What is Orgasm Play?
Orgasm play (or control) is the act of taking charge over how, when and if an orgasm will take place during intimate play.
Orgasm control can be explored during solo masturbation (sometimes referred to as "edging", "peaking" or "surfing"), but is often used as a tool for submission during BDSM and power play scenarios.
During couples' play, orgasm control is usually broken down into two main types: 'Orgasm Denial' and 'Forced Orgasms'.

What's sexier than knowing what you want in bed? Openly and enthusiastically asking for it, of course!
Wanting to be more vocal is one thing, but stage fright, insecurities and a fear of feeling silly can easily get in the way – not to mention not knowing what your partner's reaction will be.
There's every reason to try talking dirty though – especially as the sexy phrases you moan, murmur and scream have been scientifically proven to trigger a reaction in the brain that make your partner feel even more aroused.
And while we're not suggesting you turn the air bright blue from the get-go, dirty talk is definitely something you can master with a little bit of practice.

Dom and sub. Secretary and boss. Disobedient student and teacher. What do these sexy role play situations all have in common?
That’s right: an imbalance of power.
In the BDSM community, any situation where one partner takes on a more dominant role than another is known as ‘power play’ - and it’s enormously popular, even in non-BDSM relationships.
Many people have hypothesised about the reasons why transferral of power in the bedroom can be such a big turn-on, but whatever the psychological reason behind it, power play remains one of the sexiest role play characteristics.
But how can you do it, and ensure that everyone remains safe and comfortable, and fully enjoys themselves?
The good news is, there are ways to correctly incorporate power play into the bedroom, so that all parties can feel safe 'n' happy while getting down 'n' dirty.
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.

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.
