There are Game of Thrones fans, and then there are Game of Thrones fans, if you know what I mean?

Should you be worried about your vagina absorbing the ingredients in your lube?

Sure, you had weekly viewing parties with your pals, helped your team win the GoT-themed pub quiz and received a ‘Sorry ladies, I’m in the night’s watch’ tee from your significant other as a joke for Christmas but…are you truly a Game of Thrones fan?

Because we’re not sure you are unless you have a Game of… Read the full story

Most people who’ve been turned down a date just get on with their day and forget about it.

But this guy is not most people. This is the type of guy who attempts to twist their crush’s arm by offering them money.

Wetherspoons will no longer put a plastic straw in your drink

17-year-old Leagan was offered credit card details by an old acquaintance who was interested in her.

They’d been to camp together when they were younger, but Leagan wasn’t interested in anything romantic with him, and declined when he asked her on a date.

After being rejected, the guy sent Leagan photos… Read the full story

Just when we thought we didn’t need another eye shadow palette, Huda Beauty drops her Desert Dusk Palette.

And predictably it’s gorgeous.

The Dubai-based beauty guru wrote on her Instagram that the Arabian landscape inspired palette is ‘going to take you guys on a journey.’

And there’s no doubt that she is determined to make the palette worth buying. Desert Dusk includes 18 sandy nudes, vibrant ochres and glimmering metallic hues that are utterly hypnotic, inspired by the desert at twilight.

The palette includes eight mattes, six pressed pearls, three duo-chrome toppers and one pure glitter. It also includes the beloved shade Angelic from… Read the full story

When you’re going through a breakup, your brain is likely to go a little – shall we say – off-piste.

You’ll end up doing things you would never in your right mind do. It sort of feels like you’re on a one woman rebellion mission.

It’s really all fine, because literally every other person in your situation does the same.

Your friends might take you to one side at the pub one day and tentatively suggest you need to stop doing All The Bad Things, but you don’t listen.

You’ve got a one-way ticket to self-sabotage city and they’re not invited.

We’re all either too poor, busy or space-deprived to own our own pooches, so we spend our days making eyes at cute canines on the street or begging pals with dogs to let us walk them.

Savvy companies are capitalising on our doggy desperation and offering us the chance to hang out with other people’s dogs in a safe setting where they’re more likely… Read the full story

Whether you’re queuing to meet Goofy, posing for photos wearing rose gold Minnie ears, or being all cute on a Disney themed date, if you’re at Disneyland, you, my friend, have given into your basic urges.

So it makes sense to have a drink to match your day of being basic.

Enter the pumpkin pie latte.

It’s pretty much a pumpkin spice latte, which, as we all know, is pretty much a basic person’s blood and… Read the full story

A pair of newlyweds have defied tradition by holding their wedding reception in their local Asda, where they first met and fell in love.

Living with a stoma bag isn’t miserable – it gives you a new lease of life

Despite hundreds of thousands of people living with stoma bags in the UK due to conditions such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and bowel cancer, many of us are unaware of how they affect a persons life. 

Should you be worried about your vagina absorbing the ingredients in your lube?

For those who don’t know, there are three types of stoma bag. There’s an ileostomy, which is where the small bowel is pulled outside of the abdomen to release waste into the bag, often used when the large bowel has perforated or has been so blocked up that it needs a… Read the full story

It may or may not seem odd to the female population, but nearly every male, that I know at least, has been asked the question: ‘If you could suck yourself off, would you do it?’

Now, there is a lot going on in this question – the main issue is whether you want to stick your erect penis into your own mouth, potentially ejaculating down your own throat. That’s the crux of the question – would you be down with that?

Ah, McDonald’s. The place where nobody knows your name, so you can peacefully consume an obscene amount of burgers and McNuggets without shame.

Its golden arches welcome us in a warm embrace. Its food is an unerring constant, guaranteed to taste exactly the same wherever you may be.

In times of uncertainty, McDonald’s is there.

