    First Thing's First, What's a Sissy?

    Let's start with the Oxford dictionary definition...

    Sissy Definition (noun): Derrived from the word "sister", a "sissy" is a person regarded as effeminate or cowardly.

    Synonyms: weakling, coward, wimp, wuss, pushover, effeminate, unmanly, womanish

    Now, without getting hung up on the social political correctness (or lack there of) of it all, and why "wimp" and "woman" are synonymous...

    (DOWN WITH THE PATRIARCHY)

    ...let's break down what this means for sex play.

    Esther de la Ford for the Lovehoney Head Board

    Recently, we were asked the question: "How does one begin to feel sex positive when sex has not always been a positive experience?". So we reached out to therapist and coach Esther De La Ford for her advice on how to rediscover your sexual happiness.

    If I could give anyone who has experienced sexual trauma only 2 pieces of advice, it would be these.

    • Let yourself completely off the hook. Ditch expectations. Be open to the high possibility of tears, breakdowns, and your body and brain just not playing ball sometimes. Then love yourself anyway.
    • Throw everything you've got at it and see what sticks. Don't only try one mindfulness technique, or go to a few sessions at a Rape and Sexual Abuse Clinic you're not really into, or read the first 3 chapters of a tantra book a mate suggested and then forget about it. Try EVERYTHING. This is your life, your body, your sexual wellbeing. It deserves everything you've got.

    These are the two pieces of advice I would give if we were meeting in a pub toilet and didn't have very long to chat, but thankfully we have a bit more time here.

    So here are my top tips for cultivating a healthy space to start enjoying sex again after sexual trauma.

    Are you new to anal pleasure, or tried a beginner's butt plug and want to know what other exciting toys are out there?

    Whether you'd like to try something new, alone or with a partner, we have everything you need to explore the exhilarating world of anal play.

    Our handy guide to the top 10 anal toys will lead the way through our plethora of anal pleasure products to help you find the bum-loving toy that's perfect for you.

    Don't forget to add a good quality anal lube and our best-selling anal douche to your basket for extra pleasurable playtimes.

    Sexiest Scents As Proven By Science

    Have you ever caught a whiff of someone, and suddenly they’re really attractive to you? You’re not alone: there’s a link between seduction and smell that’s as old as civilisation itself.

    The sciencey bit: When an odour stimulates the receptors in our nose, they pass electrical impulses (or patterns) to our brain which the brain interprets and perceives as a smell. Our sense of smell is 10,000 times more sensitive than any of our other senses, and recognition of smell is immediate.

    Psychologists believe that the area of the brain that processes scent is also the part that processes emotions — and certain odours can make us feel stimulated, aroused, and excited.

    With that in mind, here are some of the sexiest scents, as proven by science, guaranteed to get you in the mood and more.

    What's a dildo?

    A dildo is a phallic object designed for sexual play and is usually used to stimulate internal erogenous zones.

    A dildo has no moving parts and is not the same a vibrator (though they are often confused with one another).

    Good fact huh? You can have that for free.
