Valentine’s Day

Is Valentine’s Day still worth celebrating?

Valentine's Day comes annually with signals of inflatable love heart balloons, saccharine cuddy toy displays, and chocolates that are overpriced and likely not very good for you. The History of Valentine’s Day St. Valentine of Terni was martyred in 269 C.E. and although the 69 seems oddly appropriate the real history of Valentine’s is anything but romantic. This Roman priest was violently beaten, stoned and then had his head freed from his ...

Sex Education

Why you should totally watch SEX EDUCATION

We have a new favourite show on Netflix! It’s called “Sex Education” and it is so good you won’t want it to end. While the title might be a bit misleading, it is not in fact, a formal education video series. Instead, it is about a teenage boy with a sex therapist mother that starts running his own underground sex therapy clinic… even though he’s never had sex. In fact, he’s ...

Kissing someone with ginger hair is something we can definitely get behind, especially given the innate allure of many red-headed individuals.

A-sexuality: the 101

The scene starts. The eyes of two individuals lock intensely. They move closer together and, stroking each other’s skin as a light primer, begin to engage in an intimate dance of passion and pure sexual tension. Yet as you look on at the intertwined flesh on display you see simply that; two bodies engaging in sexual activity.

When you’re without a partner

A solitary individual sits down at a coffee shop, occupying one of the two seats positioned around a circular art nouveau table. Watching the world go by, they pick up their latte, nurse it between their hands, and take a contented, fulfilled sip. They are not waiting for someone to meet them. They are not just ‘grabbing a pick me up’. They are enjoying a coffee independently and enjoying every moment of it. Single ...

Blood play: what is it and the 101

Previous articles from us have discussed a lust for feral fiends and the sexy supernatural, but the appeal of such lovers of lore isn’t always about the purely fantastical.

Monogamy is lovely, isn’t it? There’s something really valuable and highly intimate about a one-on-one bond between two individuals building up their sexual, romantic, and emotional lives together. That being said, it’s not for everyone. Although monogamy certainly has a place and value in society, we often neglect the remember that it’s not the only method via which people can interact with each other in a relationship framework. In fact, when anthropologists ...
