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.
Even though the nights are getting lighter, for many of us, the prospect of that long-dreamed-of summer holiday still seems like a far-off fantasy.
But a new season needs a new sex toy, especially when the nights are getting shorter and steamier.
I've always been that friend who is recommending toys to everyone in the group chat, but sadly being the one who is the most experienced in finding sexual happiness means people very rarely throw recommendations my way.
I'm sure many of you are in the same boat as me, where you have lots of toys, lubes and lingerie that still hit the spot... but a little upgrade never hurt anyone.
Therefore, I've put together some of our hit-the-spot classics and offered some new upgrades for you try to this season. You know what they say: out with the old and in with the new.
Sex in the bath or shower is a curiosity for many, and a 'would highly recommend it' for others. There's just something about getting down and dirty with a partner while getting clean at the same time.
However, if you've ever lived in shared accommodation then you're aware that access to the bathroom, and a clean one at that, can be limited at best. Don't let your living situation be a limit to your sex life, though!
University is a varied and diverse place, with a whole range of different types of people for you to meet and interact with.
It's wonderful having the opportunity to learn about other people's passions and how someone else approaches life in comparison to yourself.
Every subject has its strengths and particular fortes academically, but who says that can't translate to other areas too, such as your sex life?

On the 26th of March, Daylight Savings will begin and the clocks will go forward an hour. This means mentally adding on an hour to the clock in your car until October, because ain’t nobody got time for actually changing it.
For some people, Daylight Savings can mean less time for sex. If you are regularly forced to choose between fighting your family or friends for the bathroom, or missing the bus, having morning sex may seem impossible.
And the same goes for evenings. You already have housework, reports, and coursework coming out of your butt, you certainly don’t have time to be putting anal beads up there, too. Right?
Sex doesn’t have to come to a screaming halt just because we lose an hour on Sunday. The screaming and the orgasms just have to happen faster, so read on if you want to master The Quickie.
