1. What is Orgasm Play?

    Orgasm play (or control) is the act of taking charge over how, when and if an orgasm will take place during intimate play.

    Orgasm control can be explored during solo masturbation (sometimes referred to as "edging", "peaking" or "surfing"), but is often used as a tool for submission during BDSM and power play scenarios.

    During couples' play, orgasm control is usually broken down into two main types: 'Orgasm Denial' and 'Forced Orgasms'.

    Not sure what that means?

    Read on to find out their true definitions, why you might like to try it, and how.

    6 Sexiest Movies to Set The Mood This Valentine's Day

    Cynics say that Valentine's Day is a get-rich-quick scheme contrived by florists and chocolatiers.

    Pay them no attention.

    No matter your relationship status, Valentine's Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate love and sex.

    For those who are planning a romantic night-in this 14th of February, I have compiled a list of 9 of the sexiest Netflix movies to help you set the mood.

    I've ranked these films from mildest to explicit – so whether you're spending the evening with your long-term lover, your sex buddy, your crush (or even if you're flying solo) rest assured – I've got the film for you.

    The Most Beautiful Non-Realistic Sex Toys

    If 'beautiful' is not the first word that springs to mind when you think about sex toys, I can't say I'm surprised. 'Sexy' – I understand. 'Orgasmic' – makes total sense. 'Better give that a wipe over when I'm done' – yes, you most certainly should.

    However, sex toys can be objects of beauty. Some toys are made from glass or steel, sporting clean lines and elegant silhouettes. These exude a classic kind of beauty. Others are brightly coloured and almost abstract, instantly capturing your attention not unlike some forms of modern art.

    (Note: If you think I'm making a rather tenuous link, just Google 'Princess X' by Constantin Brancusi, one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th century. There is no way you can tell me he wouldn't have been a loyal fan of Lovehoney!)

    It's true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So, I've gathered six of the most beautiful, non-realistic sex toys here for you to behold (but, of course, the human form is beautiful too!).

    dirty-talk

    What's sexier than knowing what you want in bed? Openly and enthusiastically asking for it, of course!

    Wanting to be more vocal is one thing, but stage fright, insecurities and a fear of feeling silly can easily get in the way – not to mention not knowing what your partner's reaction will be.

    There's every reason to try talking dirty though – especially as the sexy phrases you moan, murmur and scream have been scientifically proven to trigger a reaction in the brain that make your partner feel even more aroused.

    And while we're not suggesting you turn the air bright blue from the get-go, dirty talk is definitely something you can master with a little bit of practice.

    Welcome to the dirty talk masterclass...
