    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.

    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.

    Here's how...

    Last week, we spoke on the Lovehoney YouTube channel about squirting and Jess explained what squirting is (and what it isn't) so you know the difference between a squirt and female ejaculation.

    This week, we're following up with part 2 of our squirting sequel with 'How to Squirt'!

    In this sex advice video, Jess gives you her top tips for how to squirt when you masturbate, as well as how to make your partner squirt during couples play.

    Watch the vlog above to find out more and remember it's all about Stimulation, Hydration, and Relaxation.

    We've also listed our favourite toys to help you discover squirting orgasms here.

    What is squirting?

    Not to be confused with female ejaculation, squirting (sometimes referred to as gushing) is the involuntary release of fluid during intimate stimulation on a person with a vulva.

    But what is the fluid? And why does it occur?

    Jess tells you everything we know about squirting orgasms in this weeks YouTube video.

    Come back next week to find out how to squirt!

    positions

    Whether you like to change it up in the bedroom by contorting your body into a myriad of different positions or you depend on a handful of tried-and-tested favorites, making a few simple changes can elevate any sex position.

    It's no secret that sex is best when you and your partner are both comfortable and present - it's more difficult to orgasm when you're busy thinking about other things (washing, dinner, work - delete as applicable).

    Start by switching your phone to silent and telling your partner exactly what position you'd like to explore with them - you'll find that by saying it out loud it will definitely get you both in the mood.

    Here, we've rounded up a few ways to make your favorite sex positions even better!

    12 Reasons to Try Using a Mirror During Sex

    I often find that people have a similar reaction to looking at themselves in the mirror as they do when discussing sex.

    People get awkward, shameful and embarrassed. So, looking in a mirror while you're doing the deed might sound a bit uncomfortable, maybe even narcissistic.

    But trust me, watching yourself get down and dirty might just be some of the most erotic and sensual experiences of your life.

    Using mirrors during sex is a low-effort, low-budget accessory that anyone can try out.

    They can have a huge impact on your sex life and here's why.

    One of the most common sex toy questions we get asked is "how do I care for my Fleshlight?"

    Like many sex toys, a good scrub under warm water followed by a spritz of antibacterial sex toy cleaner keeps your toy fresh.

    But have you noticed how real feel toys, like Fleshlight, THRUST and TENGA, don't feel the same after cleaning?

    In this weeks YouTube video, Jess gives you step-by-step instructions for how to clean your realistic sex toy and maintain its soft skin-like feeling.

    (Hint: use renewer powder!)
