By Cara Sutra: The Black Friday phenomenon has well and truly got its feet under the table on this side of the pond. Although its origins are Stateside, we can’t resist a bargain here in good old Blighty, so Black Friday and Cyber Monday have been welcomed in with get-out-of-my-bloody-way arms.
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 Cara Sutra: Cancer has not only affected my own close family, but also the lives of many friends. It’s an evil beast – completely dispassionate and non-discriminatory about who it strikes, when, and how. Cancer awareness months seem, on the face of it, a great idea. I feel they have a limited benefit though. Unless you also donate.
By Cara Sutra: Gazing through the rain spattered window into the wet gloom this morning, it seems a cruel joke of nature that our summer officially started yesterday. Despite the evidence, thoughts are turning to a traditionally hot summer, with adverts for BBQs, barbecue food, garden furniture and the like reminding us of what we’re missing every time we turn on the TV.
By Cara Sutra: Adult Sex Ed Month has been created for easy and shame-free access to sex ed in adult life. June is Adult Sex Ed Month 2016 and I am very excited to be part of the campaign for more and for better sex education for adults - as well as raising awareness of its ongoing importance.
By Zak Jane Keir Of course, it’s Easter, which is the Christian festival most associated with ‘fertility rituals’ and symbols that are not really that Christian at all – though there is still no agreement, let alone any proof, as to which specific ancient pagan feast inspired the annual celebration of eggs, bunnies, flowers and binging on chocolate. I wish you all joy and delight in the springtime, whether your bunnies are battery-powered or the sort that moan with joy when you wrap them up in rope, and if you want to mark the occasion by eating a Creme Egg off your favourite playmate’s naughty bits then go right ahead.
By Cara Sutra: As the weather turns warmer and brighter (long may it last) and the season rolls round to spring, thoughts do tend to turn towards spring cleaning. It’s in our nature. Spring is a time for new beginnings, fresh starts – whether that’s finally sorting out the cupboard under the stairs or taking all the old trash in the garage to the tip, finally. Perhaps this is the year you get rid of the worn out Christmas decorations and promise yourself you’ll be sensible and buy new ones in good time for December’s festivities.
My body surrendered to the need and I luxuriated in the sinful feeling of a lazy self-fuck, my pussy slowly swallowing every part of the gently widening rabbit shaft. My labia, slick with cunt drool and lube, snug to the sides of this invader and the feel of them submitted to allow entry. A set of shivers came over me as I slowly slid the rabbit home.
Whether you agree with Valentine’s Day or not, February always brings out the romantic side of a relationship. Whether you bring your partner home a bunch of flowers, or you prefer to cuddle on the sofa with a takeaway and a film, it’s a time to celebrate your ‘togetherness’. For couples in a BDSM relationship, Valentine’s Day is a great reason to lock the door, dig out your collection of kinky treats and find subspace together.
I am a bit tired of reading relationship advice articles which seem to be directed towards 20-something couples who have no children and seemingly unlimited funds despite no job or other obligations (why yes, we really should go on a champagne hot air balloon ride together one weekday afternoon) so I thought I'd put my own 'sexy relationship tips' article together - for parents.
The annual celebration of romance is just around the corner, so it's time to take a look at the best Sexy Valentine's Day Shopping Offers 2016. Save money on your sex toys and sexy lingerie - whether you're arranging a saucy night in with a partner or planning on some self-seduction and well deserved me-time.
During Christmas 2015 I had the chance to reflect and reassess what I’m exactly doing here, with my blog, in life. What my actual goals are and what I want to get out of the work I put into projects. With that in mind, and moving on from the harsh realities of the past year noted above (and taking a pinch of inspiration from this excellent New Year's Resolutions article by Hella Rude), I’ve written ten somewhat surprising promises to myself for the next year (and beyond) which will serve as my New Year’s Resolutions 2016.
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...
‘He came back with a scarf which was taken from a snowman in the garden and some large sprigs of holly. Lee wrapped the scarf around my head and took some miniature pegs from the Christmas card holder around the fire. He fastened two pegs to my nipples and told me to bend over and hold my ankles.‘ The officer shifted in his seat and moved closer into the table. Does he have an erection? wondered Kerry, stifling a giggle. The officer silenced her with a glare and gestured for her to continue.

Having worked in adult retail for 5 years, I'm no stranger to penning a sexy Christmas gift guide or 10. However it's fair to say most of my work focuses on product marketing, even though buying the right things for sexy time does not a master make. I could tell you which toys and lingerie I rate highest as we wrap up 2015, but if you haven't done the ground work - there's little point in your spending £$£$ on gear. As is becoming a bit of a Cara Sutra tradition, I'd like to deviate from the obvious Christmas gift guides and focus on some advice we can all get on board with.
I’m as guilty here as the next person. When it comes to sex with your partner, or even solo fun, it’s so easy to find yourself in a rut. Bedtime, the lights are out, a brief cuddle, you slip under the duvet to attend to them or they snuggle up behind you – and oops, I’ve slipped inside. Or, if you’re single, you head off to bed and whack out that predictable O with your old faithful from the bedside drawer before letting it fall to the floor and drifting off to sleep.
