In a few minutes it will be a year since Adventures from the Bedrooms of African Women launched in cyber space and what a year it has been. I had no particular expectations when I suggested to my friend that we start this blog, infact what I originally wanted was for Abena and I to write a book together about the realities of sex and the African woman but I feared that it would go the way of our other project and die even before it birthed. Hence the idea for a blog came about. With blogs you have to update regularly, you have readers you owe a responsibility to…
The other reasons I was motivated to start the blog included having gone on a fantastic girls trip to a beach resort and having the most frank and open conversations on sex with my girlfriends and being at a stage in my life where I felt sexually confident and willing to share my experiences with others.
Feedback on this blog has been simply amazing. I had a fear when I started writing that I was going to get severely criticised and accused of immorality but the reaction has been the opposite. People have welcomed this space and been generous with their contributions, comments and feedback. I am grateful to all those who in diverse ways have contributed to making this space the dynamic, exciting and sexy space it is.
