I wasn’t a particularly early starter, but I always looked older than my age so found that men were hassling me for sex from about thirteen. It didn’t help that I went out to clubs in Soho, and lied about my age, and wore platform shoes and had enormous hair (though I...

Of course, we shouldn’t argue with kids around.  We should be grateful to have them, and walk around in a fuzzy warm haze, congratulating ourselves on our good fortune, ensuring we wear matching Boden, and post #blessed images on Instagram.  The problem is, nobody has...

About us

We are Anniki and Lisa, and we want to talk about sex. Sex after a 14-hour day of work and parenting. Sex rather than watching five hours of Breaking Bad. Sex after ten years of being in the same bed as each other. Sex when you're single but none of your friends are. We want to talk about sex without even mentioning penis straws. Like actual grown-up sex. Thank you. Please join in. It's not always easy to talk about it but it's much easier to talk about it together. #backinthesack.
