Film recommendation: Saint Frances

A small but special film that examines so much of what goes to make up human – particularly female – life shown with warmth and some great taboo-busting. You wait, well, all your life for a film or TV show that mentions period sex and then, guess what, two come along at once. First, Michaela Coel’s searing television series I May Destroy You literally examines a blood clot, then Saint Frances shows us a bed and, yes, faces covered in blood. People who menstruate (yes, I will say that, JKR, because it is valid), we are seen and the taboos are being busted. But Saint Frances is about much, much more than this – it is just an early indicator that this is a film that is real, messy (literally and metaphorically) and will show its characters with their charms and flaws, their reality – an...

Married Couple Seek Woman: Have You Tried a Hoover and a Wet Sponge ?

For all married couples who are disrespectful towards women who do not wish to be part of their sordid sexual games, I say to you 'have you tried a hoover and a wet sponge ?'.   The amount of married straight couples who lurk in the shadows of online dating sites tend to have a penchant for lesbians over bisexuals. 9 times out of 10, it’s the wife who holds a flame to experience a lustrous passionate girl on girl action while her husband can either watch or with consent might join in. I do not have an issue with couples wanting to spice up their relationship but I do hold a grudge when they begin pestering lesbians on dating sites. I thought it was clearly obvious within the label that men are not wanted. We are a very promiscuous community but it should not be mistaken for want...

South Africa’s Parliament to bar marriage officers from refusing to marry same-sex couples.

South Africa’s parliament passed a bill on Wednesday 1st July, that bars marriage officers from objecting to marrying same-sex couples. As also reported on Times Live , the latest stride South Africa has taken in advancing LGBT+ rights is strengthening its 2006 legislation that enshrined marriage equality. What basically happened was that the National Council of Provinces passed the Civil Union Amendment Bill that was drafted by lawmakers to repeal repeal section six of the Civil Union Act. This section, unfortunately, left some “decision” freedom to marriage officers to refuse to marry a same-sex couple using religion as justification. Section six has remained legal for too many years, and has caused loads of proplems to LGBT+ couple willing to get married in cities where marriage offi...
