Sure, when you guys first met you stayed up all night; Bumpin' and grindin', sharing your raunchiest desires into the early hours (all while Careless Whisper played softly in the background). But, when your relationship is old enough to legally buy cigarettes, kids, mortgages and television often take precedent over chatting about your innermost sexual desires.
Long term sexual relationships can often suffer from getting a little formulaic. While you may know each other inside out and have a healthy sex life, if you're holding back on sharing your true sexual desires you could be majorly missing out.
Whether you've just plucked up the courage to share, have lost a little enthusiasm for your usual bedtime romp, or have recently discovered a new sexual curiosity, it's time to start talking about your desires. In this blog we provide some handy tips to get that sex talk flowing.
You can get sex advice from loads of places, including Lovehoney (that's us!), doctors, sexperts and people like you, who may have experience with the very situation you're wondering about. In cases like that, an easy way to connect with other people is by joining a forum to ask the question. Our very own Lovehoney forum may be your first stop, but if you're looking for even more information, enter Reddit.
Reddit is the largest, most popular forum on the internet. Gone are the days when forums were all specific, separate websites: Reddit is a conglomerate of communities (called 'subreddits') where discussions are happening all the time.
Subreddits can be as general as r/Advice and r/NoStupidQuestions, where you can ask any question that tickles your fancy, or as specific as r/WhatsThisBug, where users post pictures of unidentified insects and the community entomologists will label your critter.
Since we're the sexual happiness people, we've explored Reddit to find the best subreddits where you can get sex advice.
In all areas of life, we have our favourites. Our go-tos. Our undies that make us feel great and our meals we never turn down.
Of course, this applies to sex, too. Think about that one position you always go back to or that one toy you reach for to guarantee a banging orgasm.
Much like a good bowl of comfort food, these sex staples make us feel content, safe, and satisfied. But sometimes, safe isn't what we're after: it's the thrill of something new and exciting that gets your blood pumping.
That's why we've asked our Lovehoney community what kind of spice they use to bring new flavour to their bedroom adventures, and they didn't let us down.
Here are 8 tasty tips teeming with potential for cooking up some spicier sessions in the bedroom.
