When Will Sex Be Good Again?

Warning: spoilers and content some readers may find triggering. “In recent years, two requirements have emerged for good sex; consent and self-knowledge,” writes Katherine Angel in her recent book, Tomorrow Sex Will Be Good Again*.  When it comes to self-knowledge (we’ll get to consent shortly), it’s not always easy to know what turns us on…

What Stories Could Your Vulva Tell?

Last month, I came across a body-casting artist who’s work showcases the human body. Now, she’s bringing her work to a wider audience by creating a book containing photos of 200 vulvas she cast from 2019-2021. With her new Vulva Diversity Project, Lydia Reeves hopes to celebrate vulvas, educate readers and help women feel less…

To pube or not to pube? It’s none of your business.

Almost two years ago I wrote about My Love Affair with Pubic Hair. And, amazingly, it’s the top post by which people stumble across this blog from Google.

Recently, I’ve been thinking about leadership in all guises.  And when I think about it, I realise that everyone will have taken the lead at some point in their lives: Games in the playground often have a leader who dictates which friend can be the captain and which character everyone will play. In our jobs,…

My Love Affair with Pubic Hair

I’ve been thinking about pubic hair a lot recently. Whilst I was single, I endeavoured to keep everything in my pants waxed or Immaced – you know, just in case. (Male friends have said they ‘keep on top of trimming’ when they’re single because they also never know when they’re going to get lucky and…

Inspired by my darling friend and future novelist, here are my top 9 to help you through these times: 1) The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho: For when you’re feeling lost This beautiful short book is a perfect…

When The Guilty Feminist came to Brighton

As my readers will know, I LOVE Deborah Frances-White and her podcast, ‘The Guilty Feminist’.  Well, now she’s written a book of the same name and her book tour ended in Brighton.  You can buy Deborah’s book from Waterstones here.  My friend and fellow blogger joined me for an evening of giggles, roaring laughter and…
