Star Signs – August 2018

LEO JUL 23-AUG 22 Your privileged upbringing has made you totally oblivious to the average person and the issues they face, so stop pretending to care.

Bledisloe Blows

The old expression goes that rugby union is “the game they play in heaven”. This is apt, be- cause the game is very nearly dead to me. It currently remains on life support, waiting for me to have a quick glance at the Last Will and Testament before I lean over and pull the plug, […]

Let’s Talk About the Vagina

Why is it that even as adults we struggle so hard with the names of our genitals? Too many parents don’t teach their children the correct names. The penis may be called a willie, weewee, doodle, little noodle, ding-a-ling, etc. Believe it or not there are over 100 adult names for the penis. For girls […]
