Battlefield

The battlefield behind you
tells not of bloodied corpses
but of poppies;
each poppy a lesson learnt
from a romance
or a dalliance.

To navigate this war zone

Tantra: An Education

For the past few months, I’ve wanted to explore another side of my sexuality, particularly tantric sex. An educationalist at heart, when I read a glowing review of Tantra, the latest exhibition at The British Museum, I felt it would be the perfect introduction to this ancient practice. So on a rainy Wednesday in October,…

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.

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…

Sex Ed: Are We Doing Enough?

(Originally posted on LinkedIn for the EdTech Lobby, but still written by me.) Children and young people across the world are returning to their classrooms.  Over the past five months, many will have learnt how to make pasta from scratch, re-read all the Harry Potter books or completed their favourite video game twice over.  Other…

NSFW: Sub Space House

When ‘Ropes’ and ‘Wing Girl’ created Sub Space House in December 2019, they didn’t expect a lockdown to put a stop to their frivolous fun. Despite this, the pair are keen to resume events once it’s safe to do so and they have big, big plans for taking Sub Space global. To find out more…
