Buying Sexy Lingerie for Your Partner: How to Get It Right

It’s nice to give presents. It’s even nicer when it’s one you’ll both enjoy. Unfortunately, buying lingerie is a minefield of erotic fantasy (hello, Angelina Jolie’s latex outfit in Mr and Mrs Smith) and disaster.

For something that’s only worn for a few minutes before it’s thrown onto the floor – hopefully with passion, not disgust – there’s a lot to think about. What size do you get? Which style will suit her best? Colour? Material? And if you thought teddies were just stuffed toys, you’ve got a lot to learn.

Fortunately, we’re here to help. Think of us as your lingerie guardian angels. Whether you’re buying sexy lingerie for Valentine’s Day, a birthday or a weekend away, this post explains how to get it right.

Let’s Talk About Polyamory

The saying may be that two’s company, three’s a crowd but that doesn’t always apply – particularly for polyamorous people. Literally translating as ‘many loves’, polyamory refers to those who have more than one romantic relationship at a time.

Sounds like cheating, right? Well, it’s not. A polyamorous relationship requires the consent and knowledge of all those involved. Nor is a polyamorous relationship about having ‘a bit on the side’ or swinging. Each relationship is intimate, trusting and emotional.

There’s far more to polyamory than meets the eye – and studies have even suggested it could be healthier for us than monogamy! So, let’s talk about polyamory…

Singles Awareness Day and Why We Love It

Valentine’s Day is finally over and, for those of us who are single, now is our time to shine. For the past few weeks, we’ve been bombarded with enough romance, love hearts and candles to make us gag. Now we can step out of the shadows and celebrate our single life. Our life that means there’s no snoring in bed, no hair grips everywhere and no one stealing the duvet.

Today is Single’s Awareness Day and, while it may not be taken quite as seriously as other holidays, that shouldn’t make it any less celebrated. The pessimistic (i.e. jealous) people, nickname today as S.A.D. when really, we’re just being thankful for our single, entire-tub-of-ice-cream-for-me life.

Turn up the Chaka Khan and belt out the Boys are Back in Town as we appreciate Singles Awareness Day and why we love it.

What is National Orgasm Day?

Every 31st July we celebrate one of our favourite holidays. But what is National Orgasm Day?

A day to celebrate sexuality, relationships and the pleasure of orgasm; National Orgasm Day has become a permanent addition to our diaries. Basically it’s an excuse to turn down the lights, get yourself in the mood and enjoy an orgasm. It’s good for what ails you!

Orgasms aren’t only great fun but they actually have numerous health benefits.

  • Orgasms can reduce pain. Got a headache? A cheeky wank or sex can help make you feel better. Orgasms release endorphins which are the body’s natural painkiller.
  • An orgasm a day  or at least a few times a week will help to reduce stress. That blissed out feeling you get after an orgasm? Yup, endorphins again.
  • Improve your cardiovascular health. The more intense, sweaty and exhausting the session the better. Whether you’re working out your orgasmic muscles alone or with a partner, the increased respiration and heart rate is great for you. Energetic sex is an aerobic activity after all!
  • Not feeling very sexy? An orgasm is a great way to put you in touch with your body and make yourself feel good. Your body is an amazing thing- give it the treat it craves.
  • Helps you sleep- this one’s obvious. You’re relaxed, satisfied and just given your body a workout. If your orgasms aren’t helping you get to sleep maybe you need to have some more 🙂

Ok, I’m sold, how do I ensure an orgasm?

Joking aside, vibrators, cock rings and male masturbators are some of the most popular ways to enhance your orgasm.

Without worrying that your hand is getting tired, or your partner needs to come up for air you can concentrate on the pleasure.
