Taking control of your body Feeling sexy means that you have complete control over your body and you feel great about what you look like, feel like, and what you are capable of doing with your body. If you haven’t gotten “in touch” with yourself in a while (or ever, eek!) – go for it. Knowing and understanding your body is essential to being a strong and sexy individual. It also comes in handy when you want to be intimate with another individual – you know what you like and need and can have healthy communication about it.
