Who are you comfortable talking about sex with?

Postby Sam W » Thu Aug 28, 2014 9:06 am

Now, this does not mean only discussing your personal sex life or sexual feelings. It can mean simply discussing issues around the politics of sex, or stuff like periods, STIs, and pregnancy in the abstract.

So who, if anyone, do you feel comfortable talking about those topics with? Friends? Family? Romantic or sexual partners only? And why do you feel comfortable talking with them about it?

As for feelings & personal life I'll take to a friend or trusted adult who is not my mother because I don't really want to share that with her. When it comes to the clinical side I'll talk to my doctor , or consult other person who can provide me with medically accurate info.

I'm comfortable discussing sex with everyone who's not my family. It's not even that it feels icky, it's just that we have wildly different opinions on politics and choice and expression and it is not worth it to go through that conflict with them. Everyone else, people who generally feel much less entitled to my acquiescence, has been much more reasonable.

Yeah I think for me it's also non-parents.

I'm comfortable with partners and close friends. I do find that acquaintances outside of that can be more judgemental (or I might fear that they are before finding out otherwise) which does feel less comfortable.

I'm usually comfortable with my mom, but sometimes not even her. I usually have to go to sites like this to ask my questions. ;)
