From moans and groans to creaky bedsprings, sex brings with it an entire orchestra of weird and wonderful noises.
But when you're sharing that house with others, be it members of the family or housemates who could hear a pin drop, hopping on the good foot and doing the bad thing can seem... trickier.
A house full of people isn't the easiest place to get it on, but before you put a ban on bonking, or throw your favourite vibrator to the back of a drawer, here are some handy tips to help you get your rocks off in incognito mode.
Ever since Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson were papped lugging a sex bench into their West Hollywood home, sales of sex furniture have soared.
Whether the couple are furnishing their very own dungeon or dipping their toe into BDSM play is up for debate, but it looks like they're having fun, which we're all for.
So why are sex swings, slings and sex furniture so great?
Well, for starters, they make more complicated sex positions more achievable, allowing you to experiment more, and increase your chances of climax.
Then there's the added bonus of restraint. Some sex furniture includes cuffs, straps and O-rings, so you can attach other bondage accessories and treat your partner to a little touch and tease.
Here are some of our favourite sex furniture and position enhancers.
Male sex toys have come a very long way since the Ancient Greeks used stale bread and a glug of olive oil to get off (you can't blame them for being resourceful).
These days you can step away from the salad dressing, as there are loads of different male sex toys to try.
More and more men are upgrading their solo sessions with textured strokers, twerking butts and sleek prostate massagers.
And while we're over the moon that they're taking their pleasure into their own hands (ahem), we also think male sex toys make great gifts.
So next time you want to treat the man in your life, why not go for a sex toy (obviously don't hand them a gift-wrapped Fleshlight in front of the in-laws).
Here are six reasons to buy a sex toy for a man.
Summer is offically upon us, and for many of us that means only one thing: festival season!

We've got a fancy dress box bursting with festival-ready outfit ideas, from rainbow stripes to brighten up the muddiest field, to the shiniest, sparkliest accessories.
Sex toys have come a very long way since battery-powered bunnies and bullet vibes buzzed onto the scene.
Now you can pleasure your partner in different time zones, and even sync your solo fun to a sexy playlist.
Here are our 5 of our favourite tech-tastic toys, for next-level arousal and game-changing orgasms.
Curious about butt plugs? Want to know what they feel like and why people use them? You've come to the right place.
Your butthole is packed with sensitive nerve endings that can feel incredible when stimulated. But how do you get to them when they're tucked away in your butt? Of course, a finger or a willing partner's penis can help you out, but there is another, super-pleasurable option if you're keen for a little bumfunnery.
Enter the trusty butt plug: an intrepid little toy that's shaped to fit your body and more than happy to help you explore the pleasures that lie beyond your backdoor.
Butt plugs come in different shapes, sizes and materials, so which one's best for you will depend on your experience, anatomy and what kind of sensations you're after.
With the right prep and progression, a butt plug can offer a new, and potentially more intense, way to orgasm.
