When I had the opportunity to adopt my daughter a few months away from my 30se birthday, I knew that saying yes meant saying goodbye to my love life. At least at the dating life I had had it until then.

Goodbye crazy evenings.

Say goodbye to the freedom to meet any potential love interest at the last second.

Goodbye to the potential of something easy and simple.

And definitely goodbye to “u up?” Texts that never turned into anything substantial but were always good for a few hours of fun.

I started my life as single mother by choice, which meant that I wouldn’t have a parenting partner to swap nights and weekends with, and dating would, from that point on, involve a lot of planning and money spent on babysitters.

I did not care. The second my daughter was hugged, I knew I had made the right decision.

It was seven years ago. For the most part, my intuition on what would become of my love life after embracing motherhood was perfect. I have a career that I am passionate about, a wonderful group of friends that I can always count on for my support and a daughter who is the absolute love of my life.

And I can’t remember the last time I had a second date.

The truth is, I just haven’t tried that hard. My life is full and happy, and I have yet to meet someone worth complicating things with.

But that doesn’t mean my lady pieces just shriveled up and died. I am still a sexual being with all the same desires that I had before motherhood. I just don’t have the same time or the same freedom to give in to these desires.

Once a year or so, since my daughter was born, I have found a night or two here and there to be intimate with another person while my little girl spent the night at an aunt’s house or, more recently, gone to sleep in camp. . And that was enough.

Until 2020, the year of the COVID-19 pandemic.

All of a sudden, for the first time in my journey as a single mom, sex and dating isn’t just a little out of reach; they are legitimately prohibited.

I can’t just get on Tinder and pick some enticing potential for an evening of flirtation and fun. I haven’t been to a restaurant for 9 months, nor within 6 feet of another adult. And kissing through masks isn’t really a thing.

There is no room for casual encounters or even PG-13 dates when the risk is to bring home a deadly disease. There is no way I can justify my need to fuck while public health officials beg people to keep their distance.

And so, I didn’t. My Tinder profile was closed, my legs closed, and my vibrators loaded.

It’s like that. I have already put dating and sex on the back burner, and I am more than willing to do so again in the name of my protection, that of my daughter and of our community.

But I’ll tell you this: 2020 definitely made me question my status as an independent woman, perhaps wanting to settle down with someone nice before this whole pandemic started.

Someone who I could snuggle up to in my bed without fear of contracting the plague.

And of course most of my friends are fed up with their partners now. Working from home, side by side, while trying to manage their children’s virtual schooling, trapped in seemingly tiny homes with no possibility of just being alone, it makes sense that so many marriages are struggling right now. It’s a lot of pressure and solidarity.

But as I keep telling all my friends, this is yet another adult to crawl into bed with at night.

Someone to talk to.

Someone to deal with.

And yes, someone to fuck. On the occasion when we are not too exhausted for this mutual orgasm to be worth pursuing.

So if you have a partner (assuming they’re not abusive or horrible, because if they are, take 2020 as an excuse to leave), just consider climbing on them tonight.

Naked.

Simply because you can.

Do it for single parents. Take advantage of your ability to fuck safely and don’t take this gift for granted.

Of course, your partner may have a terrible habit of leaving their dishes in the sink or speaking too loudly on their Zoom calls.

But he’s another adult. In your house. Hope you are up to date with all the places you love to be touched.

So let them touch you there. Because far too many of us are not affected at all this year.

At least, not affected the way we want to be.

And we don’t even know when that might happen again. So we need to know that you are not wasting the sex that is otherwise always (or almost always) available to you.

You can thank me when you’re done.

(Psssst… hey you! Yeah, you – the one that’s struggling in a thousand different ways right now, just trying to keep your head above water, unable to think of anything other than survival. If sex is there. last thing you’re thinking about right now, I really get it. I would like to think of everyone who happily fucks, just because it’s the one simple pleasure that couples can still hold onto. And because that I miss sex so much myself. But if that is just not what you want at all, honor that. And know that you deserve to have a partner who honors it too.)

