Natalie, you are authentic. You are real. You have the power to change perception, and to empower others to do the same. Because over the last year and a half, your journey of self-discovery wouldn’t mean anything if you didn’t courageously show the world these vulnerable parts of you. And while scary, they don’t make you any different. All it means is that you are comfortable and in love with who you are. You are ready to have meaningful conversations and eliminate the f*cking bullshit (#UncorkedConversations). So, here it goes…

Ladies, it's time to embrace your sexuality. Not feel ashamed about it.

Sure, talking about sexuality can be uncomfortable, but it’s a conversation worth having. Women’s sexual health, like men’s, is important to overall emotional and physical well-being. Research confirms that sex is linked to happiness. And speaking up about sex can also reduce common issues, such as: adultery, boredom and divorce. So why is it that being a highly sexual woman and talking about it still seems to be frowned upon. Wait a minute. Women need sex like men? They sure do. At least this woman right here. 

The truth about being a sexual woman: 

Your confidence is affected when you are turned down for sex. Well, because sex puts you in a vulnerable position. You are opening yourself up to someone in a special way. For you, being rejected for sex sucks. But in today’s society, a man asking for sex is perfectly acceptable, but when a woman wants to stay healthy between the sheets and have sex all the time, the dynamics change.

Why? Because society (and men) are quick to slut-shame this kind of normal thinking and behavior. The truth is that it’s tough out there for a sexual woman. You feel super sexy and empowered when you are sexually satisfied. But on the other hand, your sexuality can feel overwhelming with feelings of shame and guilt.

Your inner circle has your back, but how will the world perceive this kind of sexual talk. Will it affect their views of you? Like, your constant sexual energy and need for release. Are you the only woman who schedules masturbation time in her "me time calendar"? Because sexual pleasure fuels your creativity and makes you extremely energetic, but when you don’t get a release, it can make you really cranky. And no one likes a Debbie Downer…

As a sexual woman, you secretly want to find like-minded women that are comfortable with their sexuality. You want a “girl gang” who’s up to hit up a sex shop and attend sexual health talks instead of practicing self-care through yoga and meditation. Because, that’s sexual healing for you.

So, what’s the bottom line here? Sexual women do exist and that doesn’t make them any different or unworthy of acceptance and belonging –respect! Gents, sexual talk is important and crucial to women’s wellness. And just like it’s okay for you to talk about sex and want it, women are allowed to talk about it and want it too without feeling shame.

Now it's time to open up the conversation. I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section. And if you want to join in on the conversation online, use hashtag #uncorkedconversations.

Cheers to fullfilling and safe sex!
