Dominatrix lives with slaves who cook her food and buy her groceries so she’ll whip them


Dahlia Rain’s home set-up isn’t exactly conventional.

She shares her home with sexual slaves, her subs, who cook, clean, tidy, buy groceries, walk the dog, and serve any and all of Dahlia’s needs.

They’ll also do whatever Dahlia’s boyfriend, John Fathom, needs whenever he pops round for a visit, whether it’s cooking bacon or sniffing Dahlia’s feet.

What do the slaves get in return? No sex, of course. But sexual teasing, domination, and getting whipped and spanked.

Dahlia got into the fetish world… Read the full story

Drinking turpentine is not a good idea, even if Tiffany Haddish does it

(Picture: Getty)

After she made us all desperately question who bit Beyoncé, Tiffany Haddish used her GQ interview to drop another bit of dirt: She occasionally drinks turpentine.

Unlike the Beyoncé anecdote, this bit of wisdom is not a gift that keeps on giving.

Instead it is a gift that we urge you to promptly return with a firm ‘no, thank you, Tiffany.’

‘A teaspoon of turpentine will not kill you,’ Tiffany told GQ. ‘The government doesn’t want you to know that if you have a cold, just take some turpentine with some sugar or castor oil or honey and it’ll go away the next day.’

Tiffany goes on to explain she… Read the full story

No, a can of Strongbow Dark Fruits isn’t healthier than an avocado

We all love a viral story – I know I’m the first one to click on a ‘you’ll never believe…’ headline.

Some are just a little too far-fetched for words, though, like the recent Student Problems article, ‘Turns Out Strongbow Dark Fruits Is Actually Healthier Than Avocados’.

It’s certainly an interesting theory, and there’s a huge buzz around it – but, sorry guys, there’s one glaring problem with the assertions.

Pakistan just hired its first trans newsreader


Pakistan is being praised for hiring its first and only transgender newsreader.

Marvia Malik just made history as the first trans woman to become an anchor at private news channel Kohinoor.

The 21-year-old journalism graduate from Lahore revealed she cried when she first found out she’d got the job as trans people often face discrimination in Pakistan, with many struggling to get employment

Some are forced into begging, dancing or prostitution to earn money.

The milestone quickly took over social media with celebs like Laverne Cox… Read the full story

A new Channel 4 documentary asks, ‘Are You Autistic?’: we speak to two of its stars

JP and Jo go through assessments on the show to see if they may be autistic (Picture: Channel 4)

During the making of Are You Autistic, a new documentary from Channel 4, 750,000 people completed an online survey to assess how many might unknowingly be on the autistic spectrum.

And the results were pretty surprising.

Of those who completed the survey, 87,000 had results indicating that they could well be autistic – a figure that equates to more than one in ten of the participants.

That’s a huge number.

More than half of them were women, which is astounding when you consider the generally accepted male to female… Read the full story

Young people are still struggling to find support for mental health issues

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

We’re becoming more open about our mental health – but support is still tricky to find.

A new report by YoungMinds has found that while awareness of young people’s mental health is growing, it’s still far too difficult for young people to get they help they need.

A YouGov survery of 2,100 adults found that 94% agree that mental health is just as important as physical health, and that 84% agree that people are more likely to talk about mental health than they used to be. That’s wonderful.

But YoungMinds surveys of 2,700 young people who have looked for support for their mental health, and 1,600 parents, shows… Read the full story

Versace T-shirts might cost £280 but they’re all the rage on Instagram

Fashion choices inspired by TV shows are nothing new.

With the success of the BBC’s Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, it’s no surprise that branded slogan t-shirts with the designer’s name are all the rage.

After the popularity of the show about the late designer’s death, the Italian brand released five new tops, and as expected, they cost a pretty penny.

The T-shirt was launched as part of the brand’s spring/summer 2018 collection, which Donatella Versace designed to commemorate the 20th anniversary of her brother’s death.

