The Top 10 Sex Mistakes People Are Still Making

the top 10 sex mistakes people are still making“Faking an orgasm is not only dishonesty to your partner and disrespect to yourself, it also stifles any sex life improvements which could otherwise happen. Instead of faking, talk and make the efforts required towards mutual satisfaction during sex. And remember that good sex doesn’t necessarily include orgasms.”

How To Give Him An Amazing Handjob

sex tips | sex advice sex toy guides relationship advice“Hands are seriously fantastic. Not only are they… well, handy for carrying out our everyday tasks, they can also give exquisite sexual pleasure. We can cradle a lover’s face as we kiss them, undress each other as fast or slowly as we wish, and stimulate external and internal body parts with skilful precision. In this article I’m going to reveal how to give him an amazing handjob.”

Why I Hate Vibrating Cock Rings (& What We Use Instead)

why we hate vibrating cock rings and what we use instead“If you’re a regular sex toy shopper, you’ll have noticed vibrating cock rings amongst the offerings for men and couples. Vibrating cock rings are designed to offer penis-owners the pleasure of vibration, as well as the tantalising restriction which encourages a firmer, longer lasting erection. You might see these sex toys labelled as ‘love rings’ or ‘couples cock rings’ when designed for penis-in-vagina sex use. In that situation they claim to provide the woman with clitoral pleasure, as the vibrations are felt against her vulva and clitoral areas during sexual intercourse.”

Our Favourite Sex Positions – And Why We Love Them

our favourite sex positions“Are there some sex positions you find yourself ‘coming’ back to time after time? My partner and I definitely have our favourite sex positions, and in the past I’ve worried that we might be getting stuck in a rut. A rut that, admittedly, feels so good. But then when I went through the sex positions we enjoy on a regular basis, it turns out we enjoy more variety than I’d feared.”

Goodbye Dry Spell! 7 Ways To Reignite Your Libido

sex tips | sex advice sex toy guides relationship advice“I get phases where I’m not as interested in sex as I used to be, and I worry that this is it. I’m in my late 30s; I’m finally at a point where I hate sex, I’ll never want sex again and nothing will ever turn me on. At other times of my life I feel just as horny as I was in my early 20s. When you’re enduring a dry spell is there anything you can do to reignite your libido?”

 

Social Media Filters & Other Ways To Stay Calm On Twitter & Facebook

By Cara Sutra: Social media can be intense at the best of times. As this certainly isn’t the best of times, social platforms have fast become hot hubs of fear-mongering, panic and the high emotion that comes with them. For those who need to use social media like Twitter & Facebook as part of their job – or those who just have the 21st century addiction – it can be near impossible to visit socials and remain unaffected by the constant stream of negativity.

Black Friday & Cyber Monday: The Sexiest Offers

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.

Forget Sex Positions; Hello Sex Locations

By Cara Sutra: When you’ve been having sex for a while -and especially with the same sexual partner- you’ll likely find a sex position that really works for you. You’ll enjoy having sex in that particular way because it pushes your buttons. And that’s ok, until someone comes along and tells you you’ve got to ‘spice it up’ and ‘try these new positions today’. If you really want to try something new, why not consider sex locations rather than sex positions?

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.

Despair Over The Stench Of A Presidential Trump

By Cara Sutra: Shocked. Devastated. Emotionally drained. Physically wiped-out. Like many other people, I’m feeling the effects of a particularly grim year. We’ve lost so many creative, courageous and inspiring people from the world of media and the arts. The world barely has time to move on from one catastrophic happening before another tragedy, natural or man-made, strikes, bringing death but also terror and fear-inspired divisions among those left alive.

Lovehoney Moves Affiliate Scheme From Paid on Results To Webgains

By Cara Sutra: The big news this week has got to be Lovehoney’s move from Paid on Results affiliate platform to Webgains. This was a huge blow for many affiliates, who like myself have written numerous posts and reviews containing PoR links – as well as all the social media updates out here containing PoR links too. Once the Paid on Results Lovehoney programme ends, those links will all be broken – leading nowhere, affecting blogs, readers, traffic numbers and of course, affiliate commissions.

Pushing Limits: A Natural Power Exchange Progression?

By Cara Sutra: In a D/s relationship, is there any room for pushing limits? Or should both partners just find out what makes them tick and keep right on doing those things without moving the goalposts?

New LoveArc Harnesses For Doxy Wands & Flared Base Dildos

By Cara Sutra: The LoveArc is such an ingenious bedroom accessory. You can find more info and loads of photos in my 2015 review, but as an overview it's a beautiful, smooth, brushed aluminium arch to which you can attach suction base dildos to ride them easily, comfortably and hands-free. And now there's even more ways to enjoy your LoveArc, with the new LoveArc harnesses for Doxy Wands and flared base dildos.

Do You Feel Guilty About Secret Sadistic Desires?

By Cara Sutra: “I’m a vicious sadist - and I secretly harbour cruel, sadistic desires.” It sounds like the opening line in some sort of therapy group for criminals, doesn’t it? However, there are plenty of people out there who have sadistic desires in a consensual, power exchange way. Do you identify as a sadist in the BDSM community? Do you ever feel guilty about your sadistic desires?

Is Shower Sex Worth The Hassle?

By Cara Sutra: I’ve had some fantastic shower sex in the past. I’ve also had some pretty naff shower sex, and some shower sex which has been, quite frankly, dangerous. I’ve been thinking about shower sex recently because we’ve just moved into a sparkly new house, and have a couple of showers… one in the en-suite, and one over-bath in the family bathroom. Along with nostalgic memories of shower fun I’ve been thinking something else, too.

My Single Sex Life: Jealousy

By Cheryl Kaye: “Jealousy can lead you to the very places where you most need healing. It can be your guide into your own dark side and show you the way to total self-realisation.” Deborah Anapol, Love without Limits.

BDSM: When Communication Stops After Consent

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?
