Yes @tea I totally know what you mean! What did you think of that show? I know people have different libidos but I found it hilarious that they couldn’t keep their hands off each other for even 24hrs.
I know it’s a bit trashy but I got addicted!
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]
YogiGirl started the topic Different types of female orgasm – how many have you had? in the forum Sex & Relationships 2 years, 3 months ago
I recently read ‘Come As You Are’ by Emily Nagoski and she talks about the many types of female orgasms you can have: Clit, g-spot, anal, toe sucking, touch. I found this article too which talks about what an orgasm is.
I’ve been really keen to try a tantric sex session and start to incorporate some massage and breathwork to reach climax.…[Read more]
I recently broke up with my partner and we’re finding it hard to maintain healthy boundaries. When we first broke up (about two months ago) we still spent lots of time together and were still having sex, so we got back together. We’ve done that another 3 times now and it’s really difficult for my mental health not knowing whether we’re off or…[Read more]
Hey @explorerdora, I LOVE the term ‘energy vampire’. I think my ex was one actually. We were so mismatched on energy levels and I was always trying to stay high energy to perk him up, then feeling deflated as i’d spent my energy trying to make someone else happy. Lesson learned – we’ve got to protect number one first!
I’ve had a big life change r…[Read more]
Hey @12345, i’ve only just discovered this thread but I know exactly how you must have been feeling. Hopefully you’re feeling better about the diagnosis now?
I’ve been living with herpes type 2 for 7 years now. At first, I was totally horrified and thought it would change my life, but I’ve since had some amazing dating experiences. I always make…[Read more]
Hey @tea, that’s so interesting that there’s been no research on it for 20 years.
I feel like it’s a bit of a novelty thing because of the way it’s spoken about, almost like a challenge. I’ve never done it myself but am intrigued as to how to get there. Do you think everyone is capable of it? Or, like our bodies all being different, maybe some…[Read more]
I’m really struggling this time around too @tea and @explorerdora. With the last couple of lockdowns I came out the other side and was excited to get back to going out and seeing people, however this time I think I’ve got so used to my own company that I feel ‘safe’ at home and don’t have the same drive to go out. It feels very strange to be this…[Read more]
@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.
