September is Sexual Health Awareness Month. For most people, sexual health awareness extends to the knowledge required to prevent unplanned pregnancies. However, it should, as a rule, include the knowledge that people need to make themselves feel pleasure and intimacy. 

The real definition of Sexual Awareness 

According to the American Sexual Health Association, sexual health must go beyond the information required to prevent unplanned pregnancies. It should expand its horizons to include the awareness that one must have to experience sexual pleasure and intimacy for oneself. Sexual Health awareness must also include activities and research that lets you become free enough to determine your version of sex, intimacy, and pleasure. You must be able to form your definitions of sex and how it relates to your body and mind. 

Sexual health is essential to your overall well-being, as are mental health and physical health. Educating yourself on your sexuality is one of the first steps to having satisfying, safe, and pleasurable sex. When it comes to self-care, you have to pull out all the stops to feel good. 

Questions you should consider 

Knowing about sexual health and understanding sexual wellness comes at a cost. For people who are suppressing and repressing their sexuality under the pressure of society and culture, asking these questions might be difficult. Hence, we are here to help you. The following questions will set you on the right path to exploring sexuality for yourself. Sexual awareness is a marathon, not a sprint. You have to be in it for the long run to feel wellness. Here are some helpful questions you can consider: 

  • What does safe sex look like for people from diverse backgrounds, having different bodies?
     
  • How can we ensure that we are taking the best care of ourselves while we’re having sex? 
     
  • How do we define, explore, and communicate our sexual needs and desires? 
     
  • Is it okay to explore our bodies for sexual pleasure?
  • How can self-awareness and sexual awareness increase the quality of my life in the long term? 

Exploring your sexuality responsibly 

Sexual awareness is multi-faceted in its approach to sexuality. When we talk about sexual awareness, it is not just limited to being aware of your own body and sexual preferences, but also about your partner’s. Whatever gender or sexual orientation you might have, it is very crucial for your overall well-being that you be able to embrace your sexuality, educate yourself on ways to have safer sex, and respect each other’s boundaries. 

Since sex is taboo in some way or the other in every culture, it is often the paradigm to stop talking about it and operate on hearsay. However, that approach towards something fundamentally important to our lives is careless at best, and irresponsible at worst. Although talking to medical professionals about sexuality might be daunting for many, you must remember that talking about it might give you insights that help you in the long run. When you’re embracing a part of yourself that is so crucial, you must never skimp out on the effort. Instead, you must make constant efforts to make sure you know everything about your sexuality. It is a continuous learning process. A commitment you must make. 

It is through the symbolism of Sexual Health Awareness month that we want to get this message across to billions of people who are stepping into the world of sexuality every single day. The message is simple. Sexuality is one of the most significant parts of our being, and taking good care of it is our responsibility.
