Just Not That Into You: The Friendzone Explained


You’ve no doubt heard the term ‘friendzone’ a lot but in case you haven’t, what you need to know is that in pop culture the friend zone refers to a situation in which one member of a friendship wants a romantic or sexual relationship with the other person but this other person isn’t interested. This puts the rejected person squarely into friendzone, which usually ends up tugging on their heartstrings and causing quite a bit of heartbreak. Friends are very close to each other. They share their lives, their hopes and their dreams with their other person, so it’s very… Continue Reading

When Consent Changes: Sex and Mental Health


  Mental health is an extremely common denominator when it comes to interacting with people, and one in four people will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their life. These kind of disorders can range from depression and anxiety to more psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorders and can vary depending on the person, their chemical balances and their lifestyles. I believe in tearing down the walls when it comes to the stigma that is mental health as I suffer from depression, anxiety and addiction due to the traumatic experience of divorcing my… Continue Reading

Frotting


  Position #18 Frotting In this non-penetrative form of sexual play male partners bring their penises together with the underside touching along their length so that one partner can masturbate both simultaneously. The warmth and contact of a second penis can lead to greater sensation than mutual, hands only masturbation. Give it a go standing up or lying down.   Leiden is celebrating sex one position at a time. Each fortnight we will be celebrating a different sex position in our sexy new illustration series featuring original artwork by Lexi Keelan.

In Defence of ‘The Roster’


  Do you remember that movie starring Zac Efron called Are We Officially Dating? You probably don’t because it was a terrible movie but basically the main part that you need to know is that Zac Efron’s character is a well known playboy who lives his life by ‘The Roster’. Efron explains in the movie that the roster is when he rotates through a series of women throughout the days of the week to maximise on the sex and keep the emotions at arms length. He determines when it is time to cut a girl from the roster when she… Continue Reading

CAT


  Position #17 CAT The playful name of this sex position actually stands for Coital Alignment Technique. It’s a variation of the good old missionary position, designed for increased clitoral stimulation. Now, this one is a bit tricky to explain but as with any sexual encounter, good communication and an open mind is all you need to make it work. Unlike the missionary position, where the penetrative partner’s penis is pointing upwards and the emphasis of movement is on the upward thrust, the CAT position requires the penis to be pointing downwards with the emphasis of movement on the downward… Continue Reading

The Masochist and the Beast


  In the last year or so I have started getting more and more into BDSM. It started off as a simple request for choking — the guy I was with was someone I had been seeing for a while and was a paramedic so I trusted his ability to look after me. But more to the actual reason: I honestly wasn’t in the best of places emotionally and I sought out different ways to feel physical pain as a way to feel something other than the aching of my broken heart. I’m in no way saying that this is… Continue Reading

Legs Up


  Position #16 Legs Up Whether you are engaging in anal or vaginal sex, the legs up sex position will allow you to enjoy deep penetration. In this position the receiving partner lies on their back with the legs raised over their head while the penetrating partner enters them from the front, supporting their legs. The penetrating partner is in control of the angle, depth and speed of penetration while the receiving partner has their arms free to further pleasure themselves or grab onto their lover. This position is perfect when first experimenting with anal play.   Leiden is celebrating… Continue Reading