Prosecutor’s journey to ‘adult shop’ ends in demotion and pay cut for longtime Cumberland County employee, lawsuit says https://iotamagazine.co.uk/prosecutors-journey-to-adult-shop-ends-in-demotion-and-pay-cut-for-longtime-cumberland-county-employee-lawsuit-says/ Sun, 28 Mar 2021 22:17:59 +0000 https://iotamagazine.co.uk/prosecutors-journey-to-adult-shop-ends-in-demotion-and-pay-cut-for-longtime-cumberland-county-employee-lawsuit-says/

BRIDGETON – A 40-year-old employee of the Cumberland County District Attorney’s Office is suing her employer, claiming she was reprimanded after telling a colleague the prosecutor was frequenting “an upscale adult shop”.

An internal affairs investigation was launched in March after discovering that longtime employee Francine Hovermann, 58, of Minotola, told a colleague the details of her January trip to Philadelphia with the county prosecutor. of Cumberland, Jennifer Webb-McRae, complaint filed October 21.

On January 11, Webb-McRae and Hovermann traveled to Philadelphia to celebrate Hovermann’s birthday. After dinner, they went to the Kink Shoppe, an “upscale adult boutique,” ​​where Webb-McRae purchased two vibrators, according to the lawsuit.

About a month after the trip, Hovermann and legal secretary Mary Kaganzev went to lunch in Bridgeton, where the lawsuit says Hovermann told Kaganzev about the trip and the alleged purchases of Webb-McRae.

After lunch, Kaganzev complained to the professional standards unit of the Cumberland County Attorney’s Office because she believed it was inappropriate for Hovermann to tell her about the trip and the alleged purchases, said the trial, adding Webb-McRae and First Deputy Prosecutor Harold Shapiro then authorized the internal affairs investigation by the standards unit.

But Hovermann maintains in the lawsuit that the discussion between her and Kaganzev did not violate any internal rules or regulations within the county prosecutor’s office. In addition, this internal affairs division does not have the power to investigate personal and private matters and conversations of employees which have no bearing on the duties and responsibilities as employees of the prosecutor’s office.

Webb-McRae, a nomination backed by Democrats in 2010, could not immediately be reached for comment Thursday evening.

The lawsuit adds that the investigation’s use of public resources for an entirely private and personal matter was an abuse of power.

The prosecutor’s office sought to end Hovermann as a punishment, according to the lawsuit. She was ultimately demoted two steps from her role as public manager / certified office administrator to legal secretary, reducing her annual salary by approximately $ 30,000, according to the lawsuit.

Breach of confidentiality and lack of candor were among the charges against Hovermann, according to the lawsuit.

On September 4, Shapiro sent a letter of reprimand to Hovermann, who, according to the lawsuit, said: “Your disclosure to Kaganzev did not reflect personal respect for Kaganzev or the prosecutor. The disclosure of personal information involving the prosecutor in Kaganzev also did not reflect positively on the office. “

Shapiro added that Hovermann had acted inappropriately in also telling William T. Johnson, former Detective Chief of the Cumberland County District Attorney’s Office, about his trip to Philadelphia with Webb-McRae.

The lawsuit also claims that during the internal affairs investigation, Hovermann was ordered to answer questions under threat of disciplinary action and / or termination regarding his personal trip to Philadelphia with Webb-McRae and who else Hovermann told the story to.

The lack of a frank accusation against Hovermann resulted from Hovermann initially denying to Home Affairs detectives that she had told Kaganzev about the trip to Philadelphia with Webb-McRae. However, the lawsuit says Hovermann called detectives the same day he was questioned to change his initial statement.

On September 20, Webb-McRae issued Hovermann’s demotion, according to the lawsuit. The demotion is currently pending appeal to the Civil Service Commission.

The written reprimand is dealt with in Superior Court.

Hovermann requests that the written reprimand be quashed and that the internal affairs investigation be withdrawn without any further action being taken against her, as well as her attorney fees and expenses covered.

Cumberland County attorney Ted Baker declined to comment on the pending litigation.

