When it comes to planning your sexy Valentine's evening, getting the setting right can be the difference between mind-blowing and mundane.
Scented candles? Check. Clean sheets? Done. Sexy playlist? Hang on.
Sure, it's easy enough to throw on your most-played tracks or your favorite 'Bangers 2017' , but you just can't trust that Spotify algorithm - no one needs to hear Call Me Maybe mid-coitus.
(Not that there's anything wrong with that song getting you hot under the collar, of course - different strokes for different folks and all.)
But not all sexy soundtracks are created equal, and everyone's definition of the perfect provocative playlist is different. So that's why we've created not one, not two, but five different sexy Valentine's playlists.
From super-slow seduction tracks, to love-making ballads, to throbbing guitar riffs, we've got a playlist for every taste and occasion - and you can give them all a listen here.
Are there any tunes that we missed? Which is your favorite playlist? Let us know in the comments below!

Well, now that October 31st is creeping closer and closer, we thought we'd do a Halloween version.

We've packed our new Halloween shop full of flirty costumes and spooky-style toys, but how can a night associated with ghouls, ghosts, and wee demon beasties be erotic?
We're glad you asked.
Here, we've collected our favourite Halloween-esque role play scenarios to take your night from frightful to delightful (without a drop of fake blood in sight).
Don’t forget, before any role play, it’s always a good idea to agree on a safe word with your partner so that if things get too intense, you can cease play immediately.
With Halloween sneaking up on us fast, many of us across the world are turning our thoughts to which mind-blowing costume we should be donning for the big night.
But, even if you don’t dress up as a sexy traffic warden or a slutty bag of Skittles, there’s a chance that your simple ghost outfit or creepy clown make-up could be causing a stir for someone.

The year is 2018. Scientists have proved that water exists on Mars. But can they definitively tell us what female ejaculation is and where it comes from?
You bet they can’t.
Female ejaculation, also known as ‘squirting’ or ‘gushing’, has been branded “one of the most hotly debated questions in modern sexology”, and for a very good reason. The scientific community can give us no definitive answer as to what female ejaculation actually is!
