Watching porn is no longer a secretive, solo act anymore (unless you want it to be) – but introducing it into your bedroom routine can be awkward at first.

As I sat in the beautiful bed, in the beautiful hotel, in a beautiful country on holiday, my beautiful marriage, to my beautiful husband, was revealed as holding a very ugly secret, a secret revealed by an accidental look at an undeleted porn video loaded on his phone.

  There are very few academics who have the unique pleasure of researching pornography – and we’ve already met one of them.

If Cara Delevingne and St Vincent being an item wasn’t enough, you might even have noticed that gay marriage is now legal across ALL the American states! Amongst the record-breaking Pride Marches erupting around the globe, Facebook allowing users to...

When people say that it was nicer when a woman in negligee could only be procured at the age of 18 by a frightening discussion at the local newsagents, I would remind them that this generation of vintage porn mag men are the ones responsible for misogyny’s beginnings. It is because of them that online pornography...

What does pornography mean to you? …asked Bridget Hamilton, my boss here at Verbal Remedy. The truth? Without pornography, I wouldn’t truly be able to explore my entire sexuality. It would be physically impossible. Let me back up a bit. I am a macrophile. Okay, wow, that was difficult. For me, openly talking about...

Making the Beast with Two Backs, Bumping Uglies, A romp in the sack… whatever you call it, however you have it, sex is a huge part of our lives.
