As a student, I'd be lost without my smartphone. It's an essential piece of equipment for me. How else could I keep up with all my important academic notices like last minute seminar room changes, workshops showing me how to cite correctly, and student union election updates?
Then, in my free time I play games, keep in touch with friends, search for the name of the person in the current TV series I'm watching to find out where I recognise them from, and browse Lovehoney forums.
I've also tweeted a large supermarket chain because a relative and I were arguing about what year the local branch opened in our hometown. Behold, all this power and knowledge at my fingertips.
But wait, I can hear you thinking, if smartphones can do so many awesome things surely there's probably an app for reigniting intimacy? Like autocomplete, I'm already there.
Here are some of my favourites for boosting your sexual inspiration and adventures.
For those of you that dread the coming of February 14th, you can now breathe a sigh of relief that Valentine's Day is over and done for another year.
But did you know that February 15th is the day of another momentous celebration?
That's right. The day after Valentine's Day - Anti-Valentine's Day, Singles Appreciation Day or whatever you know it as - is a day to celebrate perhaps the most beloved villain of the 1980s: Skeletor.
Yep. You read that right. St Skeletor's Day is an actual thing.
But how do you commemorate such an event, the Lovehoney way? Well, we have picked out three top toys to get you off to the right start. Foiling He-Man is up to you, though.
Cynics say that Valentine's Day is a get-rich-quick scheme contrived by florists and chocolatiers.
Pay them no attention.
No matter your relationship status, Valentine's Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate love and sex.
For those who are planning a romantic night-in this 14th of February, I have compiled a list of 9 of the sexiest Netflix movies to help you set the mood.
I've ranked these films from mildest to explicit – so whether you're spending the evening with your long-term lover, your sex buddy, your crush (or even if you're flying solo) rest assured – I've got the film for you.
If 'beautiful' is not the first word that springs to mind when you think about sex toys, I can't say I'm surprised. 'Sexy' – I understand. 'Orgasmic' – makes total sense. 'Better give that a wipe over when I'm done' – yes, you most certainly should.
However, sex toys can be objects of beauty. Some toys are made from glass or steel, sporting clean lines and elegant silhouettes. These exude a classic kind of beauty. Others are brightly coloured and almost abstract, instantly capturing your attention not unlike some forms of modern art.
(Note: If you think I'm making a rather tenuous link, just Google 'Princess X' by Constantin Brancusi, one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th century. There is no way you can tell me he wouldn't have been a loyal fan of Lovehoney!)
It's true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So, I've gathered six of the most beautiful, non-realistic sex toys here for you to behold (but, of course, the human form is beautiful too!).
January is well and truly here. All reminders of Christmas and New Year have gone. Well, except the shortage of money and the occasional "Have you failed your New Year resolution yet?" comment - and let's not forget the back to university/work blues.
If you know what day it is today, then rest assured, you are getting back into the swing of things. Give yourself a pat on the back if you spent more time out of pyjamas than in them. Go you! You're unstoppable...
... But what is this red and pink rash growing over every building you walk into? Oh, it's Valentine's Day promotions!
Despite the emphasis on romance, Valentine's Day is a great time to let the people in your life know how thankful you are for them. Because, let's face it, a support network is the number one student accessory.
Here are some ideas for gifts for your besties. What better way to thank someone for being a friend?
After Christmas comes the inevitable period of 'I spent HOW much?', which most of us are well familiar with - and for those of us with a monthly pay check, the wait between the early December pay day and the one at the end of January seems endless.
This can turn Valentine's Day from the relaxed, carefree expression of love it should be to a looming spectre threatening to drain your bank account dry.
This is where Lovehoney and the Oh! Spot comes in.
We've got a list of the sexiest gifts you can get, all for under £30, so there's something to suit every single budget.
From underwear to dildos, and games to handcuffs, we've picked 15 of our Lovehoney favourites to ensure this is your steamiest Valentine's Day yet.
Forget achey limbs, overcrowded exercise classes and uncomfortable activewear – the most important workout you'll do this year doesn't require a pricey gym membership.
In fact, you don't even need to get out of bed to reap the rewards of this routine...
Whatever your New Year's Resolution, incorporating a few kegel (also called pelvic floor) exercises into your 'New Year, New Me' plan might be the best decision you'll make this year.
(And if you didn't do it instinctively, I challenge you to start squeezing every time you read the word 'kegel' for the rest of the article.)
Dom and sub. Secretary and boss. Disobedient student and teacher. What do these sexy role play situations all have in common?
That’s right: an imbalance of power.
In the BDSM community, any situation where one partner takes on a more dominant role than another is known as ‘power play’ - and it’s enormously popular, even in non-BDSM relationships.
Many people have hypothesised about the reasons why transferral of power in the bedroom can be such a big turn-on, but whatever the psychological reason behind it, power play remains one of the sexiest role play characteristics.
But how can you do it, and ensure that everyone remains safe and comfortable, and fully enjoys themselves?
The good news is, there are ways to correctly incorporate power play into the bedroom, so that all parties can feel safe 'n' happy while getting down 'n' dirty.
If you want to learn more about your sexuality, I suggest looking to the stars!
When it comes to determining what kind of a lover you are, who you are most sexually compatible with, and what sex toys you are most likely to love, your horoscope can be a fun place to start - if you believe in the influence of the cosmos, of course.

They say that you can never really know enough about sex, and that no single person knows it all.
And, to be honest, if you discovered everything you ever needed to know about getting jiggy with it in the first year, what would there be to look forward to?
Like lots of people I know, my sex life didn't really take off until I went to university.
But that just meant 2017 was a year of exciting new discoveries!
From the thrill of car sex to multiple orgasms, I decided to reflect this December on some of the things my £9,000 a year didn't teach me...
