Letter to the child I am not planning to conceive

I am really pleased to have my latest poem published by Mxogyny.  A fantastic online magazine dedicated to writing related to women’s issues, gender and gender identity.

In this poem, I raise my personal feelings on whether to choose motherhood and try to discuss the concerns that all women face before deciding to have children

Sex Pest

I have a new video for my track Sex Pest
I wanted to have a go at animation.  I wasn’t expecting it to be easy, but I am not in a hurry to do it again.
I wrote this poem after a night of chats with a friend sharing our experiences. Which led to a discussion about how when we were younger sexual pressure and objectification was often dismissed as simply immature behaviour, that what we thought were blurry lines between assault and bad behaviour are actually quite clear, and how even though almost every women we knew had been assaulted, we didn’t know of anyone who had reported an assault. But it’s not all serious because when right, sex is fun and sometimes even funny.