It makes sense, then, that when people are high as a kite, they’re pretty keen for McDonald’s.

Girls are often told what we should and shouldn’t do.

Wear makeup, but not too much. Be confident, but never bossy.

A lot of the time, this advice is confusing nonsense based on reductive gender stereotypes and expectations of what girls and women ‘should’ be.

But in this case, it’s not. This time, a list of things for girls not to do is gloriously empowering.

It’s a list written by author and blogger Toni Hammer, who has two children.

Teenage pregnancy: The choice that changed my life

‘I can’t be pregnant,’ I said to the doctor who had just examined me.

‘But you are sexually active,’ he pointed out.

‘I wouldn’t say “active”.’ I explained. ‘I’m not sexing around all the time. Just, you know, when my parents are out or…what I mean is, I have a serious boyfriend and we only have sex sometimes. Well, actually it is more like making love.’

‘Yes… But you’re still pregnant.’

I met my boyfriend when I was 14 and we fell in love quickly and greedily with the fearless abandon reserved only for the young.

Going gluten-free? There are lots of beers to choose from now (Picture: Getty)

Since the gluten-free market exploded several years ago, there’s been no shortage of gluten-free items available.

11 things you only know if you’re gluten free

While we’re now spoilt for choice in terms of bread, pasta and cakes, it feels like beer has taken much longer to catch up.

But now we finally have a whole variety, from dedicated craft breweries to well-known gluten-free alternatives (and there are rumours of San Miguel launching their own version this month, too).

Here’s our guide to the perfect gluten-free pints.

When I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2015, it was something I really struggled to talk about.

Should you be worried about your vagina absorbing the ingredients in your lube?

I was worried that if people beyond my family and partner knew about the diagnosis, they would judge me. That the diagnosis would be all they’d see – and that they wouldn’t be able to see past it.

I convinced myself that my friends would treat me differently, that they’d feel uncomfortable around me and think I’m crazy.

I wasn’t crazy, I was poorly, and I needed help. Just… Read the full story

People who do Slimming World really, really love Slimming World.

A cursory look at #SlimmingWorldUK on Instagram will show you just how many thousands of dedicated dieters have lost weight with the plan, which allows those who follow it to eat pasta and bread.

One of the hardest things about trying to lose weight is having to be organised enough to make time to cook. Not everyone feels like slaving over a hot stove when they get home from work. So it’s no wonder that a lot of us opt for a ready… Read the full story

Living in a houseshare has become an standard rite of passage.

For millions of us, in those lean years between mum’s gaff and the marital pad, sharing digs with randoms is the only way to afford a place.

Guys spill the beans on how they lost their virginity

The benefits are many: your friendship circle will expand, there’s always someone to talk to, and they’ll probably have at least one hot friend.

But it doesn’t always turn out so well.

We never thought we’d be dreaming of living in a house in the desert, made out of a bunch of old shipping containers stuck together. But here we are. Blame the skills of modern designers.

London-based designer James Whitaker has released plans for a new house, due to be built in 2018, that’s made out of old shipping containers.

We’re not just talking about one sole shipping container creating a cosy microhome, mind you.

Nope, this is special. It’s a house that looks a… Read the full story

Undoubtedly, one of the biggest struggles in veganism is convenience.

While swapping from regular cheese to a dairy-free alternative might be getting easier as more and more supermarkets hop aboard the ‘Gary’ wagon, when you’re out and about, options become incredibly limited.

What’s more, lunchtimes can become a serious ordeal.

If you spend money on a sex toy, it’s nice if you can get a dual use out of it. 

10 stupid things you'll do after a breakup

For instance, a vibrator can be quite good for helping to work out any tension in a knotted muscle. Lube can apparently be used as make-up primer, and a rubber dildo will make a decent wrist support for your keyboard in extremis.

So it’s not a huge surprise that nipple clamps, which, let’s face is are basically just kinky clothes pegs, have found themselves being put to an alternative use.
