About Me

My name’s Beth, and I’m an editor, journalist and copywriter based in Hampshire. I’m an avid believer in 90s fashion, the revitalising power of dancing in my underwear, and I adore interesting memoirs written by women and non-binary people – especially if they’re about sex, friendship, or both.

Currently, I’m a sex & relationships columnist for Restless Magazine and a copywriter for a large tech company. I spend my 9-5 producing online tools and copywriting for small business owners to use, then spend my evenings, lunch times and weekends writing content for me (and for you!).

You can read my stream-of-consciousness tweets at @bethmayashley, watch me try to be a little more curated and pretty on Instagram, or shoot me an email at beth.ash_97@hotmail.co.uk.

The ‘It’s My Pleasure’ Column

As a journalist, I write for an array of publications! I'm currently a sex and relationships columnist for Restless Magazine, where I've created a series called 'It's My Pleasure' because I'm as interested in pleasure as I am with plays on words. The It’s My Pleasure column is a series of articles exploring female intimacy. It discovers the nuances of solo sex, of personal sexual liberation journeys, and most importantly, aims to change our outdated views on female pleasure. If you're interested, read my column below!
