Summer is here, the temperature has already been in the high 20s prompting the UK to strip naked and head to the beach. The English Summer is not known for reliability or longevity, though, so, if you are among the lucky ones who are flying off to some far off exotic place this summer then read on. This two-part guide will prep you up with all the best advice – how to pack sex toys for air travel, the best products to take with you abroad and the best toys to spice things up when out and about.
Choosing a lube is like choosing a bar of chocolate: you know you definitely want something, but dammit all the options look so good it's impossible to decide on just one. Sliquid lube is exactly like this, because there are so many different varieties, all of which look equally excellent. But don't panic – I am here to talk you through some of the options, so you can make sure you get the right one for you.
It's rare that I get to do sex and science fiction in the same blog post, but this week the opportunity came hurtling straight out of the sky, like the asteroid in Armageddon. A top scientist has warned that NASA needs to study sex in space as a matter of urgency, and I am happy to volunteer my services...
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.
Anal sex toys are one of my favourite things to collect. Not only is it handy to have a variety of different sizes and shapes of butt plug (because everyone's butt-related tolerance is different), but also because if guys are a little nervous or unsure about anal play, sometimes just showing them a rainbow of different anal toy possibilities gets them hot under the collar. Anal play isn't all giant dildos and fisting – despite some people's misconceptions that 'anal sex' equals 'extreme.' If it only ever meant hardcore stretching and pounding I'd probably never have fallen in love with anal play. As it is, lots of early encounters with smaller objects, vibrating anal toys, and lubed-up fingers ensured I fell in love with butt stuff and that love will last a lifetime.
Strap yourselves in - it's time for my semi-annual rant about weird sex toy myths. On the course of my travels throughout the internet, I often come up against beliefs that strike me as bizarre, or just plain wrong. So to arm yourself against these forces of ignorant darkness, I hand you the light-sabre of sex toy mythbusting. Enjoy.
Having told you last week that you can absolutely have too much of a good thing, I'm going to completely contradict myself this week and name one thing that I, personally, don't think I can ever have too much of: underwear. Sexy bras, comfortable knickers, and every single thing in between. Let's have a look at some of the hottest corsets, thongs and other lingerie that would sit pretty nicely in your underwear drawer.
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. So initial reports this week that people are having less sex than we did 20 years ago might give you cause for alarm. Don't worry, though, I am here to calm your worried, potentially sex-starved mind.
One of the most frequently asked questions of a sex blogger (well, of this sex blogger at any rate) is 'how do I get my partner to do this thing in bed?' 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.
It sounds like an oxymoron, but strapless strap-ons are definitely A Thing. Designed to provide delicious sensations to both the giver and the receiver, these unique toys are well worth a try if you're a fan of pegging. But how the hell do you use them? Allow me to explain...
