It's a sad day when I - a journalism student - am able to say with absolute confidence that I know more about what makes "news" than India's leading national paper.

Whatever your shape, size or age, if you're a woman - you've probably wanted, and perhaps even tried, to change your body. So, why is this? Why do we see them as a 'something', an object, to be abused, treated badly, and even fought with. Something that can even determine our level of self worth.

There are a number of issues surrounding the emergence of female sexual dysfunction (FSD) and the rush by pharmaceutical companies to find a treatment. Right now, I feel a little like the kids in The Cat in the Hat, looking around and saying "this mess is so big and so deep and so tall, we cannot clean it up, there is no way at all".

Taylor Swift is, in many ways, far from a negative role model for young women, but the near fanatical devotion she inspires in many of her legions of supporters illustrates that the message she is giving out is one that is likely to hit home, and it isn't a healthy one.

The front page of the Daily Telegraph, and newspapers across the world, report breathlessly the famous G-Spot has at last been uncovered. Dr Adam Ostrzenski, a Gynaecologist based in Florida, who has apparently published a research paper in the May issue of the 'Journal of Sexual Medicine', seems to claim he's found it.
