I’ve always enjoyed the world of adult pleasure products or what are still referred to sex toys. Before I was a sexologist, I was doing some freelance writing work and my first regular gig was with FHM magazine. One day I was asked to review a brand of sex toys. I met with the rep and soon had an apartment with every power point was occupied, charging products that were not household appliances. I never knew so many different variations existed. And that was just the start. Many people are fearful of sex toys. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because this world is often seen as being seedy. But I’ve always been baffled as to why it should be this way. Maybe it’s because some think that reaching out for these products means you are desperate to spice things up.

But, of course I always have more to say… (I could talk a fish under water). Throughout the day I spent on set, we ran two activities to help Matt explore the unspoken bond, deep intimacy and connection he had with each of the girls. What I loved about this concept is that there is a decent part of this show based on superficial aspects. Of course, you have to be attracted to someone as well as have a bond. There is a lot of talk about futures matching up and ticking things off a list. At this point, the idea of explore…
Are you single and struggling in the dating world? Would you like to take part in a brand-new audio series with me? I am looking for single people of any sexual orientation and identity, to take part in a new series exploring the world of dating and the issues people face, with an emphasis on building non-visual connections. We live in new era where dating is more fast paced and superficial and it feels as though there is a new app and dating trend each day.

Are you on the dating scene and need guidance with finding the right match, to explore intimacy, or how to prepare for that all important first date? I would love to hear your dating stories, good or bad and share how dating has…
