1. 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.
