Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby

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.

I am currently putting my energy into myself while studying for the bar exam, and completing my first book. My favorite thing to write about is current events, my life or what is going on around me. Writing affects my mental health greatly as it is the best outlet! Writing puts me in a good zen-like mood. Harness empowers me as a woman because it is a no judgement, free flowing publishing platform just for women. It's a home, in a sense that you can feel comfortable as well as go to Instagram and find inspirational and self-care tips.
