Ask Uncut - He's just not that into you

First up, Laura's obsessed with the original 'quiet quitters' and they're pigeons.You can see why here. There's a bit of a conspiracy theory going on tiktok where people are claiming that they've been conned by restaurant owners! They are saying that they have been chatting to people on dating apps, and teeing up a date at a restaurant only to be stood up at the restaurant.So what do they do? Well, most of them end up buying dinner and drinks for themselves! Is this the most ridiculous conspiracy theory you've ever heard or do you think there's merit here? Vibes for the week: Laura: Netflix Doco "Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey" Britt: Dog Poncho Towel by Dog Keeshia: Lorna Jane 'The One' sports bra & Two Doting Dads episode Depression & Anxiety - Breaking the Stigma Then we jump into your deep, dark and burning questions: -My friend and I are moving out together to a rental. My boyfriend didn’t want to move out as he is happy living with family and is not working full time like my friend and I.My question is… when should you make your partner pay rent or put money towards things as he is bound to come stay multiple nights. Is it if he stays x amount of nights? What kind of boundaries do I need to set? -How important is it to talk through your issues after having a disagreement with your partner? My partner and I tend to have issues, get cross with each other for a couple of days and then just go back to normal like nothing ever happened. Part of me thinks this is ok as we can’t always be hunky dory, but there is another part of me that thinks there needs to be resolution and understanding when there are issues? I grew up in a household that was not good at resolving conflict so learning on the go now -I was ghosted by a guy who has come back and apologised for treating me poorly. I accepted the apology and we kept chatting. Last night I sent him a meme of a cat (he has a cat). We got onto the topic of dating and so on. I asked if he thought things would be different or the same if we dated now. He said probably the same and that we aren’t compatible because I have a dog! My dog is a small non barky toy poodle and is crate trained, sleeps in his own room and is an angel. So even though this guy and I get on super well and the sexy time was great at the time, his deal breaker on compatibility is because I have a dog - yet he has a cat…

Ask Uncut - Back ups, Bills and Bed Side Manner

First up today, well... it's chaos.Bills need to be paid and they're multiplying! But we also need to learn to distinguish the difference between a legitimate bill and a scam. *Brittany Hockley we are looking at you.We're all up to date with our skin checks, but Laura's got a bee in her bonnet about specialists waiting rooms. Vibes this week: Laura: Black Friday sales (swipe up swipe up ToniMay) Britt: Hand held steamer Keeshia: (snuck in two)Habit tracker app (This is the apple version)Podcast episode of The Daily Aus - Why a war crime whistleblower could go to jailQuestions for today: I’m 49 and have been divorced for 3 years after a 26 year marriage. I’m quite content on my own and have great friends but I recently decided to try online dating, just to see what it’s about and to have some male company and my profile says ‘nothing serious’. Anyway, I’ve been catching up with one guy once a month for dinner and sex; he is really lovely. Last weekend I went on a date with a different guy and he was wonderful too. My problem is… can I date 2 guys at the same time? I feel so guilty. The first guy probably wouldn’t mind that much but the second guy would hate it. Do I have to tell them about each other? My partner of 3 years has told me if I don’t ‘put out’ more he is going to leave me. We are both in our early 30s and his number 1 priority in a relationship is sex. We currently have sex twice a week and that isn’t enough for him. He told me our sex life is shit and makes him unhappy and people our age should be having sex all the time. I have vaginismus which is getting better but I don’t find sex enjoyable. I cannot orgasm from penetration, it can be uncomfortable but I can still have sex. He has said everything else in our relationship is perfect but the reason we are not engaged is because of the sex.. I feel really low about this. Any advice please I’ve been dating my boyfriend for the last year and a half. I've been a nurse for the last 5 years working with children and I've seen some terrible things. When we first started dating he mentioned he didn’t like hearing these “horrible stories'' so I lessened them. Just recently I was talking about work again and he said the same thing “I don’t want to hear about these stories.' I obviously don’t want to upset him but from time to time I want him to listen to my day and just vent. Am I being ridiculous by being upset that my partner can’t handle listening to my stories here and there? Or do I just stop talking about work altogether?

Ask Uncut - When a threesome turns into a pregnancy

Britt and her follicles are back on the mic! Britt gives us an update on where her eggs are at and how round 3 of egg freezing is going. And Laura poses the question - Is talking so much about egg freezing increasing fertility anxiety? We chat about Taylor Swift's maybe PR, maybe not PR relationship. Vibes for the week:Laura - Pet Ancestry tests! Buster is learning his heritage Britt - Podcast The Trial: Ashling Murphy Then we jump into your questions & today has the most hectic one we think we've ever received.-My fiance and I had a threesome with a friend. Everything was consensual and respectful of boundaries. The woman who we had this threesome is now pregnant and my fiance is the biological father. He said that he was quite drunk (we all were) and he vaguely remembers the condom may have broken. I’m so embarrassed about how jealous I am now feeling that this is all happening and am even starting to question our relationship moving forward. It sounds awful because it’s no one’s fault that this happened but I am not sure if I can accept that this situation, it’s just become way too much for me. -My boyfriend and I have been thinking about making a sex tape for ourselves. What’s your thoughts on this? Have you/would you ever make one? I’m not sure how exactly to go about it as I obviously would hate for it to go anywhere else but it would be cool for both of us to have access to it. Would love your advice on this subject! -I have been with my partner for 3 years . We own a house together and are engaged. Since February I have been feeling unsure if I want the relationship. Everything on paper seems good. But I am just not physically attracted to him. I even sometimes feel embarrassed that I am with him. On the other hand we get along really well. I also feel secure and have a lot of trust in this relationship. I have never had this before. He adores me so much and I mostly enjoy his company. I love the life we have built together so far but I also find my eyes wandering. No action, just wandering. I do however feel maybe I have settled for a nice guy but maybe not someone I am crazy about, maybe out of fear.

Elise speaks about utilising feelings of envy as a driving force to show us what we actually want in life.

The fine line when it comes to injectables, and the intimacy paradox.

