I am a fan of sexual and intimacy goal setting. It is a way to prioritize your pleasure and not let it languish as life happens. It also provides inspiration when things feel a bit redundant or boring.
However, so many sexual bucket lists take two approaches I am not a fan of. The first lists types or people to have sex with. These lists fetishize race, size, fame and are gross in my opinion. The other approach is to list a long set of activities with little context. These can supply inspriation, but feels hollow to me.
I am a fan of prioritizing emotions and connection for sex. Here is a bucket list of different types to sexual emotional encounters to pursue. As you reminisce about the different times you have satisfied one of these list items, think about what itt told you about yourself.
