Having sex with yourself as a trans+ person can be pretty overwhelming. Finding sex advice tailored to trans bodies is hard to come by if you don’t know the right blogs or zines to search. Plus, a lot of sex advice is often written with trans+ people as an afterthought. Some sex advice is so heavily focused on euphoria, where the sheer grandiosity of it all makes it sound like the heavens will part and the angels will sing every time you touch yourself, and if it doesn’t, you’ve done something wrong.

Date night is wonderful idea.  Date night communicates love for each partner from each partner.  When we make space for a date night, we make space for our partner; for our relationship.  It is a demonstrable way to show our commitment; our love; our want to be with our partner or partners. Date nights are one of the strategies people try when it comes to rekindling a relationship.  I often find myself sitting with relationships in therapy listening to partners talk about how they go on date night and it does not go to plan – they struggle with conversation; they fight – th ..read more
