Spectacular Big Tings - Dating and Fatness

In this episode Lala is joined by fat rights activist Danica Marjanovic (@danica_marjanovic) and Life Coach Kayleigh Dixon (@kdlifecoach) to discuss fatness and dating. We discuss questions from followers including: What is fat? Thickness is a trend but where is the line? Is the word fat OK or offensive? Is it wrong to utilise angles and lighting to hide your weight on dating apps? How do you differentiate between being someone’s type and being fetishized? The worry that they have underestimated your size in photos and how they will react in person and feeling the need to alert them to the fact that you are fat before meeting? Is it fatphobic to not find fat people attractive? How do I get rid of the feeling that I am not thin enough to be attractive to men? I internalise thoughts like ‘I can start dating again when I’ve lost a bit of weight’ Do I need to decrease my standards after gaining 15kg? Handsome men feel out of my league now. Men are definitely less interested in me now that I am larger. Lack of confidence during sex due to weight. Especially being on top.

I’m 28 and I have never had a relationship, all my friends are coupled up and buying houses and I find it impossible to think that it’s my fault for not attracting a partner. The men I like seem to all be prone to ghosting and breadcrumbing. What can I do? Is cancel culture impacting on your comedy? Do you feel you have to censor yourself now? Can professionals like nurses and teachers use party drugs or weed recreationally and still be good at their jobs? My boyfriend has slept with a lot of people – how do I not feel insecure about my body and my sex skills with him?

Is there anything that a person could do to allay those fears when starting a relationship with a person with a disability? How do you date as a single mum?

I am absolutely broke, I was furloughed and then made redundant. I am considering starting an Only Fans but I am nervous about the potential repercussions. Would you do it if you had no other choice?

I feel that I am going to be single forever because I won't tolerate shitty male behaviour - do you two feel the same? How do you know if a man will be a good dad? How do you adjust to parenting alone? How do you get over a situationship of over a year and gain the courage to not go back to it? My thoughts are horrible and I feel horrible because they seem bigger than me, I don't know what to do? Mental health for working class people - if people can't afford expensive therapists due to poverty what can they do to help themselves? Am I disrespecting myself by staying with a guy who cheated?

Podcast 25 - Child Sexual Exploitation and Abuse

For this episode Lala was joined Robin and Claire, two ex child abuse investigation detectives who are experts in the field of child safeguarding to discuss child sexual exploitation and sexual abuse. Robin Watts is a specialist trainer and you can hire him to deliver training to your organisation www.rawtrainingltd.com This podcast will give you the tools to understand how to protect your own children and children around you. I just listened back to it and I thought that there were a few bits that we missed out so I wanted to add them here.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ If you suspect that a child has been the victim of sexual abuse do not ask leading questions. If it's proven that you asked leading questions it can impact the outcome in court. So don't ask "Did Daddy touch you?" ask "Can you tell me what happened with Daddy?"⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Have professional curiosity. If your gut tells you that something is wrong then hang on to that. Keep that child on your radar. Talk to other professionals in that child's life. Try to connect the dots. If a child is acting out and behaving in ways that make you dislike them then make an even bigger commitment to show up for that child. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Sometimes victims become abusers, but that doesn't take away from their abuse. For example, sometimes gangs do 'line ups' where they will have one girl in a room who has to have sex with a line of boys. We might look at all of those boys as abusers, but a 13 year old boy who is forced to lose his 'virginity' in this way in a room full of his friends is also experiencing trauma. Sometimes female victims of CSE recruit friends for abuse, again, we need to see the bigger picture. They are all victims. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ When talking to victims of CSE we need to be careful about the language we use about the perpetrator. Calling him a disgusting piece of shit and saying he doesn't love you might be true, but the child has been groomed and feels loved. It might make them feel more defensive and less likely to listen. If you are a health care professional look for signs such as frequent hospital attendances. Ensure that you speak to the patient alone, if their boyfriend/girlfriend/alleged relative is always with them, then find a way to see them alone. If you need to report then contact the police or the children's service based in the area where the child lives. Google the child's local authority. Even if you don't have a lot of evidence it is still worth having a chat with a social worker. You can report anonymously to NSPCC too.

