Only Four Weeks Left

Only Four Weeks Left For Kiws To Take Part In The Durex Global Sex Survey

The Durex Global Sex Survey will only be online until 19 July so Kiwis wanting to be a part of the world's largest study of sexual attitudes and behaviour should start talking about sex now on

Durex NZ Manager, Victoria Potter, says that more Kiwis need to fill in the online survey so that New Zealand can keep up its solid record of being the trans-Tasman leaders when it comes to sex.

"Last year we proved that Kiwis were an amorous bunch and increased trans-Tasman rivalry by beating the Australians in the sex stakes," says Ms Potter. "We want as many as possible to take part in this year's sex survey so we can prove that again."

There is now an added bonus for Kiwis to go online and take part in the sex survey, as Durex has recently revamped its website. The new website includes more information about how to have better sex, information on sexual health, and other fun elements such as games and the 'position of the month'.

All Kiwi respondents to the survey go in the draw to win an Apple iPod mini. The results of the Durex Global Sex Survey will be released in October this year.

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940. More>>

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
