Are people still having Sex nowadays? Remarked Barbara Kessling, in analyzing aspects of the American sexuality. I believe that it might be employed in an overall sexual analysis. The human race have been affected never the less by social-political and economical transformations, hence a great many people complain about the lack of time to enjoy life in detriment of the increasingly work pressure.
What is more, such readjustment in the contextual definition of masculinity and the AIDS pandemic along with other STDs, and therefore new models of relationships amongst others. When it comes to Sex we concede that there may have been changes to the rules.
With the Sexual Revolution a radical alteration in the male role has taken place. Such transformations have affected the work environment as well as in bed, in which case owing to the social-political and economical equivalence conquered by women. The same happened to sexuality. At which point men and women began to explore further their sexuality. Which means talking about Sex isn’t taboo any longer. Myths and prejudices were toppled in the attempt to further comprehend and exercise sexuality. The sexual behavior shifted from conservative to liberal. In as far as men started to concern about pleasure, mainly about the female orgasm.
In the advent of the AIDS crisis and other STDs, came along the fear of acquiring such diseases that cast a dark cloud over the freedom of expressing sexuality. The spreading of such appalls have contributed to a change in perception. Instead of seeking sexual pleasure solely, people are also looking for satisfaction in their relationships. Specialists, by and large, believe that as long as there’s no foreseeable cure, such a perception is likely to remain for time being.
Technology has substantially contributed to the appearance of new sexual standards. The Internet turned out to be means of bridging over. People began to create virtual bonds. Who hasn’t heard of someone whose relationship got started via the Internet? What about virtual Sex to begin with? There are pornography sites and those promoting blind dates, being all a matter of personal preference. Does anybody remember, not so long ago, the so-called German cannibal, who after meeting a host on the Internet ends up eating his guest alive on request?
Back to Sex, at these days and age every individual is responsible to one’s own pleasure. Don’t try to offload your responsibility on others. Besides your professional success and immediate satisfaction, aim for your personal gratification, your Sex life inclusive. Take your time. In short, whenever in doubt or in need of relevant information, alongside Internet surfing and literature seek out professional help. We will be there for you.
