In the ever-evolving landscape of human relationships, our perception of sex and intimacy has undergone a transformative journey. The pendulum has swung from the era of fear and secrecy, directly into the spotlight of performance, and somehow missed the crucial intermediary element: pleasure. In 2023, it's time to rediscover the importance of pleasure in our sexual and intimate experiences.
Finding Pleasure Amidst Fear and Performance
The Fear Factor
For decades, societies were gripped by fear when it came to sex and intimacy. Stigmas and taboos surrounding these topics cast a shadow that prevented open discussions. Such fear often led to a lack of education, misinformation, and the proliferation of shame around these natural aspects of human life.
The Era of Performance
With the advent of the internet and the prevalence of social media, society shifted towards an era of performance. People felt the pressure to conform to certain standards and expectations, often driven by unrealistic portrayals in media and the pursuit of perfection. The emphasis on performance resulted in a disconnect between individuals, as the authentic experience of pleasure took a backseat.
