Does this count? I am a medical student but have been interested in Obstetrics and Gynaecology way before I started med school because I worked as a clinic assistant for a wonderful gynaecologist. And different med students have different areas of interests, and I openly share my love for O&G. And it does start conversations - from friends asking about when should they start having their first pap smear, to sharing of sexual fantasies of the unmarried and hence religiously celibate.
So…I guess I make sex normal by being proud of my love for O&G, such that it’s normal to have a textbook opened on my desk to a page with a “graphic image” that anyone visiting me gets to see?
