This week our A-Z of Sex brings us to ‘H’. Can you think of any more?
Hand job – Slang that generally refers to manually stimulating a man’s penis through to orgasm.
Hard on – Slang term for an erect penis.
Hormones – Hormones are part of the endocrine system, which is a very complex system that regulates many of our body’s functions. Specifically, hormones are chemicals in the body that are responsible for much of our growth and development. Hormones control our reproductive system, muscle growth, blood sugar levels, digestion, energy levels, sexual development and much more. Hormones are part of falling in love, feeling horny or hungry and bonding with another person.
Handcuffs – Handcuffs are two cuffs, usually made of metal and linked by a short chain that can lock around a person’s wrists to restrain them. You could also restrain someone by putting one cuff around their wrist and the other around a bedpost or other immovable object. Whether you’re into full on bondage or just sexy role play, handcuffs are a fun or necessary part of your adult toy box.
Heterosexual – This is a term that refers to a person who is attracted to or has sex with people of the opposite gender to them. It is also used as an identity, as in ‘I am heterosexual’.
Horny – Slang term for feeling sexually aroused, i.e. ‘Boy am I horny, I could do with some good lovin right now!’ or for something that you find sexually arousing, i.e. ‘The way he moves his hips is really horny’ or ‘That DJ plays really horny music’.
Head – Slang term for oral sex – can apply to all genders.
