Like A Virgin

Virginity! Something we are often too scared to talk about to teens, but really need to be telling them more. Today on Sunrise we spoke about a new controversial reality show in the UK, “ Like a Virgin”, where the host follows young teens on their journey to lose the big V and everything is revealed to the cameras. Of course, there are calls to ban this show (as with most things that cover teen sex) but it is the allegations of it not being educational that really upset me. In an age when there is a real lack of sex education, anything that encourages us to talk about the subject, I welcome!   At the end of the day if you have a problem with the content of a TV show or feel that your children should not watch it, you always have the choice to turn it off….

Why Slut Shaming Is Wrong ( by a 13 year old girl)

This you tube video was passed around yesterday and considering I just posted an article about women feeling bad at the prospect of sleeping with many men, I felt it was appropriate to share it with you.   I am also amazed and impressed that these words are uttered by a 13 year old girl! If only more 13 year olds could think like her, actually if more people in general could think like her, the world would be a better place.   She might not have a doctorate in Human Sexuality, the right to vote, drive, drink, or has even finished school but this 13 year old girl has a valid point and a maturity I would expect to find or would hope to find in an adult.  You don’t have to be a sexologist to educate people, just an open mind and the courage to voice your opinion!  …

How Many is Too Many?

My friend messaged me the other day in a desperate state! She had watched that movie where a woman sleeps with 19 guys and decides 20 is the one she should marry or something like that. I can’t remember the name or the details but I do remember how upset my friend was after watching it. So my friend decides to make a list of all the men she’s slept with and then becomes upset over it. I’m furious! Not that she has slept with many men but that she’s upset about it. (And no “ my friend” is not a code for myself, I’m proud of everyone I slept with, well nearly everyone, lol)   Being a sexologist, at times we are required to take a sex history. It is very useful in putting the pieces of someone sex life together. But on another level I am against people…
