Dalliance, affair, love, intimacy: how should we approach sex as we age?

As sex lives ebb, the wider world can get more interesting.

The designer and singer, 52, reflects on living next door to Salvador Dali as a child, her brush with death and why she never looks in the mirrorI’m told that I had a difficult childhood. I had a lot of freedom, but there was a lot of drama. It was a childhood of extremes.I was bullied by my history teacher.

From dry pasta to cardboard coffins: where it pays to buy basic

Whether it’s tea or trainers, bread or body lotion, why do we pay more for posh things when the cheap stuff is so much better? Sali Hughes on the joys of being cheap and chicAny Italian knows that unless Nonna made it with her own bare hands this morning, unfilled pasta is best when dried, packaged and stored in a cupboard.

I know how I'll get through this winter: oversized jumpers and triple jacket potatoes | Hadley Freeman

Things that make life better, things that don’t and things that are possibly proof of Covid brain fogFor exciting tax purposes, I’ve been going through old bank statements, because I really know how to carpe diem.
