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 Red Divine: Ahh the Pleasure Panel, I’ve missed you guys! Seems like an age since I’ve been here and it almost feels like coming home... So a massive thank you to Cara Sutra and DewciBox for the opportunity to review the DewciBox Relaxing & Intimate Box.
By Random Red Rose: DewciBox have decided to try and help out the lost, confused and indecisive (this is definitely me sometimes!) by offering a sex toy subscription box service. Every month they send a little box of goodies to your door. No choosing required. What's inside the little black box will be a complete surprise!
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.
It’s important to learn about foreplay and how to do it (and do it well, don't forget) so that you can become a more caring lover for your partner. Not only will you soon be named their Ultimate Sex God or Goddess, you will also make sure that sex is actually comfortable for both of you, which in turn will lead to you having even more (moar!) sex. What’s not to like?
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.
By Cara Sutra: Keeping the fires of passion stoked and alive in a long term relationship can be incredibly challenging. You love your partner dearly, but trying to capture that first impetuous rush of emotion and the sensations of being newly in love is difficult even for couples with incredibly strong emotional bonds.
The Woman took him on that offer, she slipped off her panties, showing off her perfect neatly trimmed bush. The Boy admired her sublime womanly magnificence with an infatuated eye. “Of all the pussies I've seen, yours ranks as number one. It looks warm and inviting. And, best of all, the carpets perfectly match the drapes, a plus in my books.”
Luxury sex toys offer their owners reliability instead of a quick and often disappointing buzz which fizzles faster than pound shop batteries. Luxury toys last for many years, are made from tested body safe materials, often come with a satisfaction and manufacturing quality guarantee and therefore lead to worry-free masturbation and sex.

It’s an indisputably romantic introduction to bondage and some would question whether romancing up sex into a kink version really had any connection to traditional BDSM at all. The items in this kit are soft, playful and don’t pose any intimidation or threat in a physical way. There is barely the essence of any power exchange or control at all - a mere hint if you have a good imagination. I prefer my bondage items to be fastenable, louder, more confident. I want the clunk click of metal whether a buckle fastening or trigger clip or padlock. I don’t need frills and soft storage pouches and items which can be mistaken for everyday objects like sleep masks and ties; I have no qualms about being proud of my BDSM accessories such as collars, ball gags and thick, durable restraints. As such this is a cute kit to own but I feel that I enjoy bondage in a different way to those who would get more out of this kit.
This Bijoux Indiscrets Poeme Wild Strawberry Body Paint (available here) is so saucy you can drizzle it wherever you like for an any-time-of-the-day dessert.
By Miss Emma MM An incredibly quick rundown of The Picture of Dorian Gray is that it centers on a naive, beautiful young man named Dorian. He becomes fast friends with what were basically two closeted queens in that time period. Lord Henry in particular sets out to corrupt Dorian. Meanwhile Basil paints Dorian, over and over, until his portrait is perfect. He gifts the painting to Dorian who finds out something quite peculiar. It turns out that any “sin” he commits doesn’t mar his actual appearance but only that of the painting. He goes through society for many years without aging or showing any wear even though he makes progressively more startling choices.
The Age of Reason scarves are part of a collection of luxurious fashion accessories created with the help of designer Ali Mapletoft. Her work has featured in such widely read publications as Stylist Magazine, Grazia, Red Magazine, In Style, The Times, The Telegraph, You Magazine, Metro, Drapers, Womenswear Buyer and Vogue online. Naturally I was curious when Age of Reason contacted me via Twitter to invite me to take a look at the more naughty corner of their prestigious online shop.
How do I know? Because I’ve tried it. I’ve tried to give away my Domination as a free for all - to see it as a fun activity. To welcome all, with the open arms of the naive n00b and simply try to enjoy dominating those around who state that they’re submissive or want to be trained. What did I get? Hurt. Hurt, used, lied to, ditched and almost broken as a Mistress and as a Domme. Not quite, but nearly. I have been used as a service Top without my consent many times. Now, if I feel like someone comes to me and requests Domination, that they need a downpayment of some kind. If that downpayment is simply getting me to start their training with a great big grin on my face, then that will do for me. Not a, 'oh for fuck’s sake not another demanding little shit'. Not a, 'oh why yes of course I’ll meet you and see to all your fantasies and then even fuck you because I’m just an unpaid sex worker'.
I’ve been writing erotic romance since the beginning of this century (doesn’t that sound impressive!) and whenever I’m asked I tell people my husband made me do it. He encouraged me to write a dream into story, then to publish it online (Literotica.com if you were wondering) and the rest, as they say, is history. I had my first story published in 2006 and now I’ve got stories out with Cleis Press, Mischief, Xcite, House of Erotica and Totally Bound and I’m even an editor these days, a co-editor anyway with my mate Lucy Felthouse. Wonders will never cease! I’m also part of a merry band of smut authors called the Brit Babes. Check them out for quality assured erotica that covers many genres and heat levels!
By Cara Sutra: If you don't have a partner, the 'hearts and chocolate brigade' can really grate on you every February. Get loved up! It's Valentine's Day! Are there any sexy single Valentine's Day ideas to help you enjoy a spectacular solo day?
Janine Ashbless is unusual in the erotica genre in that she prefers to write fantasy in the other sense – swords ‘n’ sandals, contemporary paranormal, fairytale, and stories based on mythology and folklore. She wants to write about magic and mystery, dangerous power dynamics, borderline terror, and the not-quite-human. Occasionally she does a bit of romance too, but don't rely on her giving you a happy-ever-after.
