    How to Boost Your Sex Drive

    Do you enjoy having sex but find that you’re not often in the mood to initiate?

    Do you wish you could get aroused more easily or desire your partner more often?

    Put your seatbelts on because we’re going on a quick tour around the sex drive.

    Sex drive or libido is basically how much or often someone desires sexual activity. It varies from person to person and there’s no such thing as a “normal” sex drive because everyone is different!

    There’s nothing wrong with a lower sex drive as long as you’re happy, but if you decide you’d like to increase your sex drive there are a number of simple methods you can try.

    Here’s my list of the best lifestyle changes you can make to put that sex drive into overdrive.

    Everything You Need to Know About Daily Masturbation

    Like with all aspects of sex, there are many weird and wonderful myths surrounding masturbation.

    Whether it's the potentially plausible (upsetting your natural sex drive) or the downright odd (hello, hairy palms!), everyone's got a view on frequent fapping.

    But when you think about it, solo sex is actually one of the safest kinds of sex. There are no worries about contraception, and who knows more about what you like than, well, you?

    Read on for many of the things that are commonly believed about frequent masturbation, and whether they are true or not.

    5 Ways Lingerie Can Make You More Confident

    One of the biggest misconceptions that people have about lingerie is that you need a certain type of body for it.

    In the past, I was definitely guilty of thinking I needed to look like a Victoria’s Secret Angel to even think about rocking a corset or suspenders.

    But – newsflash – this is total B.S.

    It’s 2018, and time to stop believing that you can only wear sexy lingerie if you’re a certain size with no cellulite or stretch marks.

    Lingerie is for everyone, whatever your appearance or gender identity.

    In fact, wearing lingerie can make you more confident.

    ‘How?’ you ask.

    Well, here’s my roundup of the 5 ways that wearing lingerie can give you the confidence boost that you deserve both in the bedroom and outside of it.

    Curious about butt plugs? Want to know what they feel like and why people use them? You've come to the right place.

    Your butthole is packed with sensitive nerve endings that can feel incredible when stimulated. But how do you get to them when they're tucked away in your butt? Of course, a finger or a willing partner's penis can help you out, but there is another, super-pleasurable option if you're keen for a little bumfunnery.

    Enter the trusty butt plug: an intrepid little toy that's shaped to fit your body and more than happy to help you explore the pleasures that lie beyond your backdoor.

    Butt plugs come in different shapes, sizes and materials, so which one's best for you will depend on your experience, anatomy and what kind of sensations you're after.

    With the right prep and progression, a butt plug can offer a new, and potentially more intense, way to orgasm.

    The term 'self care' has become a bit of a buzzword over the last few years.

    And while the term clearly means lots of different things to different people (a quick scroll through Instagram posts tagged #selfcare brings up 12 skin care adverts, a lot of gym selfies and a Kermit the Frog meme) at their core is a pretty simple idea:

    Actively taking control of your personal wellbeing.

    From using mindfulness techniques to help you focus on the moment to Marie Kondo-ing your bedroom, everyone can introduce a little bit of self care into their sex lives, too.
