One of the most common questions we hear at Lovehoney is "what should I try next?"
Often couples like the idea of progressing play, especially if they like their sex to be a little on the kinky side.
Now, clearly, there never needs to be a "next" if you don't want there to be.
Sex isn't a graded system or a 'competition of cool', and you won't 'flunk sex class if you don't keep trying lots of new stuff.
However, life does tend to be a lot more fun and satisfying when you're up for stepping outside of your comfort zone now and again – and never is that more true than when talking about sex.
(What's that saying about 'variety' and 'spice' again?)
So if you're up for trying something new in the bedroom and are looking for a few suggestions for what to try next, then this blog is for you.
The nights are drawing in, the trees are bare, and there's still a long way to go until Spring.
Some find this time of year romantic - after all, what is more charming than snuggling up to a loved one?
But some of the drawbacks of this season include colds, forgettable TV programs, stodgy food, mandatory time with relatives, less sunshine, roads becoming ice rinks and end of term assessments. Admit it, you're turned on already.
A good way to shake off the funk is to climb into bed with your lover... Except as soon as the clothes come off, the cold air bites you in the nether regions (not in a good way either). You jump into bed, only to be enveloped by the glacial sheets. Brrr.
Luckily, though, Lovehoney have a few items to turn up the heat (in more ways than one).
If you want to learn more about your sexuality, I suggest looking to the stars!
When it comes to determining what kind of lover you are, who you are most sexually compatible with, and what sex toys you are most likely to love, your horoscope can be a fun place to start - if you believe in the influence of the cosmos, of course.

Christmas gift shopping is a minefield, especially when you're a student with limited funds.
And why won't anyone just come straight out and tell you what they want for Christmas? Why must we continue to play this inane guessing game year after year?
Michael Bublé is blaring from every department store speaker, and if it's not him crooning in your ear, it's Mariah Carey, declaring that all she wants for Christmas is you.
But you've not got time to fulfil Mariah's yuletide desires - because you've forgotten your other half's dress size. Is she a size 4, or a size 6? Is she a size 8 - or was that her shoe size?
Get it wrong, and you will have rendered your gift uncomfortable, useless, and potentially offensive.
Luckily, there's a simpler way: take a look at our top 6 one-size lingerie picks to find the perfect gift, regardless of dress size.
