My life in sex: ‘We’ve done it on beaches, in a park, on a balcony’

I’ve always enjoyed sex and been comfortable with my body, but several years of unhappy marriage robbed me of a lot of confidence. I got divorced three years ago, aged 38, and thought it would be a tall order to find someone right for me; a real physical click felt crucial but rare.

I’ve been seeing my current partner for two years and he welcomes my expression, both verbal and physical, of my desire for him. The first time we had sex was at his place of work. We had known each other for a long time, and had both fantasised about this, so when he finally laid me down on the floor there, it felt so right. It was clear from the beginning that our sexual contact need not be limited to the bedroom.
