@tea is that a question for me lol 🙂
Down to Test has been doing testing at 8 festivals a year in NSW (big and small) but I know that local teams and NGOs will do sexual health promotion at any festival they are able to get into! No idea what it looks like across the country but can find evidence of sexual health promotion happening at NSW…[Read more]
@goldenrose that’s so exciting for you! How long are you heading away for?
I try to get away every year and one mistake I used to always make was under budgeting for the actual trip, so when I got home I would always be broke or on a shoestring for the last week!
Biggest thing to save money is don’t drink alcohol or drink out at all. It’s…[Read more]
@tea YAY for bullet journal updates – cannot wait to see them
I’m with @aunt_flo for going to bed earlier and planning for a Japan holiday (when are you going)?
Not massive on setting resolutions for myself because I always fail at them haha but I really enjoy applying the ‘begin again’ mentality and that we have the power to do that at…[Read more]
@tea it’s such an amazing piece – it’s all life sized and I am not sure how many there are in total but it was along the length of a a couple of corridors! I did buy some vulva souvenirs from the museum shop to give as gifts 🙂
@sextronaut ! Number 3 tip – Thank you! I would get annoyed because blood would come out and I’d put my finger in to check it was around my cervix and I couldn’t work out what was wrong
@earthmama oh are they any good? does it feel weird like you don’t have a barrier between your period and your pants??

My year 10 sex education – which being a private religious school – taught abstinence only sex ed – and we just looked at anatomical diagrams which like @sextr…[Read more]
steal away @tea ! how did you go smashing out the casual 10k words ?! we are definitely cheering you on and cannot wait to read the end result (whether you finish or not doesn’t matter!) what a great challenge, i’m in for next year 🙂
YAAAAAAS @tea LOVE LOVE LOVE this – can you please start a thread about this in sex and relationships – I was having the conversation the other day with a colleague about being (properly) single for 3 years after I got my heart broken for the first time and learning to be totally cool with it and that I am deliberately single (not because I…[Read more]
@tea when I had the Mirena I didn’t get a period either! Menstrual cups are honestly revolutionary so no it’s not bad – I love using mine (and are probably quite attached to it hahaha)
Yes, you can totally sleep with it in, no leaking at all – I had mine in for 12 hours yesterday and not one drop. Everybody is different, and it doesn’t work for…[Read more]
omg I can’t believe I haven’t seen this thread before! I LOVE LOVE LOVE my moon / diva / menstrual cup!
My hot tips
