The advice column from Hades

Hi there, I’m Abigail Imogen Drake, the slut who puts the 'vice' in 'advice'.

We have a question that crops up frequently in advice columns. This is from AnxiousAnnie92.

Dear Abbie,
My hubster and I are trying for our first baby and it's been several months without any luck. I've read that some positions are better than others for conceiving but a lot of the advice seems to go against each other. Please help.

OK, firstly for those who are surprised at a trans woman answering a question like this I'll point out I've been a parent, a step-parent, and…

Hi there, I’m Abigail Imogen Drake, the trans bitch domme of your dreams.

The topic this week wasn’t presented as a question as such. Instead it arose following a conversation with a dear friend and fellow writer, MaddieRose. What came from that conversation was of sufficient import that I thought it was worth exploring here.

Maddie had recently written a pretty horny little piece for Sexpressions’ big sister for cheaters, The Scarlett Letter. You can find the piece here. It’s a fairly straightforward tale of sex while restrained. I already had a reservation or two with the piece as it…

The Lisbon is a basement pub in Liverpool (so ignore the fitness place above!). Over a hundred and thirty years old with ornate décor, it’s been at the centre of Liverpool’s gay scene for an age. So where else was a clueless, bored, lonely transgender lesbian going to go to be around her own kind?

Hi there, I’m Abigail Imogen Drake, your Fairy Transmother.

OK. Look. It's a holiday weekend on both sides of the Atlantic. And I have more of these columns lined up, one of which I'd have preferred to publish sooner. But I'm a day late so let me answer this quickie. I've heard it plenty but it came up this weekend (again. Sigh) so let's get to it.

What does 'CIS' stand for?
(As in… cisgender.)

So, us trans people are a small minority. It can easily seem that the terminology in our tiny community is exclusive. It's not.

Cis is…

Hi there, I’m Abigail Imogen Drake, the personification of ‘be careful what you wish for’.

We have quite the question this week. It comes from D.H. (Lawrence? 'darling hubby'? Dick Hole? Sorry luv, couldn't resist. This last might be apropos)

Hi Abbie,
A friend of mine mentioned he'd tried urethral sounding and recommended it. I was embarrassed to ask but I've no idea what this even is. Should I try it?

Let's get right to it then. D.H. Urethral sounding is the practice of inserting an object into the urethra (the tube that connects your bladder to the outside world…

Hi there, I’m Abigail Imogen Drake, the awful big sister you always wish you’d had.

This week I want to take a broad look at one of the most generic questions that any advice column is guaranteed to be asked in some way, shape or form…

Am I Normal?

Short answer? Yeah. Probably. But what fun is the short answer?

It’s a question I get asked a lot on Quora, especially among the baby trans people who are looking for guidance either prior to, or early on in transition. …

Hi there, I’m Abigail Imogen Drake, your Fairy Transmother. This week’s question comes from Louise, another writer here on Medium.

Hey, Mrs. Capricious, I am a trans woman that still loves men. I much prefer them and I am on HRT right now. Any advice for me?

OK. That’s quite a broad question, Louise. I’d love to talk more in depth about love and sex when you’re transgender. But for now, let’s concentrate on you and I’ll return to the wider issues at a later date.

First things first, Louise… give yourself permission to be OK with your sexuality. You’ve…

Introducing the advice column from Hades

Hi there. My name is Abigail Imogen Drake. And this is Sex AID. See what I did there?

This is going to be a regular column here on Sexpressions, the publication for the clever bad folks. I aim to answer questions or debate topics relating to all aspects of sex and relationships, treading a fine line between humour and sincerity.

It’s Dear Abbie for fuckers who find sex both interesting and hilarious.

‘All well and good, Abbie. But what the hell do you know, and why should we trust you?’

Ok, firstly go with Reagan, Satan never rest his soul…

Mrs. Capricious

Capricious by name, steadfast by nature. Trans femme dyke. Smutsmith. Provocateur. Witch. Poet. Slut. Idiot. Kicking names and taking ass.
