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.
Consent must be the foundation to every sexual encounter and, while it’s straightforward, sometimes different interpretations can make it complicated.
I’m going to break it down – explain what it is, how it can be influenced, why it’s important, and when and how it can be given, asked for and withdrawn.

If your roomates are so chilled that they won't raise their eyebrows if you close yourself for an hour in your bedroom with that sexy guy you just met, well, you're super lucky.
For some of us, things just aren't that easy.
No matter how friendly your roomies are, sometimes living with them just makes it impossible to have sex in your bedroom. Would you truly want to be heard (or seen) by your friends while you moan and scream in pleasure?
So, sometimes, we are forced to be a little creative: we need to explore other places for intimacy instead of the old plain bedroom and create new scenarios to fulfill our desires.
I'm not saying you must limit yourself to the classic bathroom quickie: it can be exciting, as we all know, but sometimes it may be difficult to 'get to the point' in such a short time.
This is where super-discreet sex toys that you can wear out and about come into play…
Sometimes when you’re dating, there’s nothing worse than that, “What are we?” stage.
You find yourself thinking, “Are we dating? Are we seeing each other? Are we official?” and it can be a tough case to crack. Labelling your new relationship is something we all want (or need) to do but it comes as no surprise that a lot of the time, we don’t really know what we should be calling it.
Not only do we have that ever-so-helpful voice inside our heads telling us to get a wriggle on with it, we’re in the Facebook age now where the seriousness of our relationships is determined by the status we set on our social media profile.
However, if you’re not really sure what label you should be giving your new relationship in 2018, have a think about the stage you’re at first and take it from there. At first, it might seem clear as mud but once you’ve given it some thought, you’ll have it sussed.
Here are some helpful hints…
The body positive movement is about accepting and appreciating all human body types, no matter what they look like.
What society considers to be beautiful should not cause a person to lose confidence or to feel unworthy of love and respect.
Society's "beautiful" changes every five minutes anyway, so why bother attempting to keep up with what’s trending? We’ve spent the last three years obsessing over our eyebrows... we’ll probably be shaving them off by 2020.
We often hear about body positivity in conjunction with the fight against fat-shaming and the pressure women face to look a certain way.
There is more to the movement than that. Body positivity is against both skinny and fat-shaming, because body-shaming in all its forms can lead to mental health problems and harmful eating disorders.
But body positivity should be inclusive of all genders, races, and abilities, not just female weight. So how can being body positive improve your sex life?
