What counts as 'cheating' to you and your partner? The definition is going to depend on the kind of relationship you have, and what your agreed boundaries are (if you have any!). But thanks to results of a survey this week released by relationship counselling charity Relate, we can have a dig into what other people consider 'cheating', and how the definition might be changing across the generations...
Recently, the fabulous company Desire Cruises got in touch with us to tell us about their latest cruise - one where the main entertainment is - you guessed it - sex! Obviously it is right up my alley, and I am currently trying to persuade my other half that we definitely need to attend. It's got play rooms, clothes-optional swimming and jacuzzi areas, nightly entertainment that includes burlesque and dress-up... oh and the itinerary takes in some beautiful sunny spots. So hotter (in every sense) than any sexy trip you could take in the UK.
For horny layabouts like myself, Bank Holidays are an excellent opportunity to relax, get naked, and catch up on all the sex you were too tired for during the average working week.

It's broadly accepted, in much of the mainstream media, that when it comes to shagging you can never have too much of a good thing.

People with kinks or fantasies that they'd like to share often struggle to broach the subject, worried that their partner might be shocked. And even non-kinky people often want to know how to give their partner direction in bed – showing them what's pleasurable and what isn't without risking hurting their feelings.
The problem with Valentine's Day is that it always falls halfway through the month, which means that if you're looking for last-minute gifts, payday seems a long way away. There are two ways to deal with this problem: first, be organised. Second, find bargains. I'm here to help you do both.
What makes the perfect sexy surprise? Timing is definitely key – you don't want to surprise someone with a romantic, candlelit bedroom if they got home from work so tired they just want to fall asleep. Nor do you want to send a saucy snap when they're in the middle of a family outing.
On top of timing, you've got to pick something that they'll actually like: the most surprising sexy gifts have to be ones that speak to their fantasies as well as yours. It can be tricky. But feel free to learn from my occasional successes and all-too-frequent mistakes: here's my guide on sexy surprises.
