1. According to condom pioneers Durex, the message is simple: condoms are the only form of protection that can help stop the transmission of STIs and prevent pregnancy. And we happen to agree with them.

    In this day and age, with so many different colours, textures and varieties of condoms available there is no excuse for not protecting yourself and your lover from infection and unplanned pregnancy.

    This guide will explain exactly why condoms are so important, how to use them and how to choose the right style of condom to suit your needs.

    The purpose of a pussy pump is to create a vacuum over the labia and/or clitoris which will in turn make the tissue swell, encouraging more blood to flow and making the skin much more sensitive. Whether you use a pussy pump alone or with a partner, the unique sensations and gorgeously puffy appearance are sure to be a fantastic turn on.

    Pumping your pussy will leave it feeling ultra-sensitive and every touch, tingle and vibration will be heightened. This is perfect if you have trouble orgasming and ideal if you're looking for something new to spice up your bedroom activities.

    Being pregnant shouldn't mean you have to sacrifice on sex appeal - however, we often get contacted by women who have trouble feeling sexy during pregnancy.

    The key to shopping for sexy maternity lingerie is to choose something loose and flattering that won't start to feel uncomfortably tight as your baby grows. Comfort is important, so we recommend staying away from underwired or boned lingerie - save the lace-up corsets until after you give birth!

    It's a good idea to choose lingerie with adjustable straps and fastenings that allow you to change the fit as your baby grows. Something stretchy and flattering like the Seven 'til Midnight Red Underwired Babydoll Set would be ideal.

    One size lingerie tends to have more of a stretch than regular sized clothing, meaning it expands for a comfortable fit as your bump grows. We've chosen some key pieces below that look great before, during and after pregnancy, helping you feel satisfied and sexy for the entire nine months.
