I Won’t Go Natural

Over the past few years, the natural hair movement has dominated quite a bit. I am here for it. As ever, my little country, Jamaica has been pushing boundaries on the international stage regarding what’s acceptable as beautiful hair. I am here for it! A few shining examples are the recent Miss Jamaica Universe, Davina…

Jamaica’s Perception of Discipline

How can we sit down and JUSTIFY a parent becoming so engulfed in rage, that we are actually placing ‘buts’ in the response to a mother wielding a MACHETE with no regard for the life of the child she believes she is disciplining. 

Emotionally Taxing Friendships 

 I had to separate myself from a person and situation that I believed to be more taxing than I would ever be able to tolerate or endure…

Single Til Married?

I was listening to a podcast and the topic of discussion was centred around a young woman who said that she was single until she was married due to the fact that men are not trustworthy and may be doing this, that, that and the third. This in and of itself is not an uncommon…

Do I Believe In Gender Roles & Feminism?

The new age definition of feminism seems to appropriate that women believe and behave in a manner that portrays they are superior to men. I, myself, have zero interest in that. I agree with textbook feminism, that we are equals, neither being more superior. By this view, I neglect to identify as a feminist. But…

Aphrodisiac; Chocolate, Strong Back or Dancehall?

I suppose the by the title, you are aware that it’s me, Trina. As usual, I wait for a topic of discussion to come up so that I can throw my weight behind it and… well… aphrodisiacs it is. Let’s provoke a few inner vixens tonight, shall we? Tell me honestly, do they work? Aphrodisiacs, I mean….

The Meaning of Friendship 

When I was about 18, I lost a friend that I had loved like a sister due to one most basic girl code reasons that I had thought shouldn’t take place, a guy. 

‘Ownership’ above ‘Equal Rights’?

Hey there folks, it’s T(Tea/Trina) time! This week’s banter is again on a dancehall controversial subject. Dexta Daps and his short film, effectively erasing all thoughts and attention from the ‘Equal Rights’ hallabaloo, squashing its reign. Thursday night, Mieann asked if we’d seen the Dexta Daps short film. We hadn’t and JoJo made reference to Dexta as the ‘Jamaican Trey…

Oral Sex Still a Controversy? How?!

Hi, guys, Trina here. Shan’s given me free reign (well, as much as she can and still maintain we are both ladies) tonight. I urge you to go get the biggest tea cup you can find because I’m coming for souls tonight! So if you’re underaged turn back now. If you are archaic, better leave…

Dream Date, Marriage & Sex

Someday, my husband will take me to Napa Valley or some Tuscany Vineyard for a surprise picnic with grapes, cheese, wine and smooches…

Does Size (Length) Really Matter?

TL; DR. The acronym means ‘too long; didn’t read’ and gets a bad rap because the user is labelled lazy and rude. But is that true? How many of us are guilty of this without typing it to let the author of a piece know? I know I am. As much as I love reading…
