Sex

The most popular item on this Aussie lingerie online store is very unexpected

Hurts so good.

It's 2018, so everyone is definitely getting a little bit more vocal about their sexuality and preferences, but the kinkier side of things can often stay on the down-low.

In an effort to de-stigmatise the saucier side of sex, the ladies behind luxury Australian lingerie site Porte-à-Vie have spilled the beans on some of the best-selling items on their site and it's not just lacy undies and sexy bodysuits.

"Nipple clamps are one of the most popular items on our website," Elizabeth Roberts, content and marketing director at porteavie.com.

"We sell them daily. We offer beautiful diamante and pearl versions, so they're as nice to look at as they are to wear."

We'll be honest, this has brought a whole new meaning to the notion of ~clutching your pearls~.

For those unfamiliar with what a nipple clamp is or what it does, consider this your education.

"Nipple clamps are designed to fit directly on the nipples, the desired effect being to heighten sensation," the PAV ladies explain.

"Nipple clamps pinch the skin, creating a slightly painful feeling that the wearer can find both uncomfortable and pleasurable. When a nipple clamp is first applied there can be a strong sensation of pinching and pressure. However, once the clamp is removed, and blood rushes back to the nipple, there is a rush with a more intense, erotic sensation."

Noted. Here's a sample mental image for ya:
