Well maybe not actually turning 40. I’m sure as I headed through my late 30’s it got better. And if you’re not there yet and you’re filled with fear at the thought of aging, I’m here to tell you, you have nothing to worry about. Last night my husband and I had sex. Act...

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...

I remember my husband saying to me, a few heady weeks into our relationship, that he couldn’t imagine getting into bed with me and not touching me, or sitting next to me and not resting a hand on me. We were connected by touch the whole time we were together, either ho...

So we're still recovering from the fabulousness that was our first 'A NIGHT WITH HOTBED' live podcast event which took place at Old Street Records this week. This was really the first time that we'd stood up on stage in front of an audience and told everyone what we we...

Ladies, come and join Cherry, Anniki and Lisa for the recording of their first live podcast.

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.
