    @aunt_flo @purple love the idea of a quick lunch date instead so there is none of that ‘when is it polite to leave?’ challenges you get on an evening date! Maybe a before work brekkie date?!

  • ekoorb9 replied to the topic First dates in the forum Sex & Relationships 2 months ago

    @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.

  • 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]

    @nurse_nettie Thank you! Not that I have any plans to get preggers at all but I did always wonder if there were any long-term health or fertility implications.
    @aunt_flo are you planning on getting one? I sometimes forget it’s there I’ve had it so long!

  • ekoorb9 replied to the topic The rod in the forum Sexual Health 3 months, 1 week ago

    Hi @aunt_flo

    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]

  • Hi @aunt_flo

    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]

    Hi @happyfuntime

    Interesting question! The vagina is self-cleaning so I imagine that it will ‘self-clean’. However, @nurse_nettie will know for sure! Thanks so much for the question 😀

  • 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]
