Our thoughts and feelings towards our body and desire are intricately linked.

When we don’t feel attractive, we judge, criticise and close ourselves down so “it’s hard to imagine someone sees us with different eyes than the way we see ourselves, and we don’t feel we deserve their sensual touch- or our own” (Esther Perel). 

Sex is a want not a need, and in order to feel want we need to feel deserving and open to a sexual experience. 

If we struggle to be in our own bodies, why would we take the time to invite anyone else in?
