1. 5 Reasons to Give Your Partner an Erotic Massage

    If you and your lover are stuck in a foreplay rut, an erotic massage is the perfect way to rocket yourselves out of it!

    Erotic massage, unlike a massage you'd get from your physiotherapist or beautician, is designed to achieve or enhance sexual arousal.

    One of the best things about erotic massages is that they can be whatever you choose to make them.

    Full-body or focused on one particular fun-zone, romantic or purely sensual, part of sexy role play – or just you two doing your thing.

    Don't think that you have to be a professional masseur to knock their socks off either.

    Here are 5 reasons to give your partner an erotic massage.

    Which is the Best G-Spot Vibrator?

    I started collecting sex toys over a year ago and have always wanted to try an internal vibrator. Fortunately, Lovehoney has come to my rescue.

    This month, I've tested four G-spot vibrators to see which worked the best for me and my body, and now I can tell you which G-spot vibe is the winner.

    Side note: I have a vulva and I haven't used any of these toys for anal play.

    Everything You Need to Know About Consent

    This year, the theme of sexual health awareness week was consent, and what a perfect year for it.

    With hundreds of sexual harassment and assault cases in the news, consent has been a hot topic, and for good reason.

    Consent must be the foundation to every sexual encounter and while it’s straightforward, sometimes different interpretations can make it complicated.

    I’m going to break it down – explain what it is, how it can be influenced, why it’s important, and when and how it can be given, asked for and withdrawn.

    Sometimes when you’re dating, there’s nothing worse than that, “What are we?” stage.

    You find yourself thinking, “Are we dating? Are we seeing each other? Are we official?” and it can be a tough case to crack. Labelling your new relationship is something we all want (or need) to do but it comes as no surprise that a lot of the time, we don’t really know what we should be calling it.

    Not only do we have that ever-so-helpful voice inside our heads telling us to get a wriggle on with it, we’re in the Facebook age now where the seriousness of our relationships is determined by the status we set on our social media profile.

    However, if you’re not really sure what label you should be giving your new relationship in 2018, have a think about the stage you’re at first and take it from there. At first, it might seem clear as mud but once you’ve given it some thought, you’ll have it sussed.

    Here are some helpful hints…

    The body positive movement is about accepting and appreciating all human body types, no matter what they look like.

    What society considers to be beautiful should not cause a person to lose confidence or to feel unworthy of love and respect.

    Society's "beautiful" changes every five minutes anyway, so why bother attempting to keep up with what’s trending? We’ve spent the last three years obsessing over our eyebrows... we’ll probably be shaving them off by 2020.

    We often hear about body positivity in conjunction with the fight against fat-shaming and the pressure women face to look a certain way.

    There is more to the movement than that. Body positivity is against both skinny and fat-shaming, because body-shaming in all its forms can lead to mental health problems and harmful eating disorders.

    But body positivity should be inclusive of all genders, races, and abilities, not just female weight. So how can being body positive improve your sex life?

    12 Things Everyone Has Thought During Sex

    Sex is a wondrous thing; like a magnificent night sky. Full of beauty, infinite possibilities and the... what the heck is that?

    We've all been there. On the road to Pleasure, via Puzzled with a pit stop in Preoccupied.

    Focusing on being relaxed and what is turning you on in the moment is key to satisfying sex.

    By practising being more present in each moment of daily life, you'll find it a lot easier to be in the moment during your lovemaking.

    With everything that's going on in our busy lives, it's understandable though that sometimes our minds take a detour.

    Don't fret about it.

    Read on for a list of things that everyone has thought of during sex.

    What is Foreplay?

    Generally, foreplay is known as ‘sexual activity during the lead up to sex’ or ‘things that get you in the mood’.

    But what is sex and why doesn’t it include the lead up?

    When does foreplay end and sex begin?

    Foreplay can mean lots of different things to different people, so I’ll be covering what falls into the ‘generic foreplay’ category, how creating different categories of sexual acts can be damaging, my own definition of foreplay and when I think it should happen (hint – it’s not always before!).

    Often, when the term 'foreplay' gets thrown around, it's sold as ‘something that comes before "actual" sex’ (i.e. a penis penetrating a vagina – thanks heteronormative school sex-ed). So for a long time, I assumed it to be kissing, cuddling and hands/mouth on genitals.

    I know this experience isn't uncommon, and I know that to a lot of people, that's what foreplay is.

    We're over halfway through October, which can mean only one thing: Halloween is almost here!

    And whether you've been counting down the days since last November 1st, or you're locking the doors and hunkering down to avoid trick-or-treaters, one thing's for sure: the internet is brimming with sexy Halloween costume possibilities.

    We've packed our new Halloween shop full of flirty costumes and spooky-style toys, but how can a night associated with ghouls, ghosts, and wee demon beasties be erotic?

    We're glad you asked.

    Here, we've collected our favourite Halloween-esque role play scenarios to take your night from frightful to delightful (without a drop of fake blood in sight).

    Don’t forget, before any role play, it’s always a good idea to agree on a safe word with your partner so that if things get too intense, you can cease play immediately.
