What is the Meaning of Sexual Empowerment?

How a Sex Mat Can Boost Your Confidence and Sex Life

How you regard yourself and how you see yourself fitting into the society around you is an important facet of your personality. Many different things come into play, including personal feelings about your sexuality. These feelings can be formed early in life by your upbringing and family experience, they can be shaped by the society you live in, and by genetic factors. In today’s post, we will discuss sexual empowerment and its importance in creating and maintaining a healthy psychological outlook.

How Empowerment Works

To feel empowered, certain factors must be present. You should feel free to make decisions about your body, for example. This autonomy means you understand that you have the right to choose sexual partners and engage in sexual activities, or not, without fear of coercion, judgment, or persecution. Other factors that affect the meaning of sexual empowerment in your life include the following:

Understanding Consent – Consent is a two-way street and you should never forget you have the right to say no. When a person says no and does not want to engage in sex, they should be able to do so without feeling the need to explain themselves.

Self-Respect and Confidence – These complex feelings are interrelated and important for your psychological health. They can directly affect feelings of sexual empowerment, which can in turn affect your feelings of self-respect and confidence.

Access to Information – Information from personal experience and other forms of education can be important for developing feelings of empowerment. Knowing that you are not alone, and other people exist who feel the same way or have similar experiences can be a powerful factor in developing confidence and feelings of self-worth.

How Masturbation Helps

Sexual empowerment means you are in control of the sexual experience and you can have sex when you want it. It means you have the power to say yes or no at any moment, and no one can control your ability to enjoy physical pleasure or access to an orgasm. Masturbation can be an important tool in fostering feelings of empowerment and may improve your sex life.

How Toys Help

Sex toys can be an important therapeutic device for helping men and women develop feelings of empowerment.

Vibrators and dildos can increase feelings of sexual empowerment and boost confidence by making orgasms easier to attain. They can have drawbacks, however. They require you to use your hands, which may prevent you from moving naturally. They can inhibit natural expression.

Dildos and vibrators with suction cups on the bottom can eliminate the need for you to use your hands, but they need a smooth surface for attachment. This is what the Lotus Sex Mat provides.

How The Lotus Sex Mat Helps

The Lotus Sex Mat can be used in almost any room. It can be a valuable partner in your search for sexual empowerment and meaningful moments of sexual release.

Using the mat is simple. Roll it out on almost any hard floor or carpeted surface so that it lays flat. Moisten the suction cup on your dildo or vibrator and attach it to the hard plastic base. Straddle your toy or sit on it, and engage in whatever activity you like, with your toy securely attached beneath you.

Your hands remain free to stimulate other parts of your body or your partner, while your toy remains firmly in place. Now you’re ready to self-pleasure in safety, confident that your toy won’t come free and leave you in an unexpected lurch. The mounting surface is big enough to hold multiple toys, making it easy to switch around.
