  • Love is in the air? Be a sexy Valentine!

    Ok, so it's here and they say 'love is in the air', but I don't get it - maybe I'm just not breathing right ;)

    Actually I love Valentine's Day - it might be cheesy, but it does remind us that you can never tell those you love, that you love them, too often.

    While the real truth behind the day remains somewhat of a mystery, the reality is you can make it what you want! During my single days my girlfriend and I used to go out for a fabulous champagne dinner and just celebrate loving life!

    Rather than flowers (which will die) or chocolates (think of those unwanted kgs!), this year do something sexy and energetic with your lover - and I'm not talking a run around the park!

    How about surprising him / her with a candlelit room, you in sexy lingerie and some special love toys to make the evening filled with fun and a bit of fantasy... my favourite sensuality product is the massage candle. It melts to just over body temperature to a soy based oil - you get an erotic massage and your partner gets to live out their 'hot oil fantasy'. That's a win-win situation!

    What ever you do on this day of love, even if it's just cuddling your loved one in front of a favourite movie, take time to remember how grand love is and how lucky you are to be in love...maybe it is in the air after all.

  • Plus size lingerie can make you feel Fifty Shades Freed

    As we head towards Valentine's Day the question being asked by all (good) men and, also women, everywhere is 'should I buy lingerie for my lover?' (well,it might not be THE question on everyone's mind, but we think it should be!).

    The simple answer is YES - no matter what shape or size you are, the reality is that lingerie makes you feel sexy. Someone once told me that the best way to see if you like an item of lingerie is to throw it on the floor, 'because that's where it will end up two seconds after you put it on!'.

    Of course the real challenge is to find lingerie that YOU feel good in. There is nothing worse that pouring your body into a little lacy knicker and bra set only to feel incredibly awkward. Unfortunately we can't all be Anastasia in Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker or even Fifty Shades Freed!

    So, what should you look for, here are a few tips:

    • Start with the style of lingerie you find most attractive - bra and knicker sets, corset, gstring, babydoll, etc
    • Then work out what style you think suits your body shape best - something with more support, an outfit to show off your legs but hid your tummy, etc
    • Think about the colours you like
    • Then use that as your search criteria - otherwise it is just too overwhelming with the number of choices!

    Even if lingerie is not your thing normally, why not indulge in something different for your lover ... you might quite like the outcome.

  • New year, new love!

    As we all welcome the new year, I know that some people meet it with trepidation and some with a renewed passion and excitement for the year ahead. Wherever your life is at, I hope that you challenge yourself this year, at the very least, to renew your 'love'.

    I don't mean, run out and find a new lover, I simply mean renew the love of yourself and those around you. Remember you are the absolute one continuum in your life and you need to love yourself first, so you can give more love to others.

    Your friends and family are precious, life is precious and you are spectacular.

    Wishing you love and happiness for a sparkling, passionate 2018.


  • Santa Baby....

    This time of the year can be an interesting time for your love life - if you're single it can be amazing! Lots of happy, merry people feeling festive can really drive some serious hormones!

    If you're in a relationship and have kids - it can be exhausting!There is so much going on with end of school, work, family, social activities, xmas shopping, the list goes on. Of course the first thing that tends to go off the list is sex!

    Make sure you take some time out this festive season to share some love and laughter with your partner. Get out the mistletoe, put it under a doorway and surprise them with a passionate kiss. Reconnect with love this festive season.

  • Is a sexual 'hall pass' good for a relationship?

    There has been some discussion lately around people offering partners 'hall passes' - essentially the chance to have a sexual fling with someone,  without consequences. But is this good for a relationship, or ultimately harmful?

    The reality is that no matter how casual the immediate lustful attraction, sex can often develop into an emotional bond. Not necessarily from both partners, but it only takes one partner to  want to continue with the relationship and it can threaten the original couple.

    Of course everyone is different and some people can genuinely have a sexcapade without their partner discovering it, and be ok with it. But not everyone can handle it. Guilt can just as easily destroy a good relationship as the affair itself.

    The challenge can become insurmountable if both parties are not on the same page - the mere suggestion causing a breakdown in the relationship. And what if only one partner decides to take up the hall pass and the other doesn't? These issues need to be addressed or it can turn into a terrible situation before it starts.

    The key thing is to communicate and work out why you want the hall pass in the first place - be honest, is it really because you think it will rekindle what you've lost, or is it because you're lost?


  • Is it time to check on your Sexual Health?

    This week is Women's Health Week - a good time to take stock and focus on the health needs of yourself as a woman. Of course one import health need is our sexual health needs.

