“How do I tell my boyfriend that I’m not ready to have sex?”

Rubyyy says: Ummmm Tell him you’re not ready to have sex! And to be honest, you probably are having sex, just because it doesn’t involve vaginal penetration by a penis, doesn’t mean it’s not sex honeyyy!

So here’s the thing… You should be dating, one day having sex, with the kind of person who you can say “I’m not ready, I love you, let’s make out” to and they’ll love you, respect you and that boundary with no expectation. Is your boyfriend that kinda guy?

It’s hard, we’re young and in love, we’re beautiful and horny but that doesn’t mean we’re ready and I’m pleased that you know that, that you can at least express to me. If it feels hard to communicate because you feel embarrassed or whatever that’s fair enough but you’re judging yourself there and probably applying someone else’s opinions or choices to how you feel about it.

You know how you feel. You’re not ready. Be the powerful young woman you are and stand on your own team, this is your body, your sex and your experience and there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t do exactly what’s right for you. Don’t give me any: “But all my friends” or “what if he” focus on you, on communicating and standing firm in what is right for you. Love and Light xxx

“I’m off to uni soon and I’m worried about making friends. I’m quite shy and not very confident at just going up to people and start talking. Any words of advice?”

Hi There!
This one is perhaps “easier said than done” but I’m going to say it anyway… Uni is there perfect place and time to meet new people and they’ll be many social opportunities, clubs and groups you can join. Join at least one last involves something you want to learn about and one that involves something you’re a pro at; more chance of meeting new folks with common or unique interests.
Also, check your language. You said outright “I’m quite shy and not very confident…” and it’s one thing to be shy or soft spoken but to accept and present to people that you’re not confident is letting you down. Why aren’t you confident? I’m sure you’re awesome! You need to examine that a little bit and BE confident!
Uni is a perfect time to reinvent yourself, I reinvented myself when I moved to London and though I was SCARED OUT OF MY MIND to move alone, to a foreign country, where I knew no one and had no friends, I did it cause I knew in the long run I would be happy.
Put yourself out there sweetheart, know you are someone worth knowing and faces the part of you that says you’re not – Best of luck! Congratulations! Love and Light! xxx

“I’ve just come out to my friends which was fine, it’s not big deal and they’re all happy for me as I’ve recently starting dating a wonderful girl, but one of my friends keeps asking how me and my girlfriend have sex! I keep telling her to stop asking and leave my sex life alone but she keeps going on about it and it’s really frustrating me! How can I tell her to stop?”

Ohhh Gawd! I wish I had an AA Yellow Bunting radio show so I could ask you more questions because, yet again, this is a tricky one. Who has the issue here I wonder? Your friend being a nosy, rude brat or you being uncomfortable explaining the basics of f-to-f sexuality.

To be honest, your “friend” sounds like a brat, if you don’t mind me saying – if she’s asking you in a way that disrespectful, intrusive or unkind.

However! She may also be totally clueless, sweetly interested and perhaps a little femme curious! Either way! You need to sit her down and spell it out.

If she’s literally so sheltered or naive/cock-fixated, perhaps she just needs a little education and wants to ask a few frank questions of her new go-to-lesbian. If she is being rude and cruel/cock-blind you need to serve her the T. Your life and sex life are none of her business unless she can approach them both with respect and love and you in turn give her access, either way, that needs to be crystal clear ASAP or, and make this clear, your friendship will suffer long term.

Congrats on coming out! Bravo! Loads of love and light to youuu xxx

What could be better than an advice blog in the form of an owl?

Aside from our own wonderful Agony Aunt – nothing! Boggle the Owl is a brilliant creation who gives level headed, practical advice to those in need.

It’s always worth the while reaching out to someone when you need help. Bottling it up inside is no good for anyone, especially you. Getting  second opinion, an outside voice, anything can really turn a situation around for the better – it helps give you perspective on your troubles and worries and sometimes you just need that little voice to say that you can overcome anything life throws at you. Because you can.

I hope you’re all well and remember, if you ever need help or a shoulder to lean on, email our Aunty Rubyyy at

Until next time,

“Recently I’ve noticed one of my friends is becoming slightly more manipulative than she used to be. We always end up doing what she wants to, when she wants to and on occasion have not gone out with certain people because she doesn’t ‘feel like it’. It bothering me more and more, but I’m not too sure how to talk to her about this!”

Hmmmmm Well, I would question the level of dependency in your relationship for a start. The fact that she is “slightly more manipulative” means you’ve always perceived her, on some level, to be manipulative. Why did you accept it? Why was that ever fine? Just check in with yourself there and be honest… On the other hand… Needing to control situations externally could be a sign of feeling a lack of control and understanding within yourself.

Perhaps your friendship needs a little space, a little breathing room; sometimes when friendships become co-dependent, as yours might be, an individual craving space may assert authority, seek control, to find some phantom peace or to enforce a boundary which they feel may give them mental or emotional space. I would take a little time for you and reassess the situation. If the behavior continues, it’s a matter of a frank and heartfelt conversation about feeling unseen, unheard within the friendship. A tricky conversation admittedly but not one you can dance around; give your feelings a measured voice and approach your friend with kindness and openness; who knows, she may be going through something, had some trauma or just need an invitation to share. Be clear in this, be balanced and really give power to you and your desired outcome! Best of luck!

“I have a small group of friends all of whom are going on holiday without me as I couldn’t afford to go this year. I didn’t think it would bother me but as their leaving date gets closer, I’m starting to feel a bit jealous and left out. Is there any way you can help the green eyes monster inside me?”

Awww babes! That’s too bad but sometimes, most times, just a small shift in attitude makes everything brighter. Be happy for your friends! Get excited for them and with them! Like all their pictures on FB and listen to the same “And then…!” stories over and over with genuine sweetness in your spirit. The message you’re sending to yourself is not only the sadness of not being able to go this time but an affirmation that you won’t ever go and that’s not the future you want SO be happy, genuinely, for your friends and remind that little green monster that your trip is coming, you’ll go on many holidays and life is sweeter when it’s lighter.

AND throw yourself a little solo soirée or invite different group of friends and make the dinner/the party a getaway theme! Or themed to the trip you’re craving! Have fun! And enjoy yourself and your space or these other friends you’re overdue to catch up with. Go easy on you, you’re working hard and your holiday will come. Believe it! Love and Light xxx

“I’m in a long term relationship [we’ve been dating for 5 years] and recently me and my partner have got into a rather boring routine that involves not a lot of sex and rarely going out together. How do we get out of this rut?”

Rubyyy says: Hello Darling! It’s natural for relationships to have ebbs and flows of passion and fun, and I think it’s great that you care and that you wanna revitalize things; show me true passion and devotion for your partner and your relationship.

I would suggest, instead of having a discussion, make some plans, take life by the reins, do something you’ve always wanted to and invite your partner a long. Sometimes it just takes getting back into the swing of things.

When it comes to the sex, mix that up to but also deep your intimacy and eroticism. Make time specifically to explore and discover sensual and sexual sensations and scenarios.

You’ve said the word “lazy” and to me that is a lazy excuse! Ha! This your life! Your partner! Your partnership! Invest in it, explore it, don’t waste the friendship and life youve built together! Enrich it and fly free in sexy, super fun love :)))
