In these open-minded times, one taboo has held steady: never having had sex at all. Four thirtysomething virgins explain how they deal with the stigma
Richard’s colleagues call him their work therapist. He’s empathetic and a good listener, he says – “so a lot of people tell me about their personal shit”, including the people he works with at his retail management job in the south-eastern US. But when they complain to him about their sex lives, or he sees happy couples hand-in-hand in the shop, “I think: ‘That’s not something that’s going to happen for me.’” At 31, Richard is a virgin.
If it seems as though taboos about sex have lifted in these ostensibly open-minded times, there is one that holds steady: the stigma over never having had sex. While it has become widely unacceptable to criticise someone for having too many partners, being a virgin “still seems to be something that can be only mocked or shamed or suspect”, says Richard.

A little sugar and some coconut oil is all you need to convince even the most sceptical non-vegan of the merits of this delicious pastry
A lot of people are wary of vegan pastry, but you genuinely won’t be able to tell that this pastry is vegan. It tastes buttery and melts in the mouth, thanks to the ratio of coconut oil to flour. Make sure to include the sugar, as it gives the pastry a little more flavour and helps it to brown. I prefer the tofu-based filling to egg-based quiche; all the vegans and non-vegans I’ve served it to love it.

Photographs of his Toyota are a still life of slovenliness, but are the cartons, crumbs and crumpled clothes a sign of a muddled mind?
It might prove to be the most relatable thing about the Tory leadership hopeful Boris Johnson. The photographs of his messy car – as shambolic as its owner – will be familiar to many of us. The shots of the inside of his Toyota are a still life of slovenliness, featuring empty food cartons, water bottles, crumpled clothes, discarded children’s books, crumbs and receipts. It is either homely or filthy, depending on whether or not you are the sort of person who has to apologise for the mess every time you give someone a lift. What it isn’t is prime ministerly. Margaret Thatcher, a premier with a penchant for dusting, would be appalled.
“I’m in shock,” says Lynsey Crombie, the cleaning expert known online as the Queen of Clean. “A tidy car is a tidy mind.” Crombie only uses her car a couple of times a week, so she cleans it every month. “In a car that you use every day, you should try and spend 10 minutes on it every week. Prioritise getting the clutter and rubbish out. Take out the stuff that doesn’t need to be there – do you really need to have loads of books and a sports kit that’s not been washed?” Continue reading...

• Scholes’s 140 bets included eight on United and one on Valencia
Paul Scholes has been fined and warned over his future conduct by the Football Association after placing bets worth £26,159 on football matches during his time as a director of Salford City.
The former Manchester United midfielder was found to have placed 140 bets over three and a half years, in contravention of the FA’s gambling rules. The FA said these included bets on the outcome of United matches – at a time when his former teammates and fellow Salford investors Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt were working there – and one involving Valencia, when they were coached by Scholes’s friends and fellow Salford investors Gary and Phil Neville.

With rooms from £45 in the centre of a city with a reputation for expensive accommodation, this new budget hotel chain is a welcome arrival
Early evening at the Z Hotel Bath and the reception and lounge are full of clinking and chatter with people guzzling wine and munching cheese. It could be a special event – a conference maybe? Except, the crowd is an unusual mix: glamorous hen parties, American tourists and young couples.
Daily, between 5pm and 8pm, it’s cheese and wine time at the hotel – and they come free for guests. Far from dry slices with curled up corners, this sort-of aperitivo time features local producers (Somerset goat’s cheese and Paxton’s Cave-Aged cheddar, from Gloucestershire) and decent wine: a choice of two reds, two whites and a rosé. No wonder everyone’s filling their boots. Continue reading...
