Although attitudes toward sex have changed drastically in the last few decades, some old-school ideas take a long time to go away. Slut-shaming, abstinence-only sex education, and street harassment are still (unfortunately) alive and well. But there are many easy ways to be more sex positive that allow you to cultivate a healthier relationship with your own sexuality, as well as the spectrum of sexual practices in general.
So being sex positive does not mean having sex all the time — you can be asexual and sex positive. It just means you have a positive attitude about sex, accept your own identity, and understand that others will have different attitudes and likes than you do (and that’s OK). It rejects the notion that sexuality should only be for reproductive purposes, or that sexuality is only acceptable under a narrow range of circumstances. Basically, the sex positive movement embraces any expression of sexuality that is healthy and consensual. In other words, if it makes you (and your partner if you have one) happy and doesn’t harm anyone, go for it! This “you do you” approach encourages everyone to explore and define their sexuality in ways that work for them. And that’s an idea pretty much everyone can embrace.
