This week our hosts are going to dive into the connotations behind “Vanilla sex”. This informative episode will allow listeners to look past their own misinterpretations and find the comfort and intimacy that resides in keeping things Vanilla!
Vanilla sex is a phrase that surrounds the type of sexual interaction that would be determined ‘typical’ for the persons that are involved in the activity. Everyone is going to have their own interpretation, and luckily there is a great article that covers more into it, but for right now, we will go with the most straightforward idea. It is an act of comfort and intimacy between you and your sexual partner, unfortunately, the term has been burdened with negative language. Prude, dullish, or by-the-numbers sex is oft alluded to when discussing this term, but fret not, because nothing could further from the truth. Our episode highlights these falsehoods and exposes them as simple barriers to a happy and healthy consensual relationship. There is nothing shameful or wrong about “Vanilla sex” and to think so only propagates a damaging stereotype. Rather the idea itself is the pinnacle of a solid foundation between sexual partners, and something most relationships seek as an aspiration. Take your time and examine this new episode because, who knows, Vanilla might be your new flavor.
