And, needless to say, to spend that time twined in and around each other’s bodies as much as possible.

Plus-Size Sex Tips: The Best Toys to Enhance Your Intimacy and Pleasure

Sex is for everyone. The physical pleasure and intimacy that comes from our tightest bonds is one of the great gifts of being human, and we celebrate all body types. That includes plus size, a significant segment of our population, but one to whom sex advertising seems to avoid.

Well, we reject that. While there can be certain considerations to account for with plus-sized sex, they can be easily handled with patience, understanding, a sense of humor and adventure, and the right equipment.

___________________________

Elena was just getting home… thinking to herself – Oh, another Valentine’s Day!  Henry probably forgot… being so busy with getting his car detailed and buffed.  Hmpt!  I wouldn’t mind by buffed myself!

She entered her home and it was dark… She thought: Yep, Henry forgot about our dinner tonight… oh well!  Then she stopped – Wait… what was that noise?  Did someone break into the house… no… that’s music.  Burglers don’t usually put on romantic music!

A Blindfold, a Stranger and My Master

A Blindfold, a Stranger and My Master

Today's Valentine's Fantasy Contest winner comes from RainCloud, who's sexy story won the Creative Award. 

_____________________________________

I woke up bound to the bed. M must have put on the Sportsheet cuffs and ankle cuffs while I was out. We've done this a few times, and I loved it.

This time was different, though. I had blindfold on, one that covered my ears as well, and was heavy enough to block out some sound.

I was completely naked, and could feel our blue anal beads inside me. I squirmed around, growing anxious, and wet.

A Sexy Cure for the Post-Election Blues

A Sexy Cure for the Post-Election Blues

No one can deny that this year’s election cycle was a tough one. Winners, losers and everyone in between seem to all be experiencing a whirlwind of emotions.

No matter where you fall on the spectrum, it’s probably safe to assume you’ve been riding the election rollercoaster. Whether you are pumped for the new president-elect or planning your big move to Canada, there are a whole host of ways that the mood swings associated with this race can affect you physically.

One of the most common ways that change manifests in our bodies is through higher stress levels. Fortunately for you, one of the best ways to lower this excess stress is found in our favorite hobby: sex!

Research shows that engaging in sexual contact during times of high stress can reduce anxiety and alter your brain for the better. If you were looking for an excuse to spend more time between the sheets, here it is! It’s time to heal those post-election blues with a little TLC.

Sex Changes Your Brain

According to a 2010 medical study on depression, increased stress levels result in higher levels of cortisol produced by the body. Increased cortisol can lead to long-term anxiety that negatively affects the chemistry of the brain.

In the study, scientists looked at sexually active and stressed out male rats to discover the benefits of rewarding the brain with sexual release. These scientists monitored the levels of stress-related chemicals present in the brains of the rats and the ways that exposing them to sexually active female rats altered their long-term happiness.

Good news! The results clearly demonstrated that consistent exposure to sexual gratification calmed the nerves of their frenzied furry friends.

Not only did sex make for more relaxed rats, over time their brains began to heal from the traumas brought on by high-stress levels. According to the study, the brains of the rats began to regenerate cell growth in the hippocampus — the area of the brain considered to be the center of emotions and memories and the powerhouse of the nervous system. While stress may work to deteriorate high-functioning areas of the brain, sex can reverse these effects, leaving you with a stronger mind and a better ability to ward off anxiety. If the next four years have you feeling in a funk, get a head start now by rebuilding your brain in the bedroom.

Bondage for Beginners

Bondage for Beginners

Have you ever fantasized about being tied up or tying up your partner? Have you gotten erotically charged with the idea of receiving or giving a spanking? Does the whole S&M world rouse your curiosity?

If so, you’re in good company and you have nothing to worry about. “Getting your kink on, can actually be healthy, both for your body and for your relationship,” says sex educator Tristan Taormino.

“People who practice kink explore the territory between pleasure and pain, eroticize the exchange of power, experience intense physical sensations and psychological scenarios, and test and push their limits,” she says. “Kink can be a unique laboratory—a sacred space where we feel safe enough to try new things, push our boundaries, flirt with edges and conquer fears!”

The first rule of BDSM (bondage, discipline, sadism, and masochism) is consent — nothing should ever happen against anyone’s will.

Taormino says kinky sex play engages us on many levels—physical, psychological, and emotional. “It takes a great deal of trust (both in oneself and in one’s partner) to bend over for a spanking or to be tied down to the bed,” she says. “The hardest thing for some of us is to feel confident that what we’re doing is not just okay, but it’s good for us, especially when we’ve gotten the message that we’re only supposed to have sex in one (or a few) particular ways. And frankly, until we talk with our partners and share our ideas, it’s hard to get beyond that.”

The first step is an open conversation outside of the bedroom when you are relaxed and comfortable. Start out with an affirmation like: “I like having sex with you and being in our relationship.” Then add that you’d like to be more playful and explore fantasies. Ask your partner if they’d ever thought about something that could be viewed as kinky. Maybe it’s light bondage or a blindfolded massage.

“Don’t be upset if they won't hold off or if they have reservations,” she says. “They may need to get used to the idea, especially if they haven’t had any similar fantasies.”

Once you’ve broken the ice, talk about some ground rules. Make a list of what you’re willing to do and what you’re not. Think about sensation play, like tickling with feathers. Or do you want to experiment with handcuffs or a leather whip or flogger?

“There are no right or wrong answers as long as both of you are excited about what you want to do together,” Taormino says.

Next, decide your roles. The “top” is the doer who initiates activities and actions done to the “bottom.” Do you love the idea of blindfolding your partner or giving someone pleasure through a spanking? If so, you’re probably a top. If you’re more into receiving the discipline and pleasure, then you’re the bottom. Of course, you may want to switch the roles, too. It’s all up to you!

Before you start, pick a safe word that means it’s time to stop or back away. Red is a common word couples use. “Your safe word is your safety net,” she says. “If you don’t like something that’s happening and you want your partner to stop right away, simply say your safe word.”

Now it’s time to let your fantasies go wild. “Like every first time, don’t worry if it doesn’t go exactly the way you thought it would,” Taormino says.

Who knows where your fantasy will take you, your partner and your relationship? Have fun and enjoy the journey.
