when did you last have sex?

‘Sex was great – then I fell pregnant!’ Stephanie Thayaparan, 22, is single and lives with her two-year-old son in Milton Keynes. Before I fell pregnant I loved sex and had a great sex life. When I found out I was expecting – me and my other half stopped having sex. He didn’t want to hurt the baby. We didn’t live together, either. I wanted a water birth, but that didn’t go to plan. I ended up being in slow labour for four days. When I was 10cm dilated things happened really quickly and my son was born very fast. I’m not a big lady, I’m very petite, only 5ft 2in, and tore when my almost 7lb son arrived. The internal stitches were extremely uncomfortable. I couldn’t sit down easily – never mind think about…

my stalker flew 1,000 miles to find me

‘Rushing home from my job in finance, I flipped open my laptop and started typing. Writing about my new favourite face scrub, I attached a picture, and within minutes, sent my post to the world. Streams of positive comments flooded in. I’d been running a blog on Tumblr since I’d been in college. At first, I would just share my favourite recipes, but when I started to post about different skincare products and beauty treatments, my audience seemed to love it. When I was younger, my grandma Valerie, 70, had taught me the importance of a decent scrub and cleanser and told me to always use a night cream. ‘The positive response was overwhelming’ ‘Make sure you take your make-up off thoroughly,’ she’d say. Now I was teaching others the lessons I’d learnt from…

‘dieting ruined my bum and boobs!’

HEIGHT: 5ft 3in WEIGHT: 8st 6lb DRESS SIZE: 8 Hi, Laura! What’s your favourite way to stay active? I’ve recently got into weight training at David Lloyd in Purley. I’m trying to train four times a week and find it really beneficial, both mentally and physically. How do you stay motivated? I feel that when I exercise I have so much more energy and I want to be a positive role model for my children. What body part do you struggle to keep in shape? My legs. I don’t like my calves and ankles. They’re too big! The only time I did was when I lost lots of weight, but I had no bum or boobs! What do you love about your body? My stomach. I’m not sure why, but I don’t have to work too hard to get a…

film of the week

Portrait of an artist AT ETERNITY’S GATE Out 29 March With his gaunt cheekbones and intense gaze, Willem Dafoe certainly looks the part as Vincent van Gogh in this vivid, impressionistic drama about the tragic artist’s final days. He does an excellent job, too, of capturing van Gogh’s tormented spirit – whether painting sunflowers, a starry night or his battered boots. Dafoe gets fine support from Rupert Friend as Vincent’s loyal brother Theo, Star Wars actor Oscar Isaac as painter Paul Gauguin, and former Bond villain Mads Mikkelsen as a critical priest. NOW RATING ★★★★ Island mystery THE VANISHING Out 29 March Gerard Butler is one of a trio of Scottish lighthouse keepers (including Peter Mullan) at the centre of a mystery on a remote island in the Outer Hebrides. There’s a touch of Scandi noir (director Kristoffer…
