Re: Good Books for Self-Care

Hey great topic! I started writing this thinking you meant books that informed self-care instead of what you really meant, i.e. books read for the purpose of self care. Anyhow this is what I started saying: This is an odd suggestion from me, because frankly I completely disagreed with the politics o...

Re: Am I asexual

Hi Innocent welcome to scarleteen! I'm sorry to hear you're having such a tough time of this, you're not alone... after all, issues like this are why we exist here. It sounds like you're feeling a lot of pressure to do sexual/romantic acts and to enjoy them. As a minimum this alone is going to get i...

Re: Sexting

I am actually a relatively big fan of sexting for myself, and as a teen did a lot of cybersex which was great (and some fine creative writing practise!) But now I have really felt like I've had to curb that part of my sexuality... because as far as I can see, most employers and/or the general public...

Re: Who are you comfortable talking about sex with?

Yeah I think for me it's also non-parents.

I'm comfortable with partners and close friends. I do find that acquaintances outside of that can be more judgemental (or I might fear that they are before finding out otherwise) which does feel less comfortable.

Re: Panicked about my mistakes

Hi Fiercegiraffe, Actually I don't think there is anything in your behaviour here to be embarassed about or sorry for. It sounds like you have had a really tough time, especially relocating away from friends. Often friends are our support network and it sounds like you had some good ones. Rather tha...

Re: Birth control + male condoms effectiveness question

Hi cupcakegirl94, Firstly welcome to scarleteen. With effectiveness, that hour or so variation shouldn't really make a difference. It is best for routine and certainty to keep to the same time. But they should be effective when taken every day during the same few hours. Secondly, numbers are imperfe...

Re: What is love?

Oh stephanie you got there before me! 'Don't hurt me, don't hurt me... no more. ' I actually quit using love to describe romantic relationship things a few years go, just to make things easier for myself. Now I might talk about wants, and how someone makes me feel and so on, much more. I think actua...

Re: Friend-Dates!

I feel like I really need 1 on 1 time with close friends... group friendships are fun but I feel the absolute best when we go for dinner or watch movies together. This is a great thread! I think going for a walk or a cycle is always my favourite. I went to my friend's home town last month and we spe...

Do you feel you can change things?

Hey folks! So, if you guys realise that you are unhappy with a certain political (or organisational: like your school or workplace) issue, how much power do you feel like you have to change things? Because it is one thing to notice injustice, but it's another thing to feel motivated to make a change...
