Any one read enough blogs will know one or two of those bad-girl diarists. Bad-girl diarists are using the web to reveal their sex lives to the online world. They write about sex, work, men, Valentine's Day, cooking, sex, men. Those writings, or sexblogs, often have therapeutical effect for both authors and some reader, and people will always have an interest in sexblogs because sex is something that affects all our lives.
