Sex is everyone’s favorite taboo. We do it, pursue it, and think about it, and it’s an essential aspect of our physical, mental, and emotional health. But we have a hard time talking about it, even with our doctor. To make matters worse, our doctors are usually only qualified to tell us about the basic biology and mechanics of sex. But our sex lives extend beyond the bedroom and the actual act of sex. What does it mean to be sexually healthy outside the bedroom? How can we think and talk about sex in a healthy way? How can we contend with our sexual feelings when we’re not having sex, and what’s the best way to interact with everyone else’s sexualities?
