Fisting is lovely and normal and lots of women enjoy it

its okay for girls to like fisting
(Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

I wrote something recently which casually mentioned fisting.

This happens quite a lot. It happens for two reasons, firstly that I write about sex a lot and secondly because I find the word ‘fisting’ inherently hilarious.

Anyway, people on the internet did not seem to share my attitude towards fisting and took more of a ‘ban this sick filth’ stance. Which didn’t surprise me.

But what did surprise me was the implied assumption in many of the messages I received that fisting is exclusively the preserve of gay men.

It’s a misunderstanding that I’ve encountered a lot over the last few years of… Read the full story

We may curse Black Friday as an American tradition but there’s no denying Brits love a bargain too.

Especially when it’s on something you were going to buy anyway – only a fool browses Black Friday sales without intention, ending up with a saucepan set, cat bed and some Diamonique earrings.

Buying a flight is one of the splurges least likely to cause buyer’s remorse – after all, few people regret going on holiday.

Teddy bear gets flown 200 miles to be reunited with four-year-old girl who lost him at the airport

(Picture: Twitter/FlyLoganair)

When four-year-old Summer, from Orkney, forgot to put her favourite teddy bear back in her bag in the security area in Edinburgh airport, she was devastated.

Her mum, Donna, only noticed the bear was missing after she and Summer had took off on their flight home.

Once they arrived, Donna sent out an appeal on Facebook to ask everyone at Edinburgh airport to keep an eye out for her daughter’s beloved bear.

Thankfully, cabin crew member Kirsty Walter spotted the Facebook post. She quickly set to work on reuniting Summer with her teddy, tracking down the bear and popping him on a 200 mile flight to Kirkwall.

A cautionary tale of dogs who ate bees and regretted it

Human beings have all done stupid things we regret.

Putting ice cream in the post to impress a girl, not wearing a condom with a new partner, and playing dating games as fully grown adults.

Despite being the most blessed creatures to ever walk the earth, dogs sometimes do stupid things too.

Like mistaking dildos for dog toys, accidentally agreeing to doing the canine version of Tough Mudder and attempting to escape their family home via the roof.

The biggest doggy regret of all, though?

Eating bees.

If you write a sex scene in a book, you’re running a risk.

It’s the risk that you might end up nominated for a Bad Sex award.

The Bad Sex award is a sort of honour, sort of humiliation and functions as a fantastic way to force authors into asking the question ‘Do I really need my nubile 25 year old heroine to have a 45 minute masturbation session while looking in the mirror?’

Now, the good people of the Literary Review who run the award have admitted that this year’s entries (LOL, entries) are actually all pretty good.

We think they’re being quite generous. Beware, some of… Read the full story

Would you let this 12-year-old tattoo you?

It’s easy to do things you regret when it comes to permanently etching a design on your skin.

Tattooing the whites of your eyes black? Room for regret. Getting your pet’s paws inked on your breasts? Regret. Going swimming too soon after getting a tattoo and getting flesh-eating bacteria? Absolute regret.

How about getting a tattoo done by a 12-year-old? Not as much regret as might think – just ask his mum!

Despite not being legally old enough to get his own tattoo, 12-year-old Ezrah Dormon is already making waves in… Read the full story

What it’s like to get ready for a night out when you have social anxiety

More than just a bit of lippie required (Picture: Getty)

We all have days where we don’t feel like being around other people. But having social anxiety disorder is something more debilitating.

It’s characterised by ‘overwhelming anxiety and excessive self-consciousness in everyday social situations‘ with a ‘persistent, intense, and chronic fear of being watched and judged by others and of being embarrassed or humiliated by their own actions’.

Yes, I’m done! Every present I want to give this Christmas has been bought or ordered and now I get to relax for the next few weeks. And I’m feeling pretty smug.

Admittedly I haven’t wrapped anything yet – but only because I like arranging a special day to do it, surrounded by all my paper, tags and sellotape, whilst supping a glass of wine.

Everything you need to know before you get eyelash extensions

If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent months debating getting eyelash extensions, gazing upon before and after transformation pictures, desperately trying to justify the price, and booking them cancelling appointments.

I went ahead and got my first set of eyelash extensions earlier this year, and had my second set done last month.

It feels like every time I blink someone’s asking a question about the fluttery things on top of my eyelids, ranging from how much eyelash extensions cost (answer: a lot) to how you’re supposed to sleep without entirely messing them up.

Black Friday shopping might ruin your sex life

(Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

If you’re a bargain hunter, you’re probably not getting laid this weekend.

Black Friday is allegedly bad for your sex life, at least according to a survey reported in RSVPLive.


Because the buzz of buying something new replaces the buzz you get from sex, making getting it on redundant.

The survey found that one in 10 women said they get a bigger thrill from finding a bargain on the high street than they do from having sex with their partner.

Just over one in three of the women surveyed also said that they felt ‘deeply satisfied’ after splurging on a hot bargain.
