Just when you think you know pretty much everything there is to know about sex and your bedroom looks like you played supermarket sweep through Ann Summers, your girl throws that awkward curveball and whispers 'talk dirty to me,' in your ear. If this catches you off guard you can find yourself naked, mumbling 'I'm going to umm put my umm you know....

The word "tradition" is so often misunderstood to mean the dragging heels of a conservative past, whereas modern traditions actually include our calendar customs such as Halloween and April Fools, our music and dance, our games and sports, almost all the foods we eat, the stories we tell, and so much more.

Cosmo's Lesbian Sex Positions: The Sad Silence Which Followed

The sex positions are drawn as cartoons. It's worth pointing out that the pictures which feature alongside many of Cosmo's sex tips for straight couples are of real-life people. The fact they've used cartoons to illustrate these "mind-blowing" lesbian sex positions is cringe-worthy, creepy and actually quite offensive.

We Need Pride

I'm tired of students and young people as a collective being constantly ignored or patronised by the state... people forget that if you constantly damage the spirit of a generation and illegitimatise our opinions, it will demolish the hope and drive of those who not only have the potential to make huge positive impact in the UK, but worldwide.

How Straight Are You?

Trevor Kleinhans

When I sit with my straight friends, be they single straight men or a straight couple, the conversation of "How straight are you?" invariably comes up and the best way I can explain it to them, is by describing what I call the sexuality scale. We all fit into this scale somewhere.

We've all heard the stereotypes attached to being bisexual; indecisive, confused, wanting your cake and eating it too, gay or lesbian in transition, the list goes on and on. If you identify as bisexual, it's likely that you've encountered these clichés at some point. I know that I certainly have...

Is Sexuality Innate or Socially Constructed?

Julie Bindel | Posted 23.06.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Julie Bindel

Some gay people might feel that finding a gay gene might diminish prevalent homophobia, but this is naive. Racism has not diminished because we know that blackness or whiteness is genetic. But scientists still treat us like rats in a lab and look for 'causes'. I have been told I am a lesbian because my mother smoked and drank whilst carrying me.

What happens when the party's over? I'm not talking about the old 'marriage kills romance' cliché - I'm thinking more immediate and pressing issues, like honeymoons.

Pride attracts weary cynicism, 'I don't mind lesbians and gays but why do they need to flaunt themselves like that!' This statement in itself validates the need for Pride, however, questions are worth discussing.

If I was to go and try and get my 'gayness' reversed it would probably open up a plethora of Pandora's boxes. There would be demons, there would be horror, there would be sin, lustfulness and an absolute shed load of glitter, feathers, fun and debauchery.

Accolades and controversy followed 'Blue is the Warmest Colour' after it's 2013 Cannes Palme d'Or win and I felt the need to view it again. It is raw, powerful, mesmerising and memorable and that's not for the astonishingly frank lesbian sex scenes which elicited controversy. It's for Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos's compelling performances.

Lesbian and bi ladies living in this amazing city can't really complain about a lack of events for them to attend. Sure, we all cried when Candy shut down earlier this year, but I think we can all agree that the newly opened She Soho has managed to fill that void in style, providing a great meeting and mingling space.

The Ins And Outs of Sexuality

It's hard to understand another person's preferences. For a straight man it is hard to understand why you wouldn't want a woman, the gender that you are attracted to. To be attracted to another man may seem alien and confusing. But really this is the same in not understanding those that are able to run marathons, solve complex mathematical equations, or any other activity different from yourself. That's just the way that person is.
