Fantasy, fetish or freaky?

Fantasy fetish or freaky

A male friend of mine has no interest in looking at a girly magazine photo if the models’ feet (or shoes) are not visible. He doesn’t find it sexy without the feet. And he takes photos of the feet of his female visitors. His wife has learned to live with his foot fetish, as she gets free weekly pedicures out of it.

For me, it’s just weird. But it is actually an acknowledged fetish, and is a commonly known as paraphilia (the term for unusual sexual behaviours). There are many of these unusual behaviours – some researchers claim there are 547 of them!

World’s 8 top selling beers

Wolds best beer brands

As a proud beer drinking nation, we may be surprised to see that some of our favourite SAB brands are not anywhere near the world’s top 8 selling beers.

WhatsApp Doc?

WhatsApp vs MTN and Vodacom

Okay, so apparently Over the Top operators like WhatsApp and Facebook, are robbing our local cellphone operators.

“How’s that?” You ask.

Well, according to MTN and Vodacom, the Apps we love to use most, WhatsApp, Facebook and Skype, are cutting into their profit margins, while leaving cellphone companies to pick up the bill.

After all, they argue, local cellphone companies invest millions in infrastructure and operational fees, while OTT operators just waltz in and offer a service; a service we all want, without having to pay a penny towards keeping things running.

Spice up valentines

It happens to just about every relationship, you both get way too comfortable with each other, and you end up doing the same things week in and week out, and you usually fall into the same routine of sex on a Tuesday at 17:30 – for example. The fire disappears, the passion becomes a thing of the past and although you enjoy spending time together, there is just that little bit of adventure and spontaneity that’s missing. Being in a long term relationship is a comfortable place to find yourself in, however, don’t you wish there was a bit more flare?
