Accusing someone of having (or enjoying) sex as a way of insulting them is a form of externalized sex negativity.
Feeling insulted by such accusations is a symptom of internalized sex negativity.
In other words, both statements in the following exchange demonstrate sex negativity:
“You’re a slut!”
“How dare you insult me!”
It takes a great deal of conditioning to make us ashamed of our sexuality, and a great deal more to undo the damage once it has been done.
