I grew up in a very traditional African Christian background where discussing sex had so much shame and stigma. I lost my virginity at a pretty young age but I had no idea about sex. My first job was in a popular sex shop and my eyes were opened: I met women who embraced their sexuality, women who were curious, women who were ashamed to be there, basically all walks of life. In that job, I learned that sex and sexuality is a part of of us: we all pretty much have a sex life, regardless of how little or much you we getting it. And I learned that understanding and accepting who we are, sexually, is a really important part of learning to be ourselves and living lives that fulfil and satisfy us. Read my full bio [here]
