Sex & Sexuality Workshop – A Need
Every man and women has colorful dreams. However many do not believe that along with food, clothing and shelter, sex is also a basic need of an individual. Why do we consider sex with such a prohibition? No one has given any solution for this question. Most of the time, under the banner of culture, or holiness and under the concept of sanity and insanity, an attempt to suppress this basic need is made.
Sexuality means something obscene, unholy, dirty, full of hatred is what we are introduced with. Due to this, the basic need is somewhere suppressed. This results in abnormal relationships, extra martial affairs, sexual assaults, rape, sex before marriage, rise in watching porn films, increase in experiencing bad touch, different sex scandals etc. Many such incidents regularly take place in the society and TV channels, society, career and education opportunities given to women are held responsible for it. But given a deep thought, it is but obvious to conclude that are these factors alone and wholly responsible for it?
The underlying truth behind this is that we basically have a corrupted approach to sexuality. Since childhood, we are given threatening lessons to keep sexuality away. Especially at the time of marriage, these lessons prose a greater impact. According to the saying, one learns swimming when one falls in water; similarly, one automatically enters his / her sexual life on getting married.
Almost all couples go through this phase and their parents add up to their confusion. Now as per the above saying, if each individual is capable of being a good swimmer, then why has the divorce rate gone up or why do extra martial affairs take place?
Does this mean that an individual who has had multiple divorces (and obviously multiple marriages too) has understood and experiences better sex life? What do the sexual assaults that come up in the light symbolize? From these, entire how many of us truly know about healthy sex? Many would say, they know everything about sex and that they would be able to answer any question related to it. Right!
Everywhere and everyone is aware of sex to some extent by birth and later some knowledge is acquired through experience. But how many of them are aware that in sex, along with physical actions, emotions are also important? Now research states that sexual emotions for a man are different than the sexual emotions of a woman.
Then how can every man and woman study sex with an intention to develop a healthy outlook? We generally hear obscene, vulgar and filthy gossips related to sex at hangout places, offices and parties. Nothing from a study point of view is heard. Almost every comment is
based on the sexuality or genitalia of man & /or woman or their sexual acts. We enjoy it with a taste. But we will be able to experience unalloyed happiness in it, only when we develop a healthy attitude towards sex. What is healthy attitude towards sex? It is possible to change the corrupted attitude towards sex, get accurate, complete & scientific information about it & experience contented sex without hatred, abomination, and guilt & live life free of stress. However, if married couples are questioned about their sexual life, they reply as too
good or not at all good. But what is exactly good or bad? What is sex? With whom should we have sex? When? How should it be done? Most importantly, what is the significance of sex or sexuality in our life, so that we know why should we have sex? It is extremely necessary to know this. Basically how many of us agree that we always have a feeling of sex? How many of us accept our sexuality? Being a woman, what are my sexual needs, and being a man, what are my sexual needs? Being a man / woman, how do I outflow my sexual needs? It is necessary to find solutions to all these questions.
Disha Psychological Counseling Centre, Pune has critically & studiously thought about it and planned a 3 weeks workshop on sex & sexuality. The workshop does not handle anything personal, but provides scientific & emotional information in a interactive form and conduct open and healthy discussions. The workshop is for men & women in the age group of 20 to 50 years and couples can also participate in it.
It may open the doors of your life…!!!
