What Do We Mean By ‘Sex’ Anyway?

(Getty Images:Timothy Shonnard) “Good sex is like good bridge. If you don't have a good partner, you'd better have a good hand.” ~ Mae West Right, back to our #haveyouhadanorgasm series.

Have You Had An Orgasm?

“A woman's orgasm is such a fragile thing, dependant as much upon her mind as on her clitoris.” ― Megan Hart Ladies, have you ever had an orgasm?

"So what's the best way, in day-to-day life, to establish what someone likes? Well, we fucking ask them." ~ Cordelia Fine So, following a discussion I recently had on Facebook, prompted by this Ravishly article around practicing consent as a heterosexual woman, I agreed to write my thoughts on the subject of women and consent.… Continue reading Consent: Also For Women

Why Having Sex Is Nothing Like Playing Tennis

"Dylan (Justin Timberlake): Why can it not be like that? It's a physical act. Like playing tennis. Two people should be able to have sex like they're playing tennis. Jamie (Mila Kunis): Yeah! I mean, no one wants to go away for the weekend after they play tennis. Dylan: It's just a game. You shake hands, you get… Continue reading Why Having Sex Is Nothing Like Playing Tennis

Love, Sex and Organised Religion

“I believe in recognizing every human being as a human being--neither white, black, brown, or red; and when you are dealing with humanity as a family there's no question of integration or intermarriage.

Size Is Just A Number

"Everything you see, I owe to spaghetti." ~ Sophia Loren So I've been reading some of the publicity around Robyn Lawley (above) becoming the first 'plus size' face of Ralph Lauren.

7 Reasons Why Girls Ain’t Easy

"It's full of easy girls." ~ A friend, disdainfully, while discussing a local dive hot-spot. 'Easy girls' has to be one of my least favourite terms in the English language. I find it offensive on so many levels that I hardly know where to begin, but here goes: 1. This is not the 1950s As… Continue reading 7 Reasons Why Girls Ain’t Easy
