Bonking, shagging, making whoopee, doing the bone dance ... whatever you call it, a good bit of love making is always a real treat. It relieves stress, gives pleasure, brings people together, it's a cracking workout and it has the ultimate power to create new life - what's not to like?
Loads of different people do it in loads of different ways but, like everything in life, there are always opportunities to make it even better.

After all, who doesn't want a more fulfilling, inspiring and exciting sex life?
There has been a multitude of research done on the world's oldest hobby (it would seem that scientists also think sex is as marvellous as the rest of us do), and plenty of that research has resulted in some clever tips, tricks and hacks to supercharge your sexual exploits.
Whether you like your fellow sexual adventurers to be tall, short, male, female, singular, multiple, familiar or complete strangers, it's always worth having a couple of tricks up your sleeve to ensure that everybody's world is well and truly rocked.
12. Put Your Socks On
Despite being considered one of the cardinal sins of sex, gettin' it on with your socks on could be the key to an out of this world sex life.
Studies have shown that women are much more likely to achieve orgasm whilst wearing socks. A group of participants were told to have sex both with and without socks on and, whilst only 50% reported orgasm when barefootin' it, 80% of the same group of people then reported reaching orgasm when wearing the socks.
It is thought that having snuggly tootsies has an effect on the brain that promotes a feeling of comfort, warmth and security. This reduces stress levels and means that everyone can focus on the task in hand. These, it turns out, are the perfect conditions for the Big O (who knew).
Everybody knows that the best orgasms happen when everybody is relaxed, happy and uninhibited. Apart from anything else, if both (or all, *winky face*) parties are wearing a big old pair of Christmas socks, it's very difficult to take yourself too seriously ... and if there's anything that can ruin good sex, it's taking yourself too seriously. No one wants to look up in the throes of passion to see you checking your power stance in the mirror.
