It’s a comedic trope that we’ve all seen before – the fake orgasm.
Some argue that Meg Ryan’s infamous diner scene in “When Harry Met Sally” takes the cake, but my personal favourite has to be when Elaine comes clean about her orgasms in “Seinfeld”.
The fake orgasm is a simple gag that gets an easy laugh from a television audience. The reality is that the motivating factors for faking an orgasm are far more complex.
So what counts as a fake orgasm? Why do people do it? And how, once you've started, do you stop doing it?
Well, the answers may not be what you would expect...
You could be forgiven for initially thinking that The Great British Bake Off is a classy show.
It’s largely responsible for the revived national interest in the art of baking. It’s won multiple BAFTA and National Television Awards. Heck, every episode takes place in that giant marquee in Welford Park! Things don’t get much more genteel than that.
But anyone who knows their Signature Challenge from their Showstopper will know that The Great British Bake Off is notorious for its saucy innuendos. Tonight marks the finale of the eighth series, and even a change of hosts has not prompted the Bake-Off team to pick their minds up out of the gutter *collective sigh of relief from the fans*.
Mouth-watering desserts and smutty remarks – never has there been a more perfect combination for compelling television!
It’s time to relive the top-shelf sexual banter that only the greatest baking-themed show on Earth can deliver – here are our all time favourite Great British Bake-Off innuendos...
If you're reading this, you're undoubtedly already at least familiar with the basics of sex toys.
Chances are that you already have one or two firm favourites nestled away, whether hidden in a sock drawer or proudly out on display (seriously, some of those glass dildos are gorgeous).
Whatever your situation, it's pretty easy to slip into the habit of having your chosen couple of sex toys and not really ever venturing out from there.
After all, if it works, why change it? Well, that's what we're here to tell you.
Here are the top 4 reasons you should try a new sex toy!
The fourth season of sitcom 'Broad City' premieres in the UK at 11pm tonight. As far as I am concerned, the only appropriate response to this incredible news is a hearty “YAS KWEEN!”.
Abbi and Ilana have been gracing our screens for three years, with their struggle as two twenty-somethings trying to make it in New York consistently leading to non-stop hilarity.
There’s Abbi Abrams, Fine Arts graduate turned personal trainer, and then there is Ilana Wexler – a hedonistic, sex-positive 20 something who is Abbi’s best friend.
After watching every episode religiously, I believe that Abbi and Ilana are two of the most relatable characters on modern television - and the best part is, now you can buy sex toys inspired by the series here at Lovehoney.
Here are 20 times that Abbi and Ilana from ‘Broad City’ were all of us.
Don’t get me wrong: like most people, I love nothing more than lying on the sofa and watching Netflix in my comfy pyjamas.
However, when Lovehoney gave me the opportunity to try wearing sexy underwear every day for a week, it was an offer I just couldn’t resist.
I eagerly waited for the package to be delivered and was beyond excited to see the new underwear that had been chosen for me.
Unwrapping the usual discreet packaging and placing out the different pieces, I suddenly felt a little nervous; I’ve always picked my own underwear and some of the outfits chosen weren’t in my usual comfort zone.
Carry on reading to see how I got on…
Moving out of home is a huge step. You leave creature comforts behind and take on many new responsibilities.
You learn that electricity is not free, water is not free, Netflix is not free. Essentially, once you move out, life is about discovering that more and more things are not free.
But along with these adult responsibilities, there are several massive perks. One such perk is that you can now buy any type of sex toy you desire.
This is because no one in your shared house will go in your room while you are out, pick up your dirty clothes, hoover under your bed and come face to face with a massive dildo.
I've put together a list of the best sex toys to try now that you have flown the nest. My criteria for selecting these was: if a family member found this, could you talk your way out of it?
If the answer was "not a chance", it went on my list.
Fresher's Week is coming.
It's a time to meet people and celebrate the next chapter in your life, but it's also a great opportunity to hook up with like-minded folk, or maybe some not-so-like-minded folk (who can help to broaden your horizons).
If you're planning on getting up close and personal with some of your fellow Freshers, but don't know what to expect, rest assured that our Adventure Time friends in the Land of Ooo can tell you just what to expect...
So your results have come out, and yes, you’ve done it, you’ve made it into university!
Obviously you can proud be of your academic achievements and are going to be looking forward to your course, but let’s be honest… your thoughts must have turned towards the (hopefully!) imminent fun that comes along with going to university.
Some of the craziest fun you’ll experience all year is during Freshers’ Week: meeting new people, nightlife events galore and probably lots of drunken bonding. With this atmosphere of reckless abandon, the hormones can easily thrive.
Whether you are actively planning to get with someone, are open to the idea, are experienced, a virgin - basically whatever circumstances you are in - there is definitely the possibility that a sexual opportunity could arise.
As a newly-finished first year who indeed did have sex in Freshers’ week (and many of the weeks after), I am here to impart some wisdom with some tips and advice about how to approach sex in Freshers’ Week…
Nothing feels quite like knowing you look stunning in a set of lingerie, and with the variety available there really is a style to make any body type feel amazing.
From bodies, to corsets, to nipple pasties, to G-strings, there's a whole world of styles out there, each designed to create a different bedroom look.
It’s easy to be intimidated, however, by the choices available and not know where to start, and sometimes you just want an easy go-to that you know you’ll rock with little risk of the look not working.
But we think there are certain styles that can make every single body shape and size feel fantastic, so here are the top 4 lingerie styles that suit everyone.

If you’ve not listened to ‘My Dad Wrote A Porno’ yet, its high time you did. With over 70 million downloads worldwide, the podcast is a perfect example of what can happen if your parents learn how to self-publish.
The show is narrated by friends Alice, Jamie and the poor, unfortunate James – whose father, Rocky, took it upon himself to begin writing erotic literature.
The fruit of Rocky’s labour is the ‘Belinda Blinked’ series, which James and friends read aloud chapter-by-chapter.
It is true what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men – the ‘Belinda Blinked’ series is about as far from erotic as you could possibly get. Instead, it’s become one of the most successful comedy podcasts of all time.
The eponymous character, Belinda Blumenthal, is a business savvy, modern woman who isn’t afraid to ask for what she wants.
Although fictional, she has become one of my most revered role models, so I want to share with you the life lessons I have learnt from her wet-n-wild adventures.
