Making consent sexy

One time I was hanging out with a bunch of new friends. We were in a friend’s newly rented apartment. There were about six of us, and so we were all camping out on the floor on airbeds. We had spent the night talking about sex, and I for one was feeling more than a little […]

But this period also came with some very awkward, uncomfortable and downright displeasurable sexual encounters.
