1. A clit clamp is a simple sex toy designed to gently squeeze the clitoris and provide thrilling arousal without vibrations.

    They can be worn during masturbation, foreplay and even sex, making them super-versatile. During wear they offer direct stimulation where you need it most, and when removed they leave the clitoris super-sensitive to subsequent touches.

    You'll sometimes see clit clamps referred to by different names, such as clitoral clamps, clit jewellery, clit clips, pleasure clips, Cleopatra's clip, genital clamps or any variation of these, but don't worry. They're all the same thing.

    How To Ask for What You Want in the Bedroom

    Sex is wonderful, and there are probably few of us reading this who would disagree.

    But, at times, it can be frustrating, embarrassing, and downright awkward. The most common woe I hear from friends is that they aren't getting what they want in the bedroom. Sure, sometimes what they want is a Champagne breakfast in bed, but we can't all have that everyday.

    I'm talking about getting what you want between the sheets, and for some, the prospect of talking to a partner about this can be a scary thought. But it doesn't have to be.

    The root cause for most people is that they aren't confident in communicating their desires, and for some, they aren't even sure what it is that they want.

    Never fear! With these top tips you will soon have all of the tools you need to know what you want in bed - and how to ask for it.

    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.

    Being in a long distance relationship is no picnic, and I speak from experience.

    I lived twenty-four hours away from my boyfriend for a year, so we hardly ever got to have picnics, let alone have mind-blowing sex with each other.

    I have to say, one of the great things about long-distance relationships is that you both get really good at communication; however, long distances couples do tend to get sick of mac-n-cheese masturbation pretty quickly.

    (For those of you who haven't heard the term before, The Dicktionary defines mac-n-cheese masturbation as, "Masturbation that is standard, unsurprising, and requires the minimum amount of effort. Just like a bowl of macaroni and cheese".)

    So, here are my sex game suggestions for long distance couples. Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favour!
