I picked up this book, Secrets of Tantric Sex by Claudia Blake, from my local Waterstones just before I got pregnant. I only managed to read a few pages before I had to swap tantra for baby books and now I’m keen to start dipping back into it.
Tantra isn’t something I know a great deal about so I’m fascinated to learn what’s involved. This book seemed like a great place to start.
What books would you recommend for someone wanting to know more about?
It’s been over a year since I last posted on here and a lot has happened in that time. For one thing, I went and got myself pregnant and had a baby, not to mention the small matter of there being a global pandemic.
I’d all but given up on ever returning to writing this blog. I regularly asked myself if anyone even reads blogs anymore? That was before I even got into the matter of whether I had anything worth saying.
All my energy was spent getting safely through my pregnancy and having a healthy baby. Anything remotely sex related went out the window.
I’m now 4 months post partum and taking care of a newborn baby has occupied every waking moment of my day. But as the months wore on I started to realise how much I missed writing.
When I began to suffer with post natal depression, I saw how little time I spent on myself and taking care of my own needs and so I decided to return to this blogging lark.
However, this won’t be the same blog is was before. I’ve decided to shift focus and step away from discussing my personal sex life as I did before and focus instead on book reviews of erotic literature, non-fiction works with a sex and relationship focus and more broadly sex education. I’ll continue to do the odd sex toy review, as well as lingerie reviews but I won’t be modelling any of them I’m afraid.
I want this to be a welcoming space for all; a place where we can discuss sex, relationships and intimacy openly and without judgement. But I also want it to be a non-stuffy environment that is accessible and fun.
