The enduring popularity of BDSM cannot be attributed in its entirety to the relatively recent appearance of Fifty Shades Of Grey, no matter how much the media would love for that to be the case. Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, Sadism and Masochism are all power exchange activities, either including sex or entirely and deliberately absent of it, which have been practiced for centuries.
By Cara Sutra: Bums. Everyone has one, and very useful they are too. Our undervalued derrières not only house the exit which keeps our bodies functioning healthily, but offer comfortable padding when we need to take the weight off our feet. Did you realise that your bottom also has the potential to give you incredible pleasure, as well as a mere sigh of relief any time you sit down?
By Cara Sutra: You're in the middle of sexy time, they're seeking out your hot spots with their fingers but suddenly... ouch. That's not sexy at all. Sometimes the course of good sex doesn't run smooth, and can in fact be a bit of a drag. That's where sexual lubricants can help out. Lube is your super smooth new best friend, and I'm going to help you navigate the seas of this often underrated sex essential.
When you're in a relationship, it can be so easy to slip into set daily routines which might not include quite as much spontaneity, frivolity and affection as when you were in your first flush of love. Life has a habit of popping up with all sorts of hurdles to a care-free, explorative love-life; family and/or work responsibilities or worrying over health or financial pressures can make the warm bond of relationship intimacy feel like a long-forgotten dream.
When it comes to buying your first sex toy, the sheer amount of different types of sex toys available can be completely bewildering. Nobody wants to part with their hard-earned cash for something which is either unsuitable for you or of questionable quality. For those new to the pleasures of sex toys, this advice guide should help you buy a first sex toy (or selection of sexy products) which will be suitable for your needs - giving you pleasure, not disappointment.
Introducing Rebecca Dakin, The Great British Sexpert: If your car breaks down, you call a mechanic. If you start getting worrying aches and pains, you call the doctor. It makes sense then, to call a relevant expert when problems arise in our relationships and sex lives. Someone who can give good advice and offer solutions based on experience and/or officially recognised qualifications.
By Cara Sutra: If you think that all sex begins and ends with penis-in-vagina, you are wrong on so many levels. And I'm talking about everyone there, but for the purposes of this article: especially women who love women, whether bisexual or lesbian. There are plenty of creative ways to tantalise and stimulate without resorting to the heteronormative, phallo-centric ideals society often loves to *ahem* thrust upon us. Yes, you can have amazing lesbian sex.
Shopping for sex toys on the high street isn’t as easy for everybody. What if you’re out shopping with your kids, or dad, or mother-in-law? What if that sex shop is right by where you work? What if you don’t want to head home, past the curtain-twitching neighbours, with a sex shop branded bag overflowing with anal beads, vibrating butt plugs and rabbit vibrators? Here’s the good news: you don’t have to.
The noises coming from the girls now could make you come just to hear it. It was making my cock surge and pulse listening to them enjoy each other so much. Letting my cock spring free of my boxers, I manoeuvred myself so I was behind the pair of them. I used Raven’s waist to steady me, my hands on her sensational curves, occasionally putting a hand down to guide me in. I needed to be inside my girl first.
She’d waxed and tanned and barely dressed, she’d courted darkness’ approach with a stilettoed dash through the twilight between taxi and apartment building, and now she stood facing her work for the evening. Average, she decided. From the postcode and the cut of the suit trousers he was wearing he definitely had the means to back up his demands. But first impression looks-wise? Average.
Money. We often don't have enough of it to do what we want, and most people's lives include an element of trying to get more. Usually this is to cover at least the expense of everyday life, sometimes for a specific ambition or dream. That designer dress, the car that caught your eye on the forecourt, the deposit for your first home.
Luxury sex toys offer their owners reliability instead of a quick and often disappointing buzz which fizzles faster than pound shop batteries. Luxury toys last for many years, are made from tested body safe materials, often come with a satisfaction and manufacturing quality guarantee and therefore lead to worry-free masturbation and sex.