We discuss whether there's a hesitation at the moment for people to be diagnosed with ADHD because it's become very popular on TikTok/in the media. Keeshia has been properly diagnosed and we will do a whole episode where we unpack it at some point.What do we want when we talk about people having cosmetic procedures? Do we want transparency or does that 'normalise' it to the point of it being promotion?Is it fair to expect people to buck the trend and 'age' naturally when they also are a product of the societal pressures to remain 'beautiful?'Plus Laura speaks about the current ebbs and flows of her relationship at the 1 year wedding anniversary mark. We unpack the intimacy paradox and how to keep desire in long term relationships. Is it even possible to expect novelty and spiciness when you also want stability, support and reliability from your partner?

Ask Uncut - When You're the Only Single One in Your Whole Friendship Group

Hey Lifers!Welcome back to your ask uncut therapy session! Today is a biggie because Laura is back and covid free.Britt's been hogtied and mortified from the little ratbag that is Delilah. Laura's luggage is finally back in her hands so the life updates are full of highs and lols today. We break down possibly the pettiest court case to exist in the celebrity space between Robert De Niro and his ex assistant Chase Robinson. It's time to pick your fighter and choose your side.He claims she stole $60,000 worth of frequent flyer miles and watched 55 hours worth of Friends in 4 days.She claims he was inappropriate and asked her to scratch his back and be available to book bus tickets for his kids on the day of her grandmother's funeral.It really could be the plot line for a movie. Would De Niro play himself?Vibes for this week:Laura - Prime video "shiny happy people" Britt - Netflix Last Stop Larrimah Keeshia - The Quokkas kids music group Then we jump into your questions!-I have been dating this guy for a few weeks and we get on really well. But his driving is so bad, he spends more time looking at me than the road. He rides/pumps the accelerators and is so harsh on the break. It makes me feel so sick. I haven’t ever gotten car sick but twice now his driving has made me feel so sick that I have had to end the date a little early. Should I say anything? How can I see a future with someone that constantly makes me car sick -I work in the corporate world and get paid 8:30-5. Currently my workload has been good so I have been able to leave at 5:30 most days. When I have a lot of work I will work back late and have even worked on public holidays (unpaid). There are other juniors in my team (who have less experience than me) who always stay back until around 6pm, so essentially I’m usually the first junior to leave. I’m almost always the first person to arrive. I also have more experience so generally am more efficient, will often work through lunch and won’t chat for super long during the day. I’m worried our bosses don’t see this effort and just see me leave first every day. I’m also worried that the other juniors don’t think I’m working as hard as them, as there have been some comments that they stay late every day and I feel they’re subtly aimed at me. -I'm a single mum of 3 young kids, I’ve been separated for 7 months now.. I haven’t had any interest in meeting or sleeping with anyone but I’ve recently developed a crush on one of the coaches at my gym! I was with my husband for 12 years, married for 8 (I’m 34 for context) so my question is, I have no idea how to show him I’m keen/put the feelers out.. I’m sure he wouldn’t want to date me as I have a lot of baggage but I’d be happy with a shag 😆 but also would it be too complicated because I then have to see him regularly? Such a dating rookie, don’t know what to do 🙈 -I am starting to feel real down about my lack of love life. I feel like all my friends are getting engaged or married and I’m the only one left single. I'm nearing 30 and came out of a toxic relationship 3 years ago where my partner was having an affair, he moved on straight away. I have been on dating apps and I’m not sure if it’s my city or what but it’s the bottom of the barrel and I don’t want to waste my time with people who don’t have similar values or a lifestyle that aligns with mine. I’m very independent and fine alone but have reached a stage where I want someone to share my life with. I honestly feel like I’m going to have to wait for people to start getting divorced at this rate or going to have to literally move cities just to find someone. I'm starting to avoid going out or catching up with friends as it always feels like I’m the only one alone and not with a partner, and when I do go I end up feeling really sad and alone. I throw myself into working too much so I don’t have time to feel sad because it’s really starti

Laura's got Covid 🦠 A new theory on Oxytocin and A Principal's newsletter

From the highest of live show tour highs, to the depths of viral lows, we've had quite the week. Laura's luggage is on a little journey of it's own and is...most likely... still in Brisbane (*trying to get more info on this).Laura, Producer Keeshia and Mitch have all fallen like dominos from covid and somehow Britt's immune system is still going strong. There's a neuroscientist who has claimed that there are chemical reasons that women fall in love with men when they are having sex; whereas it's not quite the same for men. The science is a bit up for debate but Laura has some anecdotal evidence she'd like to bring to the table. We also unpack a newsletter sent by the headmaster of the Sydney all boys private school where Lilie James was murdered where he labelled her murderer as 'not a monster.'These types of character descriptions, along with other accounts of positive personality traits are a way for people to distance themselves from the idea that they know someone capable of such violence. We don't want to think that a person we know or care about is capable of such evil behaviour. A huge part of breaking down the false perception that society has around domestic violence is that we need to better understand that these men are 'normal' men, who live where we do and hold normal jobs. We also discuss how certain media using phrases like 'scorned lover' diminishes the responsibility from the murderer, and contributes to victim blaming.

The 'Currency' of the Ageing Woman - Uncut with Trinny Woodall

Today's guest is just so fabulous! It's Trinny Woodall. Trinny Woodal is an extremely successful business woman, entrepreneur, TV presenter, author, podcaster and fashion expert! Trinny's story is one that would take hours and hours to talk about. At 26 Trinny went to rehab, got clean and started in an entirely new career. At 35 she underwent 16 rounds of IVF. At 53 she started Trinny London. In the last few years she has grown that business into one of the most successful makeup and skincare companies in the world. We wanted to speak about the belief that a woman's value declines as we age. Society has us so focussed on holding onto our youth, but Trinny is a bit of a juxtaposition to this. She has such a refreshing take what women bring to the table as we age.

Who Owns a Story? From Beckham to Britney

We're home from the Melbourne show and it was LIIIIIT!We were so lucky to have had a surprise interview with Tones and I where she shared some stories about her life that have never been shared publicly before.Today we take a deep dive on who owns a story?Firstly we unpack the re-exposure of Rebecca Loos, the woman who, 20 years ago, had an 'alleged' affair with David Beckham. She has spoken out since the release of the Beckham bio pic on Netflix about David's lack of accountability, playing the victim and having herself thrown back into the spotlight when she doesn't want to be. Secondly, on topic of who owns a story, we dissect Britney Spear's memoir and the details that were released as publicity for the book. She disclosed that Justin Timberlake claimed they were too young to become parents. Does she have the right to share this story? Does anyone have the right to disclose someone else's experience around abortion? Your answer to those two questions may be different because this is a bit of an unusual situation.

