About Me
I came to the U.S. at age of 12 with my mother. We settled in sunny Florida, which was quite a contrast to Minsk. I have always been fascinated by sex and relationships. Sex Secrets is where I share sex advice, experiences, news, and sometimes a little humor. If you have a question about sex that you prefer not to post in the comments, you can email me at svetlanaivano(at)yahoo.com.

  • Jason says:

    Well I’d agree with that. :-)

    What about blind people?

  • Svetlana Ivanova says:

    That would make an interesting study if they could get the funding for it.
