I was told once (okay, maybe twice) that I think too much during sex. Guilty. I’ve caught myself a time or two drifting off into my academic mind, “bookmarking” a certain feeling or thinking of ways to do something better or more effectively J This, while good, should NOT be happening during sex. I mean, how can you truly be in tune with the sexual experience if you’re thinking about other things? Normally when people are “thinking” during sex, it’s typically something surrounding body image or sexual performance. Me? I’m thinking about research topics, blog posts, questions I could ask to engage people and start discussions. What can I say, I love sex. I love everything about it- the great stuff, the terrible stuff, the confusing stuff, the myths, the mysteries, all of it. I read (A LOT), research, talk to people, ask questions, answer questions, and listen…all to make myself a better professional (my friends call me the “sex lady”) and really, a better person. It’s a good feeling to know what you are supposed to do with your life. I’m here to ultimately educate, encourage and empower people.
This is not to say that I don’t enjoy sex or that I’m not paying attention. Because that’s certainly NOT true. This is also no excuse for the occasional thought that drifts outside the sexual experience I’m in. I certainly “preach” letting go and being immersed in every experience one has. It can be tough for a mile a minute mind like mine to slow down sometimes. Just know that I’m passionate about this, and that I take it seriously.
Sexy people rock.
