Wowsers, I have been having LOTS of sex.

I will use this as a convenient excuse for not writing anything here in an age. Although seriously, so sorry for being such an uber slacker.

Anywho, this whole boxes-of-10 condoms thing (non-latex ones come in boxes of 10) means I can actually very easily tally my sex-usage on a monthly basis. I’m finding it very cool to be able to ‘run stats’ on this sort of this for, quite possibly, the first time in my life. Having been on an oral contraceptive since I first started menstruating (at like barely 12 years old) I guess I’ve almost felt disengaged or distanced from my cycle and the way my body works.

I have now been off the contraceptive pill since the week before Christmas and I feel great. My constant battle with fatigue has eased, my libido has increased back to what it used to be and doesn’t suddenly plummit into nothingness anymore either. I haven’t lost any weight, but hey, I haven’t been trying so that’s next on the list to address and see if any changes have occured. My body feels as though it is working much better although the journey to my first period was perilous, PMTing like a mofo for 3 weeks solid, I think it is going to take a while to right itself… I’ve been on this medicine the last 13 years with only one 3 month break about 3 years ago.

There’s also this feeling of no longer being foggy. It’s difficult to describe or articulate fully, but basically I feel as though a bit of a mental veil has lifted. I’m feeling sharp and it’s great.

As each of my cycles progress I am going to see how I go. In having never been off a hormone longer than 3 months in my entire menstrual history I just have to play this entire process by ear. If my endometriosis symptoms return I will have to start up on a hormone again straight away, although over the past year all the nastiness seems to have eased quite a bit or is at least managable. (have I written about orgasm-therapy yet..? That’s a topic for another post methinks) The shitty endo symptoms are yet another reason to try to lose some weight also.

My aim right now is to try to get through to late 2011, hopefully the whole year, without taking any hormones or medically altering my cycle, if you will. Although failing that I’m giving myself a minimum 3 full cycle break (so 4 actual periods). I’m still researching the nuva-ring, but upon returning to hormonal contraception I’m pretty sure this is what I will be going with. If you have had any experience with this please comment and tell me about it 🙂

(Implanonon or the 3 month injections scare the shit out of me, too much anecdotal evidence this stuff either agrees with you or REALLY doesn’t)

So, yeah, receiving the news a combination of the oral pill and migraines puts you at risk of a stroke or DVT really was a major shock to the system, I didn’t know how I would go being off the pill and I also liked the convenience of being able to plot the where/when of menstruating. I have to say at the moment I’m not in love with condoms, but neither of us is ready to make a little person (or willing to risk it) and insofar we have been very responsible with contraception. It’s actually very nearly become part of our sexiness.

So yeah, I guess when I think about it, condoms are pretty sexy because they herald the onset on guilt and worry free sex. Feeling good about the sexy you’re having without worry means you will relax and enjoy yourself more.

NTS – tell this^ to my kid when they grow up!

The increase in my libido has meant I feel like sex a whole lot more, I’m also wanking a shiteload more too. It’s awesome to feel like a relatively balanced sexual being once more.

3 cheers for sexy-sex!

The way we all freak out so fucking hard about the most normal, banal and goddamn necessary bodily functions.

It’s absolutely ridiculous.

Everyone sits on the toilet to pee and poo.  Like everyone, even the queen has to sit on the throne and crap you know!  Every woman has a menstrual cycle and bleeds (shock horror!).  If you’re not a woman personally, then your mum, sister, girlfriend and female friends bleed monthly.  Yes!  It’s true!

Why are we all so frightened and disgusted by the machinations of our earthly vehicles?  Especially with period stuff!?!

Seriously, that icky, inconvenient and ‘gross’ thing happens every month is the reason you’re physically here to even feel repulsed in the first place.  We’re so busy cramming poisoneous wads of cotton up our snatches to make our uterous shedding it’s lining as inconspicuous as possible that we don’t even stop to think what that blood means anymore.

This is going to make me sound like an epic crystal licking hippy, but that blood is life.

Life, in a literal menstrual stemcells will help scientists grow your legs back kind of way AND also, you know, engender you growing another human being inside you if that’s what you choose.