“This is a personal and private matter and it should have stayed that way,” said John Rowland, Hovermann’s lawyer. “There are ongoing litigation in several forums and agencies and we don’t want to taint the ongoing investigation by commenting further. The costume speaks for itself.

The Orthodox Sex Guru – The New York Times https://iotamagazine.co.uk/the-orthodox-sex-guru-the-new-york-times/ Sun, 28 Mar 2021 22:17:59 +0000 https://iotamagazine.co.uk/the-orthodox-sex-guru-the-new-york-times/

A young woman I told about the sect of Hasidism Pupa – who asked me not to use her name to protect her privacy, as did most Orthodox women I spoke with – told me that she remembers hearing versions of this story many times since she was 8 or 9 years old, and remembers going with her eighth grade classmates to a fair in another girls’ yeshiva in her Brooklyn neighborhood. The fair was held in an auditorium that featured a life-size diorama of a mother eternally bathing her daughter in boiling water – a punishment for an undisclosed breach of physical modesty.

For Marcus’ Haredi patients, most of their sex education was most likely just before their marriage in classes or tutorials with a kallah instructor, often a rabbi’s wife, who teaches the sacred rules of sexuality. Mid-period quarantine is a crucial lesson and is usually followed by a summary of what is and is not allowed in the bedroom for the rest of the month, along with some minimal practical advice, such as suggesting usage. of a lubricant in preparation for sex.

One morning, at the polite round table where she is chatting with her patients, Marcus handed me a bridal manual distributed by kallah teachers. This particular book was written for the modern Orthodox; it’s relatively gradual. The clitoris, for example, is mentioned twice. Even so, the emphasis is on the woman’s responsibility to keep the relationship on the right side of the law. The Talmud “indicates that during marital relations, the husband should not look at or kiss the woman’s makom ervah,” his private place, the manual warns. The lights must be turned off, a sheet must cover the couple, the position must be missionary – the woman is responsible for keeping the spiritual sex, to keep it chaste.

If it doesn’t, a parable in the introduction implies, God’s Chosen One can “fall over the edge” of a cliff. “And this book,” Marcus reminded me, “is modern.” Her Haredi women seem to feel their rooms are almost dotted with Talmudic “trigger wires,” she said, where one wrong move can cause destruction.

When starting therapy with a new patient, Marcus told me earlier this month, “I feel like I’m in a canyon and I need to find my footing. “Delicately, painstakingly searching with each of them, she helps women remember moments, recent or dating back to childhood,” when they have felt something thrilling, something wrinkled in the stomach, funny sensations, a warmth in them never identified the sensation as sexual at all. Despite their flat, resilient voices and bewilderment, she inspires them to recall those fleeting experiences, relate them to eros, and understand that the feelings are positive. “It gives me the foothold,” she said. “Then we can start to pick ourselves up. And meanwhile, she added, “I have to get over their fear: how do I know that the place where you are leading me won’t make me want to do terrible things?” She reminds them that God wants a husband and a wife to be close and assures them that she “leads them to a better marriage and to be closer to God”.

Marcus traces his path to his vocation back to his father. He “would tell you that he is absolutely not a feminist,” she said, but he was dismayed to find that, since all of her children attended modern Orthodox schools, only his brothers began to study the Talmud. when they have reached the fifth year. Girls were not expected to read the sacred text at any age, a restriction that has since given way to certain segments of orthodoxy. At home, he entrusted his daughters with Talmudic pages from the age of 10; very early on, he endorsed the paths of independence.

Man has 6-inch hand-held shower head removed from his butt after ‘accidentally slipping’ in bathroom https://iotamagazine.co.uk/man-has-6-inch-hand-held-shower-head-removed-from-his-butt-after-accidentally-slipping-in-bathroom/ Sun, 28 Mar 2021 22:17:59 +0000 https://iotamagazine.co.uk/man-has-6-inch-hand-held-shower-head-removed-from-his-butt-after-accidentally-slipping-in-bathroom/

MAN had a 6 inch handheld shower head removed from his butt after “accidentally slipping” into the bathroom.

The 26-year-old man from India had to detach the PVC pipe connecting the shower head to the wall to get to the hospital.

