Yes I am counting down till the day I can get tested, for the peace of mind.
I’ve spoken to people and all mentioned I’m actually overthinking / over worrying over nothing due to anxiety.
Well it was my first time and definitely everything is enhanced. There won’t be a next time!
On the other STD, I did receive unpro…[Read more]
Nurse_Nettie replied to the topic Say goodbye to anal sex… in the forum Sex & Relationships 3 years, 6 months ago
Thanks @sextronaut, those are great points & useful links!
There is absolutely no reason people need to fear anal sex. It’s not for everyone, but it can be perfectly safe. STIs aren’t a spontaneous result of sex. One person has to have the infection first in order to pass it on to someone else. If both people get tested first, you can rule that…[Read more]
I wish I asked on the spot / tested with water but I did not. It would have eliminated all the headache and anxiety.
It was actually an encounter with a worker. Hence exercising extra caution (by changing) makes sense.
I’ve checked with numerous friends & also forums which also said it did not break. It must be my mind just p…[Read more]
Thanks for the detailed answer.
The penis couldn’t fully fit into the old one after going limp. Was a little unsure (shocked) when she immediately said to change a new one.
Condom tip is laying flat on one side while the penis tip (shrunk) in the center.
I honestly don’t think it broke but the anxiety is swallowing me up wit…[Read more]
Hey @sextronaut — thanks for feedback. I was told it’ll shred and mine didn’t. Seriously hope it did not break (been anxious about this ever since)
@nurse_nettie — thanks for the risk assessment. As I’ve been told, it’s also a lower risk for receiver (+ the short brief duration). It’s been close to 2 and a half week without symptoms, whi…[Read more]
Nurse_Nettie replied to the topic Am I At Risk? in the forum Sexual Health 3 years, 6 months ago
@rodeo14 and @sextronaut, if your not sure if the condom broke or not, having an STI test will give peace of mind. Be reassurred that the risk of STIs from receiving oral sex is lower than giving oral sex. That’s because saliva is the only body fluid a person is exposed to (like kissing). The best time to have an STI test would be 2 weeks after it…[Read more]
GoldenRose replied to the topic Flavoured condoms in the forum Sexual Health 3 years, 6 months ago
That’s actually a really interesting point @sextronaut! I didn’t even consider the fact that the extra chemicals may cause infections. Will probably steer clear of them actually then, I too have a sensitive vag haha.
That sounds like a fun job! Definitely let us know what you think of them. I’ve actually never used lube either tbh.

@sextronaut IT’S CALLED AUDIOPORN?? This has made my week!!
I am also so with you on wanting to turn the stimulus off once arousal has dissipated, and am totally FASCINATED that you have wanted to keep watching. I’m a little interested now…
Nurse_Nettie replied to the topic Painful Sex, Lowered Sex Drive related to my Combination Pill? in the forum Sexual Health 3 years, 7 months ago
@sextronaut, what @stephaniaaaah wrote is true…the risk of dislodgement of the IUD using a menstrual cup is low. However it’s safer to not use a menstrual cup for up to 8 weeks after IUD insertion. After this time, it should be ok. Take care with the removal (pinching the base of the cup will release the suction at the top near the cervix,…[Read more]

@tea so glad to hear that it went well! Are you still having spotting?? I agree there should be YAY I got a LARC party too 🙂 hopefully once things settle down for you both @sextronaut you’ll really enjoy the benefits of it.
How are you feeling about the ‘string’ I found that a little bit weird feeling it poking out at first but got used to it…[Read more]
Aunt_Flo replied to the topic New Zealand is making hormonal IUD's free! in the forum Sexual Health 3 years, 7 months ago
This is fantastic news @sextronaut!
I definitely think IUDs and other contraceptives need to be much, much cheaper, if not free.
It removes a massive barrier – I imagine paying hundreds of dollars for a form of contraceptive that may not suit someone is turn-off. I’m sure that making it free would allow more people to try and see if it’s sui…[Read more]
tea replied to the topic IUD removal in the forum Sexual Health 3 years, 7 months ago
@sextronaut Oh congratulations on your new contraception! I think there should be parties for that in the same way you’d have a baby announcement hahaha! Do you know how long the spotting is meant to last for?

Wow, amazing news @sextronaut! I think it’s a great start to changing the negative views of HIV. I’d be interested to know how much it’s costing people though, considering the medical fees in the US are grossly high. It would be great if it was rolled out further than just one state too! Normalise HIV so we can have more discussions about…[Read more]

GoldenRose replied to the topic What is ethical porn? in the forum Sex & Relationships 3 years, 8 months ago
I’ll have to check out Erika Lust then!
@sextronaut that’s a really good point about biting the bullet when it comes to paying, I feel like that would be the main barrier for people accessing ethical porn especially when there are loads of free options available but I think it’s worth it.
@aunt_flo that’s so true! How good would it be to see…[Read more]
tea replied to the topic No girl friend but craving sex – what to do? in the forum Sex & Relationships 3 years, 8 months ago
Hey, @ark24 good question! I agree with @sextronaut about the whole masturbation thing. If you’re craving sex, there’s no reason why you can’t just pleasure yourself! If you do desire something more than that, as mentioned, dating apps are probably the way to go! Remember, consent is always needed and is not linear! Consent can be given and…[Read more]
curiousss replied to the topic What is ethical porn? in the forum Sex & Relationships 3 years, 8 months ago
@sextronaut TOTALLY AGREE!!
I love ethical porn! I usually pay (its worth it) for porn from Erika Lust I would totally recommend checking her out. Its really nice to see porn with women actually enjoying themselves and diversity isn’t fetishised. Erika gets it right!

@goldenrose @sextronaut How good are period undies!! I have some on right now. ModiBodi’s are sooo comfy and they work so well? I was sceptical at first but they really do work!!
tea replied to the topic Buying contraception online in the forum Sexual Health 3 years, 8 months ago
@GoldenRose Surely you would need an initial GP consultation before being able to purchase online contraceptives? Like @aunt_flo was saying, there are just too many risks involved, especially in terms of not getting the right contraception for you.
I’m with @sextronaut and think it would be a good thing if it were moderated appropriately because…[Read more]
