When I was 27, a guy I'd been seeing told me he'd noticed a lump inside me. The word lump has an instant and visceral connection -- you might as well just say "cancer." I figured he had far more knowledge of vaginas than I did. Terrified, I went to the doctor. It turned out to be my cervix.

I suggest all women -- especially moms -- reclaim our bedrooms as preferential spaces in our homes beyond just storing clothes, applying makeup, and sleeping. While doing this, I also recommend we commit to reprioritizing our personal sexual satisfaction to a heightened position.

Anyone Scoffing at 'Active Consent' Is Missing the Point

Shannon Deep | Posted 10.07.2014 | Women
Shannon Deep

Active consent policies exist to change hearts and minds about how we think about sexual boundaries. They are not meant to entrap drunk college students with unfounded rape accusations, which under active consent are no easier to "prove" than before.

But as you get older you discover that if you learn relax, with food and sex, the pleasure can be indescribable.

There was a time when it was considered inappropriate to discuss sex and sexual anxieties. Certainly, what you got up to in the bedroom was nobody's business but your own.
