National Sexual Freedom Day
I could talk about these topics ad nauseam, but instead I will focus on one major point. That is I believe that one of the fundamental human rights to sexual freedom includes quality comprehensive sex education.
We have a right to learn accurate, useful information about our bodies, our sexuality, the sexualities of others, how to protect ourselves, and how to give and receive pleasure. So many people do not even have the basic tools to navigate their own sexuality let alone someone else’s.
I’ve met women who don’t know where their clits are or who think they pee out of their vagina. There are so many women who have not yet achieved orgasm and so many men who feel it is their sole responsibility to give women orgasms with their dicks. And way too many people who think that the only way sex can happen is if a penis enters a vagina or maybe an ass.
I want to see abstinence only education stop being funded. It is a heterosexist, slut-shaming, untruthful “education.” It is time that the US recognized the fact that people are sexual beings and that sexuality can be a very healthy thing if treated as such. Repressing people and teaching them lies does not keep teens or adults from having sex; it makes them unprepared for when they start.