Podcast 24 - LGBTQ+ Dating and Myth Busting - with Kenny Ethan Jones and Jamie Windust

In this episode Lala is joined by magazine editor, model and non-binary activist Jamie Windust and trans activist and model Kenny Ethan jones. In this podcast we answer question's sent in by followers around LGBTQ+ dating and relationship issues including: I really want to understand the difference between non-binary and gender neutral and how to refer to non-binary people in language that isn’t genderised. My gay friend doesn’t date bi-sexual people but he was offended when I said that I wouldn’t want to date a bisexual man, can we discuss this? How do you navigate being out and proud with relationships when living in a ghetto area where hate crime is more likely? How can I support my best friend who has transitioned but who has changed their personality so much that I barely recognise their personality and I don’t get them anymore. They are not the person I made friends with but I feel like if I raise it it’ll be seen as being related to their transition? Is it harder for someone who has had gender reassignment surgery to orgasm? Why do LGBTQ relationships move so much faster than cis het relationships? Do you think it’s essential to disclose that you are trans to people who you are dating? My son is in secondary school and he has come out to me as gay, I want to encourage him to live his best proud life but I also don’t want him to become a target for bullying. Is it oppressive if I suggest that he doesn’t tell his school friends yet?

We Can't Consent To This - Trigger warning for discussion of rape and murder

In this podcast Lala is joined by Eve from the We Can't Consent To This campaign @wecantconsentto. They are campaigning for the law to be changed so that the rough sex defence can no longer be used to get lighter sentences when women are murdered and seriously harmed. They are also campaigning for choking. spitting and hurting women during sex to not be normalised in popular culture. This podcast includes graphic discussion about rough sex, murder and rape, but we also hope that it is an empowering conversation that will help women to feel more confident about expressing their needs in the bedroom and that will also inspire listeners to fight for change.

Podcast 19 - A Workplace Harassment Special with specialist Lawyer Deeba syed

In this episode Lala is joined by sexual harassment lawyer Deeba Syed from The Rights Of Women to discuss sexual harassment in the workplace. We answer questions from followers including: Can you report bullying/non-sexual harassment years after you have left the job? My boss has made several comments about me probably getting pregnant in the future during meetings. I feel uncomfortable with this. Do I have the right to be? My senior boss at work said that my Insta posts were too saucy and that men will start assuming that on my days off I get up to a certain kind of thing and that I should avoid bikini pics . What could I have done in this situation? I didn’t report it as I was scared of repercussions. What can you do if it’s a co-worker but if it’s outside of work? What do you do if there is no HR department at work? One guy from work gets handsy (arm around back or hand on knee) with females at the Christmas party every year. Everyone knows about it and even warn newer female employees to watch out for him but no one will do a single thing to stop him or even speak on his behaviour. He has never touched me or actually assaulted anyone else but is there anything I can do to make it stop? Is it sexual harassment if someone asks you out at work? My manager is a narcissist and now someone is leaving because of him. How do I deal with him? What is your advice to people who don’t think that they will be believed? I work in a male dominated environment – they have never been directly nasty with me but I hear the way that they speak about other women. They will talk about women they have slept with in really nasty ways and they often make sexualised comments about female customers. Do I have the right to say something even if it’s not directed at me? How do you deal with little ‘banter’ comments. For example – my manager spilt a bit of water on my foot and said ‘Sorry did I get you wet?” I knew what he meant but I know that if I had complained he would have been able to justify it because technically he did get me wet. How do we deal with things like that?