    Low sexual drive is a common problem for many women, which can leave women feeling stressed and cause issues with relationships. This can be particularly prevalent in women pre and post-menopausal. Sadly many women don't seek help or treatment for this issue and just suffer the consequences as they don't think it is treatable.

    The good news is that many causes may be treatable, so it's important to speak to a caring health professional to get advice.

  • A note to the men out there - here's what we really want!

    One of the most important aspects of any relationship is communication - yes, it might not sound sexy, but it can make a big difference to how you relate to one another and if you are relating well, then the sensual side will follow.

    Sadly there is often a disconnect between what men think we want, and what we really want. So, this is a quick note to all the men out there, a reminder if you will, on the things that will make us fall deeper in love with you!

    1. Be a great listener - show us you're really listening, not just pretending. We want to engage you in our lives.
    2. Surprise us - we love little (and big) happy surprises. The odd bunch of flowers or dinner date goes a long way (Tiffany works even better :) )
    3. Talk to us - show us some vulnerability. We want you to learn to express how you are feeling, honestly and openly.
    4. Compromise - sure, this goes both ways. We know you don't like to go shopping, sit around and chat with the girls or watch our movies, but every now and then, come along and be with us.
    5. Kiss and caress us - being loving and affectionate randomly goes along way. We love it when you give us a random cuddle, kiss or reach out to hold our hand. It makes us feel loved and connected, and you never know where that might lead!

    Here's to love.

  • Pregnancy Sex

    For those of you who, like me, had to dedicate time every month to 'baby making sex' you'll know it's not usually the most romantic of sexual experiences with your partner. The pressure to perform on cue to deliver a specific result may be what it is designed for in the procreation of the species type of role, but not in the more desired 'let's make hot, passionate love' experience.

    So once you're pregnant, what happens then? You usually find out your pregnant within 5-8 weeks, which means you have a good eight months of baby growing. So how do you approach your sex life then?

    Of course every women is different. Every woman will have different desires and physical effects as a result of the pregnancy. In the early stages, when you don't look pregnant you will generally feel differently to when you are obviously protruding. Logistics aside, many women feel anxious about whether it is safe to have sex during pregnancy.

    The good news is that it's actually quite beneficial to have sex during pregnancy. Other than keeping the connection with your partner and releasing all those amazing feel good endorphins, it also helps to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.

    Of course there are lots of physical and mental changes going on during pregnancy, so you may feel different and experience different sensations than you normally do. Changing your normal routine to suit your changing needs is a great idea - make sure you share how you are feeling and what you desire with your partner. Communication goes a long way.

    As the baby grows you'll need to rethink sexual positions. Missionary is not a good idea as it puts pressure on heart, lungs and baby. The good news is that there are lots of other positions that will ensure your comfort.

    We always suggest you use body safe lubricants, but during pregnancy it is especially important that you check the product you are using. Check the ingredients and make sure it is safe for use during this time.

    If in doubt, ask your doctor for advice. Don't be embarrassed, remember they do know how you got pregnant in the first pace.

    Yours with PASHion, Jo XOXO

  • Nokia Nookie

    I just read an article about women in India using their old Nokia phones as vibrators! Apparently the vibrations on these old phones is strong and a great way to get them off! While it's bizarre what some women will resort to, with toys going for less than $50, we would advise you to invest in a nice silicone toy that is specifically designed for pleasure!

  • Pinkbox

    I've just read a post from an amazing lady who has created a company that supplies free sanitary products for girls and women who can't afford to purchase it. Every month we treat our periods as an inconvenience, but, for most of us, thankfully we don't have to worry about not being able to get the products we need. Clearly that isn't the case for everyone and this is a great initiative for those girls and women that need the help and support.

    We've donated and hope that this initiative is supported and respected and not abused by people.


    "Boys laugh at me when blood stained my uniform and eventually I just stayed home when I got my period" this is the story for many girls in Australia who's family simply cannot afford pads and tampons.

    So when I say today this FREE Dignity Vending #pinkbox machine is being installed in a school in Australia on Monday in Melbourne, I can't tell you how proud we are. So proud that we were all able to make a real difference to girls and women in need.

    When hearing that girls like 14 year old Sophie who stayed home from school last week because her mum couldn't afford to pay for sanitary items when Sophie got her period a few days behind her payday, makes us so grateful that we are now able to help.

    The idea of this being an issue for teenage girls when things are already tough enough just makes me mad.

    We now need to stock this machine and the other 20 machines which are all rolling out across Australia in the next few weeks. Each #periodpack costs $2.50 and if everyone on this page just donated one box could you imagine what we could do!! #dignityforgirls
