Hey @curiousss, @sextronaut, @will, @tea I am SO LATE to get into Sex Education but watched the first episode last night and loved it! It shows such a range of sexual orientations, teen situations and ‘coming of age’ stories. Found it so relatable – memories of being an awkward teenager navigating relationships and experimenting for the first t…[Read more]
I recently came across a tiktok which went along the lines of “would you still be non-binary if you were born a cis man?” and honestly that one shook me…[Read more]

Hi @curiousss not sure if this is super relevant anymore because were sort of stepping out of lockdown in NSW at least #prayfornothirdwave #wearamask #gettested. But…
Something that my partner and I did that helped bring a little bit of spice to our relationship during COVID19 lockdown and isolation period was being a bit more experimental in…[Read more]
I’m so glad someone has spoken about this!
My story is I’ve been on the contraceptive pill for the last 12 years (since I was 16), but in the last 2…[Read more]

Hey @sextronaut and @aunt_flo, I completely agree with running out of things to talk about! When you are both out at work for the day, even if it’s little things that happened you still have something to share and ask “how was your day?” When you are in the same house all day it gets a little tricky! I think it’s all been about realising…[Read more]
I totally relate with you @sextronaut. I think the 20’s can be an odd in-between time of life for group friendships, because most people are looking around, trying on new careers, moving to different places, some even settling into relationships and …babies?? I think it is so important to normalise the struggle and recognise that social media…[Read more]
I totally agree with this sentiment!
Honestly with the busy hub-bub hum-drum of modern life where we are constantly on the go, it can be so hard to make time for / put the energy into meeting new people or reconnecting with old ones. I’m really craving going out and meeting new people and just social activities in general but I…[Read more]
After posting in what is pansexual I had raised the question am I queer enough?
Thank you so much @sextronaut for starting this thread and I really feel all of your comments here. I feel like because I am in a ‘straight’ relationship that I am not queer enough. I realise that this is part preference or programming and despite having…[Read more]
Hahaha @sextronaut that’s amazing! I can’t believe you also fit so much more in there haha
One of the Condom Myth questions “True or False – You can use massage oil as lube with condoms” I remember always getting confused about types of lube because of breaking down condoms and silicone sex toys! Anyone else every get confused about this?
I know…[Read more]
@sextronaut Haha that’s amazing!! I have heard of people putting a ridiculous amount of oranges in one before and the condom still not breaking. I feel like an image of that would make a great condom ad (and would help to bust the myth about size!)

@sextronaut I’m the same with running out of things to say! I’ve resumed a few hobbies that I’ve left behind, so it’s nice to have that to talk about, but I never realised how much of what I have to say comes from my day-to-day routine.
I don’t live with my partner, but we do stay over one another’s houses a lot, and we both live with parent…[Read more]
Hi @sextronaut @stephaniaaaah…did you know that almost one in five women with an IUD can’t feel their strings? True. It’s because the strings can bundle or get tucked in the cervical opening or vaginal folds or they can be cut short too. It’s great that you’re aware of your menstrual changes. One of the concerns about not feeling the strings is…[Read more]
@sextronaut glad things have settled down for you, sounds like quite the adjustment in the beginning and a dry tampon. UGH. How great is it when your period slows right down (mine only lasted a day I think!)
Oh no about the strings, I found it good to be able to feel them but it was also a little bit weird for me. I think they can get them out…[Read more]
Hey @tea thanks for being you and sharing with us. It’s okay to not be sure about where you are at.
I’m cis so I don’t understand the struggle with identity around gender but have had to reevaluate around sexuality (being pansexual not the straight person I thought I was!). My sister and cousin are both transgender and they’ve been on pretty…[Read more]
Thank you so much for sharing your experience @tea. I can hear your deep resounding questions in everything you wrote, and I just want to pop on to offer you a big virtual hug of support and recognition.
I have never experiencing body dysmorphia in regard to gender, but certainly with sexuality in terms of not fitting into the mold of how my…[Read more]
Thank you for all your responses! It can definitely be a time of fruitful leisure and an opportunity to try new things, but if I’m honest, that’s probably only 10% of the time for me…the rest is spent in some kind of worry. Go you @sextronaut !! Well done for taking a risk. I too, am someone who thrives in routine, so I am with you 100%. I LOVE…[Read more]
