It’s very easy to believe that women are “too complicated to understand” – but even despite natural variations, some general patterns of pleasure exist and need to be acknowledged. One of the first sites attempting to demystify female pleasure and get people to reap the benefits is an interesting new platform called...

Warning: this post contains reference and descriptions of suicide 13 Reasons Why – A Netflix original series that has brought bullying, rape and suicide into the limelight and got people talking. It hasn’t all been good talk; mental health professionals have uttered their concerns over the messages that the show may...

I heaved a sigh of relief when it was announced that sex and relationship education was to be made compulsory in schools. But before we start, let’s take a look at what they’re learning. I present to you two pamphlets: ‘4 Boys’ and ‘4 Girls’ – these were originally published in 2004, but are still distributed to schools...

Being LGBTQ+ feels somewhat like trying to navigate around binary black holes. LGBTQ+ identities are all about sex. Or non-heterosexual sexualities just don’t exist. These are the only two stories on offer. There is no space in between. Our elevation of sex in society means that sexuality has become the centre of our...

Sex should always be fun, so it can be off putting and even scary when pain replaces pleasure.

We’ve come a long way in terms of openly gay characters, but there’s still a long way to go in terms of representations of other sexualities...

When an interview opens with a cup of tea, and closes with a friendly hand job demonstration, you know you’re writing an article for Verbal Remedy. I absolutely love writing about genitals on the internet. Very few things make me happier, other than when my fuchsia decides it can be bothered to grow, or when I find a...

Mrs Andrews has been teaching for over 30 years – always in local senior school comprehensives. She began as a Home Economics teacher and later taught Food Technology, Child Development, and Health and Social Care.   How long have you been teaching sex education? Well, I’ve given students information about sex when...

In 2013, Dr Debby Herbenick gave a TED talk in Bloomington, Indiana, with the title ‘Making Sex Normal’.
