What's in a name?

My blog is less than a week old and already I've felt it necessary to get a makeover. Well, when I say a makeover what I really mean is a change of name. 'Sexy Smilin'' was alright but it was very much a makeshift name. It is kind of twee and was pretty much arrived at on the spur of the moment. I don't know how much thought you bloggers out there put into your titles but I have been vexing over what to call this all week.

I began by asking myself what I want to achieve with this blog. In my opening post I suggested it would be about my online sexlife. Fair enough. But I want it to be more than that. As a revolutionary feminist and socialist (you cannot really be one without being the other) I want to be political and critical without crudely forcing my politics down readers throats. So the likes of 'Sex and Socialism', 'Fucking and Feminism' and other names of that ilk were out. And I want to talk about other sex related issues - to indulge in what blogger/model/indie pornographer Audacia Ray calls a 'nerdy passion for sex'.

Luckily a woman who's been dead for nearly 200 years stepped in to help me. I'm reading Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice' at the moment, which has inspired me to rip off the name of one of her other famous novels. So let me welcome you to Sense and Sensuality - I hope I'm able to confound, captivate, anger, and tease you all in equal measure. So, let's talk about sex ....
