Just as with the hair on our heads, eyebrows, and faces, pubic hairstyles come in a wide array of shapes and colours. Some people like it balder than a US Congressman; some people like it neatly trimmed; and others prefer to follow the spirit of Woodstock, and let it run wild and free.
So, should you shave your short 'n' curlies? The truth is, there's no right or wrong answer to that question. Those who advocate for the full Hollywood (that is, to say, entirely bare) say that it feels cleaner, is less hassle for their sexual partners, and increases sensation.
The Full-Bush-Administration, however, would counter that pubic hair is there to protect your sensitive areas, makes you less prone to catching STIs, and also helps to retain libido-boosting pheromones that make you even more sexually appealing.
Many also find their partner's personal preference often influences their own choice, but when it comes down to it, the decision (and the razor) are entirely in your hands. If you are, however, in the staggering 92% of women and 83% of men who primp their pubes in some way, then just read on for our finest styling tips.
For some of us, the words, ‘role play’ send a shiver of excitement down our spines; for others, it’s more a chill of fear that reminds us of uncomfortable team-building exercises.
But using role play in the bedroom is about much more than indulging your long-held and unspoken fantasy about that traffic warden who once fined you.
By adopting a different persona, many people find it easier to open up and explore situations and practises that they would never normally broach, allowing them to experience greater fulfillment and also bringing them closer to their partner.
But how do you get into it without feeling a little, well, ridiculous? Well, just read on below to see not only how you can choose the scenario (and outfit) that's right for you, but how to fully enjoy your foray into the world of character play.

If you don't know where to start, we've come up with our top tips to help you choose the perfect briefs or boxers to keep him feeling sexy, happy, and confident in (and out) of the bedroom.

Lots of couples want to explore new ways to excite their partner and stimulate each other's senses to their full potential during foreplay, but when you've already exhausted the tools Mother Nature gave you, it can be difficult to know what to move on to next.
Experimenting with sensory play such as erotic massage, temperature play and light spanking is a great way to instantly turn up the heat on your pleasure. If you're brand new to this kind of play, you might like to start with something a little less intimidating, like a feather tickler.
Unlike other types of sensory exploration which can require a certain level of skill or confidence, feather ticklers are the perfect balance between invitingly soft and excitingly new, whilst still being wonderfully easy to use.