Upon admission to Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital and Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research in New Delhi, the man denied installing the shower head there himself.

Her vital signs were stable and there was no trace of blood in her rectum, according to the BMJ case report.

Scans revealed that the shower head was six inches deep in the man’s basin, but caused no internal damage.

The man was put under general anesthesia while doctors removed the object.

    The scan revealed there was no internal bleeding and the man was released from the hospital 48 hours later

No serious damage was caused and the man was allowed to return home 48 hours later.

The report notes how the correct size, material, and number of objects must be determined before processing can continue.

And suggests that some patients need a psychiatric consultation.

“A proper history and examination are mandatory to look for signs and symptoms of perforation and infection, such as fever, severe abdominal pain and bleeding,” Dr. Peeyush Kumar wrote in the case report.

“The story is often ambiguous and incomplete due to a high level of embarrassment and social stigma attached to the disease. The same was observed in our case.

“Although the patient reported accidental shower head insertion and refused voluntary insertion, there is a strong suspicion of voluntary insertion for autoerotic purposes.”

This is not the first time that a foreign object has to be removed from a rectum.

In fact, it’s surprisingly common.

“A wide variety of objects have been reported, including bottles, cans, glass ampoules, stones, small rods, fruits and vegetables, vibrators, dildos and toys,” added Dr Kumar. .

“The insertion of objects for autoerotic purposes is the most common cause of rectal foreign bodies.

“Other common causes include accidents and assaults. The presentation is often delayed and the story is often incorrect.

“Two-thirds of the patients are men in their 30s or 40s, who use such objects for autoerotic purposes.”

Last year a man punctured his intestines after “losing control” of a flexible 30-inch sex toy after a drunken night.

The 53-year-old man presented to A&E complained of severe pain in his lower abdomen and admitted to inserting a battery-free sex toy into his rectum.

Doctors noted that the sex toy was inserted into the rectum while the man was “under the influence of alcohol”, resulting in “loss of control”.

The Bachelor Season 25 Episode 1 https://iotamagazine.co.uk/the-bachelor-season-25-episode-1/ Sun, 28 Mar 2021 22:17:59 +0000 https://iotamagazine.co.uk/the-bachelor-season-25-episode-1/

After 24 long seasons, The single person finally kicks off season 25 with its first Black Bachelor. And the franchise had a great call with Matt James, a big, shy broker who also works with underprivileged children. Tonight Matt took on the impossible task of meeting 32 women in one evening, the most Single history, then eliminate eight. He was extremely nervous pretty much the entire time, but somehow it made him one of the most endearing singles we’ve had in a while. Unlike Colton (“I’m a virgin!”) Or Peter (“I’m a pilot!”), Matt seems to sincerely believe that this Single the process might actually work (“I think so,” he tells his pretty mom), despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

Part of its appeal can be attributed to the fact that Matt is a newbie to Bachelor Nation: never appeared on The bachelorette or Baccalaureate In Paradise before that, although he is a close friend with Bachelorette Tyler Cameron dreamboat and almost appeared in the Clare Crawley season. So, Matt’s confused charm appears to be genuine, as he tries to find words other than “Likewise” and “I like it” as he meets a plethora of complete strangers, in the hopes of finding a real love match. Of course, that seems impossible, especially when you consider the multitude of recent Single ruptures. But these crazy kids Tayshia and Zac just finished The bachelorette on a positive note, so who knows? Matt at least seems sincere about his intentions, which might make him a better bachelor than most.

He’s also a trailblazer for the franchise, a position he wisely discusses with host Chris Harrison – “the pressure I put on myself as the first Black Bachelor” – before meeting just one candidate, acknowledging that s’ he is dating a black woman or a white woman, someone out there is bound to be in arms. It’s a thoughtful move that helps bring the issue of race to the fore, at least for a few moments. Thankfully, some contestants in tonight’s diverse crop are also highlighting Matt’s unique status in the Single world, highlighting how important it is to see this kind of representation (again, finally) in a popular reality TV series.

