So yesterday I decided to write about blow jobs

It all got a bit blue yesterday (I love that expression, think I got it from Peter Kay).

I wrote this piece – 24 things all women think while giving a blow job.

I was quite pleased with it to be honest.

I mean, I’m fairly confident at least some of the points represent straight womens’ experience of giving head.

Writing about sex in this way online is interesting.

On the one hand you’re putting it out to the entire world – potential employers, former teachers, strangers, close family.

In some ways it’s a bit like going to a nudist beach – weirdly liberating.

Although, maybe it’s not like that at all because maybe not everyone on the beach is nude. In fact, maybe it’s a public beach and you’re the only one stripping off.

It’s a little worrying.

As soon as I filed it I joked to a colleague I bet I’d now be known as BJ Girl.

The thing is, we all have sex but, as a woman, it seems you can’t win either way.

If you say you love it then you’re a slut. If you say you don’t you’re frigid or bad in bed.

Any teenage girl can explain the tightrope you walk, trying to be sexy, but not too sexy.

It’s interesting writing about sex, even in a jokey way like this listicle, because people seem to have such strong opinions about what goes on in other people’s bedrooms and what women should or shouldn’t think about sex.

Either that or they were Googling porn and came across a story instead.