Ask Uncut - Laura's new s*x soundtrack, scrapped from the guest list and too much baggage

First up, may we please ask you for a hot little sec to vote for us in the Australian Podcast Awards Listener's choice?! Laura has been getting down to cocomelon sound tracks and it's official; we're not envious of her sex life! She mentioned the episode we did with Johann Hari last year and it's a banger. If you'd like to listen to it, you can here - This One Is For The Scatterbrains Vibes:Britt - Paramount plus show - Special Ops Lioness Laura - News app Feedly Then we jump into your deep, dark and burning questions. I received a save the date for a friend’s wedding a year ago, the wedding is at end of this October and haven’t yet received a formal invite (currently beginning of October), even though I know other people going to the wedding have received theirs. I have drifted from this friend over the past year and would not be upset if I was no longer invited, as I am currently planning my own wedding and am having a very hard time with my own guest list. My question is: do I say anything? Do I get my other friends to ask on my behalf? Or do I just leave it? This listener is living abroad and loving her life, but the dating scene there is grim. “I’m turning 30 this year and I know it shouldn’t and is stupid but it weighs heavily on my mind. I can’t stop doing the biological clock maths. I will go home in a few years anyway, but my dilema is should I go home early now to meet someone. I love my life here at the moment and although I’d be happy at home, moving right now would be purely for that reason. For context I’ve always enjoyed dating in my home city. Is it silly to base such a huge decision on finding love, or is it realistic and worth it to make the decision for love? I feel as if all my friends back home are getting engaged and coupled up and like I’m missing the boat. I'm a 33 year old female whose brother was diagnosed with late stage cancer a couple of years ago. I'm heavily involved in treatment and support and have put my life on the back burner to focus on him and support my family for the last couple of years. I've put dating on the back burner and have a real desire to meet someone but I carry with me a very heavy heavy life and responsibilities which a lot of people aren't looking for - especially on the dating apps, where they often say things like "I want someone who doesn't take life too seriously" I just don't know how to navigate dating when my life has been consumed by sadness and hospitals the last few years..

First up today we're chatting about the simple way to see if your friends actually like you!Annnnd we want to know which word you mispronounced once and it still haunts you to this day. Vibes for this week:Britt: Peaky Blinders on Netflix Keeshia: Wild with Sarah Wilson - Left is Not Woke Laura: Headspace Tools about the referendum Then we jump into your questions! -My partner still has s3x videos of his ex in a secret album in his phone. We have also made videos together and the secret album is where it is safely kept. Going to watch our video is actually how I found out about the old video with his ex. I asked him to delete any old stuff he has of his past relationships and he said that he would. Now, 2 weeks later I checked and the video is still there. What should I do?-I went for a job, it’s a once in a lifetime, rare and amazing opportunity sort of thing. I'm 23 and everyone there is a bit older than me. Although I’m young I can honestly say that I’m extremely mature for my age, I’m just so sick of people judging me for my young age, and I hate being the youngest person in the room. So when I was asked how old I am? I said without thinking, "I’m 26." I immediately regret it and I’m shitting myself that I’m going to get caught out. What should I do? Do I take this to my grave? Do I tell them the truth? -When you've bought a pet (in this case a dog) with a partner and you break up, can you ask for 'pet support' (financial input from them ongoing) to help you pay for the pet that you keep in the break up?

When Allison was just 18 years old, she was involved in a car accident that left her lucky to be alive and as a paraplegic. From this accident, there have been ongoing complications that has meant she has had to undergo around 100 surgeries and her health is now deteriorating. Allison has one of the most wicked senses of humour you've ever heard and there are a few things in this episode that you might have been curious about and always wanted to know! (If Allison's family are reading this, this would be your time to turn away because doggie is going to enter the chat...) Now, Ali is off on the trip of a lifetime with her partner and her sister before she makes the very difficult decision to end her own life. Euthanasia is a complex discussion. Allison brings such a beautiful perspective on living while being aware of your own mortality.

Is young divorce 'chic' now? And living with schizophrenia with Elfy Scott

Hey Lifers! Producer Keeshia is in the hot seat today but Laura's been on the stirrups seat! We kick today off with some pap chat. Click, click, click of the speculum and some 'interesting' questions of who you'd like doing your pap smear were raised. Em Rata is wanting to brand being divorced in your 20s as 'chic.' Previously we spoke about micro marriages and with Olivia Rogers about her divorce. We unpack whether young divorce needs a rebrand and whether Em Rata is a bit too privileged to label it as "chic." Joining the podcast today is journalist, podcaster and author of ‘the one thing we’ve never spoken about,' Elfy Scott. Elfy grew up in a household where her mum’s schizophrenia was rarely spoken about inside or outside of their home. Today we’re going to unpack the reality of what living with schizophrenia is actually like as well as the stigma that we have surrounding complex mental health conditions We chat about: How our understanding of what schizophrenia is is wrong Diagnosis, misconceptions and stigma Different types of hallucinations/delusions Schizophrenia presenting differently in men & women Why it's possible to have an onset of schizophrenic symptoms when you have a baby

Is "Fat" a Dirty Word? Talking fat phobia and body neutrality with Laura Adlington

Laura's now a believer! She's experienced a bit of an out of body experience! We unpack a clip going viral on tiktok at the moment and have a question for you! Is it okay to ask someone for their financial status before going on a date with them? More deeply, do you think you could have a successful relationship with someone who has a different level of ambition to you?. Joining the podcast today is body confidence influencer, Great British Bake Off contestant and future author of ‘diet starts Monday’ Laura Adlington. There seems to be a lot of internet conversation around completely loving ourselves and being entirely confident in our body and while that's absolutely the goal, it's not where a lot of us are genuinely at. This conversation feels so real. It's very honest and completely transparent. We chat: • Why we feel like we don't like ourselves • Diet culture messaging is built into us from when we are kids • Body neutrality movement and learning to focus on other components of yourself over your body • How laura feels about the word fat & how fatphobia looks in our world • Opinions on bariatric surgery and medications like ozempic • How fertility is impacted by body size & Laura's BMI prevents her from adopting a child

Ask Uncut - Can you expect monogamy if you no longer want sex with your partner?

