Pivot and Protect – By our resident Wellness Expert Andi Lew

Andi

Pivot & Protect ! You’re well and truly into the flow of our new worldwide lock down laws. During this time, you may have been in “flight, fight or freeze mode”, which is a term used when one experiences trauma. During flight, you’ll want to run away from responsibility, reality, or anything else, fight for your family, rights or business, or freeze into a state of numbness. This is a grief state when we are at a loss or sense of fear.

Fear can be paralyzing. In fact, Hitler used fear as a powerful tool in WW2, because people don’t resist when in a state of fear. You might now start to be coming out of the above states and may have begun questioning your future, agendas, rights and direction.

sexting

 

Back by popular demand, we asked our Relationship Expert and Sexologist, Isiah McKimmie to tell us on how to spice up relationships through phone sex (video) amid this COVID-19 lockdown.

Wondering how to keep things interesting with your Bae while we’re all in lockdown? Or want to take things to the ‘next level’ with your latest Bumble match, but not sure how to do it from 1.5 metres apart?

I recently shared tips for dating creatively from a distance, so what’s the next step?

Enter sexting, phone sex or even video chat sex.

Yes, it might be a terrifying prospect. Even the thought of dirty talk or asking for what you want in person can be scary AF. But trust me, with some pro tips and a little practice, you’ll feel comfortable in no time. Aside from the obvious, there are quite a few benefits to ‘virtual romance’. Digital intimacy is a great way to keep your romance fun, playful and sexy – even if you can’t see each other in person. Sure, it’s kind of vulnerable, but that can actually bring you closer together. Virtual sex can also give you some great ideas to explore when you are finally able to meet each other again.

Do you know enough about STI/STDs?

STI's

Sexual health education, how much do you know about STI’s and STD’s? As a sexually active person, we are pretty confident the likelihood that you are fully educated in all forms of sexually transmitted disease or infection is pretty slim.

But it isn’t 100% your fault, so that is why we want to spend the time educating you in all the different types and what you can do to prevent them!!
Reality is, some with STI’s and STD’s don’t know they are infected. Obviously, they are passed from person to person through sexual intercourse.

As the World Health Organisation (WHO) has concluded, around one million people get an STI each day.

Blow him away

“Argh – but I don’t know what to do!”
“Penises are kind of scary…”
“What if I hurt him?”

The idea of giving your man mind-blowing pleasure in bed can be daunting. I hear comments like this from women often in my work as a sexologist. They feel nervous, they’re embarrassed to try new things and they feel like they’re holding themselves back in bed.

I get it. I used to feel the same way.
