Broken vagina club Anonymous 6474[Reply]

Anyone else have trouble with having sex? No matter how much foreplay, I feel like everything is super desensitized down there. Its impossible for me to become aroused. PIV literally feels like nothing, albeit uncomfortable from a penis entering my unaroused vagina. Oral and fingering feels like nothing.

I kinda just have sex since my bf has a high drive. I would literally prefer to do anything else, since it is a little painful but i love him so w.e. Anyone else deal w this shit? I got of an antidepressant of 1 yr, 2 months ago and just stopped my birth control last week because im sick of it and trying new shit.

Basically, send help. Would doctors even take me seriously

The fuck are you talking about? Why are you bringing up kids?

Anonymous 6590

Most girls on birth control do it because they want to have sex without getting pregnant(duh), and what I was saying is that if you're gonna have sex for the sake of it it's not worth it. If you're still not in the stage(or with the person)in which you wouldn't mind getting pregnant, work on that first before wasting your time with hookups. And dating someone you don't plan on being with on the long run is pretty much just an extended hookup. Stop wasting time with such things, look for someone you actually want to be with.
And taking birth control, antidepressants and other pills will make it harder for you to judge your situation properly since they mess with your hormones. One thing leads to another, it's pretty transparent.

Im with my first boyfriend at 21. Its been 3 months. I see a future with him but im not having a child obviously.

Don't you go putting words in my mouth.

Anonymous 6593

Of course I understand that, but I still think you shouldn't take birth control. Not only is it bad for your overall health, going as far as being able to render you infertile, but it promotes hedonism. See, if the boy you're with is really worth it in the long term, your relationship must be based upon much more than simply sex, which is to say that you needn't be having sex all the time during this "evaluation phase". After all, a possible long term relationship starts with a relationship that transcends sex, a real companionship(I don't want to use the term friendship because I don't think it's the same thing as we have with close friends). Any relationship built on physical stimulation as its prime directive is very fragile, and it's no wonder long term relationships have become so rare in our highly oversexualized culture.
>but what if he complains?
If he's not willing to build an actual relationship and only wants to bed you chances are he's not worth it.

Almost like it's a crude drawing trying to convey placement and not artistic accuracy.

Anonymous 4946

I think something like a sleeve or big piece can look nice, but when they're small and scattered they end up looking cheap.

Anonymous 4974

I love the artistry of tattoos. I follow a lot of tattooists on ig. But when I see a person with tattoos, I almost always think they would look better without them. Especially in artistic photos and such. It takes away from their natural beauty. I've thought about getting a tattoo since high school, but this is one of the main reasons I have never gotten one.

Anonymous 6588

I got a stick n poke recently and love it and it makes me want more, more legit, tattoos. I have ideas of what I want next I'm just not 100% ready to commit. I like smaller thinner tattoos too

Anonymous 6589

>Do you like tattoos? Do you have any?
No and never really had any desire to have one.
>Do you think tattoos make people look "cheap" or impulsive, especially if the person has too many?
Yes, but only if that person be it male or female isn't fit. If you just get a tatoo and look like a slob/unhealthy skinny then it looks very trashy to me.
If a person is fit and has good looking body i look at tatoos like minor enhancements to overall image, even if a person has plenty of meme tribal tatoos but still has good looking fit body

Which one are you?
Do you wish you could change your height?
Does it even matter that much when it comes to dating?
And for guys, do you have a preference?

Share, I'm curious.

I'm 155cm tall btw. And yes I do genuinely wish I was taller.

Same height and I too wish I was taller. Like 6'2" or something though (although I could settle for 5'9").
I just avoid voluntarily interacting with (much) taller men because they make me want to die. I feel threatened by anyone bigger than me regardless of gender tbh, and the thought of them being attracted to me like:
>throw around the bedroom
makes me want to vomit.
Men under 5'3" are amazing gifts.

Anonymous 6544

Where do you live that 5'6 is an average height for women?

Anonymous 6561

I'm 5'8, kind of in that weird in-between realm where kids point and say "wow she's tall!" but guys make fun of me for being small.

I don't think I'd change my height since being able to reach the top shelf on my own makes life easier.

I'd be lying through my teeth if I said that being taller than me wasn't an attractive quality in men, though.

Anonymous 6562

>guys make fun of me for being short
jfc, are your male friends giants or are you Scandinavian or something?
I'm a leaf and you'd be the size of an average guy here. I'm a tad shorter than you and still taller than 1 in 10 men kek.
>inb4 tall shaming
No harm meant, tall is good. Not less feminine or anything, etc.

Anonymous 6574


lmao probably, I blend in with my sheets pretty well.

I live in Texas, not sure what the averages are here but most other girls I meet are somewhere around my height. Most of my male friends are at least 6 feet tall

Hey, I'm the same weight/height as her! (In the process of losing 5-10 lbs though). My diet:

>half-serving of Vector granola (the one with 20g protein in every serving) – about 145 kcal
>handful of blueberries/blackberries with the granola (I don't count these calories, they're negligible)
>sometimes, a tub of yogurt, either Greek or regular – about 100 kcal

>1 medium honeycrisp apple – 130 kcal
>1 wrap w/ 100-kcal tortilla, 30kcal of dressing, 30kcal of deli meat, and 50kcal of cheese (also lettuce/tomato, but those calories I ignore) – 210 kcal

>quarter-filet of salmon + green beans, cherry tomatoes, and baby potatoes (w/ spices and olive oil drizzled, then baked in the oven) – approx. 350 kcal

I'm sorry, I know i'm not fat, i'd just rather be a bit slimmer, please don't do anything bad, I don't carry weight well or evenly and basically none of it is muscle

Anonymous 6582

>5'7" 132
Lol. Absolutely not, but I can understand wanting to be a bit thinner. I'm the same height and used to be around the same weight a couple years ago before I gained a fuck ton of weight, and I remember thinking to myself that although I definitely wasn't fat that I was a bit curvier than I'd like to be (I had a small waist/flat stomach but was definitely a little thicc in the thighs and had decent sized boobs).

