Anonymous UK Gambler Speaks Out

Gambling for a living might seem, at least to some, like a dream come true, notably if you enjoy the world of online gambling and making a bit of money on the side. But, once upon a time, the words “professional gambler” didn’t make us imagine the luxurious and attractive side we know today. Instead, gambling carried the stigma of a money-grabbing hobby reserved for those unscrupulous players who didn’t…

What We Learned from 3 Nights in Macau

When my best friend Aleesha suggested (read: implored and begged) that we go to Macau during our stay in Hong Kong, I was a bit apprehensive. What could Macau possibly offer that we couldn’t find in Hong Kong? The answer was gambling and glamour. Upon doing some research, I decided that we could only stay for the weekend, three nights in total, and, while she whined for a bit, insisting…

WHAT TO SAY WHEN HE WON’T WEAR A CONDOM

If a guy who you planned to have sex with refused to wear a condom, what would you say? And don’t scoff: there are plenty of horror stories around of men (and women) insisting they won’t have sex if prophylactics are involved. Faced with a similar predicament in a sex-ed test, one fourteen year-old girl has proven she’s got it all sorted. On a test page titled “Objections to…

EAT A DONUT… OFF HIS PENIS?!

And there it was at the top of my Facebook newsfeed, in all its sugary, sprinkled-pink sweetness: a donut. The average person would simply have continued scrolling through the never-ending barrage of more relevant confessions, click-baity listicles and snaps of healthy salad lunches. But the instructions accompanying this particular donut – issued by US Cosmopolitan, of course – could halt even the most skeptical of link-clickers in their tracks. Why

A FEMINIST APPROACH TO CLIMATE CHANGE

All around the world women are doing wonderful work in the name of ecofeminism to help heal the environment and fight the patriarchy. But what is ecofeminism, and what impact is it actually having on climate change? Just when you were thinking the patriarchy couldn’t possibly be anymore of a dick, guess what else it might be responsible for? Climate change. Yep, even the entire natural environment can’t escape the…

THE HIDDEN SHAME OF LADY PLEASURE

Wanking, fapping, pounding the flounder, spanking the monkey, flogging your dog, hand to gland combat. The list of terms to describe male masturbation is colourful, slightly grotesque and seemingly endless. Yet the idea that your average male might end the day playing a little five on one is not likely to surprise your average woman. However, when it comes to self-pleasure, there is a hole in our discourse. Why don’t…

LET’S START A FASHION REVOLUTION

No, really. Who made your clothes? It might seem like a simple question, but have you ever really thought about it? It can feel like clothes begin their lives on hangers in shiny chain stores, and from there they make a quick trip to our wardrobes (or in the case of online shopping, they magically appear on our doorsteps). It’s a fact of our lives, and part of how we…

FREE BLEEDING IS NOT A THING

You might have seen or heard of #freebleeding by now. You know, Free Bleeding, where women refrain from using sanitary products when they’ve got their period because (a) bleeding is a beautiful, natural part of life that should be celebrated, not hidden, and (b) tampons are an “oppressive force of the patriarchy”. Tampons are oppressive force of the patriarchy? Does that sound completely fucked up to you? That’s because it…

IT’S HARD OUT HERE FOR A BITCH

We needed Lily Allen’s edgy lyrics and sweet voice when she first stole our hearts with her 2006 album, Alright Still. Her songs poked at problems within society and tore apart the particulars of pop culture; she had a knack for voicing the insecurities we felt as young women. Allen’s new single, It’s Hard Out Here (a play on Three 6 Mafia‘s song) takes aim at a bunch of new…
