    This Morning sex therapist guest, 57, accused of rape told woman his penis was ‘like a laser beam’ which ‘cuts trauma’

    A This Morning therapist accused of raping a client said his penis was “like a laser beam” which could “burn up trauma”, a court heard.Michael Lousada is being sued by Ella Janneh, 37, who visited him after suffering panic attacks during consensual sex due to being abused as a child.Ella Janneh, said she was raped and sexually assaulted by Mr Lousada in his clinic in 2016Credit: PAMr Lousada, who has appeared as a guest on This Morning, denies the allegations, saying the sexual activity was consensual and part of ‘legitimate’ therapeutic activityCredit: You TubeMs Janneh, who has waived her right to anonymity, claims during a session on August 18, 2016, she was raped and sexually assaulted by Mr Lousada in his clinic in Belsize Park, London.She is now bringing a civil claim against the therapist in the High Court after the Crown Prosecution Service said it would not pursue criminal charges in 2018.Mr Lousada, who has appeared as a guest on This Morning, denies the allegations.He says the sexual activity was consensual and part of “legitimate” therapeutic activity.Read More showbiz newsAt the start of a six-day trial in London on Friday, Nina Ross, representing Ms Janneh, said Mr Lousada assaulted his client during a “body work” session.The alleged attack came after he claimed to use penetration “as a therapeutic technique”.She said: “She did not have the mental capacity to consent … nor did she have the freedom to consent due to the power dynamic inherent in a therapeutic relationship, nor did she have all the information she needed to consent because he gave her no warning.”She has thought of the incident as a rape from the day it happened.”Most read in Showbiz”There is no evidence before the court of why the defendant decided to take that risk, or what possible benefits there were for a trauma victim like the claimant, or indeed anyone.”‘BODY WORK’ SESSIONThe court was told that Ms Janneh first visited Mr Lousada in 2011 and again in 2012 after suffering panic symptoms during consensual sex, which she believed stemmed from abuse as a child.No sexual activity took place at that time.She returned in 2016 for the “body work” session which she believed was similar to a physiotherapy session, coupled with talking therapy, Ms Ross said.Giving her evidence in court, Ms Janneh said she had a phone call with Mr Lousada where she explained the nature of her panic attacks and that she wanted to understand how to overcome the problem.She said: “I absolutely did not ask him to work on penetration. I never, ever, ever would have asked him to penetrate me.”When questioned whether she had suggested penetration be used as a therapy technique, Ms Janneh said: “That is deeply untrue. It is the express opposite.”PENIS ‘ABSORB THE TRAUMA’In court documents, Ms Janneh claimed that Mr Lousada told her his penis was, “like a laser beam” and that it could “burn up trauma”.She also claims he said he should use his penis to “absorb the trauma”.The incident caused her to suffer a panic attack, leaving her unable to communicate and “incapable of providing valid and informed consent” as a result.Ms Janneh, who now lives in Melbourne, Australia, reported the incident to the Met Police a day later.No charges were brought and the case was dropped in May 2018.As well as taking legal action against Mr Lousada, Ms Janneh is also suing Anteros Books Ltd, of which he was a director, for damages over claims of assault, trespass to the person and negligence.’RELEASE OF ENERGY’Barristers for Mr Lousada said while he accepts that penetration occurred, its purpose “was not to have intercourse, but to accommodate the claimant’s wish to work with penetration”.They said he believed the the session was “about release of energy”.In written submissions, lawyer David Boyle said that Ms Janneh did not fully disclose her past trauma and her vulnerable status, was aware of what the session involved and repeatedly provided “clear, unequivocal consent”.In his notes following the session, Mr Lousada wrote that Ms Janneh “left feeling empowered and optimistic”.Mr Boyle continued: “The defendant slowly and carefully proceeded with the treatment session. At each stage, he asked for clear, verbal, consent to the next step proposed.”At each stage, the claimant responded with a clear ‘yes’, failing which the defendant did not and would not proceed.”I absolutely did not ask him to work on penetration. I never, ever, ever would have asked him to penetrate meElla Janneh speaking in court on FridayHe said Mr Lousada offered clients a “range of activities” including workshops, talking therapy, him “massaging the client, either non-intimately or intimately”, and penetration “if so required”.While he acknowledged that Mr Lousada’s activities “may not align with societal norms”, his work was a “legitimate activity”.He said Mr Lousada had worked with “approximately 1,000 separate clients” during “several thousand appointments”.READ MORE SUN STORIES”Approximately 30 to 40 of whom he has engaged in penile penetration”, Mr Boyle told the court.The trial continues.

