When ‘vanilla’ is mentioned in the sexual arena it's usually in reference to a somewhat less than exciting sex life e.g. no frills (toys), one position, penetrative sex. But why does 'conventional' sex get such a bad wrap – is it always necessary to be more kinky and daring?

The intimacy that sex brings is often the most important factor for many couples, so can't you just do both? You don’t have to bring out the ‘big guns’ of whips, chains and ball gags every time, but maybe adding some sprinkles to that scoop of vanilla from time-to-time could be a fun thing.

This week, Sammi and Nick are joined by stand-up comedian, Jack Barry, as they share their thoughts on ‘the pros and cons of ‘vanilla sex’'.

And of course we cover our usual segments "You can never know enough about sex" and "Question of the week" where we share what we've learned about sex this week, and answer your sex questions.
