Not only do they prevent unplanned pregnancies and STIs, they let us experience new sensations, they help sex last longer, and - if we are being really honest – they make the post-coital clean up oh so simple.
Condoms only want what’s best for us, yet we make them the butt of our jokes, we use them for bizarre internet challenges, and we don’t appreciate them as much as we should.
It’s a modern-day injustice, so I’m here to play devil’s advocate for the humble condom. Brace yourself – I’m about to drop some serious truth bombs.
Breakups are a natural part of life, and come in all shapes and sizes, just like relationships. And, just like in relationships, not all aspects of a breakup are always black and white. One of the big questions that comes up time and time again is a simple one - is it OK to have sex with an ex?
The biggest thing to remember here is that, in a weird kind of way, a breakup is another facet of the relationship itself, and as such the exact details of the breakup will be as unique to each situation as the relationship itself was.
When it comes to ex sex, the most important aspect to take into account is how exactly the relationship ended. Was it mutual or one sided? Calm and accepting or explosive and painful?
These details can make all the difference, so let's look at how.
Sex is wonderful, and there are probably few of us reading this who would disagree.
But, at times, it can be frustrating, embarrassing, and downright awkward. The most common woe I hear from friends is that they aren't getting what they want in the bedroom. Sure, sometimes what they want is a champagne breakfast in bed, but we can't all have that everyday.
I'm talking about getting what you want between the sheets, and for some, the prospect of talking to a partner about this can be a scary thought. But it doesn't have to be.
The root cause for most people is that they aren't confident in communicating their desires, and for some, they aren't even sure what it is that they want.
Never fear! With these top tips you will soon have all of the tools you need to know what you want in bed - and how to ask for it.
If you're trying to watch what you eat, Easter can be a tricky holiday to navigate. Soon, Easter eggs will be thrust in our faces by every major supermarket chain and this aggressive marketing tactic is going to leave you with a bigger chocolate craving than Augustus Gloop.
If you want to beat the chocolate giants at their own game, you have to think outside the chocolate box. Get yourself an entirely different type of egg this Easter.
An egg that can make your love life more risky and exciting.
An egg that can give you stronger orgasms.
An egg that can strengthen your vaginal muscles.
"What is this magical, orgasm-giving, muscle-strengthening egg you speak of, Audrey?!" I hear you ask. "And why should I get one?"
Well, my friends, it's called a love egg. And you won't find one in the Easter Bunny's basket - but you definitely will on Lovehoney.
