Self Esteem And Sexuality Are Linked

  • Self esteem affects sexuality and sexuality affects self esteem
  • It is not only our body that can turn another person on or off, it is our entire person, mind, personality, and spirit that attracts another person
  • High self esteem causes us to feel more attractive, desirable, and confident about our sexuality
  • When we feel good about our sexuality we are connected to a part of ourselves that can provide:
  • A tremendous source of energy and pleasure
  • An outlet for stress and tension