Podcast 13 - Lala Explains with @blessedtasha and @Iamnicoladady An 'Inspirational Women' Special

In this episode Lala is joined by two women who inspire her. Fitness guru Natasha Knight and charity founder and author Nicola Dad, both who have overcome all the madness that life has thrown at them to be bad ass inspirational women. In this episode we answer questions from followers including: How can you stop yourself from comparing yourself to your exes new girlfriend when she’s perfect? Can you love two men at the same time? Both completely different qualities. :) I am a 34 year old single woman and I haven’t had much experience. I can’t seem to find the confidence to just go for it. Help! Why are men so intimidated by strong successful women? What is life like after cancer? How do you stay motivated to go to the gym regularly when you are a lazy person? Is it a bad sign if a guy brings you to his Mum’s house for the first time and they both expect you to clean? He suggested several times that I clean his room. I would love some advice on overcoming low self-esteem in terms of body image. I have some permenant scarring on my chest and back and I don’t ever feel confident wearing strappy tops and it makes it hard to be intimate with someone new. I don’t know how to deal with my boyfriend. He is so jealous of my past and can’t deal with the fact that I’ve even had one. Long story short. I left photos on social media of my ex and he asked me to delete them a few times. But he’s a hypocrite because he’s been liking facebook pictures of people he’s slept with and he’s slept with a lot of people! I don’t even care about his past but his paranoia about mine is making me suspicious. He can’t seem to get his head around the fact that I don’t want my my exes back. He’s been going to counselling because he reacts really badly to things when it comes to my ex. He shuts me out – can be up to a week and says really nasty things which then cause me to feel insecure and worried that he might not want me. Help! I’m in recovery from alcohol addiction – I’m currently 8 months sober. On dates I always have to explain why I don’t drink which always ends up with me rabbling on and giving way too much detail on my recovery. When people say ‘oh one won’t hurt’ I feel like screaming and it puts me off them. What is the right amount to share? Should I really tell a date why I don’t drink? My friend is quite overweight and she constantly has a very bad odour down there! Other friends that have known her longer than me say that she has smelt like that since school. Whyyy! It’s honestly so bad. I want to help her and tell her but I feel awful. How do I get the message

In this episode Lala is joined by @karen_hobbs from @eveappeal Gynae Cancer Charity for a chat about gynae cancers, cervical screening (smear tests), sex, vaginas, and vulvas as well as answering questions sent in by followers including: If you have had abnormal cells removed does it just prolong getting cervical cancer or do your chances go back to that of someone without HPV? What is the process of the smear? What can you do if you find vaginal examinations traumatic? What is HPV? My smear test is due next year but I will be living in Abu Dhabi. I have previously had abnormal cells but I don’t know the system over there or whether I trust it completely. Can I get an early test in the UK for this reason? Can you please talk about pages that promote Yoni detox for purging the vagina? Do they work? Do we need to cleanse internally? Can your inner lips stretch over time, for example if you pull them to shave or dry yourself? Is there really a way to tighten the vagina – do exercises really work? My cousin has had vulva cancer 3 times, what are the chances of me getting it? My clit is really small and hidden/buried so I find it really hard to have a clitoral orgasm. Any advice? Does porn give us an unrealistic view of vulvas?

I need to seek help before my mental health gets worse, but how can you deal with unsupportive relatives and friends? It’s really putting me off getting help What can I do to help my best friend? There’s days when she won’t speak or let me see her as she doesn’t want to see anyone. I feel like as her best friend I should be doing more but I don’t know what to say. I lost my Dad to suicide and I have a real fear of getting close to a man just in case they just leave in an instant. I have been single for 6 years, I just can’t bear the thought of getting close to someone for them to just leave. I recently came out of a short relationship with a guy with mental health issues (depression/anxiety)Unfortunately he ended things as he started to get anxious about the relationship What wold be your advice for dealing with mental health issues in a relationship and how to respect someone’s boundaries when starting something with someone with a history of mental ill health? I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. I am finding it very hard to get the correct help as I work full time but it affects my life massively. Any suggestions on self-help or is seeing a therapist my only way to cure this horrible disorder? How can you tell the difference between normal pain/heart-ache after a break up and real depression? How do you stop MH issues and traumas impacting on dating? Can being neglected and abused as a child make you treat your girlfriends badly even if you are in love? I have children and a professional career, I am in a dark place but I don’t want to seek professional help in case a referral is made to social services or my employers find out and think I am not capable of doing my job. What options do I have? What do you do when your anxiety has crippled you for months but you still have bills to pay and deadlines to meet? Is self-medicating with cannabis going to make things worse?

