The LGBTQ Community's Day

If you are part of the LGBTQ community, the 11th of October is a special day for you.

Historically, gay people have been frowned upon at best, or worse, jailed and subjected to hormonal castration or electric shock “treatment”.


How old is homosexuality?*

If we look further back in history we can find examples of gay activity as far back as the Mesolithic period.

The Mesolithic period was from the 96th century to the 50th century BC. There are rock paintings from that period that have been interpreted as two males engaged in intercourse. So being gay is nothing new.

Coming Out Day

Tomorrow, the 11th of October is known as Coming Out Day. It is the day when you should cast aside your fears of rejection by family and friends and be true to yourself. There is a  lot of support available for you, just Google gay helpline Australia.

If your friends are true friends they will think no less of you as a person. And I see no reason why your family should stop loving you for being honest.

How To Romance A Woman

Do You Know How To Romance A Woman?

That is, how to romance a woman, not how to get her into bed.

Being a male, I know that the younger you are, the harder it is to separate romance and sex.

To introduce romance into your relationship is not difficult or expensive. When she goes to the shops, go with her. Hold her hand. Stand in the ladies section while she tries on clothes. Listen to what she says without interrupting. In other word’s, pay attention to her.

If your love has a hobby, give her the space to enjoy it.

Give her a foot massage. No need to buy special oil, you can use olive oil for this.

Be old-fashioned. Let her through the doorway first.

Text a nice message to her out of the blue.

Flowers are always nice on birthdays. But how about a spontaneous gesture not linked to any other event? Grab a small bunch from Coles, Woolies or the petrol station on your way to see her.

If she starts to tell you a story that she has done before, pretend you don’t know it.

Do some dusting around the house, even if you make a crap job of it!

If, and only if you can afford it, book an overnight stay somewhere nice.

So, guys, sure the hot flush of being in bed with someone feels great, but if you truly love her and want her to stay loving you, you must put in the effort.
