Are We In A Dating Crisis?

I don’t want to be too negative, but it has become apparent we are in the midst of a dating crisis. Now, I am only referring to Sydney here as it the place I call home and know very well (and know it’s meat market intimately).   Over the past year I have been fortunate enough to work with and befriend some amazing, fantastic, high powered, successful women in this town. Some of these women are married or engaged and have it all, but many of these women are single, strong with no time to date and no time to be mucked around. It’s the alpha female gone wrong! I love the new term ‘alpha female’, the woman that has it all. There is an abundance of women out there who have great jobs, an education, a social status, an income, a brain and a body, two feet to stand…

When Does Sex End?

When does sex end? I know it’s a bizarre question, but I am a bizarre person with a bizarre profession ( so I’m allowed to ask these questions). Let’s get all academic and look at the definition (which by the way, most definitions of sex I don’t actually agree with). According to one medical website they term sex or sexual intercourse or coitus as “any physical contact between 2 individuals involving stimulation of the genital organs of at least one.” This is actually not a bad definition and does at least leave room for oral, anal and manual sex, and stimulation of only one person. (You don’t have to both be getting off for it to be sex!).   But, according to a study in 2010 by the Kinsey Institute, people don’t agree on what the term “had sex means”. In this study 95% of participants agreed that when a…

Is Sex The Cure For Memory Loss?

  Can you remember where you put the car keys? Have you forgotten that you told someone you would meet them for lunch? Did you forget to pick something up from the supermarket? Welcome to old age (or just me on a bad day!). I was recently having a conversation with my father about his forgetfulness and him considering taking up bridge as a hobby. That’s what people do at a certain age isn’t it? Bridge or crosswords or puzzles to keep the brain pathways connected and strong. I even once heard that you should brush your teeth with the other hand.   Well, I have a new activity for your – Sex! (Of course I’m going to say that, what did you think I would say? Gardening?). Scientists say that having sex later in life could be a pleasant alternative to these sometimes mundane brainteasers.   In 2011, 170…

"Honey Not Tonight, I Have A Headache"

Have you ever used the line, “ honey not tonight, I have a headache?” Well, maybe this is not just an excuse to stay away from sex after all. A study from Italy has just revealed that women who suffer frequent headaches or migraines are more likely than others to have sexual problems. I am curious to know if they have sexual problems because they have constant headaches and let’s face it, sometimes when you are in pain it is the last thing on your mind, or if there really is some deeper correlation?   The results, more than 90% of women seeking medical treatment for their headaches had significant impairments of their sexual functioning and 29% reported being distressed about their sex life. Are headaches really getting in the way of a satisfying romp beneath the sheets? During this study, 100 women were interviewed and it was found 91…
