    Barbra Streisand reveals flirty relationship with ‘charming’ Charles & opens up on love affairs with top celebs

    The King, 74, is said to have had Streisand, 81, as his “only pin-up” while studying as a youngster at Cambridge University and described her as “devastatingly attractive” with “great sex appeal”.
    His admiration is even said to have made Princess Diana tell an aide that she would not have been surprised if the two had an affair.
    Commenting on Charles’s remark about her “sex appeal”, The Way We Were singer Streisand says she is glad she did not know about it when they first met because it would have made her self-conscious.
    She explains in her book that they initially linked up when Charles was on duty with the Royal Navy in San Diego in 1974.

    He made the brief trip from San Diego to Los Angeles, where his crush was working on the sequel to her hit 1968 movie Funny Girl.
    When asked who he had wanted to see in LA, Charles is said to have replied he wanted to meet Barbra, “the woman behind the voice”.
    Photographers captured the moment Streisand offered him a sip from her mug of tea, which she says was treated at the time like an international incident.
    Barbra writes: “The fact is, both Prince Charles and I are shy, but somehow we still managed to connect, because that proved to be the beginning of an unexpected friendship.”

    In the book, she tells of her regret that she was not as gracious as she could have been because she had to get back to work.
    The pair met up again when Streisand performed at Wembley Arena in 1994, with Charles watching from the Royal Box.
    The then Prince of Wales also arr­­anged to go backstage before the show.
    Streisand performed Disney song Someday My Prince Will Come and told the audience how they first met, quipping: “Who knows? If I had been nicer to him, I could have been the first real Jewish princess!”
    The next day she rec­eiv­ed a bouquet from him.
    Barbra writes: “It was simply signed ‘Charles’. And the flowers were fresh from his garden!
    “He wrote, ‘It was such a treat to attend your concert last night — you were wonderful and I adored every minute!’ ”
    Streisand adds: “The Prince is the most ­gra­cious host and made every­thing easy for me, even sending his chauffeur to The Dorchester hotel to pick me up.”
    Charles and Barbra saw each other again for tea later that year at LA’s exclusive Hotel Bel-Air.
    Streisand says they shared an interest in “gardens and organic food and the health of the planet” and that Charles later sent her organic oat biscuits from his Duchy Orig­inals brand.
    In 1995 — the same year that Diana admitt­ed in a contro­­versial BBC inter­view with Martin Bashir that she had been unfaithful to Charles — he invit­ed Streisand to stay at his High­grove residence in Gloucestershire.
    The pair sat next to each other for a candlelit dinner in a tent with “lots of interesting talk about art and architecture”.
    ‘Most gracious host’
    The singer says she slept later in a beautiful bedroom with a four-poster bed and the following day, after lunch, Charles walked her around Highgrove, showing her the paintings of his ancestors.
    More recently, Streisand says, Charles gave her a card with one of his watercolour paintings on it for her birthday, and sent a video message for her 80th last year.
    She goes on to describe the friendship as “extraordinary”.
    She recalls an exchange she had when she met the Queen in 1975 at the London premiere of her movie Funny Lady, which she was working on when she first met Charles the year before.
    When she asked the Queen why only women had to wear gloves to shake the royal’s hand, Elizabeth replied she would have to think about it but suggested it was down to tradition.
    Streisand also reveals that following a scare in London during her pregnancy with son Jason Gould, now 56, she visited the Queen’s gynaecologist.
    The memoir, an excerpt of which has already been published by Vanity Fair magazine, also details Streisand’s love affairs with high-profile figures, including Miami Vice actor Don Johnson and tennis star Andre Agassi, plus a one-night stand — probably — with Hollywood heart-throb Warren Beatty.
    She says she was besotted with Johnson, now 73, and that their romance in the late 1980s made her feel like a high school girl who was going out with the captain of the football team.
    But as the relationship began to cool, she phoned him only for his ex-wife, Melanie Griffith, to answer.
    It brought the romance to a close, with Johnson going on to remarry Griffith in 1989.
    Barbra recalls: “I called him in Miami one day, and Melanie answered the phone.
    “They had been married briefly a dozen years earlier, and she often called when I was at Don’s house.
    “At that point she was in rehab, and Don had con­quered his own drug habit and was trying to help.
    Love affairs
    “I had no problem with him talking to her, but I did have a problem with him not having the courtesy to tell me the truth about their current relationship.
    “I can’t be with a man who is not straight with me emotionally.
    “So that was it.
    “The romance was over, and it was fun while it lasted.”
    Streisand says that to this day when she sees Johnson at parties, he whispers “I love you” in her ear, but she never says it back.
    Her fling with Agassi, 28 years her junior, also clearly left a mark.
    The singer says she did not even know who the tennis ace was when Las Vegas casino tycoon Steve Wynn told her the star was an admirer.
    Agassi, 53, later called her to say how much he had admired her 1991 film The Prince Of Tides — and they were on the phone for two hours.
    Barbra says: “It was a completely unexpected relationship, and it was fun.
    “He sent me six dozen roses after one dinner.
    “He came out to the ranch.
    “I re­member playing tennis with him as my partner in doubles, and I was trying so hard that I tore my meniscus (knee cartilage).
    “I actually heard it pop, but I didn’t want to stop, even to ice it, as I didn’t want to look like a wimp.”
    Her time with actor Beatty, 86, was obviously less memorable.
    Describing how she was recently talking politics on the phone with him, she says he told her he remembered why they broke up.
    She had to ask when they had been together. And when she hung up, she wondered if she had ever slept with him.
    She writes that she “kind of” remembers, adding: “I guess I did. Probably once.”

