I’m not sold yet! I agree in so many ways in the above points for personal photos and not wanting to enhance negative perceptions on popularity (mostly because I post photos of plants or food, I’m not after likes.. ;).
But… I used to like seeing how many likes a meme or Betoota article would get, as an idea of who was also agreed with…[Read more]
Just an update!
I’ve been going 1-2 days a week again, so I’ve been getting my ‘gym mojo’ back a little.
I do walks every day at lunch. I’m going overseas in 4 weeks, so I’ve set that as a goal to have 4 weeks at least 3 times a day.
Hey @curiousss , great question.
I hear you about the little things like hairdryer and toilet scrubbing (ew indeed). What I’ve learned over the years is we all have these little intricacies that may not bother us, but bother our partner a lot! As an example… I often don’t do the buttons up on a quilt cover after making it, it doesn’t phase…[Read more]
Hey @tea! Hmm… I’ve actually helped a friends son with a school assignment on this topic recently. They were asked to create a new form of contraception for science class.
My idea was a spray on condom, like the adhesive spray on band aids. His idea (school student) was a male version of the pill. What I suggested at the time was, if a CIS man…[Read more]
Lately I’ve been doing 30 minute walks at lunchtime which is good, our company is good at supporting this. That’s been helpful to get me out of work and doing some basic exercise. Sunday afternoon long hikes have been good as well!
I’m going overseas in about 5 weeks so I’m going to try push my self to set a target to go 3 days a week before I go!
The six sessions were a mix of cardio each day, and weights alternate. I wasn’t going too hard, just good post work gym.
I try to keep minimum 3 days, but it’s been easy to not do a single thing in this beautiful cold weather! haha.
I’m way out in the country, so we don’t have many gym options here. I’m still recovering my recent shoulder…[Read more]
I’ve fallen off the Gym wagon this autumn/winter! 🙁 Not uncommon I imagine. I went back in December, I went around 6 days a week, I lost 7kg and got back to a great routine and diet will still enjoying treats.
I had a dislocated shoulder in March and that put me off a bit. I’ve been slowly trying to get back and have only…[Read more]
Hey @sextronaut! Thanks for sharing your post.
I’m also someone who suffers with a lot of internal homophobia (a lot less than before) as I grew up in a small town.
I was very confident in wanting to come out, and did at age 13 to friends, then 16 with family and school. Reflecting on all of this now I always said that it wasn’t too bad and I…[Read more]
Hey @tea! It’s definitely the time of year for Cold Sores. When your body is run down, they always want to come out.
The answer is yes and no. Cold Sores are caused by the Herpes Simplex virus and there are two main types in which 1 (the most common) is on the mouth, which we know as a cold sore. Type 2; Genital Herpes is mostly within the…[Read more]
Thanks for the reply @tea. I’ve also been in a spot in my late 20’s where a really close friend seemed to distance himself after he got into relationship, so I decided not to look too much into it, but sometimes I think about reaching out and asking; “maybe I wasn’t a good friend to you sometimes, and I’m sorry?”
I still have a really strong…[Read more]
Will replied to the topic What's the worst sex-related injury you've heard of? in the forum Sex & Relationships 1 year, 1 month ago
My friend (seriously my friend, not a “well. I have a friend…” haha) had his frenulum (tissue fold under head of penis) tear last week during sex!
He said isn’t wasn’t that painful, but it freaked him out as you can imagine, as it was bleeding, etc.
He’s all good now, rested and didn’t use it to let it heal. 🙂
Thanks @aunt_flo! Such a great reply, and definitely can relate to how I’ve been feeling about it all.
I was saying to another close friend, since the cut off, I’ve actually not thought about making contact and have been a lot happier, it’s almost been a year now. It was just like what you were saying, about talking at each other, and no…[Read more]
I wanted to ask around to see what people think about their friendships throughout school and after.
I recently had a fall out with a friend who I was so close with all through school and now for a while after school. We’ve known each for about 20 years, and recently I decided it was time to end it. I almost treated it like a bad…[Read more]
Well… Where do I start? haha.
I think the first and most important part is to learn about your bum and your body. Why is this important? Anal sex should be enjoyed, be comfortable and pleasurable, if it’s not, you have to change things up.
Maintaining good diet (smash that peppermint tea! :P) and doing a poop just before sex should be good…[Read more]
I think sometimes even with the best availability of free STI testing in some countries, including ours, there are still people who don’t see the need to test.
When I was in Brazil (Rio), I was discussing this with a guy I met, and he was quite aware about getting a test. He knew about how much he should test, and how to access PrEP…[Read more]
I use a mix, mostly the free condoms from ACON which have a lube packet included, the glyde type (same as ACON) free from the sexual health clinics, or Skyn as well.
Don’t forget you can get different sizes, as most people go regular usually, not knowing there are different sizes. If you size with either tight fit, regular or large,…[Read more]
PLANTS! YES. The only thing that is sticking! But I agree with sextronaut. I’m trying to be more social.
I recently moved to a new town, so I put my self out there and these are the one off hobbies;
1. Joined mixed netball for a season,
2. Joined the local community theatre and did a play. It was a huge commitment, so need a little break.
