"You and me, baby, ain't nothing but mammals!"
When The Bloodhound Gang sang these poignant lyrics, they probably weren't singing about the fact that most of us are naturally capable of growing pubic hair.
But I like to think that they were.
Scientifically, sure, most adults have pubes. But historically and culturally, we have subjected these downstairs hairs to a hell of a lot. So I decided to take a look into the hair-raising history of pubes.
If, like me, you thought waxing your bush was a fairly modern phenomenon, you'd be wrong. People have been man-scaping and trimming their lady gardens for thousands of years.
Intrigued? Then just keep reading for a truly hair-razing history lesson.
We all know there are supposedly those unspoken 'rules' regarding sex and dating, and while some of us subscribe to them, others regard them as a complete fallacy.
Even for those that have no interest in restricting themselves and their love lives to those imaginary rules, the topic of "when should I?" pertaining to sex can often make one pause for thought.
But in a world much changed from what it was a mere few decades ago, we have to wonder if these beliefs are still relevant.
Casual and non-traditional relationships are much more widely accepted, and being open about individual sexual needs without necessarily needing a relationship has become as easy as clicking a button on your phone.
So, is it still 'best practice' to wait 3 dates before sleeping with someone you want a relationship with?
The best way I can express my views on the matter is to take you through some of my past experiences and their varying results...

2016 – possibly one of the craziest years on record! – is at an end and now we look forward to the adventure that will be 2017.
The start of a new year gives many of us a chance to take stock, re-evaluate and do some reflection on what happened in the previous year, and what we’d love to work on, try out or do just a little differently.
Some people can go a little overboard with their goals and resolutions, but remember, the year doesn't necessarily have to mean you should aim for a whole new you or a vastly new life.
If you had an awesome 2016, don’t feel like 2017 should have to be a complete turn-around in a new direction… keep heading on that awesome path!
That being said, of course no one’s life is perfect, and no one’s sex life is 100% flawless. Even if yours is 99% flawless, there is no shame in aiming for improvement and further experimentation, so I present some Sexual New Year’s Resolutions that don’t require a total sex life shake-up, but can still have a positive impact all the same…
The year 2017 is imminently upon us and everyone's minds are awash with resolutions, plans and goals for themselves and self-improvement.
So, naturally, we see this as the perfect time to add a little sparkle to your sex life as well!
To help with this we've compiled a month-by-month list of ways to spice up your sex life, keeping things fresh and interesting all year round.
With a theme for each month, this is the perfect jumping off point for invigorating your sex life - but don't feel the need to stop here, of course.
If there's a month that either doesn't apply to you, or that you just don't fancy, add your own and let us know in the comments below.
In the last few years, the term, 'polyamory' has begun to appear more and more in the media. But what does it mean?
To put it super simply, polyamory is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as, 'the practice of engaging in multiple sexual relationships with the consent of all the people involved'.
Whilst this is true, polyamory is also so much more than that.
So, with this in mind, we've collected some of the most common questions about polyamory to show you what it's all about.

As 2017 approaches, we all begin to think about what new things we'd like to try in the new year, and what aspects of our lives we'd like to change for the better.
Whether it's joining the university gym or trying to get to your 9 a.m. lectures each week, many New Year's resolutions are well-intentioned, but tricky to keep going.
After all, student life is supposed to be full of fun and excitement, not swapping Jägerbombs for early nights; so, why not make a list of much more fun things to enjoy in the New Year instead?
By mixing things up in the bedroom, you get to explore new experiences, reinvigorate your sex life, and make some sexy resolutions that you're actually likely to keep.
Here, I've written a list of seven things every student should try in the New Year which are bound to give you a sense of satisfaction no gym membership ever could.

Regardless of what anyone tells you, taking nude photos is an art form.
Though many of us may just believe it's a matter of 'point-and-snap', there's actually a lot more to it if you want your photo to do your body justice.
Just as with any good photo, you have to think about framing, lighting, position, and many other things if you really want to get that jaw-dropping effect.
While most of us are aware that a lot of work goes into a fantastic sensual photo, it should nonetheless look like it's effortless.
So here are a few tips to help ensure your pictures are of top quality, every single time.
Christmas gifting can be a real minefield, particularly when you're choosing something as intimate as a sex toy or lingerie.

The resident Lovehoney experts - Tilly, Jess, and Sammi (a.k.a me) - have taken on the role of Santa's little helpers, with a series of festive videos to guide you through both naughty and nice gift-giving.
