'The day I first had sex...'

WORDS BY COURTNEY THOMPSON

inner faux: the foe

The day I first had sex I was on my knees.


The day I first had sex I ate a burrito for dinner. 
 

The day I first had sex I tried to suppress performance anxiety.
 

The day I first had sex I failed to suppress performance anxiety.
 

The day I first had sex only my top came off.
 

The day I first had sex I struggled to hide my own jealousy.
 

The day I first had sex I had coffee, twice.
 

The day I first had sex I was wearing a tampon.
 

The day I first had sex my favourite leather jacket was on the ground.  
 

The day I first had sex my mouth was dry.
 

The day I first had sex I made my emotional labour available.
 

The day I first had sex I made my emotional labour exploitable.
 

The day I first had sex I prioritized their pleasure.  
 

The day I first had sex I was angry for my best friend.  
 

The day I first had sex I was not penetrated.
 

The day I first had sex I felt like less of a feminist.
 

The day I first had sex I was wet.


The day I first had sex I didn’t come.
 

The day I first had sex I started to truly realise my internalised misogyny.
 

The day I first had sex I started to actively ignore my internalised misogyny.
 

The day I first had sex I felt proud I didn’t gag.
 

The day I first had sex I was on my knees.
