1. inside-sex-tech-hackathon

    Last month, I took the plunge and booked flights to Melbourne and a ticket to my first ever hackathon.

    A hackathon is a problem-solving event. Generally, a whole bunch of strangers team up and design a solution to whatever their problem might be. Attendees usually include softwear developers, graphic designers, project managers and the like, but I knew that this one was going to be a little different. It was a sextech hackathon, hosted by Bryony Cole – sextech entrepreneur and judge of the Lovehoney Design A Sex Toy Competition.

    Sextech is any technology or tool used in conjunction with any aspect of human sexuality. So, condoms, dating apps, toys, tools to aid with sexual dysfunctions, menstrual cycle tracking apps and even things like Facetime or Skype. The event invited all types of people who were interested in solving the problems we face in our sex lives.

    It was an expensive commitment for me to go, but I knew that I would have serious FOMO if I didn’t attend and something told me that the people I would meet there would change my life. Spoiler, I was right.

    It's probably not a question that's likely to appear on University Challenge anytime soon but most people, when asked, could name a few fetishes.

    Foot fetishes are usually what springs to mind, followed by activities like bondage and S&M.

    But what is counts as a fetish? Well, a fetish is a type of sexual desire where gratification is linked to an object, type of clothing or part of the body.

    best-sex-related-podcasts

    I am so grateful for podcasts. They're the perfect medium for me to keep learning throughout my busy day without having to stop everything to read or watch something.

    I have too many subscriptions to keep track of and I'm obsessed. As it's me, the majority of what I want to know about is sex stuff, so what I listen to is almost entirely sex-related.

    Here are eight of my current recommendations!

    happy rabbit study 2018

    A recent medical study in the US has changed the direction of intimate pleasure for women, demonstrating that super-strength orgasms may be available in real life, not just the movies.

    Conducted by neuroscientist Dr Nicole Prause, founder of sexual biotechnology firm Liberos, the purpose of the scientific study was to test the effectiveness of the updated happy rabbit® versus manual stimulation.

    19 women to date, with an average age of 31 and a wide range of racial and age diversity, have been tested. Each of the women visited the lab twice under strict lab conditions  once to use a happy rabbit® vibrator, and the other to masturbate using their hands.

    And what did Dr Prause discover?...
