if most people looked into Enneagram, the sexual instinct would probably be the one most people would want to be, but honestly? I feel like it is kind of made fun of, stigmatized, viewed as "awkward" or even shunned in American culture.
- if two people show each other any kind of affection or experience real intimacy, people automatically assume they're dating and everyone makes a fuss about it and immediately starts gossiping
- if two members of the same sex have a strong bond, people seem to assume they're homosexual or bi
- displays of sexual energy or even talking about sexual topics in most social settings is considered "awkward"
- women who like to be sexy and graceful are viewed as "fast" or even "whores"
- men who are more sensual are viewed either as a) effeminate and probably gay or b) a misogynistic, chest thumping bastard (depending on the style of sexuality displayed. they might assume the former for an INFP 9w1 and the latter for an ESTP 7w8)
- people freak out at the very thought of nudity. I'm not saying everyone should want to see everyone naked, but why is it even a big deal if you accidently see someone's butt?
- people tend to think passionate, intense relationships are "moving too fast". my thoughts are, if a relationship is heating up quickly, that's a good thing. it means you will have a meaningful relationship and a hot sex life sooner.
- sexual roles are so...ritualized. it seems like most sexual things in today's culture is extremely premeditated, artificial and lack spontaneity.
