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]

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]
With summer fast approaching, and Schoolies around the corner it’s easily going to be one of the most exciting times of your life and with excitement comes new experiences. Some of which you might not be prepared […]
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]
