We all know that sex is wonderful. It’s the bomb. It’s our jam.
But, even in the most heavenly of sex lives, there are times when things don’t go quite according to plan.
From lost condoms, to unsettling noises, to miscommunications in what you want, there are a ton of situations where things go from, ‘Oh, yes!’ to ‘Oh, no…’ in the blink of an eye.
With this in mind, and with season 7 of HBO’s sex-and-swords spectacular, Game of Thrones, having made its explosive Stateside debut last night, we’re here to tell you all about those moments - with the help of the characters of Westeros, that is.
Danaerys, Tyrion, Jon Snow, and all your favourite loveable scamps (read: bloodthirsty horn dogs) are here to show you that you're not alone in those awkward times. At least, they were at the end of season 6. By the end of the first episode, it's anyone's game, really.
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?
Got your eye on an enticing engineer? Want to have some va va voom with a very tempting French student? Read on below to see what particular skills they can bring to your bedroom, as well as the exam hall…
(Remember, this is all a bit of light-hearted fun – obviously not everyone on the same course is exactly the same person and has exactly the same sex life!)
One of the best things about being a student is moving out and having more freedom than you know what to do with.
Being able to have the time of your life without being worried that your mum will look in the bottom drawer of your bedside table is a weight off so many minds - after all, nobody wants to have to explain about the rabbits that aren't kept in a hutch.
That said, it can be incredibly awkward when you've got a housemate next door who is treating sex more like an audition for The Voice than an intimate encounter, with the rest of you merely sat there waiting to hit the big red button. To start, it's quite funny, but repeated performances can get a little irritating.
So, if you find you're often woken by nocturnal noises that aren't the dodgy old boiler that your landlord refuses to fix, this is the article for you: eight of the best responses to loud-and-proud housemate humping. Best make sure they have a sense of humour first, though…
We all know that small romantic gestures help keep a relationship exciting and fresh. Spontaneous gifts are the number one choice for couples who want to surprise one another. Your favourite box of chocolates, a book by your favourite author, a bouquet of flowers - all these are classic ideas.
Fresh roses and sexy lingerie are also top of the romantic lover’s list so we thought: Why not do something different and combine the two?
And we mean it! Today we’ll show you how you can create a clever little gift for your partner that they won’t be expecting at all: a red rose made from a pair of sexy knickers.
Pretty, lacy lingerie such as our Flirty Boyshorts are perfect for this little DIY project. If red isn’t your thing, you can always choose something else from our range of sexy colours. You can even create an entire bouquet if you’re especially keen.
When The Bloodhound Gang sang these poignant lyrics, they probably weren't singing about the fact that most of us are naturally capable of growing pubic hair.
But I like to think that they were.
Scientifically, sure, most adults have pubes. But historically and culturally, we have subjected these downstairs hairs to a hell of a lot. So I decided to take a look into the hair-raising history of pubes.
If, like me, you thought waxing your bush was a fairly modern phenomenon, you'd be wrong. People have been man-scaping and trimming their lady gardens for thousands of years.
Intrigued? Then just keep reading for a truly hair-razing history lesson.
