Q) I HAVE been seeing my boyfriend for a year. He’s 27, handsome, kind and funny. 

But he has premature ejaculation issues and he’s embarrassed about it. When we do try to have sex, it’s game over before it’s even started. He doesn’t want to talk about it.

 What can I do? Is there anything I can buy to stop it happening or any advice you can give me for him? I really want us to have a good sex life.

 Olivia, Preston

A) An estimated one in three men experience premature ejaculation at some point. They often feel inadequate as a result.

 Premature ejaculation is defined as when a male ejaculates too quickly during sex. But that is subjective. The average time for intercourse in the UK is five to six minutes, so for many men, what they perceive as premature is actually normal. 

For those men who still feel they have a problem, last even less time, or cannot achieve penetration at all, many therapies and treatments are available. 

The first thing to do is to try to talk to your partner about it. By working together, almost all treatments are more successful. Non-medical therapies include slowing down or stopping during sex, or taking a break from penetration.

When masturbating, the “squeeze” technique (where you reach near climax then squeeze the end of the penis to prevent ejaculation), can help retrain your orgasmic processes. 

If this fails, there are medical therapies available including topical gels, creams and tablets. 

 Q) I AM a 35-year-old travel consultant and one of my big toes is enormous. I dropped a jar of pickled eggs on it during lockdown and I guessed it was broken, but I didn’t want to go to A&E during Covid.

More than two years later, it’s still swollen and painful. It looks awful. I’m due to go on holiday in August. Any suggestions?

A) Missed breaks or fractures in toes and fingers are relatively common.

Sometimes it can be more complicated than a simple fracture and without appropriate specialist input, may fail to heal properly.

This can result in chronic pain, swelling and arthritis that can last for many years.

After two years, the only way to know what damage has been done is to get an X-ray and see if there is a fracture that has failed to heal.

 If this is the case, you may require an operation to pin the bits of broken bone back in place, or would at least benefit from seeing an orthopaedic surgeon (bone doctor) to look at options.

Supporting Ukraine Through Purchasing Power: The Initiatives Keeping the Country’s Economy Afloat 0 173

Amidst the Russian invasion, Ukrainian creatives are launching initiatives to keep the country’s economy going by harnessing consumer power. Spend With Ukraine is one such online resource that connects consumers to Ukraine-based businesses across various industries, while the Ukrainian Emergency Art Fund allows for donations to support artists. Co-founder of Spend With Ukraine, Andrey Klen, emphasizes the importance of supporting the Ukrainian economy through purchasing decisions. He states, “Armies win battles, but economies win wars.”

Ukrainian brands are still operating and many are donating a portion of their sales to different needs to support the country. To sustain interest in supporting Ukraine through spending, increasing the visibility of these initiatives is key. As Klen says, “We want it to blow out.” These efforts not only help Ukrainian creatives but also support existing industries and provide a sense of normality in these difficult times.

Ensuring Safety and Consent in the Adult Film Industry: A Vital Discussion 0 259

One topic that may be of interest to readers in the adult film industry is the topic of workplace safety and consent.

The adult film industry, like any other industry, has a responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of its workers. This includes providing a safe working environment, protecting workers from physical and emotional harm, and ensuring that all acts are consensual. However, the nature of the adult film industry can make it difficult to ensure that these standards are met. Actors and actresses may feel pressure to perform acts that they are not comfortable with, and there have been instances of abuse and exploitation in the industry.

To address these issues, it is essential for the industry to have clear guidelines and policies in place to protect the rights and safety of workers. This includes providing education and resources for performers, implementing strict consent protocols, and holding producers and directors accountable for ensuring a safe working environment.

Another important aspect of this topic is the importance of consent in adult film. Consent is a crucial aspect of any sexual encounter and must be obtained freely, enthusiastically, and without coercion. In the adult film industry, where performers are engaging in sexual acts on camera, it is especially important that consent is explicitly obtained and respected. This can be achieved through the use of consent forms and communication between performers before and during filming.

By discussing these topics, the industry can work towards creating a safer and more respectful environment for all performers and ensure that the rights and well-being of workers are protected.
