Santa Sutra and the Rebellious Rein-Girl – Christmas Erotica

By Cara Sutra: Upon hearing her vain exclamation to the other three rein-girls over dinner that they weren’t even needed anyway, that she could do the job all by herself and probably even better at that, they’d at first looked surprised then strangely smug. How was she to know Santa Sutra would choose that exact moment to re-enter the feeding shed from behind her?

How To Have A Sexy Relationship When You’re Parents

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.

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...

Of The Santa Persuasion – Christmas Erotica

By Cara Sutra: He may have been an old man – to her, at least – but his cock was as rigid and thick and ready as any young stud. Her endeavours crawling across the floor towards him, over the generous amount of floor, hadn’t been in vain, judging from the warm pulsing through the stiff member she soon held in her hand.

How To Gift Lingerie She Loves For Christmas

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.

What do you mean it’s November?!

However with things at work being busier than a vintage Laura Ashley dress, I have had my days taken up with writing about the sublime contours and luxurious massaging functions of seemingly every battery operated self pleasure device known to woman, as well as heavily featuring a new male sex toy.

Why the obligatory romance of Valentine’s Day is stupid and insulting

“How to Bag a Man for Valentine’s Day” (because all women are straight, don’t forget) and if there should be a specific man in said Singleton’s sights (poor bloke), “10 Ways to Make Him Propose on Valentine’s Day” “6 of the Best Lingerie Sets to Make him Forget His Name, Hand Over His Wallet and Make Him Suck on Your High Heels While You Plan Your Wedding In Two Weeks Time” etc etc. You get my point.

New Year’s Resolutions 2016 – 10 Surprising Promises To Myself

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.

Budget for love this Valentine’s Day with Bondara

8 Ways To Sex Up Your Christmas

By Cara Sutra: Christmas isn’t intrinsically sexy. The focus is on the home: gathering relatives and friends for a family closeness that often only happens this time of year. Traditional scenes of baking biscuits, sipping chocolate topped with cream and marshmallows and enjoying their excited little faces all aglow doesn’t exactly scream wanton and passionate romps with your partner. Let’s not miss an opportunity for adult mischief, though. I’ve got a few ideas to help make Christmas sexy for couples and get your name so indelibly on Santa’s naughty list he’ll only visit to deliver an over the knee spanking.

5 Ways To Enjoy Fireworks In The Bedroom

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.

The best Halloween themed sex toys – plus, scary but sexy adult costumes

Think Halloween is just for kids and goths? Think again! Everyone can find something to enjoy at Halloween, and I don’t just mean a bucket of teeth-rotting sweets. Sink your teeth into something juicy and fun after bedtime… a sexy treat for yourself or shared with a lucky partner. Seeing as you’re here at Cara Sutra it’s safe to assume you have at least a little interest in sex toys. Hopefully, quite a strong and healthy interest. Did you know that there are Halloween sex toys? Ok, I admit it: some of the sex toys you find in the Halloween areas of sex shops have less than tenuous links, but a little imagination goes a long way. It’s all in the name of fun - solo or shared - so overlook the creative licence on some of these so-called spooky sex toys and get in the spirit of things.
