New(ish) mum Samantha Dooey-Miles is charting her life in doodles. This week, romance ain’t dead.

Remember when you were a teenager and the conversations you had about sex were focused on whether you’d done it or not? Now I have a baby, that line of chat is making a big comeback in my group of friends.

The ones who are parents want to keep an eye on the average number of performances per calendar month to be sure they’re not letting things slip. The ones who haven’t had kids want me to reveal what a barren wasteland my vagina is now the baby has left it.

For me, it’s not the baby that has an impact on whether I have sexy time or not. It’s my tendency to be an idiot that gets in the way. Just like when I was a teenager.
