US to demand social media details from visa applicants

One of the trending news this weekend has been the U.S. State Department’s new requirement that nearly all U.S. visa applicants should submit their social media usernames, previous email addresses and phone numbers as part of the application process.

The new requirement, which could affect up to 15 million would-be travelers to the U.S., is part of a broad expansion of enhanced screening under the Trump administration.

First proposed in March 2018, the State Department only just updated the application forms to request the additional information, according to a report from the Associated Press.

Certain diplomatic and official visa applicants will be exempt from the stringent new measures.

However, people travelling to the US to work or to study will have to hand over their information.

“We are constantly working to find mechanisms to improve our screening processes to protect US citizens, while supporting legitimate travel to the United States,” the department reportedly said.

Previously, only applicants who needed additional vetting – such as people who had been to parts of the world controlled by terrorist groups – would need to hand over this data.

But now applicants will have to give up their account names on a list of social media platforms, and also volunteer the details of their accounts on any sites not listed.

These new obstacles to immigration come at a time when competition for highly-skilled talent is at an all-time high. And according to data from the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development, the U.S. is no longer the top-ranked destination for highly skilled workers or entrepreneurs.

Increasingly, immigrants are turning to countries like Canada,  Norway, Switzerland, Germany, Australia and New Zealand as destinations to settle and start businesses or find work, OECD data suggests.

Mental health and your love life

Mental health is the topic on everyone’s lips these days. With issues like Anxiety on the rise, it’s no wonder. We hear about the symptoms every day, but rarely do people talk about how it can affect your love life. It’s a conversation that needs to happen- and now.

All problems that can be caused by Anxiety. All problems that can affect you forever if you ignore them. It’s daunting to think about, and easy to feel as though you’re facing the impossible. Thankfully, nothing could be further from the truth. Armed with some handy tips and a lot of stamina, you’ll be on your way to banishing Anxiety in no time. You never know, you could have more fun than you expected.

Remove the Pressure

All our lives, we are taught that making love is a Big Deal.

For some people, it is- and that’s okay- as long as it doesn’t get in the way of your bedroom antics. For others, these harmful expectations only build on existing anxieties. Do you need to get it up every time? Do you need to make it last longer than an hour? Do you need to have sex twice a day, every day? All questions people ask themselves.

And the answer is always no.

This pressure is the last thing you need, and it can have lifelong effects if you let it get to you. Learn to laugh it off instead, remind yourself that times are changing, and ignore what society is telling you. Mostly, remember that taking sex lightly doesn’t mean it’s not important. You can easily value intimacy and love while still being able to enjoy sex. People do it every day, so why should you miss out? This is where websites like Skissr can come in, it gives men the chance to deal with their bedroom issues without having to feel judged or shamed.

Work On Your Confidence

Anxiety manifests in various ways. With sex, a lot of these worries stem from low confidence. Whether it be body confidence issues, lack of faith in your sexual abilities, or being too afraid to ask for what you want during sex, there is no denying that confidence is your key to a better sex life. Without it, you won’t feel satisfied, and it might put you off having it altogether.

That’s something nobody wants, but there is one silver lining to all this. Today, there are more resources than ever out there to help people build their confidence back up. Even the smallest of tips can revolutionise your love life and your sex life, and you can start following them as soon as now.

Living a healthier lifestyle, giving yourself daily reminders, and practicing your technique are all ways you can make the change. It won’t happen overnight, but following these tips is sure to help your confidence grow in the long run.

Get to Know Yourself

A huge part of sexual anxiety is not knowing what it is that gets you off. Or, knowing exactly what does, but feeling (wrongly) embarrassed about it.

People should never be ashamed of their kinks. Luckily, we are living in an age where masturbation, fetishes, and fantasies are no longer taboo. Instead, they’re encouraged. There is no better time to shed your embarrassment. So, when you have some time alone, explore your body, find out what you like, and embrace what turns you on.

Even so, it is one thing to be comfortable with yourself, and another to be comfortable with someone else. This is why many people prefer a different approach, an escort service. Opting to have a non-judgemental, helping hand teaching you about what makes you tick could be more useful in the long term- and more fun. Choosing the right service provider makes all the difference, making escort services like

Learn How to Relax

People deal with stress and anxiety every day. Work commitments, family problems, and money troubles can all leave you lying awake at night. The result is tension, and lots of it. This can make you snappy, frustrated, and unable to enjoy sex. Your brain and body are one in the same, and it’s true that a lot of obstacles with sex are to do with what’s going on in your head.

There is one glaringly simple answer to this, which is learning how to relax. Relaxation results in nothing less than mind-blowing sex, which can make you feel even more relaxed- trapping you in a non-stop cycle of ecstasy.

It is no secret that hiring an escort can help you relax during sex, but escorts aren’t the only way. It could be as simple as meditating for a few minutes every day to diffuse daily anxieties, but having regular massages and trying tantric yoga are both popular ideas making their way into the mainstream.

Talk it Out

The first rule when it comes to mental health is to find someone to talk to. Keeping everything bottled up inside can have a huge impact on your wellbeing, and an even bigger one on your sex life.  Unfortunately, talking about anxiety- especially sexual anxiety- is much easier said than done. This could be because you fear admitting the problem, or because you’re worried it might dampen the mood even further.

One thing’s for sure: the opposite is true.

In fact, talking to a partner or therapist can actually relieve worry. Sometimes, reassurance about your worries may be all you need to jump back into the bedroom and improve your sex life. Other times, it could be that you need to work through some deeper issues relating to companionship. Somewhere along the line, you’re bound to find some real solutions that you can put into practice. Either way, you can be sure that you’ll soon be swapping therapy talk for dirty talk.