There's a lot going on today: ringworm, TV free lives, and pre peacocking. Big question for ya, if you are in a long term relationship and you stop wanting to have sex (for any reasons), can you/should you 'allow' your partner to fulfil their sexual desires somewhere else? There are so many factors that come into play with this question, and we unpack the grey areas. Vibes for the week:Laura: Errr not having a TVBritt: Cruel Summer on Prime videoKeeshia: Only murders in the building on Disney+ Then we jump into your questions: Should I feel guilty about having a sex dream about one of my boyfriend’s single friends? This is maybe the second time I’ve ever had a sex dream and I woke up very horny. My partner and I have been together for 8 years. Within the next few months he is going to receive a portion of his inheritance from the sale of the family business. It is a huge amount (8 figures). He sat me down last night and explained to me that (his exact words) he did not trust me with his money and he wants me to sign a prenup/binding financial agreement before he receives it. I'm really hurt by the way he has raised this issue. Am I right to feel upset or am I overreacting? I separated from my husband of 12 years about 2 years ago, it was a defence family so I spent a lot of my marriage alone looking after our 2 young kids whilst he was away and feeling very alone, unsupported and unimportant compared to his work. I became very depressed. I have recently started dating someone & he is a widow. His girlfriend passed away 3 years ago with cancer. He has had flings but nothing more since. Now after we spend time together he feels guilty and depressed because of his grief. I understand this is very normal. My question is… do I persist or will I be 2nd to something else again? This sounds wrong but I suffered years of never feeling like I was the priority.

Ask Uncut - Crazy Hormones, Salmon Sperm Facials and Story Stalking

Little update on Britt's fertility and where her (small) eggs are at! We unpack the weirdest beauty treatments including salmon sperm facials...We also talk about how it's refreshing to see people like Julia Morris being open with the cosmetic procedures they elect to have.Our vibes for the week:Britt: Point hacks au on instagramLaura: Painkiller on Netflix (and also Dope sick on Disney plus)Keeshia: Denton Ultime Pillow Then we jump into your questions: My ex and I have been broken up since march. He wanted to get back together, I didn't and so he blocked me on social media. I’ve found out that he has a new girlfriend of 2 months. A week ago unblocked me and started viewing all my stories. He doesn’t follow me so he has been intentionally looking me up and stalking me. I know I shouldn’t care but what the hell? I still have feelings but also know I don’t want to go there again and wouldn’t because he has a girlfriend. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN ? Should you uninvite a friend from your birthday party if they don’t even text you on your birthday? Context, I’m having a limited seating birthday lunch and had to be tight with the number of people I invited. When I put the invite out a few weeks ago, she responded saying that she would like to come but wanted to bring her partner as well. I said yes, and allocated 2 of the limited seats to them. My party is coming up now, as I had my birthday last week but the thing is, I haven’t heard from her in weeks. I didn’t hear from her on my birthday and not since. I feel annoyed that I gave up 2 spots for them and feel like I want to tell them that they can’t come. Is it crazy to message the family, mum in particular, of a guy who has ghosted you? We dated for a year, but we were long-distance. I was supposed to see him in 2 weeks for the first time this year but now he's ghosted me. He said he's super overwhelmed with work and it takes a toll on him but he loves me so much. Never did he ever say that we had ended, he simply has ghosted me. I can see that he's following a couple new girls on instagram, so clearly he has time on his hands. I want him to know that no one deserves this and he can't get away with treating people like this but he won't respond to my messages. I'm not going to keep pushing him but I want his family to know how he's treated me. I know it's a bit crazy, but I want to know whether it is completely unacceptable or not?

Not everything happens for a reason. Grief and life after loss with Lotte Bowser

It's Britt and Keeshia's birthday! The conversation around milestone anxiety (especially because one of them is turning the big 3-0) rears it's head again. Laura & Producer Keeshia unpack whether Keeshia's joy around her birthday this year is linked to being in a relationship & what it means we need to be doing for our single friends on their birthdays! There's a new study that has shown that (in hetero relationships) men are more commonly the first to say "I love you." A particularly interesting part of the study showed that it usually takes 69 days for them to say it... we're not the ones crunching the numbers here.Then we get into a truly great interview with Lotte Bowser. Lotte Bowser is a writer and podcaster. It was a modern day romance where two people both swiped right and fell in love almost instantly. They moved in together, they travelled together, they got engaged and then in 2019 Ben was diagnosed with terminal cancer. In late 2020, Ben died and Lotte had to 'say goodbye' from a hazmat suit. Lotte has had to learn how to navigate life as a young widow and how to move forward with her life. In this chat we speak about:-The stages of grief are b******t-Grief can be so isolating and so lonely-How to support someone through the loss of someone, and also what not to do-Finding purpose and moving forward after someone you love has died

This episode is not brought to you tourism Magnetic Island, but it would be understandable if you were mistaken. Happy 70th birthday to Laura's dad and big shout out to all of the koala's. Today we lost it laughing hearing all of your misheard lyrics! We officially feel better about the silly lyrical mistakes we make! Vibes for the week: Keeshia - Sleep!

Then we jump into your questions: My partner doesn’t yawn at the same time as me. He doesn’t “catch” my yawns. Does that mean he isn’t emotionally connected to me? My bf and I have been together 5 years, lived together for 2, bought our dog a year ago. We both see our future together and always talk about it. I feel really strongly about getting engaged and have been pretty clear about it but it is not on his mind. He always says things like "what's the rush" and "we have everything we need" and I think he genuinely believes and means that. He says he doesn't "feel ready" and that it's not me it's him. His parents are divorced, so are his grandparents, uncle, Auntie, sister's husband. The family is full of divorce. I am from a family where there has been no divorce. I think we see marriage and engagement very differently because of this. It has created some tense conversations and we both understand how each other feel but neither of us will budge. Am I being stupid getting so worked up over a ring when everything else is great? My best friend has always struggled with not feeling good enough for the men she dates. She has had a few situationships but last year she got into her first official relationship. I really don’t like her boyfriend but I haven’t said anything. However, over this past year I’ve heard him make comments about her weight. She has also lost A LOT of weight since being with him. Last night we went out for dinner and he made comments like ‘you should work out more’ ‘when we get done with dinner you should jog back to the car’ and ‘are you finishing all of that?’. I’m worried about what his comments are doing to her mentally. How do I talk to her about this?

