Many people find that when they are in a committed long-term relationship their sex lives can, over time, become perfunctory, routine and habitual, with sex 'performed' at certain times and ways each week. However, all it takes is a little thought and effort to make a difference and begin to improve your sex life.
Once sex becomes associated with pain, the mere anticipation of post-coital discomfort can make a woman with endometriosis avoid sex and it is hard for their partners not to interpret this as rejection.
The world is taking two divergent paths on gay rights. In many countries there is growing acceptance of LGB&T people, and legal protection from discri...
In my opinion, the hostility that bi people experience from both straight and gay communities stems from ignorance, which is why visible role models are so vital. If there were more high profile bisexual people when I was at school, perhaps my peers wouldn't have been so vicious and mistrustful.
MTV Shuga is a sizzling sex and relationships drama and multimedia campaign for young audiences, which aims to raise awareness of HIV and Aids globally, and this fortnight I attended the premiere of season 4 of this ground breaking TV brand.
Young bisexual people need acceptance and role models to look up to in order to realise that how they feel is totally okay. For now this is a largely misunderstood sexuality with many myths and misconceptions surrounding it, and that needs to change.
Do you know what a wifelet is? By any chance, you ask yourself, is it a bit like a pikelet? Well, not exactly. Although if by pikelet you mean a sort of regional Oop North crumpet, then you're perhaps not too wide of the mark. Before you start getting ideas that this is going to be some pun-laden critique of The Great British Bake Off, sorry, but it's not.
Over the years, we have gradually learnt to be with each other in a different way, in a more present way, in a more heart-open way, in a way where we profoundly relax into each other because orgasm is not the goal, we find that another more soulful sexual energy arises.
Friday was World Sexual Health Day. A healthy relationship with your own body and sexuality is the basis of a healthy, fulfilling sex life. Masturbation should be celebrated just as much as partnered sex. So, here are three unusual ways to take pleasure in the solo orgasm.
When I speak to people about religion and sexuality, the most common response is "its okay, I have no problem. People can be who they want to be". Bearing this phrase in mind, it got me wondering why religion can't become a passionate part of Pride.
If you let the disabled person decide if and what they tell you with in conversation you won't offend anyone. Remember, for every disabled person like me, happy with their life and secure in their impairment, there will be some who are not yet ready to talk about their lives.
How do we gauge a drug's effectiveness in treating female libido? We can't measure units of desire so it's very much down to personal experience and success is anecdotal. Low sex drive is only a problem if a man or woman deem it is affecting their quality of life and relationship and that has been the case for women who have taken part in the trials and found it helpful.
When a guy stops trying to sleep with you, he stops trying to impress you, and that's when you see who he truly is. I refuse to buy into the idea that because he's a man, my sole aim should be to get him to pledge romantic allegiance; he refuses to believe that because I'm a woman, his sole aim should be to beeline for bed.
Prostitution is technically already legal in the UK. The exchange of sexual services for money is completely legal but engaging in practises such as soliciting in a public place and curb crawling are not.
Feeling sexy is a fundamental part of being female. It's no wonder that low sex drive leads to low mood. Without that passion and juiciness, we feel incomplete. But there are many natural, beautiful, exciting ways that you can re-ignite your love life, without taking drugs.
I'd like to see a change in sex education, the sooner the better. Sex education needs to provide a more intimate and truthful depiction of sex for LGBTI+ people. The dangers of sex of course, need to be addressed but we also need to turn our heads to the enjoyment of sex and consent. At the moment, there is a lack of understanding and it is dangerous.
