    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.

    This week, Sammi, Nick are joined by writer and broadcaster, Riyadh Khalaf, and they share their thoughts on LGBTQ and Sex Education.

    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.

    the-great-lube-taste-test

    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!

    Black Friday Ultimate Shopping Therapy POTW

    If your default pose this week has been "thumb-hovering-over-the-refresh-button-on-your-favourite-website-waiting-for-the-hottest-Black-Friday-deals", then this is the sex position for you.

    Look, we know pulling out your phone mid-moment is usually a no-no, but if our incredible deals have got you hot under the collar, then this variation on the classic reverse cowgirl lets you and your partner fill your baskets, as well as your boots.

    We're just kidding, of course.

    why-intimacy-is-more-than-sex

    Don't get us wrong, stripping down and bumping your uglies against another pair of uglies is a pretty intimate act.

    But when it comes to building, maintaining and reclaiming a close romantic relationship, sex is just one piece of the puzzle.

    Intimacy is a fundamental part of successful romantic relationships. In this blog we explore ways to build intimacy, which don't necessarily include sex.

    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.

    6-fun-ways-to-initiate-sex

    Lights off. Bit of cuddle. Some kissing. Sex.

    Lights off. Bit of cuddle. Some kissing. Sex.

    Lights off. Bit of cuddle. Some kissing. Sex.

    Lights off. Bit of a cuddle – do you see where we're going with this?

    If sex is always initiated the same way in your relationship, your love life tends to get quite predictable. Boredom is something we put up with on a long train trip or during a staff meeting – it's not something we should be experiencing in the bedroom!

    Try any of these 6 fun ways to initiate sex the next time you want to break away from your usual routine (remember to always get clear consent from your partner, no matter how they seem to be responding to your advances).
