In the US, a 2013 Gallup survey of 1,535 American adults found that 91% considered extramarital infidelity to be morally wrong. This was higher than the figure for people who objected to human cloning, suicide, and polygamy.
David Bowie will be remembered for many things by many people. But for me, I'll always remember him as the person who taught me that there didn't have to be one face I chose.
Women apparently hit their sexual peak at 35, and I would agree. I think your thirties are the best decade of your life (although I may change this opinion as I get older). I got married as I turned 30, just had my first baby. I had all three children in this decade, my confidence escalated ten fold, I loved my job but had the confidence to have a career break. And yes, my libido increased.
Rape means rape. Rape means putting a penis or other object inside a person against their will. This is not sex, it is rape, and it is the furthest thing from the meaning of sex. Calling rape "sex" is like saying that the boa constrictor gave the rat an unwanted hug. Or that a punch is a forced facial caress. Or that burglary is "forced giving". It makes no sense and it is damaging.
During my career as a psychologist in clinical practice, if there's one word I have heard more than any other from the thousands of patients I have consulted with it's 'sex',. However, in 2015 the frequency and depth of sex in my patients' lives appeared to increase in its importance, seemingly due to the ever increasingly sexualised and consumerist society we live in.

With Christmas and New Year parties coming up over the festive season, I felt it is important to highlight to people of all genders the dangers of having unprotected sex. Numbers attending sexual health clinics are known to increase after the holiday period.
Clearly, age alone is no barrier to sexual activity, but there is a 'use it or lose it' aspect to sex in later life, and for older people, masturbation is probably the easiest and most effective way of sustaining both sexual desire and sexual function.
It's not that I was expecting much better from one of the emptiest programmes on television, but this week's Made in Chelsea's discrimination against a bisexual man was still disappointing.
In spite of the surplus of women on University campuses, a casual sex culture is thriving. Well, hasn't that always been the case, you might say, and why shouldn't students enjoy a bit of fun?
Human beings enjoy having sex. In fact, in a study where people rated how happy they felt after undertaking a range of daily activities, sex was rated as the number one happiness inducing activity.
Society, misogyny, the media; all of these things persuade us to live our lives according to the accepted route that the generations before us conformed to. Yet if feminism teaches us that everyone should have the right to become exactly who they want to be, why do so many men blindly dismiss it?
It can be challenging to share vulnerability as you actually feel it. It might feel strange to tell your partner that you're feeling uncomfortable at that moment, or that you're feeling like stopping or pausing for a while. But it really is worth trying out.
What is psychological ED? Whilst erectile dysfunction can be caused by medical reasons, if you are able to get an erection in the morning, whilst sleeping or when masturbating, but have difficulty obtaining or sustaining an erection during sex, then the chances are there is a psychological cause.
Personally, after sex I like to hold an inquiry as to what went right, what went wrong and who is accountable. Then, I just like to be held. Ideally you'll put me in your hands and hold me above your head for ten to fifteen minutes whilst I nap.