Sex is one of life’s greatest pleasures but we’ve all been through spells when work, family and social commitments leave you too knackered or unwilling to really put in the effort.

The Internet is chock-a-block with handy hints to spice things up in the bedroom

Sex in films vs sex IRL: How do they really compare?

You can buy sexy underwear; experiment with sex toys; have a dirty weekend away.

But really, who actually has the time, energy or money for that?

Why are Pringles so addictive and how many of the potato crisps are in a can?

Just the sight of these potato snacks has us salivating (Picture: Bloomberg via Getty Images)

Anyone who can resist sticking their hand in a tub of Pringles once the lid is off has willpower stronger than us ordinary mortals.

In the words of their catchy advertising slogan ‘once you pop, you can’t stop’, you may have wolfed down a three course gourmet dinner and be full to bursting but you’d still not be able to stop yourself devouring a tube of them.

But what is it about this crispy concoction of chemical flavourings, salt and starch that makes them just so moreish and addictive?

You know when Colin heads off to the U.S. to get laid in Love Actually?

You might want to change that plan a little and head to Australia.

A new survey suggests that the accent Australian people find the hottest is – you guessed it – British. Hooray.

Ashley Madison surveyed 1,765 of its members and found that 17% of people said a British accent would be their favourite to hear in the bedroom.

Brits beat French accents, who came in at 13%, followed by North America, Ireland, and Scandinavia in joint third place, and Spanish in fourth place.

72% of those surveyed said they’d prefer someone with an… Read the full story

Garden eyebrows are the next weird beauty trend we might actually end up wearing

(Picture: Instagram/taytay_xx)

Cool young people love plants, right? Just look at all their cacti-decorated shelves and succulent Instagrams.

We also love weird brow trends, judging by the overwhelming ways we were advised to play with the hairs above our eyes in 2017.

So it’s only natural that someone would combine our two cool, young passions by creating the garden brows trend – and it’s only natural that that someone would be Taylor R, the same vlogger who created Christmas tree brows.

The look is fairly self-explanatory, but it does take some skill to recreate.

Garden brows are all about turning your eyebrows into cute mini gardens, complete with… Read the full story

A mystery customer in search of a blanket has royally p*ssed off the creative community by threatening to ‘destroy’ a crafter’s business because she asked for proper payment.

Crocheter Krafty Katt received an Instagram message asking if she’d be up for doing a commission.

After a slight delay (which the customer told her off for), Krafty Katt began to ask what kind of blanket the client would like made.

‘I want a blanket,’ they wrote, ‘in a cathrines wheel stitch. You do know what that is right?

‘Light grey, light blue, and cream.

‘Oh and I would like it made out of natural fiber like… Read the full story

Milk Makeup is now 100% vegan

Makeup aficionados will be well aware of Milk Makeup, the cult cosmetics brand from the US.

Beauty editors are obsessed with the minimal (recyclable) packaging and no nonsense, multi-use products.

Milk has always swerved questionable ingredients like parabens, sulfates, SLS, SLES, formaldehyde, mineral oil, and talc in favour of more natural ingredients.

The brand is aimed at ‘girls who do their makeup quick’ and is full of easy to use products like a holographic stick highligter you can swipe on with one hand, and a concealer that comes with a wand in a tube so you… Read the full story

Grindr now reminds you to get regular HIV tests

(Picture: Grindr)

In an effort to promote safe sex and reduce rates of STIs in men who have sex with men, Grindr now delivers reminders to users to get regular HIV tests.

The world’s largest gay dating app will now send push notifications every three to six months to their users in the U.S., urging them to get tested – as long as they opt in for the feature.

The reminder will direct users to the nearest clinic that offers ‘non-judgy’ testing, with adverts for LGBTQ+-friendly clinics and support groups.

The launch follows a trial version in Pennsylvania, which discovered that 46% of Grindr users in that area hadn’t been tested in more… Read the full story
