Post40Bloggers - maths genius

Older couple, no sex
Hand on heart, there was a time in my marriage when I wouldn’t have noticed if my vagina had fused over. (Yes, just like pierced ears when you stop putting earrings in – the hole closes up.) With the demands of home, young children, work, family, friends and not losing...
