How you experience and express your sexual feelings is referred to as sexuality. Your sexuality is what you love sexually, who you love, where you loved to be touched, and how your body responds to sex.
Exploring your sexuality tells you more about your sexual preference. Whether you have a partner or not, it is important that at a certain point you explore your sexuality so that you can get the best of your sex life and enjoy it with someone who understands your body.
Whether you have a partner or not, here are five tips for exploring your sexuality.
Accept the normal
The first tip to exploring your sexuality is to believe and accept that sex is normal. It is normal to think about sex, to be curious about it. If you are ashamed or afraid of talking about sex, as much as you can trace the root cause.
A lot of people that are ashamed of talking about sex have the shame deep-rooted in some childhood memories that came from a movie, or environment. When you trace where the shame is coming from, deal with it. Deal with that memory that fear, and accept that sex is normal. It is only when you have done this that you can begin your journey of exploring your sexuality. Sex is normal, the cravings are normal, and there is nothing abnormal about your desire to explore your sexuality.
Settle your curiosity
There is nothing wrong with being curious about your sexuality. What kind of sex do you like, who you would like to have sex with, what areas of your body give you pleasure, etc. This curiosity is the fuel for exploring your sexuality so settle it. Satisfy it. “Curiosity kills the cat” – well it’s a good thing you are not a cat, right?
You can explore what you like with your partner or with yourself. If you are not sure what you like or who you would like to have sex with, that’s also okay. Be willing to try everything when you have the chance until your curiosity is fully satisfied.
Surround yourself with people that encourage your exploration
There would always be people that do not understand your quest to explore your sexuality. They would judge, criticize and accuse you. You do not need that kind of negative energy. Surround yourself with people that understand and encourage your exploration. There are many communities you can identify with that would cheer you on your exploration journey. Get to know the communities available in your environment as they would be a great source of help to you. No matter your interest there is a community and related stores who can help you explore your interests. If you’re into BDSM there are several active communities, the same with furries. It’s even possible to find stores which sell dragon dildos, so thanks to the internet you can explore with ease.
Do not be quick to label yourself
One reason a lot of people explore their sexuality is to define who they are. “Am I gay, bi, poly?” Don’t be quick to put a label on yourself, otherwise, you would spend a long time pressuring yourself to fit into the label. Give yourself the freedom to explore beyond any label.
When you are sure, and you know who you are, what you want sexually, who you want, embrace your identity. Accepting who you do not mean coming out to anyone – if you are coming out to anyone in this instance, it is yourself. Of course, you are free to come out to your loved ones if you want to, but you must embrace your own identity and love yourself.
Sex is beautiful and enjoyed best when you know your sexuality and what you like sexually. Explore and embrace your sexuality and enjoy your sex life.
