1. Lovehoney Student Sex Advice

    There are so many things to consider when you’re preparing to go to university.

    Between packing everything from pens to pizza cutters, it's easy to forget we're not soldiers heading to battle as we move away from home for the first time.

    We've all heard that students are notorious for two things: drinking and sex. While this is a stereotype, and certainly not applicable to every student, sex is an important part of many students’ lives and a recurring topic of our conversations.

    Therefore, together with a group of my fellow students, I've picked out the top 6 things we wished we had known about sex before starting university.

    Festival season: the only time people actually pay to sleep outside, queue for hours, not shower and go to the loo in what can only be described as a plastic coffin of doom.

    Despite these rather major downfalls, there is something about these muddy parties (not a euphemism) and wearing gumboots that really gets us pumped.

    Whether it's the chance to see your favourite band, escape the real world or have a spiritual awakening next to the Tame Impala listening to bongo drums at sunrise (don't judge us).

    This month, tell us all about your sexy festival experiences and you could win $250 worth of Lovehoney goodies.

    Kickstart Your Kink With These 4 Easy Tips

    Whether you’re a seasoned veteran of the world of kink or wouldn’t know a handcuff from a handjob, everyone has at some point been tempted to expand their sexual horizons.

    As with trying just about anything new, though, there are a great number of factors that can act as obstacles to a lot of folks.

    Whether it’s price, nerves or simply the overabundance of options that’s been stopping you, we’re here to point you in the right direction - whatever aspect of a kinkier sex life appeals to you.

    We've picked out four fun and fulfilling ways for you to spice up your sexual routine, and help you and your partner experience even greater thrills.

    Being in a long distance relationship is no picnic, and I speak from experience.

    I lived twenty-four hours away from my boyfriend for a year, so we hardly ever got to have picnics, let alone have mind-blowing sex with each other.

    I have to say, one of the great things about long-distance relationships is that you both get really good at communication; however, long distances couples do tend to get sick of mac-n-cheese masturbation pretty quickly.

    (For those of you who haven't heard the term before, The Dicktionary defines mac-n-cheese masturbation as, "Masturbation that is standard, unsurprising, and requires the minimum amount of effort. Just like a bowl of macaroni and cheese".)

    So, here are my sex game suggestions for long distance couples. Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favour!

    Bondage is fantastic fun, spectacularly sexy, and often the perfect play to bring any couple closer in quite a number of literal and metaphorical ways.

    But when it comes to sharing your love of restraint and sensory deprivation with a new partner, it's not always easy to know how to bring it up.

    First impressions of bondage, however, as well as media-reinforced misconceptions, can be far less favourable.

    Sharing this kink with a new partner can be highly rewarding, but must be done with due care and sensitivity.

    With this in mind, I've created these simple and safe tips to help you introduce your partner to first-time bondage without fear.

    So, you're off to university and there are 10,000 things you have to remember to bring with you.

    Though you've probably thought about plates, cups, towels, and most of the boring stuff, with all the stress about where you'll be living and how you'll find your course, other details can be overlooked.

    And guess what? Your prospective sex life may perhaps be one of those details.

    I myself will be starting university in my first year in October and whilst I am of course sorting out accommodation and education-related items, my thoughts have indeed turned to what activities I will be up to when not studying. I have a high sex drive, so intend to engage in as much pleasure as I can.

    As such, I have thought ahead so you don't have to! Here are what I believe to be essentials (plus a few optionals) to ensure you can play hard as well as work hard this academic year.

    For many people, there are few things more mortifying than the idea of someone hearing them masturbate.

    While there's no reason to be ashamed of masturbation at all, the social stigma, fear of a certain reputation and many other reasons mean that most people would rather keep their private pleasure just that: private.

    University is a time of juxtapositions. A wealth of nightlife and no money to explore it, a world of academic study and no time to embrace it and, for many, a new horizon of sexual possibilities and far too little privacy to comfortably enjoy them.

    Statistically, university is one of the most common times for a woman to start experimenting with masturbation and sex toys, but it is also frustratingly often one where privacy is at an all time low due to the paper thin walls and eternal uncertainty about who's in the house.

    That’s where this handy guide comes in, to help you maximise your potential you-time whilst minimising the need to worry about nosy flatmates asking awkward questions.
