The Dangers of ‘Neat and Tucked in’

Brighton, like the rest of the UK, is in the grip of a lockdown. To get through January, my housemates and I are keeping busy. We’ve enhanced our professional offerings, dressed up and conducted photoshoots for our new websites and found ourselves absorbed in great TV (because there is only so much time you can…

6 Top Tips for Success on Dating Apps

I’ve been on and off dating apps for most of my twenties; I’ve tried all the popular ones and sought after casual and monogamous relationships with both men and women. I’ve been around the block – see blog! Sometimes I’ve deleted my account because I’ve met someone and wanted to see where it progresses, but…

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.

Tantra: An Education

For the past few months, I’ve wanted to explore another side of my sexuality, particularly tantric sex.

Hope Above All Else

Something strange happened recently: a random number messaged me on WhatsApp. Usually, when I exchange numbers with someone I’ve been speaking with (on- or offline) I save their number in my phone or they send a message not long after so I can save theirs. There were no hangers-on in the dating apps I was…

Impressions and Lessons

Recently, I’ve noticed that the exciting direction my career has taken might have its drawbacks. When dating, conversations around work and career inevitably crop up and when I tell people I’m a writer, they usually want to know of what. And so I tell them.
