    Everything You Need To Know About Threesomes

    Many couples talk about the idea of a threesome and whether they would enjoy it or not, but sitting down and saying, "Shall we do this?" is a different game altogether.

    My boyfriend and I ended up having this conversation after our first threesome (which we didn't plan for, but it just sort of…happened).

    A few months later we met our girlfriend and since then we've had a lot of fun experimenting with new positions and techniques, as well as the inevitable, "Whose turn is it to make coffee?" in the morning.

    So, with this in mind, here's the beginner's guide to everything you need to know about threesomes, from how bring them up with your partner, to what you must do to ensure you have the best time possible, to which positions and techniques work best.

    Fifty Shades Darker Sex Toy Collection

    “‘Do you want a regular vanilla relationship with no kinky fuckery at all?’” - Christian Grey

    I’ve always considered myself to be adventurous when it comes to sex; I enjoy a bit of light bondage, the occasional spanking, but to be honest I’m always the one in control. One may even go as far as to say a control freak.

    My New Year’s Resolution for 2017 was to try new things, and to be less stubborn, so when the opportunity presented itself to do just that, and to spend a week sampling the Fifty Shades Darker collection from Lovehoney I couldn’t hold myself back.

    When I discussed this with my partners, Tom and Sara, they couldn’t help but laugh a little at the thought of me being submissive, but were ultimately eager to experiment with me.

    So, how was it playing like Christian and Anastasia for five days? Read on to find out…

    A new collection of Fifty Shades Darker pleasure products has been launched for Valentine's Day.

    E L James has worked with 'the sexual happiness people' at Lovehoney to develop the sex toys and bondage products she describes in her best-selling books.

    The ranges are the only collections to be approved by the world's best-selling author.

    She comments: "These collections embody what I imagined when I was writing Fifty Shades Darker. It's amazing to see that five years after the first book was published, people continue to experiment and explore.

    We’ve all had those moments where we aren’t physically with someone, but we can’t help but think of all the sexy things we’d love to be doing with them right then.

    Whether it’s a partner of years or just someone really hot who you’re casually talking to, the urge to get them as turned on as you are is an exciting thought.

    Sexting is an awesome tool for setting the mood and making your intentions known. However, not all of us are pros at this particular activity, and expressing yourself sexually via the written word can often come less naturally than expression in physical form.

    It has been a learning curve from when I first started engaging in sexting a few years ago, but as someone who feels they have come a long way and become more comfortable over time, here are my top ten do’s and don’ts to make sexting an exciting, enjoyable and non-intimidating experience every time.

    Top Sexercise Tips

    There is no way of knowing what the year ahead will bring; but one thing is for certain, and that is the tidal wave of selfies taken at the gym that flood social media throughout January, accompanied by the inevitable #newyearnewme hashtag.

    Getting in shape is one of the most common New Year's resolutions. But why give your hard-earned money to a gym? Let's face it, you'll probably only go once or twice before flopping back onto the couch to watch Netflix for the other 363 days of the year.

    Instead, why not aim to do more sex-ercise in 2017?

    Sex-ercise is when you make a conscious effort to incorporate more exercise into your sex life. It makes a lot of sense. Sex is hands down the the most enjoyable activity in the world, so why not squeeze in a cheeky workout?

    With this in mind, I've taken some common positions and highlighted the muscle groups they work. Just think of it as naked circuit training.

    Waiting for Sex Does the Three Date Rule Still Apply

    We all know there are supposedly those unspoken 'rules' regarding sex and dating, and while some of us subscribe to them, others regard them as a complete fallacy.

    Even for those that have no interest in restricting themselves and their love lives to those imaginary rules, the topic of "when should I?" pertaining to sex can often make one pause for thought.

    But in a world much changed from what it was a mere few decades ago, we have to wonder if these beliefs are still relevant.

    Casual and non-traditional relationships are much more widely accepted, and being open about individual sexual needs without necessarily needing a relationship has become as easy as clicking a button on your phone.

    So, is it still 'best practice' to wait 3 dates before sleeping with someone you want a relationship with?

    The best way I can express my views on the matter is to take you through some of my past experiences and their varying results…

    Regardless of what anyone tells you, taking nude photos is an art form.

    Though many of us may just believe it's a matter of 'point-and-snap', there's actually a lot more to it if you want your photo to do your body justice.

    Just as with any good photo, you have to think about framing, lighting, position, and many other things if you really want to get that jaw-dropping effect.

    While most of us are aware that a lot of work goes into a fantastic sensual photo, it should nonetheless look like it's effortless.

    So here are a few tips to help ensure your pictures are of top quality, every single time.

    When we talk about sex, the first thing that comes to mind for most people is 'penis-in-vagina' or some variation of this.

    Yet, while that's not incorrect, there are so many other ways to give and receive pleasure than through penetration or being penetrated, which are just as legitimate (and pleasurable) as any other type of sex.

    Plenty of folks often opt to have different types of sex instead of standard 'penis in vagina'.

    So here are my top picks for non-penetrative types of sex – or, "Outercourse". Some of these suggestions could end up being a new favourite and a bedroom staple, or you might never try them again – but hey, at least you gave it a go!
