We are a society that is crazy (both meanings) about sex!  Here are some sources of information on safer sex, and on opening different aspects of your sexuality.   Please also see my pages on Tantra Products , as well as my Relationship Books pages.

For private sessions, increasing your knowledge and skill as a lover, please see my pages on learning Tantra.

I still don’t understand how we ever got the idea that suffering was good.

You are wise to be insistent in questioning that.  The original wisdom surrounding suffering in silence has become so perverted that now many believe (and several religions actually teach) that suffering is good, and joy is bad. Therefore, you have decided that if someone has cancer, but keeps it to himself, he is a saint, whereas if someone has (to pick a dynamite topic) robust sexuality, and celebrates it openly, she is a sinner.

Boy, You did pick a dynamite topic.  And You cleverly changed the pronoun, too, from male to female. Was that to make a point?

It was to show you your prejudices. You don’t like to think of women having robust sexuality, much less celebrating it openly.

You would rather see a man dying without a whimper on the battlefield than a woman making love with a whimper in the street.

Conversations with God, by Neale Donald Walsch

Safer sex techniques can save your life, and prevent spreading other diseases that make your sex life unpleasant.  AIDS is far from the only disease being spread sexually.   There are drug-resistant strains of syphilis and gonorrhea.  Herpes is widespread.

Simple techniques can greatly reduce your risk, while still allowing you to give and receive exquisite sexual pleasure.

ItemId=0892814284 Earth Honoring: The New Male Sexuality, by Robert Lawlor
"Our sense of self, society, and spirituality are inseparably linked to our sexuality. This book explores the particular role of male sexuality in the formation of these three vital areas of life. In it I [Lawlor] attempt to show how an imbalance in male sexuality is at the core of many contemporary problems... There is always a shifting, balancing and rebalancing of opposites through the natural cycles of time. I explore in this book these alternating cycles in the evolution of the dominant and submissive patterns of male and female sexuality throughout long periods of our history, as well as within our own lives. We shall be dealing with large ideas concerning human sexuality and envisioning some of the deep original causes, rather than the symptoms, of many modern-day crises."
