How do you define “Healthy Sex?”

The question “what is healthy sex?” and “what is sexually healthy for me?”  are important questions to ask yourself.  Whether you are seeking to move into your sexual potential or you are recovering from sexual addiction, you owe it to yourself to answer these questions.

Below are some guideline questions I have constructed to help you get your process going.  Take some time to focus and meditate on these questions.  When you’re ready, sit down with a pad of paper and pen and write out your questions long-hand.  You may be surprised at what you learn about yourself!

1. What were the messages you got from your family about sex and sexuality?

2. Were you taught/trained to get your needs met using your sexuality? What might some other ways look like?

4.  Were you taught to deny your sexuality?

3. What do you consider to be “normal” sexuality?

4. How does the culture at large inform you about sex and sexuality?

5. How does your smaller/immediate culture inform you about sex and sexuality?

6. What is your definition of sexuality? How does it differ from the above?
