Wednesday, 1 March, Let's talk about sex Dutch children: Sex is on public display in Amsterdam The country has the lowest rate of teenage pregnancy in Europe. Dutch children are taught about sex from a young age, but opt to have sex at a later age than their European counterparts.
Are they perfectly natural or should they be forbidden? Given the emotionally demanding nature of top level sport and the undisputed need for athletes to work closely with coaches, strong bonds are to be expected. Even the seemingly super-human are, in the end, only human, so sexual feelings and attractions will happen.
Especially given the physical proximity and time devoted to these relationships. Or more concerning, when an athlete is coerced or groomed into a sexual relationship by a more powerful and respected coach. It may feel too prescriptive and dogmatic to adult athletes who feel perfectly capable of deciding whether to pursue such a relationship.
For the CrossFit community, these questions are perhaps more pressing. There is often more crossover between the box and daily, community life. Maybe nothing, but without this topic becoming an open, transparent topic questionable ethics can arise even in a best case scenario. Damaging relationships that border on exploitation.
Also, the vast majority of coaches are interested in only furthering the success of their athletes and are not the predatory creatures that prohibitive policies on sexual relationships seem to suggest. Bela Karolyi, the former United States national gymnastics coach, spoke candidly about an unspoken coaching phenomenon — that male coaches get more out of their female athletes when they feel at least some attraction to their coach [iii].
He notes that attractive young male coaches inspire better training in his stock of female athletes. The argument here is that establishing consent within any relationship where there are inherent power imbalances can be tricky.
From this perspective, when there is a relationship where one member is a helper, teacher or expert, a sexual encounter can never be equal [iv].
One member of the relationship will always, even if unintentionally, be acting from a less powerful stance. While the other — even innocently — will be exploiting a position of power.
Sounds terribly sinister, and although it is extreme, this perspective demands a deeper consideration of the nature of relationships in order to behave ethically.
Even if you try to see each other as equals, you are not. Rather, it views these feelings as both a natural reaction, but also as a possible response to a state of dependence on another or a feeling of being needed or powerful which may not be immediately conscious or clear.
An article in the CrossFit Journal waxes poetic on the transformational, therapeutic relationships between coach and athlete [v]. The article describes how personal tragedies and struggles led people to become box members and how their experiences as athletes healed them.
As the article highlights, the people being coached are often vulnerable in some way. They might be shy, body conscious, depressed, lonely, in bad health or traumatized.James Houston put together the documentary “Let’s Talk About Sex” that highlights the differences between American’s approach to sex education and that of other countries like the Netherlands.
