Talking about sex is a taboo. Among the things we do but don't talk about, sex is probably on top of the list. Even married people don't feel comfortable discussing it. The shyness around that topic gets even more intense with women. But not talking about it has cost us dearly, even our lives. Literally.

Marriages break apart because of lack of open sexual communication. People have various notions of what should and should not be done in bedrooms before and after marriage. Most women have a difficult time to initiate sex, let alone to experiment new possibilities. Even couples who had relatively active sex life before marriage become reserved afterwards thinking that there are things married couples shouldn't do. As a result, many people suppress their desires and others revert to extra marital affairs.

Millions have died of HIV/AIDS and tens of millions of children have become orphans because of the taboo. Over 90% of HIV transmissions were due to sexual contact. People were sexually active but because of lack of informative, open and honest discussion about sex, they didn't know how to protect themselves. Sadly, those who knew to a different extent were too ashamed to communicate with their partners. Eventually, we all were affected in one way or the other because of our killer timidity.

There are layers of reasons for lack of communicating our sexual desires with our partners openly and honestly. One of the reasons is a challenge to embrace our sexuality and that is mostly caused by not knowing ourselves. We are sexual beings so we are created with sexual organs and libido. The foundation to embrace our sexuality is to know our sexual self. How much do we know about our body? How in touch are we with our sexual emotions? How do we use and guide our sexual energy? Do we explore our body and listen to our feelings? Once we find out what we like and don't like, how comfortable are we to embrace it and eventually to communicate it?

Embracing our sexuality leads us to celebrating our womanhood. A woman who knows herself well and embraces her sexuality is a woman with unshakable self-esteem. In order to be empowered, fulfilled, progressive and healthy, a woman must be aware of her sexual being as she should be with other aspects of her being. Let's be bold, break the taboo, talk about sex and become more connected with ourselves.

This enlightening seminar is the first of many consecutive sessions on our sexuality.

This session will cover:

  • Exploring our body and female sexuality
  • Knowing and embracing our womanhood
  • How well do we know our body?
  • How well do we recognize our sexual desires?
  • How well do we embrace our libido?

Metasebia Shewaye Yilma (Meti) is known for her boldness. She is comfortable in her skin, embraces her libido and celebrates her womanhood. Through reading, discussing with professionals and self-discovery, Meti has accumulated valuable information that has transformed her life and she is happy to share. She has no difficulty starting sex-focused conversations with her friends and she often intrigues people to give more attention to their body and sexual desires. She strongly believes talking about sex openly will not only make us informed but also guide us to a more fulfilled and happy life. Ultimately, we become the better version of ourselves.
