The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water.
Last night we had successful sex, yay! So MAYBE we are still in this month! Since my ovulation was late last month, I pushed back my expected date by 2 days so I’m thinking I should ovulate today if I am right. We will find out in 2+ weeks I suppose.
Today I am going to the medicaid office for Alma’s medicaid. I am dropping Alma off with Michael’s mom and headed straight there. Hopefully it wont take long since I am getting there early and also, I have everything filled out already. I just have to turn it in. Then I plan on going thrifting! My birthday is the 28th. I have some bday money already so I figured I’ll look for a pretty new desk or just whatever other neat stuff I can find. I don’t get to go thrifting often, because my fav places to go are an hour away and with Alma…. it’s not easy to go alone. So that’ll be fun! :)
If someone makes you feel obligated or forced to do something you don’t want to, you may be experiencing coercion. By definition, sexual coercion is “the act of using pressure, alcohol or drugs, or force to have sexual contact with someone against his or her will” and includes “persistent attempts to have sexual contact with someone who has already refused.”
Think of sexual coercion as a spectrum or a range. It can vary from someone verbally egging you on to someone actually forcing you to have contact with them. It can be verbal and emotional, in the form of statements that make you feel pressure, guilt or shame. You can also be made to feel forced through more subtle actions. For example, your partner might:
- Make you feel like you owe them — for example, because you’re in a relationship, because you’ve had sex before, because they spent money on you or bought you a gift, because you go home with them
- Give you compliments that sound extreme or insincere as an attempt to get you to agree to something
- Badger you, yell at you, or hold you down
- Give you drugs and alcohol to loosen up your inhibitions
- Play on the fact that you’re in a relationship, saying things such as: “Sex is the way to prove your love for me” or “If I don’t get sex from you I’ll get it somewhere else”
- React negatively (with sadness, anger or resentment) if you say no or don’t immediately agree to something
- Continue to pressure you after you say no
- Make you feel threatened or afraid of what might happen if you say no
- Try to normalize their sexual expectations — for example, “I need it, I’m a guy.”
In a relationship where sexual coercion is occurring, there is a lack of consent, and the coercive partner doesn’t respect the boundaries or wishes of the other.
I think Im already gonna be out this month. We’ve had sex the past 2 days but Michael never finished since his meds make it difficult now.
I’m supposed to ovulate tomorrow or the 21st. I wanted to try again today, but he is still not home and its getting late…. he will want to just go to bed probably.
