I know the origins, the meaning of the colors, the scents: I can call them one by one with the name assigned to them, when the earth was split like a rind to offer them to the sky. The heat they give off runs through my veins. From amchur, mango powder, to saffron, they all meet my needs. A whisper, and they reveal to me secret properties and magical powers "...

Sexuality is a fundamental component in our life, aimed mainly at the search for pleasure and procreation, and at the same time capable of satisfying our needs for sweetness, passion, pampering, affection, sensuality and the need to belong. Sexuality perceived since childhood intrigues children who begin to explore their intimacy to discover their own body, for various reasons: pleasure, urge to evacuate, or consolation to their worries. With puberty and the maturation of secondary sexual characteristics, the growth of desire becomes more and more intense, reaching its peak during adolescence. Auto-eroticism is one of the most common forms in which eroticism communicates our need for sexual fulfillment. Often the autoerotic practice in children puts parents in serious difficulty who, embarrassed about the subject, sometimes do not know what to respond to explicit behaviors aimed at exploring their own intimacy. However, these absolutely normal behaviors should be guided, suggesting to our little ones that they must be done in their intimacy, without intrusion by other peers or adults, strangers and / or acquaintances, and above all to learn their assertiveness, or the ability to say no. Learning to adopt the right attitude towards sexuality by involving children through suitable communication sets the basis for a harmonious and positive development towards the awareness of our intimacy. Childhood sexuality from adult sexuality is totally different, and the construction of a healthy sexuality is built from an early age through knowledge and communication suited to the age and culture of belonging.
