1. What You're Like in Bed, According to Your Star Sign

    If you want to learn more about your sexuality, I suggest looking to the stars!

    When it comes to determining what kind of a lover you are, who you are most sexually compatible with, and what sex toys you are most likely to love, your horoscope can be a fun place to start - if you believe in the influence of the cosmos, of course.

    From lusty Libras to the sensual Taureans, our tongue-in-cheek foreplay forecast could just hold the key to your next great orgasm.

    We've divided the 12 signs of the zodiac each by their distinct sexual proclivities. Read on to find out what astrology can teach you about what you're like in bed.

    5 Things I Learned About Sex This Year

    They say that you can never really know enough about sex, and that no single person knows it all.

    And, to be honest, if you discovered everything you ever needed to know about getting jiggy with it in the first year, what would there be to look forward to?

    Like lots of people I know, my sex life didn't really take off until I went to university.

    But that just meant 2017 was a year of exciting new discoveries!

    From the thrill of car sex to multiple orgasms, I decided to reflect this December on some of the things my £9,000 a year didn't teach me...

    Gamers Have The Most Sex

    Whether it's reading, running, or socialising, we've all got our favourite me-time hobbies to let off steam after studying or working.

    But have you ever thought about what your hobbies say about your sex life?

    If not, and you're a guy who's a fan of video games, then we've got some good news for you.

    A recent study conducted by a UK voucher company has indicated that of the groups 'trend-setter', 'nerd', 'rocker', 'gym goer' and several others, the group that has the most sex (by a pretty significant margin) was gamers, averaging six times a week.

    That's quite some shag-streak.

    But why might this be?

    To find out more about the button-bashing world of gamer sex, just keep reading.

    Sexy Games (You Won't Play At Christmas Dinner)

    Those lost days between Christmas and New Year (what I like to refer to as the Christmas Perineum or the Holiday Taint) can be a frustrating time.

    Are you fed up with vol-au-vents? Have you seen a certain British secret agent film series a few too many times? Have you had to explain to your aunts and uncles what your degree means again? Has it been too many days since your last orgasm?

    Returning home for Christmas can feel uncomfortable after living independently as a student, especially if you're bringing a significant other along.

    So, to keep the fun going, here are a handful of game ideas for when you go up to bed. All you have to do is make sure your partner knows where the squeaky floorboards are.

    (And remember, the ancient Greeks competed in the nude so there's no reason why you shouldn't.)

    Fetishes Laid Bare Stockings and Tights

    For some people, stockings and tights are merely a reminder of frumpy school uniforms, and that weird, overblown ‘Do Tights Count as Pants?’ controversy that first reared its head around 2012.

    (FYI: the jury is still out on that one.)

    For others, who identify as having a fetish for stockings and/or tights, these garments have far more significance, and a whole lot more sex appeal.

    But what is it about these garments in particular that some people just can't get enough of?

    Well, I won’t keep you in "suspenders" a minute longer: let’s dive right into the world of hosiery fetishes.

    5 Christmas Lingerie Looks (You'll Wear All Year Round)

    With the season of giving in full swing, it can be a challenge to justify treating yourself to something nice, especially when funds are starting to run low.

    However, buying yourself some Christmas lingerie isn't solely for your benefit. The beauty of lingerie is that your partner will appreciate it just as much as (if not more than) you will.

    But if you still have that nagging guilt about spending money on yourself at this time of the year, these lingerie looks are fantastic to wear during any season, transforming these purchases from a Christmas luxury to a year-round necessity, in my opinion.

    Whilst most of these looks are for the ladies, keep reading until the end for a cheeky suggestion of a lingerie look for any man who want to get into the Christmas spirit, too.

    What To Do If You've Got Different Sex Drives

    Among all the billions of people on this planet, the likelihood of you and your partner being the duo that have perfectly matching sex drives is very small.

    One of you may want sex several times a day; the other may be content with getting intimate every couple of weeks.

    But as the nights get colder, it's the perfect opportunity to raise your bedroom temperature, and sync up your libidos.

    Although, as I learned in my mandatory biological behaviour module, individual sex drives are partially innate, there are still lots of things you can do to find the best balance.

    So to help you both I've put together some handy tips to help you match up those sexual appetites.

    Food Foreplay Tips (That Would Make Even Christian Grey Jealous)

    Last week saw the release of the steamy fifth book from international best-selling author, E L James.

    Darker retells the erotic rollercoaster ride that was Fifty Shades Darker, but this time from the perspective of its tortured and enigmatic male lead, Christian Grey himself.

    Though we get some exhilarating new insights into the sexy scenes that we know and love, we also learn more about Christian's tangled relationships with Elena, Leila, and his mother, as well as greater understanding of how a 27-year-old got that damn rich.

    But the scenes that have got everyone talking don't involve floggers, whips, or nipple clamps: they involve food.

    More specifically, a carton of Ben and Jerry's, and a chicken stir fry.

    If, like Ana and Christian, you want to involve something a little sweet (or savoury) in your lovemaking, we've whipped up our favourite food sex tips to make it extra-delicious.

    6 Lingerie Gifts For When You Don't Know Her Dress Size

    Christmas gift shopping is a minefield, especially when you're a student with limited funds.

    And why won't anyone just come straight out and tell you what they want for Christmas? Why must we continue to play this inane guessing game year after year?

    Michael Bublé is blaring from every department store speaker, and if it's not him crooning in your ear, it's Mariah Carey, declaring that all she wants for Christmas is you.

    But you've not got time to fulfil Mariah's yuletide desires - because you've forgotten your other half's dress size. Is she a size 12, or a size 14? Is it a size 6 - or was that her shoe size?

    Get it wrong, and you will have rendered your gift uncomfortable, useless, and potentially offensive.

    Luckily, there's a simpler way: take a look at our top 6 one-size lingerie picks to find the perfect gift, regardless of dress size.
