VO5 Summer of Love Series: How to spot unhealthy behaviour in the bedroom
This week the theme for the VO5 series involves Sex, Consent and Jealousy and in particular I want to look at unhealthy behaviour in the bedroom.
Whether you are in a long term relationship or just having a casual fling with someone, it is always important that you enjoy and feel comfortable with what happens in the bedroom.
What do you think when you hear the term unhealthy behaviour in the bedroom?... initially I think violence.
However there are a whole range of different acts that constitute as ‘unhealthy’ and can be as damaging and uncomfortable, making your sexual experiences negative/ unpleasant.
The article ‘How to spot unhealthy behaviour in the bedroom’ lists some of these behaviours, such as: taking photos/videos without your consent, pressuring you to have sex even after you have said no and criticising and putting you down (plus many more).
If you believe your sexual relationship is unhealthy, it’s recommended that it doesn’t continue but these things can be hard to stop. So what advice would you give someone who’s stuck in a relationship with a person who demonstrates these behaviours?
