Dr. Kelly Neff teaches human s*xuality and says that it has helped her to understand a few things about s*x.
1. Even if you are just looking for a casual hook up with someone, always make sure that you are still selective about your choice. S*x is a very personal and emotional thing, even if you are just having a one night stand. There are a lot of things that can come out of a casual hook up such as an STD, pregnancy, or a relationship that is less than stellar. Be careful about who you are choosing to have s*x with and set your standards high.
2. There is nothing “normal” in s*x. Everyone does things differently and what is normal for one person may be taboo for another. Everyone has different likes and dislikes so it is impossible to say what is abnormal with human s*xuality.
3. There is still a lot of uncharted territory that we have yet to explore when it comes to s*x. There are new breakthroughs every day that deal with human s*xuality, it is just a matter of research. For example, in the 70s being gay meant that you had a mental illness. We have obviously changed our view on that and now are researching to see if there is a biological tie to homos*xuality.
4. Every person has body image issues whether they will admit it or not. Everyone has at least one little insecurity that makes them vulnerable. The media is partly to blame for this as we are told what is s*xy and what is not in Hollywood’s eyes and then people feel they cannot measure up.
5. In other parts of the world women have very few rights. In the US one out of every six women has been [email protected] at some point in her life. Worldwide that number is one out of three women. There are countries such as Saudi Arabia where women are not allowed to drive. In Egypt 91% of women have to go through gen!tal mutilation. Every four minutes in South Africa a woman is [email protected] There are many groups to fight these inequalities but we still have a long way to go.
