I’m with you @stephaniaaaah, love a good dad bod!
I agree that there’s not a lot of body positivity out there for men and also a lot of pressure to look a certain way, even with things such as height which can’t be changed. I see so many posts/memes online and even talking to friends about people only being interested in tall men and I feel like…[Read more]
@tea YAY it takes a little bit of practice to get yourself in the relaxing zone and it can definitely be a struggle. I started out DYING by about the 500 metre mark and had to really persist to get to one or two kilometres. I find it really helpful to breath in through the nose and out through the mouth and just try to do that in rhythm to the…[Read more]
@earthmama Omg!!! I am so following this thread, I really want to get into some cardio but maybe rollerblading instead? Running is just so hard!!!
The tips from @stephaniaaaah are really helpful though! Thank you!! My gf agrees with the meditation thing too actually, she says it’s ‘soothing’ which I can’t really get into myself!!
I really love…[Read more]
@mintmilano @stephaniaaaah Thanks so much for sharing your experiences! Hmm yeah, I think with the queer culture there’s a lot of pressure to perform/look a certain way to ‘fit in’ with the crowd. Personally I think that it’s all the quirks that make everyone so beautiful. Yesssss!!! Agreed. (Also, so cute)!
@stephaniaaaah omg how horrifying!! I can’t believe a full menstrual cup fell out of you!!! While wearing white!! Jeewhiz.
Thank goodness you weren’t still on the train, I would have totally freaked out.
@tea it’s not as scary as it sounds! hahah suction makes it sound a bit like a vacuum. Mine just feels like gentle pulses, it feels amazing and there’s nothing super suction-y about it. 🙂
@tea It didn’t! 🙁 I need to be on my period for the procedure so booking the appointment is tricky, particularly this time – my appointment was 5 days late! Second month in a row that a late period has screwed up my plans. I’m really iron deficient at the moment and I think it’s what’s making my period more irregular than usual. Fingers are…[Read more]

Interesting points about baptism @kitkat, I suppose it’s hard to do anything with babies because how do you gain their consent? I think you’re right about waiting until people can make decisions for themselves so it’s more meaningful.
@kitkat I’m so glad you found the video useful! It really helped clear any misconceptions I had about HPV.
@mintmilano Omg what? I haven’t seen anything like that, but I don’t have a TV so that could be why!! You’re so right about it being similar to herpes in the sense of it being made out to be worse than it is. It’s not really scary at all as…[Read more]
Ohh I’ve always wondered the same thing @aunt_flo! I haven’t been taking supplements recently though but I always worry about interactions like this. Good to know it’s safe to take! But yeah definitely a good idea to bring up with the GP/pharmacists!
@clubgrl I love toys which have a nice vibration setting! Thanks for the recommendation, I’ve been looking for something I haven’t tried out before. 15 functions are amazing!!!
hahaha @earthmama GO YOU!!! I love running – are you finding it fun?? So cool that you are making that connection with breathlessness as a positive! LOVE IT!
OH my I’ve been out running and my leggings are falling down and then I’ve got swooped by a plover and there are people drinking wine on the verandah of the house by the path actually…[Read more]
@earthmama my experience is that you can have great sex with casual hook-ups that you can’t stand in other contexts – for me it is the sort of tear each other clothes off fun sex – and then leg it out of there before they open their mouths and say something that is going to make you go ‘eeeeew’.
When I was meeting people for casual sex via apps…[Read more]
hahahaha OMG holy heck that’s the worst @sextronaut
I would have been absolutely mortified!! I can’t believe that you had to unblock the sink with the toilet brush.
I too have a menstrual cup related period horror story which isn’t quite as bad as yours but also – heaviest day of my period – I had a full day work training session which was…[Read more]
oh no @curiousss that’s a tragedy! I think I would be lost without my phone now – It kind of takes me back to before smartphones when you’d have to drive to the servo and look up the address of where you were going in the street directory and write down Left/Right instructions to follow to get to where you were going haha the stress of it all! I…[Read more]
I’m sure anyone with a period has at least one “oh sh*t” period related story, and I’m actually shocked that I can’t find a thread like this on here.
t.w. lots of blood!
I’m a menstrual cup user, and when I’m on my period and away from home I prefer to use a bathroom that also has private access to a sink so I can rinse out my…[Read more]
So cool to hear everyones feedback!
I’ve really found so far after instagram has removed likes numbers I have felt less anxious at checking how many likes I have and its made me realise how much that does affect my mental health and sense of self esteem! Crazy! However @earthMama I think I feel the same too! I post way less without being able to…[Read more]
