I consider myself lucky to find a man who loves me after my marriage broke up some years back. I love him and my teenage kids like him a lot.
But recently, he turned up at the flat with a ‘present’ — a bag of sex toys! Now I’m stuck. If I keep them, I’m worried my kids will find them. But if I don’t, my lover will be hurt. What’s a girl to do?

I’m sure it’s not just the sex toys that are freaking you out, it’s the fact that you feel uncomfortable doing wild and passionate things while your teenage kids are around. Yes, they would be embarrassed, but then probably know a lot more about sex and sex toys than you think.
So, give the toys back to your man and tell him either to keep them at his place or bring them around when he visits you. And use them only when the kids are out of the house.
Above all, enjoy the experience — you can’t hold back entirely on your sex life with your lovely man until your kids leave home, can you?
