Sexy Is In The Eye Of The Beholder

There are so many people out there today with body image problems.  We are bombarded with images of bodies with not an ounce of body fat on them.  This can lead to some real problems in our relationships.  When we are in a relationship we want to share our body with our partner we want them to worship our nakedness.  But, when we don't measure up to the images on the magazines (Women's and Men's) sometimes we shy away from that attention.   We have to have the lights turned out and only then will we allow ourselves to be naked with our partner.

I once read an article about a famous sex educator that had this problem.  Even though she could get up in front of thousands of people and talk about the most intimate details about sex, she wouldn't allow her partner to see her naked.  Until one day she decided to give it a try.  What she found was while she was looking at all the parts of her body that she felt didn't measure up.  Her partner was looking and finding beauty in her body even in the places she thought were substandard and once he expressed that to her that self doubt went right out the window.

None of us are perfect even those models on the front of magazines are air brushed and angled just right to make them look better.  So why are you hiding in the dark?  Allow your partner to enjoy you nakedness and enjoy theirs.  Tonight make love with the lights on and see how sexy you really are!
