Most of our blogs are meant to help gain a better understanding of the different sex products on the market, ways to enhance your sexual experience, and creative approaches increase your excitement, but you might find this blog a little different. While our brand voice is normally fun and lighthearted, we want to take a position of gravity and sincerity.
Communication is something we always emphasize in our blogs. This blog is dedicated to the idea of sex positivity, and the principles that support it are communication and understanding.
The philosophy of Like A Kitten is to promote mainstream masturbation. Meaning sex (with yourself and/or a partner) should never be seen in a negative light. It is something that is healthy and should be openly discussed. Enter the concept of being sex-positive. Let’s take a closer look at what it means to be sex positive.
Sex-positive can be interpreted in a variety of ways, but at its most basic level, it refers to having a positive attitude toward sex and being at ease with your sexual identity. All consenting sexual behavior is healthy and joyful at its core. The sex-positive movement is inclusive and non-discriminatory. In the end, it is centered around celebrating sexual differences (including but not limited to LBGTQ+, anal sex, one-night stands, and BDSM) based solely on consent.
Society’s portrayal of sexuality as forbidden, harmful, and indecent sparked the sex positivity movement. Rather, this way of life encourages the belief that sex is natural. When consent, trust, and communication are part of the process, it is not wrong or shameful.
Anyone can be sex-positive. It is about valuing an open relationship with your sexuality as well as others. As cliche as it may sound, the world would be a better place if more people were sex-positive.
Bottom line, we don’t care what it is called or the exact definition. At Like A Kitten we believe that healthy sex is the key to living a happy life. While we promote experimenting with your partner, trying new positions, buying different toys, we can’t stress enough how important it is to communicate. Never do something that makes you uncomfortable.
Living a sex-positive life looks different to everyone. Where should you start? That’s up to you, see a therapist, read a book, research online, and/or engage in conversations with those close to you. Welcome to your new life where sex positivity will allow you to be more open to your own (and other’s) sexual desires and experiences.
