Healthy Enough for Sex?

Thursday, January 21, 2016

At the end of a recent commercial, the voice implores, “Ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough to have sex.” Okay? But how would my doctor know THAT without really knowing me? Is YOUR heart healthy enough to have sex? Here are some questions to consider. Do I have an abiding love for this person? Are our values aligned for the experience we are about to share? Do I consider sex to be sacred and transcendent? Am I seeking “love making” more than “pleasure taking”? And speaking of pleasure, is this encounter more for me to give than to get? Will mutual respect be the cornerstone of the experience? Will we have playful and creative sharing that leaves an enduring atmosphere of connection and joy? So, how about you? Is your heart ready? Only you can know for sure.
