    One of the best things about erotic massages is that they can be whatever you choose to make them.

    Full-body or focused on one particular fun-zone, romantic or purely sensual, part of sexy role play – or just you two doing your thing.

    We all start out as virgins, which is honestly kind of great.

    The first times experiencing each potential avenue of sexual pleasure might be clumsy, intimidating and far from how we imagine them going, but they can still be some of the best and most memorable sexual encounters we have.

    For some students, though, penetrative sex just isn't what they're after from the uni experience and many make it through the full three years (or more) without once dipping a toe in the pool of student sex.

    Whether it's for religious reasons, asexuality, just wanting to wait until you're absolutely certain you've found the right person or anything else - here are our top things you must know for life as a student virgin!
