Another month, another summary of the sex and relationships articles I’ve written for BitchBuzz. I’ve reviewed a book of sex tips and a writers’ conference, discussed the temptation we all get to overshare when we’re buzzing from a new relationship, and have pondered whether absence does actually make the heart grow fonder.
BitchBuzz Sex: Dr Sadie Allison’s Tickle My Tush
“You can tell straight away that Dr Sadie’s books are aimed at the sort of people who are rather embarrassed when talking about sex. She called her guide to penis pleasing Tickle His Pickle, her masturbation for women book is entitled Tickle Your Fancy, and her book on sex toys is TOYGASMS! Now, I like a good euphemism as much as anyone, but these titles do strike me as a little bit coy for sex books. Still, when I was asked to review her latest title, I was rather intrigued.”
BitchBuzz Sex: Eroticon 2012, Writing Sex Right
“Eroticon 2012, the first UK conference for sex bloggers and erotica writers, took place in Bristol last weekend and, perhaps unsurprisingly, there were a lot of women there. I had been invited by the organiser, erotica writer Ruby Kiddell, to sit on a couple of panels and was very excited at the prospect of mingling with other people who write about a topic that is still considered to be rather taboo.”
BitchBuzz Life: How to Keep Your Head When Falling in Love
“You meet someone amazing, you go on a few dates, you fall head over heels in love. You’re so happy that you just can’t stop talking about it. It’s a story that I’m sure many of you will recognise, but how do we stop it before we get too bad?”
BitchBuzz Life: Does Absence Make The Heart Grow Fonder?
“Some people say that absence makes the heart grow fonder. Others say “out of sight, out of mind.” It’s always possible to find an idiom to suit your needs, so many are rather contradictory. This is largely irrelevant though because all of them can be true at some point, depending on the circumstances. It depends on the type of relationship you have as to which saying will be true in this case. Everyone of us is different, and so every possible combination of people will also be different.”
