One of the most common questions we hear at Lovehoney is "what should I try next?"
Often couples like the idea of progressing play, especially if they like their sex to be a little on the kinky side.
Now, clearly, there never needs to be a "next" if you don't want there to be.
Sex isn't a graded system or a "competition of cool", and you won't "flunk" sex class if you don't keep trying lots of new stuff.
However, life does tend to be a lot more fun and satisfying when you're up for stepping outside of your comfort zone now and again - and never is that more true than when talking about sex.
(What's that saying about "variety" and "spice" again?)
So if you're up for trying something new in the bedroom and are looking for a few suggestions for what to try next, then this blog is for you.

But with the nights as humid as they have been lately, it's not always that easy to get in the mood come bedtime.

For most of us, regardless of gender, trying to have more than one orgasm is about as easy as finding the motivation to start work for tomorrow’s deadline. Much like academic motivation, it’s something we all dream about but doubt we can ever experience.
I used to think that multiple orgasms (especially for women) were a bit of a myth. And to be honest, I thought it was just something they showed in porn films to make the action last longer.
However, I am (very) pleased to say that I was wrong: they are not a myth! Regardless of your gender, there are a variety of different techniques, toys and positions you can try to achieve that ‘ooh’ feeling more than once.
Tried and tested by myself, keep reading for my top tips on having that big finish again and again.
