At the launch of our book Coming Together at the Avid Reader Bookshop in Brisbane this week we invited attendees to anonymously write down what word came to mind when we asked them about what it was that sex meant to them. We then asked them to place their answers into our collection box.
The attendees came from a wide variety of backgrounds and this some of what some they came up with.
What sex means to me:
How men think
So painful it hurts
Don’t even know how to spell it?
It’s obvious from these answers that sex, or making love, offers something pretty amazing- from the depths of despair to the heights of fulfilment.
What word comes to mind when you think of sex, of making love?
How do you feel about your answer?
Have you, or could you share what you’ve found with your partner and have a conversation around it?
Would you like more of what you’ve found?
Or would you like to create more of what you’re longing for?
Recognising what sex or making love means to you is the first step.
The second is asking yourself what is it that you can do to create more of what you’re looking for.
As is identifying what you’re doing that is getting in the way of this.
It’s much more empowering to look at your own behaviour rather than to focus on what your partner is not doing, as it puts you in a position of choice rather than limitation.
Making new, positive choices will help inspire your partner into their own.
If you would like to learn more about how to create the highs rather than the lows, or to expand your highs even further think about joining us for our upcoming weekend workshop Feb 22-24 Sexuality of the Heart.
