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.

Let’s not stop talking about sex

“You talk about sex as if it is something normal.”

My sister said this to me, a while ago, after we had spent an evening talking about sex. As if it is something normal. I knew what she meant, of course. In our family, when we grew up, sex wasn’t talked about. It was something you did when you were married, in order to have children, nothing else. Continue reading “Let’s not stop talking about sex”

69 is not my magic number

69 road sign

The more I become sexually aware, and the more I talk about sex with other women, the more I realise there is no “acceptable standard” of sex. I know it’s a bit weird to be saying this in 2018, and at the age of 40(ish), but until I started blogging about sex about a year and a half ago, I never really talked to anyone about sex.

Masturbating together: not for everyone?

Masturbation Month has come to an end and I have to say, I didn’t do too bad this time around. Sure, I didn’t masturbate every day, but I still masturbated more than I usually do, so that is a win for me. I have to say that I also traveled during this time, which I always use as a good excuse to masturbate like crazy. Continue reading “Masturbating together: not for everyone?”

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.
