Does anyone have any tips on how to start a good morning routine? I’m really struggling with this lately.
I find it’s difficult to get out of bed when it’s cold and then I end up sleeping in more! Which isn’t so bad, except it’s affecting the rest of my day. I want to wake up early and be more productive but I’m struggling on motivating myself…[Read more]
Omg @butterfly01 I am SO glad you posted about this! I was just thinking of starting a thread about this too, because the exact same thing is happening to me!
Maybe @nurse_nettie can shed some light on what might be going on a bit more. But for me I think it’s just sweat?? Sweat and friction? I’m not sure but I’ve done all the same things as you…[Read more]

Thank you for this post @aunt_flo! This gives me so much anxiety honestly. For a long time, I thought you weren’t allowed to do something like this, to be honest!! Then I learnt that consent isn’t linear and can be revoked at any time.
It took me a while to build up the courage to say anything though. But now it’s okay! I just stop the person and…[Read more]
Conversations about anything sex-related with a partner is so so important! I’m glad you have open conversations with getting tested and using condoms @ekoorb9!
Totally agree with the importance of being open to boundaries! Consent isn’t linear! It can be given and withdrawn at any time! So so important to remember.
@kit I really need to drink more water in general tbh! I’ve started keeping a glass of water nearby when I have sex now, just in case I start to really sweat it out haha
Just thinking about that shooting poop pain omg – how scary is it!!!! Sometimes it happens to me in public and I feel like I am Truly Dying!! But I can’t move and then I’m also terrified I might poop right then and there! Truly terrifying times..
Totally agree about not seeing the ‘normal’ as much as we need to @aunt_flo! I guess if a range of genitalia were shown during sex ed at school that might help the stigma a little? Something that’s not so self-seeking like an art exhibition anyway.
I really love how the artist, Aurora, talks about masturbation. Have you heard of her/seen her @catdog? She talks about it so casually during interviews and it catches people off, guard. It’s just so natural to her, I love it!
I think friendships are just a type of relationship anyway, so having a ‘break-up’ in that sense is just necessary sometimes. People can grow apart, people can change, people can no longer be good for you. I think it’s great that you were able to recognise the warning signs @will! Actually, I think this is something we should discuss as a society…[Read more]

Omg @goldenrose !! I hope you came out of it okay! I’ve had a few friends who’ve had ‘accidental’ anal that way!
When they say you learn a new thing every day, they mean it. Frenulum. A word I’ll probably never use again. @will So glad your ..friend is okay after, what sounds like, quite a traumatic experience! Ahh, how does that even happen? I…[Read more]
I have cold sores again!!! My mouth friends for life… but I was wondering, is a cold sore the same as genital herpes?
I’ve had two (TWO!!!!) over the last week, one after the other, so annoying!! Anyway, because I’ve had active sores, I’ve been abstaining from oral sex and getting my mouth all up in someone’s business.
My impression is…[Read more]
@catdog So I was just going through some of my desk stuff and came across a phone number, which made me think of the story behind it!
I was looking around a bookshop once and someone approached me to say hello, introduce themselves and then gave me their phone number written down on a piece of paper. They said to call if I wanted to go for coffee…[Read more]
“Used to think all sex was bad, apparently, I just didn’t like having sex with my ex.”
Hahahaha omg yep! I feel that one. When funny things happen it can be a bit weird in the moment but it’s something to laugh at later. My current partner did something weird on our first date – when we ended up sleeping together. I had my nipples pierced and…[Read more]
Definitely a controversial, yet totally valid topic @catdog! I think going up to someone and having a chat is appropriate if there are good intentions. Like, a normal chat would be okay – but going up to someone and telling them they look hot or something wouldn’t be okay.
Respecting people’s boundaries are something to consider too, so if…[Read more]

What’s the worst sex-related injury you’ve heard of? I’m talking things that should definitely not have happened in the bedroom happening.
I started a previous thread about a similar topic where I asked if you should exercise before sex to help with any post-sex cramping: “Exercise before sex?” Which was good because now I know eating a pre-sex…[Read more]
I don’t think you can masturbate TOO much – like, it would really only be a problem if it were interfering with your daily routine. Cancelling plans to masturbate. Not eating to masturbate. That kind of thing. Otherwise, I think it’s okay to go all out as much, or as little as you like!
