1. dirty-talk

    What's sexier than knowing what you want in bed? Openly and enthusiastically asking for it, of course!

    Wanting to be more vocal is one thing, but stage fright, insecurities and a fear of feeling silly can easily get in the way – not to mention not knowing what your partner's reaction will be.

    There's every reason to try talking dirty though – especially as the sexy phrases you moan, murmur and scream have been scientifically proven to trigger a reaction in the brain that make your partner feel even more aroused.

    And while we're not suggesting you turn the air bright blue from the get-go, dirty talk is definitely something you can master with a little bit of practice.

    Welcome to the dirty talk masterclass...

    In fact, you don't even need to get out of bed to reap the rewards of this routine...

    Whatever your New Year's Resolution, incorporating a few kegel (also called pelvic floor) exercises into your 'New Year, New Me' plan might be the best decision you'll make this year.

    (And if you didn't do it instinctively, I challenge you to start squeezing every time you read the word 'kegel' for the rest of the article.)

    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.


    How to have hot sex (when it's freezing outside)

    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).

    5 Sex Toys To Try (Now You're Not Living At Home)

    Moving out of home is a huge step. You leave creature comforts behind and take on many new responsibilities.

    You learn that electricity is not free, water is not free, Netflix is not free. Essentially, once you move out, life is about discovering that more and more things are not free.

    But along with these adult responsibilities, there are several massive perks. One such perk is that you can now buy any type of sex toy you desire.

    This is because no one in your shared house will go in your room while you are out, pick up your dirty clothes, hoover under your bed and come face to face with a massive dildo.

    I've put together a list of the best sex toys to try now that you have flown the nest. My criteria for selecting these was: if a family member found this, could you talk your way out of it?

    If the answer was "not a chance", it went on my list.

    Lovehoney Student Sex Advice

    If you had asked me how many different types of orgasms there were when I was 19, I probably would have said “…there are different types?”.

    Sadly, like many young women, the only type of orgasm I knew about back then was the kind I was habitually faking.

    But then I bought my first sex toy, and started being more vocal about what I needed in bed, and, because of this, I’ve learnt that there are at least 12 distinct types of orgasms that women can have.

    I’ve not had all of them yet, mind you. But to paraphrase my good friend 50 Cent, this year my plan is to get off or die trying.

    If you, too, are curious about this kind of 'Dirty Dozen', then just keep reading to find out what they are, and how you can have them.
