Make Sex Normal

How often do you think about sex? The best answer –as often as possible. This is the message behind a new website called Make Sex Normal. Make Sex Normal was created by Debby Herbenick PhD a sex educator at the Kinsey Institute. When sex is made normal it implies that sex is totally devoid of any preconceived taboos.  When one talks comfortably about sex, there are major benefits in their relationships, health, and desire.

The Make Sex Normal site lets people submit photos and stories about how they are making sex a part of their everyday lives.

Some ways to Make Sex Normal:

  1. Make a list of all the sexual things you’re curious about, interested in trying, or already know that you like.
  2. Read all about sex- Lit/Erotica is a great way to get both women and men thinking about sex. It can help with fantasies and in turn, help with sexual desire.
  3. Shop Sexier- Visit a sex shop where you can explore new sex toys and learn from sex educators about how to have better sex.
