Welcome to Shy & CuriousExplore sex, relationships and self-love without having to hide your Google search history
In honor of my mother Juraidah Rahmat’s legacy and our unorthodox penchant for oversharing, I wanted to create a safe space where there’s no such thing as a stupid question when it comes to sex, love and our bodies.
Who is Shy & Curious for?
If you have an inkling that it’s for those who may be more private or new to this realm – bingo!
We’ll take care of the research and tricky questions so we can share honest stories and insightful articles with you. However what’s most important is as long as you’re here with an open mind to learn and un-learn what you’ve been taught about sex education, love and self-care, we’re happy to have you!
The articles and stories on Shy & Curious will start off from a heterosexual viewpoint but as the journey continues, we hope to get more inclusive and diverse voices with contributions from the community. A few ground rules on the site:
1. This is a judgment-free zone so no shaming, guilt-tripping or fear-mongering allowed.
2. We’re not certified experts but will do our due diligence on the topic and fact-check our articles to the best of our abilities.
3. Unless otherwise stated, viewpoints are personal and contributors can choose to be anonymous when sharing their stories.
We’ve laid out topics that we thought would be interesting for now but we’ll tweak and edit as the community grows and get your feedback. Shy & Curious is your shared space so we naturally want to make sure that the articles and conversations resonate with you.