    Barbra also writes about a love affair with her friend Joan Collins’s ex-husband Anthony Newley.
    She explains how she admired the British actor and singer’s “Cockney charm”.
    She broke off the relationship after Newley did something that hurt her, but she does not say what.
    Streisand says they began sleeping together in 1969 after he announced his separation from Collins and she announced hers from first husband Elliott Gould.
    But she tells of her regret when decades later, in 1992, Newley’s agent gave her a disc with lyrics he had written about her in which he admitted she had been too much woman for him.
    Streis­and says that despite being deeply touched, she did not reach out to her ex-lover.
    Happy to be in England
    He passed away in 1999 aged 67.
    Streisand also reveals she is always happy to be in England as she loves “every­thing British”.

    Brand has faced a series of serious accusations from a number of women, with Met Police confirming they are investigating claims.
    The comedian was accused of one rape and sexual assault when four women made allegations to the Sunday Times and Channel 4’s Dispatches programme.
    A slew of further claims then emerged as women revealed their stories to newspapers and the BBC. 
    Brand has vigorously denied allegations made against him. 
    Read more on Russell Brand
    Now, a lawsuit has been filed against Brand accusing him of sexually assaulting a film extra – named only as Jane Doe – on the New York City set of the romantic comedy Arthur.
    Brand tied the knot with American singer-songwriter Katy Perry in October 2010 just three months after the alleged assault.
    It marks the first accusation against Brand leveled in court.
    It was brought in state court under New York’s Adult Survivors Act, which gives accusers a one-year window to sue over alleged sexual abuse even if statutes of limitations have expired.
    Most read in Showbiz
    Jane Doe said she was hired to appear as a cast extra in July 2010.
    The lawsuit claims Brand was drunk during production and exposed himself to Jane Doe as he sat at a table staring at her, “openly and obviously in the presence of everyone on set”.
    Jane Doe then claims Brand followed her into a bathroom where he forced her to perform sex acts on him.
    The lawsuit says a production crew member stood directly outside.
    The accuser says the assault caused “severe psychological injuries” and economic losses.
    The suit seeks unspecified money damages from Brand on grounds of assault, battery, false imprisonment and infliction of emotional distress.
    Warner Bros Pictures, which distributed Arthur was also named as a defendant – along with other companies involved in the film production.
    They were accused of negligence and of aiding and abetting Brand by tolerating his misconduct on the set. More

    Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler accused of sexual assault by second woman who claims star ‘groped and kissed’ her

    AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler has been accused for a second time of sexual assault against a minor in the 1970s.The singer, 75, allegedly assaulted the 17-year-old model by kissing and dry-humping against her will when he was 27.

