Body 'Positivity'

I am super positive about body positivity. On purpose. And very publicly. Because that's what it's called, and because that way, people can see how wonderful i

National Orgasm Day: Closing the Orgasm Gap

You might remember Nicki Minaj's iconic interview with Cosmo back in 2015, where she revealed she was in the habit of demanding orgasms from any man she slept with, and demanding her friends did the same? And she can't be wrong.

The Quarter Life Crisis

Partially, I believe this to be down to social media. I know I've said it before, but no one expresses their failures online. It's bursting full of achievements and 'look what I did last night with all my money and my very expensive looking shoes' and positive updates from your friends and families lives.

I Said 'I Love You' First

I get it - a proclamation of love is a pretty big deal. To even BE in love is nothing short of spectacular. I, personally, believe that 'Love' as a whole, earns itself a substandard reputation and is portrayed as an emotion for the weak.

There's No Such Thing as 'The Friend Zone'

There's no such thing as the friend zone. Yeah, I said it, and it's probably about time we stopped using it as an excuse for not getting what we want. Really, the 'friend zone' is a socially constructed coping mechanism used primarily by men to make their female counterparts feel guilty about rejecting them.

Womain - Why Staying in the EU Would Have Been Better for Women

There has been somewhat of a social media uproar since last Friday. Just in case you've been residing under a rock somewhere quiet, Britain have voted to leave the European Union. There have been countless blasts sent into the social-sphere and shared by the thousands detailing the future of our country as a result of our new independence.

Sex and the Self Conscious Woman; Volume Two

Obviously, 2015 me thought this meant losing some timber. 2018 me knows better. I'm bigger than I was then, but more confident than ever and I am more than happy to flaunt my jiggly bits like they ain't know thang. Weight loss does not sit in direct correlation with happiness.

Success and the Single Woman

If I had a penny for every time I’ve been described as ‘intimidating’, I’d finally be able to buy myself a navy snakeskin Birkin.

Empowerment Needs To Be Your 2017 Resolution

I'm not making a resolution this year. For the last 22 I have made promises every January that go flying out the window within a matter of weeks. Instead, I have used the past six days to take pride and embrace gratitude for the person I have become.

Brock Turner is Reinforcing Rape Culture

Consent is everything. It really is that simple. It's pretty ridiculous that here and now, a considerable way through 2016, we are still telling people not to have sex with anyone else against their will. It truly is baffling to read, see and hear what modern society's concept of rape really is.

Why Marcia Clark Is the Real Hero of the OJ Simpson Trial

I know I'm not the only person watching The People Vs OJ Simpson on BBC2. But just in case you've been out of the loop - it's a star-studded ten part television series documenting the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and the trial of her ex-husband OJ.

'Naked Attraction' or Britain's Newest Demeaning Game Show?

"Dad, where did you meet mum?" "She was stood in a giant tupperware with five other birds and had the best fanny, Son." 'Naked Attraction' is an all new, totally uncensored television show on Channel Four. I know what you're thinking - yet another dating show broadcast on British television?

Bush is The New Black.

I'm sure you remember my post not so long ago marking out my ode to bodily hair. If it doesn't ring a bell, see post here - http://the-man-ban.tumblr.com/post/134333875912/personal-preening-1st-december-2015. As clearly stated, I don't mind bodily hair and I certainly have no problem with pubes.

The Ex Files

It is more than rare to bag yourself a beau with no baggage. Seriously, everyone has an ex. If not an official ex-boyfriend or girlfriend, then someone they used to hook up with, send dirty snapchats to or chase naked around their parent’s garden aged six.
