Rise in anal sex leads to health problems for women as doctors 'too embarrassed' to talk
NHS surgeons have warned.Two top surgeons have warned that a doctors reluctance to talk over the risks associated with anal sex are leading to women being harmed.Consequences listed in the British Medical Journal include incontinence and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) as well as bodily trauma, pain and bleeding from anal sex encounters.READ MORE: Nurse killed by driver after his window 'all misted up' before horrifying 'bang'But two top surgeons, Tabitha Gana and Lesley Hunt, argue that doctors too embarrassed to talk over the issues are leading to more problems than normal.Writing in the journal, the pair say that "anal intercourse is considered a risky sexual behaviour because of its association with alcohol, drug use and multiple sex partners".The journal also notes that "within popular culture it has moved from the world of pornography to mainstream media" such as the Phoebe-Waller Bridge-written series Fleabag or comedy-drama Sex and the City.Shows such as that, the journal claims, have made anal sex seem "racy and daring".The report also said that women who engage in anal sex are at greater risk than men, with increased rates of "faecal incontinence and anal sphincter injury" reported.The report continued: "Women are at a higher risk of incontinence than men because of their different anatomy and the effects of hormones, pregnancy and childbirth on the pelvic floor."The pain and bleeding women report after anal sex is indicative of trauma, and risks may be increased if anal sex is coerced."The surgeons added, though, that doctors and GPs are less likely to talk about anal sex and that they are subsequently "failing a generation of young women," The Guardian reported.Professor of sexual health and HIV

Sri Lanka’s Gotabaya expected to go to Thailand – sources
(Reuters) – Sri Lanka's ousted president, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, is expected to arrive in Thailand on Thursday, seeking temporary shelter in a second Southeast Asian country after fleeing his island nation last month amid mass protests, two sources said.Rajapaksa fled to Singapore on July 14, via the Maldives, following unprecedented unrest triggered by Sri Lanka's worst economic crisis in seven decades and days after thousands of protesters stormed the president's official residence and office.The retired military officer then resigned from the presidency, becoming the first Sri Lankan president to quit mid-term.The former president is expected to leave Singapore and go to Thailand's capital Bangkok on Thursday, two sources said, asking not to be named.Sri Lanka's foreign ministry did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Thai government spokeswoman Ratchada Thanadirek told Reuters “no comment”.Rajapaksa has not made any public appearances or comments since leaving Sri Lanka, and Singapore's government said this month that the city-state had not accorded him any privileges or immunity. A member of the influential Rajapaksa family, the 73-year-old served in the Sri Lankan military and later as defence secretary.During his time as defence secretary government forces finally defeated Tamil Tiger rebels in 2009 to end the Sri Lankan civil war.

Amanda Todd trial: guilty verdict on five charges for Aydin Coban
@GlobalBC— Rumina Daya (@rdayaglobal) August 6, 2022Justice Martha Devlin provided instructions to the jury before deliberations began, telling them to take “special care” with the statements given by Amanda Todd before her death.Devlin said because Todd died in October 2012 and therefore did not testify or face cross-examination by Aydin Coban’s lawyers, the jury needs to be aware of the limitations of evidence given.Jury members were told to carefully examine the statements Todd gave to her parents, police officers and in her electronic communications when they considered Coban’s verdict. Jury now deliberating in online extortion case of British Columbia teen The trial hinged on the identity of what the Crown has called the “sextortionist” that used 22 online aliases to sexually blackmail Todd over four “episodes” before she took her life in 2012.The Crown’s theory is built on two propositions: that one person operated all of the accounts, and that the one person is Coban.However, defence lawyer Joseph Saulnier told the 12-member jury that evidence from the two drives tells a different story.Facebook records for several of the aliases presented at trial showed the extortionist using operating systems and Internet browsers through 2012 and into late 2013 that were not found on either hard drive, he told the court.“This is a significant hole in Crown’s theory,” he said.