    Jeanne Bellino claims to have suffered “permanent emotional distress” after the alleged assault when she met Steven Tyler through a mutual friend at a hotel in New York.
    It comes nearly a year after he was accused of sexual assault of another minor in the mid-1970s by a woman claiming to be his former girlfriend.
    Bellino alleges he forced her into a phone booth while they walked down a street in Manhattan and “stuck his tongue down her throat”.
    The suit, seen by Rolling Stone, claims Tyler “held her captive” as people walked past outside after she asked a question about one of his songs which annoyed him.
    The lawsuit claims: “While holding her captive, Tyler stuck his tongue down her throat, and put his hands upon her body, her breasts, her buttocks, and her genitals, moving and removing clothing and pinning her against the wall of the phone booth.
    “As Tyler was mauling and groping Plaintiff, he was humping her pretending to have sex with Plaintiff. 
    “Others stood by outside the phone booth laughing and as passersby watched and witnessed, nobody in the entourage intervened.”
    It goes on to explain that eventually Bellino was able to free herself from the phone booth but stayed with the group because she was relying on a friend for transportation.

    The suit continues: “Tyler’s penis was erect and it was evident to her as he rubbed it against her that he was not wearing underwear and wearing thin pants. 
    “Plaintiff fought back and struggled to be free but Tyler restrained her.”
    When the group returned to the Warwick Hotel, Tyler allegedly kissed Bellino and grinded up against her again, against her will.
    He supposedly told her he’d call her up to his room when he was ready, which he allegedly did via an associate.
    Bellino, who was apparently sobbing and shaking, said she shook her head at the associate and fled the hotel when the call came.
    She claims that she “couldn’t talk and was paralysed” as a doorman “flung her” into a cab outside the hotel.
    It’s claimed when she returned home she told her sister all the allegations. 
    Bellino claims that this was her first sexual experience and she weighed about 115 pounds at the time.
    She was also allegedly hospitalised following the incident and medicated as a result, still requiring medication now almost 50 years later.
    The suit reads that Bellino “suffered and will continue to suffer, great pain of mind and body, severe and permanent emotional distress, physical manifestations of emotional distress, embarrassment, humiliation, physical, personal & psychological injuries”.
    Julia Holcomb, who claimed to be Tyler’s former girlfriend, accused him of sexual assault in the mid-1970s in December 2022.
    She said she had a sexual relationship with Tyler that began when she was underage, according to the lawsuit obtained by Rolling Stone.

    Tyler was accused of sexual assault, sexual battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress by Holcomb.

    Robbie Williams in shock plastic surgery confession as he claims he’s got ‘manopause’ & reveals health toll of partying

    ROBBIE Williams says he is going through the “manopause” — battling thinning hair, reduced sex drive, insomnia and lethargy.Ahead of his 50th birthday in February, the superstar singer believes years of partying have left him “knackered” — and, crucially, deprived of essential hormones.