    Jamie Laing makes startling confession about sex with wife Sophie Habboo and reveals they’re having marriage counselling

    HE’S only been married to his stunning wife for a year but Radio 1’s Jamie Laing admits things have already fizzled out in the bedroom.Former Made In Chelsea co-stars Jamie and Sophie Habboo tied the knot in London and went on to have a huge ­celeb-packed bash in Marbella, Spain.Radio 1’s Jamie Laing has admitted he is average in the bedroomCredit: PALaing is married to fellow Made In Chelsea star Sophie HabbooCredit: RexBut the 35-year-old jokes that he “can’t be bothered” to perform any more.In a hilariously candid interview, he confessed: “Sophie did say I was bog standard at sex and that is probably a fair description. You get worse as you get married. You become lazy.“I used to start doing joined-up handwriting then I thought, ‘I can’t be bothered with that as it’s quicker for me to not do it joined up’, I’m a bit like that in the bedroom. I don’t give up half way but I do remember that once I rolled on top of Sophie and she said, ‘Oh, get on with it’.”But while Jamie may be letting things slide between the sheets, the presenter makes sure he doesn’t slack off in their relationship.READ MORE CELEB NEWSHe suggested the couple start seeing a marriage counsellor and they have therapy together twice a month.He explained: “I said to Sophie, ‘Look, 40 or 50 per cent of marriages end in divorce, I think it’ll be really good to do’, so we still go every other week and I think ­therapy brings self-awareness.“It opens you up and makes you more empathetic. It makes you basically not become a sociopath and it allows you to have another opinion.‘She’s my ride or die’“You’ve got to communicate ­for ever, otherwise these things boil up, and going to therapy gives us the best chance of surviving this up-and-down life we’re going to have. So twice a month we sit down for an hour, and I’ve learned lots of lessons.Most read in Celebrity“I found out that most of the time my wife is right, and that I’m very lucky to be with her, because my brain is all over the place 24/7.“It’s made me calmer, with Sophie especially, as I’m generally more volatile than her.”Inside Jamie Laing and Sophie Habboo’s incredible £—a-night Honeymoon villa after disastrous journey, The couple have also learnt that it’s not just about how you get on — but how you resolve things.Jamie added: “The most important thing is to really understand why you’re fighting and to decide if it’s really important or not.“And if they are feeling so ­adamant about one thing, maybe try to see their point of view. But the biggest thing is if you’re in the wrong, say sorry, which I’m very good at.”She is the kindest, most empathetic person I’ve ever met and she does not have a bad bone in her bodyJamie and fashion designer Sophie, 30, met on the E4 reality show, cementing their love on a 2019 series trip in South Africa.He said: “We started off as best friends, then about three years into our friendship we were on holiday together and she came out in a bikini. I was like, ‘Oh my God, you’re super hot’, and I was suddenly like, ‘Oh my God, wait, you’re not just my friend’, although I don’t think it was quite as profound a moment for her.“I think for her it was, ‘Why is my friend staring at me?’”The pair host the Newlyweds ­podcast together — where they take a warts-and-all approach to discussing their relationship.And it is clear Jamie still dotes on Sophie.He gushes: “She is the kindest, most empathetic person I’ve ever met and she does not have a bad bone in her body.