Consent is king: are you ready for Sexual Health Week 2018?

It’s probably fair to say that most of us think we’re great at establishing consent. After all, no one wants to imagine they are encouraging people to do things they’re not comfortable with – not just in the bedroom but elsewhere in life. If you ask around the office to see who wants to come […]

Sexual positioning equipment for when you’re… umm… ‘sweeping the special chimney’

How often do you bump uglies? Perhaps more importantly, how likely is it that the phrase ‘bump uglies’ has turned you off so hard that you’re going to struggle to ever get turned on again? This week, in lamenting the things that can get in the way of a good sex life, a Times journalist […]

World Cup Top Trumps: sex toys that are better than the World Cup trophy

It’s not coming home after all, but honestly: can any of us say we haven’t had a hell of a lot of fun? I watched the nailbiting semi- final against Croatia in the pub, and even in the haze of disappointment afterwards, there was a general feeling that the England team did us proud. They […]

It’s not just fun – masturbation is also really good for you! And because May is Masturbation Month, I thought it’d be a great excuse to chat through some of the ways wanking can enhance your life.
