My life in sex: I'm taking testosterone blockers - and my sex life is over

My life in sex: I'm taking testosterone blockers - and my sex life is over

‘My inner Sid James has been replaced by a benign old gentleman’Last modified on Sat 19 Sep 2020 03.46 EDTIn January, I was diagnosed with incurable prostate cancer. On the same day, I started a testosterone blocker. The doctors warned me that this meant my sex life was over.That night I looked at the first pill, ululating with grief over what I was about to lose. Nine months later, I can no longer remember what all the fuss was about. I boasted to my woke teenager that I am now on the list – LGBTQIA. “Which one are you?” she asked, sceptically. “A,” I replied; for asexual.I now find sex...

My life in sex: ‘I both long for romance and dread it’

My life in sex: ‘I both long for romance and dread it’

The 46-year-old virginLast modified on Fri 2 Oct 2020 16.39 EDTI’ve been on a few dates (they were uncomfortable) but they were more than 20 years ago. In the years since, nobody has asked me, and my fear has grown.I sought help from a therapist 15 years ago, but she made things worse by calling me childish, and telling me that I couldn’t be helped.Since then, I’ve been too ashamed to admit to anyone that I’m a virgin. How could they understand a woman who can’t find a man to want her? I’m not attractive, and men have never been interested in me. Now that I’m older, they don’t even see me...

I’m Rich Now. It’s Weird.

I’m Rich Now. It’s Weird.

Things you buy through our links may earn New York a commission.Since July 2020, nearly 750 companies have gone public, raising more than $200 billion and minting thousands of new paper millionaires. Amid the frenzy, one millennial tech worker on the verge of unexpected wealth shared what was going through her mind.When I joined my company, I theoretically knew there were only two exit paths — an acquisition or an IPO. And a third, where the company implodes, like WeWork, but you’re hoping for one of the first two. I didn’t really think about it when I signed on. I thought that I’d make a...

Hong Kong's Swift Descent Into Chinese Oppression Should Alarm Us All

Hong Kong's Swift Descent Into Chinese Oppression Should Alarm Us All

ShareHong Kong’s descent started in 1997 when the Chinese Communist Party took over the city from the British government. Since then, for more than two decades, Hongkongers have witnessed the CCP’s gradual erosion of their freedoms. The pandemic presented the CCP a perfect opportunity to accelerate its control of the city and its 7.5 million residents.Last summer, Beijing imposed a draconian  on Hong Kong, bypassing Hong Kong’s local legislature. Dennis Kwok, a pro-democracy legislator in Hong Kong, said Beijing’s action “basically means the end of ‘One Country, Two Systems.'” Hong...

Opinion | To Counter China’s Rise, the U.S. Should Focus on Xi

Opinion | To Counter China’s Rise, the U.S. Should Focus on Xi

A proposal for a full reboot of American strategy toward China.Ju Peng/Xinhua via APIn 1946, the American diplomat George Kennan wrote a lengthy cable to Washington—since dubbed the “Long Telegram”—laying out the basis for the next several decades of U.S. policy toward the Soviet Union. He published his work as an article under the simple pseudonym “X.” In that spirit, a former senior government official with deep expertise and experience dealing with China has published with the Atlantic Council a bold and ambitious new U.S. strategy toward its next great global rival. It is similarly...

Confessions of the secret suburban Trump moms: California

Confessions of the secret suburban Trump moms: California

Suburban women are understood to be one of the most crucial demographic groups in the presidential election on November 3. Many pollsters currently predict that President Donald Trump will lose due to his unpopularity with that category of voters. But have the Democrats really reclaimed the suburbs? Or are there more likely Republican voters than the polls suggest? The Spectator tracked down a series of so-called ‘closet Trump’ voters, women from the suburbs who would never publicly voice their support for the President for fear of recrimination in their social circles. These...

Coaches Accuse SAT Of Racism So They Can Recruit Dumb Jocks

Coaches Accuse SAT Of Racism So They Can Recruit Dumb Jocks

ShareA recently released by The National Association of Basketball Coaches requests the NCAA remove an eligibility requirement to submit SAT or ACT scores. In the proposal, put forth by the Committee on Racial Reconciliation, the NABC decries the two tests as wicked forces of institutional racism that should be “jettisoned for that reason alone.” The committee was formed last month, and the proposal shows it.Their argument runs like this: the SAT was created in 1926 by the eugenicist Carl Brigham. Brigham intended the test to demonstrate the racial superiority of white blood. His project,...

Freedom-Loving Hong Kongers, 'Be Water' Now Means Fleeing

Freedom-Loving Hong Kongers, 'Be Water' Now Means Fleeing

ShareDear Hong Kong residents: the city you love, the place you call home — where you ran successful businesses, raised families, shared laughter with friends, enjoyed unbelievably delicious food, cheered for freedom, and mourned for students who perished in Tiananmen Square — has changed beyond recognition. Darkness descended on to the city on midnight of June 30, 2020, as the new went into effect. Drafted by Beijing in May, the NSL was rubber-stamped by the National People’s Congress Standing Committee by June. The 7.5 million Hong Kongers had no say in the matter.Hong Kongers, and the...