“We tease and make fun of each other but there’s also a huge amount of respect. And the best thing about being married is that you’re part of a tribe. She’s my ride or die and being married to her has also stopped me window shopping.“Before, if you’re in a relationship, you can very easily go ‘You’re p***ing me off today. You know what? I’m done here’. But when you’re married, it’s very much like you’re a team.”Jamie also leans on his best friend Spencer Matthews, 35, for support.The former lothario married Vogue Williams, 38, in 2018 and the pair now have three children.Jamie said: “Spencer is the greatest dad and husband. Him and Vogue are amazing. They’re incredible.“The fact they’ve got three kids and they’re doing all the stuff they’re doing and working so hard, I mean, it’s crazy. They said to us, ‘Just make sure you love each other all the time’. That’s great advice, as it’s really important to separate the ­hectic madness of life and spend quality time with one another.”The pair got married in 2023Credit: GettyJamie and his co-host Vick Hope, middle, took over Radio 1’s Drivetime Show last monthCredit: James Watkins/BBCLike his former Made In Chelsea partner in crime, Jamie hopes to have his own family one day soon.He jokes: “I want so many kids that at Christmas I could create a sleigh and attach them all to it and go, ‘Mush’, and they can drag me down the garden.“If I have a son, I’m going to name him Blaze Laing, so he’ll sound like a porn star or a race car driver.“I said to Sophie, ‘If we have kids, what do you want them to have of mine?’ and she said, ‘Just your personality. That’s it’.“And I said, ‘Not my looks, my eyes?’ and she said, ‘Nope, nothing. Just your personality’.”Jamie and his co-host Vick Hope, 34, took over Radio 1’s Drivetime Show last month.And Jamie, who competed in Strictly in 2019, insists that Sophie is not worried about him working so closely with gorgeous Vick.He said: “I did Strictly Come Dancing and there were no issues there.So I think being with Vick is fine. And even if I did have an inkling towards Vick, I don’t think I’m her type.”And Vick’s superstar DJ husband, Calvin Harris, 40, clearly thinks there is nothing to worry about.Therapy opens you up and makes you more empathetic. It makes you basically not become a sociopath and it allows you to have another opinionJamieJamie admitted: “Calvin saw a picture of me at the Brits and Vick went, ‘Oh, that’s Jamie, my co-host’, and Calvin went, ‘Oh I know him, but who is that standing next to him?’ and Vick went, ‘That’s his wife’, and Calvin said, ‘Oh, I thought he was gay’.”As the great-great grandson of 1st Baronet Sir Alexander Grant, who created the McVitie’s biscuit empire, Jamie has received a backlash for being “too posh” for Radio 1.But he said: “There’s a real problem with the class system in the UK. If my only hurdle that I have to jump over is that I’m posh, then I think I’m doing OK. I am posh and if people like that, great. If they don’t like that, I can’t do anything about it.”And it turns out there are plenty who enjoy listening to him, as last month Jamie launched his new celebrity interview podcast Great Company, chatting with stars including singer Paloma Faith, TV’s Jay Blades, comic Jo Brand and magician Dynamo.He said: “As a kid I used to do chat shows with teddy bears. I feel pretty blessed, pretty lucky and pretty happy. What I’ve realised is that happiness comes from the people you connect with.“I’m very lucky, my family are alive, they’re healthy and well, I have a beautiful wife and great friends.”

