I’m Lanae St.John, the mama behind The MamaSutra. These are some of the questions I get asked all the time. Maybe these are questions you have too. As a divorced mother of two tween-aged daughters, I’ve had my own challenging questions – most of them have inspired posts on my blog. Just like lots of you, I’ve stumbled through some tough moments, like the time my daughter found my vibrator and questioned me about it. I’ve had wins. And missteps. One of my daughters even shared her learnings and we made that a post. All along, I’ve had to learn how to date and be sexual, while making sure I am the best parent I can be and give my children all the information I can for them to make good decisions when it comes time for that.
The truth is, we are sexual beings from birth until death. Parents don’t—and shouldn’t!—stop being sexual once there are kids in the picture. Parenting can be hard as you try to stay connected as lovers. Or if you’re a single parent, maybe trying to have a personal life too. And then, just when you think you have it figured out, your kids start asking YOU questions—where did I come from? What is masturbation? What is anal sex? What is a fetish?
I know how difficult those questions can be! And I know how hard it can be to stay sexual yourself as a parent. That’s why I created The MamaSutra.
So, what would you like to know?
