Dream jobs don’t come around often.

How to deal with porexia

You know, other than that gig as a whisky ambassador, the position that pays you to travel the world and review fancy homes, and the offer of getting paid to play with Lego all day.

So when these opportunities arrive, you’ve got to grab them with both hands. Then put ’em in your pants, in this case.

London-based sex toy brand LoveWoo is currently advertising for an official sex toy reviewer.

Yes, that’s a job, and yes, it involves vigorously testing out sex toys… Read the full story

Meet the man who says men shouldn’t date British women because they’re overweight and masculine


When Richard La Ruina’s publicist asked if I wanted to interview him, I had no idea who she was talking about.

But it’s August and not much else seems to be going on, so I had a cursory Google.

How a bakery is using bread-making to help people recover from mental health issues

Richard has made something of a name for himself by advising men on how they can date. Or rather, helping men to find the types of partner they want. The crux of his advice? That men should date Eastern European women.

I try to make a habit of ignoring men who say unpleasant things about women in order to get attention. But, in spite of myself, having read the things he had said about British women, I said yes.

I asked Richard why thinks Eastern European women are better than British ones.

In a surprisingly monotonous voice, he told Metro.co.uk:

When it comes to booze, rum fans don’t see the point in straying from their trusted favourite.

Whether it is in a mojito, paired with cola, or enjoyed on the beach in a cool daiquiri, there is quite simply no better alcoholic tipple out there.

It hits the spot and it even works well in desserts.

Metro’s A to Z of fetishes: H is for hair, head games and hardsports

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

One of the things that makes life so interesting is that everybody’s different.

And that’s particularly obvious when it comes to sex, because what gets one person’s motors running is often very different from what you might enjoy yourself.

metro illustrationsMetro’s A to Z of fetishes: G is for gerbils, glasses and grannies

As we’ll discover in this episode of Metro’s A-Z of fetishes, the letter H doesn’t just stand for hair.

It stands for all kinds of things, including some pretty horrible ones like hardsports.

Brace yourself now, and don’t say we didn’t warn you.

5 reasons why facesitting will turn a guy on

(Picture: Deirdre Spain)

One fundamental truth about the language of sex is that some words and expressions are immediately, viscerally hot, while others are really not.

There’s one particular expression that never fails to make my knees buckle, and that’s at the heart of what I want to talk about today.

What is it? ‘I want to sit on your face.’

Women who tell me this or, better yet, that they’re going to sit on my face – can do pretty much anything they like to me after that, because I’m already sold.

Is this the most intense sex toy in the world? We braved the… Read the full story

When it comes to great sex, you can’t beat a bit of variety. However, it’s fair to say that most people have a go-to position they can rely on for fail safe satisfaction.

However, it’s doggy style that continues to smash the charts and has even previously been voted as the UK’s favourite sexual position.

The moment I realised I had to lose weight


It’s easy to pretend your weight isn’t an issue.

You can go through life avoiding flights of stairs, declining trips to the pool, avoiding group photos, and hiding the sweet wrappers so you can pretend the binge never happened.

Trust me – I’ve done it my entire life, and can confirm it’s possible.

I also know it’s a miserable way to live – and it will catch up with you eventually.

12 reasons why doggy style is the best sexual position there is

Most people who are overweight have an ‘oh sh*t’ moment. It’s a time when the penny drops, you take a long, hard look at yourself in the mirror, step on the scales, and see a number you associated with obese people.

Then you realise you’re the obese person. And you’re f*cking up your health.

For me, the realisation began when I was on holiday in America. Group… Read the full story

Mum shares powerful photo of the painful reality of breastfeeding

(Picture: Instagram/burzolife)

Breastfeeding isn’t easy.

There’s the struggle to get your baby to latch on. The feeling of failure when things don’t work. The sore nipples, the aching back, the baby’s cries that you can’t decipher.

The moment I realised I had to lose weight

For mum and photographer Angela Burzo, breastfeeding has been tough.

Fed up of the images of breastfeeding on Instagram and in popular media, that show the act as the most natural, blissful experience imaginable (and make mums struggling feel a bit sh*t in the process), Angela decided to share a photo of her reality of breastfeeding – the tears, the sleep… Read the full story

We could just about deal with a bag based on the poop emoji. That little smiling poo is cute. It can almost be confused with chocolate ice cream, if you’re unsettled.

But this.

Despite what Hollywood would like us to believe – not all sex is sexy.

All too often – it’s the polar opposite.

19 people reveal the exact moment they knew they were having sex with a terrible person

When you’re naked with someone you barely know, doing things in darkened rooms, often under the influence of a criminal amount of tequila – the sexiness can go awry.

It is likely that a woman will start feeling the symptoms of pregnancy about four weeks after conceiving.

Forgetfulness is a bloody nightmare.

We’ve all been there, whether it’s leaving your brolly at home on a rainy day, or leaving to oven on and turning your pizza into a charcoal frisbee.

The world may be a bit of a troubling place at the minute.

Oreos cannot solve that.

Rather than being based on the trouser sword of Jon Snow, the ‘Game of Moans Long Shaft’ is inspired by Jon Snow’s actual, well, sword. Hiw Longclaw. His weapon. Not the dirty kind.

We all know that unless you’re some kind of tequila connoisseur (if you are, cool. Let’s be friends), shots of tequila are simply the go-to way to ramp a night out up a few notches.

You can now get pink tequila, so at least your rough night out will look pretty
