2017 was a tough year for many of us, and what better way to get through these past twelve months than by getting it on? Here, in no particular order, are the posts that offered up some helpful tips (and blessed distraction) this year.
The phrase “scheduled sex” evokes dread for most couples. We have the idea that sex is always supposed to be spontaneous, so making the decision to schedule sex feels like an admission that your sex life is officially dead. But scheduled sex actually be way more fun than you think.

Most people would describe rough sex as some combination of wild, animalistic, passionate, kinky, or raw. It’s not defined by one specific action, but can include things like one person being dominant, roleplaying, talking dirty, spanking, biting, scratching, or using props like restraints, paddles, or whips.

One of the great things about strap-ons is that anyone can use them. If you have a penis, you can use a strap-on. If you don’t have a penis, you can use a strap-on. You can use a strap-on to penetrate a partner of any gender, to subvert stereotypical gender roles or to play with those roles. You can use one for fun, or you can use one to manage erectile or orgasmic challenges.
Most people think of sex as a nighttime activity — but it can be even more enjoyable first thing in the morning. You were going to hit the snooze button a few times anyway, so why not do something fun instead?
