@tea I queef during sex sometimes and it’s sooo embarrassing! Guys I’ve been with don’t care at all though as it’s completely normal but I still find it awkward. I found this article which put me at ease a little. It’s totally normal and often unavoidable.
Were you in a public yoga class when it happened or at home?
I’m not 100% on the age before @tea, but it looks like the idea is that consent ed will be mandatory…so maybe before it was dependant on the school?
I agree, there’s no ‘too young’ when it comes to consent. I think on any topic the more understanding the better, so as we are exposed to different situations we can make an informed decision.

Thanks so much for the support @tea! I’m lucky to live in an area that’s no longer in lockdown, so this weekend I was able to get out and live a semi-normal life, see friends and go to bars. It felt SO strange!!
Sorry to hear you’re in an area of harsher lockdown. Fingers crossed you get some good news soon.
I’ve got a new morning routine of…[Read more]
Such an important question @tea! I haven’t been in a toxic relationship myself but I think of my experience, anything that brings you down and makes you question yourself is a sign that there might a negative sign. You want the other person to make you feel safe, supported and like the best version of you 🙂
Hey @tea, I bled the first time I had sex too but nothing since. I used to think I needed loads of lube and for a long time found sex quite painful but then I realised that the more you relax it becomes way more enjoyable – well that’s what I’ve found anyway!

With another extension in lockdown, i’ve been feeling pretty low. It’s weird…last time I went along with it as we didn’t really know what was around the corner but this time I’ve found myself being more irritable and frustrated at the situation we are in. I’m trying to do lots of exercise (especially yoga and beach walks) to stay positive but I…[Read more]
I’ve just heard that Queensland is starting consent education from age 10. What do you think? I believe the more open conversations the better. But equally, I don’t know how old you are to get sex education in school. Anyone know the usual time to start talking sex?? I suppose consent comes in to everything we do, not just relationships, so it’s…[Read more]
So pleased you brought this thread back @tea. Talking during sex is something I’m SO BAD at. Not like I don’t know how to communicate if something’s good, it’s more that I chat during sex – sooooo not the right time and place to discuss grocery shopping. It was a real frustration with my ex-partner that I couldn’t be ‘sexy’ and dirty talk so to s…[Read more]
Yes totally agree that not everything is appropriate to share @ryanmason. As long as communication is from a place of trust and honesty then I think it’s good for growth. You always want to feel you can open up to your partner and not walk on eggshells, but also respect them and not say things to outwards hurt their feelings.
I’m the same @tea. I try and mix up my workouts depending on my energy levels anyway but especially when I’m on my period. I’m a yogi (can you tell by the name haha) so i’d usually do a slower practice and take a few days off cardio. It’s hard though when you’re really in to exercise. I’m such a high energy person usually so it really knocks me back.
Thanks @mapho and @tea! The relationship is still going strong 🙂 We had a discussion about jealousy just the other day as he finds it really cool that I don’t feel jealous at all when in relationships. He said that he’s feeling a lot better now – I think maybe at the beginning there was a bit of fear around me still being hung up on my ex but n…[Read more]
YES @tea! This week i’ve come on for the first time in 6 months and it’s like I’ve got all the exhaustion of 6 months at once. I tried to do a workout last night and it was virtually impossible as my body was so achey. I’m usually an early riser but had to snooze the alarm this morning (which I NEVER do) and have zero motivation. Glad to hear I’m…[Read more]

Thanks for the suggestions @tea! I’ve just started ‘Come As You Are” by Emily Nagoski and it’s so so good! All about understanding your body and realising you are totally normal. I’m finding it really empowering!
Hey @tea, I think my stereotypical ‘type’ is still very different to who I’m with now. It’s funny as the closer I become with my partner, the more attractive he becomes to me. I guess that comes down to getting to know all the aspects of their personality as well as liking them on a physical level.
It’s going so well!
I’ve been experimenting with foreplay recently and my FAVOURITE has to be getting a massage – who wouldn’t love it though, haha
I really recommend giving it a go with some music, candles and we use coconut oil which smells amazing. It always makes me feel relaxed and my partner loves it too.
One thing I really struggle with is any kind of role…[Read more]
My partner LOVES receiving naughty pics throughout the day and it’s such a foreign idea to me. I’m not hugely confident in myself and really struggle to feel sexy, so usually it takes me a long time to work up the confidence to take a picture – and even then it’s usually with me covering any private parts. I’m all about the angles haha.
Any s…[Read more]

@earthmama. ‘But what about oral ?? Do you ask? Do you just shut your eyes and pretend that STI’s don’t exist?? :/’ good point!! I’m always insistent that we use a condom when having penetrative sex but never even think about oral, which is so silly as herpes can easily be transferred during oral.
I personally don’t think asking to put one on nee…[Read more]
Hey @nurse_nettie, i’ve recently had a referral to get a Mirena inserted due to my ongoing PCOS, however i’m really nervous about it. When I get my cervical screening it’s always very painful and I bleed, so I can only imagine this is going to be worse. I keep putting it off as it sounds like such a horrid process but I know it’s a much safer…[Read more]
