Being skinny is not a virtue

I am white, middle class and a comfortable size 12 (UK size). I know that I am incredibly privileged. Likewise my husband and children are white, middle class and skinny. Recently my super skinny youngest son has started to make comments about how he doesn’t want to be fat. He pinches his skin and worries that he should lose weight. I have no idea why he has this obsession, but we keep insisting that he is skinny and shouldn’t worry. (He has since stopped talking, so it could just have been a phase.)

Does your partner know you masturbate?

I used to be quite ashamed of masturbating. I didn’t do it very often and when I did, I invariably felt guilty. A quick rub in the shower or under the covers if my husband was away was all I ever managed. That was before I became more liberated and before I started this sex blog.

It seems like since my sex toy reviews have dwindled, my masturbation practices have dwindled with it. Continue reading “Masturbation Month – my progress so far”

Body hair is not unhygienic

Recently I had a discussion with my 8 year old son about body hair. In particular, myy body hair. I am fairly lax when it comes to shaving, especially in the winter. I don’t really see a reason to keep my legs and armpits completely smooth when no one – apart from my husband – is going to see them anyway. Continue reading “Body hair is not unhygienic”

Share our Shit Saturday – 21 April

I have been remiss in posting my #SoSS blog posts – in fact, I have been a bit lax in blogging in general. I am hoping to change that this week, as I am planning to pre-write a few blog posts for this week. I am working hard on finishing my erotic novel, which is where most of my time is going at the moment. Continue reading “Share our Shit Saturday – 21 April”
