By Smut6: You can expect lots of people to make a scrunchy “eww” face once they discover that someone has a certain fetish - say for instance, spanking or licking feet. Those, however, pale in comparison to some of the really strange stuff that people Google to wank over. We scoured the internet for ten of the weirdest kinds of porn out there, and came up with this list.
By Mel MacFarlane: As a woman, I love opening expensive new lingerie on Christmas morning (hint, hint). I love the thought of my other half lovingly choosing the delicate fabrics, admiring the cut of the soft lace and his face as he dreams of me wearing it. I picture him assertively flicking through the hangers, and the final eureka moment when he spies the perfect garment to emphasise my long legs, disguise my saggy tummy and deliver a cleavage to die for.
By Giles English: In the ideal kinky world, everybody talks before and after doing power exchange: “Communicate, communicate, communicate.” It’s the standard expectation in the BDSM community, where refusing to talk about kink is a red flag. And yes, communicating about kink feels like a no-brainer. How else will you both make sure that everything is safe and consensual?
By Naughty North: Although it's exciting, shopping for a vibe can be an overwhelming experience. 30 years ago there were wand massagers. In 2016 there are smartphone enabled, g-spot specific, battery powered vibrators that vibe with music. Sex shops are now a jungle of new products.

By HornyGeekGirl: For me a big part of my sex life (especially with those sexy friends who live further away) is sharing sexy photos. This can take many different forms. From a simple and totally PG photo of my smiling face, all the way to a very graphic shot of a very private area.
By Vanessa de Largie: This adamant refusal to let the events and the perpetrators have any further power over me, mentally or physically, ties in very much to why rape fantasy is such an enjoyable roleplay and sexual fetish of mine. Rape fantasy and rapeplay isn’t a choice for me, it’s a need.
By Mel MacFarlane: I began a brand new business venture and declared that I couldn’t write about sex toys forever. However, when push came to shove, I found that I couldn’t walk away from sex toy reviewing because it’s a part of my life that I absolutely love.
By Cheryl Kaye: In my last column I mentioned that in the last six months I’d had more sexual partners than in the previous six years. I explained that I’d been voluntarily celibate for four years, it was actually six years...
By Jon Pressick: This article is about pride, small ‘p’, meaning “the quality of having an excessively high opinion of oneself or one's importance.” In no way am I equating sin and Pride, capital ‘P’, the universally accepted word that exemplifies the LGBTQ+ movement...
By Cheryl Kaye: I finally worked my way out of an abusive relationship, and swore off men for a while. However, that realisation got me thinking about how cautious I have always been about certain things, and how that is spilling over into this. I want all the sex but I want it to be safe too.
