Pornography has come a long way over the past few decades. Well, maybe not so much in content, but in terms of accessibility.
The fact is, most of the fantasies we see acted out in porn have existed for hundreds of years, but previously, you had to go to some lengths to see them. Like subscribing to 'specialist' magazines, or braving a seedy-looking sex shop in a back alley.
With the internet age, our desires are at our fingertips.
People who are curious about trying/viewing something other than vanilla sex are able to do so with more ease than they would have, say, thirty years ago.
However, between the mainstream media, search engine algorithms and the influence of major pornography companies, it can be difficult not to become bored with the same ol' studio-filmed heteronormative perfect-bodied images flashing across our screens.
Here are just some things we are tired of seeing in pornography:
Adding lube to sexy playtime is one of the simplest ways to bring something new to the bedroom. They improve glide, enhance sensation and can even enable play that's otherwise not possible, such as anal sex or sex in the shower.
But, with so many lubes to choose from, it can be tricky knowing which lube is safe to use alongside which products. For example, did you know that you should never use silicone lube with a silicone sex toy?
Or that water-based lubes won't work in the shower?
In this week's video, Jess and Sammi give you the lowdown on lubes so you know the key differences between them, and can make any play super-slippery with the correct lubricant.
