Thanks for sharing! And I definitely think it’s to do with each person’s personal experiences/expectations rather than cultures/ countries.(Reckon I titled this discussion wrong – sorry!)
I think this sums it up from Will:
I think sometimes even with the best availability of free STI testing in some countries, including…
I’ve been dating someone for six months and we decided to stop using condoms. I asked him to go and get tested and it turns out he has NEVER been tested. He’s older than me – 35! So, I was really surprised by this as it has always been such a part of my approach to sex and relationships.
However, he’s Brazilian and he said that it just…[Read more]
Hi @curiouss my last three partners I’ve met on Tinder (or before that Pof). I’m really open about it. I usually just say ‘we both swiped right 😅’.
To be honest, I reckon that it’s more unusual NOT to meet online nowadays!
@aunt_flo such a great question!
I reckon there is something to be said about sharing an experience and I think doing something you can both talk about on a first date is the way to go. Rather than just staring awkwardly at each other across a drink.
An art gallery or exhibition
Mini golf – Holey Moley in Sydney is a good call
Paddle boarding,…[Read more]
ekoorb9 started the topic Body Positivity….from Little Mix #stripforlittlemix in the forum Sex & Relationships 5 years, 3 months ago
So, I just came across a video from UK girl band Little Mix. While the music isn’t really my cup of tea, I love the body positivity message that they’re showing. Apparently it runs through their whole album. They’re also running a campaign called #stripforlittlemix getting people to share their stories and embrace who they are.
I know it’s…[Read more]
So…I discovered a new show last night (I’m probably massively behind the rest of the world haha). It’s called Big Mouth on Netflix and it’s all about puberty, sex etc. I only watched the first episode but I found it quite funny. Has anyone seen it? What’s your favourite scene?
I reckon shows like this are a great way to educate people on what…[Read more]

@champagnepapi @tea I also had to Google it. Never heard of it! Maybe @nurse_nettie can shed some light on what it is and if it’s something we should be thinking about.
I think it’s only a good thing that people are paying more attention to their sexual health (or any health at all) but it is such a fine line between being empowered and falling…[Read more]
Such a small world, but my housemate came home last night after having her implant taken out and was in a right state. It took her doctor 25 minutes of digging around, she bled everywhere and now she has a couple of stitches and a massive bruise. I’ve only ever had mine changed in the UK (will be getting it changed in Australia for the first time…[Read more]
I’ve had the contraceptive implant for 5 years now and love it. I was always terrible at taking the pill and kept forgetting which just gave me a lot of stress. I like the fact that I only have to worry about it every 3 years. I got mine in the UK, so not sure if it is the same timeframe here?
At the start, my periods were more…[Read more]
@tea @earthmama it is so strange that people still think like that. I identify as female and straight and I spend a of a lot of time thinking about sex – and talking to my friends about it! Gender and sexual orientation don’t come into it.
The way I see it? It’s natural to think and talk about the things you enjoy in life. And sex is one of those…[Read more]
The second video definitely gives more to think about. I personally think the whole ‘sex positive’ thing can actually be quite a difficult concept as it’s not actually as easy as ‘just get out there, and have all the sex’.
You’ve gotta meet someone you actually want to sleep with first 😅
Good point about the masturbation too! I…[Read more]
I came across this Youtuber called Hannah Witton the other day and she has shared two videos about Sex Positivity.
Why I’m Sex Positive
Why I’m not sex positive
I found they gave some really interesting perspectives on sex positivity and sex positive…[Read more]
