Why my children will be raised in a sex positive household

The term sex positive is defined as having a healthy attitude and relationship with and towards sex. I find 
it very natural to talk about all topics regarding sex, relationships and 'taboo' topics, which I mainly put 
down to being raised in a sex positive household. I have a very close relationship with my mom and can 
talk openly about anything, and it's always been that way. When I was younger if I ever had a question or 
query about anything from sex, relationships, periods etc. I never felt embarrassed to go and talk to her.

People often think that have that the term 'sex positive' means teaching your children about the birds and 
the bees and bombarding them with information when they are too young and not ready. Everything that 
my children will know will be age appropriate. Sex education starts when they are 10/11 in schools and I 
want them to be prepared for that rather than feel nervous or embarrassed about the situation. 

Quite a few members of my family are gay, so growing up I was surrounded by different types of 
relationships and family dynamics, which I love. I always knew that men could love men and women 
could love women, it wasn't only men and women that could be together. I didn't have to learn about this 
as it was already my life and I was surrounded by that. The LGBTQ+ world has always been in my life 
and I'm now proud to say that I'm apart of that community too. 

I'm going to raise my children in a sex positive household so they can be educated about important topics 
such as sex, relationships and families. I'm not going to tell my children that sex is only to make babies, 
because it's not. I'm going to teach my children about sex in the LGBTQ+ community, just like I would 
with a heterosexual relationship. I'm going to teach my children what's right and wrong and be thorough 
on consent and protection. I'm going to be age appropriate and open with my children.



  1. This is brilliant and more parents need to be thinking this way. Will make for a better generation xx

  2. This is great that you're thinking about this for when you do have children.

    1. Children need to be educated on sex and relationships and it's so important x

  4. This is excellent. I completely agree with you. My mum was really open with sex and relationships conversations with us when we were growing up and we're all super close and share everything. We were all good kids so she didn't have too much to worry about. I'm defo going to take a leaf out of hers and your book when it's my go to have a family!


    1. Just so important to be honest and open with your children x

  5. Yes yes and yes! I was always so embarrassed to talk to my mum about sex and I think it's because my parents were never open about it! So, from my experience I believe that it's so so important to talk about with your kids x

    1. Sex is such a natural thing that nobody should ever feel embarrassed to talk about it, that's why I'm so open with it x

  6. We have always been open when talking about things relating to sex and relationships in our house, I think it is better and doesn't become something that children find embarrassing or abnormal. We have always kept it age appropriate, but now my girls talk to me about absolutely anything and they aren't shy or embarrassed at all.

    1. It's so important and helps children to become educated with things for when they get older. Helping with things like teen pregnancy x

  7. Yes so important. I started my period when I was 10 and I'm expecting my daughter too as well but she already knows a lot about them as I never hide it away.
