In a world where sex is as common as brushing your teeth in the morning and one-night stands are the main conversations in your group of friends, how do you cope with the inability to have sexual intercourse? Muscle contractions, constant pain and frustration — this is a summary of vaginismus. According to NHS, the psychosomatic condition occurs when “the vagina suddenly tightens up just as you try to insert something into it”. In other words, vaginismus is the tightening of the muscles located in the pelvic floor, making it impossible for any type of penetration. There are multiple causes of this psychological disorder.

"It’s not you, it’s me", is one of the most used break up lines ever. You probably know that, but what you don't know is that break up season has officially begun.

Dating apps seem to have taken the world by storm, gaining popularity for simplifying the once daunting task of socialising. But before you throw caution to the wind in the hopes that the love of your life awaits you in cyberspace, you should know that online dating is two-faced. Thanks to innovation and the constantly evolving features of electronic devices, we could say that romance nowadays is dead. Most people rely on online dating apps like Tinder, Match or Cupid, to find anywhere between their “desired soulmate” to a simple “summer fling”. Swiping right might feel like the first step to a thrilling and new romance but it could actually be the beginning of a troublesome experience. Before the invention of smartphones, singles went out to clubs, restaurants or bars, in the h
