Lists! Everybody loves lists when the calendar turns. The good, the bad, the fun, the sexy! Lists about sex shouldn’t be taken as any kind of gospel; however, they can sometimes provide little hints or even new insight to something you want to try or explore.

Challenge to the Sex Industry

Many folks who love sex also love their sex toys. That appreciation has resulted in a significant growth in the sex product industry over the past two decades - in some ways that are good, and in other ways ... not so good. There are some amazing companies out there doing great by providing amazing products. There are others using questionable marketing techniques, unethical business practices, and even others that are making money from counterfeit versions of those awesome sex toys. So, since we are putting our bodies in their hands, we should hold them accountable and responsible. These seven commitments sex toy companies can make in 2017 suggested by Formidable Femme can keep sex toy companies on their toes and keep us better informed.

Neither Mountain Nor Molehill

While the potential of dangerous sex products is a real problem, there are other issues people have with sex that really aren’t problems at all. There are still many myths and rumors abounding out there about sex, stirring up fear and concern where there really shouldn’t be any. And, of course, given the way sex has historically been made that much more difficult for women, these eight sex problems that aren’t actually problems do mostly center around female sexuality. Can this be a big change that is made for 2017? Can things like having differently-sized labia just be forgotten as ever having been something to present as a concern?

Bound for Play

Some folks like to keep their sexual learning a little more intimate and making a New Year’s resolution to try something new seems the great time to explore some of your fantasies. One of the number one ways folks try to step out of their regular sex lives and into something new is by actually making themselves new. Not for the long term, but just for sexytime fun. Role play can be a fantastic way to explore new sensations and desires, offering the opportunity to try on new hats, outfits, or even genders. Adding in the potential of bondage will, no doubt, raise the temperature of the scene. If role play and bondage was something you wrote down as a new year’s resolution, these seven new role play ideas that incorporate bondage might leave you and all the new you’s you play, in a damn hot spot.
