It has recently come up several times that I am, apparently, more open to talking about sex than people expect. I know that people aren’t assuming I am a prude, so what is it? Is it simply that a woman being comfortable with her sexuality and enjoying it is still considered taboo?
Back when Kinsey was doing all his interviews (accuracy aside folks), the published work dealing with male sexuality was quite a hit. However, when he turned around to deal with female sexuality it just wasn’t acceptable. It is ok if Eric talks about how he did his woman last night, but talk about his mom, sister, or daughter enjoying their sex lives too? No way.
Is it purely that the feminist movements over the years have focused on trying to not be an object of sexual desire? Were women too focused on being able to work alongside men in the job place, that playing alongside men in the bedroom was left behind?
I like being fun in the bedroom—or anywhere else I might be playing at the time—and I want to be good. I want to be able to talk to my friends about what makes someone good, as well as fun new things to try. So why is it that bringing up various positions or toys always gets a response like “I didn’t know girls talked about this stuff.”
Well yes, ladies and gentlemen, I talk about sex. Will you join me? It is really kind of fun.
