Review: Dame Kip and Pom

Sometimes companies surprise you. When hit the scene with their zealously-crowdfunded initial effort, the "hands-free" labia-clinging Eva, I pegged them as a company that would focus more on (heterosexual) fantasy than consumer reality. "You know it's bad when abstinence starts to sound appealing," I famously stated in my review, going for the jugular after the toy fell off my vulva for the millionth time. I figured I'd burned that bridge and would likely never work with Dame again. Then c...

Working from home made my descent into decrepitude harder to avoid | Elizabeth Quinn

Confronted by my reflection at every turn, I armed myself with expensive beauty productsI have a theory – largely untested – that everyone is mentally “stuck” at a certain age: the one that best reflects their outlook. Mine is 17. At my core, I see myself as youthful, enthusiastic and not yet tainted by the bitterness of experience. I’m optimistic and forward-looking. A woman in my prime.But increasingly, the face and form I see reflected back in the mirror are none of those things. At first I b...

Desperation Loyalty

Desperation loyalty is remaining loyal to a group or identity based on neediness or clinginess, often in violation more important values. It is a place of stuckness that elevates loyalty to others above the commitment to grow. It’s relatively easy to spot this in other people. It’s harder to spot this in ourselves. If you pursue a strong and centered path of personal growth for many years, you will outgrow many friends and social groups along the way. That’s a normal part of a life of grow...

I feel bullied and hopeless. How can I find happiness? | Dear Mariella

Go back to therapy and use the skills to better understand yourself and combat self loathing, says Mariella FrostrupThe dilemma I am a woman in my 30s. On paper I am bright – an Oxford graduate with a slew of prestigious qualifications, extracurricular achievements and a fairly successful career. The reality is I just feel pathetic, ignorant and gormless. I’ve got to where I am because I’m adept at analysing and memorising information, while clearly lacking other types of intelligence.

Sunday Firesides: Don’t Let It Petrify

As you grow older, your body grows stiffer. It gets harder to bend, to stretch, to contort yourself into “unusual” positions — unusual in that they involve something beyond sitting, standing, and reaching for the Special K from the cabinet. Make such a move and you can almost hear the crumbling of an invisible patina of stone which had begun encasing your limbs. Your mind and personal habits grow stiffer with age as well. Beliefs harden, becoming impenetrable to new information and perspecti...
