1. Being pregnant shouldn't mean you have to sacrifice on sex appeal - however, we often get contacted by women who have trouble feeling sexy during pregnancy.

    The key to shopping for sexy maternity lingerie is to choose something loose and flattering that won't start to feel uncomfortably tight as your baby grows. Comfort is important, so we recommend staying away from underwired or boned lingerie - save the lace-up corsets until after you give birth!

    It's a good idea to choose lingerie with adjustable straps and fastenings that allow you to change the fit as your baby grows. Something stretchy and flattering like the Seven 'til Midnight Red Underwired Babydoll Set would be ideal.

    One size lingerie tends to have more of a stretch than regular sized clothing, meaning it expands for a comfortable fit as your bump grows. We've chosen some key pieces below that look great before, during and after pregnancy, helping you feel satisfied and sexy for the entire nine months.

    If you like the look of shiny clothing, you may have already tried PVC or patent leather. The next step for many people is trying latex or rubber. You don't have to be a hardened fetishist or fashionista to try latex and this guide will help you choose the right size latex wear and explain how to put it on.

    Before you start: check that you do not have a latex allergy. Cut cheap latex gloves into strips and place them in various places against your skin (under a bra strap, inside a sock, inside a waistband) and, after an hour or two, check for any signs of irritation.

    You may be thinking; “But I've used condoms, I know I'm not allergic.” You should still patch test various parts of your body before encasing yourself in the stuff, just to be sure.

    Because latex is a natural, biodegradable material and it’s incredibly sensitive to oils, including the natural oils in your skin. Latex items can be expensive and become sentimental and if you're not careful with cleaning and storage, the next time you reach for your favourite latexwear it could have completely disintegrated.

    However, it’s really easy to keep your latex looking as good as new and ready to wear over and over again. All you need to do is make sure you wash and store your latex properly, and this guide explains precisely how to do it to prolong the life of your favourite pieces.

    No matter what kind of Fleshlight you own, they're easy to clean and the care instructions are the same. By taking a little time to clean and care for your Fleshlight, you'll prolong the life of the realistic-feel material so you can enjoy these premium male sex toys for longer.

    Not only can a penis enlargement pump deliver intense personal pleasure, it can get a man perfectly primed for bedroom action and increase length and girth - given time! A penis pump creates a vacuum over the penis to encourage blood flow and as the blood flow to the penis is increased, the erectile tissue expands, giving you a stronger erection.

    The tissue in your penis will respond to regular pumping, so how big and strong your erections become depends on how much time you have to spare. Pump once or twice a week and in 2 - 3 months you will see an increase to your flaccid penis size of up to 30 percent!

    As more men become comfortable with their sexuality and start exploring anal play for themselves, it makes sense to invite a partner to help you explore every inch your body, including areas once thought of as ‘out of bounds'.

    The prostate gland is a special part of a man’s body that is directly linked to his penis and testicles, which means that by stimulating this round nub, located around 2 inches in on the front wall of the anus, it will directly affect the rest of his genitals and result in some explosive orgasms.

    In recent years, pegging has taken the sexual world by storm. Pegging is when a woman uses a strap-on harness and dildo to anally penetrate a man, and indulge in female-male strap-on sex. Pegging allows all these little sweet spots to be accessed and enjoyed to their full potential, which many men struggle with on their own.
