Nikki Gemmell Doesn't Want To Have Sex Anymore

View descriptionShare

Listen to the rest of Mia's conversation with Nikki here...

A few weeks ago, an article in The Australian entitled ‘Sex? I’m Over It’ infiltrated the group chats of Gen X women all across the country.

In it, author Nikki Gemmell put into words a feeling that so many other women have felt at some point in their lives: I’m tired, I don’t want to have sex, and I just want my own bed.

20 years and 4 kids on from her groundbreaking erotic novel The Bride Stripped Bare, Nikki has some different thoughts about sex. Mainly, that she’s over it. And she just wants a good night’s sleep.

Nikki is honest, hilarious, and truly has no filter. This is her story.


With thanks to Nikki Gemmell.
