Sex with no strings attached can leave you feeling liberated, confident and deeply satisfied. However, it does also have the potential to go… a little less than well.
Personally, I like to think of a one-night stand as a film sequel. It can be 200 minutes of intense, life-changing passion, much like The Godfather Part II.
It's also possible that you'll want to erase the entire evening from your memory, which is what I wanted to do after watching Grease 2.
So, in order to make sure that your one-night stand doesn't turn into a Mean Girls 2-style one-night flop, I've picked out 4 important things that you need to remember.
Remember, to have a successful one night stand: be S.E.X.Y.
There are so many things to consider when you’re preparing to go to university.
From packing pens to pizza cutters, we all want to feel as prepared as a soldier heading to battle as we move away from home for the first time.
We've all heard that students are notorious for two things: drinking and sex. While this is a stereotype, and certainly not applicable to every student, sex is an important part of many students’ lives and a recurring topic of our conversations.
Therefore, together with a group of my fellow students, I've picked out the top 6 things we wished we had known about sex before starting university.
Whether you've got a single toy hidden away in your sock drawer or a gigantic collection that's taking over your whole house, everyone has that one favourite toy they always find themselves coming back to.
You know the one. The old reliable that you never can quite replace.
But have you ever wondered - what does your favourite sex toy say about you?
From the classic dildo to the beasty butt plug, we've looked at seven different sex toys, and what we think your preference indicates about your personality.
Whether you’re a seasoned veteran of the world of kink or wouldn’t know a handcuff from a handjob, everyone has at some point been tempted to expand their sexual horizons.
As with trying just about anything new, though, there are a great number of factors that can act as obstacles to a lot of folks.
Whether it’s price, nerves or simply the overabundance of options that’s been stopping you, we’re here to point you in the right direction - whatever aspect of a kinkier sex life appeals to you.
We've picked out four fun and fulfilling ways for you to spice up your sexual routine, and help you and your partner experience even greater thrills.
Being in a long distance relationship is no picnic, and I speak from experience.
I lived twenty-four hours away from my boyfriend for a year, so we hardly ever got to have picnics, let alone have mind-blowing sex with each other.
I have to say, one of the great things about long-distance relationships is that you both get really good at communication; however, long distances couples do tend to get sick of mac-n-cheese masturbation pretty quickly.
(For those of you who haven't heard the term before, The Dicktionary defines mac-n-cheese masturbation as, "Masturbation that is standard, unsurprising, and requires the minimum amount of effort. Just like a bowl of macaroni and cheese".)
So, here are my sex game suggestions for long distance couples. Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favour!
The number of people I've known who either have never heard of an open relationship, or who are extremely sceptical of them and what they entail, is astonishing.
Essentially, an open relationship is one where one or both parties are allowed to be physically (or emotionally, or both) involved with other people outside the relationship.
Being currently in one myself, I understand how after being taught your whole life that monogamy is the only way forward, wanting a relationship set-up a little outside the norm can be daunting and hard to admit to.
Even once you have decided that this is the path you wish to go down, actually getting on and doing it can be hard to navigate at first.
As such, I have come up with a list of Do’s and Don’ts for hopefully helping to make an open relationship work, whether you are already in one yourself, or trying to work out how the heck to even get started…
If your housemates are so chilled that they won't raise their eyebrows if you close yourself for an hour in your bedroom with that sexy guy you just met, well, you're super lucky.
For some of us, things just aren't that easy.
No matter how friendly your housemates are, sometimes living with them just makes it impossible to have sex in your bedroom. Would you truly want to be heard by your friends while you moan and scream of pleasure?
So, sometimes, we are forced to be a little creative: we need to explore other places for intimacy instead of the old plain bedroom and create new scenarios to fulfill our desires.
I'm not saying you must limit yourself to the classic bathroom quickie: it can be exciting, as we all know, but sometimes it may be difficult to 'get to the point' in such a short time.
This is where super-discreet sex toys that you can wear out and about come into play…
Do you often catch yourself thinking: "If I were an unusual sex toy, what would I be?"
If your answer to that is yes (and, if not, why not?), then look no further!
Penetrate the unknown and stimulate your adventurous side with our new quiz.
Using a state-of-the-art, scientific algorithm (also known as a quiz), we have developed a way of finding out which unusual sex toy you are based on your likes and dislikes.
Don't believe us? Give it a try. It will blow your mind.
Make sure you let us know which unusual sex toy you are in the comment section below.
I love trying new things sexually. Love it.
There’s no denying the thrill of a first time in any sexual activity, and not just the quintessential ‘First Time’.
There is nothing wrong with a bit of experimentation, be it a tweak on something you already do, or an extreme step if you are the more adventurous type.
Since I have dabbled in various experiences sexually - some just once, some which have become a favourite thing of mine - I thought I’d share with you the four things I view as being fun, accessible for all experiences.
Uni is the perfect time to experiment and find out even more about what you enjoy in (and out) of the bedroom, so make the most of this period of excitement and freedom!
Hopefully you’ll be brave enough to give one of them a go, no matter your relationship status.
Bondage is fantastic fun, spectacularly sexy, and often the perfect play to bring any couple closer in quite a number of literal and metaphorical ways.
But when it comes to sharing your love of restraint and sensory deprivation with a new partner, it's not always easy to know how to bring it up.
First impressions of bondage, however, as well as media-reinforced misconceptions, can be far less favourable.
Sharing this kink with a new partner can be highly rewarding, but must be done with due care and sensitivity.
With this in mind, I've created these simple and safe tips to help you introduce your partner to first-time bondage without fear.
