Taking your power back from years of societal conditioning can be extremely difficult. We’re often told that in order to be happy, we have to live life a certain way, however, this is far from the case. Embracing your sexuality is one of the first ways to take your power back from all the narratives and life events that may try to take it away, and if you’ve been on the cusp of breaking free from the old you and wanting to experience a whole new life- You’ve come to the right place, as your sexuality is the first place to start.
Do things that make you feel good
Doing things that make you feel good is an absolute must within every aspect of your life. It’s not always just about the pleasure, but about doing things that make you feel like your most powerful self in the process. Once you can get down to the nitty-gritty of what makes you feel most confident within the scope of love and within your sexuality, you can begin to take your power back from society in a huge way.
Embrace your sensitivities
Embracing your sexuality also means embracing your sensitive sides, behaviors, and aspects of yourself. Your sensitive and nurturing nature isn’t something to hide, nor to be ashamed of. When it comes to embracing your sexuality, it’s important to give yourself the space to be as compassionate and loving as you possibly can, and this can involve being vulnerable within the process as well.
Look at yourself naked and embrace all of your insecurities
Giving a good glance at the mirror when you’re naked is a great way to tell yourself how beautiful you are, while also giving yourself the chance to embrace self-love. Our daily routines include getting dressed where we most of the time may not have enough time to look at ourselves and our bodies. A part of embracing your sexuality is by taking a long glance in the mirror and appreciating every aspect of yourself, both good and bad.
Get comfortable with the idea of being single, even if you’re not
One of the biggest misconceptions society has projected onto us is that we have to be in a relationship in order to be happy. This limiting narrative has resulted in us getting into trouble when it comes to attracting toxic people and or situations in our lives that may not be serving us in the best way. By getting comfortable with being single, to its fullest extent, you can give yourself the time and space you need to really fill your own cup, rather than expecting someone else to do it for you.
Touch and be touched
Our sensual natures are a great way for us to be open to receiving love and when it comes to also giving it. The more you expose yourself to physical touch the more comfortable we become with it. Without embracing our sensual side, we can easily become frigid and mentally be closed off to the physical admiration of others.
Cut down your time with social media and eliminate yourself from what you think is “normal”
There are so many fake ideas of what sexuality should be and what it should look like. The movies we watch growing up and the relationships of others on social media can be a huge indicator of how we expect our own relationships to be. Our sexuality can be just as important mentally if not physically, so it’s vital to start to break free of old ways of societal conditioning and to open yourself up to the many possibilities that are in front of you.
Learn more about sex positivity
Sex positivity is something that should be celebrated rather than feared. Oftentimes society can push forth the narrative of what it means to be a woman. These narratives can often push forth stereotypes that often depict women as not having the same sexual fantasies or desires as men do, which is far from the case. Being sex-positive means that you’re open being open about sex, and you’re open to the conversations surrounding sex as a result.

Practicing this exercise is a good way to become more conscious of your wishes and innermost desires when you’re in the bedroom.
