New Year, New You with Kegel8

New Year, New You with Kegel8

New Year is a time for resolutions and new starts, and if your resolution for 2013 is to lose weight, get healthier or get fitter, you should start from the inside out by strengthening your pelvic floor with Kegel8. There's no point toning and training the outside of your body if the inside is weak and sagging, so make Kegel8 exercises a part of your weekly exercise regime and you will notice a huge difference - no more laughter leaks, better intimate sensation and - did you know - a tighter pelvic floor can help to give you a flatter tummy too!

Sexual Abuse - The Physical Scars Last a Lifetime

In 1976 I was 15 and Jimmy Savile came to our school.

I remember it well. Our sewing teacher had made a 'Jim'll Fix It' puppet, cookery teachers baked celebration Union Jack cakes and buns and the entire school rolled out the red carpet.
