This Is What Your Handwriting Reveals About Your Love Life
It's early in the morning and I’m sitting here with a cup of coffee. I’ve just scrawled on a piece of paper my to do list for the day, which includes the sign off to the list - “date night”. Hmm, there is so much possibility in those two words (wink wink). But then it struck me – if so much can be insinuated by what I’ve written – what about how I’ve written it? Does my handwriting tell wonders when it comes to what I expect on this date night? And what does your handwriting say about you and about your love life?
Love, Life and Lingerie – New Year Resolutions for 2019
Here we are, the end of another year and looking to the exciting times ahead, ever hopeful that this next year will be every bit as good – if not better – than the one just gone. But what will it include? Will the stars align, and fate be kind? Can we take matters into our own hands and do something to turn 2019 into the year of all years? New Year’s resolutions don’t have to be massive, unattainable challenges where we’re set to fail. So, from love, to life – and to lingerie, here are some of my favourite New Year’s resolutions you can think about to make your 2019 even more special.
Sex Survey Reveals – We Love To Be Naughty At Christmas
Well the weather outside is frightful but according to our exclusive sex survey, things get very frisky in the bedroom (and wherever you like!) in the run up to Christmas. Not only did respondents tell us when they had enjoyed the most sex, it turns out that that December sex fans are more likely to take more time over it and to go about it in rather naughty ways. It appears to be a lot more fun being on Santa's naughty list…
Are You Daring Enough To Take Our Exclusive Sex Survey…?
Ding Dong! It’s that taboo subject we all nudge-nudge, wink-wink at but rarely talk about in public - Sex. These days, sex can be so much more of a closed-door affair, with lights off and an almost embarrassing, “are you done yet?” approach to this furtive act. Yet it doesn’t have to be. The more free and easy amongst us are happy to do it anywhere, anytime – and for some – with anyone (albeit safely please). But who's doing what, when and how often, etc.? That's where our sex survey comes in. Are you brave enough to take it?
Stockings and Stilettos – How To Wear High Heels In The Bedroom
You wouldn’t naturally assume that footwear could be so desirable yet slipping into a sexy stiletto is probably one of the easiest ways to turn your partner on in the bedroom. Wearing high heels in bed is a dead cert when it comes to making your partner pant for more. It can re-enact so many sexual fantasies; sex with the boss, daring with a dominatrix, or the stranger at the bar with legs that go on forever. Afterall, what femme fatale would be complete without her stilettos? But just how do you introduce a sexy stiletto to the bedroom?

Mix rich and luxurious autumnal colours with some sexy sleepwear and you’ll be utterly ‘deciduous’ – your clothes will be falling off as fast as the leaves from the trees!

How To Be Hot Under The Covers In The Cool Of The Night
30 degrees seems so much hotter when you’re not lounging by a pool in continental Europe. Trying to do your usual tasks seems so much harder – and sweatier! I’m not one to complain, but when I’m spending all day being hot and bothered, the last thing on my mind is getting hot and bothered somewhere else -say, under the covers if you know what I mean. And there lies my problem. Hot summer days can make you feel frisky but being sweaty just doesn’t work as a romantic aphrodisiac. So, here’s some tips to reignite and enjoy the flames of passion amidst this summer heatwave.
The Best Bridal Stockings Or Tights For Your Wedding Day
So, you’re getting married? Congratulations! If you’re anything like me, you’ll be busy planning the best day of your life: fiancé – check, venue – check, dress – check… but you’re so mindful of the big stuff, the little stuff is easily forgotten, like what bridal stockings or tights to wear!

How To Be Daring In A Fishnet Dress

The Most Amazing Grand Masked Ball At Versailles
Once a year, around midsummer’s day, you can live like royalty and dance all night at The Grand Masked Ball At Versailles. Follow in the footsteps of the 17th/18th century masquerade balls and luxurious parties held by The Sun King, Louis XIV in his Palace of Versailles.

Love, Life and Bathrooms – Do You Share?
When it comes to relationships, sharing is most definitely caring – but just how much is too much? In days gone by it was just about acceptable to share a newspaper over the breakfast table. Bathroom habits and bodily functions were a definite no-go zone. Now, a new survey by Soak.com reveals that us Brits are willing to share much more than breakfast with our partners. No more is the bathroom a place of sanctuary and solitary confinement. It's now more a social setting where anything and everything goes.

Your wedding – it’s the happiest day of your life. This one special day will also probably become the most expensive 24 hours you’ll ever have.

Female & Proud – A Timely Spotlight On Fishnets And Feminism
Fat shaming, slut shaming, body shaming, food shaming, mum shaming - even period shaming. It seems we’re a shaming society these days and a lot of it seems to be directed at women and even between women. There have always been plenty of people who fervently ‘know’ that their world view is the correct one. This has also been the case with the feminist cause. Women's clothing has often been the focus of such condemnation. So does revealing clothing and sexy lingerie help or hinder feminism. Let's take a look at "fishnets and feminism".
Over 65 and Wanting More Sex? You’re not alone…
According to our offspring, parental libidos shrivel up by the time we hit 40. By retirement age, I think the younger generation like to believe that we are all saints and have returned to our virginal states once again.

Constanza’s New Year Resolution – Take Me To The Fun!
Constanza had had a good Christmas, all told. There had been quite a lot of parties, late nights and indulgences. The usual.

How to Look Sexy in 2018
In the good old days, being sexy was about how you dressed, with short skirts and tight tops – not to mention a smoky eye or some vampish lippy. Being sexy these days is far less about looks, and much more about us. Attractiveness comes from within, and true sexiness lies within the eye of the beholder. With major companies deciding to leave their models un-airbrushed to show real beauty, there is no better time to celebrate our differences. Confidence is sexy, it’s time to enjoy it. Here are some brilliant confidence boosting tips for how to look sexy in 2018…
