Is Phone Sex Normal For People in a Relationship to Have?

 


Whether or not it’s “normal” to have phone sex has been a debate since phone sex arrived on the scene in the late 80s. Long heralded as a taboo or deviant behavior, social ideas about phone sex are starting to change. So, let’s talk about whether phone sex is normal and how deviating from social norms can improve your sex life.

 

How Socio-Cultural Norms Affect Our Sex Lives

 

For a long time now, the cultural taboos around sex have been changing. Now, people are more open-minded, and more people can live peacefully with their identities. 

 

Anything having to do with sex has been stigmatized for all of human history. It used to be that sex outside of marriage or with a partner of the same gender was considered terrible. Plus, misinformation about the effects of masturbation spread like wildfire. People used to believe that self-pleasure would cause you to go blind or grow hairy palms when in reality, masturbation confers a host of health benefits to anyone who does it. 

 

But trying to scare people away from having sex has never worked. And as long as people make an effort to protect their health and emotions when having sex, the risks of sexual activity are low. 

 

Being Normal Is Perhaps Not the Best Goal

 

When talking about vulnerable aspects of our lives—especially sex—most people want to feel like they fit in. It makes sense, too, because feeling like you are normal is a balm to people’s anxieties and insecurities. 

 

And yet, seen in another light, being normal is akin to being common or average. But sometimes, in order to be perceived as normal, people will act like other people rather than themselves so that they don’t have to face as much pressure. The truth is that the pressure to be normal in the bedroom is everywhere. Many people take cues from the pop culture they watch for how to have sex, rather than checking in with themselves and their partners about what kind of sex lives they want to create. 

 

What’s much more important than being normal is being the best version of you. It sounds cliché, but it’s true. You won’t know how much you like sex or how much your partner enjoys sex with you until you let go of how you think sex is supposed to look and feel and start having the sex that you want.

Phone Sex: Is It Normal?

 

Phone sex spiked during the pandemic so, whether or not it used to have a status as a taboo, people are realizing that consensual phone sex is a healthy expression of sexuality. 

 

Even before the pandemic, less than half of the population (48.6 percent, to be exact) could say that they never had phone sex. And even more, people have had phone sex if phone sex is defined to include video sex and sexting—in fact, 78 percent have had phone sex. Since the vast majority of people are having phone sex, that means phone sex is normal. 

 

Whether or not phone sex is normal, though, you should feel empowered to have the kind of sex you want. If there are some fantasies you have that are taboo, if you find a consenting partner who is into the same things, you shouldn’t feel guilty or ashamed of those desires. 

 

This goes for your body, too. Whether or not your body is “normal,” you deserve affection and sexual pleasure. Listen to this phone sex expert talk about how important body positivity is.

Self-acceptance (and accepting your body and its sexual desires) is key to having a great life, period. 

 

In conclusion, phone sex is total, 100% normal. And even if it wasn’t, you should have it if it’s something you want. Phone sex between people in a relationship—especially a long-distance relationship—is a great way to stay connected and have some fun. But you don’t have to be in a relationship to want to have a wild experience on the phone. Single people love phone sex, too. Just make sure that you find a phone sex site that will protect your privacy before you start dialing.
