Sex Is Not an Olympic Sport

Why is it that we are shown so many unrealistic sex scenes in movies we see these days? Couples look into each other’s eyes, become aroused without foreplay, and within three minutes have simultaneous mind-blowing orgasms – this is a fantasy that in real life is totally implausible. So when we see great sex on […]

A Few Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Beaujolais

If you know of Beaujolais, you might think of the floral labels of Georges Dubœuf in the rosé fridge at your local bottle-o. This may give the impression that they’re light, lively wines, not to be taken too seriously. Some are, but there are also some serious drops from the region. Beaujolais grapes The main […]

QTips #9 – Four of the Best Juices and Smoothies in the East

Chop it. Blend it. Pour it. Drink it. If Daft Punk were helmet-wearing robo-selectors from Bondi instead of France that might’ve been the way ‘Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger’ turned out. Maybe even ‘Technologic’, too. Cold-pressed juices, smoothies and all things whizzed are all the rage right now. They contain strange and beneficial things, like chia […]

Video of the Week – You Lose

Respect Your Elders

When you think of the ocean you might think of a dark, ruthless world where hunt or be hunted is the only law. Animals living under the constant threat of being gobbled up should they dare reveal themselves by poking a fin out from their safe place. Creatures living fast, dying young. There’s no doubt […]

Spring is Just Around the Corner

It’s quite amazing how quickly the days get longer. With our heads buried in work, study or preparing family dinners, the gradual day-to-day crawl can pass us by and all of a sudden it’s almost spring and time for pre-work swims or post-work runs. With everything that’s going on in the big bad world, living […]

The Ant and the Grasshopper

Everything I was taught as a child must’ve been completely wrong. Save your pennies, they said. Look after those and the pounds will look after themselves, they promised. I was read Aesop’s The Ant and the Grasshopper and encouraged to knuckle down, work hard and plan for the future. I became an ant. But maybe […]
