From dancing around the house in your pants to loud, uninterrupted sex, there are loads of benefits to living alone or just with your partner.
Then Christmas arrives, and throws a big sparkly spanner in the works. Suddenly there's a relative lurking around every corner, and you're sleeping on the squeakiest mattress ever.
A house crowded with people isn't the easiest place to get it on, but before you put a ban on festive bonking, or spend the holidays separated from your favourite vibrator (gasp), here are some handy tips to help you get your glad tidings.
We all start out as virgins, which is honestly kind of great.
The first times experiencing each potential avenue of sexual pleasure might be clumsy, intimidating and far from how we imagine them going, but they can still be some of the best and most memorable sexual encounters we have.
University life and the culture surrounding it makes for an atmosphere of sex like no other - it's everywhere, and often on many minds.
For some students, though, penetrative sex just isn't what they're after from the uni experience and many make it through the full three years (or more) without once dipping a toe in the pool of student sex.
Whether it's for religious reasons, asexuality, just wanting to wait until you're absolutely certain you've found the right person or anything else - here are our top things you must know for life as a student virgin!
I started collecting sex toys over a year ago and have always wanted to try an internal vibrator. Fortunately, Lovehoney has come to my rescue.

Side note: I have a vulva and I haven't used any of these toys for anal play.

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!
Previously our bloggers have covered How to Masturbate Without Anyone Knowing; given the echo of the bathroom and the splashing that can come with it, it seems that discreet sex in the bathroom is an impossibility.
But where there is a will(y), there is a way, and by the end of this, you'll know just how to have mind-blowing sex in the bathroom.
The holidays are hectic for most of us, and it's easy to let sex and intimacy slip.
Cecile, Jess and Sammi – aka the Lovehoney elves – are here to help, with 7 ways to make the festive period sexier.
How strong is your blowjob game?
Are you still experimenting with what makes your partner feel good or have you perfected your technique over years of practice?
Whether you consider yourself an oral sex aficionado or a humble novice, there’s nothing wrong with brushing up on your techniques every once in a while.
Nobody wants to suck at sucking dick (sorry – couldn’t resist), so here’s your trusty student sexpert’s favourite tips for giving mind-blowing oral sex.
Female ejaculation – or squirting – has been around for centuries. In fact, the Kamasutra (written in 200-400 AD) refers to ‘female semen’ that ‘falls continually’.
Despite hundreds and hundreds of years of documentation of the benefits of female ejaculation, even in the 21st century, we still know relatively little about it.
It’s only in recent years that female ejaculation has become a culturally desirable addition to a lady’s sexual repertoire. And quite rightly we say. After all, who doesn’t want to experience incredible orgasms?
So if the whys and hows of squirting and female ejaculation are leaving you with a thirst that needs to be quenched, let our expert guide help you embark on your very own orgasmic, and potentially very wet, adventure.
