Why I Write About Sex

When I started this blog at the age of 21 (I am now 28), I wanted to write about my experiences of sex, dating and relationships because what I wanted to find out and talk about regarding sex wasn’t available in the magazines I was reading, the porn I was watching or the websites I…

Female Beauty Crap

I’m not one for new year’s resolutions (new year’s resolutions in September?! Bear with me…). After years of reaching the 8th January and returning to December’s levels of drinking, eating and not exercising, over the past few years I’ve decided it’s best to not bother with resolutions in a bid to stave off spiralling into…

Why Are We Faking It?

The pay gap’s sister, the orgasm gap, has recently had me thinking. Sexually confident and liberated women all over the world are faking orgasms. Some may be faking it because they don’t know if they’ve climaxed, others fake it so sex ends sooner and others do it because they want to placate the person they’re…

Leadership

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.

Our heroes and our heroines.

When you tell your son and your daughter a bedtime story, I hope the narrative will have changed.They don’t need to hear of distressed damsels or Prince Charming hair – they need the stories in which the girl saves herself and sometimes she saves Prince Charming, too.For we all need guidance at one point or…

I’m a feminist but…

My favourite podcast is The Guilty Feminist.  It explores a whole host of topics in insightful ways whilst being absolutely hilarious at the same time.  At the beginning of each episode the hosts disclose three un-feminist habits they have discovered about themselves.  Here are some of my own and ones friends have shared: (See a…