Or the fact that women contain the means to continue the growth of the human race and some may say menstrual blood is symbolic of life itself.

I guess why I get so jacked off though, is because of my own personal experiences.

I have no issues continuing my conversation with you from the toilet, pissing with the door open so we can still chat.  Or talking on the phone, you may hear the loo flush partway through…  I am hornier than thou when I’m just about to and whilst menstruating, I’m not shy to say so and persue gratification.  I’m also really interested in menstrual art, ritual and more recently becoming aware of the outrage so many direct towards period porn.

The reactions that I have garnered from many in regards to holding such views and practises have ranged from shock to down and out utter revulsion.

I think that’s really fucked up.  It also really makes my blood boil that so many feel absolutely justified to tell me precisely how ashamed I should be of my body and the wonderful things it does and in turn clearly illustrate this attitude is the societal norm.

Balls to that.  I do my best to feel nothing but love for all the sticky, squishy, fragrant, miraculous and bloody incredible things my body does.

You should give it a shot too.


This video^ is a great hands-on instructional guide on how to use your mooncup.

I have been using my mooncup for so long, I forgot what traditional sanitary items were like. I had viral gastro not very long ago and after the 3rd day I started to bleed as my pill wasn’t absorbing (consistant vomiting and diarrhea will do that to you). I was at my partners house and very ill, so he went to the supermarket and bought me some winged pads – this is what I used to use at nighttimes before I had a mooncup.

Within 2 days of using these items, I had a couple of small and painful pimple type things where my inner thighs met my pubic area and my poor outer labia were raw, tender and slightly rashed. I felt like I’d had gravel in my knickers for a couple of days. It was awful.

I also felt like I was wearing a nappy. My period felt gross and inconvenient. I felt concerned about leaking onto the bed and sheets. I was annoyed my body was putting me in a yucky and stressful position. Then I realised that I usually didn’t feel like that towards menstruating.

It was the manner in which I collecting or absorbing my flow that was really really bothering me.

I felt uncomfortable physically and mentally with the entire situation. So I went home, had a shower and inserted my mooncup. The rest of the week went by without further negative feelings or physical discomfort. I realised just how much my attitude towards my period, my body and the way I conduct myself when bleeding and how I feel about that, has shifted significantly since I started using the mooncup.

It is really nice to notice a real positive shift in how I perceive myself in the process of something that is inherantly female: menstruating.

If you’re interested in purchasing one of these amazing items, this NZ company does them at an excellent price and they are fantastic to deal with: GreenBeans

Well… I did it again.  Love that song though 😛

(Sorry for the little May-hiatus here.  So much has been on I’ve barely had time to scratch myself… or something.  I hosted a rather large house-warming party which took a lot of planning, running around and set up.  Immediately after it I became really sick.  Like the sickest I’ve been in years, it was certainly the first time I’d been prescribed anti biotics in the last year at least.  in amongst all of that work, as usual keeps me quite occupied as well.)

So I have managed to squirt again.  Nothing anywhere near as intense as the first time, but, dun dun duuuuuuuun…  I did it myself!  Hooray!  3 cheers for me!

With the help of my doc johnson g-spot vibe, an egg vibe and 1 fluffy towel I came twice with accompanying gushes.

Unfortunately since this particular achievement I haven’t really had the time or energy to invest in attempting either a solo session or one with my partner.  I think I’m going to hold out until we have enough planned time together to attempt to recreate what occured the first time I squirted.  (see my post from April 27th)

I’m currently menstruating and experiencing bizarre surges in my libido.  Since I’ve been sick I haven’t really felt like sex or masturbating much.  I’m just not getting particularly aroused on my own, but I’m not too stressed about it as I was really really unwell.  I’m only on day 2 of actually bleeding, but finished my pill 4 days ago and since Sunday I’ve noticed I’m either spectacularly horny, or really not.  Usually my period is a time of fairly intense sexual drive, but I’m thinking maybe getting sick has thrown me out of whack a little.

Hopefully my body is righted by the time my period finishes and I get into my next cycle…
