Sex

Put the “o” in phone

Thought your phone did everything? Now it can give you an orgasm.

Your smartphone is 2012's answer to the Rabbit, and it's about to revolutionise how you have sex. From apps that show what to do with him naked, to online sex shops, this is the future of your love-life.

Your phone as a… sex coach

You've got your man, now what? How about free app Adult Truth or Dare, which asks questions such as, "What guy here would you most like to cover in honey and lick from head to toe?" and dares like, "Lose three items of clothing (shoes and socks don't count)."

"It's great to play with your man," says psychologist Manjit Ubhi. "It teases out stories you've never heard before, and builds sexual suspense." And since you can also add your own questions and dares, you can sneakily personalise it to get a massage.

But why stop there? "No matter how good you think you are in bed, you can always get better," says Ubhi. The free Android app Sex Tips For Women can teach you a thing or two, including reminders of what he needs in bed, like ego-boosting compliments.

Your phone as an… erotic read

Women take 20 minutes longer than men to get aroused. "The female mind gets more fired up reading a story and having to work to visualise the scene, than by passively watching porn," says Ubhi. So get a head start by reading a racy book before you hook up.

Literotica.com has thousands of free erotic stories. Pick whatever tickles your fancy, from first-time flings to sci-fi sex. At cliterati.co.uk real people post their own fantasies - you can even have a go at writing a few yourself.

"Start stoking the fire so you're perfectly in sync by the time you get home," says Ubhi. "Your libido is like a muscle that grows bigger when you flex it - so the more you think about sex, the more you'll want it."

Your phone as a… libido stoker

While you're teasing yourself with a few sexy scenarios, get him excited as well by sending saucy photos (but only if you're truly confident he won't do anything dodgy with them). Up the tension by taking photos of yourself at various stages of a striptease - then send them to him throughout the day to gradually drive him wild.

Your phone as a… pocket kamasutra
