A new sex academy aims to get women talking more about their personal lives.
Sex, death and finances are the most taboo topics in Britain according to a recent survey – with over half of adults saying they find sex the most awkward topic to discuss with friends and family. As Shirley Conran said recently in an interview with the Huffington Post, the M word is still a dirty one.
“Mum, is tea ready? Where are my pants? What are you doing?”
This is usually the point at which I give up trying to think up a new word for ‘cock’ (there should so be a thesaurus purely for people who write about sex) and slam the lid of my computer down with a frustrated groan. And not the sort of frustrated groan that can be enjoyable, oh no.
Mr Lost is a book about a wife’s journey into her marriage: frustrations, sexual fantasies, doubts and adultery. It explores why women have affairs, what they want, and why they leave ‘good’ marriages. Do sexual fantasies harm or help?
The narrator, who isn’t named, starts writing a blog under a pseudo-name (Lucrezia Borgia), in which imaginary character Emma Bovary is free to live the alternative, fuller and exciting life the real person wishes for, separated from her own desires by two levels of fiction (Lucrezia and Emma).
We met the author, Angie Voluti, to talk about her motivations for writing Mr Lost and how she juggles her work as a writer with heading up her own PR company, AV PR.
You may remember that the luscious owner of Rude Magazine, Nicci, recently did a review of MEME’s lingerie.
This fantastic company sent myself and Nicci a beautiful Playful Promises ‘LOVE’ set each to review: a blood-red vintage stitch bra, panties and a 4-strap suspender belt. Swoon!

Therapeutic horse work can increase self-awareness, confidence, and improve communication and leadership skills at work. It can also teach us how we relate to others and help with conflict and unresolved issues in our personal lives. We spoke to Equine Affinity about a new equine therapy workshop for improving relationships.
What is adultery? Is its avoidance essential to the continuation of mankind? Would choosing to enjoy a wider range of partners hack at the very foundation of society?
This is a well researched subject, of course. The civic and religious implications have been carefully weighed over millennia.

I am my own worst nightmare. Just a few glasses of wine and I broke the rules again. Lord! What am I like? What seemed a pithy text take on disappointment in the evening definitely reads like the rantings of a lunatic in the am. I can’t even text an apology for that would surely ...
International Women’s Day has been running since the early 1900s – a time of great unrest and critical debate amongst women who were questioning their role in society. In 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York demanding shorter hours, better pay and voting rights.
Should I be happy that a 27-year-old is repeatedly messaging me with photos of his privates and urgent pleas to meet him within the hour? He’s even added me as a favourite! What a shame I’m not a man, I’m told that a man would love that. For me it just seems rather sad and bizarre, even if he is rather cute….hmm could I? No, well not yet anyway!
For boys and girls… Mr Lost is a blook (blog that reads like a book) about a wife’s journey into her marriage: frustrations, sexual fantasies, doubts and adultery. Why do women have affairs?
