I also believe you should work to be less judgemental about the activities you yourself choose to engage in, as it helps to better your mental health and any sexual relationships you may have. It is also an understanding that during play or fantasizing that an individual may act out scenarios that they would not enjoy in real life, and just because they play act or fantasize about these things, it does not necessarily mean anything about their actual beliefs.July 23, 2023 at 2:19 pm #34554Jenn WParticipant
Sex Positivity, to me, means the willingness and ability to accept others enjoyment, expression and/or pursuit of sexual pleasure with other consenting adults. The more open we are to being compassionate and nonjudgmental to others, will ultimately help us explore more about ourselves and what we may find fulfilling. To receive respect ourselves, we must respect the choices of other consenting adults and what they choose to do with their own bodies.August 1, 2023 at 7:52 pm #34569

Sex Positivity to me means a complete lack of judgement about bodies, sexual partners, activities, etc. It helps create a safer space for people to explore and learn about themselves. Sex Positivity accepts that sexuality is an essential part of our lives and doesn’t try to hide it away as taboo or naughty.August 24, 2023 at 4:03 pm #34657
I love that Theo!
I would add, to the definitions here, that it is a journey- not just your current state of understanding, or a set of values, but being mindful that you continue to learn, explore and consider other perspectives with a willingness to be a bit outside of your comfort zone in order to learn
