    Female ejaculation - or squirting - has been around for centuries, but only recently has it become a desirable addition to a lady’s sexual repertoire. Previously, the fluids resulting from female ejaculation were often dismissed as peeing during sex, leaving naturally talented squirters stressed and embarrassed.

    We now know the liquid is closer to what’s secreted by the male prostate when stimulated, leading many to refer to the Skene’s glands (the glands around the G-spot responsible for the secretions) as ‘the female prostate’.

    And, most importantly, squirting is now celebrated! Most lovers now see the gushing liquid as an amazing physical expression of arousal, and women are clamouring to experience the exotic sensations a squirting orgasm brings.

    Want to join Club Squirt? This guide will help, but like everything in the world of sex, you’ll need to spend some time figuring out what works best for you and your body.


    Before you begin

    Girl with waterpistolIf you are in a relationship, it’s advisable to bring it up with your partner before surprising them with your new skillset. Although obviously your bodily secretions are your own business, it’s worth giving their preference some consideration.

    Also bear in mind that for many women it’s a skill that, once mastered, may start happening involuntarily.

    The good news is that thanks to a litany of recent porn videos starring female ejaculation, many people are already fully signed up to the idea and eager to reenact the film fantasy in their own home.

    Relaxation is a key aspect of squirting orgasms, so ensure you stay chilled as you prepare.

    You can learn solo or with a partner, so pick whichever you prefer.

    Make sure you clear your calendar - potentially over multiple sessions - and don’t put yourself under pressure. Use the bathroom beforehand, and put some towels down.

    If you're looking for lifelike internal stimulation, a realistic dildo could be the perfect sex toy for you.

    Designed to look and feel like the real thing, realistic dildos are easy to use and available in plenty of shapes and sizes, making them a great first sex toy for beginners.

    Whether you're looking for something firm, flexible or floppy, we have plenty of realistic dildos to choose from.

    s.HAIR Intimate RazorJust as with the hair on our heads, eyebrows, and faces, pubic hairstyles come in a wide array of shapes and colours. Some people like it balder than a US Congressman; some people like it neatly trimmed; and others prefer to follow the spirit of Woodstock, and let it run wild and free.

    So, should you shave your short 'n' curlies? The truth is, there's no right or wrong answer to that question. Those who advocate for the full Hollywood (that is, to say, entirely bare) say that it feels cleaner, is less hassle for their sexual partners, and increases sensation.

    The Full-Bush-Administration, however, would counter that pubic hair is there to protect your sensitive areas, makes you less prone to catching STIs, and also helps to retain libido-boosting pheromones that make you even more sexually appealing.

    Many also find their partner's personal preference often influences their own choice, but when it comes down to it, the decision (and the razor) are entirely in your hands. If you are, however, in the staggering 92% of women and 83% of men who primp their pubes in some way, then just read on for our finest styling tips.

    If you like the look of shiny clothing, you may have already tried PVC or patent leather. The next step for many people is trying latex or rubber. You don't have to be a hardened fetishist or fashionista to try latex and this guide will help you choose the right size latex wear and explain how to put it on.

    Before you start: check that you do not have a latex allergy. Cut cheap latex gloves into strips and place them in various places against your skin (under a bra strap, inside a sock, inside a waistband) and, after an hour or two, check for any signs of irritation.

    You may be thinking; “But I've used condoms, I know I'm not allergic.” You should still patch test various parts of your body before encasing yourself in the stuff, just to be sure.

    How to Choose the Perfect Role Play Costume

    For some of us, the words, ‘role play’ send a shiver of excitement down our spines; for others, it’s more a chill of fear that reminds us of uncomfortable team-building exercises.

    But using role play in the bedroom is about much more than indulging your long-held and unspoken fantasy about that traffic warden who once fined you.

    By adopting a different persona, many people find it easier to open up and explore situations and practises that they would never normally broach, allowing them to experience greater fulfillment and also bringing them closer to their partner.

    But how do you get into it without feeling a little, well, ridiculous? Well, just read on below to see not only how you can choose the scenario (and outfit) that's right for you, but how to fully enjoy your foray into the world of character play.

    Collars are a visual symbol of submission and control, and are often worn in the bedroom (or fetish club!) by submissive partners to indicate their position. Collars can also be practical, often with hardware to allow leads and other restraints to be attached to them.

    One of the questions we get asked a lot here at Lovehoney is “How do you buy a bondage collar?” This comprehensive guide aims to answer all of the questions that arise when you think about this seductive form of restraint, providing you with the information needed to enjoy collar and leash play with every sub and slave you meet!

     

    If the idea of mixing a little pain with your pleasure appeals, make sure you have the right tools to make the most of your fantasy.

    If you want to increase the sensitivity of your partner’s skin, a spanking paddle or flogger will help set their senses alight. If you want to accessorise a dominant persona or make their skin sting, try a riding crop or a traditional cane.

    This guide has some fabulous advice that will have you whipping your partner into a frenzy in no time.
