I’m glad to hear that I’m not the only one @goldenrose 🙂
Thanks for the advice @potplant and about being honest with it being awkward. Yes, I totally feel the appeal of just having a chat with someone over an app rather than meeting them outside, which is usually the better way to go to get to know each other more. I have been put off having…[Read more]

Thanks for your response @goldenrose, it’s great to know that I’m not alone with this!
@nurse_nettie, thanks for that info on the timeframe of when to pee, and for clarifying that it isn’t contagious – at least you don’t have to worry about pain for your partner. Its good to know that the recommended thing to do is to pee immediately – so thank…[Read more]

Hey @potplant, this is definitely a complicated situation, thanks for being comfortable to share it!
I feel like this always happens to me when I am having sex for the first time with a new partner. It’s definitely tricky to manage, and ideally, you would want to have the conversation before you are in the bedroom so you can avoid it altogether!…[Read more]

Hey @patchelor, thanks for making this post!
I completely agree with @potplant on this one, it is definitely not worth having sex just to not be a virgin. I do regret rushing into losing my virginity when I younger. I find it very admirable and even sexy when someone waits to have sex, and for the right reasons too! – always better to save…[Read more]

COVID has been hitting us all pretty hard, and with new cases still increasing, I am starting to realise that I won’t be able to meet new people the way I have been prior to all the restrictions. I have never used dating apps before, but now they seem more and more appealing…
I was wondering what people’s experience has been with using online…[Read more]

Although you don’t only get UTIs from not peeing after sex, the only time I seem to get them is when I forget to pee after fingering/penetrative sex!
To be honest, most of the time I don’t want to be jumping right out of bed after sex to pee, so I take the risk more often than I’d admit, especially as I don’t want to ruin the mood for the other…[Read more]

Thanks so much, Nurse Nettie! That’s really helpful, I will definitely speak with my GP about it- as from what I know I don’t have any medical conditions!!

Hi Nurse Nettie!
I wanted to know, can having an irregular period actually be your ‘regular’?
(For some context): I was on the pill for around a year and went off it around 6 months ago. Since then, my periods have been whacked – I went 100 days without bleeding, then 25 then back to around 50, although when I told my GP they said it was just my…[Read more]

@aunt_flo, I totally relate to quarantine being a perfect time to let body hair grow out! I was the same as you and have been shaving since I was a young teen and it has actually been so awesome seeing my body hair grow its own way!
I totally agree that having a partner mention my grooming during sex is the biggest mood killer ever! For the most…[Read more]

1. Ooooo there are too many songs to choose from, but here’s one new song I’ve been loving: Off track, by The Features!!
2. Summer means my birthday so I think I’ll have to go with that! Although I love beanie season!
3. Short answer is that I won’t. I am scared of nearly everything and have zero survival skills, but I’ll…[Read more]
