Shame is the silent saboteur of sexual satisfaction. Society dictates a sexual box we must fit into. None of us fit perfectly. When we have desires that are outside of the box, we feel shame. Communicating with anyone, even a loving partner, when you have shame about the topic is extremely difficult. And when sex is the topic, vulnerability and fear of rejection are factors as well. I think it all starts with the box! Just imagine what our world would be like if all expressions of consensual sex that did not harm anyone were accepted and celebrated instead of labeled and judged.

This is a very interesting question, with complex multilayered answer. I suppose it actually depends on age, gender and even sexual orientation. But one thing that cut across all the that, is the fact that sex is a personal and intimate thing. Its not exactly something you want to discuss with your work colleagues on a Monday morning or any day of the week for that matter. But I think single men, tend to talk about sex, with their friends a lot more than married men do.

Family, religion, and school conspire to make sex a stigmatized, hush-hush topic as we’re growing up. We’re supposed to be embarrassed to talk about it, especially my older age group. I find as a senior sex educator that when I discuss sex in a manner that conveys, “this is normal, this is marvelous, let’s talk out loud about it,” people respond first with surprise, then with eagerness to share their stories and questions. In other words, we can change our society’s aversion to talking about sex by simply talking about it!

There are many taboo topics for the people of different cultures and religions. Sex is one of them and probably is on top of the list. The answer is very simple – it is very sensitive topic. At the same time we all understand that you can’t ignore sex because it is everywhere: on TV, in magazines, online etc.  Revealing your sexual wants and desires to your partner can be scary. But sex is something that comes naturally so you don’t need to feel awkwardly.
