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’.

You’re hugging, kissing, maybe you’ve even started having sex then suddenly…nah, not feeling it.
How do you tell someone that you’re ‘not feeling it’ – that while you’ve started being intimate or having sex, you now want to stop and watch a movie.
Has this happened to you? How have you approached it? Did you/would the other person’s feelings…[Read more]

Ha! I’m not alone @goldenrose!
I have also had accidental anal. I’ve had anal sex before, but this was a dark room, and up until that point it was PIV. The accidental anal really took me by surprise. I bled a little bit and that was definitely enough to completely kill the mood.
I’ve had both experiences you’ve mentioned with school friends – one I have cut off, and other where we worked it out.
With the one I cut off completely, it’s similar to what you mentioned – we were sort of talking at each other, rather than to each other. We had been friends for more than 20 years, and I found that as we got older she would…[Read more]
I’ve never had to deal with this, but it does sound really challenging.
I guess one plus side would be you would need to get better at communicating your needs to your partner, so maybe having a long distance sex life could help improve communication.
I know that some companies make ‘long distance’ sex toys that operate via a Bluetooth or ap…[Read more]
Results from a survey conducted by Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety have been released.
A few key points from the findings:
– 1 in 7 young Australians think a man can force a woman to have sex if she initiated the interaction but then changed her mind
– 1 in 4 believe that ‘revenge porn’ is the fault of the women w…[Read more]
I don’t really discuss how often I masturbate with friends, but definitely have conversations about what we’re into, how we do it, what toys we like and don’t like etc.
I think how about people masturbate is personal, and it’s probably not the same answer every time. I don’t think there’s such as thing as doing it ‘too little’. There are benefits…[Read more]
I also had to pay when they were transitioning between tests. I got the regular test, but the new test as well as my gynaecologist told me it was more accurate.
Age is a risk factor for cervical cancer and with that in mind, as well as high vaccination rates for HPV, I think it’s fair to charge people under 25.
It would reduce the amount of (…[Read more]
I guess it depends on what you’re looking for in a condom!
I use a few brands. I usually go for ones that claim to be extremely thin, ‘skin-like’, ‘feather light’ etc. to minimise the feel of the actual condom. Ansell’s Skyn range is one of my preferred brands for that reason. A bonus if you or your partner is sensitive to latex is that they’re…[Read more]
I’m right there with you @aphrodite9 – I will almost always get up to pee after sex!
Sometimes, especially if you’re already in bed and sleepy, it can be a bit of a pain…but I’d rather that than the pain of a UTI!