    The dad of four tells The Sun in an exclusive interview: “The hair is thinning, the testosterone has left the building, the serotonin is not really here and the dopamine said goodbye a long time ago.
    “I’ve used up all of the natural good stuff. I’ve got the manopause.
    “My daughter says to me, ‘Daddy’s lazy’. I don’t like the term ‘lazy’ as that’s how I was described when I was younger.
    “The reality is that I’m just f***ing knackered from what I did to myself in the Nineties and bits of the 2000s.”
    READ MORE ON Robbie Williams
    Robbie, married to actress Ayda Field, has previously spoken about his plummeting sex drive.
    And he has opened up again in typically honest form ahead of a new four-part Netflix documentary.
    He has beaten an addiction to sleeping pill Zopiclone, but reveals: “I have a different sleep pattern to other people.
    “I’m magnetically drawn to 4am and falling asleep at six and there’s nothing I can do about it.
    Most read in Celebrity
    “I go to bed at 11pm and I’m just lying there completely awake and completely alert until 5am.
    “It’s one of the banes of Ayda’s existence that she doesn’t get me until 1pm.”
    The male menopause — or andropause — can develop in men in their late 40s and early 50s, according to the NHS.
    Typical symptoms include mood swings, loss of sex drive and muscle mass, difficulty sleeping and poor short-term memory.
    A slow decline in testosterone levels can be one contributing factor, while another can be hypogonadism, where the testes produce few or no hormones.
    He says watching his new documentary — entitled Robbie Williams — was like witnessing “a traumatic car crash in slow-mo . . . surreal”.
    It is, indeed, gripping viewing — and at times hard to watch.
    Hours of never-before-seen footage includes clips of him drinking and on drugs during his Take That days, which are recounted in candid fashion.
    Despite his global fame, multi-millions in the bank, a beautiful family, international homes and celebrity pals, his demons remain clear to see.
    When I tell him he’s the “most insecure famous person, who still thinks he’s a little bit s”, he pauses before replying: “Yeah, I feel comfortable with that summary.”
    But he’s also, unquestionably, the most fun famous person to interview — and endearingly transparent.
    You can ask Robbie absolutely anything and he doesn’t bat an eyelid. “Have you ever snogged one of Take That?” (“No”).
    “Who’s the most famous woman you’ve slept with?” (“I’ll tell you after”). “Have you ever had an eating disorder?” (”I’ve had all the ’rexias, yes”).
    And so on.
    While filming the Netflix series, he was banned by producers from getting Botox, in case it messed with the continuity.
    Suffice to say, he has a faceful of the stuff now.
    Next stop? A £20,000 neck lift, and some “Turkey teeth”. “I’ve had Botox,” he says, not moving a muscle.
    “I can’t get angry now. And Ayda tells me I could do a bit more. And I will.
    “I think people’s image of plastic surgery or getting work done is based on bad examples.
    “They’re not realising that most people in the entertainment ­industry have had it done but you wouldn’t know — 90 per cent is pretty decent. 
    “I’m also getting my Turkey teeth done — I am looking about for the people that do the best teeth. I want to see examples where you go, ‘Oh, I didn’t know you’d had it done . . .’ I don’t want TV teeth.
    “I will do it and I will get a neck lift too. I’m gifting that to myself next year.
    “There just needs a bit of help, that’s all,” he says while hoisting up his jowls and pinching a teeny-tiny bit of loose skin.
    “I’m going for a consultation around Christmas — my 50th birthday present to myself.”
    Today, despite years of therapy and self-help groups, Robbie’s self-esteem remains bafflingly low.
    He recently started a hilarious parody “crap content” influencer account on Instagram, but will not read social media comments or Google himself.
    Sitting on his giant bed (I’m over Zoom, not beside him), he recalls: “There was a time when I was taking in all forms of information about myself.
    “If I was a therapist, I’d say I was looking for evidence to prove I was a s* person. I was looking for the bad stuff. And I found it.
    “But one day I was reading about how I’m the worst person to have ever existed in the whole world, and thought, ‘I’ve got to rectify this somehow’.
    “So I decided to go and read the comments’ section of some people who I know to be the salt-of-the-earth people in the entertainment industry.
    “I knew Ant and Dec were quality people, so as I started scrolling down I got to the second or third comment and read, ‘I hate these two almost as much as I hate that fat b**** Robbie Williams’. So that was nice.”
    In the documentary, Robbie admits he lived a rock star life — drinking a bottle of vodka a day, taking “whatever drugs I could get my hands on” and sleeping with groupies.
    So, how many women has he had sex with, I ask, unable to make eye contact, and wishing I worked for, say, the political section of this newspaper.
    He replies: “It’s probably higher than the average guy but lower than you would expect.”
    He then makes me guess.
    “Er, 65?”
    “Oh! Well it’s more than that!”
    “Yeah, let’s go with that.”
    Today he is nauseatingly happy with Ayda, with whom he was set up by a mutual pal during one of Robbie’s drug relapses.
    At one stage during their first date, Ayda recalls her future husband clucking like a chicken before being violently sick.
    They briefly split while Robbie got himself sober again, but went on to marry in 2010.
    Their eight dogs acted as bridesmaids, which is precisely the sort of pageantry I can get on board with.
    Regardless of his reduced testosterone levels, Robbie is clearly devoted to the mother of his children, Teddy, Charlie, Coco and Beau.
    And the only action he gets outside the family home is “women playing with their bits” over Instagram direct message. Which is lovely.
    He laughs: “The first thing I do is show Ayda and say, ‘Fing look at this!!’
    “We are sickeningly cheesy with each other. I’m happy, Ayda is amazing.

    “I know I have a big life, and I do feel lucky to have my family. Right now I’d describe myself as a very happy hermit… I’m a Coca- Cola-lite agoraphobic. And that works for me.”

    ROBBIE Williams is available to stream on Netflix from November 8. Day two of our Robbie interview is out tomorrow.

