    female ejaculation and squirting guide

    Female ejaculation – or squirting – has been around for centuries. In fact, the Kamasutra (written in 200-400 AD) refers to ‘female semen’ that ‘falls continually’.

    Despite hundreds and hundreds of years of documentation of the benefits of female ejaculation, even in the 21st century, we still know relatively little about it.

    It’s only in recent years that female ejaculation has become a culturally desirable addition to a lady’s sexual repertoire. And quite rightly we say. After all, who doesn’t want to experience incredible orgasms?

    So if the whys and hows of squirting and female ejaculation are leaving you with a thirst that needs to be quenched, let our expert guide help you embark on your very own orgasmic, and potentially very wet, adventure.

    6 Sex Toys You Should Try If You Have Balls

    If you're the proud owner of an exceptional pair of balls, then listen up.

    When it comes down to providing powerful pleasure, testicles never get the credit they deserve.

    Your balls are covered by a thin layer of muscle, and this muscle extends into your abdomen. This means your cojones can take your orgasm, amplify it and make it ripple throughout your entire body. Who doesn't want that?!

    To spread this good news, I want to introduce you to 5 sex toys you should try if you have balls. Literally - I don't mean you necessarily have to be courageous or full of bravado to use them.

    Let's get the ball(s) rolling...

    Alix Fox for The Lovehoney Head Board

    In this Head Board article, we’re getting to the – ahem – bottom of the question, “If I’m a man who likes anal play, does that mean I’m gay?”.

    Here to offer answers is award-winning journalist and sex educator Alix Fox, co-host of BBC Radio 1’s real-life comedy sex stories show, Unexpected Fluids, and resident X-rated agony aunt on The Modern Mann podcast.

    Alix is also a proud Ambassador for young people’s sexual health charity Brook, so when it comes to bums, you know she’s not talking out of her arse.

    OK, my Puzzled-About-Posterior-Play Posse, let’s have a conversation about anal stimulation! I’m going to break this question down into easily digestible parts. Starting with…

    Nipple Toys to Try

    Boobs, boulders, bosom and so much more (many of which can’t exactly be written here), we could all come up with so many synonyms for breasts that we could fill an article with that alone.

    What far more people overlook, however, is that the number of ways you can stimulate your boobs and the variety of toys out there to facilitate this is almost as large.

    With boundless avenues for pleasure to explore it’s easy to get lost just looking for where to start.

    To help with that, here are our top 5 toys you should try if you have breasticles.

    Clitoral Stimulation

    When the majority of women find it easiest to climax clitorally, it's no wonder our customers are so fond of clit-specific vibrators.

    Amazingly, the clitoris has over 8000 nerve endings just waiting to be stimulated, and a clitoral vibe is an excellent way of accessing more parts of it - and generating multiple orgasms!

    If you haven't already got one in your artillery, take a look at our top 10 guide to find out which vibe is best for you.

    5 Foreplay Moves She'll Love

    Many of life’s most enjoyable activities require you to work quickly. A game of Boggle, for instance, or eating a 99 in the heat of summer.

    Sex is certainly an enjoyable activity; it's up there with board games and ice cream in my books.

    But good sex isn’t about sprinting to the finish line. Taking the time to engage in electrifying foreplay is crucial if you want to knock your partner’s socks off.

    Here are 5 tried-and-tested foreplay moves that your lucky lady is bound to love.

    Paul Thomas Bell For The Head Board

    Lots of you asked us, what is it that makes a man phenomenal in bed? Luckily, our Head Board sexpert and award-winning relationships blogger, is here to offer his take on the number one sex tip for men.

    Sex from a male perspective can often be more complicated than it really has to be. It's very easy to overthink sex, to over-analyse you partner's expectations and your own ability (or inability) to perform.

    It's important to remember that sex should be enjoyable for all parties. It's one of life's simplest yet greatest pleasures, but still we insist on stressing out about it.

    One of the biggest challenges for men is remembering that not all partners like the same thing; of course they don't! With one partner you may be a stud, and with another, you could be the greatest anti-climax the act of sex has ever known.

    There is, however, one trick that I firmly believe should work with just about any partner – and it's all about the build-up.

    Anal play is great. There. We said it.

    No matter your gender or sexual orientation, everyone has a butthole and that butthole is packed with sensitive nerve endings that can feel amazing when stimulated.

    Anal play should never (EVER) hurt and, with proper preparation and slow progression, can be a completely new (and potentially more intense) way to climax.

    Read on to discover our top tips for exploring your dark side in the most pleasurable way possible.
