Sex Survey / 16/02/2021 Sexual assault is never a joke, even in your group chats

Whilst this issue of Concrete is certainly a fun one to create, write and read it is equally important we discuss the negatives around the “sex” and, importantly, our vocal relationship with “sex” or how “sex” is discussed in our society, and particularly in the University Society. Warwick, Derby, Durham, Coventry and Sheffield universities have...

Sex Survey / 16/02/2021 The start of something new, but make it 2020

The first few months of a relationship present a very unique set of challenges to any new couple: learning your partner’s little quirks, meeting each other’s friends and awkward conversations about labels and telling families. In my case, all of this was taking place alongside the onset of a global pandemic, which definitely made things...

Sex Survey / 16/02/2021 Dating apps as a trans woman

Honestly, I think if you’d told me that dating apps would get easier once I came out as transgender, I wouldn’t have believed you. Heck, I doubt I would believe you if you told me now. But it’s true. In what I shall only refer to as The Dark Beforetimes, I had multiple Tinder attempts...

Sex Survey / 16/02/2021 The age-old cliche of loving yourself is annoying, but it’s time to start listening

If I had £1 for every time someone said “you need to love yourself before you love someone else”, I’d never need a job again. Although recently finding out this advice comes from RuPaul, it is a mantra I have had thrown at me from everyone, and it’s quite annoying if it’s all you hear...

Sex Survey / 16/02/2021 Singlehood is sexy: a bold discovery

Single life always seemed to be a transitional state. It was an undesirable in-between. No one wanted to be single – it was just the stop-gap between an old and new relationship. It is like waiting at a bus stop; you hop off the bus and wait a little bit before the next one comes...

Sex Survey / 16/02/2021 Celebrating celibacy

I’ve been a fiend for a very long time. In my year 11 English Language class I wrote something, I think it was about perfumes but I titled it ‘Sex Sells’. From a young age, sex in all its entirety has been an integral part of my life. Maybe it’s because I was molested at...

Sex Survey / 16/02/2021 We’re here, we’re queer, the double standards are clear

There exists a double standard in the treatment of heterosexual relationships and LGBTQ+ relationships. There’s a certain over-sexualisation and obsession with sex from outsiders when it comes to queer relationships that just are not as present with hetero-cis relationships. Talking about sex is good, and incredibly useful to members of the community who might have...
