    Sexting is an awesome tool for setting the mood and making your intentions known. However, not all of us are pros at this particular activity, and expressing yourself sexually via the written word can often come less naturally than expression in physical form.

    Waiting for Sex Does the Three Date Rule Still Apply

    We all know there are supposedly those unspoken 'rules' regarding sex and dating, and while some of us subscribe to them, others regard them as a complete fallacy.

    Even for those that have no interest in restricting themselves and their love lives to those imaginary rules, the topic of "when should I?" pertaining to sex can often make one pause for thought.

    But in a world much changed from what it was a mere few decades ago, we have to wonder if these beliefs are still relevant.

    Casual and non-traditional relationships are much more widely accepted, and being open about individual sexual needs without necessarily needing a relationship has become as easy as clicking a button on your phone.

    So, is it still 'best practice' to wait 3 dates before sleeping with someone you want a relationship with?

    The best way I can express my views on the matter is to take you through some of my past experiences and their varying results…

    Regardless of what anyone tells you, taking nude photos is an art form.

    Though many of us may just believe it's a matter of 'point-and-snap', there's actually a lot more to it if you want your photo to do your body justice.

    Just as with any good photo, you have to think about framing, lighting, position, and many other things if you really want to get that jaw-dropping effect.

    While most of us are aware that a lot of work goes into a fantastic sensual photo, it should nonetheless look like it's effortless.

    So here are a few tips to help ensure your pictures are of top quality, every single time.

    When we talk about sex, the first thing that comes to mind for most people is 'penis-in-vagina' or some variation of this.

    Yet, while that's not incorrect, there are so many other ways to give and receive pleasure than through penetration or being penetrated, which are just as legitimate (and pleasurable) as any other type of sex.

    In my years at uni, I've had many a chat about sex on everything from Freshers' Week hook-ups, to the theory of sex and why we as a society are obsessed with it (in other words what happens when Sociology students drink with Psychology students).

    Penetrative sex always seems to come up in these conversations, and while I enjoy it myself, I know plenty of folks who often opt to have different types of sex instead.

    So here are my top picks for non-penetrative types of sex – or, "Outercourse". Some of these suggestions could end up being a new favourite and a bedroom staple, or you might never try them again - but hey, at least you gave it a go!
