@TheConversation relaxation – although only in short bursts between running and fetching after my kids!

“@TheConversation: For you, are weekends about relaxation, work, or taking care of your home life?” All of them! Which doesn’t work well 😉

@TheConversation hopefully a little of each.

Many of you have experienced inequality and you’re not afraid to talk about it!

“I had a boss at a Hair Salon who had a gorgeous wife but tried to sleep with every girl or woman that worked for him. He hit on me once as I was bending over, putting towels into a dryer. I stood up and flatly told him that I was going to steal his wife if he continued this behavior. Knowing I’m not Gay, he backed up, left the room and was pleasant but guarded with me afterwards.” Lois M. M., Facebook.
You’re not shy to open up about sexuality.
“I’m open about it with anyone who want to talk. It’s a great topic.” – Yvonne B., Facebook. “I talk openly about sex with everyone who asks! I probably should keep it to friends, but I like that to share my experiences, bad or good, so I can maybe help another person out.” – Cindy K. B., Facebook. “I think we should have a more open platform for young adults and kids to learn about the “in’s and out’s” of sex (no pun intended!) but there should be a deeper level conversation about relationships, strong partnerships, love etc. that comes with the act so it isn’t about something dirty… However when I’m at my mate and her husbands house having a BBQ with her in laws and the kids, I really don’t want to be picturing some “experimental lovemaking” they did last week! I’m afraid there are some things I would prefer not to know and my mates in-depth sex life is one if them! (Great British reserve and all that!).” – Victoria O., Facebook.
@TheConversation Not taboo; but you have to know the company you’re in for appropriateness.
