#SoSS Shout our Sh*t Saturday (self care edition)

The best part of being a sexuality blogger is building community.

Unfortunately for us, it's hard to promote our writings or events because of the puritanical society we live in. Ads don't get approved on facebook, pictures get removed from instagram, so on and so forth. But because of our supportive community we will not be silenced!!!

Here is a round up of some recent posts by other bloggers worth checking out. And as always check out the #summer100 hashtag on twitter and facebook to see new and exciting posts!
