We all start out as virgins, which is honestly kind of great.
The first times experiencing each potential avenue of sexual pleasure might be clumsy, intimidating and far from how we imagine them going, but they can still be some of the best and most memorable sexual encounters we have.
University life and the culture surrounding it makes for an atmosphere of sex like no other - it's everywhere, and often on many minds.
For some students, though, penetrative sex just isn't what they're after from the uni experience and many make it through the full three years (or more) without once dipping a toe in the pool of student sex.
Whether it's for religious reasons, asexuality, just wanting to wait until you're absolutely certain you've found the right person or anything else - here are our top things you must know for life as a student virgin!
For almost every student, pre-drinks are equally as important as the actual night-out.
Drinking games are a quick, fun, and guaranteed way to get you all in the mood for the night ahead, and most of us have found ourselves reaching for that old favourite, 'I Have Never'.
For those who haven't played, the rules are simple: each person takes it in turn to state something that they've never done, such as, 'I have never had sex in my parents' bed'. Any players who have done it must then take a drink.
However, there comes a point when we begin to run out of ideas, and the suggestions get a little obscure (hello, 'I have never eaten sushi off Drake's stomach'.)
So here are nine easy sex-related statements to inspire you that'll have everyone reaching for their glasses.
It's getting close to that time of year. Halloween has been and gone, and Christmas is just around the corner.
When you're at university, Christmas equals parties... and lots of them. So, if you haven't already, it's probably time to find that perfect dress and (more importantly) something sexy to wear underneath it.
Luckily, we've picked out four fabulous bras that'll keep you looking and feeling fantastic all evening long, whether you're wearing a high-necked bodycon dress or a low-cut jumpsuit.
From longline, to half-cup, to push-up, these bras will keep your girls looking great both in and out of your clothes.
After all, you never know who might be seeing them at the end of the night...
Lube, lube lube… so much choice, so much fun to be had!
Whether you’re a hundred-bottles-hoarder or someone who views it as an occasional necessity, nearly everyone has tried it out at some point.
Despite the mountain of different types available to play with, let’s be honest here: we all have our go-to favourite.
Just like when you order the same meal from your local takeaway as you did last week and the week before, or when you tell yourself you’re going to be daring with your make-up, but end up doing the exact same look you do everyday, we all have our preferences and routines.
So, what does the type of lube you love say about you? Well, just read on to find out.
We've all been there - things are heating up, skin is caressing skin, a partner's breath dancing on your neck, a gentle touch sending your spine ablaze with wonderful shivers...
And then it all goes a bit daft.
We'll say it time and time again, sex is ridiculous and we should embrace that, but every now and then the throes of passion are interrupted by an 'oops' moment that can leave you groaning, and not in the good way.
Here are our top picks of the silliest sex mistakes we all make!
Sex with no strings attached can leave you feeling liberated, confident and deeply satisfied. However, it does also have the potential to go... a little less than well.
Personally, I like to think of a one-night stand as a film sequel. It can be 200 minutes of intense, life-changing passion, much like The Godfather Part II.
It's also possible that you'll want to erase the entire evening from your memory, which is what I wanted to do after watching Grease 2.
So, in order to make sure that your one-night stand doesn't turn into a Mean Girls 2-style one-night flop, I've picked out 4 important things that you need to remember.
Remember, to have a successful one night stand: be S.E.X.Y.
There are so many things to consider when you’re preparing to go to university.
From packing pens to pizza cutters, we all want to feel as prepared as a soldier heading to battle as we move away from home for the first time.
We've all heard that students are notorious for two things: drinking and sex. While this is a stereotype, and certainly not applicable to every student, sex is an important part of many students’ lives and a recurring topic of our conversations.
Therefore, together with a group of my fellow students, I've picked out the top 6 things we wished we had known about sex before starting university.

You know the one. The old reliable that you never can quite replace.
But have you ever wondered - what does your favourite sex toy say about you?
From the classic dildo to the beasty butt plug, we've looked at seven different sex toys, and what we think your preference indicates about your personality.
Whether you’re a seasoned veteran of the world of kink or wouldn’t know a handcuff from a handjob, everyone has at some point been tempted to expand their sexual horizons.
As with trying just about anything new, though, there are a great number of factors that can act as obstacles to a lot of folks.
Whether it’s price, nerves or simply the overabundance of options that’s been stopping you, we’re here to point you in the right direction - whatever aspect of a kinkier sex life appeals to you.
We've picked out four fun and fulfilling ways for you to spice up your sexual routine, and help you and your partner experience even greater thrills.
Being in a long distance relationship is no picnic, and I speak from experience.
I lived twenty-four hours away from my boyfriend for a year, so we hardly ever got to have picnics, let alone have mind-blowing sex with each other.
I have to say, one of the great things about long-distance relationships is that you both get really good at communication; however, long distances couples do tend to get sick of mac-n-cheese masturbation pretty quickly.
(For those of you who haven't heard the term before, The Dicktionary defines mac-n-cheese masturbation as, "Masturbation that is standard, unsurprising, and requires the minimum amount of effort. Just like a bowl of macaroni and cheese".)
So, here are my sex game suggestions for long distance couples. Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favour!