    Chloe revealed she and former rugby player James, 38 had “decided to separate at the end of September, 2023”.
    Before their split the couple spilled all on their ‘wild’ sex life and admitted they role played during their romps.
    Fitness coach Chloe previously told The Sun: “I’m a really sexual person, and if I had a partner who didn’t want to have a very sexual relationship then that would be a problem for me.”
    She added: “I’d struggle in terms of feeling satisfied and loved. So thank God it is massive for James.”

    James also commented on their sex life when he appeared on I’m A Celebrity, revealing they never have “boring” sex.
    He said: “It’s about communication. We talk about everything all the time. ‘What do you want, what are you interested in, what are you thinking about?’
    “A relationship can be more sexual and fun if you have those conversations.”
    The pair have had a number of heated rows, with Chloe herself even addressing it.

    She previously told The Mirror: “James is a domineering alpha male which is why I’m so attracted to him and why I sometimes hate him. And I’m a mouthy broad who has to be in control all the time.
    “We must have broken up in excess of a thousand times.
    “We know when it’s really serious ­because we each go eerily quiet.”
    Chloe recently revealed to The Sun how she and James had a furious row after he posted racy snaps with girls on his social media.
    She said: “One of the biggest row we’ve ever had was on camera.
    “It happened when he was in Ibiza and posted photos (on Instagram) of other girls’ asses.
    “My argument was, ‘I don’t mind that that is you job but I don’t want you putting it on social media when everyone knows I’m your wife.”
    The now ex-couple, who welcomed their daughter, Bodhi just 13 months ago, also weren’t shy about posting saucy snaps.
    A source close to them revealed how they even considered signing up to adult picture-sharing site OnlyFans.

    The Beckhams’ sauciest sex confessions – from kinky room to Victoria’s jaw-dropping revelation about David’s manhood

    THEY’VE been in the limelight for over 30 years and their star has never waned – and by the look of it, neither has their sex life.This week Victoria and David Beckham were pictured piling on the PDA in Miami, with the former footballer seemingly unable to keep his hands off his wife.

    Judging by their new Netflix documentary Beckham, there’s no denying the electric chemistry is still there for the superstar couple, who got married in 1999.
    In the past they’ve spoken candidly about their sex life and how they keep their spark alive, as we reveal…
    Kinky room
    David and Victoria’s first marital home was a sprawling mansion in Hertfordshire, dubbed Beckingham Palace.
    And Victoria once admitted they had a rather kinky room complete with a mirrored ceiling – separate from their master bedroom.
    She said: “There’s a room like a tart’s boudoir, with leopard print everywhere and a mirrored ceiling.
    “Then there’s our bedroom, which is quite virginal and white, with a big four-poster, old-oak bed.”
    Naked sleeping
    Victoria has also admitted she rarely wears clothes in bed – and would always choose sex over sleep.
    She confessed: “I’m getting into bed with David Beckham every night, so, you know, there’d be something wrong if I said, ‘sleep’.

    “I tend to wear nothing. But David bought me these little sets from Agent Provocateur…”
    Jaw-dropping confession
    Victoria has been very complimentary about the size of her husband’s manhood over the years, once likening it to a tractor exhaust pipe.
    In 2008 Becks appeared in an Emporio Armani underwear advert, wearing nothing but a pair of tight white briefs.
    Victoria said she was delighted to “see his penis 25ft tall” on billboards, and insisted he didn’t have a helping hand in making his bulge look bigger.
    “It’s huge. It’s enormous. Massive. If I looked like that I’d walk down the streets in my panties too,” she said at the time.
    “I’m proud I still have a really good sex life with David. He is very much in proportion… He does have a huge one, though. He does. You can see it in the advert. It is all his. It is like a tractor exhaust pipe!”

    When David and Victoria first started dating, they had to keep their relationship very private, at the advice of David’s Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
    This meant their first dates were far from romantic.
    David said: “My manager kept saying to keep it under wraps, don’t get photographed together. So we met in car parks – and I don’t mean that in a seedy way at all.
    “The first kiss I ever had with Victoria was in the BMW in the car park. Classy!”
    And it wasn’t just Fergie who was keeping tabs on them – Victoria wrote in her autobiography that they had to plan their first night together behind Spice Girls’ manager Simon Fuller’s back.
    She told how Simon had suggested they go away for a few days to a hotel in Italy – and he’d make all the bookings.
    “He was basically arranging the first place we should have sex,” Victoria wrote. “I had the feeling he expected me to say, ‘Oh, thank you, thank you, Simon’. That was one thing I didn’t want scheduled.”
    David and Victoria made alternative plans to sneak off together to a hotel while the other Spice Girls were at the Manchester Opera House for a Prince’s Trust concert.
    After the gig David picked Victoria up from their hotel in his BMW and took her back to his place, ignoring Simon’s orders to stay with the girls.
    He then dropped her back the following morning – early enough so she could sneak in and make her bed look like she’d slept in it.

