I was having lunch alone in a little sushi bar downtown and overheard a conversation at the next table: Woman 1: don't go see the Russell Crowe move Noah. It is completely unrealistic Woman 2: a movie about a guy who builds a giant ark to save every species of animal in the world from … Continue reading Best overheard quote
Why do male porn actors never look like THIS? (Picture: Calvin Klein)
By all accounts we are all a bunch of wankers.
Roughly 94 per cent of London men and 66 per cent of women watch porn (presumably the missing 33 per cent of ladies are too busy reading 50 Shades knock-offs).
Porn has become part of everyone’s sex ‘education’ – although we shouldn’t patronisingly assume viewers can’t tell the difference between acting and real life (if you think the average skin flick features genuine female orgasms you are definitely still a virgin or simply rather dreadful in bed).
Still, porn is influencing real sex lives – from daft expectations about pubic hair to unrealistic sex acts themselves.
So why does the internet need more porn? Essentially because the majority is boring, sexist crap that is not only misinforming people, young and old, about sex but arguably putting lives in…

The above article is a fantastic read! As a future parent I hope I can be so cool and collected about sex with my kids. How my parents treated my fascination with sex as a kid still affects me, sometimes I still feel like I’m doing something wrong when I have sex and I’m 22! I’ve been with my boyfriend for years and I consider him to be the one that took my virginity so by most standards I’m doing this ‘right’ but I still feel guilty about it.

I mean they probably thought their little girl was…

I read an interesting stat recently that couples with children are twice as likely to commit adultery as couples without children (http://bit.ly/1rV38L0). I found this a little surprising, naively or romantically thinking that the responsibility to the family and the bond created by kids might suppress urges to wander. But then I looked into the … Continue reading Cheating and Kids
Have you ever had that conversation... would you rather be invisible or able to fly? I have had this discussion a few times, with friends at a dinner party or over beers. Typically, people feel that if you choose flight, this means you are free, open adventurous spirit. Wanting to be invisible, on the other … Continue reading If You Were Invisible…
I remember when I was about 25, living with a roommate in Toronto. We were walking down the street and we saw 3 teenage girls in school uniforms. He made a sexual comment and I told him he was a disgusting dirty old man. He said "just wait... it will happen to you". Fast forward … Continue reading A Bad Moment for a Dad
Kinsey had said that all of us have some combination of voyeurism and exhibitionism within us. A (completely true) story I heard recently tested the limits. Friends of ours - a couple - were at a party at a cottage. Everyone was drinking a fair bit and the conversation turned to sex - as it … Continue reading Would You Let Someone Watch?
