I spend a fair bit of time reading articles on the net related to various topics, not least of all, sexuality and conscious sex. I’ve been reading stuff by Steve Pavlina for a while and I really dig his take on many things, and when I found this article (actually titled “Conscious Sexuality”) I had to have a read. I really loved this chapter in particular on the prerequisites of sex. It gets to the point in a simple way, like much of his other writing.

What prerequisites do we actually need to engage in sex? A willing partner is really all that’s required. If you have a willing partner, you can have sex.

Serious rocket science here, eh?

Just to be clear, let’s assume your body and your partner’s body are physically capable of having sex as well.

All other rules, constraints, and requirements arise from social conditioning and are therefore unnecessary.

You don’t need to be married or in a committed relationship.

You don’t need to be dating.

You don’t need to be in love.

You don’t need an opposite-sex partner.

You don’t need to be exclusive with your partner.

Your partner doesn’t need to be exclusive with you.

You don’t need to be programmed in multiple techniques.

You don’t even need to have met the other person first.

All you need is consent
