Masturbating for dopamine, Sims 4 and banning the word coronavirus from Vava | Editor’s Letter


Let’s just be real, it is really hard to find the world beautiful right now. To get motivated, to be productive and to feel hope as we go days without any real updates.

It’s hard not being able to squeeze your loved ones, not being able to laugh and be in the moment with your friends, not knowing if you will be affected by losing someone you adore to Covid-19.

I could write and focus on the negatives, heck I could write a 10,000-word essay on why the majority of this country might as well have a pebble for a brain, but in truth, I, and I’m sure a lot of us feel the same, just need to take a break from reading about coronavirus.


It’s not selfish to need to distance yourself from the constant updates, headlines, and having the daily death toll scan across your mind on repeat. I know I do.

I’ll hold my hands up, I need somewhere I can go for at least a little while to remember that I am more than a person living between four walls.

But also to remember that this will end, I’ll hug my family again, I’ll playfully mess up my nan’s blow-dry once more, go on holiday, laugh at the boozer with my friends and return to spending £4 a day at Starbucks.

You also need to remember that while the world is dark right now, you too will reunite with the ones you cherish, travel the world, and do whatever it is your heart so desires.

Therefore, here on VavaViolet, we are banning the word coronavirus from our content. We are not medical experts, there is enough advice and news updates out there.

While we let the professionals tackle the pandemic and whole-heartedly support our NHS heroes by staying home, this little corner of the internet will be working to create content which will get you ready and excited for when the world returns to normal.

From sexy toy reviews to career advice on how to become a journalist without a degree (going live on Friday, May 8), how to have safe sex on the internet and over the phone (Thursday, May 7), to the men who broke their penis’ (going up tomorrow).

We also have the team to join us on what they have been doing while in lockdown, with Vava writer Shalini Chatterjee joining me to talk about why the Sims has saved us mentally during quarantine (Saturday, May 9) and the things we are buying to make our homes cute from Amazon (Wednesday, May 13).

For the singles in lockdown, we have an opinion piece on how the f**k to stop crying over a guy (Saturday, May 16), Tips to orgasm while masturbating, for the ladies (Friday, May 15) and how to feel more confident in the bedroom (Monday, May 25).

There will also be quirky date ideas in London for when this is over (Friday, May 29), and sex positions to try around the house (Monday, May 18).

I'll also be answering reader's dilemmas on Monday, May 11, where you can send them in anonymously to the following link https://ask.fm/sophieblackman.

For the creatives reading this who are looking to get over their boredom and use their talent, get in touch! Photographers, illustrators, writers, social media experts, etc, we're hiring! Please email vavaviolett(at)outlook(dot)com or tweet us at @VavaVioletMag if you think you have something you could bring to the table.

I and the team look forward to hopefully bringing you some lols during these times.

I know it's hard, and it's scary but remember, nothing lasts forever.
