When your sex life is lacking, it's like a poison. You might not think it's a big deal at first, but problems in the bedroom tend to breed resentment and insecurity that can filter into every aspect of the relationship. A bad sex life usually doesn't mean you should throw in the towel quite yet though!
It seems incongruous and a little ironic that in the same month that gay marriage became legal in the UK, a new report sheds light on an emerging phenomenon involving some gay men who seemingly have their finger on the self-destruct button.
There are moments in a woman's life, when at any age she can feel her sexual needs are unfulfilled for various reasons. Low libido could be due to anaemia, caused by iron loss during periods or a loss of libido often happens after the trauma of childbirth, with many women too exhausted to think about sex!
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.
Monogamous relationships. Casual relationships. Homosexual relationships. The ship has sailed, my friends, and it's about time the government caught up with our level of social advancement, and changed the course of sex education.
Why do we so desire to own this great body? Is it just to be more attractive? No, if we get deep down inside ourselves and be completely honest, we find the real reason behind doing this is for a sense of self-mastery, efficacy. That's the real reason behind all goal achieving.
This one is for Adrian Albert Mole and all other males, young and old, who worry incessantly about the size of their members...
Conscious coupling is about being conscious about whether you want a relationship, what are the important values for your ideal partner to have and what kind of relationship are you looking for? Are you just interested in something casual? Do you want a long-term partnership?
The book contains much else besides the titillating fact that as a 60-year-old I had intimate encounters with a few of London's 'hot young dudes', but that was the focus of all the media attention. Of course I know how newspapers work and I understand tabloid-ese. I just didn't think that this revelation was something to get so lathered up about in 21st Century Britain.
More needs to be done to help students who are unable to cope financially to prevent them resorting to such drastic measures. It is possible women are being forced into, what is essentially, the sex industry by their lack of money and ability to fund their education.
Homophobia in Poland is another major reason of Polish immigration to the UK. Who would have thought? In fact, gay Poles decide to book a one-way flight ticket to London to escape discrimination.
I've been listening to current debates about pornography - most recently about young children watching it - and it got me thinking. For feminists, pornography is one of those particularly contentious issues, along with prostitution and the other sexual industries. Really, anything with a sexual element is quite a contested terrain.
If taken correctly, the contraceptive pill is 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. It also protects against ovarian and endometrial cancer, anemia and acne.
Could that perfectly timed phone call REALLY have been that 'important'? There's many more controversial/offensive ways to describe him emptying his sack quicker than Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, but they all mean the same thing. However, putting a nice spin on things doesn't hide the adult truth.
Occasional failure is more likely at the beginning of a relationship, particularly if a man is anxious. The issue often resolves as confidence grows, but some men get stuck in a loop where their anxiety about staying hard becomes something of a self-fulfilling prophecy.
I think I was about 16 when my dad came out as gay. Following a series of hospitalisations relating to his mental health, the time had come for him to start talking about his sexuality. In the years that have since passed, I have also come out and subsequently been asked various reductive and predictable questions...
