Getting down to it has never been more exciting or filled with possibility thanks to the wide variety of sex toys, clothing, fetish gear and accessories now on offer. Where it once involved a red-faced dash into a high street store or a slink to the back of the bookshop, buying all the gear for your sex life has never been so easy thanks to the age of the Internet. But not all sex toys are created equally. Shockingly, sex toys aren't regulated by a government body the same way many other products are and it's important to consider quality over a tempting price tag or seductive advertisement.
This is dating with a difference — instead of tirelessly swiping right, your friends do the hard work for you. You create a crew with your BFFs which opens a group chat and you pick the people that you think your pals would be suited to, and they do the same for you. You can chat privately in your crew, discuss potential matches and share profiles of people who you want to set up. The concept is fun and gives you the opportunity to match people you might not usually swipe right for.
I missed the boat on the first wave of the dating app trend. And even after I bit the bullet and downloaded one for the first time, I still had a hard time getting on board with the whole idea of swimming through a sea of unknown faces to decide which one I might like to meet and ultimately, what, maybe even have sex with? But eventually, thanks to some good-natured nagging from my friends, I came around and took the plunge. Met a few of the faces, went on a few dates, even had a nice little fling blossom from one of those encounters.
