Re: Want Sex, Can't Get It

Hi Blokesprite! I just wanted to butt-in on the subject of short-term romantic relationships. Heather is totally right, saying to someone from the beginning "this relationship is important to me here and now, and I also believe it will be short term" is a very real option. Acknowledging th...

Re: Masturbating

Hi :) Masturbation is not something we need to be ashamed about! It's a perfectly normal thing for people of all genders and ages to be doing. Everyone masturbates differently, and in the end it's about what feels good for you and your body, so experimenting to find what we like is the only way any ...

Re: Penis Size

Hi Cor Penises come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and it's really common for any one penis to vary a lot between it's most flaccid and most erect states. Plenty of people have a flaccid penis size similar to yours - in fact there is an article here all about how different penises can be: Sh...

Re: What is Something You're Looking Forward To?

This is a lovely thread Sam :) The long-term future seems pretty big and scary right now. I moved abroad over summer and have some short- medium-term things to look forward to related to that, in approximate chronological order: - phoning a good friend this afternoon: we bring out what is best in ea...

Re: Body insecurity

Hi Maeve :) I know that feeling, I used to worry about my appearance and my small breasts and not looking like the girls you see in magazines, which made the idea of being intimate with someone hard. My body hasn't changed since then, but how I feel about it has changed a lot. It's hard when we don'...

Re: How have you met your partners?

I met my first boyfriend in school, and my second was on the same course as my flatmate in university. Since leaving education and moving into the workplace I've had to be a bit more intentional about meeting new people (not just for dating!). I've done some Tinder/online dating which has mostly bee...

Re: Not sure if what happened was abuse

Hi Jellyfish, I'm sorry that you had to go through this. How are you now doing now? Do you feel safely away from him? As Iwanthelp says, people trying to pressure us into sex is not okay. If saying No isn't a real option for us then we can't freely give a Yes; that's coercion not consent and in my e...

Re: When did you have your first crush?

Hey ameliap I have been there!

Re: Masturbation Myths

One of the widely accepted scripts about masturbation still seems to be that it is something only people with penises do and that it is something to be ashamed of...false on both counts!

Re: Period every 2 weeks

Since you mentioned your periods were really irregular, was it due to birth control or other factors, and how long did that last? For me it wasn't birth control, my body is just like that, or was for the 4 years I had periods before birth control. Unfortunately we are all so different that using on...

Hey lingerings :) Many people use one form of birth control, and used correctly the condoms and the pill each have over 98% effectiveness. What's more relevant though is how good they are with 'typical use' (because no matter how careful we are, we arent perfect!) which for the combined pill is 91% ...

Hey curly, I remember feeling the way you describe not so long ago.

Unfortunately we can't magically decide to stop feeling something, but we...

Yeah, when you're not in school suddenly you aren't mixed in with a huge bunch of potential peers and it feels like meeting new people somehow stops.

Totally agree with smallgirl here. I'm pretty down with my breasts at the minute, I've just moved to a hotter climate and love that they don't ask me to wear a bra all the time. I'm enjoying having my back out more, it makes me feel strong.
