Sexual Pleasure For Sale In Supermarkets

Yesterday in the Sun Herald, an article I had been waiting for appeared, but it shocked me with its new and quite controversial angle. I was expecting to find a review about the new Durex pleasure vibes being stocked in supermarkets and instead was greeted with an article title, “ Sex toys canned: woolies bites the bullet and dumps vibrators” What?   I was quoted in this article and do support Durex’s move to put these products into supermarkets, however I do agree that it is controversial and potentially risky.  What I don’t agree with is Woolworths being threaten with a boycott from a Christian group who are presenting information and reasoning that has flaws.     Roslyn Phillips, research officer with Christian advocacy group, Family Voice Australia (the same group that is against gay marriage, abortion and believes sex is only for a husband and wife) stated, “society is…

Who’s To Blame For Bad Body Image?

I am an advocate for positive body image. I am also finally to that point in life where I am trying harder to accept and love myself more and focus more on heath rather than vein changes. It’s not easy and I have my good days and my bad day but I am trying. In my pursuit of body acceptance, I have become more aware of my surroundings and the messages I am fed. Unfortunately, the industry I work in and love might be one of the things to blame.   In media, we are presented with an image of how a very small percentage of the world looks. There is probably 1% of the population that actually has that perfect look for TV, catwalk or the pages of magazine and the rest seem to spend their entire lives trying to achieve something that might not be naturally possible. If…

Social Matchmaking

I have reported on it before and I hear it on a regular basis, Sydney is in a dating crisis (and maybe it’s not just Sydney too).  Women are complaining about the lack of good men and men are complaining that women are putting them through too many hoops. It’s becoming more and more complex to meet people and it seems that old fashioned dating has disappeared and modern misconceptions are on the rise. Women don’t know what men want and men don’t know what women want. (Here’s a hint, tell each other!).  As a relationship expert, people will always ask me what is the answer? I sometimes scratch my head and wonder is if internet dating, is it pick up courses and books or iphone apps? I don’t think there is ever going to be just one thing we can do in the fight to find true love (or…

101 Vagina Exhibition

On Tuesday night, I attended and spoke at the opening of an exhibition called 101Vagina based on a graphic book that aims to break taboos around vaginas and the female body in general. It gives expression to women to speak from and about their vaginas and to generate dialogue, acceptance, understanding and love. (I wonder how many times I will say vagina during this post).     I walked in to the exhibition to be greeted by images of vaginas hanging on the walls, a large puppet vulva that you could put your face inside and have your photo taken and a spiritual nun who happens to also be a sex worker in a hoop dress where you could duck underneath and confess your sins to her vagina! At first I thought she might have been joking or it might have been something creative, but on close inspection I found…
