Such a good question! I lived and travelled Europe for a year and came across some interesting differences about accessing safer sex.
– Some places in Europe had condom machines on the street which I thought was very cool and practical.
– A lot of the time you can buy condoms from hostels and even some hotel receptions.
– In some places you…[Read more]
I’m sure a lot of us have heard about climate change recently in the media. I’ve seen so many images (and even memes) of 16-year old climate activist Greta Thunberg this week.
Anyone go to the Global Strike 4 Climate protests on Friday the 20th of September?
There’s estimates that over 300,000 Australia participated in stikes across the country…[Read more]
@sextronaut TOTALLY AGREE!!
I love ethical porn! I usually pay (its worth it) for porn from Erika Lust I would totally recommend checking her out. Its really nice to see porn with women actually enjoying themselves and diversity isn’t fetishised. Erika gets it right!
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]
I’m sure you’ve heard Australian Instagramers can no longer see the number of likes on individual posts!
According to some studies Instagram is the most damaging social media platform for mental health in users aged 14-24
Instagram hopes the change will restore focus to the images being shared, not their perceived popularity. In part I also…[Read more]
Ahh wow @earthmama very scary! I wonder if that has anything why Instagrams has changed to no longer show likes?
Good point about less marriages less sex @goldenrose I read an article not long ago (sadly can’t find) about how this could be linked to movements towards individualism living where more young epople are able to live lives however…[Read more]
A had no idea how sex worked when I was young – I used to think it meant when two people hugged and kissed at the same time hahaha (sort of)..
I only found out about what sex actually was one day when I was jumping on the trampoline with a friend who just randomly blurted it out to me matter-of-factly.
I guess I learnt…[Read more]
Is our generation having less sex then our parents or grandparents generations?
Are we staying at home more? Is it the availability of porn?
I personally am shocked, I thought young people were having lots of sex especially due to hookup apps like Tinder and Grindr which makes it so much…[Read more]
I’ve just moved in with my partner and I was wondering if anyone had any tips or advance about how they maintain a healthy relationship while living with your partner.
So far we’ve gone with the telling each other anything that annoys you straight away.
I got annoyed when he didn’t scrub the toliet (ew)
and he was annoyed when I left my…[Read more]
so so so UNFAIR @goldenrose!!! This happened to me, My doctor forgot i was under 25 and told me i needed to do a cervical screening. I did and thank goodness i did because the test ended up coming back abnormal. But because I was under 25 and the test was abnormal (so they had to test it further) i was forced to pay more money ($100). I was so…[Read more]
So i was chatting to a bi friend recently about what happens when they get an STI check.
When he went in to a sexual clinic they recommended he did an anal swob, HIV blood test, and a pee in a cup test. They also let him do his own anal swob.
I (a bi women) went to the same sexual health clinic and I was recommended something completely…[Read more]
I’ve had an experience with this also!
When i first started my anti-depressants I also around the same time started on the pill and i was so shocked when i had sex with someone that i couldn’t get wet at all! i was so upset! it was so confusing at the time and i was finding sex very painful without lots of lube. I eventually went and changed my…[Read more]
I have had a dry spell before after a hard breakup i didn’t sleep with anyone for about a year!
At the time I do think i felt some pressure to be having sex but I really focused on myself and my studying, did some travelling and spent some time with my family and friends which i look back on now and realise it was exactly what i needed in that…[Read more]
When I first started having sex I remember I was pretty confused by the whole thing and why everyone found it so enjoyable. I didn’t end up having orgasms and really enjoying sex for a long time afterwards.
If I could go back what I wish I knew before having sex was that female masturbation was normal and healthy! If I had maybe explored my own…[Read more]
curiousss replied to the topic 'Eating Ass' and other offers that are suddenly everywhere in the forum Sex & Relationships 11 months, 3 weeks ago
I see this on tinder all the time!
I wonder if its people trying to express that their open about sexuality and performing sex acts (eating ass) that have been viewed as taboo in the past.
I used to do swim squad so the first time i used a tampon was when I was 12. I found it so tricky to figure out how to insert it.
The first time i tried using one was before my swim squad practice and i didn’t put the tampon in far enough. My vagina felt SO uncomfortable from the half sticking out tampon that as soon as training was over i ran…[Read more]
