This is my first blog post, and I am posting about some topics that are very passionate to me: sex positivity and the anti-pornography movement. I got inspired to post my own blog based on other feminists blogs I’ve read by men and women that speak words of wisdom on this topic. I’ve also used my own experiences with pornography and objectification to shape my views on this topic.
As an almost twenty-two year old woman in a serious relationship, I understand sex positivity very well. When shared with someone you love, sex is a beautiful thing that brings two people together. As a religious person, and I can respect people who aren’t, I also believe that love and sexuality are important parts of a Christian relationship.
I feel pornography is not part of being a sex positive. If you and your partner are okay with using pornography people likely won’t change your views on it. But in the case of many people, pornography is used not only behind the backs of one partner but done so knowing it hurts one’s partner. I believe as a culture we have to take a stand against this.
