Sex toys used to be a bit frowned on, kept hidden under stuff in the bottom drawer or in a box under the bed. But now, people are much more open about their use and their benefits. They can help you enjoy a range of sensations and have fun. But if you are looking to buy your first sex toy, it can still be intimidating, even when you use a top quality website like Pleasure Delights.
There have probably been a million and one how to articles connected to BDSM after the success of THAT book, you know the one with all the grey and the lip biting and stuff. Well, I’m going to add to that pile but today I’m going to focus in on one aspect used in BDSM that can be seen in more vanilla play too. Bondage.
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 Jon Pressick Movember is again on us and you're going to start seeing the scraggly, the bushy, the unkempt and the styled. I'm not talking about the resurgence in bush, I'm referring to the mo's that will soon crawl across faces to mark this now annual tradition of awareness on prostate (and other) health concerns.
By Hella Rude Today a lady mentioned that she hates her inner labia. This statement always sends a pang to my heart because I feel that female anatomy is so misunderstood. It is not part of our culture to understand the intimate and intricate detailing of our bodies, especially those parts which offer the most pleasure.
Fellow writers of all things erotic: we’re in the business of being sensual, but today I don’t mean that in the smexy- sexy way we usually do. I’m talking about including all the various senses in your sex scenes. It sounds pretty simple and kind of obvious but believe you me it isn’t as straight forward as it looks.
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?
Mostly, sex gets defined as something that men do to women rather than something women and men enjoy together. A lot of sex-related advice to women still seems to have a starting point of sexual pleasure being something women ration out to men: we bargain with it, treat it as a kind of currency. It might not always be so crude as ‘wait till you’ve got his ring on your finger before you let him finger your ring’ nowadays, but so-called ‘sexperts’ are still raking it in by advising women to withhold sex, no matter how horny they are, as a way of manipulating men into giving them something (other than multiple orgasms) that they actually want.
By Hella Rude It has been a privilege to have known Emma Delves-Broughton since 2004. I had admired Emma's photography for some time and her Libidex Seasonal spread (shot on location in Bath) had adorned my 16-year-old self's bedroom walls. Such hero worship.

We’ve all heard stories of how porn helped Blu Ray succeed over HD DVD. Those who are a little bit older may even remember stories of how porn helped VHS triumph over Betamax. But what if porn statistics could be used for more than just stories about antiquated video formats? What if these numbers could be used to predict the entertainment medium of the future?
By Hella Rude I had a silly idea about a sexual equation to create an Averaged Singleton Statement to determine a single person's average number of lovers. A true reflection of our sexual habits would take into account the number of relationships we have had, how long those relationships last and the number of years we have been sexually active, so why not use that information to create a generalised representation of our single habits?
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.
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 Jon Pressick There is something delightful about feeling someone’s tongue on your body. Whether it be a seductive lick of the neck, running along your lips in a deep kiss, trailing down your body or being buried in the delicious destination, our tongues play a major role in sexual excitement. While it may be easy to fall in love with what your lover does to you, think about what it is like to put your tongue to use lapping at your lover.

By Cheryl Kaye: I ended my first column with the news that I had joined two dating sites, and hoping that by the time I came to write this column I would have been on some dates. I’ve been on one, and I will tell you about it but today I want to talk about the sites I used, and the men on them.
By Mel MacFarlane: Between juggling feeds, changes, routines, weaning and play dates it’s hard to forget that you are in fact, a couple. As much as we love our children and they should absolutely be our priority, we also need to remember to work on our relationships too. After all, they also need to be nurtured.
