Feel More Attractive, Sexy & Confident – 10 Ways to Give Your Self Esteem a Much Needed Boost

Knowing what you like in and out of bed is always good for your self-esteem, but we’re going to focus on between the sheets for this one. It can be difficult to feel confident in bed if you are unsure about what turns you on, so do some research! Treat yourself to some alone time and satisfy your curiosity – that means experimenting with toys, movies and whatever else takes your fancy. When you are more confident about what brings you pleasure, you’ll find that it’s a lot easier to be more assertive. That’s out of the bedroom too!

bound for trouble (2)

Erotica News: Free excerpt from Bound for Trouble edited by Alison Tyler

So, hell, now I find myself hog-tied, wrists bound to ankles with silky red rope, in the swanky riverside apartment of some guy that, until just over an hour ago, I’d never laid eyes on. All I’ve got on is a pair of black lace panties and a pair of Rupert Sanderson stilettos, having left my dignity somewhere over by the door. I’ve never been tied up before, I’ve never been spanked before and I’ve certainly no idea what’s going to happen next. And I have to say, I think I’m enjoying myself. But how the fuck did I get myself into this in the first place?

I think it was something I said.

Finding she wore no bra beneath the black lace, his hand moulded to her left breast; it filled his hand nicely and eager digits kneading the soft, supple flesh while his thumb and forefinger rolled the pebbled nipple. Thrilled by his touch, she arched her back, pressing her breast further into his palm, and moaned in utter wonder as he trailed his tongue along her collarbone, soothing the bite marks, her fingers tugging at his hair each time his thumb her playfully squeezed her pert bud.

hotel_room

Together for four years – and this weekend we try something new

We’re actually staying in a hotel room, for two nights, the two of us (my man and I) without anyone else. For most people in a relationship this long, this would have been out of the way and done with in the first 6 months, a year at most. Definitely before having a child, in any case. Not us. We’ve always had someone with us when we’ve stayed anywhere, from ex partners to the chauffeur slave who attends events with us.

No String Sex - No 1 Adult Dating Site for No Strings Casual Sex

A mountain of sex toys but still need sex? Don’t worry, it’s natural

Physical intercourse, or sex with another person, ticks psychological boxes that masturbation doesn’t have on its radar. Sex is a whole different ball game. You are considering the other person’s reactions to you, your body, your actions and words, as well as putting time and effort into discovering how best to please their body and mind. Sex is hard – excuse the pun. But still we desperately search it, seeking the advice of men’s and women’s sexual health magazines and international sex experts in a bid to become the most eligible sex partner (and sometimes life partner) we could possibly be.

Sex Blogger Spotlight Series: Missy May

I love interacting. It’s not often that some one comments on one of my posts, but it really means a lot to me. And I love responding and interacting when some one does take the time to comment. I also love how I am always learning. I am always researching, asking questions, reading, and more. Not only am I learning about the world of sex, sex positive stuff, rape culture, toy materials, etc, I am also learning coding and how to handle WordPress issues, and my favorite part is digging deeper and learning to be part of my niche’s community.

the act itself erotica magazine review-1

The Act Itself: A brand new print magazine devoted to the world of erotica

I was delighted to receive the debut issue of The Act Itself recently, free of charge in exchange for an honest overview and communication to my erotica loving audience here at Cara Sutra. My first impression upon opening the discreet, well wrapped package was the size of the magazine. Instead of little more than a leaflet which I was expecting (print is very expensive), I held in my hands an A4, glossy leafed book, rather than a magazine. With 150 pages to leaf through (which are admittedly in black and white unlike the outer cover) I knew that this was a magazine which would easily see any avid fan of erotica through four months until the next issue arrived on the mat.
