    As lockdown restrictions start to ease and the options to see a few friends, go out for dinner, or maybe even date, all become possibilities again, it's easy to feel a little bit overwhelmed with choice.

    We may also realise that the tracksuit we have been wearing while making our sourdough bread and binging Netflix is all we have worn in about two months. While amazingly comfortable, we may not be feeling super sexy and ready to party.

    We have built ourselves amazingly cosy little lockdown shells that have kept us sane in isolation, but how do we emerge from the cocoon, and embrace our sexual selves?

    Sex and relaxation go hand-in-hand, right? When we're relaxed it's easy to get in the mood for sex, and when sex is on the table (both literally and figuratively) we feel relaxed.

    If only it were that simple! Sometimes we feel too stressed out to have sex, and sometimes the thought of having sex itself can be what stresses us out.

    But that's where Lovehoney comes in – we're here to help you on both fronts! Let's show you how sex can help you relax, and how you can relax enough for sex.