Certainly it is the Single first, so that things don’t stay serious for long; To stand out from the fray, women show up in everything from goat’s feet to football gear. Kaili appears in lingerie and a few dresses to choose from; Katie just brings her own vibrator. The problem with bringing in a vibrator as an accessory, however, is that you are then stuck wearing it all night, and will likely now be known as a “vibrator”. Sometimes a gadget isn’t enough, however, a painful lesson learned by professional ballerina Alicia who keeps twirling on her toes (I screwed every Little pretty things during the holidays. Not proud.)

Even in the midst of the plethora of women, what would be really great this season is to see them build each other up instead of spending all of their time breaking down chasing the same man. I know, I must have wanted to watch a completely different show. But you would have hoped that the Single-powers-that-be would have learned lessons from last season, in which contestants barely old enough to drink legally like Mykenna and Hannah Ann plugged the works with endless drama and probably couldn’t count on them so you can still choose a life partner at that age. (Swinging in the opposite direction, the next Bachelorette the season didn’t really work out either, when 39-year-old Clare Crawley decided competitor Dale the nanosecond he got out of the limo.) And yet, here is Kit, 21, among the youngest Single competitors, already firing daggers at the self-proclaimed ‘queen’ Victoria – I mean, rightly so, Victoria fears – but declaring herself king, CEO, president. They’ll probably keep these two there for weeks just to verbally fight, adding to The single person’s non-feminist agenda. I know they have to show all of these moments for the “drama to come this season!” clips, but it would be nice to see some real genuine friendships evolve from The single person this time.

Especially since Matt himself seems so genuine, it casts a glimmer of hope over the entire season. Yeah, I know he’s already pushed himself Cameo, and he and Tyler have too many goods. I’m not even a religious person, but like candidate Rachael, I couldn’t help but choke a bit when Matt decided to start the first night with a group prayer, true to himself. and his faith. He knows he’s not the sweetest talker or a gamer like the singles of the past. Like any normal person would be, he is overwhelmed with the process of meeting so many beautiful women at once, and on television to boot. But his relationship with Abigail, the recipient of the first impression, was really sweet, as she spoke about her deafness and he greatly admired her openness and honesty. It happens to me every season; I’m willing to throw it all away as some unnecessary social exercise that gives me a few hours of brainless TV every week, then a moment like Matt handing Abigail the rose on the couch pops up and I’m sucked in for real. Shit, Single. You got me again.

Stray observations

  • My pick for the last four: Abigail, Chelsea the jaw-dropping model, Sarah the presenter from San Diego who came home to babysit her dad with ALS, and lawyer Kristin, mostly because of it. tweet:

  • Honesty, I feel like Matt’s hardest job must have been remembering the names of all the women he fair meet.
  • Victoria looks so bright on screen that I feel like the makeup artists backstage must hate her too.
  • The pre-game prayer got a “Whoo!” “
  • Accessories for the joke on the “buzzkill” vibrator. Oh my God, she named him MJ.
  • From previews: Never-kissed Heather (from Colton’s season) just appeared? Is that so? I’m so against this fairly recent trend of people just appearing on The single person and The bachelorette whenever they feel like it. Respect the sanctity of the rose ceremony, folks!
  • This is just a passage for this important moment Single premiere, but watch this space for a possible recap or an occasional roundtable, depending on how this season unfolds!

“Is that a gun in your pocket?” ” See again https://iotamagazine.co.uk/is-that-a-gun-in-your-pocket-see-again/ Sun, 28 Mar 2021 22:17:59 +0000 https://iotamagazine.co.uk/is-that-a-gun-in-your-pocket-see-again/

There are bad movies, and then there are worse movies, and then there are duds like “Is that a gun in your pocket?” Loosely based on Aristophanes’ “Lysistrada” – the 2,000 year old Greek play that has inspired everything before, from a Wild West musical (1955 “The Second Greatest Sex”) to a short Broadway extravaganza. unwarranted duration (“Lysistrada Jones,” aka “Give It Up!”) to a Spike Lee Joint (“Chi-Raq”) – the smutty, smarmy farrago of writer-director Matt Cooper plays like the kind of wink, B-movie nudge amused Deep South drive-in regulars in the 1970s.