    During the Beckham documentary David made a saucy confession of his own.
    Showing the cameras around their £12m country mansion in the Cotswolds, he said: “I wanted a place where we could escape. As soon as I get into the countryside… I normally get into my country get-up which I’m not in now. 
    “I’ve got a stick, I walk around, sit out here with a cup of coffee.”
    Sat on his patio and indicating a window, he added: “My favourite view of the house. I can also see Victoria if she’s naked in the top window.”
    Cheeky nicknames

    During Victoria and David’s infamous interview with Sir Michael Parkinson, she confessed she calls him “Golden Balls” – which instantly stuck. 
    But that’s not the only cheeky nickname she has for him.
    David has become a keen beekeeper since moving to the countryside, and she has named his honey supply DB’s Sticky Stuff.
    She shared a picture of David checking on his honey on Instagram, captioned: “Precious sticky stuff.” 
    He then replied: “Another one of @victoriabeckham’s sticky stuff jokes,” before she added: “I just can’t get enough!”
    It seems to be a running joke for the pair, who also referenced it while making a honey sponge cake.
    He told her: “DB’s sticky stuff cake. You should love it.”
    PDAs run in family…
    David and Victoria’s eldest son Brooklyn has clearly learnt how to pack on the PDA from his folks, as he and wife Nicola are just as raunchy.
    The pair are always posting racy pictures together, often kissing – and even shared a snap of them in the bath together to mark their anniversary.
    Nicola even posted pictures of them getting very close to celebrate her father-in-law’s Beckham premiere.
    Along with a stream of pictures, including one in which she was straddling Brooklyn with his hand on her bum, she wrote: “Last night was incredible congratulations @davidbeckham.”
    Many fans were baffled, with one writing: “Weird choice and/or order of pictures to congratulate your father-in-law, one might say.”

    Another added: “Odd pictures when it was for her father-in-law’s premiere.”
    Nicola also raised eyebrows when she shared intimate snaps of her with pal Selena Gomez, who’d previously joked she was in a “throuple” with the newlyweds.

    It comes as Tina boasted about their wild sex life, declaring sex gets better with age.
    She told Closer magazine: “Sex just gets better as you get older, I’m 60, so I’m comfortable with myself.

    Back in 2010, Tina had a gastric band fitted, and it saw her drop from a size 28 to a size six.
    It meant she needed further surgery to remove the excess skin left by her extreme weight loss.
    And last year she went under the knife again, this time to have a facelift.
    She told Closer magazine that she loved the result and that she felt “healthier, sexier and prettier than ever.”

    Why Am I Bleeding During Sex? Gynaecologists Explain Common Reasons And Treatments

    So you just had a nice romp in the sack and now, you’re dutifully peeing to avoid a UTI. (Great job, by the way.) But as you’re wiping, you see blood. What does that mean?

    Before you panic and text all of your friends for help, take a few deep breaths. Bleeding during or after sex, while jarring in the moment, isn’t necessarily a cause for concern, especially if there isn’t a ton of blood.

    “It’s not an uncommon thing that we [as doctors] hear about,” says Dr Lyndsey Harper, a board-certified ob-gyn and founder of sexual wellness app Rosy. “And the reason for that is because it can happen in so many different scenarios.”

    In many cases, bleeding during or after sex could be due to menstruation, or a microtear in the vagina. And the good news is, even if there’s a more serious reason (like a larger tear, or an STI), it’s likely treatable. Still, you’ll want to schedule a visit to your gynaecologist if the bleeding is heavy, bright red, or accompanied by pain—and, most importantly, if it happens more than twice in a brief window of time, says Dr Harper.

    Meet the Experts:

    Want to learn more? No need to crowdsource from your group chat: Women’s Health rounded up all the info you need about the common causes of bleeding during or after sex, including how to treat it and when to check in with your doc about it.

    What are some common reasons for bleeding after sex?

    There are many reasons you might experience bleeding during or after sex, so it’s always a good idea to talk to a doctor if you’re concerned. But here are some of the most common explanations, per ob-gyns.

