Make your wedding guest list drama-free.
Who To Invite And Who To Leave Out. Organising a wedding is meant to be one of the most exciting (albeit expensive) times of your life. But it can also be stressful when some family and friends don’t see eye-to-eye, and long-standing feuds and individual personality clashes are likely to be exacerbated by hours of drinking and heightened emotions. We asked relationship experts how far wedding etiquette should go when it comes to dictating your guest list – a question that arguably feels somewhat more urgent when you’re paying for everyone’s dinner.
It’s time to talk about sexual incompatibility
Evolutionary psychologists have posited that we might experience sexual clashes with people whose genetic complexes are discordant to our own, because it affects the ability of us and our potential offspring to fight disease.But often, incompatibility comes down to a contrast in sexual tastes and appetites – most notably, a mismatch in libidos. Data from Natsal, the British National Surveys of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (one of the broadest and most detailed scientific studies of its kind worldwide) indicates one in four UK couples are imbalanced in their desire for sex.
Navigating long-distance relationships
Long-distance relationships are a little bit easier to navigate now a days with the blessing of high-speed internet and mobile phones. There is no need to be throwing away money on expensive calls or waiting weeks for a letter. With this in mind-long-distance relationship quality does not have to be significantly different from ones close by.
However, in reality, relationships take work, and with the strain of long-distance, that stress can be amplified. The inability to have date nights, days out or physical touch can be incredibly hard. In this article I have some tips on how you can maintain the spark even from a distance.
The Rise of Labiaplasty.
With the recent release of Laura Dodsworth’s book, ‘Womanhood; the bare reality’. I thought it would be a good time to talk about Labiaplasty; what it is and why it’s on the rise.
Labiaplasty is the most common form of female genital cosmetic surgery and involves surgical reduction of the Labia minora (the inner lips of the vulva). You may also know it by a few different names: “vulva reshaping”, “vulva and vaginal rejuvenation”, “designer vagina” and “the barbie doll”…yes “the barbie doll!”
Labia minora surgery was first documented in 1976, but it was not until the 2000s that the surgery gained popularity. In the UK the demand for labiaplasty has increased more than three-fold from 2000 to 2014.
What is Female Orgasmic Disorder (FOD)?
Tv, movies, porn, magazine articles, tend give the message that orgasms are the pinnacle of sexual excitement, and that unless you climax you’re not having great sex. Well I call bullshit! Orgasms are unique and individual: One person may climax from the touch of their nipples, another might need a lot of time and clitoral play and one person may struggle to orgasm at all. In this piece I want to focus on those who struggle with orgasms. This is called Female Orgasmic Disorder (FOD) and research shows that 43% of women report some degree of difficulty reaching orgasm. This can often lead to feelings of isolation, frustration and distress.