The level of humor is set early on when the public is informed that everything will take place in a small town in Texas with a population of 6,969. (No, really.) Cooper displays a colossal lack of taste by starting his conspiracy by having a student pull a handgun out of his father’s closet to impress a classmate, then inadvertently injuring a guard. of the crosswalk. It’s hard to forget how many times such a tragedy has unfolded in real life, and almost impossible not to feel uncomfortable as this mishap is played out for a laugh.

In fact, Jenna Keeley (Andrea Anders) doesn’t think the near-fatal shooter is funny at all. Indeed, she is so upset that she tries to convince her husband Glenn (Matt Passmore), a man who loves to hunt and loves to own guns, to give up his guns for the sake of his family and society in general. Unsurprisingly, Glenn refuses to let anyone, even his wife, limit his right to bear arms. One thing leads to another, through a series of complications that are meant to be funny, but aren’t, and Jenna ultimately succeeds in uniting other women and girlfriends in town in her campaign to deny men sexual favors. who are not ready to disarm.

When it comes to cheap laughs with horny dudes, alluring wives and girlfriends, sex-obsessed stereotypical Hispanics, and gun culture extremists (at one point, an NRA offers to supply prostitutes to sexually frustrated city dwellers), “Is that a gun in your pocket?” relies on veterans who support gamers to make a fool of themselves. Cloris Leachman shamelessly flatters like a horny golden-ager whose crude blowjob jokes, vibrators and other naughty bits are meant to get a laugh, while John Heard, portrayed as the city’s sheriff, suggests that hitting a shark with a bar stool in “Sharknado” really wasn’t the low point of his career.

To say anything else about this debacle, or the people for whom it provided easy wages, would be needlessly mean.

3 health benefits Dosage and side effects https://iotamagazine.co.uk/3-health-benefits-dosage-and-side-effects/ Sun, 28 Mar 2021 22:17:58 +0000 https://iotamagazine.co.uk/3-health-benefits-dosage-and-side-effects/

Rhodiola rosea comes in many forms — powder, tincture, extract, and pills — as well as in supplements with other complementary ingredients. As for the dosage, start small and increase gradually.

Robinett advises, “An eighth teaspoon a day to start, if you’re using a powder standardized to around 3% salidosides, for example, which is then slowly increased to find the sweet spot. For the most part, if this is the right herb for you, it tends to be between 100 and 400 milligrams per day. If you don’t see a benefit, it may be worth exploring other options. “

Additionally, it’s important to remember that adaptogens generally work in your body over time, so try to incorporate them into your daily routine for the maximum benefits. As Doctor of Functional Medicine Frank Lipman, MD shares: “In my experience, most patients who take rhodiola start to feel better a few weeks to a month, so be patient. If you want, you can take an occasional break to see if the herbs really work.

If you have a local herbal store, herbalists may be able to provide you with a specific dosage for your needs, or blend you with other herbs that would be relevant to the symptoms you are experiencing.

You also want to make sure Rhodiola rosea (and all the other herbal supplements you take!) are from a trusted source. Look for third-party certifications of the brands you buy, such as the USP or NSF seal, to make sure you are taking the adaptogen in its pure form.

Ky wanted to create a safe space for women to learn about their bodies (Courtesy)

Whether I encourage women to talk about their “ladies’ gardens”, try out new toys, or chat on the This Morning couch, my job is never boring.

My entire 30-year career has been about empowering women to explore and enjoy their sexuality – nothing makes me blush anymore.

I was raised by liberal parents. I remember taking physics classes and feeling like girls shouldn’t take precedence over boys.

I knew we were just as capable. But there was nothing in my school years to suggest that I would try to revolutionize the sex industry later in life.

I was 16 when I lost my virginity, but had sexual experiences earlier.

After my art degree in Brighton, I taught English in Japan, then came to London in the 1990s.

There was so much negativity around sexuality at the time, the government banned teaching about LGBTQ + life, and the AIDS epidemic was still significant.

