Are We Losing Our Human Touch?

To what extent are we becoming distanced from society? Think about it, how many times have been tempted to have a cosy night in? Snuggled up on the sofa with a cup of tea or even a glass of wine about to binge on your favourite TV series or read a good book rather than venturing out in the unpredictable London weather to meet with a friend, that you could just as easily 'Whats App' or call?

I know I've been guilty of this before.

But with artificial intelligence (AI) on the rise, will we soon reach a point where we were go beyond this and in actuality actively choose to interact with an AI that is tailored to our needs and personality traits over a real life human, who if we are honest at times aren't always perfect? Beyond this, are we reaching a point where we will begin to depend on AIs for our intimate relationships and satisfaction too?  This latest post explores how out of touch we as a society have become and the potential consequences of this.

Is Birth Control Sexist?

I remember when I was considering the getting the hormonal implant one of the questions during my initial consultation was 'Were you in any way pressured by your partner into getting this form of contraceptive?' My first thought was 'wtf, seriously?!' but then I thought well, doesn't that really say it all, we really do live in a society where the type of (or lack there of) contraception we as women use is really governed by men.

As women, a lot of pressure to guard against unwanted pregnancies rests on our shoulders, is it fair - no, of course not but is it the reality yes. In this article I discuss the importance of reading around different types of hormonal conception and most importantly ensuring that you make a decision that YOU, yes YOU are happy and comfortable with. This is not a a lash out against hormonal contraceptives, just simply highlighting that they are not to to be something taken lightly because after all our 'body is a temple' right.
