I might completely regret this decision in 12 months.
I’ve decided to apply for a Masters of Sexology to complete full time for the next 2 years (here’s hoping that I get in).
I’m right off the back of completing a graduate certificate, and I’m already itching to get another qualification. For a long time, there have been many things that have held me back from doing this. The time, debt, effort, stress, studying via distance, not to mention having to travel from the east coast of Australia to the west coast at least twice a year sure enough were among the cons in my ‘pros and cons’ list.
All these things still scare me, but they barely measure up to why I want to become a certified sex geek. Here’s why.
I started writing for Lovehoney in late 2016 – and this remains one of the most entertaining, rewarding jobs I've ever had.
Aside from making my browser history quite difficult to explain on occasions, writing about sex for Lovehoney has taught me a lot about sex toys, relationships and even myself.
Here are 10 major things I've learned whilst writing for Lovehoney.

Remember Sex Ed in school? Was it all videos of toilet cubicles and/or kids jumping into swimming pools? If so, your experience was similar to the vast majority; solely based on the ins-and-outs of 'baby-making', involving some extremely clinical descriptions of heterosexual sex.
So, why hasn't Sex Ed been dragged by the balls kicking and screaming into the 21st -century? There's an overwhelming need for an all-inclusive curriculum offering age-appropriate, relevant relationship and queer-inclusive advice and information.

Flavoured lubes are a great way to bring some delicious fun into your sex life.
They can be used just like any other lube, with the added bonus of a tasty flavour to lick off any body part or toy. I've always been a bit hesitant when it comes to flavoured lubes – I tried one a long time ago and it was so sickly sweet that it put me off them entirely.
But, I've been thinking about finding one that suits me, that makes me and my partner enjoy giving oral even more. So, I bit the bullet and completed The Great Lube Taste Test to find my flavour, and hopefully help some of you.
All of these lubes are water-based and vegan, so they're perfect for practically anyone!
