A sex-positive position is different than participating in a culture that openly objectifies and dehumanizes you. It is about rejecting the concept of rape culture (the idea that patriarchy denies the ability to consent) for one's personal benefit and ultimately the benefit of culture. This is a good thing, I like sex with men. Sex-positive is about incorporating different modes of sexuality into feminist discourses. Sex-positive is about owning your own sexuality, being comfortable with the sexuality of others and rejecting hegemony from the patriarchy about how our sexuality is supposed to be expressed.
From a comment on Jezebel (comments are easily the best thing on that site).
