The Sexy Side To Febfast

When I got asked to be an ambassador for this year’s febfast, I wondered why on earth they wanted a Sexologist and Relationship Expert to promote their cause. Then I started to think about how drinking had impact on my own experiences…   Looking back, there have been times where alcohol-induced confidence encouraged me towards the wrong man at the wrong time. There have also been times where my confidence was so low that my aim was to boost it with the bottle.  I can tell you from first-hand experience that confidence from Cosmos does not last forever and eventually rubs off (often when the sun starts to rise).

If only more 13 year olds could think like her, actually if more people in general could think like her, the world would be a better place.   She might not have a doctorate in Human Sexuality, the right to vote, drive, drink, or has even finished school but this 13 year old girl has a valid point and a maturity I would expect to find or would hope to find in an adult.  You don’t have to be a sexologist to educate people, just an open mind and the courage to voice your opinion!  …