Podcast 9 - Lala Explains with Erin Budina and Sam Supplier

This week Lala is joined by @erin_budina and DJ @samsupplier to answer questions sent in by followers including: • What do men really want for Valentine’s Day? • Why do women throw themselves at DJs? My DJ boyfriend says that I can trust him but I don’t trust the women • I need help with my relationship. I have been with my fiancé for 3 years and he cheated on me 2 years ago. He continues to message his ex even though she has moved on and is happy. We have amazing sex and I feel like that is the only reason we’re together. What do I do?! • My long term partner often casually refers to women as slags / dirty slags and tarts. It is really putting me off him and making me lose respect for him. Are these differences in outlook deal breakers? Will it just end up driving us apart? • What do you do if your man won’t have sex with you? It kills my confidence like you wouldn’t believe. I have tried everything, from sexy lingerie to pretending I don’t care. We’ve been together for 14 months and I am going mad with frustration • I started talking to a guy on tinder, got on really well. After 48 hours of talking I decided I had to meet him and things went really well. The sex was intense and passionate and we told each other we loved each other. It feels 100% right. But can you literally fall in love with someone after 7 days of messages and calls and less than 48 hours in their actual company!? •What is the best way to deal with slut shaming on how you dress or act? • Would you stay friends with someone who was sleeping with a married man?

We are joined by Sian Hawkins, Head of Campaigns and Public Affairs at Women’s Aid and Alex, a support worker on the National Domestic Violence Helpline which the charity runs in partnership with Refuge. Just to clarify, the charity does not endorse any products featured on this podcast or the podcast’s sponsors. In this episode we discuss Lala's followers topics including: What are the red flags for an abuser? How do you move on from someone who won't let you go? I am struggling with different information from social services and housing about what my rights are? My partner hurts me but I am dependent on him financially and emotionally. Do perpetrators programmes work? My friend is in a violent relationship, how can I make her leave him? My violent ex has a new girlfriend - should I warn her about him? I miss my abuser even though things were awful when I was with him. How do I handle mutual friends and family who have been charmed by the abuser and victim blame? Can an abuser change without professional help? My ex always put me down, how can I stop his words ringing through my head now I'm dating again? How do you help children who have witnessed DV? I have had 3 abusive partners - how do I break the cycle? What legal support is available? Why do survivors stay for so long? How can you ever trust anyone again after an abusive relationship? If a guy is really jealous and wants to control your every move is that domestic violence? Is it abuse if it is physical but non-serious like slapping, pushing, grabbing etc? Is it normal to suffer from PTSD after an abusive relationship? I am scared to leave my abusive partner because he has threatened to commit suicide if I do. And much more!!

Podcast 7 - Lala Explains with Cassandra Maria and Tazer Black

This week Lala is joined by comedian and presenter Cassandra Maria and 3 shots of Tequila podcaster and promoter Tazer Black to answer questions sent in by followers including: Do you think we should stop listening to R Kelly’s music because of his behaviour? Should a man always pay on the first date and if he doesn’t does that mean he’s not interested? I’ve been seeing a guy for a few weeks now, he’s REALLY nice, he’s literally everything I’m looking for in a man, the nicest guy I’ve ever met. He told me the other day that he’s not ready for a relationship right now but wants to continue seeing me and getting to know me and hopes it will blossom into a relationship in the future. I’m confused, do you think I should keep seeing him? How can you tell a man that he doesn’t make you cum without hurting his feelings? Where are all the men? Where is a good place to meet single men outside of dating apps? My boyfriend wanks every morning while I’m in bed, even after sex the night before. Is this normal? I went on a date with a guy, it went well. We spoke again after the date about meeting up and he said ‘It’s my turn to buy the round next time” and now he just won’t reply. Why is he doing this? Are there any men out there who don’t get violent when they are stressed? This podcast is brought to you in collaboration with www.thesway.co.uk themed pleasure packages.
