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.
In this vlog for The Huffington Post UK Ollie talks about finding it hard to meet people, why online dating wasn't working for him and his new venture, a dating app called Chappy.
We all need to stand together to protect women's health and make our voices heard if we are to move toward a more equal society, both for ourselves and for the women who do not have access to reliable contraception and safe reproductive health choices.
Now, as a nutritional therapist, I always ask people about their sex drive, because it's a big indicator of underlying health. Whilst my clients don't really see it as an issue, actually it gives me a clue into how their hormones are functioning and where we need to support the body.
The sex lives of older people is often sensationalised in the media, almost demonising older women for having a happy and fulfilling sex life. There is a derogatory suggestion that, "You're past it, love. It's time for the youngsters to have their fun."
Porn addiction is not classified as an addiction in the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual) but has the same effects as drugs. Like cocaine, it causes an increase of that feel-good chemical, dopamine which leaves users wanting more by engaging in more porn.
As leaked nudes continue to go viral, and the government gears up to listen to your phone calls and read your emails, remember: it's impossible to hack a piece of paper.
It's hard to fathom that it's 2017, and Sex Education is still being brushed under the carpet by our government. We're still hearing those classic moral panics about schools 'promoting' homosexuality or underage sex as excuses not to make it mandatory in every school.
You'll never attract love if you don't know what it is. Love is never about just one person. It's a way of life, an attitude and spiritual awareness. I don't believe love can exist in absence of these things.
Upon entering the month of February, I have put a lot of thought into how I can make sustainability sexier. Not only do we have Valentine's Day around the corner, I personally have taken my own relationship from partners to roommates. Having my boyfriend move in with me this month, has me thinking about spreading my sustainable lifestyle into other aspects.
The media, and its constant preoccupation with passing judgement on the aesthetics of female bodies, has found its way into the subconscious impulses of men and boys everywhere.
Highlighting the key differences between porn sex and real sex will help younger people create more realistic expectations and have a better understanding of sexual intimacy, making them well-prepared for when they become sexually active.
I think it's a shame that it is impolite to bring up glory holes in most conversations, but I understand that isn't everyone's cup of tea. But I do think it would be darn super if we were able to talk about some sex openly.
I once imagined that having a baby would be a pretty romantic affair. I figured that we'd conceive this baby on holiday or following a candlelit meal. I fantasised about how I would tell my husband, maybe by wrapping the pregnancy test as a gift, or spelling out the news in Alphabetti Spaghetti on his plate.
Next to no changes, acceptances or even considerations have been made in that report. Keep to the status quo, don't change, ignore any concerns and bravery from those who said 'Yes, I'm gay and I love God. So what.'
I suppose you could say that sex on screen is like an edited version of sex in real life, and of course they are there for entertainment purposes and serve as plot devices, but there is a distinct lack in truly realistic sex scenes out there.