    The 9 Best Natural Lubes For A Happy Vagina

    It’s no secret that, for lots of people, lube is a game-changer when it comes to sex. So you’d probably assume that lubes (‘normal’ and natural lubes) are pretty safe (even good) for your vagina given their myriad other benefits — and most are. But you need to proceed with caution and familiarise yourself with a few things before you use them. Here’s what you need to know about natural lubes.

    Who Should Use Natural Lubes?

    “The traditional and most commonly used lubes are water- or silicone-based which won’t disrupt the vagina’s delicate pH balance, which can cause an infection,” says Dr Sherry A. Ross, a gynaecologist and author of She-ology and She-ology. The She-quel. Let’s Continue the Conversation.

    But — and this is a big but — if the ingredients used to create the scents, warming capabilities, and flavours of some lubes are doing you more harm than good by irritating your sensitive skin down there, you might find you’re better off with a natural alternative.

    What Does Natural Actually Mean?

    Now this, of course, opens up a whole new world of uncertainties. With so many lubes on the market claiming to be “natural” and “organic,” it’s hard to tell what those labels actually mean for you and your vag.

    Here are the facts: It all comes down to ingredients. The fewer ingredients, the more natural the lube.

    “In general, both natural and organic lubricants do not contain those extra non-pure additives including synthetic chemicals, dyes, preservatives, artificial fragrances and other toxins,” says Ross.

    What’s The Difference Between Natural And Organic Lube?

    The notable difference between “natural” and “organic” lubes really comes down to how the ingredients in each are sourced and whether they’ve been certified.

    Organic lubes are made from certified ingredients while natural ones are not. To be truly organic, a lube’s ingredients won’t have interacted with chemicals such as pesticides, fertilisers, and GMOs.

    LOVE is said to be better the second time around – and that certainly seems to be the case for Stormzy and Maya Jama. Since reuniting in October – four years on from their 2019 break-up – the rapper has splashed a fortune on the Love Island host, 29, and appears to be her biggest cheerleader online. Stormzy and Maya made their first public appearance together since reconciling at the British Fashion Awards in NovemberCredit: RexThe rapper treated his other half to a spa day because she was feeling ‘down’Credit: instagram/@mayajamaThe beautiful bouquet had a sweet note that read ‘I pray you smile a little bit more today x’Credit: instagram/@mayajamaThis week, Maya revealed Stormzy booked a spa day for her and a pal because she was “feeling down”. On arrival, she was greeted with a beautiful bouquet with a note that read: “I pray you smile a little bit more today, X.”It’s one of many touching gestures from the “humbled” Own It rapper, 30, who previously described losing her as “probably the biggest loss a man can have”.As the romance cranks up a notch, relationship expert Jo Hemmings predicts it could be a sign that a proposal is on the cards.She tells The Sun: “Back together after a four-year split, it seems that this Stormzy truly appreciates his wonderful girlfriend.READ MORE ON SHOWBIZ“He’s showering her with lavish gifts, but more importantly he is thoughtful and considerate these days, even treating Maya to a spa day when she was feeling down.”He knows he’s seriously lucky to get a second chance with her – and there’s no let up on the effort he’s putting in with being thoughtful, considerate and putting her needs before his. “As well as lavish gifts and generous, complimentary posts on Instagram, this feels like ‘proposal prep’ to me. “He’s taking his time, there’s no need to rush into it – he wants her to be as sure as him – but the romantic direction of travel is definitely pointing to making that ultimate commitment.”Most read in CelebrityHere we look back at Stormzy and Maya’s romance and how since reuniting the rapper, he has been the ‘perfect boyfriend’. ‘Couple goals’Maya and Stormzy were both fledgling stars when they met back in 2014 at an event in London, but the future Love Island host later admitted: “If I’m really honest, I knew I fancied him from the start.”Bugzy Malone reignites bitter feud with Stormzy as he takes a swipe at Maya Jama on new trackIt was a big year for them both, with her cast as the presenter for MTV’s The Wrap Up and him gaining notoriety on the UK music scene.  After what Maya described as “a childish phase” where she dropped “obvious hints” about liking him and then “taking it back” they started dating a year later. Fans branded them “couple goals” and they quickly became one of showbiz’s hottest powerful pairing – but to them, it was “just a normal relationship”.Maya told Shopping With Keith Lemon: “I always said it was like a normal relationship but people wanted to look at it more and talk about it more.”During their four-year romance, Stormzy celebrated his beau in the lyrics of his songs including 2016 hit Birthday Girl and she appeared in the music video for his hit Big For Your Boots a year later.’I was a boy’Maya and Stormzy celebrating his 25th birthday in 2018Credit: Getty – ContributorBut by 2019, the romance ended and Maya moved out of the south west London pad they shared amid claims Stormzy was unfaithful. It was alleged that he cheated on the star with friend Jorja Smith, which he denied but admitted to being “disrespectful” to his beau in candid interviews. Stormzy told GQ: “It showed me that I was a boy and I do not want to go any further as a boy. I’ve seen how that manifests in other people and I don’t want to be like that.”Also on the BBC show Louis Theroux Interviews…, the rapper admitted he “didn’t do what a man should do, fully appreciate love and care for his woman”.I would love to be the man who she needs, I would love to do all the things that make this work. I want to marry her, I want to have her children.StormzyHe added: “You make a mistake and you lose someone you loved, someone you cared for, someone who is special to you.”Jo says that “fame crept up on the both of them” but Stormzy’s admission that he behaved badly set him on a path to growing up and winning back Maya’s heart.She explains: “While he denies that he was unfaithful he did admit to Louis Theroux that his behaviour could have been better and that he made mistakes. “By owning those errors of judgement, he claimed it ‘was probably the biggest catalyst for [his] growth as a man.’ He also said he didn’t want to ever feel like that again.”During an interview with Charlamagne Tha God, Stormzy hinted at his hope for a second chance. He said: “I would love to be the man who she needs, I would love to do all the things that make this work.

