It has come to my attention that there will soon be a (and when there's one, there's often more) well-meaning exhibit at a Connecticut university where students will be showing creative works such as art and poetry that deal with sexual harassment and assault.
What does it mean to be sex positive?
It is a term that has been buzzing around for a bit. Sex positivity is about having and embracing a comprehensive understanding of human sexuality. This includes consent, practicing safer sex, getting tested, and not judging oneself or others for what they may be into or their past experiences.
How powerful it can be when popular musicians release songs that have to do with sexuality. Such a relatable topic, yet sometimes it is musicians who get the ball rolling for people to learn and have more conversations about it. Music like this can be comforting, inspirational, and can even strike social justice movements.
Here is a list – just a taste – of some songs that relate to a more positive mindset of sexuality. Enjoy.
