Thai-Style “Safe Sex”

I have noticed that many adult Thais living in Bangkok are sexually active, which is good. Though the level of knowledge about sexual health or safer sex is debatable.   Condoms and most contraceptives are available at local pharmacy and convenient stores, such as 7-11 but I have yet to see the femidom (Female Condom). So accessibility is not a concern for those who can afford the off-the-rack condoms and warm-me-down lubricants in an imaginative dildo-like container. The working class, the self-employed man who operates the…

Unearthly beauty of a woman

What is natural beauty? What makes women stand above those mired in civilised fashion-worship? Certainly beauty is the ability to bend the cosmos to serve your will, but even a half-baked carpenter can force wood to serve her needs. Certainly natural beauty is the power to do what others cannot but any coffee-licking rich brat in a thin bright dress can do more than this. It is the command of the ineffable, of the simplicity and of the ingredients of sensuality — the command of…

Men just want to have fun? Or just want to have sex?

Age. That single factor sometimes determine whether you are into sex. Many of us have read ten or more articles about sex, sexuality, sexual health, and some nonsense-of-a-sexual-health-expert of how to psychoanalyze yourself and your sex partner.  How often do you read about sex or watch porn to learn more about the various positions for  intercourse? Yes we all know men are different than women, and I know a few people who would refuse to see and associate the different character traits of gender before, during and…

You have my attention, dear. I suggest you do not waste my time

Finally. So you are familiar with the rules of engagement. Satisfied with your knowledge about your lover. OK. Good for you, I guess, though I don’t believe you should pat yourself on the back, or even giggle in victory. Yes, we are still on the topic of relationships. At first glance, you and your lover are comfortable with each other, snuggling close, trading tender kisses, after that unavoidable, highly-anticipated argument. I am sure you are taking an extra step to make promises that such a…

How relationships hide the dark whispers of your inner-self

The heart knows many dark secrets of life, and whispers tempting promises to the soul. A human being spends time listening or ignoring the whispering. In a relationship, the person succumbs to the distraction of affection and attention, caring little or ignoring the whispers. The complexity of a relationship does mute the inner-struggle and offers a brief solitude from the nagging heart. At times, a relationship is merely an opportunity, and an excuse, for such luxury of distractions, and silence. More like running away from…

Do Men Care About Violence Against Women

Teen Girl Forced to Give Cop Oral Sex — What the Sick Abuse of Authority Says About Our Rape Culture The reality is that there are many bad fuckers out there. Violence against women does not fit any generic pattern. It can affect anyone and everyone. Regardless of the age, nationality, or sexuality of the woman. We have seen an increase…

Rights of Women & Children in ASEAN

“The ASEAN Leaders inaugurated the ASEAN Commission on the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Women and Children (ACWC) on 07 April 2010 in Hanoi, Vietnam. “The establishment of the ACWC represents the common will of the ASEAN Leaders enshrined in the Vientiane Action Programme in 2004 and the roadmap for the ASEAN Community for 2009-2015,” said Vietnam PM Nguyen Tan Dung in a speech delivered at the inauguration. He added that the creation of the ACWC will contribute greatly to the empowerment and…

Fucking ourselves with the Kama Sutra

Weeks ago, I was busy indulging myself with four women, over strong black coffee, on the smashing topic of Kama Sutra, 9-inch strap-on dildos, and sex positions. Oh yes, we spoke as articulately as possible, keeping checks on the occasional rasping breath, crooked sly smiles, and dazed eyes imagining something exotic as a double penetration mind-fucks. All in all, the discussion was completely liberating, coupled with more sighs and licking of dry lips.