    1. You’re on (or you just finished) your period.

    This is one of the most common reasons—and also one of the least worrisome, says Dr Harper.

    If your period recently ended, or it’s about to begin, you might see blood that’s slightly darker and browner in colour. “You can’t count on this a hundred percent of the time, but most of the time, if [the bleeding] is related to your period, the blood is going to be a dark brown,” she explains.

    2. You tore your hymen.

    You might have heard the myth that your hymen “breaks” after your first time having sex. The truth: It’s a little less one-size-fits-all than that. While many people do have a hymen, or tissue around their vagina, it doesn’t necessarily tear the first time you have intercourse, says Dr Harper. Sometimes, it can tear at an earlier age, due to tampon usage or certain kinds of exercise. And sometimes, a person can even have penetrative sex several times before their hymen tears, Dr Harper explains.

    If this happens to you, you’ll notice a distinct bright red colour. You’ll also probably feel a very brief, “sharp” moment of discomfort that’s more shocking than it is painful, says Dr. Harper.

    3. You’re experiencing vaginal dryness.

    There are many factors that can cause vaginal dryness, including birth control, breastfeeding, or menopause. “Vaginal dryness can lead to thinning of the vaginal wall and increased friction during intercourse. That can create little tears, which can bleed,” says Dr Harper.

    The words “vaginal tearing” might make you wince, but this is another very common cause of postcoital bleeding. Your best bet: Loading up on lube in preparation for sex, says Dr Brandye Wilson-Manigat, a board-certified ob-gyn and sex coach. She recommends adding a high-quality water-based or silicone-based lubricant into your sexual routine.

    If you’re going through menopause and having a persistent issue with bleeding, though, Dr Harper suggests setting up an appointment with your gynaecologist, who might recommend a hormone replacement. “Lack of oestrogen during menopause can lead to lots of other issues in addition to vaginal bleeding, so it’s always worth a discussion with your healthcare provider,” she explains.

    4. You just had sex that was a bit rougher than usual.

    Another reason you might have some vaginal tearing? Rough sex, or a larger-than-usual penis or strap-on, explains Dr Wilson-Mangiat. Slight tearing could be more likely if you haven’t had sex or been penetrated at all recently, adds Dr Nicole Williams, an ob-gyn at the Gynecology Institute of Chicago. “If it’s been a while since you’ve had sex, the tender skin around the vagina may have a microtear and cause some spotting,” says Dr Williams.

    In many instances, these tears are small and can heal on their own, assures Dr Harper. If you’re spotting slightly or the bleeding stops, it might just be a sign to tread more carefully (and with more lube) next time. But if the bleeding is heavy and insistent, you may have a larger tear that requires medical treatment.

    “You might notice [a bit of blood] on your toilet paper and think, ‘Oh, let me keep on eye on this.’ But if it’s a large tear, you’re going to be bleeding heavily, it’s going to be bright red blood and you’re going to need attention to make it stop,” she explains.

    5. You have a skin condition that makes you susceptible to tearing or bleeding.

    In some cases, the light bleeding could be a result of a skin condition that caused tearing. For example, a medical skin condition called lichen sclerosus, which can contribute to irritation and itching of the vulva in the prepubescent stage and after menopause, is also a source of tearing or bleeding after sex, Dr Wilson-Manigat explains.

    6. You have cervical polyps.

    Cervical polyps are one of the more common reasons for bleeding during sex that Dr Wilson-Manigat has seen in her practice. “These are benign growths on the cervix that are similar to a skin tag you would see on another area of your body,” she says. “But the difference between a skin tag and a polyp is that polyps can bleed very easily with light touch, which is why you may have bleeding from them during sexual activity.”

    Most of the time, they can be found during your routine pelvic exam and pap smear. Dr Harper stresses that they aren’t cancerous, but should still be addressed by a gynaecologist, so set up an appointment with your doc if you think you might be prone to polyps.

    7. You’re pregnant.

    Before you’ve even taken a test, light bleeding could be your first clue that you’re pregnant. One of the initial signs of early pregnancy can be vaginal bleeding, also known as implantation bleeding, which can occur right after sex, says Dr Alexandra Bausic, a board-certified gynaecologist and sex educator at Let’s Talk Sex. The cause of bleeding is the implantation of the embryo inside your uterus, so it may show up at any time, unrelated to penetration, Dr Bausic notes.

