Thanks so much for sharing @mapho and like @nurse_nettie you’re totally not alone in this, it’s soo common for all types of people. This actually happened to me when I had my IUD removed because my hormones were balancing back out, so I had VERY increased sensitivity and would come super quickly when having sex. I think the most important thing is…[Read more]
Yay for not being alone! Hydration is definitely key @yogigirl I try to increase my intake around my period. Hmm, boosting energy levels is still a mystery to me but I find changing the type of exercise I do when I’m on my period really helps! I usually climb as my exercise but I am way too tired to do that during my period so I try to walk or…[Read more]
OMG yes the peppermint feeling is so good @yogigirl or anything which enhances sensation tbh!
Oh good tip about checking ingredients @alaska I forget to do that all the time and it’s so important to check because you need to be sure it’s compatible with the type of toys you’re using! Do you have a favourite brand?
Hey @yogigirl so lovely to hear you’re enjoying this new relationship! Are you still together? Were you able to manage things?
I’ve had this come up before in past relationships and it really just comes down to open communication with your partner. Likely they didn’t have a good time in their previous relationships or it could be something else…[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]
Thank you @champagnepapi and @nurse_nettie! Good to know it’s normal. With pain, I quite often will have intense stabbing pains in my left side, which happens on and off my period. I’ve had an ultrasound and there are no cysts but I think it could be PCOS or maybe endometriosis related? I haven’t been diagnosed with either, and my gynaecologist…[Read more]
Not silly at all @worriedboysure, it’s really great you’re doing your best to stay safe and informed for you and your partner!
What @nurse_nettie said about contraception is so true, that it’s great to see you talking about contraception with your partner. I hope you feel less anxious about things now.
OMG @YogiGirl yes same!!! I’ve definitely had friends who turned into more than after a while!
Did your ‘idea of your type’ change because you became interested in this guy or do you think you got closer just because of your time together?
It’s really interesting how relationships can change like that. It’s always nice when it’s in a positive way too!

Oh good recommendation @YogiGirl !
“Doing It” by Hannah Witton might be a good pick for you? Similar themes to the one by Florence. I also enjoy anything written by Clementine Ford, I always feel empowered reading her books!
A more, science-based read which I 10/10 love is “Bonk” by Mary Roach. I did buy this initially for the cover art, but…[Read more]

My BEST would be going to a climbing gym and not telling my date I was extremely scared of heights at the time! They thought I’d had a horrible time because I got stuck on the wall and was crying a lot, but I actually wanted to go back for more at the end of it haha! It’s now my favourite hobby!
UGH Does anyone else get MASSIVELY exhausted when they’re on their period?? I’ve heard exercising is supposed to help alleviate pain and that sort of thing, but I never have any energy to do anything! When I try to exercise on the first day of my period, I find it the absolute worst! Sometimes I even feel like I could pass out, but I’ll be well…[Read more]
So, I have my period a week early and this hasn’t happened before! I was wondering if this is normal and if anyone else has had this experience?
Some history: I had my IUD out in August last year and haven’t been taking any contraception since. My period has never been irregular and I use the Clue app to track my period. According to the app,…[Read more]
@stephaniaaaah So true about the terminology! Hopefully, it gets updated so there’s less stigma. I love that you share your outbreaks online! When I was feeling a bit down about mine, I went on Instagram to see if people post any there – and they do!! It was a huge confidence booster to know I’m not alone (I mean I know I’m not because pretty much…[Read more]
@earthmama LOCK AND KEY?? That’s so bizarre! And also, so embarrassing for people who are too afraid to ask! I’m glad your friend was with you at the time. I think I’d be the same if I was alone tbh!
I’m sure everyone growing up has big feelings about who they are as a person, who they like, what they like, what they should be like. Well, I’m having a lot of those feelings lately in regards to my gender identity. I’ve never really fit into the box with how I’m ‘supposed’ to present and I have a ton of body dysphoria. When I look in the mirror,…[Read more]
