If one were to base knowledge of Roman history on film and television, it’s easy to think the entire civilization was a giant orgy interrupted by the occasional gladiatorial match.

But sex in ancient Rome was actually far more complicated than lustful parties. It played an important part in culture, as pleasure and a fundamental tenet of society. In many ways, Rome wasn’t so different from today’s world: it had prostitutes of various classes, there were homosexual relationships, and people really loved porn.

Get those nail clippers out NOW.

The world is full of information on what straight couples do in bed. In the papers, in the movies… everywhere. Girl-on-girl sex? Not so much.

1. Use your intuition

I know you’re thinking,”OMFG, how will I know what to do?” And that’s normal. If you’ve had male sexual partners that may help inform a fair bit of what you do, but it still might feel strange to be giving what you have previously received. The good news is that although tips and tricks are handy, sex is still largely intuitive whatever genders it’s between. You might find you surprise yourself…

As a sexologist, I am often asked for some quick tips for heightened intimacy and pleasure-filled sex.

It can be easy and more comfortable to stick to our daily routines, especially while juggling parenthood, work life, relationships, and more.

However, it is important to slow down and take the time to focus on inviting more pleasure into our lives. Oral sex can be one of the most beautiful expressions of intimacy, desire, and love for a partner or lover. That’s why I am sharing my nine commandments for mind-blowing cunnilingus.

No relationship is perfect and problem-free.

It’s clear that all marriages take work, commitment, and effective communication of needs, expectations, and desires. Marriage isn’t hard necessarily, but it becomes harder when people “go stupid.” Essentially, when one or both partners behave out of anger, anxiety, hurt, defensiveness, or maliciousness, the problems escalate quickly.

You all know by now that women don’t cum as easily as men do. It’s likely been an issue that has frustrated you, either with your current partner or past partners. Keep in mind that different doesn’t always mean worse. Women might orgasm differently or not as easily as men, but you shouldn’t assume that means their experience isn’t as good as yours. I’ve decided to make a list of the top female orgasm myths today and let you in on the truth. Remember a man who is knowledgeable about the female body and how it works will be a much better lover.

A Melbourne woman who was inspired to make her own sex toys two decades ago reckons people of all ages are spicing up their sex lives.

You might call it the elephant in the room: a giant, jet-black dildo that sits erect on the table between JD Ryan and me.

Eventually, I can’t take it anymore and I shamefully admit to JD that the black plastic penis makes me feel a little, well, embarrassed.

I know very well which female body parts you guys most frequently like to explore, but there is more to your partner than a vagina, breast, and butt. The largest amount of nerve endings may be packed into those areas, but a woman has pleasure sensors all over her body, and getting her in the mood may be as easy as stimulating some of these often-neglected, less-obvious spots. Incorporating touching these places into foreplay and sex, or just giving her some pleasure after a long day, will definitely earn you some brownie points. Here are the areas she most definitely dreams you showered with a little extra attention tonight.

New research reveals men and women’s true (and very different) motivations.

We think about sex. We fantasize about sex. We spend an inordinate amount of time and money in the pursuit of sex. We have sex. When you consider AIDS, childbirth, or “honor” killings, our survival and death are often intertwined with sex. Thus, it is worthwhile to spend some time on what scientists have learned about sexuality.

As women age, their sex drive can change. Decreased interest and enjoyment are two major complaints associated with this change. Before you write these changes off to fluctuations in your hormone levels, you should appreciate a very special mind-body connection that directly influences your sexuality. It’s how you worry, fret, and become anxious about your daily life. That’s right, how you perceive your life can influence your interest in sex. How does this happen?

A new survey has asked men and women how long they would ideally like their time in the bedroom to last for. And then it has revealed how long sex lasts in reality.

This is how long the average sex session lasts across the globe.

A new survey of 3836 people has revealed exactly how long men of different ages “last” in the sack — as well as how long women would like sex to go on for.
