I have to stop trying to be all things to all people

strong woman

I am a highly organised person. I am also a bit of a perfectionist. Look for example at my commitment to the Summer 100 Sex Blogging Challenge. We are almost halfway through the challenge and I have blogged every day. Some days I didn’t feel like blogging. Some days I thought I had nothing to say. But I kept going, because I am committed to writing as close to 100 blog posts in three months as I can. Continue reading “I have to stop trying to be all things to all people”

Not everything women do is for the benefit of men: a rant

independent woman

Sorry, I just have to rant a bit. This rant has been brought on by a tweet that has done the rounds on Twitter recently. I can’t find it anymore now, but it was a beauty tip or make up account saying that research shows that men like women with less make up.

We need more men to speak out on issues of sexism and sexual harassment. But we need these male allies to do so supportively.

Sex blogging is liberating

Heart of stones on beach

I love being a sex blogger. I haven’t even been doing it for that long and I have met so many awesome women who are in the same boat as me. The sex blogging community is far friendlier and less intimidating than I thought it would be. That has become even more apparent since my participation in Victoria’s Summer 100 sex blogger challenge. Continue reading “Sex blogging is liberating”

I am actually old enough to remember a time before the internet. When I started university the internet was a very new thing. I had a computer at home, but no internet connection, so if I wanted to be online, I had to go to the university. Social media didn’t exist and we barely had mobile phones, let alone smart phones.
