Happy New Year Everyone!
Your resolutions all sound great! It can be so liberating to feel like you have a fresh start, even if it is a human time illusion 😛
For this year I am endeavouring to partake in 2 self-care activities a week! I am training as a counsellor, and want to use this year to fill myself up before I start practicing.
I think…[Read more]
@tea I AM SO GLAD YOU’VE WATCHED IT TOO! My friend introduced me to it over the holidays and I have felt so conflicted also. It is certainly progressive in its depiction of gender and sexuality, as well as differently abled bodies…however I began to feel a little put off when I realised that one body type in particular kept being chosen. Even…[Read more]
This made me laugh @mintmilano I think A Star Is Born is possibly the worst sex music of all time- weirdly a very sexy movie though…
I always feel super ‘sexy’ around the holidays too. I wonder if it’s something to do with cosiness and time off and lovely food.
I had ‘the talk’ on my tenth birthday. I had been looking forward to it for two years, ever since my sister had been given hers. I remember my parents came into my room and we had watermelon. It was underwhelming and very biological and I remember thinking… I knew most of this anyway.
I can’t wait to have kids and give them an amazing and…[Read more]
@sextronaut these are such great tips!! I am especially intrigued by number 3… I haven’t used a cup myself but it answers some questions my friends have had.
I’ve just gotten into ModiBodi period undies! Has anyone else tried these? They also take a little getting used to, but after I read that a pad takes 500 years to break down- I just…[Read more]
@tea It’s so great you gave it a shot! And seriously- the whole point of it is that is gets your juices flowing and makes you realise how capable you are. It sounds like you know you could if you applied yourself, and that’s AMAZING!
I’m thinking I might try and do my own version in January. But yes, the key to success is community. The one year…[Read more]
Thank you so much @purple, @aunt_flo, @tea and @mintmilano !! All such insightful comments.
I feel like a huge theme that’s come up is communication being key…clearly there are as many different definitions of casual as there are people having the relationships- made more complicated still by the community or network we belong to.
There is…[Read more]
Casual relationships- does anyone else struggle with the defining them?
I am currently involved in something with a person who premised our second date with- ‘I’m not really looking for anything serious’. Two dates turned to semi-regular messaging, then became sex, now we’re back to very irregular messaging. I feel like I’m going crazy and that…[Read more]
aww @tea I wish!! I was doing so well for a few days but… real talk… I had to give it up because I was totally overdoing it with work at uni. I am pretty disappointed but have learned the hard way how important self care…next year I will be back. I’m gonna keep cheering you on though…I KNOW YOU CAN DO THIS. A casual 10,000 words is doable…[Read more]
@tea It’s interesting isn’t it! We know what we’re ‘supposed’ to do, but somehow the actuality is often different. If only there was some way to asked without being so explicit and potentially awkward…
@tea I’ve been thinking a little bit about this too, especially in causal sex situations where they may not be a huge level of comfort, familiarity or even trust involved. How do you go about asking casual partners if they have any STIs, or if they’ve been tested recently without sounding like a massive nerd 😛 I don’t know if it’s possible, and…[Read more]
YAY @tea so excited you’re doing your first Nano!! This will be my fourth year, and I cannot speak of the experience highly enough. It’s kind of incredible that a not-for-profit can be this massive AND still be unbelievably supportive and personal. It is so beautifully organised.
Your story idea sounds awesome! I too, am a massive John Green and…[Read more]
Anyone else doing Nanowrimo next month?
(National Novel Writing Month) If you haven’t heard of it and you are a writer/storyteller/person who has something to say, I suggest you look it up! It is pure, unadulterated MAGIC.
