Foreplay is something that you don’t even have to think about in the early stages of a relationship. Getting turned on just by holding hands and being together, leading onto kissing, stroking and then the removal of clothes for even more intimate touching - all that spine-tingling good stuff generally comes pretty naturally while you’re still getting to know each other. This guide is aimed at everybody else.

Many of us can't wait to pack up and head home at the end of a long workday: we count down the hours and as soon as our shift is up, we're out the door. For others however, there's a stigma to leaving on time, or worse, we have a difficult time forcing ourselves to leave the office, even if we have no love for our work. Here are some ways to break the cycle of working late and get your evenings, and sanity, back.

Gamers like me spend hours levelling up our characters so that they're stronger and faster and can defeat enemies more easily. Why not try that in real life? I realised that I could use this mindset with my health, and was surprised to find that gaming had prepared me to reach my fitness goals.

Some of the most influential people in history kept detailed journals of their lives. Those journals served two purposes: a permanent record for posterity, and cathartic release for the people writing them. Even if you don't think you need either, keeping a journal has benefits you can enjoy immediately. Here's why you might want to sit down regularly to jot down your thoughts.

WordPress blogs are complex pieces of software with a threat surface that expands with each plug-in or theme you install. Whenever I set up a new WordPress site, one of the first things I install is Wordfence - a security plug-in that provides a number of services that help me monitor and manage those sites. Wordfence has launched a WordPress Security Audit service.

We all know eating vegetables is a good way to improve health. And for many years the focus has been on just eating more vegetables, be it fresh, frozen or tinned. But what if there was a quicker and easier way to get more benefit from our vegetables? Can the way we prepare vegetables boost their nutrition? Does tearing or chopping your lettuce makes any difference? And if we chop, does it matter what type of knife we use?

Most of us have a pretty good understanding of how the internet works - but it can be notoriously difficult to explain in plain English. This infographic from Internet.Frontier does a pretty good job of breaking it all down in easy to understand language.

Europeans use them; 60 per cent of Japan uses them; 90 per cent of Venezuelans use them. They're called bidets: Basins that jet water straight to the parts that need to be cleaned after you've used the bathroom. And according to Scientific American, they could play a major part in living a green, environmentally sustainable life. But for some reason, North Americans and Australians are not on board.

Dear Lifehacker, I always take my thumb drive wherever I go. I'm also a bit absentminded. I want to guarantee my thumb drive gets returned to me if I ever lose it. My idea is to have malware hidden on the drive in a specific folder labelled 'porn101' or 'myprivatefiles'. If the person opens that file, it will automatically encrypt their computer and ask them to email me to get the unlock code. (I will give it to them once they return the thumb drive to me, of course.)

Which brings me to my question - is this legal? It's not like I'm demanding money or anything. I just want my property back!

After upgrading my laptop, I spent months feeling bad that I hadn't yet sold the old one. It sat around for months, until one day when a friend was over to work on a writing project. He hadn't brought his computer, so I fired up the spare laptop, whisking away my guilt. That spare computer has now become a dedicated guest computer.

One of the primary vehicles used by bad guys to access our systems is stealing log-in credentials in order to impersonate real users. All the security processes and tools in the world are circumvented when someone has your username and password. That's where two-factor authentication (2FA) comes into play. 2FA works by adding another authentication challenge to the equation. It's not just about what you know - your password, it's also about something you have. That's where the authenticator apps from Microsoft and Google come into play.

"I want eggs, Mummy," is one of those phrases that will snap me out of whatever I'm doing and get me running to the kitchen. By the time my four-year-old says that out loud, he'll already have raw eggs in his hands. And if I'm not fast enough, they will be on the floor too. "I sorry, Mummy."

It's likely that you've got details of your whole life stored on your phone — the people you know, the banks you've used, the videos you've wasted hours watching — and you don't necessarily want that info getting out into the wider world. If you're keen to lock down your handset against unwelcome visitors, you need to take a few steps.

Knives are some of the most important tools in the kitchen, yet there are people who keep them in drawers, where they clang around, knocking into each other, getting all dinged up and sad. Do not do this. There are much better ways to store your knives, and some of them you can even make yourself.

Samsung and Apple have enjoyed dominance of the smartphone market for some time. But that is changing according to data from Gartner. Both companies saw their quarterly shipments fall compared to the same period last year with their rivals Huawei, Oppo and Vivo all showing solid growth over the same period.