What's your opinion of people who use sex toys? The sex toy industry is booming, so it must be true what they say: sex sells. At least, it does to those people who confidently explore the different sensations that sex toys offer. Not everyone feels able to to stalk into a high street sex shop and brazenly thrust armfuls of rabbit vibrators and butt plugs at the cashier.

The streaming water hit my naked skin hard, hot and cathartic. I stood under the shower and enjoyed having time to focus on the night's plans. I lathered up, letting my hands roam over my breasts, soapy fingers sliding over my nipples. The job was different from usual. A woman this time. I'd fucked plenty of women before of course, but what was unusual was a woman actually paying for me to come do it. My usual clients were men of all ages, income, shape and size. I turned the prospect of a new job, this new client, over in my mind. Did it really matter? No. Fuck, I was actually looking forward to it. My fingers roamed in their cleaning duty, sliding between my legs to where my excitement had gathered along with the streaming lather under the steamy water. The temptation to toss myself off right then and there in the shower was strong but I managed to just about keep a hold of myself. Clients could always tell if you were genuinely turned on, and were more likely to rebook an enthusiastic girl. Might as well use that sex drive for her leisure turned business pursuit. My strong libido was such a great earner. There hadn't been much on the email that came through about the job. Gender, obviously, and I'd quickly replied that no, a woman wasn't a problem, I'd told them I was bisexual when I joined. Age, 26. Younger than me but old enough. Clean bill of sex health. Something I was glad I insisted on being checked before any client call. Address. I'd booked a taxi which was due to pick me up in less than an hour. I'd better quick-step it out of the shower if I wanted to be dried and dressed in time.
Sex toy shopping websites. You’ve seen them, you’ve visited them, and you probably have your favourites bookmarked. I’m here to tell you about a serious new player to town which puts those regular and boring shops in the shade: Love Curiosity. What makes Love Curiosity so different? Instead of page after page of pink jelly rabbit vibrators, pocket pussies and more lubricant than a particularly perverted wrestling competition, Love Curiosity offer you two major differences; 1. A fresh feeling, vibrant, easy to navigate website which looks and feels unique amongst sex toy shopping websites 2. Hand-picked, high quality products specially selected to appeal to the most discerning customers Love Curiosity focus on only selling sex toys and bedroom accessories from trusted and reputable suppliers.
I’m here to put your fears to bed about some of the more unusual materials sex toys can be made from. It may surprise you to learn that not all vibrators and dildos are made from flexible materials such as jelly, silicone or PVC. Perhaps you’ve never seen any other type of sex toy than the ‘bendy’ sort. In reality, there’s a whole world of alternative materials to get to grips with, each with their own unique appeal and other advantages. There is a wealth of choice when it comes to dildos made from rigid materials (ie. those which don’t bend). Specialist sex toy shops might even sell wooden dildos or perhaps they’ve gone positively primitive with a (body-safe and smooth) stone dildo offering. Unlike a few decades ago, where anything other than jelly sex toys were unheard of, even mainstream sex shops are now selling rigid material sex toys. The most common materials for rigid sex toys are ceramic, metal and glass.
So what does the future of social connectivity mean to me? I’m in a different position to those seeking a way to connect with their lover or the target of their seduction techniques over long distance. I live with my partner so we are fortunate to be able to maintain a regular and exciting sex life skin to skin, lips to lips, fingers in hair, and… well. I’ll leave that to your imagination for now. However, not everyone is able to live with their partner, or see their fuck buddy very often, or even live in the same country as the one they lust after. What then?
By Cara Sutra: Do women-specific lubricants really matter? When you first realise that what your sex life needs is a little more glide, you will doubtless turn to sex lubricants to transform that dry chafe into sexy friction. It’s only when you start shopping for lubricants (at a well stocked online sex shop as Lubezilla) that you begin to realise that this task isn’t as simple as you’d first imagined.
