sex life

So, think your sex life peaks in you twenties? 

Think again.

According to new research, a woman's sex life actually peaks in her late thirties.

A study commissioned by contraceptive app Natural Cycles asked 2,600 women about orgasms, feelings of attractiveness and how much they enjoyed sex.

The women's answers were then analysed by age groups – below 23, 23-35, and 36 and over.

In terms of sexual attractiveness, 80 per cent of women aged 36 and over said they felt sexy and comfortable in their own skin.

On the other hand, only 70 per cent of women under 23 and 40 per cent of women aged 23-35 claimed to be happy with their appearance.

What's more, the results revealed that the older a woman is, the more likely she is to climax on a regular basis with almost 60 per cent of the older age group reporting frequent and better orgasms – a full 10 per cent higher than the younger groups.

However, the biggest contrast was seen when the groups were asked if the had great sex over the last four weeks. 

86 per cent of the older group said they had, while just 56 per cent of the youngest said the same. 

So, if your sex life is lacking a certain je ne sais quoi at the moment, don't worry, it's all ahead of you. 



They were what we all thought Love Island was about and when Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham were crowned the 2018 winners, it seemed that a Love Island wedding and babies were on the cards.

Alas, it was not to be and the couple shocked us all when they announced (or rather, Dani did) on Instagram that they had split after six months together.

The 22-year-old took to social media to post a message about what had happened between the pair.

She wrote, ''Jack and I have sadly decided to part ways. It’s been an incredible six months and we will always have a place in our hearts for each other, but sadly we’ve come to the realisation that it’s not mean to be long-term. We both plan to stay friends, I hope you’ll all understand. Love, Dani xx.''


I had the best day shooting this cover feature with @youmagsocial I hope you all enjoy reading it today xx

A post shared by ♡ Dani Dyer ♡ (@danidyerxx) on

The former couple were one of the few to not have sex in the villa during the summer and when they left Jack said that their first time ''wasn't a great performance'' but that it was ''amazing'' now.

However, Dani now claims that the 27-year-old was ''talking shit.''

She said before the break up that, ''People seem to want to know what we are getting up to of a night-time but this is our life, not some sort of sex-education class.''

We wonder how the rest of this break up aftermath is gonna pan out – get the popcorn and watch this space…


Tell me this – what is better than an ice cold gin and tonic? 

Sex, most people would argue. However, what if there was a way in which you could combine the two?

Yes, I'm serious. 


The sexy people over at Playtime have launched a new range of lubes, all inspired by well-loved cocktails (yes, there's a pun there somehwere). 

Anyway, the stand out flavour in the range of boozed up lubricants has to be the G&T, although they all sound pretty cool. 

Alongside the G&T, we have a mojito flavour and a sex on the beach flavour (obviously!)


Amanda Lewis, head of Marketing for Playtime products, said: "We couldn't be more excited to introduce our Gin and Tonic, Sex on the Beach and Mojito flavoured lubes to the market."

"These new products epitomise what the Playtime brand is all about – fun, full of flavour, great quality and exciting. They'll spice up bedroom activity and bring plenty of enjoyment to sex lives this summer!"


And these are just the new goodies! The brand have been mastering the art of lube for years, and have so many varying options. 

From cherry and strawberry to tingling and warming – theres so many ways to spice up your sex life.

PLUS – these lubes only cost €1, so both your sex life and your budget will be satisfied. 



We all know we should drink eight glasses of water a day, but in reality few of us manage to actually hit that target on the regular.

But if you knew your sex life would enjoy a boost based on your H2O consumption, you'd probably be more likely to drink up, right?

Well, according to those in the know. when you skimp on your water intake, you run the risk of a drier vagina which, unsurprisingly, makes for a less stimulating time in the bedroom.

"The skin of the vagina is susceptible to dryness if not taken care of properly," women's health expert, Sherry Ross, explained while speaking to Glamour magazine.

And while downing bottles of water will apparently do wonders for our sex life, we'd also do well to remember that no body part is less important than another when it comes to care and maintenance.

Using a comparison we should hope everyone already knows, she added: "A healthy vagina needs the same hygienic attention as any other part of the body, similar to the way we care for our face."

Well, you heard her, ladies. Drink up, and get down.


There’s no denying that cycling has many benefits: it gets you up off the couch, allows you to cheat traffic and is a form of work out and transportation all in one.

But unfortunately – as with everything – it is possible to have too much of a good thing.

According to one 2012 study, cycling can negatively effect a woman’s sex life because all that time in the saddle can actually desensitise the vagina.

While comparing a group of female runners to a group of female cyclists, a team of Texan scientists found that when women regularly rode 10 or more miles per week (that’s around 16km) their “vaginal and labial genital sensation” was reduced.

According to Cosmopolitan, bikes on which the handlebars were set at a lower level than the seat were found to cause the most damage and this unfortunate news applies to both real bicycles and the ones you use in the gym.

So the next time you find yourself eyeing an exercise bike, maybe consider the cross trainer instead!

When we sleep, our subconscious minds take over. Because of this, the body language we use with a partner while we snooze can be a remarkably precise way to gauge what’s going on in our relationships.

Many other experts and psychologists agree with this idea, including Patti Wood, author of Success Signals, A Guide to Reading Body Language.  

“Even if you can’t or don’t articulate those things while you’re awake,” Patti says, how we sleep can show how we're really feeling.

Many experts have conducted studies in and written books on the subject and they have uncovered the most popular couple sleeping positions and the secrets they have found about each is VERY intriguing…

The Spoon

According to a study done by relationship psychologist Corrine Sweet, the position is only adopted by a fifth (or 18 percent) of couples and demonstrates a dynamic in which, “ One partner takes a protective stance over the other.”

And even though it's sweet, it can also mean you have a good sex life. 

“It’s a very vulnerable position that’s sexual, but says, ‘I trust you.’”


The Loose Spoon

New couples tend to have the most physical contact in bed, but once the relationship matures, the novelty of sharing a mattress wears off.

The loose spoon is typically what a couples that are a fans of spooning eventually do once their relationship matures and each individual wants to revert to a position that produces the best quality sleep.


The Chase

This is like spooning, but it’s when one person is in pursuit of the other. One person has drifted to the other side of the bed, and the other one is “chasing” them.

This can mean two things. One that the person who is being chased wants to be pursued, or is playing hard to get.


The Tangle

This extremely intimate position is even more rare than the Spoon. It tends to happen when there is either intense emotions at play (like after lovemaking) or at the start of a romantic relationship.

But if your relationship is mature, and you're still doing the tangle, it could be a sign that you're a little bit too co-dependant on your partner.


The Unravelling Knot

Believe it or not, this position is a sign of a stronger relationship than The Tangle. Yet only eight percent of couples adopt this two-part position. Dr. Sweet said it’s, “A compromise between intimacy and independence, allowing for the best of both worlds.”


The Space Hog

If a partner takes the “starfish position,” one in which they sprawl out and hog the bed, this means that they tend to be selfish — especially if they begin to push the other partner so they’re hanging off the bed.

If this is happening in your relationship, it’s time to have an honest conversation.



Italy not only has pizza, history and fantastic weather – it can now lay claim to having the best male lovers in the world.

In a recent global survey of more than 6,000 people, it was found that Italians were the most satisfied with their sex lives. The five other nations included in the poll were France, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Britain.

While the lucky people of Italy expect sex to last for at least ten minutes, the Scots have a different idea. Their expectations were a little lower than the Italian stallions – almost one in ten said they only expect it to last two minutes. We know where we’re not going on holiday anyway…

Unfortunately for the Brits they were found to be the least satisfied in bed.

Keep up the good work men!
