We think there is a serious lack of relevant and useful information about the sexuality of African women. This blog is a space for African women to share tips, experiences and more...

Guest Post from Eleanor T.K. – What if Mama had talked about Sex?

Last week was Mother’s Day and this year marks the closest mama and I have ever been. Whatsapp has definitely contributed to building communication between us. Yet while we talk more, we still don’t talk about it (sex) all. We have never gotten around to talking about my experiences with the drunk uncle who tried […]

Ananse, Anansewa.

I found this thing I wrote to Nana last year and did not put up, can’t remember why. Figured, now was as good a time as any! For those who don’t know, I keep teasing Nana with these little meetings where I hold my breath and try to see if she recognises me. She still […]

‘Why body count?’ by Guest Contributor Efua

I woke up one day and men and women had begun asking questions that had the underlying expression ‘body count’. Apparently, the virgin question didn’t matter anymore. What mattered recently was how many bodies you had encountered sexually. I know lol, the sound of ‘bodies’ sound super morbid but interestingly enough, I lack a better […]

International Masturbation Day: Yippee I touched myself today

I just realised that it’s #InternationalMasturbationDay and for a moment I was like, “Whoa! Is that how come I felt like touching myself this morning for the first time in months?” I woke up just before 5am because I needed to pee, and when I came back to bed I made the mistake of checking […]

My contraceptive story

“I don’t need the pill. I only had sex once”   “What do you mean you don’t need the pill? You only need to have sex once to fall pregnant”.   And that is how I started on the combined pill 2 months short of my 23rd birthday after going to see the General Practioner […]

‘Monologue sur le Matriarcat/Monologue on Matriarcat’ by Guest Contributor Fatime Faye

Je dédis ce monologue à ma sœur Tokossel qui est atrocement mutilée et à ma sœur Seynabou qui est morte l’année dernière, à 40 ans, laissant ses jumeaux et 6 autres enfants. I recant this monologue to my sister Tokossel who is horribly mutilated and to my sister Seynabou who died last year, just after […]

‘Living with Fibroids’ by Guest Contributor Dede

Since being diagnosed with fibroids 5 years ago, I have seen a total of 16 doctors. 16 being the number of every individual medical practitioner to have examined me whether for follow-up visits or surgery or ultrasounds. 16 doctors with probably half of them having touched my vagina at some point. I joke that my […]

Much ado about nipples

My #Afrifem sister @Zawadi Nyongo wrote ‘Is it time for a nipple revolution‘ and that’s set me thinking about my own nipples and the breasts they are attached to. My nipples rarely give me sexual pleasure, they feel too sensitive. Sometimes its bearable to have them suckled. Sometimes that feels pleasurable. More often than not […]

“God Created Sex” by guest contributor, Rumbi

Sexuality is an odd thing. A group of us could be sitting around a table talking about orgasms; each of us using the exact same vocabulary but our experiences will most likely be vastly different. Since there is no real test of objectivity to gauge that we are talking about the same experience, we can […]
