    We all know that being naked is pretty great, but what about the getting naked part?

    If your undressing style consists of an under-the-covers fumble or you prefer the rip-off-your-clothes-and-go technique, we suggest you try slowing things down a little for a change. And maybe add some music.

    Terrified? Stick with us.

    The idea of being the centre of attention in the buff is, quite literally, lots of people's idea of a nightmare.

    We've put together a handy guide to help boost your confidence and have your lover's heart pounding.

    Not only do garter belts hold your stockings up during the friskiest of trysts and the most energetic stripteases, they also boost your lingerie's sex appeal to eye-watering levels.

    What is Orgasm Play?

    Orgasm play (or control) is the act of taking charge over how, when and if an orgasm will take place during intimate play.

    Orgasm control can be explored during solo masturbation (sometimes referred to as "edging", "peaking" or "surfing"), but is often used as a tool for submission during BDSM and power play scenarios.

    During couples' play, orgasm control is usually broken down into two main types: 'Orgasm Denial' and 'Forced Orgasms'.

    Not sure what that means?

    Read on to find out their true definitions, why you might like to try it, and how.

    dirty-talk

    What's sexier than knowing what you want in bed? Openly and enthusiastically asking for it, of course!

    Wanting to be more vocal is one thing, but stage fright, insecurities and a fear of feeling silly can easily get in the way – not to mention not knowing what your partner's reaction will be.

    There's every reason to try talking dirty though – especially as the sexy phrases you moan, murmur and scream have been scientifically proven to trigger a reaction in the brain that make your partner feel even more aroused.

    And while we're not suggesting you turn the air bright blue from the get-go, dirty talk is definitely something you can master with a little bit of practice.

    Free up your hands and embark on mini adventures around your house and beyond with a suction cup dildo. A far cry from a one-trick pony, suction cup dildos can be used in many different ways, locations and scenarios, and come in all shapes, sizes and types.

    Vibrating, extra long, extra thick, realistic and with more than one member to enjoy - put your hands together for the ever-versatile and eclectic suction cup dildo.

    Now, when it comes to using your suction cup dildo, you could take a ‘suck it and see’ approach and we’re sure you’ll do just fine. But why not let our experts and community members give you the low-down on the many ways in which you can use a suction cup dildo? The list is endless but we’ve narrowed it down to the absolute best tips and tricks. Here goes:

    Teddy Babes are classified as a high-end, realistic sex doll but in reality they are much more than a means for sexual fulfilment. Instead of cold plastic, rubber or silicone skin, Teddy Babes have soft and velvety plush fabric. Instead of solid plastic or air filling their bodies, they are packed full of squeezable poly-fil fibres.

    The primary function of a Teddy Babe is cuddling and each doll has been specifically built to be tactile, soft and warm to the touch - an ingenious and innovative idea in a market that places importance on climactic potential above all else. To be clear, Teddy Babes are realistic love dolls and they have a penetrable vagina, but they work in different ways to your average blow-up doll and are nowhere near as ‘lifeless’ as a silicone sex doll.

    The varied fan base certainly mirror this sentiment and a quick search for Teddy Babes online will lead you into various forums where you’ll discover how these dolls evolve into so much more than a large male masturbator.
