So, it’s Lifestyle Week on Uborka and I’ve been asked to don my very best Agony Aunt hat in order to help you, dear reader, with your problems. Why have I been asked to do this, you may well ask. Allow me to introduce myself…
My name is Lori Smith (aka @lipsticklori) and I have been blogging since 2002. I am an online writer who specialises in fashion – specifically vintage/ethical and lingerie – feminism, sex and relationships. I have appeared on Channel 4’s More Sex Tips For Girls, was interviewed about open relationships for The Guardian and Glamour Magazine, and was quoted in The Metro talking about sex blogging. As well as my own site – Rarely Wears Lipstick – I have written for contemporary feminism site The F-Word, online women’s magazine BitchBuzz, and have had articles published in Geeked and SLiNK magazines.
I have also spoken at a number of events: I was on the fashion panel at SHINE 2011, the UK’s leading unconventional conference for socially-minded entrepreneurs; I was a speaker at sex blogger and erotica writer’s conference Eroticon in 2012 and 2013; I hosted a session on creative costumes at BurlyCamp 2012; and I co-hosted a session about sex blogging at Cybher12. On top of all that, I was a finalist in the Writer category of the Erotic Awards in 2012 and I am currently studying MA History and Culture of Fashion (part-time) at London College of Fashion. No, I don’t know where I find the time for all this either!
So, if you want to ask me any questions about sex, relationships, body image, feminism or fashion, I am at your service. I do hope I can help.
