1. A lot of people tell us that one of the reasons they've never used a sex toy is because they think they're expensive.

    Well, we are very happy to tell those people that they are wrong!

    While some sex toys are more expensive than others, there are a huge variety that'll cost you less than a glass of wine, or a take-away pizza.

    So whether you're saving for a holiday, or just want to keep costs low while you try something new, you can jazz up your sex life without breaking the (wank) bank.

    I recently found an old copy of Gary Chapman’s ‘The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate’.

    The pages are yellowed and some of the content is outdated, but overall it’s not a very sexy book.

    But just like any sex/relationship books I own, I like to see how things have changed over time (this book is almost 20 years old) and if any concepts can be applied to modern relationships.

    This book screams companionship and marriage issues, but I’m on a mission to steam it up and see how it can help in the bedroom.

    Gaz, I think you’re onto something – let’s do this together.

    What Does It Mean To Be Asexual

    We’ve all had those days where you just hate the idea of having sex.

    Sometimes it’s because of stress, or your period, or just because you ate an ungodly amount of spaghetti and feel ready to explode.

    You may have even heard people say things like ‘I’m so asexual right now’ or ‘I think I’ve turned asexual since my breakup’.

    But real asexuality isn’t just a temporary reluctance to have sex.

    It’s actually more like a sexual orientation, so instead of perhaps being attracted to two genders (bisexual), you’re attracted to no genders.

    Asexuality is one of the most misunderstood sexual orientations, so let’s clear up some of the myths and misconceptions about it once and for all.

    It's game time! Huzzah!

    It's been far too long since we played a game on camera, so we thought we'd give ourselves the ultimate challenge:

    Dress a mannequin, in a mystery outfit, in under 60 seconds.

    Oh, and surprise surprise... We're blindfolded!

    Sound easy? That's what we thought...

    When you hear the term ‘erogenous zone’, what springs to mind? If your thoughts head directly below-the-waist, you’re not alone.

    We are all guilty of being a little too crotch-centric at times; focusing solely on the vagina or penis and forgetting to use other erogenous zones in the bedroom.

    An erogenous zone can be any area of the body that, when stimulated, gets you in the mood. That’s a pretty broad definition, which is good news!

    For those of you that want to spice things up, here are ten erogenous zones you may never have previously considered.


    Alix Fox for The Lovehoney Head Board

    In this Head Board article, we’re getting to the – ahem – bottom of the question, “If I’m a man who likes anal play, does that mean I’m gay?”.

    Here to offer answers is award-winning journalist and sex educator Alix Fox, co-host of BBC Radio 1’s real-life comedy sex stories show, Unexpected Fluids, and resident X-rated agony aunt on The Modern Mann podcast.

    Alix is also a proud Ambassador for young people’s sexual health charity Brook, so when it comes to bums, you know she’s not talking out of her arse.

    OK, my Puzzled-About-Posterior-Play Posse, let’s have a conversation about anal stimulation! I’m going to break this question down into easily digestible parts. Starting with…

    Sex Lubes: they're awesome.

    Adding lube to sexy playtime is one of the simplest ways to bring something new to the bedroom. They improve glide, enhance sensation and can even enable play that's otherwise not possible, such as anal sex or sex in the shower.

    But, with so many lubes to choose from, it can be tricky knowing which lube is safe to use alongside which products. For example, did you know that you should never use silicone lube with a silicone sex toy?

    Or that water-based lubes won't work in the shower?

    In this week's video, Jess and Sammi give you the lowdown on lubes so you know the key differences between them, and can make any play super-slippery with the correct lubricant.

    Anal play is great. There. We said it.

    No matter your gender or sexual orientation, everyone has a butthole and that butthole is packed with sensitive nerve endings that can feel amazing when stimulated.

    Anal play should never (EVER) hurt and, with proper preparation and slow progression, can be a completely new (and potentially more intense) way to climax.
