Totally interesting how language can change things @alexjameson I’m very much the same in my preferences, but I still use bisexual because I feel like it needs the representation? I think people view bisexual as someone liking x the same as y when it’s not always 50/50. Idk, it’s difficult to put labels on.
Ohh yeah, I definitely have been choosing who to spend my time with more than I did pre-lockdown @explorerdora It’s something that has helped with my energy levels, because some people require more of a charged social battery than others. Does that make sense?
Now that we’re starting to slowly get toward a covid-normal way of life, has anyone else been struggling with getting back into socialising or dating?
It’s only been a few weeks in, but I’m finding socialising very overwhelming! Going from not seeing anyone at all for months and then being able to see even just one person make me pretty…[Read more]

Oh good points here @snoo_53338! Do you think asking would be a good way too or is that too forward? I think subtle signs and body language are a good way to tell if someone is interested in you.
tea replied to the topic Have you ever asked anyone to have an STI test? What was their reaction? in the forum Sex & Relationships 2 years, 2 months ago
I haven’t asked anyone before but someone asked me what my status was and when my last test was before having sex which I thought was great! It’s something I should do more of but I just forget a lot of the time?
tea replied to the topic Article: Women share things they wish men would stop copying from porn in the forum Sexual Health 2 years, 2 months ago
I’m on the hair-pulling train with you @potplant!! It’s not sexy, it just hurts! I’m sure it can be done in a nice soft way, but I haven’t had that happen to me before. I think I’d really like if people communicated more during sex, I feel like that’s a big thing that gets left out in mainstream porn!
I’ve been off of any type of contraception for a while now and it’s been good to connect with my body in a different way. I’ve not had any seriously bad experiences with…[Read more]
“Bleeding from inside the vagina after penetrative sex is called post-coital bleeding, and is more common than you might think. There are plenty of reasons why it might be happening – from vaginal dryness to untreated Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs).”
Have you ever bled during or after having sex? My very first time having sex I did! It…[Read more]
How were you able to move past that relationship @champagnepapi? I’ve been in a few, intimate and non-intimate toxic relationships and it’s always taken someone else to notice something is wrong before I ever ‘woke up’ to what was going on. I found the leaving hard because I was often co-dependant too and lost a sense of self while I was in these…[Read more]
tea replied to the topic How to have a healthy relationship during COVID-19! in the forum Sex & Relationships 2 years, 2 months ago
I’m glad this thread started last year, it’s really comforting to see so many stories from people and how they managed/are managing things! It makes isolation feel a little more normal.
How do you know if a relationship is toxic or not? Wether it’s a partner or a friend.
There’s another thread that talks about letting your friend know when you think something might be wrong, but what if you’re the one in the relationship? What kind of things should you look out for? And what can you do if you find yourself in a toxic relationship?
How old is it normally @yogigirl? I started learning about consent through sex ed class in primary school, I think I was 10 or 11? This was in Western Australia though and I imagine every state has their own “this is when you can learn about consent” starting age.
There’s this mum on Instagram I follow who started teaching her kids about consent…[Read more]
tea replied to the topic COVID-19 extended lockdown – How is everyone feeling? in the forum Hanging Out 2 years, 2 months ago
Hey @yogigirl thanks for sharing your feelings about this. I can definitely relate, for some reason this lockdown has been so much harder on me mentally. Maybe it’s the uncertainty of when it will end? I’m in an LGA of concern too so it’s been hard seeing things on social media about how other areas are treated differently, or have more access to…[Read more]
Hey @balagee69 wether you want to talk or not during sex, I think either is fine as long as everyone is enjoying themselves! If talking too much is something that you’re not into, maybe you could try out other things like, moaning and groaning! There are a lot of different ways you can communicate with your partner, verbally or…[Read more]
tea replied to the topic Have you ever had a condom break? What did you do? in the forum Sexual Health 2 years, 2 months ago
I’ve never had this happen to me before @potplant but I guess a good way to prevent this from happening is to make sure whoever is wearing the condom has the correct size to begin with. It could be a great pre-sex activity too, trying out different types of condoms and flavours and all of that before getting into things!
sooooo not the right time and place to discuss grocery shopping.
LMAO @yogigirl yeah probably not the best place to bring that one up!!! Ooh actually, I never thought about the disconnect between body and mind in that way, of not ‘feeling sexy’ so not being able to ‘act sexy’! I think I’m the same in that way, I don’t really view myself as a…[Read more]
Hey @moniyami, like @allthestars and @yogigirl said it’s totally normal to feel like this in a relationship, especially when you’re just starting to get to know one another. I think communication is really important here, have you tried talking to your boyfriend about it at all? He could feel the same way and it would be a great way to figure out…[Read more]
Okay so first of all if you don’t know what a ‘queef’ is it’s “The sound made when a small amount of air is forced out of the vagina during vaginal penetration or as a result of certain movements.”
The other day I was doing some yoga and this was happening to me a LOT and it was so loud!!! Is this normal? I don’t normally have this happen to…[Read more]
