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

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.

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 […]

‘How shall I break up with my buddy’ asks Guest Contributor ThatGirlQ

He was supposed to be a palette cleanser after a short relationship that went horribly wrong. I’d never been in a FwB situation in my 35 years and this fellow had been pursuing me for just that for a number of years and my response had always been “No!” The man is rather good looking, […]

Do you wanna lick me? Part 2: Eba and jollof

[I liked Nnenna’s story ‘Do you wanna lick me‘ and when I asked her for a part 2 she asked me to write, and so I did.]   We were like eba and jollof, Olive and I. I remember when I first saw her in church. She sat next to a woman who could only […]

Miss Independent wants money from her man

                So over the weekend, my girlfriends and I had a girl talk. We talked about fashion, food, careers, and the opposite sex, dating and money. I noticed that my friends and I have a thing in common, we can’t ask the men we date for financial support […]
