Are You Daring Enough To Take Our Exclusive Sex Survey…?
Ding Dong! It’s that taboo subject we all nudge-nudge, wink-wink at but rarely talk about in public - Sex. These days, sex can be so much more of a closed-door affair, with lights off and an almost embarrassing, “are you done yet?” approach to this furtive act. Yet it doesn’t have to be. The more free and easy amongst us are happy to do it anywhere, anytime – and for some – with anyone (albeit safely please). But who's doing what, when and how often, etc.? That's where our sex survey comes in. Are you brave enough to take it?
How To Look Sexy And Be Comfortable In Suspender Tights
Stockings or tights, tights or stockings… it is a question I’ve often deliberated – even blogged about. There are so many lovely benefits to both, but which is better? I like the comfort of tights, but stockings are undeniably sexy in a way that tights can never be… or can they?

So, if you’re tempted to try suspender tights for yourself, which are the best styles to go for? Here’s a few ideas to get you started.

Stockings and Stilettos – How To Wear High Heels In The Bedroom
You wouldn’t naturally assume that footwear could be so desirable yet slipping into a sexy stiletto is probably one of the easiest ways to turn your partner on in the bedroom. Wearing high heels in bed is a dead cert when it comes to making your partner pant for more. It can re-enact so many sexual fantasies; sex with the boss, daring with a dominatrix, or the stranger at the bar with legs that go on forever. Afterall, what femme fatale would be complete without her stilettos? But just how do you introduce a sexy stiletto to the bedroom?

Brazen Boobs – An Uplifting Guide To The Best Open Cup Bras
The recent trend to flash some flesh doesn’t just stop at the daring derriere. We also have the rise in popularity of open cup bras. These busty beauties, of little or no fabric, vary greatly. From the shelf bra to quarter bras, cage bras, or even side, frontal or full-on cut out ‘peekaboo’ styles. In fact, the list is so extensive that the definition can be rather vague, and certainly very confusing. Still, these cheeky pieces of lingerie luxury can be sassy, sexy and utterly scandalous.

How To Be Confident When Plus Size Lingerie Shopping
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I am not your typical thinner than thin, skinny Minnie, lingerie lover. No folks. I am a human being with wobbly bits and a slightly bigger than average waistline (heck, I like wine and cheese too much). Whilst I see myself as ‘normal’ – I know that some lingerie brands do not.

Here are my list of do’s and don’ts when it comes to plus size lingerie shopping.
How To Be A Temptress In Sheer Lingerie
Sheer lingerie – it’s a bit like marmite. Some love it, some… well not so much. But I believe sheer lingerie is only really disliked by the people who haven’t given it a go. It’s a perfectly subtle approach to seduction, giving you an almost naked look, but with the control factor that any decent lingerie provides. Shopping for sheer can be unnerving for first timers. Like most lingerie, there are many different styles and levels of sheer you can adopt. So, whether you are just dipping your toe in the sheer pool or diving right in – here’s a few tips.

30 degrees seems so much hotter when you’re not lounging by a pool in continental Europe. Trying to do your usual tasks seems so much harder – and sweatier! I’m not one to complain, but when I’m spending all day being hot and bothered, the last thing on my mind is getting hot and bothered somewhere else -say, under the covers if you know what I mean. And there lies my problem. Hot summer days can make you feel frisky but being sweaty just doesn’t work as a romantic aphrodisiac. So, here’s some tips to reignite and enjoy the flames of passion amidst this summer heatwave.

How To Be A Wonder Woman With A Bodysuit
The bodysuit was only invented 60-or-so years ago and was first worn by pin-up model Bettie Page in the 1950s.

How To Be Bold In Strappy Lingerie
Straps and lingerie go together like strawberries and cream, elevating the lingerie from the sleek and simple to the sublimely sexy.

Love, Life and Bathrooms – Do You Share?
When it comes to relationships, sharing is most definitely caring – but just how much is too much? In days gone by it was just about acceptable to share a newspaper over the breakfast table. Bathroom habits and bodily functions were a definite no-go zone. Now, a new survey by Soak.com reveals that us Brits are willing to share much more than breakfast with our partners. No more is the bathroom a place of sanctuary and solitary confinement. It's now more a social setting where anything and everything goes.

Female & Proud – A Timely Spotlight On Fishnets And Feminism
Fat shaming, slut shaming, body shaming, food shaming, mum shaming - even period shaming. It seems we’re a shaming society these days and a lot of it seems to be directed at women and even between women.

Over 65 and Wanting More Sex? You’re not alone…
According to our offspring, parental libidos shrivel up by the time we hit 40.
