Maybe I hadn't been the incredibly mature and sophisticated young woman who had attracted an older man. Maybe this wasn't a romantic tale of sexual awakening and empowerment at all. I started desperately trying to sort through my memories. Listening to his friend get angry with him and talking about statutory rape, and not knowing what that meant.
What an atrocious night for a date. Why the hell would anyone ever agree to go out on a first date on a Friday night? It's the most exciting night of the week for people with grown-up jobs. For those that remember how to pull in the real world, it's the best night of the week for that.
Right. It's October. Most people are giving up drinking this month but I'm giving up not dating for 30 consecutive days. How? With my trustee little instant date genrating device - Tinder. Ooh, but how are you going to raise money for charity by dating?
It was years ago that Dr. Komisaruk and Nurse PhD, Beverly Whipple, found the neurologic pathways by which women are able to orgasm. These discoveries gave women the "right" to talk about the different ways they could climax, and validate their experiences scientifically. How can it be that a "true" scientific study, such as the one cited by the London Daily Mail, could be so wrong?
Sarah* is a 22-year-old recent graduate from the Midlands. She is part of the 1% of British public that identify themselves as asexual...
Soho was built on sex, art and culture - and we should cherish its idiosyncratic creativity, not strive to stifle it. And don't we have enough alternative areas in London for those looking for a sterilised and family friendly night out? Dylan Thomas once called Swansea an "ugly, lovely town" and in many ways this is how I grew up seeing London. Its areas like Soho providing a beautiful dose of grit and grime in its cracked walls and faces.
Because they challenge the assumption that sex is a biological necessity, asexuals frequently encounter people who try to persuade them that they just haven't met the right person, or are secretly gay, or that they would like sex if they just tried it.
Every relationship needs spicing up now and again and mine is no different. So when my partner asked if I would do a sexy strip tease for him and let him watch as I played with my vibrator I was very excited.
Recently, you have most probably heard and read a fair amount about the Pick Up Artist Community. This is of course thanks to the media exposure that has been shone on Pick Up Artist Julien Blanc and his shocking pick up tactics. You have also have probably heard many male dating coaches defend him...
If parents can't, or won't, respond to their children's perfectly natural curiosity about the human body and where babies come from, the responsibility falls on schools to provide answers to those questions.
Just when you think you know pretty much everything there is to know about sex and your bedroom looks like you played supermarket sweep through Ann Summers, your girl throws that awkward curveball and whispers 'talk dirty to me,' in your ear. If this catches you off guard you can find yourself naked, mumbling 'I'm going to umm put my umm you know....
I remember feeling real contempt towards my partner when he regaled my labour story to our friends, as if it had been he who pushed an 8lb baby out of his mangina. 'It was like watching your favourite pub burning down. You know it will be rebuilt but it will never been the same again.' Hahahaha. Yes, hilarious. We were supposed to be in the most euphoric stage of our lives but I just wanted to kill him.
The very receptors that are sending signals to our brain subconsciously tell us whether we are wearing shoes or whether that hand is really pleasant to touch, or 'That skin is so soft, it brought back fond memories' or even as simple as 'He feels safe'.
The journalist India Knight has been busy plugging her new book In Her Prime: Older, Wiser, Happier... All harmless enough, until she chose to reveal her rather naive views on infidelity on Woman's Hour. "Affairs? So what?" she glibly pronounced. "So a lot", shouted every listener who has ever known the pain of betrayal.
A large proportion of the homophobia that exists in society continues to stem from religious belief. Within this, the active condemnation of homosexuality is often justified as an expression of faith; a religious right where an individual is free to preach - what they perceive to be - the word of God.
Maybe fertility medicine will transform to such a rapid degree in the next 30 years that we will be living in a world previously only imagined by sci-fi writers, where pregnancy is hyper-managed, as Djerassi describes. I think it's far more likely that we will continue to want to have our babies the old fashioned way
