SlutTalk: Sexpectations vs reality (and my opinion on porn)

I’ve wanted to start a blog series for a while now and well, I’m sat here bleeding to death and don’t plan on moving for a few days so the time is now. When I was a kid/pre teen magazines like “Girl talk” and “mizz” where my life guide, articles like ‘how to snog your boyfriend’ and ‘which lipgloss is best for you’ were what I lived for in the days of my innocence, now as a 19 year old woman, I feel like there isn’t anything to help me, cosmo feels too old, buzzfeed too jokey (but usually 10/10) and I strongly believe in being the change you wish to see in the world, so away I go, here is my ‘girl’ guide (suitable for all genders) to being a young adult.

“Dont knock masturabtion… It’s sex with someone I love”

No sadly that isn’t my own quote, it was said by Woody Allen, however it is hilariously true. Female masturbation is a no go zone for most girls, we are raised so sexually shamed that once we do discover our own bodies we don’t talk about it because its “gross” well I want to change that. I was contacted by Smile Makers to create a post about female masturbation and well being and of course I jumped at the opportunity  because I love the company and their philosophy…
