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.
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!).
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...

But with the nights as humid as they have been lately, it's not always that easy to get in the mood come bedtime.
If you're anything like me, the evenings are more an experimentation to see which combination of arms and legs flung outside the duvet keeps you coolest, rather than which combination of entwined limbs is most erotic.

For most of us, regardless of gender, trying to have more than one orgasm is about as easy as finding the motivation to start work for tomorrow’s deadline. Much like academic motivation, it’s something we all dream about but doubt we can ever experience.
I used to think that multiple orgasms (especially for women) were a bit of a myth. And to be honest, I thought it was just something they showed in porn films to make the action last longer.
However, I am (very) pleased to say that I was wrong: they are not a myth! Regardless of your gender, there are a variety of different techniques, toys and positions you can try to achieve that ‘ooh’ feeling more than once.
Tried and tested by myself, keep reading for my top tips on having that big finish again and again.
