    4 Sexy Things To Try Before You Graduate

    I love trying new things sexually. Love it.

    There’s no denying the thrill of a first time in any sexual activity, from your first kiss, to your first taste of oral, and beyond.

    There is nothing wrong with a bit of experimentation, be it a tweak on something you already do, or a big step if you are the more adventurous type.

    Since I have dabbled in various experiences sexually - some just once, some which have become a favorite of mine - I thought I’d share with you the four things I view as being fun and accessible for all experiences.

    College is the perfect time to experiment and find out even more about what you enjoy in (and out) of the bedroom, so make the most of this period of excitement and freedom!

    Hopefully you’ll be brave enough to give one of them a go, no matter your relationship status.
