He ran my errands, massaged me on command, and requested to sleep on the floor. It was my first time being in a romantic partnership where I truly felt like I could be myself.

Back in December, I relayed the romantic tale of my first sex slave. My feelings on having a submissive partner were unclear: I didn’t like the whipping and spanking, but I did love being worshipped and having my dishes cleaned for me. After my sex slave and I broke up, I wasn’t sure if it was really possible to be a part of this community if I didn’t want to call men “small-dicked shitheads” and beat them up for not following my orders. I tried dating on Fetlife, but after getting too many messages from gentleman begging me to penetrate them with a dildo or be the star of my very own gang bang, I decided to delete my account. I was closing to giving up until a friend of mine suggested I use OkCupid.

“Some people basically find a threesome a bucket list fantasy they may or may not enact, but they keep it in their ‘fantasy bank’, because they like the way it makes them feel.”

Most men have fantasized about it, and most women have been propositioned for it: a threesome. A ménage à trois has appeal for several reasons, including the allure of being the center of sexual pleasure, while pleasing others at the same time. The forbidden turns into a night of double the pleasure, double the fun. But should the fantasy of a threesome become a reality?

While many people enter into non-monogamy when already “coupled,” there are some ways that folks approach this transition that can make folks like me feel more like prey than people. While there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a threesome or wanting to both date the same person, unicorn hunting can quickly become predatory, coercive, and controlling. So how can you be sure that you’re not falling into these patterns? Tonight, we’re talking couple privilege and ethical treatment of unicorns.

There are some things that many of us simply don’t understand like trigonometry or quantum physics. But why anyone would allow their best friend to have sex with their boyfriend on camera certainly ranks high on the list of things that will totally warp your mind. After all, there aren’t a lot of women who are secure enough to just share their man with just anyone. And yet, that’s exactly what a Los Angeles-based model and YouTuber who goes by the name of Lena The Plug did. Why she did it or what her endgame is might seem baffling, but here’s her raunchy story. Then you be the judge. Not that she’ll care.

Spike, Angel, and all the others were the embodiment of unbridled, kinky, sadomasochistic sex for a heavily female and LGBTQ audience.

Two attractive teenagers break into a high school after dark to explore the empty corridors and each other. One of them hears a sound, freaking the other one out. It’s only two minutes into the first episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and a teenager—or, more accurately, a 150-year-old dead one—has sunk their fangs into a neck.

This one is for all the thrill seekers out there.

If you’re the type that likes to push boundaries, gets bored of the same old routines, and wants something new, taboo, and exciting, then I have two words for you: Edge Play.

Keep in mind, this isn’t for the faint-hearted. But, if a naughty, mischievous mood strikes you and your partner, edge play can add the perfect elements of spice and danger that will bring you and your partner closer and step up your level of sexual intensity. How so? Edge play brings you right to the brink of the deepest, darkest parts of the psyche, the places few people dare to tread.

We give you permission to play with her feet—without feeling like a freak.

The mere mention of the word “fantasy” arouses thoughts of threesomes, buxom blondes, and role-playing.

But “fetish”? That just freaks people out.

The reality: A fetish is just a specific type of fantasy—and one that more people have than you probably realize.

“If you think of a fetish that’s a 10-out-of-10 level of intensity—someone in chains on an iron cross in their basement—it might seem really strange and uncommon,” says Scott Jacobey, Ph.D., a sex therapist who specializes in alternative sexual behaviors.

Joseph Finegan is keen for everyone to know he’s just a normal guy who works at a nightclub and takes photographs in his spare time. It’s just that those photographs happen to be of guys having secretive sex parties, arranged through Craigslist and held in Manchester’s cheap hotels.

Last year, we asked Joe to write about his experience of taking the photos, and he got back in touch recently to let us know he’s releasing a book of his work. That book – Do Not Disturb – is out today, and Joe’s holding a pop-up exhibition at Doomed Gallery in Dalston tonight to celebrate its launch.

To see what’s changed in the year since we last heard from him, I gave him a call for a catch-up.
