Conscious Sexual Self

Connection Requires Consciousness

I will have an ecstatic year


Some many resolutions, so few that enhance our sexuality. Let’s change that this year, shall we? Here are a few ideas…


I resolve:


To welcome my own desires, sexual thoughts and fantasies


To treat each sexual experience as a something new with unknown potential


To get deeply curious about myself


To say yes with more enthusiasm


To say no with more confidence


To have sexual pleasure, because I deserve it and am worthy of it (even on “fat days”)


To get more comfortable talking about sex and what I want


To try something new without feeling like I have to “get it right” the first time


To find a way to channel my sexual energy into _________


To schedule time for sexual pleasure because it is a priority for me


To speak up when I hear someone say something sexually derogatory, discriminatory or damaging


To release old stories or fears that no longer serve me


To learn something new about my partner


To bring more ____(love, risk, reverence, play, sassiness)___to my sexual play


Did any of these inspire you? Create your own that feels right for you. Just don’t forget to include your sexual self in that list of resolutions. Happy, healthy sexuality is a part of a vibrant life. Give it the attention it deserves.

Journaling Prompt : When do you feel attractive?

Think for a bit about times in recent memory when you felt attractive or sexy. What were you doing? What was your body doing or feeling? Sometimes we imagine we will feel more attractive when we are dressed up, going out, being seen. But think for yourself, maybe you remember feeling vibrant and attractice when you are home alone dancing to music, sitting on your porch eating lunch in the sun, or at work giving a presentation. What are you wearing when you feel attractive? Who are you with? What people invite you to feel sexy and appealing? Why do you open up this part of yourself when you are with them? How do you see yourself through their eyes? Write about some of these times, recall the details, remind yourself what was going on for you in those moments. And then answer thsi question - what is it in those times that allows you to open to your own beauty or sex appeal or confidance?

As a New Year's resolution, you may decide to consciously create more times like that in your days and weeks. How can you build more space for yourself to feel attractive. It is not about waiting until you have lost weight or developed your pecs or erased your wrinkles. It is about knowing how to bring sexiness and attraction out in yourself and being your best, most confidant self now.
