‘There’s nothing to be ashamed of’
Laura morningstar, 34, lives in Cheshire. She has two sons.
When people find out how many people I’ve had sex with I know their opinion of me changes. It’s not that I go around advertising the fact I’ve slept with 100 men, but if I’m asked, I won’t lie. After all, it’s nothing to be ashamed of.
I was 17 when my first son was born. As a single mum, I vowed to give him the best opportunities in life, so I went to university to study nursing. My parents took care of him when I was in lectures, and every couple of weekends so I could enjoy an evening with my friends. Free of my responsibilities, I thought nothing of going home with men I’d meet in clubs.
The truth was I loved having sex. And I loved that there was no commitment.
I had a couple of long-term relationships, but in between I’d always be out, looking for a new conquest.
My last relationship lasted 15 months, and ended when I was pregnant with my second son, Theo, born in May 2010.
In May 2016, I decided to become a sexuality coach, working with women trying to connect with their sexuality.
For me sex is an amazing way to connect with another person. People will always judge you but there are so many new experiences to be had, I don’t plan on stopping any time soon. ✱
