The Pearl Diaries: About Me

Hey there! Welcome to my blog, The Pearl Diaries.

I’m going to let you in on a secret.

I’m 30 years old, and I’ve really struggled with a low sex drive at points in my life.

When I realised my fanny was MIA, I did what any self respecting woman would do. Obviously, I googled it.

And, wow.

I imagine if you are here you will certainly recognize what happens to your life (and your search history) when you type in “loss of libido”.

My screen was flooded with floppy willies, promises of Viagra, reams of information about older men and their lack of testosterone, but very little on women.

The little corner of the internet devoted to libido-boosting also tries to peddle various bits of medication, foods to eat or sex positions to try to improve your sex drive. But a part of me feels like this doesn’t even scratch the surface. And I sat there and thought- if only it were that easy.

And I also wondered…

And why are no other women talking about this? 

That’s why I started this blog.

A little about me:

My name is Laura. I live in London and blog part-time about my experiences and about whats out there to help women like me.

I don’t pretend to know all the answers. I’m not a medical professional, or a sex therapist. But, I do know how it feels to struggle to want to have sex in a world where sex sells. And from my journey to understand my own sex drive, I know I can help you too.

New here? Get started with my first blog post “The Pearl Diaries: An Essential Guide to Understanding Your Sex Drive”.

Lots of love,

Mother Pearl xx



***Disclaimer alert***

This blog was set up as a space for talking about the lost libido.

Because I’m a woman, the site is mostly aimed at female low sex drive. But if you’re male and its useful for you, feel free to join in too!

Equally, this site is pretty hetero in nature. But please don’t feel left out if you don’t have sex with men… any opinions are welcome 🙂
