I’m going to out on a limb and guess that research showing that men are 27 per cent more likely to have an orgasm during a sexual encounter will not come as a surprise to most women. For while most women will say that having an orgasm is, quite frankly, lovely, it’s also a bit of an open secret that we often don’t expect them as par for the course. The reasons for this are many, but what is genuinely surprising is that the orgasm gap is not that difficult to close.

The description “65-year-old pensioner” hardly springs to mind when you look at Christie Brinkley… nevertheless, on paper, she is. But the supermodel, who has graced more than 500 magazine covers, says thanks to clean living the years mean little to her or many women of her generation. Christie first rose to fame in the 70s as a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl. Four decades on she is playing Roxie Hart in a US tour of Chicago – a role Renee Zellweger played when she was 33 years old in the Oscar-winning movie version. And Christie proclaims proudly she has the stamina to keep up with all the “razzle dazzle” that the dancing demands. Christie reckons exercise and good diet, as well as relishing life and learning, are her secret.

Big deal. What is the issue? Our two best-known female public faces attended the Firmus Energy Local Women Magazine Awards. They were asked to stand together for a picture. If one of them had said 'No thanks, I'd rather not', now that would have been a story. It would have looked petty, and there's nothing the media loves more than two women fighting.

A lot of mums know all too well about the frustrating need to cross their legs when laughing or sneezing. And most think it just comes as part of the package when they become a mother. But this Leicestershire businesswoman, and mum, says the fact that issues with pelvic floor muscles are 'normal' for most women makes her angry. Julie Čolan, from Market Harborough, is on a one-woman mission to raise awareness of pelvic floor issues, make the subject less taboo, and help women to prevent the problem.
