The Appeal Of An Older Guy: Why Are Older Men So Sexy?

Younger men are really not my thing. I’ve never been in a relationship with a guy younger than me; it wasn’t a conscious choice, just the way things have worked out. There’s never been a rejection of a guy, in a sex or relationship sense, just because he’s a bit younger than me. But when I’ve come to think about it, older men hold a particular and definite allure for me.

How To Be Romantic Without Spending Any Money

By Cara Sutra: It's so easy to be swept along into the great commercialisation of love and romance. To cave under the weight of the ads and believe that romance is measured in expensive bouquets, hotel stays, sparkling jewellery and weekends abroad. Don't me wrong – I love all that stuff. But it's definitely not required in order for me to know that my partner loves me. Whatever your bank balance, there are ways to be incredibly romantic without spending any money. Or at least, very little… using items you probably already have around your home.

A Cock Sucking Story: How I Give Him A Blow Job

By Cara Sutra: Both his hands are in my hair now and I’m being bounced off his cock. He’s using the very deepest part of my throat as his personal wank sleeve – a fuck toy in which to dump his cum.

Best large body-safe and phthalates free dildo?

I have crucified the old dildo on a cross and am now searching for the perfect one. I like realistic dildos or I have seen some alien dildos, but what would you recommend for 8-9 inches that will be as safe, clean and hassle free as possible.

Best Slim Vibrators For Small Vaginas

By Cara Sutra: I must admit that when I look at vibrator features, size doesn't really register. I'm one of those women who assumes that vaginal vibrators are made in, well, vagina size. If they're tiddly then they might be more of a clit stim for me.

New Year, New You? – Hella’s Body and Mind Positive New Year Resolutions

By Hella Rude The first time I heard the phrase 'new year, new you' was during my first year working with Lovehoney. As someone who is blinkered to self-depreciating bollocks on the interwebs, this apparent cliche had managed to pass me by for my then 26 years. Since acknowledging the premise, my eyes have really been opened to how much consumerism can make you feel shit about yourself during the festive season...

Vibrators Provide Better Masturbation & Longer Orgasms, Says Science

I know what you’re thinking. Well duh, obviously a vibrator feels great and helps you orgasm. True, but did you know that there’s now scientific evidence proving that vibrators make masturbation better and give you longer orgasms? It’s official: vibrators are awesome. Because science.

Why naked pics and cock shots don’t do it for me

When I receive a cock shot in my inbox, I feel none of the sensations and emotions that the above mental imagery conjures up. I see, quite patently and very boringly, penis. Oh look, it’s a penis. Thanks. There's absolutely zero sensation or stimulation whether in my brain, throat, nipples, clit or deep inside my pussy. Nothing. A mild sense of irritation that my time has been wasted opening this message, and perhaps a deeper sense of disappointment if said penis-pic has come from a contact I expected more from than to send me cock shots as some failed attempt at getting my attention and summoning arousal. I toss the email, with disdain, into the trash bin. These days, I don’t even reply to the contact with surprise, anger, or upset. I simply cut all ties.

I Heart Cara Sutra – Sex Toy Haul & ETO Show 2015

By Hella Rude Working in the adult retail sector is super-happy fun times and most people working in the industry have full-time contracts or their own company, so as a freelancer you feel somewhat disconnected from everyone. It's therefore unusual to form a bond with anyone who isn't your client. You know and like lots of folk, but there's never any real time to forge friendships.

How can I stop being kinky? I want to leave BDSM!

I hear quite frequently of Doms and Dommes, Masters and Mistresses, submissives and bottoms talking of quitting ‘the scene.’ The scene of course, being BDSM or Fetish. How can a person stop being kinky? Can one...

Erotic Author Spotlight Series: Ava Manello

I step out of my boxers, making my way closer to the shower. The cold air from the door opening startles Christy, but when she sees it’s me she relaxes again. The smile that I love spreads over her lips, lighting up her face as she beckons me in with an outstretched finger. I don’t hesitate, needing to be with her. She draws me in until we’re both under the blast of hot water. Fuck! How the hell can she stand it this hot? She’s a self-confessed shower tart. She’d be happy to spend all day under the warm stream if I’d let her. Christy moves for the shower gel, turning me around to lather my back. The slow, sensual stroke of her hands feels so good. The tension starts to leave my shoulders and body. I turn and lean in to gently nip at her neck, while her hands move behind me to massage my ass. She let’s out that little moan that gets me every time. My erection pushes itself into her stomach, wanting in on the action. Laughing quietly she moves a hand around to my front, taking a firm hold of my cock. Shit, that feels so good. She squeezes lightly, massaging up and down my length. Her soap covered hands so soft and slick against me.
