Say Yes to 21st Century Sex & Relationships Ed

Sex education is a very tricky subject. What exactly do you tell children about sex with out it being, well... weird? How young should they start learning about sex and relationships, and where do you draw the line on what to tell them? We may not have been getting it right in the past, but there is still hope for the future.

Should Consent Be Assumed in Fantasies?

I have a bit of a problem. It sometimes affects my enjoyment of light-hearted pleasurable things and can cause people to use their 'confused face' on me when I tell them. It started a few years ago, but now I can't switch it off. My problem is... I just can't enjoy fantasies unless consent is very clearly dealt with.

Santa's Little Helper: Christmas Gifts to Avoid

It’s that time of year again. When we’re all convinced to buy over-priced perfume, copious amounts of toblerone and jumpers with novelty animals on the front. Yes, it’s Christmas.Well, almost...which means it’s time to indulge in some retail therapy and vegging out in front of Love Actually for the fifth year in a row.

To Travel or Not to Travel Home for the Holidays?

As the holidays approach, we urban yuppies must make the controversial decision:  to travel or not to travel.My family always expects me to be home for the holidays – especially Christmas, which I have never missed. I find this expectation quite unrealistic. After all, I live in America, land of the two-weeks-vacation-per-annum. Most people don’t have enough vacation days to burn a week of them over Christmas in the suburbs where they grew up, much less want to use half of their vacati...

How and Why I Eat Gluten-Free

I gave up gluten because it makes me feel like shit.I can tell I’m allergic to wheat the same way I can tell that I’m allergic to perfume:  my body screams in rejection every time we come into significant contact. After a meal rich in wheat, the reaction begins with bloat – immediate and uncomfortable. Next, an upset stomach - mild but persistent. Then come the sharp pains, like someone stabbing me in the intestine. If these warnings, which have grown sharper with age, are not heeded, ...

Lemsip & the Great Man Flu Divide

It’s that time of year again. No, not Autumn. Not Halloween. Not even Christmas shopping.It’s Man Flu season. I know. I'm sorry.Listen carefully on the morning train, you’ll hear a distinctly male chorus of coughs. They won’t be serious coughs, there will be no rattling of phlegm, but they will be dramatic. So dramatic, in fact, you will wonder how they even mustered up the strength to get themselves up in that morning.
