Home About


Adventures from the Bedrooms of African Women was started in January 2009 by Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah and Malaka Grant as a space for African Women to share experiences of Sex and our diverse Sexualities.

The blog is managed by Fatima Derby who also writes for the blog alongside  Guest Contributors. Posts on the blog are generally based on the personal experiences of contributors, as well as random sources of inspiration including interesting articles, conversations with friends, books we have read, good sex, bad sex, bad kissers… It is our hope that the blog provides a safe space where African women can openly discuss a variety of sex and sexuality issues with the intention of learning from each other, having pleasurable and safer sex and encouraging continuous sex education for adults.

The administrators of “Adventures” welcome contributions from African women. Contributions can be focused on any sex or sexuality related issue. Guest contributors may blog anonymously or under their own names. To contribute please email your contribution to adventuresfrom [at] gmail dot com. Please let us know if you wish to use a pseudonym/contribute anonymously. Do also let us know if possible what pseudonym you would like to use (we would really like to showcase the diversity of African women contributing on the site so it would be really nice if your pseudonym could reflect your country of origin for e.g. as long as that doesn’t compromise your anonymity.) The administrators reserve the right to edit posts (mainly for typos and grammar) and reserve the rights to rejects posts that are misogynistic, sexist or discriminatory towards women/marginalised groups of women. However we may occasionally publish a “non-politically correct” post to stimulate debate on an issue.

Although “Adventures” is primarily a blog for African women we recognise that there are progressive men who may wish to contribute to this forum. These contributions are welcome; however priority will be given to highlighting women’s experiences of sex and sexuality.

The Administrators of Adventures are committed to keeping the information you share with us safe and secure. We will not sell or share your information with third parties.
