Sex. From the early days of the wise Salt n Pepa “Let’s talk about sex, baby. Let’s talk about you and me. Let’s talk about all the good things and the bad things that may be. Let’s talk about sex.”
As we know sex can be an uncomfortable subject to talk about but let’s face it sex is everywhere now a days but especially on TV. The reason I am bringing this up is there is new reality show on WE TV called Sex Box which first originated in the UK. The show will be airing in early 2015. So basically Sex Box is an extreme therapy reality concept that lets couples discuss their relationship issues with a panel of experts. This is how it works. You and your partner go into the sex box that is a camera-free, soundproof box on the show’s set. You and your partner do your thing and when you are finished you come out and discuss your feelings, thoughts, emotions to their panel of sex and relationship experts. Scientists and researchers cite that people are more trusting and open in the moments immediately after sex due to the body’s natural release of oxytocin a.k.a the “cuddle hormone”. WE TV obviously wants the couple to be as real as possible.
I know we discuss sex issues with close friends and family. It’s only natural. It can be something as simple as your mother or mother-in-law asking “when are the grandkids coming?” to your best friend telling you she had amazing sex last night. Just a passing comment, no heart to heart, hardcore conversation needs to happen. But sex is always around us. Plus isn’t it true that men think about sex every 12 seconds? Ok, maybe that is a little extreme but according to BBC.com the average man thought about sex around 19 times a day and woman thought about sex around 10 times a day.
Here is my question to my readers… would you ever consider seeing a professional about bedroom problems knowing it will help your relationship even though it is a touchy (no pun intended lol) subject? Would you consider asking for advice from a friend or family member? What would you tell your friends/family if they asked you for advice?
This is what I would say and I am keeping this G-rated considering my mother and boyfriend’s mother read my posts. I would say do whatever you got to do to ensure both of you are happy. If that means taking it up a notch in the bedroom but wearing sexy things, role playing, to seeing a professional then no harm in trying. No one should be embarrassed by this subject because couples go through “dry spells” or have issues all the time. No relationship is perfect!
I found some pretty interesting fun facts about sex on http://www.sheknows.com! Some of them are pretty awesome! Here are a few of my favorite facts:
The vibrator was originally invented in the 19th century as a way to reduce “hysteria.” That seems a little extreme. However, we do not recommend testing that theory by taking away a woman’s vibrator to see if she goes into a hysterical fit. That’s just dangerous.
Forget post-coital cuddling! According to a poll by consumer electronics site Retrevo.com, 36 percent of people under the age of 35 check their Facebook and Twitter accounts after a roll in the hay. Hopefully, they are not posting any pictures!
Orgasms are good for your health! They can lower a woman’s risk of heart disease, stroke, breast cancer and even depression. So have sex and get happy!
