Recently someone tagged me in an article and wanted to know my thoughts on it. The article was about energetically connecting with someone through sex and intimacy and needing to cleanse your aura afterward.
Let me start by saying I totally agree with this idea. But it really made me think about consent and boundaries. We constantly violate other people’s boundaries without their consent. Energetically, not physically.
Did you know that the way that men and women get sexually aroused are vastly different? The reason why all goes back to our anatomy.
Men wear their sexual equipment, penis, and testicles, on the outside of their body. This provides them with a constant connection between sensation on their genitals and sexual arousal which starts around puberty. Men’s brains and bodies are therefore wired to make this association which is why the moment you touch a man's penis, he starts to feel aroused. Since men experience arousal this way, it makes sense that they would believe that women are exactly the same way. but in reality, arousal in women is very different than in men.
