If you haven’t noticed, we have been speaking a great deal about sexual liberty lately. Though sexual liberty has a lot to do with the self, it’s also a state of understanding others. It’s a state of existence, not just something you have or do not have. Being liberated means that you encourage and allow others to be liberated, as well.
Sexual liberty also stretches far past just the bedroom. It’s a way of life! As humans, it is important that we commit to seeking to understand and support one another to best of our abilities.
Recently, we came across a passage which spoke of sexual liberty and what exactly it means in such a powerful, important way. We’d be silly not to share! Below is an explanation by Hemang Chawla which we are just so in love with. So, in the midst of all the talk of sexual liberation, we hope this gives you clarity and inspiration like it did for us!
Sexual liberty has to do with being willing to respect the different sexual behaviors of people. Whether someone is heterosexual, bisexual or homosexual, monogamous or polyamorous, has high sex drive, is demisexual, or is asexual, whether someone is comfortable with casual sexual relationships (one night stands, friends with benefits), or is comfortable with sexual relationships only while being in love, or sexual relationships only after long-term commitment, or even sexual relations only after marriage, for one’s own self.
This is to say that sexually liberal people respect other people’s sexual choices while being free to make their own. This includes the choice of wanting a partner that shares same sexual values or one who places same significance on sexual compatibility in a relationship, high or low.
This stems from understanding that certain sexual behaviors are biological and others are merely lifestyle choices.
Being sexually liberal does not mean to assert that one sort of sexual choice/behavior is better than others for everyone. (For example, a polyamorous person looking down upon someone who is monogamous is not sexually liberal; a person in a casual sexual relationship looking down on someone who wants the commitment before having sex is not liberal; the same is true in opposite cases too).
We vow to never stop the conversation, to always strive to learn more, and to support each and every one of you in your own liberation. Because at the end of the day, this is what freedom is all about.
