In the video below, Kate Spring addresses something that is a real letdown for women in their relationships. And that is a lack of sexual tension. Sometimes, healthy tension can be one of those things missing in relationships and is like an on and off switch, but most of the time, it requires work. Building sexual tension is like the growing hunger that makes a three-course meal so enjoyable, and the build-up to the main meal is the appetizer.

An increase in the number of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) cases among people over the age of 50 has led researchers to believe that this could be because of the surging sexual proclivity among the “silver splitters”.

In a recent study that was conducted by researchers from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and that was published in the medical journal Lancet HIV on Tuesday, September 26, the diagnosis rate among older British had increased by an average annual rate of 3.6 percent from 2004 to 2015, as compared with the yearly decline of four percent among younger people during the same time period.

It wasn’t until I was walking to the clinic, wasting an hour of my day to get a test I shouldn’t have needed to get, that I went from annoyed to pissed. It wasn’t until I saw my blood filling a syringe, and willed it to not be infected, that I went from concerned to chest-clenched freaked out, realizing what I’d risked.

Invisible forces that determine who we want and who wants us.

The French say, “je ne sais quoi” (literally, “I don’t know what”) when describing a certain mysterious something that makes a particular person sexually attractive.

You’d think that with something as vital to the survival of the species as sexual selection, we’d all be very conscious of the cues we (and prospective partners) use for mate selection.

Both cancer treatment and its aftereffects have huge ramifications on the sex lives of women – and those ramifications aren’t discussed often enough.


If you’re unfamiliar with the BDSM scene, you might think it’s all whips, handcuffs, and pleasurable pain, but there’s one important element that BDSM practitioners have built into their sex lives to make sure that everyone involved feels safe and cared for after play time is over: a practice known as aftercare. And whether you’re into BDSM or have more vanilla tastes, aftercare is something everyone should be doing.

Philosophers claim to explore the most fundamental features of existence but have been disappointingly silent on one all-important subject: Sex.

Sure, Michel Foucault addressed the sociological discourses around sex and Simone de Beauvoir definitively demonstrated the value of sexual equality, but what about sex itself—or, as philosophy professor Jeanne Proust researches, sexual desire?

Many men write in to ask me about how to get their partners to have sex with them more. It can be hard to know exactly why your partner might be less interested in sex than she once was. Sometimes these things just happen in relationships and over time the heat begins to fizzle out.

However, there are some things that you might be doing that are flat out turning her off from sex. In the beginning, she may have overlooked these things, but now they just get under her skin and make her want to avoid the bedroom.


The moment I knew internet pornography had cast its dark shadow over the lives of millions of ordinary British teenagers will live with me forever.

I was sitting in the smart drama hall of a specialist sports college in the North of England with a fantastic reputation.

Before me were a group of 20 boys and girls, aged 13-14. Largely white, working-class children, they were well turned-out, polite, giggly and shy.