When you're going on a flight with someone else, pack a change of clothes in each other's bag incase your bag gets lost on the way. At least then you've got a change of clothes. Unsubscribe- apple air tags are too expensive for the basic device that they are and you absolutely should not be strapping them to your kid Then we unpack your questions. If a relationship cannot survive a 6 month stint of long distance, is it the right relationship at all? Should I be concerned if my new partner tells me he experimented with his sexuality when he was younger but claims he has sorted it out and is now into women? Note: I am not attracted to bisexual people and it puts me off a bit. Is it weird to want to organise your own hens?

Ask Uncut - Laura's unhinged and Britt's a unicorn psychopath

Laura's unhinged (again) and Britt might need to unpack why she finds enjoyment in true crime because there's a psychologist who says that's kinda weird. Do you relax by watching true crime? After a night out myself, my boyfriend of 1.5 years and one of my best girl friends (who is gay) went home together and one thing led to another and we ended up having a threesome. We had never spoken about the possibility of doing this and it’s the first time it’s happened. Since it’s happened I can’t stop picturing my boyfriend having sex with my best friend as I just laid there next to them, and I feel sick. Since my best friend is gay I feel like it meant nothing to her, but he is straight and chose to have penetrative and oral sex with her. Is this something I should be concerned about? Can we move on from this? I’ve tried to talk to him about it but he’s not overly fussed about the situation and is kind of de-validating my concerns (ie saying “we’ll you were involved just as much as me”) My best friend recently matched on Bumble with a guy from America. Although he is currently living in America, they matched because he had his status set to traveling in preparation for an upcoming trip to Aus. Over the last few weeks they’ve been texting, calling and FaceTiming every day and are totally smitten. They’ve even been discussing wedding plans for this summer and choosing baby names. They’ve also talked about her moving there because he said with his job he would have to start from square one if he moved here. She said she knows it all seems crazy but she’s sure he is her penguin and that she’s never felt like this before and neither has he. He’s coming here at the end of next month and I’m just so skeptical!! Am I right to feel that way? Or should I just be supportive of her happiness? She’s just come out of a tumultuous couple of years in her personal life so I feel super protective of her. HELP! Do you flush the toilet at night time if your partner or housemate or family are asleep? What’s the etiquette? A friend of mine got married a few months ago and then asked a group of friends to plan the hens. The wedding was really small and the kicker was that none of the friends who were asked to plan the hens were invited. We all find it a bit weird that we've been asked to plan the 'fling after the ring' despite not being invited to the wedding

Ask Uncut - Can I post your baby?

Should you always ask the parent before sharing a photo of their child on social media? I'm a new parent and I've had some ask and others not. It makes me feel frustrated that they don't ask/have the etiquette to ask me first. Am I stingy? A couple friend of ours invited my partner and I over for dinner. We have hosted them a few times. I asked "is there anything you'd like us to bring?" to which they responded "No, that's okay. We can add up how much it all costs and let you know how much to transfer." After dinner they asked me to transfer $15. It's left a weird taste in my mouth. Is it normal to ask your dinner guests to transfer you money for dinner? My partner and I have been together for 10 months and we live together, but he doesn't want our relationship on social media. He is okay with me posting things of him, but he doesn't post anything of me. Am I silly for caring about this or do you think it's an issue?

Ask Uncut - He's in a sexless marriage, can I be his side piece?

I met a guy on an app and he is seeking one person to have FWB. He is in a sexless marriage, and not wanting to leave his wife. Personally, I am fine with what he wants as that suits what I’m looking for, and it’s his decision if he is choosing to cheat. I have not actively gone after him. I know it’s wrong but I’m so over doing what is right for everyone else when I just want to have some fun and I deserve that. I have been cheated on in the past and it is horrible. But if it’s not me he will still do this with someone else. My question/worry is that if I meet someone down the track, do you think this would be something they would judge me for given the situation? Does this make me a bad person? I’ve been with my partner for 2 years now and he has a child with his ex partner. He has baby bump pictures of his ex in his phone, some of which she is completely naked in. Am I being a complete psychopath and jealous because I want a baby with him but he isn’t ready so him having these photos makes me super sad and I feel like this is such a horrible thing for me to feel. Is this ok? My partner and I have been together for 6 years and lived together for 4. My ideal bed time is 10pm however my partners isn’t until 11pm. I like to go to bed at the same time as I tend to sleep better and don’t get interrupted when he gets in. It might seem comical but we are often arguing about bedtime! Is this an area of contention in other relationships? How do you suggest we manage this? Presume other couples like to go to bed at different times so there must be a solution here!

I had a first date on Friday night and the restaurant was packed and there was a one hour wait because my date didn't think ahead to book when he had picked the restaurant and asked me out 🙃 I got the ick really bad after that as we had to walk around trying to find an empty restaurant to go to. Do I have a right to be upset if my best friends forget my birthday? I always know their birthdays by heart but without Facebook reminders or me making note of it on my social media, my birthday will pass without any thought on their part. It feels hurtful and I feel forgettable My partner is about to propose & whenever he brings it up, he says, "I’ve planned the perfect moment, but just warning you, don’t have high expectations for the ring." My dream ring is $10k, which I understand is a lot of money, but he also has a decent job and about $100k sitting in savings, buthe ‘doesn’t think it’s about the ring.’ To me, it’s such a special and important symbol of our union and something I want to keep forever! I feel horrible saying this, but I’d rather he never propose than propose without a ring I love.

Ask Uncut - Not your darl!

Our next door neighbour is a sex worker, and we have a 4 month old new baby (read: sleep deprived, exhausted, overwhelmed, all the things). We don’t have any issue with sex work, it’s just… really loud, a lot of spanking, whipping, moaning etc. This is a problem because on the rare occasion we get to sleep, we are often kept awake by the noise. I’m conscious it’s her job though so what can she do? Vice versa, a crying baby probably isn’t the best for her business. Help! 😩 Are terms of endearment in the workplace ever appropriate? I’m getting married in November and some people are assuming they’re invited to my wedding. I’m talking to the borderline friends that I see maybe once or twice a year saying statements like “I can’t wait for your wedding” or “have you finished your guest list”. It makes me super uncomfortable and I don’t know how to respond so I just kind of awkwardly laugh. Do I just need to wait for people's disappointment when they don’t get an invite or do I tell them now that we don’t have enough space for them and they’re not on my list? Help!

Ask Uncut - Cheaters never win, they come third.

