The end of summer

I can’t believe it’s September already, how has the summer gone by so fast? Sadly the end of summer also means the end of the Summer 100 Blog Challenge. This year we had 19 participants who actively posted blog posts during the challenge. I always appreciate getting to know new bloggers and this was an excellent way for me to read many new blog posts. Continue reading “The end of summer”

Don’t be so serious!

I have a new banner for my website. I am not that good at taking evocative photos and I am rubbish at drawing things, so I decided to commission two artists to create my website banner and Twitter avatar. I didn’t really provide very detailed instructions and I didn’t proof the banner while the artists were in the process of making it. I wanted to be surprised. Continue reading “Don’t be so serious!”

Taking up space in a men’s world

I grew up with the belief that men are superior to women. It wasn’t just my parents who taught me that: at every turn in my life, society made sure I knew damn well that I should shut up and listen to men. Things haven’t changed. Especially at work, it is abundantly clear that men receive preferential treatment. Ideas proposed by me are shut down, but when my male colleague proposes the same idea a day or two later (or sometimes in the same meeting), it’s greeted with praise and enthusiasm.

Thank you all for supporting my blog! Continue reading “It’s giveaway time!”

Why good sex education is important

Summer 100 Blog Challenge

The theme for the sixth and last round of the Summer 100 Blog Challenge is Sex Education. Sex education seems to be a hot topic, both in the UK and in the US. Sadly, the people clamouring the most about sex education are the people who want to limit what our children will learn about sex. And that is a bad trend.

The importance of sex toy reviewers

sex toys

My sex blog started out as a mixture of personal confessions and ramblings about sex and sex toy reviews. I reviewed quite a few sex toys, although nothing in the region of more seasoned sex toy reviewers. I really enjoyed reviewing sex toys in the beginning, but after a while the allure wore off a bit.

Your partner isn’t responsible for your happiness

tangled limbs

A few days ago I wrote about how hubby and I keep our relationship going. Since posting that article, I had a few more thoughts on the subject. And in particular around relationships and happiness. Of course we all want a partner with whom we can be happy. But you can’t make your partner responsible for your happiness. Continue reading “Your partner isn’t responsible for your happiness”

An evening of kink and bondage with the Scarlet Ladies

hands tied up

I love being a member of the Scarlet Ladies. As I don’t live in London, I am an out of town member and I sadly don’t get to go as often as I want. When I do go, though, it’s like a balm for my soul. It’s so great to be among other women who are open about sex. Continue reading “An evening of kink and bondage with the Scarlet Ladies”
