Sometimes, we leave sex thinking, “What exactly just happened?”
Stories of how we communicate about sex and intimacy are rare. That’s where you come in.
The New York Times is seeking your stories of miscommunication around sex for multiple projects, including an episode of our podcast The Daily. Share your story at (212) 556-8300.
Are you a young person who had an intimate experience that was anything but intimate? Divorced and confused after a night with someone you met on a freshly downloaded dating app? Married and have that thing you just never talk about? Or perhaps you’re in your 80s and can tell us a story that exemplifies how sexual communication has changed since the first time you had sex.
We’re looking for stories about sex that was troubling or awkward, hilarious or profound, from people of all ages, races, gender identities, sexualities and abilities. The point of this project is to bring our inner voices out, shedding light on where communication about sex breaks down and why.
We may use your voice mail messages in a future project or in an episode of The Daily. We will not publish your contact information. A reporter or editor might contact you to hear more about your story.
We want to hear from you. Leave us a voice mail at +1 (212) 556-8300.
