Summer is here, the sunshine is out and you're hornier than ever!
You want to go outside and enjoy the nice weather before the autumn creeps back in, yet you want to spend endless time in bed having mind-blowing sex – a conflicting conundrum indeed.
What if I told you there was a way you could do both (at least some of the time)?
While, of course you do not want to be slapped with a public indecency charge, there are certain situations and ways you can achieve a bit of naughty fun away from the inside of your house that are secret and subtle enough that no one need ever know.
So if the thought of al fresco friskiness gets you hot under the collar this summer, check out these top tips for sex in the great outdoors.
For many of us, D.I.Y. is a term more often associated with tedious weekend trips to B&Q than something a lot more pleasurable.
However, 'doing it yourself' shouldn't just be reserved for trying to whip up a shelf with the ease of Nick Knowles on DIY SOS.
During the middle of any stressful period, I can't be the only who could do with a bit of help trying to relax after those long days, and unfortunately, giving up some of our precious time to have some fun with somebody else just isn't a priority.
However, that doesn't mean that we can't find some of that sexual happiness by ourselves.
If, like me, you'd benefit from a low-maintenance helping hand to put a smile on your face, have a look at four fabulous toys that are fit for the job.
We've come a long way in our perceptions of sex and sexuality recently, but we still have a long way to go.
I doubt anyone reading this would feel anything but appalled at the idea of someone being made to feel ashamed of their sexual orientation, gender identity or relationship status, or unable to express their sexual desires.
Yet, it's still so common in our society for people whose preferences when it comes to sex itself lie beyond the vanilla to feel abnormal or confused.
This act of belittling or mocking someone's particular preferences in the bedroom is known as 'kinkshaming', and it can be pretty harmful.
So I've taken a look at the key reasons why this is a problem, and why it needs to change.
Not only do they prevent unplanned pregnancies and STIs, they let us experience new sensations, they help sex last longer, and - if we are being really honest – they make the post-coital clean up oh so simple.
Condoms only want what’s best for us, yet we make them the butt of our jokes, we use them for bizarre internet challenges, and we don’t appreciate them as much as we should.
It’s a modern-day injustice, so I’m here to play devil’s advocate for the humble condom. Brace yourself – I’m about to drop some serious truth bombs.
Sex is wonderful, and there are probably few of us reading this who would disagree.
But, at times, it can be frustrating, embarrassing, and downright awkward. The most common woe I hear from friends is that they aren't getting what they want in the bedroom. Sure, sometimes what they want is a Champagne breakfast in bed, but we can't all have that everyday.
I'm talking about getting what you want between the sheets, and for some, the prospect of talking to a partner about this can be a scary thought. But it doesn't have to be.
The root cause for most people is that they aren't confident in communicating their desires, and for some, they aren't even sure what it is that they want.
Never fear! With these top tips you will soon have all of the tools you need to know what you want in bed - and how to ask for it.
Sex in the bath or shower is a curiosity for many, and a 'would highly recommend it' for others. There's just something about getting down and dirty with a partner while getting clean at the same time.
However, if you've ever lived in shared accommodation then you're aware that access to the bathroom, and a clean one at that, can be limited at best. Don't let your living situation be a limit to your sex life, though!
