Michael: Why did you decide on this as your passion?
Dr. de Wit: I’ve constantly been fascinated with SEX at a young age. I’ve been viewing, reading and researching since I was 11 years old. In college I was creating and alibi to learn far more about sex. At the age of 19, I woke up one morning getting much more passionate and fascinated about sex. I have a buddy who was sexually abused at a young age and I could not comprehend it back then. I had no capacity to comprehend what was going on. So I had to discover far more. Now I know about ‘power dynamics’ which, when explored and understood can be noticed as the most gorgeous factor on the planet. But when they are abused it can be the most traumatic knowledge for any human being.
Michael: What types of various dynamics should individuals be aware of throughout sex?
Dr. de Wit: Naturally in sexual interactions there could be energy exchanges, which are every distinct. There are 1000 distinct ones and in all of them, communication is the most critical. “Communication is lubrication for healthy relationships and sex.”. Its a way to locate out and uncover what your partner really, genuinely wants. Generally people operate by default sexual roles. For example: “My past partner likes this, so my next companion is going to like this as well.” The default sex education for everybody is porn. There are distinct messages and views of sex, which are not necessarily real. This can trigger a main disconnections so I operate with men and women to cleanse their sins.
Michael: Their what?
Dr. de Wit: Their Sins – standards, ideals and norms.
Michael: Okay. That is quite sensible. You’re like a priest/healer/medical professional. What norms are we talking about?
Dr. de Wit: The “Prime ten items to drive your partner wild” stuff that is out there. Like, wait a second, when did you ask them and uncover out? When did you have sex with my partner – how do you truly know what will drive them wild?
Michael: Wonderful point! How would they know? About partners, how can a couple deal with sexual variations?
Dr. de Wit: Speak about it. Folks not possessing awareness about might cause the entire relationship to not operate. Sometimes its not a point people consider, like “let’s have a awkward and uncomfortable conversations with partner.” But we have to deal with what is going on. Use the Double RR – “R2″ for quick, which means, Respect Reality. Spend consideration to their reactions when you speak about factors or do factors differently. As a way to develop up your awareness, you can examine their facial reactions, are they silent, or actually talkative, are they possessing a diverse bodily reaction?
Michael: Thats effin’ excellent! But how do we they speak about it?
Dr. de Wit: Check in and ask, “Hey I noticed you giggled when I sucked your toe – what happened there?” with a smile on your face. They could say, “It was ticklish, I liked it, I was turned on.” Who knows? But go back and locate out.
Michael: So maybe that is an indicator, when they are turned on they giggle.
Dr. de Wit: You’d never know unless you ask.
Michael: It appears you don’t truly talk about specifics or actions like push here, thrust there and so forth. Why is that?
Dr. de Wit: The most consistent person you’ll be having sex with, is yourself. So your connection with yourself is pivotal. Lots of folks are walking around with a sexual script from the exact same final hundred years. They do not know who they are sexually. If I inform them tongue right here, thrust there, I’m no better than those best ten articles. I feel it is far better to create the type of sex that functions for them.
Michael: What must folks do if the dynamic in the course of sex isn’t working?1
Dr.Stephen: As I talked about, the most crucial sexual relationship is the one you have with your self. We need to have to create a healthy sexual connection with us first. Men and women frequently appear at sex as “I require to locate somebody I can find and have wonderful sex with.”
“Instead of expecting to uncover great sex in a connection, we need to have to bring fantastic sex to the partnership”
Michael: Stephen, this is massive. I live by this principle and I had no idea it was named that. You brought language to something I did not know how to clarify. Thank you! So then how can men and women bring excellent sex to a relationship?
Dr. de Wit: Use the Sexual freedom method which, develops self awareness.
*Sexual self acceptance – For who you are and who you are not.
*Sexual duty – The ownership of all issues you do in the bedroom.
*Sexual self expression – The absence of all the sins, thoughts, that this is who I am.
Michael: What is the future of sex?
Dr. de Wit: I hope that the stigma that’s associated with sex is lessened, because its externally driven. It’s judgment from society and other folks which drives us. And improve the awareness of self stigmas. There are massive ones like “I’m ‘broken'” which is a terrible 1 I hear from men and women. Not orgasming the right way, or
“My penis doesn’t execute the way I want it to.”
There’s this broad brush we tend to paint of generalities like “you happen to be gay, you have HIV, you never have the appropriate to get married, and you are poor.” These no longer exist.
Michael: What’s one thing you want my readers to know about sex?
Dr.Stephen: There is no correct way, no incorrect way. There’s just your way. If anybody is attempting to tell them otherwise – that is a red flag. Query the intent of the message – is to get you to acquire some thing, take an action, really feel a certain way, or steer clear of taking an action. People have to have agency over the decisions they make with their bodies.
