It’s about to be summer and as the days – and nights – are heating up, we’ll explore how to have fearless sex.

If you’re new to Dr. Hick’s Guide to Living Fearless in 2015, I’ll give you the scoop. This year, we’re delving into what relationships could be like – what life could be like – if lived fearlessly. To date, we’ve explored the “how-to” basics: how to love yourself, dating fearlessly, how to rise in love instead of fall, and most recently, how to take a fearless look at your relationships in order to renew them. Dr. Hick is a Denver psychologist who specializes in coaching clients through relationships, anxiety, dating, and self-development.

Fearlessness and Sex

Like it or not, we all have fears about sex. It is part and parcel of growing up in a society (and in some cases, in families) that make sex, bodies, desire, and fantasy taboo topics.

Practicing fearlessness in sexual encounters is not about having sex with complete strangers or having unsafe sex. Protecting yourself and your partners from potential emotional or physical harm is always recommended.

Evaluating the Emotional Health of a Relationship

Before you take the next step in your relationship, consider checking in about the emotional health of the partnership. Similar to the practice of discussing each other’s sexual health before having sex, discussing emotional health before you move forward with a significant relationship milestone, like being exclusive, is critical. If you don’t evaluate the emotional health of a relationship, you may rush into intimacy and commitment without fully understanding your compatibility. This can contribute to frustration, disappointment, and relationships being built on an unstable foundation.
