Simply hearing the word sex gets many people going. For others, sex is dark, forbidden, marked by taboo, something that is usually associated with “sin,” and therefore should make one feel guilty.

Let's talk frankly and openly about sex. Talking about sex is a healthy way for people to recognize and accept their sexuality for what it is. Sex is part of who we are as human beings. It is clean, beautiful, and helps us feel good about who we are.

Feel free to share even those experiences that you have not dared share with anyone else because you felt it inappropriate, or that no one else had experienced or felt it before.

Feel free to write your experiences the way you wish. You can use your own ideas, or use the questions below as a guide. In the event you use a question, you should only answer that question. You may also answer several questions in separate entries and allow us to choose the best one for the book. Whatever your preference, only a maximum of 2,000 characters will be published.
