Sex in Broad Daylight
If the title of this blog post solicits feelings of extreme discomfort, you are certainly not alone. In fact, over 40 percent of the population would rather have sex in complete darkness than have sex with the lights on in the room. Yes, that many! And I can only imagine how much of that percentage would drop if the stat was based on sex in broad daylight vs. the fake “mood lighting” we can create indoors. Because sunshine, while amazing and beautiful, is not exactly the most flattering or forgiving lighting option.
That said, I think sunlight is something we should celebrate in many ways! I mean, we literally just celebrated Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. On June 21st, people from all over the world honored Summer Solstice, expressing gratitude for gifts of harvest, bounty, abundance, and enlightenment. In fact, this time of year can offer intense spiritual significance for some people. For others, it can be an awakening or a time to honor the light within themselves. But if we are going to honor the light within ourselves, shouldn’t we be allowed appreciate light during our intimate encounters, too?
Perhaps one of the most liberating feelings ever is to have sex in broad daylight. Obviously I’m not talking about boning your partner in a public park (I don’t want to promote any impromptu arrests), but I’m talking about daytime sex either outside privately or even inside at 1 p.m. with sun beaming through the windows. There is something equally enlightening about being unapologetically yourself in broad daylight, displaying every nook,cranny, hair, lump, bump, roll, stretch mark, cellulite patch, and imperfection. When you can let go of all your imperfections and insecurities and just BE in the light....that’s when INCREDIBLE sex truly begins.
I know, it’s easier said than done! But for me, these three perks vastly outweigh any fear.
Perk #1: Amazing visual stimulation. When you can actually see your partner’s naked body, imperfections and all, sex feels so much more raw and real.
Perk #2: Increased vulnerability. As scary as the word “vulnerable” can be for some, it is what leads to trust. And when you can trust your sexual partner, your world opens up to much better sex.
Perk #3: Fewer time limitations on sex. If we are waiting to have sex until the sun goes down, we are limiting our options. Having sex during the day allows us extra time to enjoy ourselves. Plus, it’s usually during the daylight hours that we have the most energy. Let’s capitalize on that!
I invite you to see the light this summer, friends. Actually, I dare you to! And not just any light...the real deal. The sun! Celebrate Summer Solstice and the entire summer season by surrendering your fears and stepping out into the light...naked. I promise you, it will be life-changing!