    The Gentlemen’s Kaya Scodelario spent night on the street at 4 & was troubled teen before making £1.2m as Hollywood star

    SHE’S the star of Guy Ritchie’s Netflix series The Gentlemen and has a Hollywood hit list which includes Maze Runner and Pirates Of The Caribbean 5.But Kaya Scodelario – who first found fame in Skins at 14 – was forced to sleep on the streets when she was just four and has fought her way up from a poverty-stricken childhood to become a screen star, commanding up to £1.2million a movie.Kaya with co-star Theo James in the Netflix hitCredit: RexKaya says her mum struggled but was ‘my inspiration’She starred with Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean 5Credit: ©Walt Disney Studios / Supplied by LMKThe 31-year-old has also overcome a sexual assault at 12, troubled teen years which saw her leave home at 16 and, most recently, a split from husband Ben Walker, the father of her two children, after an eight year marriage.But the plucky star – who plays drug queen Susie Glass in the action-packed Netflix series – says acting was a lifelong dream and “the only thing I was ever good at.”She sees success as a way of paying back her mum, Brazilian-born Katia, for the sacrifices she made while raising her daughter alone,“I want to give a life back to her as she gave her whole life up for me,” she has said.READ MORE IN FEATURES“She had to play the role of mother and father at the same time, and she did it to perfection. I managed to find a way through because of her. My mother is my biggest inspiration.”Hard childhoodKatia split from Kaya’s dad, Roger Humphrey, when she was just one and, three years later,  she left East Sussex to move to London, taking her four-year-old daughter with her.Homeless, the pair were forced to sleep on the streets for their first night before being given a council flat in north London, where Katia struggled to make ends meet, working several jobs and battling depression.“Mum built a life for me in a difficult place, at a difficult time,” she said in 2017.Most read in Celebrity“When I was growing up, we didn’t have much money. What was important in my house was to have food on the table, be happy and have our family.”Kaya also struggled with dyslexia and describes herself as “painfully shy child, very insecure, very anxious”Vinnie Jones explains his upcoming role on Netflix drama The GentlemenShe told Hollywood Reporter:  “I was really bullied as a young child, and I changed schools a couple of times. But, I always had this dream that I wanted to act. It was the only thing I was ever brave enough to put my hand up and put myself forward for.“Growing up in England, being very working class and having an immigrant single mother, I didn’t think that people like me could do things like that. “I knew I’d never be able to afford to go to drama school or have any coaching. So, I kind of accepted that it wasn’t going to happen at the very mature age of 14, which is quite depressing.”The star had a tough upbringingCredit: InstagramKaya at the premiere of the The GentlemenCredit: RexKaya runs a drugs empire in the Netflix hitSexual assaultKaya was estranged from dad Roger until 2010, a year before his death, and left home at 16 after relations with her mum became strained, although they are now close.“She raised me alone and she suffered depression most of her life,” she has said. “It can be very dark, very difficult, especially as a teenager. It put a lot of pressure on our relationship.“I wanted to help but I was 16 and probably not saying the right thing.”My best friend’s boyfriend was stabbed in Stoke Newington a couple of months before I got offered the roleKaya ScodelarioAs well as her difficult homelife, Kaya was a victim of a sexual assault, when she was 12 – causing a rift with her Brazilian ‘family members’.In 2018, as the #MeToo movement began to gain momentum, she revealed the “horrific” assault in order to help other abused children to speak out earlier.