At what point does thinking about an ex go from curious, where you look at their social media etc to see what they've been up to, to unhealthy? Is it weird to cut your toenails in the shower? My partner and I argue about this all the time! He likes to cut his toenails in the shower so the clippings go down the drain. I get a massive 'ick' from this and would much rather he cut them straight into the bin! One-on-one dinners with my long-term boyfriend are awkward. We spend a lot of our time together, so when it comes to a sit down, across from each other, I find that at times we have nothing to talk about! Does anyone else feel this way?

Is it rude to tell someone in person at the end of a first date that you aren't interested in seeing them again? Even if you know that you're not interested, should you wait until later to send a message or ghost? My husband (who I truly love) makes a weird breathy sound when he sleeps. It wakes me up. I have said that I want to sleep in the spare room and he seemed really offended. What do you think? My partner has a piece of jewellery that his ex bought for him. He still wears it.

Joining us today is Dr Ali Walker. Ali is a Human Connection Scientist with a PhD in group dynamics. She has spent a large part of her adult life wanting to understand more deeply why we seem to 'click' with certain people and 'clash' with others.It's likely you've heard of introversion and extraversion, but Ali's research goes a step further and helps us understand how we connect with certain people; it's through two frameworks she labels 'frequency' and 'intensity.' We were so interested in how this can be applied to our romantic relationships. friendships and even our workplace relationships. Do 'opposites' actually attract? Turns out no, and that would likely lead to a bad relationship. Ali unpacks exactly how alike we should be with our romantic partners! We also unpack the three different types of loneliness and how you can be surrounded by people but still feel lonely.You can get more of Dr Ali Walker's research and her new book "Click or Clash' here https://awalker.co/We also unpack the new doco by Brooke Shields called 'Pretty Baby' (on Disney plus) and the hypersexualisation of children in pop culture.

We unpack a horrible new dating term/trend called chadfishing.Have you ever been chadfished before? We want to know!Today the questions we are diving into are: My best friend is about to have her first child. I am very much childfree by choice. I think she's naive in thinking that nothing will change when the baby comes. When we organise to hang out, how can I ask her not to bring the kid? I've just found out that my mum cheated on my dad years ago while they were still married. They divorced a while ago and my dad now has a new partner. I am closer with my dad than my mum. Should I tell him about my mum's affair even though it was a long time ago and they're already divorced? I was a bridesmaid at a wedding over the weekend and got pretty drunk. At the afterparty I fell into a threesome with the MC (who is the groom's brother) and his girlfriend. Somehow everyone knows. Do I need to apologise to the bride and groom? I don't regret the threesome but I do regret it happening after their wedding Can you ghost your hairdresser? I have changed hair salons but I follow my old one on instagram and she follows me. I want to post from my new salon because it's really nice and I love my new hair so I want to share it, but I'm worried I will hurt my old hair dresser's feelings.

Ask uncut - Put a Single Ring On It

Welcome to Ask Uncut, where we answer all of your deep, dark and dirty questions.First up today, we'd love to know, if you are single or if you were single, would you be open to wearing a particular ring to indicate that you were single and open to being approached IRL?We've got mixed feelings and wonder whether it may become as mainstream as online dating. Question 1: When I was on a night out with a friend, I met a guy. His friend invited my friend and I back to his apartment. Our physical intimacy progressed throughout the night and we got very close, only I didn’t sleep with him because of a weird gut feeling that something was off. I gave him my number and we said we couldn’t wait to go on a date to spend some time together. The next day, I found his Instagram. His tagged posts have a wedding video of him and his beautiful wife. I clicked on her profile and it shows they’re still married. I feel disgusted with him and myself. My question is, do you think the wife has a right to know and should I be the one to tell her? Question 2: I'm 26 and have been with my boyfriend for 2 years. I've decided I want to move to Australia for 1 year. He has said that he would be keen to come with me. He's great, kind etc, but I'm not sure he is the one! Should I allow him to move to the other side of the world with me if I'm not 100% sure about him or should I break it off for a fresh start even though I'm not sure if I want to break up? Question 3: If your partner has 'made' the decision that it is time to go to sleep, e.g. lights off, phones down, do both of you have to put the devices down, turn the lights off and go to sleep?

Today we start by unpacking whether it's the responsibility of the interviewee to hold up the conversation if the interviewer isn't doing a great job. Hugh Grant is being slammed for his interview with Ashley Graham, and we might be in the minority on this one. The vibes of the week are: Britt: Omnilux LED mask https://bit.ly/3YPN69k Laura: Kath Koschel's book 'Kindness' https://bit.ly/3YMsrTt Kath's episode: https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/life-uncut/id1472126503?i=1000590088293 The questions we tackle today are: -When is it okay to be someone’s second choice?Context- I met this guy 5 years ago and we followed each other on instagram. Fast forward and we went on a nice date a few weeks ago. The following week I got a message saying that he had such a great time and really liked me, but his ex had been in contact and he felt as though things weren’t finished between them.Fast forward again, it’s been two months and he’s messaged saying that things are well and truly finished and that he’d like to go out again. Would you go? -I had a sex dream about my boss and now I can’t stop seeing him in a sexual way. He is single but there would be what I guess you’d say a power in balance between us. Should I put out some feelers and see if he maybe sees me in the same way or am I asking for trouble?I’m not sure if it’s just a bit of a hot fantasy or if maybe we actually could work in a relationship. We have a lot in common and I know that a lot of people meet their long term partners at work-How can I distance our relationship without ruining it?I have a half-sister & we did not grow up together. Initially I loved the idea of having a sister, but she wants the type of relationship where we text all day, call a few times a week, and basically give a play by play of our day and our lives. It's exhausting and not who I am.

Welcome back to your weekly therapy.First up, f*ck the casting of SAS Australia. We're so completely over these really problematic people being given the chance at 'the redemption arc.Throw it in the bin!Today the questions we are unpacking are:-My ex and I have mutual friends that are coming down to visit for a weekend coming up, so it is likely that we will all hang out at some stage and I will have to see my ex. I haven’t seen/spoken to him in months and things didn’t end on very good terms as he cheated on me. I don’t want to miss out on hanging out with my friends and feel like I can’t expect him to either. It would probably be in a group of about 5-7 people. Should I still hang out with my friends when I know my ex will be there?-How do you overcome loneliness? My entire friendship group has a partner/is in a relationship. I am so happy for them that they have all found their penguins, however I am the only single person in my core friendship group and in my life. None of my friends want to go out for drinks or to party because they would rather be at home with their partner, which I totally get. I am an introvert and find it very hard to make new friends. I also find it difficult to do things on my own to ‘fill my own cup’. I love being single but when I look at my friends and see how happy they are in their relationships it makes me feel so lonely as I have not found my penguin yet. I tried online dating and absolutely hated it as all the people I matched with gave me the biggest ick. How do I overcome this feeling of loneliness, and how do I keep the belief that I will find my penguin one day?-How do you know if you've squirted?Is it a different sensation?

