Bridging the Gap Between Body Positivity and Sexual Health

Body positivity; at first glance, it might not seem to have anything to do with sexual health, but in reality, it does. Our views and beliefs about our bodies can impact our actions and can even impair our judgment, especially when it comes to sex. For this reason, we at Can we Talk? decided to include information on body positivity and self-esteem in conjunction with sexual health to help both men and women, young and old, to make more informed decisions.

Body positivity is all about accepting your body for what it is and not looking to others for validation or to determine your worth. Now that’s not to say that we can’t or shouldn’t desire to change our bodies; however, it’s important to accept it and take healthy steps to change it if we so choose. I’ve struggled with my weight and body image most of my life and it influenced my relationship with and views on sex. It wasn’t until I decided to accept my body for what it was did I begin to take ownership and no longer tolerate abuse/exploitation from myself and others. This has been a long, hard journey for me and I still have a long road ahead of me, but as they say “the journey of a thousand miles starts with one step”. At the end of the day, you alone have to live in your body, so no matter what anyone may say, think, or feel about your body, ultimately, you need to be at peace with it. With each step you take towards accepting yourself and your body, you get closer and closer to that peace and there is so much freedom in accepting who you are and making no excuses for it.

I will be sharing my personal story and my experiences on the road to body positivity and self-acceptance, and we welcome you to share yours as well. Hopefully, we will all learn to love and respect ourselves and each other a little more as we begin a dialogue on this important topic. Feel free to visit our website for more information and to share your thoughts and personal stories. http://canwetalkqa.weebly.com

    I struggled with my personal body image for a long time, even though I was very comfortable with who I was psychologically and mentally. When I finally came to terms with my external self, accepted it, and loved myself, it felt really great. It's hard--if not impossible--to believe other people think us worthy of love until we believe it ourselves. It sounds cliche, but is so true!

      That's definitely true Olivia. We have to first love ourselves before we can truly accept the love of others, and when we do, it's a beautiful feeling. Thanks for your comment!