“It’s taken me 13 years to say #MeToo,” she wrote on Twitter, adding her alleged attacker is “still protected by ‘family members’ in Brazil. They’ve told lies to papers to try to silence me.”She added that others who had spoke out gave her the courage to do the same and told Harper’s Bazaar: “I remember thinking that if I was 12 years old and I had this horrific thing happen to me but I saw a woman I admired speaking up about it, it would have made me feel less guilty. “It would have inspired me to think, ‘This won’t hold me back, this is something that has happened but I am not a victim.’”So I thought if I can do that for one person then I owe it to my 12-year-old self.”Age lieKaya’s life changed overnight when she landed the role of Effy in the gritty teen drama Skins, at the age of 14.She later revealed she almost lost out on the part after a lying about her age backfired – because they thought she was too old.After being told about the open auditions for the show, she dropped by on the way home from school to see who was lining up, but didn’t actually go in.She was approached by producer Bryan Elsley after he spotted her sitting across the road. “For some reason, he came over and asked me if I wanted to audition. I said, “Yes,” but I knew I was too young because I was told you had to be 16 and up,” she said. “So I lied and said that I was 16 and a half, and he let me audition. Then they called back and said that I was too old so I admitted that I lied about my age. “Luckily, they gave me the opportunity. I happened to be in the right place at the right time.”Kaya was cast at 14Credit: Channel 4Kaya (centre) played Effy and dated Jack O’Connell (centre left) who played CookCredit: HandoutShe starred alongside Billie Piper in True LoveCredit: BEffy became one of the longest running characters, from 2007 to 2012, and had hard hitting storylines – which included sex scenes and teen drinking – which Kaya said reflected the life she had known growing up on a council estate.She said: “My best friend’s boyfriend was stabbed in Stoke Newington a couple of months before I got offered the role.“I know kids who live like this.”She also experimented with drink and drugs growing up, although her mum was strict and insisted she was home by 8pm every night, because “she didn’t want me to get pregnant like all the people around me.”“My mum’s quite open-minded. She’s Brazilian and I think that helps. I always knew about sex, about drugs, about religion,” she adds.“I did go through a phase of smoking weed but I told her about it and she convinced me to stop. I never smoked it again.“She’s even made me promise never to do a nude scene. That’s my excuse, producers!”Kaya’s stint in Skins also led to a role in the BBC drama True Love, in 2012, where she played a schoolgirl seduced by a female teacher, played by Billie Piper, with whom she shared a kiss.Famous first loveStarring as lovers in the Skins led to an offscreen romance with Jack O’Connell, who she called her “first love.”“We were so young and at the same time both becoming famous,” she said.“I was completely in love with him. If he’d told me to jump off a bridge, I would have.”Jack – who has since starred in Unbroken and Ferrari – “broke my heart” and she says she “spent a whole week in my room crying” after their split in 2009.She went on to date Shameless star Elliot Tittensor for five years, and supported him when he was arrested after an incident in 2010. The actor drove at an 18-year-old who was following Kaya, knocking him down and causing brain damage and was later fined £750 for driving without insurance.The pair broke up in 2014 but, after the injured man launched  a civil suit for damages, she gave evidence on Elliot’s behalf via video link from Australia – where she was filming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Kaya dated Shameless star Elliot for five yearsCredit: GettyKaya and ex-husband Ben met in 2014Credit: GC ImagesThe former couple have two children together, now aged seven and twoCredit: InstagramIt was also in Australia that Kaya met actor Benjamin Walker, her co-star in The King’s Daughter, in 2014. Benjamin, then 31, had just divorced Meryl Streep’s daughter Mamie Gummer and quickly fell for the then 22-year-old BritHe proposed after just six months – when he presented her with a Cartier love bracelet for Christmas then realised he “wanted to buy me an engagement ring” – and they got married at New York City Town Hall in 2015.I was completely in love with him.