    If you think there’s a chance you could be pregnant and you’re noticing bleeding during sex or in general, take a test and then give your gyno a call. And if you’re further along in your pregnancy, bleeding during or after sex isn’t a totally abnormal occurrence—but you should also let your doctor know, just so they can make sure everything’s okay, Dr Harper suggests.

    “There are causes for bleeding during pregnancy that are not a big deal and then there are causes for bleeding during pregnancy that are a really big deal,” she says. “If the placenta is over the cervix, if you’re going into pre-term labour… There are a lot of things we want to rule out before we say, ‘eh, not a big deal.’”

    8. You have cervicitis.

    Another one of the more common explanations for bleeding during or after sex is cervicitis. While the word may sound scary, what’s basically happening is an inflammation of the cervix, says Williams.

    In some cases, a common infection such as bacterial vaginosis (BV) or an allergic reaction to latex condoms or certain feminine hygiene products causes inflammation in the cervix, according to the Mayo Clinic. But cervicitis can be easily treated with a topical antibiotic, Dr. Williams says.

    9. You have an STI.

    If you’ve been experiencing other symptoms down there—including difficulty peeing, discharge that smells more odorous than usual, or discharge that appears to be green or yellow in colour—you might have an STI, says Harper. “Gonorrhea and chlamydia can infect the cervix and make it fragile, so irritation to the cervix can make it bleed more readily,” she explains.

    Luckily, gonorrhoea and chlamydia are both treatable—just set up an appointment with your doctor, who can run some tests and help you get treatment. In more rare cases, an HPV infection could be causing some type of cervical pre-cancer, but don’t panic: Your doctor will flag any abnormalities with your pap smear first.

    10. You have a yeast infection.

    A sexually transmitted infection may not always be the cause—yeast infections can also be to blame for vaginal bleeding, says Dr Alyssa Dweck, an ob-gyn and author of The Complete A To Z For Your V. When you have a yeast infection, your vagina becomes sensitive, swollen and inflamed, which can lead to bleeding when you wipe, have sex, or itch the area, Dr. Harper adds.

    Chances are, if you have a yeast infection, other symptoms—namely, painful vaginal itching and clumpy, adherent discharge—will present themselves first, explains Dr. Harper.

    11. You have cervical cancer.

    Unfortunately, there is a worst-case possibility: “Pre-cancerous and cancerous cells of the cervix can definitely cause bleeding and that is obviously very worrisome,” says Dr Harper. What’s also concerning is that, oftentimes, cervical cancer—especially in its early stages—presents very few symptoms. This is why she always recommends seeing a doctor if the bleeding starts happening semi-frequently, even if just to rule it out.

    With cervical cancer, “you can have spotting with intercourse, but you can also have some random spotting, too,” Dr Harper explains. “And it’s bright red, not like menstrual spotting. Whenever people are having bright red bleeding outside of their cycle, they want to be evaluated.”

    So I should really see a doc if I bleed during or after sex?

    Definitely, if it’s a recurring thing. Here’s Dr Williams’ rule of thumb: “If you have a single episode of bleeding after sex, especially if you’re just finishing your period or have started a new hormonal birth control, it may not be anything to be concerned about. However, if it happens more than once, it’s best to just make a quick visit to the gyno and have yourself checked out.”

    After you’ve made your doctor appointment, come prepared with as much information as possible to help ID your condition. First, always pay attention to the colour of the blood. “Darker blood is usually older blood and is not as concerning as if it were very bright red,” Dr Williams says. Also, take note if the blood is accompanied by pelvic pain and discomfort. Or, if your vaginal discharge has a different texture or smell, advises Dr Bausic.

    In terms of treatment, rest assured that many of these conditions are treatable once your doctor is able to diagnose you with the infection or skin condition. One way to rule out infections before you’re even in the doctor’s office is by making sure that pregnancy or any kind of potentially irritating external products aren’t causing the bleeding, Dweck says.

    For many one-time occurrences of bleeding during sex, using lube the next time around can do the trick. But if that’s not helping, it’s best to look further into what could be causing the bleeding. It’s true that sex can be messy—and while talking about bodily fluids and blood can sometimes be uncomfortable, your gyno is trained to help you. That way, you can make sure sex gets back to what it should be: fun!
