Through no fault of their own, for many couples who have been trying to conceive for a long period of time - often for many months and even years - the actual physical act of sexual intercourse can become quite perfunctory or regimented.
Currently a bill is being passed through parliament, and it wants to control your sex life. The Digital Economy bill, widely touted as a means to limit children's access to online pornography, faces its third reading on Monday, 28th November - the final stop before it becomes law.
Have you ever said something like "I don't fancy black girls" or "Asian guys aren't my type"? Have you ever smacked "no rice, no spice" on your dating profile? Well, here's a news flash for you - you're being racist. The good news? Society doesn't seem too bothered by it.
On the last day of asexual awareness week, the Guardian published a short article authored by an anonymous ace. The subheader read "I don't judge you for wanting to have sex, so why is it okay for you to write me off as weird?"
I personally interact with hundreds of women on a regular basis who have lived, and are living, through the shattering discovery that their partners and husbands have a secret sexual life. I am committed to giving them a voice so I asked them what they would tell you if they had the chance. Below is a summary of the major points they wanted you to know.
As an ex-sex worker I can say from first hand experience that it's extremely risky and unsafe in this country to operate in the industry. It's one o...
The way men reacted to even the side effects of contraception, makes me very skeptical that they would handle the enormous pressure that comes with taking regular contraception. I would love to live in an ideal world where men could be trusted to take contraceptives, but as far as this entire study has shown, I don't think we're anywhere near ready.
For the purpose of getting indecorous and sticky, and living happily ever after, two people used to be selected for each other by their wiser elders. ...
On any given night out, a huge chunk of us is sending people updates on the fun we're having, proving we're part of nightlife, but ultimately being ever more present on social media.

It's not just the fate of the free world that will be decided in November; the entire porn industry could very well hang in the balance too. In California, voters will be asked to decide "yes" or "no" on Proposition 60, aka the "condoms in porn" bill.
When it comes to sex, I'm very vanilla - I'm happiest in missionary. The closest I've come to apparatus, is when a boyfriend put ice-cubes in his mouth, for some x-rated Frozen fun. So when I arrive at London Fetish Weekend, I'm as out of place as Katie Hopkins at a body positivity workshop.
It would be great if everyone who was having sex was having fun sex and we hope that we can work towards a world where that is the case, but that isn't the world we live in now. So if you're not having fun sex, you're not alone and there are things that will help.

'I'm going CRAZY! Whats WRONG with me!'. If I had a pound for every woman I had heard say something like that after discovering their partners secret sexual behaviours I would never need to work another day!
Yes, if there's a theme running throughout Transparent, it's that as humans - young or old, male or female - we're constantly trying to fit in and mostly we never quite manage to do so, which I guess is a truism the world over, no matter who you are; even an aspiring Prime Minister.
