Let’s focus on ourselves
April 19, 2013
This year my column has revolved around the topic of sex and all things related, so I thought for the final edition I would focus on the complete opposite- not having sex.
In today’s society, sex isn’t a hush-hush topic anymore. Thanks to the media and other outlets, sex is a widely known act. With sex in movies, sex on the internet, sex in the headlines, and even sex on television, younger and younger are the generations who becoming curious. Don’t get me wrong, I think that sex education is a very important asset at a very young age, but Hollywood has come to portray it in a darker and dirtier fashion. What happened to the days where sex was a sacred act and the big screen always left more to be desired?
Sex doesn’t have to be a focus, not in the movies and not in your own life. Yes, it can feel good and yes, it can be a way to express your feelings. But it doesn’t have to be the only way. Maybe it’s time to take a step back from our sexualized culture and discover new things, whatever that may be.
With the end of the school year fast approaching, what better time than the present to focus on yourself? Now can be the time to “find yourself,” whether that be emotionally or physically and it doesn’t even have to involve sex. You can focus on your own body, your own goals, and your own thoughts. Become empowered. Maybe even cross something off your bucket list. Enjoy your summer and love your beach body, no matter the size or shape. Love you for you, because at the end of the day that is all that truly matters.
