I’m Rose, a YouTuber and Podcaster and one half of the married entertainment duo, Rose and Rosie. It’s really important to me that same sex relationships are seen and normalised and that’s why I’m proud to be an ambassador for Durex because as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I have grown up with a lack of sexual education, and have had to navigate same-sex relationships on my own.
Throughout my teenage years, it was a real struggle to find any reliable or safe source of information for same sex sexual relationships. It’s imperative that this is supplied to ensure members of the LGBTQ+ community feel safe, seen and valid. Knowledge is power, and it’s important to feel secure knowing your identity has been recognised and respected, and there’s sources of education out there for you!
I’m an adamant believer that love is equal and cannot be measured. Everyone deserves respect, equality and the freedom to express their love without judgement. This is basic human rights.
By creating the My Sex My Way campaign, Durex will be able to get first hand accounts of the issues the LGBTQ+ community face, and be better allies. Everyone should feel safe, sexy and confident when it comes to sex, and we can only feel this way when shame, embarrassment and lack of knowledge is no longer an issue.
For me, My Sex, My Way is about being in a place of self acceptance and confidence, where I can truly relax with my partner and have fun. My wife and I have been together 10 years, but we always manage to have a laugh together and that leads to the best sex!
