360.Wishes for better sex ed

watercolour doodle that I painted recently
I fucking love sex. Not that I have much experience, in a realm as large as the universe I’ve only explored our solar system, with much left to discover beyond even the discoveries mapped out by scientists. Though an intrepid explorer you could say my read knowledge outweighs my practical experience, yet I’ve got a libido for both.

This drive may have been influenced by my sexually enthusiastic friend or my unenthused school sex education. If sexuality in all its forms is so key to humanity, health and happiness I do wonder why in the UK at least it is not freely discussed in schools alongside our compulsory doses of Math, Science and English? Where was porn, masturbation, erotica, body positivity, communication tatics, BDSM, real anatomical explanations, sexuality, gender, intersexuality amongst a multitude of other topics on the curriculum? Luckily for me the internet filled, and continues to fill those gaps, yet what of those who do not have internet access or find information too late or just may not have the initial curiosity? For their sake I do hope all those screaming about the insidious effect of sex heavy media on our teens will turn their fervourent  voices to the advocacy of clear, inclusive and critical sex education.
In my own journey I hope to find a place were my fervoured support will soon be of use. In the meantime I’d love to point you in the direction of some of the sexy things I’ve been watching and reading:-

  • Laci Green's Sex+ is a one stop video shop for informative friendly sex ed, and you can also find her at her other channel A Naked Notion.
  • Scarleteen  is similiar to Sex+ but in the written format, giving the chance for more in depth discussion.
  • Sexplanations is a new channel run by the very cute, but also really informative sextologist (cool job title!) Dr Doe. She talks "basics" but also things you may not know about (or atleast I didn't!)
  • The Untitled Mag isn't devoted to sex, but definitley deals with it. Sadly they haven't posted in a while.
  • This performance by Hari Nef hopefully will make you think.
(ps let me know of anything sexy I should also be consuming below)

359.Wishes to stop cleaning

I suppose this post is only further evidence of the importance of details. The second image illustrates the simplicity of this outfit (something I've been wearing for the household chores that have been a big part of my summer) without the addition of a cute ribbon and socks needed to make me feel sassy and freeeeee. Hope your all well!

358.Wishes to capture the details

A lot of what I wear is in the detail, detail which I sadly am never great at capturing in the photographic form. The gold and olive green glitter shimmering my eyelids, the rosy pink lipgloss, the pleat in my trousers, the flower clasp in my hair, and the deep burgundy shade of my shoes. Each element brings the outfit together, and puts the part of my mind that needs to curate a specific character to rest. I am more than my outfit, but when I'll be judged on that outfit it must tell the world exactly the me I want to be that day, the me that includes all those meticulous details.
