To be perfectly honest in high school I was a prude (dictionary.com - A person who is or claims to be easily shocked by matters relating to sex or nudity.) Within my group of friends I was the last to have sex, and they always poked fun at me because of it. But I was raised on the mindset that I should wait until I'm married to have sex, and can only have sex with one person in my lifetime, and I obviously cannot talk to anyone about sex. But thankfully my mindset has changed over time. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not someone who sleeps around, but I am someone who believes that it is healthy to have sex as long as you're smart about it.
This is why I thought Rachel Rabbit White's: 8 Ways To Be Positive You're Sex Positive was a perfect example of why sex is ok. Right off the bat she says, "Having sex is healthy, but so is NOT HAVING SEX!!!" Sex positivity has long been about "owning our desires" but it should also be about owning our lack of desires too. And for me at least I wanted to wait until I was married or to know that I was with someone who wasn't going to break my heart after I gave them everything.
