So I was recently overseas for a few weeks and it got me thinking about accessing sexual health care when travelling. How do you have safe sex while travelling?
If I have unprotected sex in NSW, I know I can easily go out to get the morning-after pill or go to a sexual health clinic like family planning for any information. But what if…[Read more]

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]

Hey, @snapesonaplane thanks so much for sharing your experience! I’m so sorry you’ve been having such a hard time being able to have comfortable sex, I’m hoping @nurse_nettie can offer some advice on the more painful side of things.
I’ve had a similar experience, the pill made my libido pretty much non-existent! I got the IUD afterwards which…[Read more]
I’m so glad I’m not alone in this @aunt_flo! Also update: I had a chat about my anxieties with my partner and I was able to orgasm!!! I think stress and anxiety were definitely at play here.
Do you have any good coping mechanisms for it? Talking it out seems to work for me but what if you’re not comfortable doing that?

Ohh the implanon sounds so friendly @aunt_flo! Are you able to feel it through the skin? I really loved my IUD because I could just forget about it and I didn’t get my period for the most part. I also really love condoms! They’re easy to carry and have a ton of uses – plus they help protect me against STI’s!
It’d be cool if GP’s/clinics gave you…[Read more]
@goldenrose I love that it gets reviewed by a doctor! Yeah you’re right about it being there to help bridge the gap, even if it isn’t the most effective way of purchasing contraception, it would get the conversation going on how to give better health care access to everyone.
@goldenrose Porn week was so good! My gf and I ended up watching some female centric/orientated ametaur porn as a result (though I really can’t help watching it and laughing??). Ethical porn is so important! Sex work is real work and deserves credit and payment!
I don’t usually buy porn though, just because I find it difficult to watch because I…[Read more]
hahaha omgggggg @sextronaut omg I’m so sorry that happened to you (I feel bad for laughing but it’s a good story omg haha) You poor thing! Thank goodness it drained and you didn’t need to panic any of your colleagues!
So we’ve had similar topics on orgasms – like ‘can’t orgasm‘ (which has since had some user information deleted) but I’m struggling to find anything helpful for me. I’m hoping I’ll get some answers here!
For maybe the past two weeks I’ve been finding it almsot impossible to orgasm? Sex is fun and fine but I just can’t seem to finish off? I’ve…[Read more]
Such a good poitn @curiousss, so many of the mental health provides I follow have been providing information regarding climate anxiety and coping stratergies. I don’t really experience it too much, but I think that’s because I’m not of ‘developing age’ where I feel like the anxiety would be strongest. I can’t even imagine being five years old and…[Read more]

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]
I love the new changes, though I never used Instagram much myself – I think it’s really important in helping young people from engaging in ‘comparison culture’ too much.
@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.
@earthmama Omg!!! I am so following this thread, I really want to get into some cardio but maybe rollerblading instead? Running is just so hard!!!
The tips from @stephaniaaaah are really helpful though! Thank you!! My gf agrees with the meditation thing too actually, she says it’s ‘soothing’ which I can’t really get into myself!!
I really love…[Read more]
@mintmilano @stephaniaaaah Thanks so much for sharing your experiences! Hmm yeah, I think with the queer culture there’s a lot of pressure to perform/look a certain way to ‘fit in’ with the crowd. Personally I think that it’s all the quirks that make everyone so beautiful. Yesssss!!! Agreed. (Also, so cute)!
