@kitkat the bad (maybe it’s good? Can’t say I’ve tried it) sex tip I remember from Cosmo was for someone to put their penis through the whole of a doughnut and have their partner eat it to spice up oral sex.
The fruit one sounds a lot worse, though!
I heard a segment the radio yesterday about debunking sex myths that feature in hip hop, like…[Read more]
The convenience of this would be really tempting, but I’m not sure i’d be comfortable with all the ‘what-ifs’ that would come with using it.
What if your prescription was left in the sun all day waiting for you to pick it up?
What if it didn’t arrive in time?
I never liked having to go and get repeats from my doctor because it’s so time con…[Read more]
There’s a lot of information about what pharmacy medications can interact with hormonal birth control, but less so about over the counter medication.
Are supplements, like vitamin D, iron tablets, and calcium safe to take while using a hormonal birth control like the pill or implant?
That’s great @sextronaut.
Ahhh the sealed section of Dolly magazine. That taught me the answer to questions I didn’t know I had…and probably still wouldn’t have thought of without Dolly Doctor!
Two things that have always irritated me:
1. Using either water or the ‘mystery blue’ liquid in place of period blood in period product commercials.
2. In the Eminem song ‘The Real Slim Shady’, the word clitoris is bleeped out on the radio as if it’s a swear word!
It is really frustrating to feel like a vagina is something dirty or private…[Read more]
I realised the other day that, although I had sex education at school and ‘the talk’, I learned a lot about sex from friends and from television.
Not necessarily about the act of sex itself, but about terms and words that relate to sex and sexuality.
When I was in grade 6, a friend said ‘raise your hand if you’re a virgin’. I didn’t ra…[Read more]
I didn’t know that @tea!
My first period was my worst one. I think i was about 12, and luckily it was Jeans for Genes day at school and I wore dark denim, so no one could see that I bled right through them!
I knew what it was but was still a little freaked out and had to call my mum when I got home to find out where her pads where. All we h…[Read more]
@stephaniaaaah now that is a ROUTINE!
You’ve inspired me to prepare coffee for work. I’m way too tired to get my aeropress out in the morning, so I’ve started doing it the night before.
I’ve also started a little monthly tracker to see how I’m going – even one more evening a month where I go to bed at a reasonable hour will be an improvement!
I’m the same as @tea – I didn’t know that you could be gay (or bi for that matter) until I saw it represented on television. Funnily enough, the Simpsons episode with John Waters (zzzzzzap!) was my introduction to it.
Negative representation of bisexuality really affected me in my teen years – it seemed like so many representations of fem…[Read more]
I’m really glad that contraceptive options are expanding, particularly for men who have sex with women.
Not sure if I’d feel secure with my partner using this one though, especially if it can run off on me!
So to update – I actually went with the implant! I’m a naturally anxious person, so I feel like this was a good personal compromise – long-acting, reversible, progesterone-only and, if i need to, I can easily touch it and know that it’s there.
I had a long conversation with my doctor and had her support in making the decision which was great. 🙂
@tea I adjusted surprisingly quick! It’s power yoga in 40° heat. So, you do sweat quite a bit but as long as you’re well hydrated beforehand, it winds up being quite tolerable.
I despise summer, but absolutely love hot yoga.
That’s cool, I didn’t realise the Headspace option had that feature!

Agreed @catdog. I would hope my sexual partners feel comfortable enough with me to straight away let me know if they’re not into it.
So, we’ve talked IUD removal…
Let’s talk about the decision to get one! I, unfortunately, experienced what could have been a migraine with aura, meaning I’m no longer the ideal candidate for the combined pill.
I’m pretty upset by it – I love the pill, and the thought of switching makes me very nervous.
I’m trying to avoid horror stories…[Read more]
I’m waiting for the good advice to roll in!
I can usually get up earlier on weekends, or when I have something to look forward to. Maybe moving something you usually enjoy later in the day (like a snack, drink or activity) to earlier in the morning can help to give you something to look forward to?
Aside from weekend brunches or hikes, the only…[Read more]
Keen bean for season 2!
I thought the show was a little bit painful, e.g. when Bec left her window and curtains widddddeee open AND when Joe was able to stalk her with just a cap hiding his appearance.
But otherwise, I really enjoyed it! I do find it a little bit creepy that quite a few people seem to think Joe is a great boyfriend, though!
I relish the low-key catch up @GoldenRose! I have a few friends that I’ll invite over, sit and watch a movie….and then leave the movie on pause because we’re too busy talking!
Since coming out of high school, hospo life and uni life (I’m now 25), I’ve found that group hangs are a lot less frequent. I’ve actually found a whole new girl group…[Read more]

True @GoldenRose! You don’t need any reason other then ‘I don’t want to/I’m not feeling it’.