ASK UNCUT - Can we stop with speaking your truth

"No offence but" doesn't always translate. Vibe or unsubscribe this week:Laura - Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery on NetflixBritt - Hands free dog leash https://notyourregularpet.com/collections/handsfreeThen we jump into your questions!I’ve just found out I’m pregnant and I am trying to decide on baby names. There is one name that I have loved for years (literally), I had it written down in my notes from 2017 - because I mean, who doesn’t have a list of baby names they love? My best friend’s sister had a baby 18 months ago and named the baby the name I have loved since 2017. I see my best friend’s sister and her baby often… is it bad if I still go ahead and use this name even though I’ll see her and her baby often? … the spelling would be different but it would be the same name. Should I ask her if she’s okay with it?I am currently 34 weeks pregnant and my husband and I have not had sex in weeks. Prior to this we had a very healthy sex life. I’ve brought it up multiple times with him and he’s said that’s it’s difficult to have sex with me when I have such a big tummy. He tries to reassure me by saying I’m beautiful but it’s hard to be sexually attracted to me. I’ve suggested we try other positions where my belly isn’t visible to him which he says “yeah we can try” but still nothing. I also know he often masturbates. It’s already hard to see my body going through all these changes but to also feel undesired by my husband hits even harder. Is it normal for your partner to not want to be intimate with you at this stage in pregnancy? I worry that if we don’t have sex until after the 6 weeks baby is born that there’s going to be an immense pressure on it. I don’t know what else I can do to encourage him - it also is a massive hit to my confidence every time I get shut down for sex.As businesswomen who work incredibly hard, how do you deal with the haters trying to bring you down? I have a business that is pretty successful. I work hard 7 days a week and put my heart and soul into it.

Welcome to your therapy Thursday where we unpack your questions and concerns, but first we need to get to the important stuff.We asked for you to describe the worst sex you've had in 6 words.A galvanising experience! We've all had one bad one but these take the cake.What the girls are vibing or unsubscribing from this week:Britt: Vibe = new season of BumpUnsubscribing = people not letting you use their binsLaura: Vibe = Big Miracles on channel 9 Today we're unpacking these questions: -I have been seeing someone that I really, really like. Problem is, he's moving back home in a few months and I have no desire at all to move overseas. My question is, should I keep spending my time with him even though I know it's not going to go anywhere?-My fiance and I want to book our wedding date (in 16 months time) on the date that his friend's fiance wants to have her bridal shower... They are planning on getting married 2 weeks after. She is telling me that I am being selfish by trying to book that day when she 'already has plans for that day,' but I think she is being unreasonable so who is in the wrong?-My husband is obsessed with gaming and I feel like it’s becoming an addiction. We’ve discussed it, but he just laughs it off or denies that it’s an issue. He will get home from work and be on his games till well after I’m asleep. I feel like it’s really starting to irritate me and he’s not listening to any of my concerns. What should I do? How can I get through to him to spend less hours playing video games?If you have a question you'd like us to answer send it to @lifeuncutpodcast on instagram!Tell your mum, tell your dad, tell your dog, tell your friend and share the love because we love love!! xx

Surviving an eruption with Kelsey Waghorn

Hey Lifers! It's our favourite day of the week and boy do we have a big one for you. First up today, Laura lost her shit at a family on a boat over the weekend but you might agree with her reasons. We unpack why some of y'all are dating people who look like they could be your siblings #siblingsordating and why it may not be as weird as it sounds. Then we are joined by Kelsey Waghorn. Kelsey was a tour guide on Whakaari/White Island - the volcano that erupted in 2019 and claimed the lives of 22 people. Kelsey suffered severe burns to her body, and has had to relearn to walk and become comfortable in her new skin. Kelsey speaks incredibly vulnerably about how it's not the physical recovery, despite that being incredibly challenging, but rather the mental recovery from such a traumatic event that she has found difficult. Kelsey's resilience is inspiring and we feel very fortunate to have spoken with her. You can follow Kelsey's journey here: https://www.instagram.com/kezzelsify/?hl=enJust a little reminder to hit subscribe so that the podcast is in your libraries as soon as we drop an episode.

BACH UNCUT - put a fork in me I'm done

Get the kleenexes ready because it’s the finale and the very last episode of Bach Uncut for 2023! Three strapping young men who have spent the last few weeks working their way through a truckload of women (mainly Felix) are left with Lauren, Leah, Abigail, Jess, Alésia and Angela - $50 to anyone who can put a face to each of their names. We don’t want to give away the result but there’s two proposals (only one is successful) the beloved Damien decides to make a return for one last visit - we hope he’s being paid by Channel 10 for this. It’s been an absolute blast recording these eps for you. If you’ve enjoyed listening to our dribble, we’d love it if you left a review! We now return to your usual Life Uncut programming..

Not the date to celebrate - Uncut with Taylah Gray

Today's bonus episode is about Jan 26. Currently a public holiday recognised as 'Australia Day.' But Invasion Day is a day of mourning for First Nations people and many other Australians. Joining us is proud Wiradjuri woman Taylah Gray who is currently completing her PhD on native title and sovereignty. In this episode we unpack what Taylah's childhood looked like with a particular insight into her education and how she became a lawyer and started her doctorate. Taylah articulates the complexities of 'celebrating' what it is to be Australian and how the date represents a long history of genocide and disposition for First Nations people. Tay also suggests ways in which we can be true allies and show support. Something that was particularly nuanced for us was the conversation surrounding the pressure that First Nations people can feel when they're expected to be the mouthpiece for every political issue in this country; the assumption of being educated about every legal issue affecting Black people. To show our gratitude for Taylah's knowledge and time, Life Uncut has donated $1000 to the Aboriginal Legal Service. You can check them out here: https://www.alsnswact.org.au/ If you'd like to follow Taylah on instagram you can find her here: https://www.instagram.com/taylah_gray_/?hl=en Always was, always will be Aboriginal land

