‘There’s noth­ing to be ashamed of’

Woman (UK) - - Women Like You -

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. ✱