There's nothing wrong with wanting to be skinny instead of curvy but don't for a second believe you're fat, dear God.

I just bought one a couple of weeks ago for acne scars. I feel like it has helped to some extent,the scars have faded a little bit. Although the one I bought was a 1 mm one.

Anonymous 6536

I'm curious about these too. I have thin skin though and one of the reviews said it isn't good for that.

Anonymous 6578

Scratch that I'm getting cosmelan done, the results are insane! I'd recommend anyone who has melasma or any other skin pigment issues to look into it. It's quite pricey so I don't plan on getting it done a lot, I also plan on getting Groots forumla #3 to use as a deterrent to keep it from returning. I already use 0.25 tretinoin and 4% hydroquinone but it's a better alternative since it contains 12% - 8% hydroquinone, kojic acid, tretinoin, hydrocortison along with other helpful ingredients all concocted into one. Groot forumla #3 is significantly cheaper as well only costing 50 dollars, the downside is that it's meant to be used only for a single month however given the high dosage of hydroquinone that's understandable.

I currently use biore watery essence 50 spf as a sunscreen but apparently it doesn't protect against UV-A rays which are responsible for tanning and melanin product, it only works against UV-B rays. So I'll be looking into getting a new sunscreen that counteracts this.

Anonymous 6579

I'm trying to start being more consistent with skincare, but can someone tell me the point of toner and why I need to use it twice a day?

I get cleanser (for removing makeup/excess oil) and moisturizer (making your skin soft/some spf) but why is toner a part of most basic skincare routines :thinking emoji:

Anonymous 6580


The explanation that has made the most sense to me is: imagine your skin is a sponge. will a dry sponge or a wet sponge absorb more moisturizer/exfoliant/etc.?

It also is supposed to get rid of any cleanser residue on your face, I think

Do you usually find that sizing is okay when ordering shoes from AE? And is the quality on par with the pricing?

Anonymous 5503

Literally all my shoes are from ali express besides like 3 pair .. and I have a lot of shoes . The sizing is good. I’ve only had issues like 2 times with them being too skinny. I wear a size 8 and sometimes get 8.5 depending on the measurements. The quality is beyond the price for a lot of the shoes. And the ones that did eventually fall apart , they did after a lot of wear and I just buy the same ones again lol. Worth 25$ ether way.

Recently got this for $4 due to coupons. Decently well-made and cute!
I want to get shoes for AE but nervous about the sizing.

Will cardio make my legs too skinny?
I am trying to lose weight overall using a calorie deficit+cardio. However, I tend to hold a lot of body fat in my tummy/hips when compared to my lower body. (Terrible hip dips, knees noticeably larger than my thighs, thigh gap when I've lost too much mass in the past despite still being on the upper end of normal)
I've been trying to incorporate some weight training (goblet squats, etc) 2-3 days a week in the effort to look less like a skinnyfat with chicken legs when I do lose the weight, but I'm afraid that the cardio will kill any potential leg gains or all the leg work will exacerbate the problem further.
Should I just not do cardio and rely on diet to make a calorie deficit? Should I just accept I'm gonna lose a lot of muscle mass in my legs and worry about getting it back later?

Anonymous 6419

Cardio will make your everything skinny. If you want beef, pump iron. Keep going til you even out. Depending on the lifestyle you had before your journey, you could definitely be "uneven" in terms of physicality. Simply working out is the best choice if you want to get big. If you don't, go ahead with the diet.


Meditation general Anonymous 6557[Reply]

Meditation is probably the only thing between me and daily nervous breakdowns.
Miners who get their Zen on,
What time of day do you like to meditate?
Where do you like to meditate?
Do you aim to be a blank slate or do you focus on a particular thought, image, mantra, etc?
How long have you been meditating?
What benefits have you noticed in your life?

I’ll start :
I prefer daily in the early morning in my house with the sun rising in the windows but if I’m particularly stressed or anxious then whenever is convenient will do.

I try to keep my mind blank and in tune with my body. I mentally put intrusive thoughts into imaginary boxes for storage.

I have been meditating for closing to 2 years and over time I have become less stressed, more socially capable, and more focused

Do you do your nails regularly?

Anonymous 6516

Yeah, bite them regularly.

Anonymous 6517

I work in a kitchen, I can't have long or painted nails (not even clear polish) and if I did they'd chip in ten minutes.
Everyone in my restaurant looks like a butch prison wife, me included.

Anonymous 6519

No. I will sometimes polish them but my nails are short and shitty because I have a job and want to be able to finger myself at night.
Men will sometimes tell me how unattractive my butch nails are which is unfortunate I guess, but I don't care nearly enough to do anything about it.

Anonymous 6535

Lol this.

Oh hi, me too. It really helped the nail biting as it is impossible to do that at work.

I'm off work for a few months though so I found myself biting them again. I started doing the stick on acrylics myself so I can't get at them. I just do it once a week, and let my nails recover when they come off after about four days. Before I started this job I used to do them all the time and I was pretty good at it so I'm kind of happy I get to do them again for a little bit.

Anonymous 6556

Not regularly, but I'd like to. I just did my nails today and looking at them makes me happy.
