EP 571: Yuval Mann – Sex, Authenticity, and Living an Empowered Life

How can sex be a powerful tool for empowerment and transformation?

Curiosity is key. Sexuality is an integral aspect of our humanity. If we look at nature, everything exists in relationship to something else. Same with humans and our relationships. We are sexual beings. It’s the most authentic expression of who we are. Whatever you experience is exactly right for you right now. Any challenge, any triumph, any heartbreak is the doorway to unlock your transformation.

Anything that gets in the way of enjoying sex can be seen as a problem, or we can get curious and stop labeling them. Instead, see them as evolutionary signals and learn a lot of things.

What’s the connection between the way you have sex and your relationship with the rest of life?

The biggest perspective we can take is the observation that we don’t exist in separation from others. Sex can help us enmesh vulnerably with another person. We can heal each other and hurt each other. We have a deep inherent connection with touching others. Sexuality is a potent platform to explore all of our vulnerabilities. When we’re not authentic, it’s evident. 

How do we begin to be less guarded and more vulnerable sexually?

We often see vulnerability as weakness, but it’s courage. We’re opening to heartbreak, but we’re also opening to intimacy. We can’t have great sex without vulnerability. Begin by opening up slowly. After a while, it becomes part of you. Be yourself is a deep exploration of connecting back to your authentic aliveness. It’s a somatic body experience far more than their intellect. Learn to separate your direct experience where you might blame others from your individual sensual experience. 

Why do you believe feminine and masculine energy is a myth? 

It’s important to form an objective experience in terms of feminine and masculine energies. The problems I see in speaking those terms is that there’s an inherent binary archetype with qualities associated with it. That’s problematic, because humans are on a spectrum. There’s a range of human expression. It can be harmful to be so binary when it comes to how we should be. We’re all unique beings and every relationship is unique. We need to be careful not to buy into arbitrary archetypes as to what people should and shouldn’t be. Instead, look at what you’re experiencing and what you’d like to experience instead. 

What are your final words of advice for anyone who wants to go on their last first date?

I get the idea of wanting to stop going on dates and being in a relationship. Sometimes we need to keep going on dates to have a human experience. Instead of looking for the ‘one’, know that everyone is the ‘one’ for you right now. Don’t allow the longing for the ‘one’ stop you from a deeper connection from yourself, life, and sex. Stay open.
