    Ultimate Guide to Erogenous Zones

    When someone says “erogenous zones” to you (and we’re hoping in the right context, not while you’re shopping for eggs), which places do you tend to think of?

    Chances are, it’s your bits first, then nipples, or anus, or that one particular spot that your partner found behind your knee once and you’ve been trying to rediscover ever since.

    But the truth is, we’re covered in erogenous zones - sensitive areas of the body that can make us feel aroused, or even bring us to orgasm - and finding out which ones work for you can be a whole lot of fun. Not to mention a great way to spend a rainy Sunday.

    To discover some of our favourites, and find out how to stimulate them for mind-blowing masturbation, sex and foreplay fun, just keep reading.

    What you wear depends entirely on what your plans are for the rest of the day or night – you might not want to be squeezing yourself into a steel-boned corset before going out for a three-course meal!

    Bad Sex in Fiction

    Budge over, Booker Prize, it's time to announce the winner of the biggest honour in the literary calendar - The Guardian's Bad Sex Award.

    Held every year at the start of December, this literal 'booby' prize honours the worst-written sex scene from the fictitious offerings of the past year.

    Over the years, some absolute corkers have made the shortlist and gone on to take home this somewhat dubious accolade. Who can forget Morrisey's "giggling snowball of full-figured copulation", the winning scene from 2015? Or the deeply erotic sight of, "her passport [rising] gradually out of the back pocket of her jeans in time with the rhythmic bobbing of her buttocks" from Tom Connolly's 2016 finalist entry?

    With 2019's winner due to be announced later today, we decided to challenge the Lovehoney writers to attempt their own award-worthy bad sex scene, complete with clumsy metaphors and deeply unsexy settings.

    Who do you think should win the title of Lovehoney's Smutkateer-in-Chief? Let us know in the comments below!

    key to great sex life

    So we reached out to our trusty Lovehoney forum and asked them to share their secrets for the most satisfying sex life around - and true to form, they didn't disappoint!

    Check out their tips below, and if you have any to add, please add them in the comments.
