I agree with all of you! I wish I knew about my clitoris – I thought that ‘fingering’ was just sticking fingers in and out of the vagina over and over, and when this wasn’t pleasurable for me I thought I was broken. I wish I’d known that a) you need some warming up before you get to that part or it won’t be pleasurable at all and b) the clitoris…[Read more]
@tea @purple I’m so here for this. The stigma around non-monogamy makes me so mad! I’m currently practicing monogamy with my partner, but recently when I said to a friend ‘oh I think this person’s (not my partner) hot’ they were like ‘but you have a boyfriend!!’ and got all defensive. My partner and I are very open about being attracted to other…[Read more]
@tea this is amazing!! I’m always so amazed at some clinic’s in the UK that have a shoot on the wall to send all your samples in (watch this Hannah Witton video to see what I mean!), it seems so cool and high-tech but online?!?! That’s next level. I love how much more efficient technology enhancements can make our every day life – particularly…[Read more]
@curiousss I’d recommend a clitoral suction vibrator. If you enjoy clitoral stimulation then you might like one – it feels a bit like oral and doesn’t make me overly sensitive like normal vibrators can sometimes. 🙂
omg @aunt_flo ‘pointy-wointy’ hahahaha!
My niece is growing up with biological names in her household and I couldn’t be more proud! She calls her vulva her ‘wohvah’ currently, I love it so much.
I grew up with ‘fanny’ and ‘willy’, dabbled with the incorrect use of ‘vagina’ but now use the clinical names, vulva and penis! During frisky times I…[Read more]

@aunt_flo I love this topic! It can definitely be a tough conversation to have, particularly with one night stands! I have to say, I’ve honestly never had this chat with anyone except a long term partner, we luckily saw eye to eye with our ‘Plan B’ but I can imagine how difficult it might have been if that was not the case. I don’t know if I’d…[Read more]
I loved Nanette so much!! But ugh I totally feel this. I’m bisexual, and while the ‘B’ is the largest segment of the LGBTQIA+ acronym (percentage of people-wise), it’s often completely wiped from anything mainstream. I’ve recently found a facebook group called ‘is this bi culture?’ that has made me feel like I belong, and has validated my life…[Read more]
@aunt_flo @earthmama I totally get this! I need help too. My most recent hobby is caring for plants, but it’s fairly anti-social. I guess I’m continually encouraged by this hobby because otherwise they’d die and you can see the waste of money right there in front of you! I’d love to join something more physical, but the nervousness stops me from joining.
I’m so jealous! I love Mardi Gras so much but this year didn’t work out so well for me. I got stuck in a crowd on the parade sidelines which was so tightly packed that it was really difficult to get out. I’m super short so I missed most of it, too. 🙁 When it realised it wasn’t ‘sparking joy’ I decided to leave a bit earlier to avoid the public…[Read more]
@tea I love this topic! It took me years to figure out tampons. I would sit in front of a full length mirror for hours trying to get it in, and it would always end in tears! I think it was mostly down to the fear, so my vagina was tensing up too much to let it through. I ended up sitting out of my year 7 swim school because I couldn’t figure it…[Read more]
@andymate I’ve just seen your topic title as sexual self-worth so I’m going to say a bit about that too.
I follow a lot of sex-positive instagram accounts, so when I want to feel a bit more empowered I love looking at them. @whatswrongwithmyvagina is one of my favourites at the moment, as well as @tinamariaelena for some art. I also love to take…[Read more]
Thank you so much for reaching out and trusting our platform to open up to. Like @nurse_nettie I’m also really glad that you’ve identified that your relationship is abusive and that you’re making your way out.
Taking care of yourself at all times is the most important thing. To boost my self worth I like to find someone to talk…[Read more]
My first time ended up being okay. The day before we were trying and trying, and nothing happened because we were far too stressed! The next day, we were just watching a movie, super relaxed. Then we paused it, got to having sex (successfully!) then finished the movie once we’d finished. I didn’t orgasm, and I don’t think he noticed. I didn’t mind…[Read more]
I think it really depends on how someone defines cheating. Personally, I think feeling inadequate or threatened doesn’t count as cheating at all. However, it can definitely cause issues and communication is the key to interrogating thoughts.
I also think there’s a lot of variables! What if…[Read more]

@tea I know right! I was pretty shocked.
This thought has popped into my head recently – and my initial reaction was no, but trying to figure out why I think that way has been the most interesting for me.
For me, I think having independence from your partner and the freedom to explore pleasure by yourself is key to all my relationships. I’d love to hear your opinions on this!
