Are You A Rosebud Or A Rose-In-Bloom? asks Guest Contributor Kalya

I like flowers. They invoke feelings and thoughts of beauty and life; two aspects that wax and wane, not unlike the moon. I find floral prints quite charming but I’m pragmatic enough to acknowledge that too much may be overkill and just plain tacky. Anyway, don’t you find it amazing whenever flora resembles parts of […]

“I’d rather have no head than have a bad one.” I couldn’t believe my ears. Who was this man? In all my men dating history no man had ever uttered these words to me. “I love head. Don’t get me wrong. But because I do, I know what a good one feels like and I’d […]

Yaw rushed to call the traditional birth attendants who quickly moved me into our bedroom and laid me on a mat with a big basin of water and cloth beside me. They put the towel on my forehead to cool me down as I was sweating bucket loads of perspiration. In Fante traditional custom, a […]

An Adventures Google Hangout with Sankofa Yale Undergraduate Association for African Peace and Development (YAAPD)

On Monday evening, Malaka and I participated in a Google Hangout with members of the Sankofa Yale Undergraduate Association for African Peace and Development (YAAPD). In spite of the technical difficulties ( a really annoying echo on the line, and a not so great connection) we had fun interacting with the young women who participated. […]

Almost Dead

I tried to commit suicide this year. I intentionally overdosed on pain medication and the last thing I remember before I passed out was the jarring pain in my stomach, the bitter taste in my mouth and the sensation of floating out of my body. As I stared down at my round body wearing an […]

‘Dispatch from Rombesia’ by Guest Contributor Lace and Saffron

Eyes closed, swift shallow breaths, racing pulse. My body shuddered and I refused to move, allowing the pleasurable sensations to reverberate throughout my body – it felt good. He moved to withdraw from me then had a wicked change of heart and bumped his shaft against my still sensitive clitoris. I gasped and drew in […]

‘Bisexual or Confused?’ by Guest Contributor Rakgadi

I am what a lot of people call bisexual, or am I?. I am eldest of three sisters and I have a big brother who is 6yrs older than me. Grew up such a loner, thought nobody understood me. I was always stuck in a corner somewhere with a book. By the time I was […]

Before the Sunset

*Thanks to everyone for your thoughts, prayers, healing vibes &  well-wishes. My grandmother has finally been  released from the hospital & her condition has been stabilized. I called her & she wept on the phone which was really hard for me because I have never seen my gran cry. She said, ‘I was so scared […]

‘To Brazilian or not to Brazilian?’ asks Adwoa

This post was conceived during an unexpected and novel situation I found myself in yesterday. There I was, lying on my back in a public place with other people within earshot with my legs akimbo whilst an attractive female I had never met got to work servicing my vagina. No, this wasn’t my first foray […]

‘Good loving over the lights of Lagos’ by Guest Contributor Vortex

You are lying over me, we are connected as you are deeply inside and you are looking not just at me but into me. The mental connection is not all together unexpected but still takes me a little by surprise, how is it I feel so comfortable with you? As we lean towards each other […]
