Travel & Sexuality Series: Let’s Talk About Sex

“Sexuality is one of the ways that we become enlightened, actually, because it leads us to self-knowledge.”

Alice Walker

In a world with so many sex symbols, sex songs, sex education, sex/gender differences… what makes someone sexy? What gives Janet Jackson, Beyonce, or even Madonna sex appeal to so many? But on the other hand what makes them repulsive to others… What I have realized in my travel is that… sexuality is dramatically different everywhere I go.

In fact, in my travels I have come across different ways of dressing, communication and relationship values. It started off to be rather astonishing and at first it blew my mind. What I held near and dear as the expectations of all just wasn’t the same.

In one case, covering my knees was absolutely gorgeous and sexy in one culture, while showing them was considered risqué and a little “slutty”.

(Lesson to learn: ALWAYS do a background check on your up coming adventures and know the cultural dress code and values of your surrounding).

No one culture is right or wrong about sexuality and how they perceive it but I would like us to be open to everyone’s differences and learn something from it all.

 

Inspiration for the Series:

I was asked to launch a documentary focused on Adina Howard and her rise to fame through her openness about sexuality from a dear friend of mine. It then sparked the idea to really start a series of past travels and upcoming travels regarding sexuality in all dimensions.

The first write-up will be in May with the Adina Howard Documentary focused on sexuality here in the US, but then I will take you around the world with me (some flashbacks on my experiences) and some new ones, as we uncover sexuality and kind of open our mind and hearts to just what sexuality is.

 

Topics

To discuss things consistently in each blog post, I have decided to work on specific topics listed below.

  1. Sex Appeal/Beauty
  2. Gender Roles
  3. Sexual Orientation
  4. Marriage

While these are my own personal views on sexuality that I have experienced, please feel to share your views on the topic respectfully.
