Hey @curiousss, @sextronaut, @will, @tea I am SO LATE to get into Sex Education but watched the first episode last night and loved it! It shows such a range of sexual orientations, teen situations and ‘coming of age’ stories. Found it so relatable – memories of being an awkward teenager navigating relationships and experimenting for the first t…[Read more]
I really relate to this struggle Will. I also came from a small and somewhat homophobic town, and it was hard growing up when my sexuality was at odds with the social norm. As a consequence I really had a similar experience to you…
I think with other gay men its kind of hard to get along with everyone. Because were kind of expected to…[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.
One thing that I’ve noticed since the removal of likes is that every third post is an advertisement and because of the removal of likes they blend into your feed more easily – I’ve nearly like sponsored posts on a couple of occasions and I’m like ‘you tricky lil operator Zuckerberg’. I am cynical about the motive and think it has to do with…[Read more]
I think a really big part of it comes down to communication, which sextronaut covered really well.
– Share expectations and talk about things quickly so resentment doesn’t build up.
– Try not to assign values to things they do/don’t do (Like Will’s partner saying his not doing up the quilt was…[Read more]
I’ve also fallen off the wagon @will, and struggling to find something that works for my schedule that I really love and will stick to. I reeeeaally want to try pilates but the gyms in sydney are so expensive. Does anyone have any ideas on how to try it out cheaply?
Oh wow was an amazing thread this has turned into!! Thanks for sharing your story, everyone! I’m so happy to hear we’re all on our own journey of self discovery.
Thank you so much for sharing your story @will! I’m glad you were able to find a better place within yourself to be more ‘you’ even if that can take some time. That group session sounds so good!! I’ll have to have a look into that – I’m sure there are spaces like Twenty10 who would run something similar, but not too sure. I’ll look into it some…[Read more]
Wow 6 days a week @will ! How long were your sessions? Have you considered trying an alternative style gym?
I go to a bouldering gym, which is great if bouldering works out for you (if you haven’t heard of it/tried it, it’s like rock-climbing but without ropes!) I go to nomad – and it’s great because they’re local, have a regular gym section and…[Read more]
@will Thank you so much! This makes me feel a lot better about my outbreaks! They seemed to have calmed down for now but I’ll keep in mind to be a bit cautious when they’re out and about!

Had to look up the term of a penis cramp and what it consists of and I can confirm it’s totally a thing. Had it happen a few times but never to the point where I had burst a blood vessel down there.
All my injuries related to sex are from silly things like slipping over whilst trying to do it in the shower etc.
Holy moly accidental anal. I had…[Read more]
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]
@kitkat Omg, I didn’t even think about prep!! I wonder if you need an enema beforehand?? Hmm,,,,
@catdog @will Thank you so so much for your input!! TORPEDO BAY @will I’m screaming omg!! Ooh good point about the organs moving as you do, I didn’t even think about that but yeah a good position totally makes sense! Thank you so much for giving solid…[Read more]
