1.58 SEXUAL OPENNESS -- PSYCHOLOGY ABUSE TERMS, CONCEPTS

==== Sexual Openness

MEANING: The ability to talk directly about sexual matters and to learn about and participate in mutually agreeable sexual activities with a consenting partner.

RELEVANCE TO ABUSE: Abusers often use sex to control a partner by allowing or refusing. Others also use it to manipulate the partner by being sexually available so that the partner will do what the abuser wants. However, healthy sex in a relationship is about giving and communication, not control.

PERSONAL NOTE FROM RICK DOBLE: Thank God we can finally talk about this stuff. Sex is not everything, but then neither is food. Sex is part of life and can be a very enjoyable part. Two partners will change over time which everyone does as they grow older. In order to keep a healthy satisfying sexual relationship, they will need to be sexually open with each other. Sex or the lack of it or the lack of sexual communication can make or break a relationship and be the cause of a lot of other, seemingly unrelated problems.

RELATED WORDS AND PHRASES: sexy, comfortable with one's sexuality, sexual communication