The idea for Sh! it all started after a disastrous shopping trip for adult toys in Soho.

As a liberated feminist, I innocently believed it was my right to explore my sexuality, but these shops were horrible – alienating, intimidating and oppressive to women.

As a woman, you were seen as a “game” to get the attention of perverts. The products were all for men.

I visited over 20 stores that day, getting crazier and crazier.

The more traditional “lingerie with toys” type stores seemed more female-friendly, but mostly aimed to be sexy for your man.

I stomped on the house, moaning to my friend that there wasn’t a single store for women.

She said, “So open one! And, three months later, in April 1992, that’s exactly what I did.

With just £ 700 (Sh105k) and no real business plan, Sh !, the UK’s first female store, opened to the press with fanfare because it was new.

At the start, we had more journalists than clients. And there were slim choices of women-friendly products available.

Sex and the city

In the late 90s, Cosmo magazine asked us which toy we would recommend the most, and we answered the bunny.

No one had heard of it. The next day we had 600 orders and since then an entire episode of Sex And The City has been devoted to him. So I guess we brought it to the general public

We started making our own cute and stylish little toys and quickly gained loyal customers, including celebrities.

I can’t name any names, but there has been the original face of Girl Power, a Sex And The City actress, a model, many pop, soap and sports legends, and various Hollywood celebrities.

Plus, some stellar British actresses enjoyed a private in-store party a few years ago, and let’s say everyone had a fab time.

There have been a lot of ups and downs along the way. At first, we were brought to justice by overzealous council officials for “selling obscene products without a license”.

More exciting was in 2002 when I was invited to an AIDS awareness event in Downing Street.

It would have been rude not to take a present for the host, Cherie Blair. So I took him a bunny, all nicely wrapped.

I felt nervous going through security checks!

Whenever I go to a party or event, I always take vibrators.

People say, horrified, “Oh, my aunt or my grandmother won’t want that!” But I leave them on the table, and we always bring them home.

There is no reason to stop being orgasmic after menopause. Lubricant is one of the best sexual aids out there, regardless of your age.

There was never any question of flogging of products for me.

I wanted to have a safe space where women could feel comfortable coming for advice, learning more about their bodies, and enjoying their sexuality.

Once a woman walked in with a list of products. We gave her a cup of tea and after she relaxed it turned out her husband said she was boring and wanted to kick things up.

She just wanted a hug. We told him to go away and think about it. We didn’t have a sale that day, but that wasn’t the point.

We also helped a couple who had been married for two years but had never consummated the relationship.

And advised a mom on how to get her vibrator back to her teenage daughter who used it!

For a long time, our policy was that men were only welcome as guests of women.

What is TCM? Underlying principles and 5 branches https://iotamagazine.co.uk/what-is-tcm-underlying-principles-and-5-branches/ Sun, 28 Mar 2021 22:17:58 +0000 https://iotamagazine.co.uk/what-is-tcm-underlying-principles-and-5-branches/

Traditional Chinese Medicine, or TCM, dates back 2,500 to 5,000 years.

The ancient medical text which is still considered today as the doctrine of Chinese medicine, The classic interior of the yellow emperor (黄帝内经), we thought it had been written one day between 2600 BC and 300 BC. However, more recent findings suggest that the roots of TCM may extend even deeper.

In 1991, archaeologists discovered a well-preserved site, 5,000-year-old mummy in Central Europe who had acupuncture points tattooed on his body. Detailed x-rays revealed arthritis in the hips, knees and lumbar spine of this prehistoric man. Scientists were amazed that his illness matched tattooed acupuncture points, which combined to form an acupuncture treatment regimen meaningful for his conditions.

And just this year researchers have discovered an atlas of anatomy written in Han Dynasty China over 2000 years ago — 500 years ago before the Greeks created what has long been considered the first map of human anatomy. This important discovery has implications for the basis of acupuncture and for the history of medicine as we know it.

It is safe to say that the Chinese have been practicing the techniques that are now collectively known as TCM for a long, long time.

With its rich history and wide reach, TCM has stood the test of time and has become widely practiced outside of Asia in recent years.
