"I'm sex positive." I've been seeing this phrase more and more in newspaper and magazine articles. But, what exactly does it mean?
It means that a person - male, female, trans, or whatever - can have a positive attitude toward sex in general. That's a good thing, right? We should all have a positive attitude about it.
But, as Allie Long, who blogs about sex, says in this article at Medium, it is not an open invitation for a dick date. She, of course, places some stereotypes on men: We're "insatiable" and open to getting our rocks off anywhere, anytime, with anyone.
Men's brains are wired differently. That wiring puts sex on the front burner for a couple of decades as nature entices the spreading our gene pool as far and wide as possible. That's just the honest-to-God truth.
Of course, things are much different today than a few-hundred-thousand years ago. In general terms, men need to learn that. One of the options to take care of the beast lurking in the bulge is to masturbate.
It's an option we discover before we're old enough to take responsibility for raising a family. It's an option we use even within relationships. It's an option that should be on the table without ridicule.
Tomorrow: An option more and more men are seeking out.
