Right person, wrong time?

People say timing is everything. We have all heard that love is about finding the right person at the right time. Sometimes the person is perfect but the timing is wrong. Maybe this is the most hurtful “failure” of romantic relationships because it can leave us feeling empty, frustrated and confused. Why did life put them on my way if it wasn’t the right time? Why are they dating if they aren’t ready? Wait a minute, am I ready? Human

The power of sex.

My mum said something very interesting today. She said that some men only have one way of submitting women that seem strong, confident and independent and that is having sex with them. She said that by having sex with women, some men feel that these strong women are now submissive and they have control over them. It seemed savage to me, was she really saying that some men view sex as a way of humiliating or at least dominating women?

Too intense to date.

A close friend sent me a screenshot of a twitter post this morning. It was about a woman who was telling her experience of once being told by a boy that she was so smart he felt he couldn’t keep it up, with a sad face on. She believed he was doing this expecting her to turn herself down. Instead of doing so, she agreed, and fucked his friend. She believed that when a man tells a woman she is

Fucking the now

Have you ever had sex with somebody and felt guilty afterwards? I have found myself feeling guilty after uncommitted sex consistently for the past 10 years of my life. The only times when I didn’t feel guilty was when the person I was having sex with was my partner, someone that was -supposedly- committed to me, or after having sex with someone that had the intention of engaging in some sort of longer-term relationship. However, when it ended up being

The mistake.

Cheating is probably one of the most famous topics related to romantic relationships, possibly because we can all relate to it. I would say most adults have either cheated or being cheated on. This is a very emotional topic and it usually carries opinions filled with guilt or anger, depending on whether you are the “victim” or the “perpetrator”. However, not much attention has ever been paid to the third party. The “other” one whom the cheater cheats on with.

Fucking the potential.

Sex on a first date is one of those repeatedly talked about topics. Going on a first date doesn’t come without a bit of drama. You have been chatting to someone and you arrange to have a first date. And here it comes. Nervousness, excitement, fear. We have all read plenty of articles on what to do and not to do on a first date. And most of them cover the topic of sex on a first date. The discussion

Víctima, Superviviente y ahora, mujer valiente.

Victim, survivor and now, a brave woman is the title of this blog post. The victim of the “wolf pack case” in Spain has finally spoken. She hasn’t said one word out of anger or hate but expressed an enormous thankfulness to everyone who has helped her along the way. And most importantly, she has encouraged every woman, man or child that has been a victim of rape to speak out. The wolf pack case In the early morning of

It is rape.

In the past month we have seen the media coverage of two of what could be the most famous cases of gang rape in the UK  and Spain in recent times. The verdict in both of them was equally distressing: not guilty of rape. The reality, however, seems very different: It is rape. The wolf pack case In the early morning of the 7th of July 2016 five men went into the lobby of a block of flats with an

No means no. Stop means stop.

In the past few weeks, we have seen an increase in media coverage of sexual violence cases. We can observe how our society is reacting to these cases of abuse and violence towards women in a not surprisingly misogynistic way. The reaction we have had proves we still live in a tremendously patriarchal society in which people continue to put pressure on the victims of sexual violence while trying to justify the perpetrators. A few things have called my attention,
