1. 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).

    6 Lingerie Gifts For When You Don't Know Her Dress Size

    Christmas gift shopping is a minefield, especially when you're a student with limited funds.

    And why won't anyone just come straight out and tell you what they want for Christmas? Why must we continue to play this inane guessing game year after year?

    Michael Bublé is blaring from every department store speaker, and if it's not him crooning in your ear, it's Mariah Carey, declaring that all she wants for Christmas is you.

    But you've not got time to fulfil Mariah's yuletide desires - because you've forgotten your other half's dress size. Is she a size 4, or a size 6? Is she a size 8 - or was that her shoe size?

    Get it wrong, and you will have rendered your gift uncomfortable, useless, and potentially offensive.

    Luckily, there's a simpler way: take a look at our top 6 one-size lingerie picks to find the perfect gift, regardless of dress size.

    20 Times Abbi and Ilana from Broad City Were All of Us

    Broad City Season Four premiered on the 13th September. As far as I am concerned, the only appropriate response to this incredible news is a hearty “YAS KWEEN!”.

    Abbi and Ilana have been gracing our screens for three years, with their struggle to make it in New York consistently leading to non-stop hilarity.

    There’s Abbi Abrams, Fine Arts graduate turned personal trainer, and then there is Ilana Wexler – a hedonistic, sex-positive 20 something who is Abbi’s best friend.

    After watching every episode religiously, I believe that Abbi and Ilana are two of the most relatable characters on modern television.

    Here are 20 times that Abbi and Ilana from ‘Broad City’ were all of us.

    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.

    4 Fantastic Toys For Masturbation

    For many of us, D.I.Y. is a term more often associated with tedious weekend trips to the hardware than something a lot more pleasurable.

    However, 'doing it yourself' shouldn't just be reserved for trying to whip up a shelf.

    During the middle of any stressful period, I can't be the only who could do with a bit of help trying to relax after those long days, and unfortunately, giving up some of our precious time to have some fun with somebody else just isn't a priority.

    However, that doesn't mean that we can't find some of that sexual happiness by ourselves.

    If, like me, you'd benefit from a low-maintenance helping hand to put a smile on your face, have a look at four fabulous toys that are fit for the job.

    How To Boost Your Bedroom Body Confidence

    For many (myself included), losing weight and toning up is on my New Year's resolution list every year. However, for a number of reasons, maybe it hasn't happened, and you're still not feeling as sexy as you wish you could in the bedroom.

    I like to think I'm a very body-positive person, and I genuinely believe in beauty at any size, but when it comes to my own body, I really struggle to put my beliefs into practice.

    But, really, body confidence comes from accepting your body exactly as it is, rather than trying to make it into what you think everyone else wants it to be.

    So, if you're looking for a boost to your sex appeal and sensuality, we've got three easy tips for you that can help you love your body, and everything it does for you.

    6 Best Toys For Mind-Blowing Foreplay

    You could say that foreplay is underrated.

    When it comes to sex scenes on television, there's hardly ever any foreplay (I'm looking at you, Game of Thrones).

    And if you're looking to porn for foreplay tips, you're outta luck, my friend. Zero, zip, zilch, nada.

    Even when talking about sex, foreplay seems to be missed out of the nitty gritty details.

    This is strange as, for many, foreplay is the best part of sex; having somebody bring you right to the edge of climax, and then go all-out for the grand finale.

    So, for those of you looking to explore the art of tease and up your arousal game, here are our top picks of the best toys for mind-blowing foreplay.
