Sometimes, when I think back and remember sex, I think middle school.
We were viewing penises and vaginas and not even knowing what we really were looking at in books, handouts, and projector slides.
We didn’t know the power we had, back then. Many people still lack the capacity to understand that power, today.
We didn’t know what sensual was, much less the meaning of intimacy. We did not know the stronghold women would have over a man when they allowed them inside of them.
We did not know the strength it would take to remove a strong connection after becoming physically entwined with someone through intercourse.
The second word in the definition of sexual intercourse itself is contact. Contact. What a word. We don’t have to be connected to have contact.
Some say we should aspire to be connected before having contact. It can be said to strengthen the power of the contact. It can be said to strengthen everything, connection.
Sometimes we will have contact when we aren’t fully invested. Other times, we may be overly invested.
We may experience contact that is not consensual, that’s another story for another day.
There is power in sex. There is power before and after sex. We are the power, and the moment we remember that imagine the heights we can achieve! You don’t know to pleasure until you remove the pressure and remember the power.
