What are biohackers? you're wondering. Biohacking is a fairly new practice that could lead to some real major evolutionary changes in our lifetime. You could it call citizen or do-it-yourself biology. This is self-styled body improvements. There is no real set standard; one biohacker’s hack may not be the panacea of another’s. Biohacking is what you get when you combine the field of biology with hacking.
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.
Several years ago I used to suffer from what is known as retroactive jealousy — an irrational obsession with a partner’s sexual or romantic past. It all started with me when my new girlfriend and I were woken up at 2 am by one of her former hook-up buddies calling to see if she was “around” that night.
By The Sex Chat Site: Have you ever been tempted to go online and start having some sex chat with other naughty people? You’ve seen it before on porn sites; where a woman is just getting herself off in front of a webcam whilst a guy on the other end is doing the same.
By Hella Rude While enjoying the decadent pleasures of Sziget Festival in Budapest I received a call from Lovehoney's PR requesting some press quotes on the subject of polygamy. Unfortunately the context wasn't explained fully and from a transcribed explanation of the differences between polygamy and polyamory, a relatively confusing series of quotations were published in relation to an article on Female First.
Fear of being foolish is the death of fun in a relationship. If you can’t just go for it, in sex or in anything, then your sex life is on the fast track to a funeral, and the part of you that wants to play—everyone has this part—that is dead, too. Rather than, or in addition to, more structured sexual experimentation—a la “7 Sex Positions Every Woman Must Try”—I encourage you to try bringing plain ol’ nonsexual play back into your life.
A sensual, erotic massage can be a wonderfully relaxing and enriching experience for both you and your partner, especially as a prelude to sexual activity. Many people, however, might not have a clue where to start in the world of massage, with a huge variety of products and advice available.
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 Jon Pressick Eye spy with my little eye, something that is… Beautiful. Pretty. Sexy. Hot. Ravishing. Handsome. Alluring. Stunning. In concluding this series on sex and our five senses, sight was specifically left for last because it is the most dominantly referenced and most readily connective.
By Karma Tantric: I have been a huge fan of erotic massage ever since I encountered my first body to body massage a few years ago. My willingness to try new things unknowingly opened a whole new playground of sexual pleasure into my life. It’s a combination of total sensory relaxation, coupled with the up-close skin to skin sensation that induces some of the most wildly intense orgasms I have ever managed to achieve.
By Hella Rude Try to get used to wearing the plug and allow yourself to forget about it. Pop it in, stick on a movie and veg out. Just relax and do nothing at all. You want to clear your mind of any sexy thoughts and just stop thinking about it. Your body will relax around it and start to get used to it being there, just give it time to acclimatise to the sensations. Lots of people find that when they forget the plug's there, keeping it in is easy work.
By Mel MacFarlane: For those who are enchanted by the romance between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, a reluctant partner proves somewhat of a challenge. My inbox is full of disappointed lovers hoping for the Christian Grey bedroom experience, but struggling with their hapless partner who is quite clearly feeling the pressure.
By Mel MacFarlane: A break up can trigger many different emotions. Some people may feel relief whereas others are heartbroken. After all, it isn’t just the breakdown of the relationship, but your future plans together too. Despite this, many of us still find it hard to resist the temptation of slipping back between the bedsheets with an ex - but why?
Different countries have different rules regarding legal prostitution. If you are travelling to a new part of the world, make sure you know the basics first.
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...
By Jon Pressick: Anger, in sex and relationships, is not an easy matter to discuss. The societally enforced fantasy is that we find someone, we fall in love, we stay in love and we live happily ever after. Never is there a problem. Never is there an argument. Never is there disagreement...
By Ruffled Sheets: You want me to stick that, a long metal spike, in... where? That's what most people think when they're told about sounding. Or, to be more descriptive, urethral sounding, the act of stimulating the inside of the urethra with long, thin implements. It may 'sound' scary (sorry), but it really isn't. In fact, it's a lot of fun and immensely pleasurable.
By Jon Pressick: Think back to the most recent time you found yourself in bed with someone. Now, now, calm down a bit, I imagine there are some pretty sexy thoughts running through your head at the moment. Or, perhaps, maybe you should focus on those thoughts. What are they of? Are you thinking about something you did or something your partner did? Are you envisioning your body being touched or theirs? And whose pleasure is it that you remember the most clearly?
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.
