Feminism and 50 Shades of Grey

Have you ever tried been dominated in the bedroom? It is so much fun. I guy can go Christian Grey on me any day but this has been a fetish long before Christian Grey and will be long after however some guys seem to have taken this dominating to another level.

This new “fashion” seems to have men confused on how to treat women outside of the bedroom too. Just because I like being controlled and told what to do inside the bedroom does not mean you can control my life outside.

Reactions to Becoming an Egg Donor & The Mother Instinct Myth

A while ago, I decided to donate my eggs. I’ve written another post on that here.  I chose to keep this mostly private, but I told a few close friends and family members.

Using them for their rightful purpose: Getting a Little Eggy

Last year, I decided to donate some of my eggs.

But for myself, my mind has always been very clear – primarily because I do not want children. I cannot see that changing, but for all you sceptics out there who believe that as a woman I absolutely MUST and WILL want children as I grow older, rest assured that donating my eggs does not in any way affect my ability to have my own children if my mind does change.
