It’s that time of the year again- when love is in the air (or the hate for love is in the air) We here at Taboo Tabou like to embrace Valentines Day as a great time of the year to take care of your own personal sexual health, or if you are in a relationship, the sexual health of that relationship. Sex takes work. Say it with us. SEX. TAKES. WORK. Unlike what Cosmo and other magazines want us to think one day you don’t just turn into a magical sex machine that is able to learn all the skills it takes to have great orgasms or give your partner the orgasm of their dream. There is a lot our society, media, and medical fields have taught us wrong about sex.
With that said (sorry for the preaching) we took a moment to talk to our favorite Sex Therapist and educator, Rena, McDaniel, on some tips for both those of us in relationships as well as single. We love Rena because she focuses her practice on creating conversation and opportunities for personal exploration that expand folk’s capacity for pleasure, audacity, and embodying their most authentic self. She is a therapist at IntraSpectrum Counseling as well as an awesome Sexual Educator around the city. She’s also leading a workshop on Wednesday Funerary 10th Called Expanding Pleasure: How One Simple Equation can Change your Sex Life.
