Share Our Shit Saturday 24th Feb 2018 #SOSS: The Mental Health Addition

It’s Saturday again and time for me to share some fantastic sex positive content from the sex blogging community. I’ve been struggling with my mental health for a while now, and as we’re nearing the end of winter I know so many of you are struggling too. I want to show you that you are not alone, and offer some solace and support. So this week’s #SOSS will be a little different. Each post offers a personal and unique insight into what it’s like to struggle with mental health, sometimes in relation to sex, but not always. These are tough things to write about and I have the utmost respect for the bloggers who are able to. Rather than summarise what are obviously very personal pieces, I will just leave you with each title and author. I feel more comfortable this way, as I would hate to misinterpret something so important.

So here we go. Click each title to reach the original post(s).

  1. Thank you Jezebella! Going to book-mark this and visit the various posts as and when.
    Gosh haven’t a lot of my favourite ‘sex bloggers’ been able to offer advice about diverse aspects of mental health? Great work to collate it all together. xx

  2. This is a great idea. I’ve been trying to come up with an idea to connect all the sex bloggers that write about mental health. Perhaps a hashtag such as #sb4mh (sex bloggers 4 mental health) in addition to your #notalone and my #bfmh (blog for mental health)
    I was thinking maybe using the hashtag weekly similar to #SOSS on Saturdays. I feel that there should be some form of unity among sex bloggers who write about their mental illness effecting their sex life in addition to everyday activities. I wanted to write for a mental health website but because my blog was contained adult material I couldn’t. I felt embarrassed and dirty and then I got pissed off. Maybe just having that as an umbrella (sb4mh) could be able to included everyone to writes about sex & mental health.
    I even came up with a pledge for it….what do you think? I could start with your list and hopefully it can grow from there.
