Peta Todd's Lingerie Guide
'The word ‘sorry’ isn’t one you want to hear in the bedroom. If you don’t last long, there’s nothing more cringeworthy than hearing a guy apologise. You’ll make it an issue and you’ll think about it next time. It’s one of those things; girls who say otherwise are being spiteful.'
DO… TAKE YOUR TIME'
Put it this way: when you walk into a restaurant, you don’t ask for the chocolate fudge brownie first. Chill out. Have your starter, enjoy the main and then go in for dessert. If you rush things in the bedroom, it will get tense and end too quickly. Thinking ahead, set your clock 10 minutes slower, so she’ll be pleasantly surprised!'
DON’T… GET TOO FREAKY
'It’s good for you to know your way about, but remember – sex isn’t a biology lesson. If you act like Mr Know It All, she’ll think you’ve been with loads of women and that can be off-putting. You want a happy medium between novice and complete man-whore.'
DO... HAVE FUN'
Sex is supposed to be fun, so why stack a load of pressure on yourself? Embarrassing things still happen when you’ve been with someone for a while, so if you do make an error the best thing to do is laugh it off andgo again. Don’t take it too seriously. Sex isn’t an exam.'
DON’T... TALK THE TALK
'If you’re with someone you’ve only just met, I wouldn’t suggest barking orders. Dirty talk can add some spice, but it is a personal thing and it can freak us out. Don’t learn the words from your favourite porno and recite them to her, either. I doubt she’d be impressed.'
DO… FOREPLAY FOR REAL
'If you make a play for the erogenous zones, do it right. We don’t want to feel like a moth has brushed its wing past the inside of our leg. And remember boobs are attached to our body. You can grab, but just be tender.'
DON’T…ASSUME THE POSITION
'She won’t be surprised if you want certain ‘things’, so if she’s up for it, then she’ll crack on. Just don’t be too blunt about it. The first rule of sex is to expect nothing and that way you can’t be disappointed. Plus, if she’s giving, make sure she gets to receive, too – and not just on Valentine’s Day!'
LINGERIE NAME: KISSING CLEAVAGE
Ann Summers says: 'Its modern styling makes this classic Valentine’s look ideal for the confident and stylish woman who oozes sex appeal. Plus, it’s an instant boob job in a bra, giving natural enhancement.'
Buy for your lady if… she’s ever suggested using a camera in the bedroom.
