Leading A Healthy (Sex) Life

SEX, three simple words that make life on this earth progress, and I mean this completely literally. Considered a very taboo topic by most people in the country; but when it all boils down to it, we are all by products of a rollicking good time had by consenting adults. That being said, it seems like it is not appropriate to discuss our sexuality with people; and if you ask adults they tend to tell you that the only time to discuss it is after you are married. While marriage may be the most appropriate time for it, some of us may not be interested in marriage or long term commitment; every person has their own sense and sensibility. End of the day sex is an act between consenting adults and let us all keep it that way. When done right, it has a lot of benefits to your health, so now we all have more reason to be sexually active.
