We are not Men's Health magazine

24/07/20 . News

The Men's Health Forum is sometimes confused with Men's Health magazine. While normally we co-exist quite happily, we are nothing to do with each other.

We are stressing it today because Welsh MP Alex Davies-Jones has called on Men's Health magazine to take down an article it has posted on how to use choking during sex.

This is also not the sort of article we would post on our site. The practice, even if truly consensual, is unacceptably high risk and by implicitly normalising the behaviour, we find the article dangerously irresponsible. We strongly support Alex Davies-Jones's concerns. Her tweet is below

 

 

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.

Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