BACH UNCUT - Three's a crowd

Holy hell we’re BACKKKKK.. Can you bloody believe it? Well, we can’t either. Lot’s has changed with the Bachelor - there’s three men looking for love. Please meet **drum roll please** Felix, Jed and Thomas! Also, at the end of last season Osher sold all the old decorations on Facebook Marketplace and moved to the Goldy. This means Bach is in a new city, there’s no red carpet or fairy lights and new roses. Oh, and the guys have to propose at the finale (we think, we’re still working it all out). The show kicks off with Bachies selecting women (via rose offerings) on speed dates all around the country. Some tell the pipsqueaks to beat it (sorry Jed), some play tonsil hockey (hello Felix) and some cry (bless you Thomas). The rose holders all pack up their bags and travel to the Gold Coast to move in with Osher. Then it’s time for the first cocktail party (ep 2) which is just Felix eating Tilly’s face. We then have a group date/pool party, which is just Felix eating Naomi’s face. You may have noticed there’s a recurring theme here. Then we say goodbye to three randoms at a rose ceremony! If you’re still reading this, 10 points to you. We’re up to ep 3 and Tash drops the news that Jess (dating Felix) is polyamorous and has a boyf on the outside. Felix flips out and decides to head home and sulk as Jed takes Tash on a date as Thomas heads off with Leah. Then there’s a group date at Dreamworld (nothing happens). However at the rose ceremony, the woman have a wild brawl because of how Tash behaved. It all kicks off and I think it’s official, Tash is the villain of the season. Thoughts and prayers with the woman who left at the rose ceremony - Abby, Emma and Palen or Kalen or Falen.. If you loved this episode we would love it if you would take 30 seconds to leave a review, or go and follow @lifeuncutpodcast for more of the action.

Ask Uncut- The Mindful Orgasm

Hey Lifers, First up today, Laura wants to know how she can get even more lazy when it comes to getting to O town. Apparently you can have orgasms by using just your mind. We investigate. Then we jump into your deep, dark and dirty questions:-I met this guy out at a bar a few weeks ago and we went home together later that night. After stalking him on socials I figured out he has a fiancé and a baby.I confronted him about it and he said they were engaged but decided to call it off and just be friends just before the baby was born. However, they haven’t told anyone this as her family are religious and they are trying to navigate the situation, they still live together. I told him I can’t continue to see him unless either he can prove to me, he isn’t in a relationship or unless he tells her about me. He said he doesn’t know how to prove it and isn’t ready to tell her unless he knows if we are ‘going somewhere.' I really like this guy; sex was amazing and there is definitely something there but my gut tells me he is lying. Should I cut it off with him now before I get any more invested?-I have 2 guys on my radar, one I met online a while ago, we clicked, crazy chemistry, then he went travelling for a few months but we kept in contact regularly calling etc. I was looking forward to when he comes back (in 2 weeks) and was intending on giving it a shot with him. I’m the meantime my long-time friend from high school who we’ve been back and forth liking each other, expressed he has very strong feelings for me, initially I was thinking no but now I have strong feelings for him and the other guy, I’ve been indecisive for a ages and have no idea how to decide what the right thing to do is, do I not date anybody cause I can’t give them my full attention or do I just flip a coin? -I’m getting married next year and I don’t know if I want my dad to walk me down the aisle. One - I don’t feel totally comfortable with the concept of the father giving the bride away. I feel it’s a bit outdated and low key gives me the ick. Two- my dad & I have a good relationship but we aren’t super close.What are your thoughts on the bride walking down the aisle solo and how I should approach the conversation with my dad?-I am getting married next year in Fiji.My nearest and dearest are invited. One of my invited guests has had someone who I don’t really know nor particularly like invite herself on the holiday…I know it’s a public place but it just makes me uncomfortable as I am in Fiji to celebrate my wedding. Am I in my right to politely ask that she not come or is she entitled to come if she pleases? If you have an update on what happened after we answered one of your questions, please send it in to @lifeuncutpodcast on instagram! We'd love to do an ask uncut aftermath!Tell your mum, tell your dad, tell your dog, tell your friend and share the love because we love love! xx

Rebounds - Getting over it, by getting under it

Hey lifers Statistically (and you know we love a study), this time of year is the most common time to break up and kick start a rebound relationship so today we are unpacking the good, the bad and the ugly of rebound relationships. It's a bit of a nostalgic one because it's just the two of us taking a big deep dive on when we were rebounded with and when we've done it to others. We talk: -What rebounds look like if you're the rebounder or the reboundee -How long it takes to get over an ex -How rebounds can be really great -How they can transition from a rebound into an actual relationship But firstly, have you heard of milestoning? If you're single, there's a good chance you're doing it right now. We get into some new dating terms and trends and frankly, Britt needs to take a bit of a look at herself because she's doing pretty much all of them! If you've listened all year and you haven't done so yet, we'd really love it if you took 30 seconds to leave us a review on apple podcasts or a star rating on spotify! Tell your mum, tell your dad, tell your dog, tell your friend and share the love because we love love! xx

ASK UNCUT - Feeling DICKappointed?

Hey Lifers, We've spoken a lot about whether or not we're into 'nice' guys, but what about the available guys? Are we okay with the nice guy as long as they've got a bit of a chase to them? We unpack. Then we jump into your deep, dark and burning questions: -Is withholding a pregnancy deceitful? I'm up for a promotion at work that I think I deserve and will get, but it's for a 2 year contract. Should I tell my employer that I am in the early stages of pregnancy given that if I get the job, I won't be able to work the whole contract out -I met someone very special this year, however it has been a rollercoaster since we met (my dad died, I had an abortion, I moved overseas). He is also overseas now too but he has recently gone off to do his own thing. He said he loves me very much and wants me in his life but he doesn’t know to what extent right now. I love him so much and I keep coming back to this thought that he is “the one”. Is this naive? How do you know if someone is the one? I know I can be okay on my own but I want him in my life. -Is it normal to not be able to get over your ex's dick? I was in a relationship for 2 years and he had the greatest penis. Now whenever I sleep with someone I can't seem to be disappointed by theirs and I keep comparing it to my ex's. Is this normal? Can I get over this?

And you know the drill; tell your mum, tell your dad, tell your dog, tell your friend and share the love because we love love! xx
