    Bondage is fantastic fun, spectacularly sexy, and often the perfect play to bring any couple closer in quite a number of literal and metaphorical ways.

    But when it comes to sharing your love of restraint and sensory deprivation with a new partner, it's not always easy to know how to bring it up.

    First impressions of bondage, however, as well as media-reinforced misconceptions, can be far less favourable.

    Sharing this kink with a new partner can be highly rewarding, but must be done with due care and sensitivity.

    With this in mind, I've created these simple and safe tips to help you introduce your partner to first-time bondage without fear.

    So, you're off to university and there are 10,000 things you have to remember to bring with you.

    Though you've probably thought about plates, cups, towels, and most of the boring stuff, with all the stress about where you'll be living and how you'll find your course, other details can be overlooked.

    And guess what? Your prospective sex life may perhaps be one of those details.

    I myself will be starting university in my first year in October and whilst I am of course sorting out accommodation and education-related items, my thoughts have indeed turned to what activities I will be up to when not studying. I have a high sex drive, so intend to engage in as much pleasure as I can.

    As such, I have thought ahead so you don't have to! Here are what I believe to be essentials (plus a few optionals) to ensure you can play hard as well as work hard this academic year.

    Paralympics Sex and DisabilityLast week saw the opening ceremony of the 2016 Paralympics in Rio, and in true Olympic fashion, it blew us all away.

    But when the athletes aren't hard at work breaking records in track and field, they're busy breaking beds in the Olympic village, with nearly half a million condoms being distributed throughout both the Olympics and the Paralympics.

    Though it's often perceived that there's something of a taboo around sexuality and disability, we Lovehonians strongly believe that sexual satisfaction should be available for everyone.

    So with this in mind, we've trawled through 149,000 of our customer reviews to find the finest recommendations for differently-abled pleasure - all as chosen by you.

    For many people, there are few things more mortifying than the idea of someone hearing them masturbate.

    While there's no reason to be ashamed of masturbation at all, the social stigma, fear of a certain reputation and many other reasons mean that most people would rather keep their private pleasure just that: private.

    University is a time of juxtapositions. A wealth of nightlife and no money to explore it, a world of academic study and no time to embrace it and, for many, a new horizon of sexual possibilities and far too little privacy to comfortably enjoy them.

    Statistically, university is one of the most common times for a woman to start experimenting with masturbation and sex toys, but it is also frustratingly often one where privacy is at an all time low due to the paper thin walls and eternal uncertainty about who's in the house.

    That’s where this handy guide comes in, to help you maximise your potential you-time whilst minimising the need to worry about nosy flatmates asking awkward questions.

    You’ve found the dress, the caterer’s booked, and you’ve managed to tweak the seating plan so Aunt Betty isn’t sitting anywhere near Uncle Bob. But what about the honeymoon?

    We all know that the very word, ‘Honeymoon’ is synonymous with ‘humping like rabbits’, and no wonder.

    Traditionally used to refer to the month after the wedding (which many believed to be the 'sweetest period' of marriage), it was expected to be the time when the bride and groom developed both their physical and spiritual connection.

    Well, other than the fact the many people have now had some sexual experiences before their wedding night, little has changed. The honeymoon is viewed as one of the most passionate times of our lives, which is great - although it has a tendency to put a lot of pressure on sexual performance.

    Not to worry! To ensure your post-nuptial couplings go off without a hitch, here are eight nuggets of sexpert advice. It's time to start married life with a bang. Or several.

    We're right in the middle of the hottest summer months, and though the sun may not always be around, the heat certainly is.

    But with the nights as sticky as they have been lately, it's not always that easy to get in the mood come bedtime.

    If you're anything like me, the evenings are more an experiment to see which combination of arms and legs flung outside the blanket keeps you coolest, rather than which combination of entwined limbs is most erotic.

    Luckily, though, there are ways to raise the raunch factor without raising the temperature. We've put together a hand-selected collection of summer-friendly toys, lingerie, and bondage gear to keep you looking and feeling your sexiest through the summer months.

    So whether you're getting steamy in Seattle, sizzling in San Francisco, or fiery in Phoenix, just read on to see our sultry summer treats.
