I wish I could remember when it happened; the moment I was switched off and I lost all desire to do 'IT' anymore. I definitely wanted to do it the day I conceived my first child, so at least that is somewhere to start...
You often find when you're dating in your forties that men are one of the above. When you meet the divorcee, more often than not, he's come out of a long marriage and has children who are almost ready to fly the nest.
We live in an age of alternative facts. And so this article will begin with the premise that there are knowable truths, separate from our personal p...
After learning that there is a penis museum in Iceland, but no vagina museum anywhere in the world, Florence Schechter decided she needed to make one. In this vlog, Florence talks discusses the reservations people have when talking about vaginas, the huge bias there is in science when researching sex organs and why we ultimately need a vagina museum.
In theory, the media should exist to represent people. To tell their stories and share their struggles. Whether its film, TV or advertisements, they should be representative of the world that we live in. Unfortunately though, they are not. As much as people will try to preach that we have come so far and that the diversification of our media has greatly improved, it has a lot further to go.
When my wife said she was returning to work fulltime, I silently celebrated. Now I'd finally have time to do all the things I wanted to do: write my G...
Despite not being the most popular option for men or women, the "three date rule" is more popular when Brits think about other people's romantic entanglements. When asked how many times they thought a newly dating couple should go out before having sex for the first time, 16% of Brits gave three dates as the most appropriate milestone, including 18% of men and 14% of women.
As women, we are encouraged to be more proactive about our health, seeking medical advice if we have a problem, yet I speak to women every week who have been dismissed by their GP for even wanting to enjoy a good sex life after medical interventions or just because they are in their 70s.
Now I'm not just an angry woman, I'm an angry mother and an angry feminist, and I have to assume that anyone who isn't angry simply doesn't know the truth, because how can anybody good, anybody who cares about other people, not be angry?
We laugh at the sitcoms when, during intercourse, couples start discussing the shopping list, or on staring vacantly up at the ceiling remember it really does need painting. We laugh because we recognise this scenario. Momentarily we consider spicing up our love lives, planning romantic evenings that'll get the old juices flowing again. But then that hormone gremlin says, "Nah! Can't be bothered. I really would rather have a cup of tea".
People believe this festival is associated with fertility, luck and mental success. It is also believed that this ritual would shield against the contraction of sexually transmitted infections. This centuries' old tradition is generally held in early spring and is symbolic of new life.
Being South-Asian and Muslim are not to blame here, I'm merely acknowledging that as a female, South Asian Muslim, my intersecting identities have enabled me to notice gender inequality first-hand and experience the troublesome nature of sexual politics that have affected women for generations and are still affecting many of us today.
What was the most important thing you learned about sex before you did it? Use a condom, maybe? STIs? Pregnancy? Which bit 'goes' where? If you had good sex education, maybe you learned the importance of consent, or a bit about love and relationships.
"What's that?" asked my three-year old son, head skew-whiff. Swamped by bubbles and an army of dinosaurs from the Cretaceous period, he was pointing at my lower regions with a Gallimimus in his hand. We were both in the bath. "Erm," I replied...
Looking back on my early teen years I can safely say that my sex education lessons were to put it lightly, lacking. We pretty much put a condom on a cucumber, got shown a slideshow of STD's and that was it.
