Whatever the title of your favourite erotica, we can agree that there truly is something out there for everyone - and yes, that last one really is a thing.
But imagine if Homer had turned his hand to writing bonkbusters instead of epic poetry? Or Charles Dickens suddenly had a revelation about what rhymes with 'cities'?
In this extensive (and irreverant) list of 30 literary favourites, we look at the titles that our best-loved authors could have used had their prose taken a turn for the kinkier.
When writing this blog, I found myself stuck in a rut as I stubbornly held on to my own answer to this question, which is “no, absolutely not”.
But I wanted to explore it further, as I know plenty of others who’ve had experiences different to my own.
So, I asked some friends.
Every single one of them said “no, but…” and continued on with a story of an ex who felt inadequate whenever they used a sex toy, so they hid it from their partner.
This made me realise that the question has a tonne of variables, and is a lot more complex than how it first appears.
Televisions may have been using remote controls since the 1950s, but remote controls for sex toys are relatively - and excitingly! - new.
Even now, we've come a long way from where we started, with toys such as
app-controlled love eggs that can be operated from anywhere in the world. Thanks, Internet!
But what is it that makes
remote control vibrators such an enticing part of today's high-tech sex toy world?
Read on to find reasons you need one in your life, and discover which is the best remote toy for you.
Double penetration (DP) describes the simultaneous penetration of the body at two points.
It is also used to describe a scenario where two people use the same toy at the same time, like a double-ended dildo.
Not just for adult performers or lesbian couples, double penetration can be enjoyed by everyone.
Some people enjoy the feeling of several orifices being penetrated at once.
Simultaneous stimulation of the bum, the mouth and the vagina (if you have one) can make for mind-blowing sex if it's done correctly.
Other couples want to experience what it's like to use the same toy together, which can be intimate and arousing at all once.
You may enjoy double penetration for no clearly defined reason at all, and that's totally cool as well.
There's no need to justify your sexual pleasure to anyone.

Even if we don’t like to admit it, lots of people still think of foreplay as the process leading up to the ‘main event’ of penetration – and the male orgasm. Foreplay is considered expendable, a luxury that can be enjoyed on a lazy Sunday afternoon but is often omitted during a weekday quickie.
Not only is this attitude towards foreplay old-fashioned, but it’s also overly heteronormative. There’s nothing wrong with a quickie, but I think it’s time that we acknowledge the importance of foreplay and stop considering it ‘lesser’ than penetrative sex.
As a big believer in the importance of foreplay, here are my 6 reasons why we should all be focusing less on the big O and more on the big F.
