    By Carolyn Kylstra

    Make It Pop
    When you're giving him oral, slowly slide your mouth all the way down to the base of his penis (use your hand as a mouth extension if you need some assistance). Then, make a vacuum suction with your mouth as you slowwwwly drag yourself back up. Once you get to the head of his penis, release it from your mouth with a popping noise. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat...

    Press the Million-Dollar Point
    His perineum (the spot between his balls and butt) is packed with nerves-and if you press on it, you'll give him waves of pleasure. Ride him in reverse cowgirl, so he gets the great visual of your booty and you get to keep an eye on his boys. Watch for his testicles to begin to rise-a sign that he's about to climax-then lick your fingers and press on

  • 8 Double-Date Ideas You Have to Try

    The more the merrier!The more the merrier!If you and your man have new couple friends that you're crushing on, you'll obviously want to make cool plans with them. Sure, not everyone can cruise Lake Como like George Clooney, Channing Tatum, and their women recently did, but these inexpensive expert double-date ideas are pretty damn awesome, too.

    By Korin Miller

    Go on a Food Crawl
    Pick a spot in your neighborhood or someplace nearby that has a ton of restaurants (little, less trendy ones are the best). Start at one end of the area and work your way to the other, splitting apps, entrees, and desserts along the way.

    Take Them Tubing
    Hit up your local body of water for lazy river tubing. Most places will rent you a tube per person for a small fee, plus a cooler that you can pack with beer and food, and drop you at the top of a river. You and your couple friends can slowly float downstream while enjoying cold ones in a gorgeous setting.

    Hit Up an Amusement Park

    Drink Up
    It's a myth that guzzling lots of water makes you bloated. In fact, not hydrating often enough causes you to retain water underneath the skin's surface, giving you a puffy look. For the next 72 hours, cut out diuretics like caffeine and alcohol and sip six to eight glasses of H2O a day. Not only will you appear slimmer, you'll seem more toned, because your body will create a reserve of water below your muscles, pressing them out and adding definition.

    Be Strategic With Accessories
    - Slip on wedges instead of flip-flops. They'll optically slenderize and stretch your gams.

    - Wear a drop necklace to bring people's focus to your cleavage.

    - Pick the most flattering coverup for your shape: a short caftan if you have sexy

  • Dirty Talk Your Man Will Love

    Let him know you want him now.Let him know you want him now.Arousal isn't only about touch-according to experts, the sexy phrases you whisper, moan, or scream trigger a neurochemical reaction that gets him hotter for you than ever. Yup, this dirty talk should do the trick.

    By Molly Triffin

    "What do you want me to do to you?"
    Asking him what he needs from you proves you're open to changing things up. Also, if you're talking dirty for the first time with your guy, this phrase is a good way to ease into conversation and gauge how naughty he's ready to get.

    "You're an amazing kisser."
    Not only will this deepen intimacy during foreplay, but since guys are performance-oriented, positive feedback emboldens him, heightening his arousal.

    "Your arms are so sexy."
    Unlike women, guys don't often receive physical compliments, so telling him what you love about his bod is a powerful ego boost-and aphrodisiac.

And according to a new Trojan survey, 34 percent of women wish their sex sessions lasted longer. Want your guy to go all night? These expert tips should up his stamina.

    By Korin Miller

    Have Him Breathe Deeply
    Get your man to do breathing exercises before you get it on, taking slow, deep breaths for five minutes to help him relax. This will help to lower his arousal arc and help him last longer. The best way to approach it: During foreplay face each other and "share" breaths (he breathes in; you breathe out). He should follow your lead.

    Get Your O Early
    Since penetration usually speeds things up for him, have your man bring you to orgasm during foreplay to put you both in a relaxed state and up the odds you'll finish together. Plus, once you O, it's easier for you to do it again.

    Get Him Off Beforehand
    Manually stimulate your man or give him oral until he orgasms before you get

  • 7 Ways to Take a Hot Picture of Yourself

    Ready for your close-up?Ready for your close-up?Lately, we've noticed a ton of celebs posting photos that they've taken of themselves on Twitter. And they all look hot as hell. But shooting a pic of yourself isn't easy. Fashion and lifestyle photographer Alexa Miller shares her tips on how to ace it.

    By Korin Miller

    Shoot From the Shoulder
    Whether you're using your camera or smartphone, you don't want to have it in the frame. Instead, hold it away from you at shoulder level and twist your body toward it, pushing your opposite shoulder toward the camera. Then crop your other arm out of the pic.

    Follow the Rule of Thirds
    This is a little photography secret that most professionals use. Start by mentally dividing the frame into thirds. Instead of being in the middle of a picture, put yourself off-center, so that you either fall in the first ⅓ or ⅔s of the frame. It makes the shot look more interesting.

    Get Other Stuff Into the Shot
    On a gorgeous beach? Get the water behind you. At a cool concert? Shoot the stage in the background.

    Catch Magic Mike as a matinee. Watching hot, shirtless men for a few hours will keep your libido pumpes long after the credits roll.

    Make a playlist of your favorite sex songs-we love Lemme See by Usher and Tonight by John Legend-and put it on shuffle for your morning commute. It'll trigger your naughtiest memories and put a sexy smirk on your face.

    Get a blow-out...on a random Tuesday. The instant confidence that comes with bouncy, bombshell hair is a huge turn-on.

    Flaunt your assets-even at work. It's pretty much impossible to slouch in heels and a pencil skirt, and standing taller will translate to head-turning smokeshow status.
