Nymphomaniac? It’s Like Nothing You’ve Ever Seen Before

On Saturday, I joined thousands of avid cinema fans all across the country for a back-to-back debut screening of the brand new Lars Von Trier film Nymphomaniac. The entire event lasted just under six hours – it included a live introduction from London and a post screening Q&A session – so it was a feature … Continue reading

How To Be A Woman (Who Can’t Stop Thinking About Fucking)

According to measures drawn up by our friendly, neighbourhood Prime Minister, pornography is now outlawed. Yes, that’s right. Pornography is no longer a completely free choice in Great Britain. As of October this year, if you want to indulge in a bit of a skin flick whilst your wife or your husband is out at … Continue reading

Benders, Fags And Raging Queens: Why Gay Is The New Straight

Election Day, remember that? I know it’s hard but cast your mind back. What about the fire-breathing, gay bashing Republican, you don’t remember him? Or the secret, singing Muslim with no birth certificate? Perhaps you haven’t heard about it, it was a very quiet affair after all. Having proved for a second time that race … Continue reading
