I’ve definitely just let it all grow out more than usual the last few months. In summer I like to shave my legs but I wish I had never started (thanks patriarchy, beauty standards and great advertising on behalf of shaving companies haha) because I reckon that my legs wouldn’t be as hairy – but that could be a myth.
I haven’t shaved my pits for…[Read more]
@goldenrose I just looked back at your first post and yes sounds like you’ve come such a long way! It’s so great that our voices are here right now and on platforms like TikTok to share the struggle. Just in the last few days I’ve become so much more positive about my sexuality knowing that others have had the same experience.
100% love this @aunt_flo and think that I am experiencing many of the same thought you did in that ‘being silly’ or ‘attention seeking’
The reality is like you say is that when I came out to my boyfriend he was like that’s rad, I am happy for you and nothing changes for us and it felt SO DAMN RIGHT AND GOOD AND MADE SENSE!!! Just to vocalise it…[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]
Great post @goldenrose I’ve more recently been understanding what Pansexual is because I’ve decided that that that’s my sexual identity / orientation which is kind of cool for me, YAY!!
So for me my sexual / romantic attraction isn’t based on men or women attraction. I had previously been a closeted bi-sexual/closeted confused til recently. I…[Read more]
Soo I follow Bye Filepe on Instagram and apparently heaps of people on Tinder just don’t care about social distancing and are still trying to hook up. Has anyone experienced this or heard this?
When I was on Tinder and Bumble I definitely had so many amazing text conversations or phone conversations where i’d be laughing and think i had this…[Read more]

@goldenrose Paint and Pinot is a great idea – I do it on my own already does that count LOL
hang in there for that Centrelink!
I need to get into animal crossing haha
Sorting out my books is up there on my list!
FaceTime wines has become the new normal for me and my mates as well.
It’s been a great opportunity for me to get all those pesky jobs done like going through my wardrobe and hanging pictures on the wall. Hope you are all staying sane RN.
haha @goldenrose ‘the stuff that gets around the sides of condoms’ – I think it was Hannah
I got 100% PHEW!
I used to believe was that condoms would protect you from all STIs.
This is a little embarrassing to admit but I also used to think that you only needed condoms for penis/vagina sex (aka to prevent pregnancy) but oral and anal was okay…[Read more]

Hey @curiousss oh my, my partner and I have been living together for 4 months now and heck is isolation weird and funny (and sometimes super annoying) to do together.
I am working from home full time at the moment and my partner has gone onto a one week on / one week off roster which means we are home together for 9 days straight every other…[Read more]

@goldenrose I am SO sorry to hear that you’ve been stood down. Have you registered your intent to claim with Centrelink? I know it is a bit of a wait to get the $ unfortunately (some time in April?)
I agree so much – the productivity ‘porn’ on Instagram is doing my head in and I’ve decided to only look at stuff on the internet that makes me…[Read more]
so great to hear you had a good experience @earthmama
I understand that sexual health testing is only being offered to people who have symptoms or are from higher risk groups so if you don’t have symptoms you shouldn’t go to your clinic and order an online test instead.
@nurse_nettie will be able to answer this for sure though!
Holy heck. What a time to be trying to date online.
I saw a post from one of my favourite artists that said ‘if they try to hook up during social distancing it’s a giant red flag‘ . What do you think about this – do you agree?
I’ve heard of people arranging video chat first dates!
If you were already dating someone there is…[Read more]

Hey mods and Play Safe forum participants,
I wanted to start a thread where people can get together to talk about how you are looking after yourself even with all the uncertainty and the new normal of staying home.
So here’s some helpful links to keep pinned to the top:

you are so right @earthmama I really wanted to to focus on key body love points like reminding myself that my value is not based on my looks and also to reassess my health goals.
The first week after the comment was…[Read more]
