This new site is about to change the way we think about sex shops

Even with sex shops (ok – Ann Summers) taking up their place on the majority of UK high streets, and the fact that everyone goes to Amsterdam, we’d probably be right in saying that there’s still something a bit, well, awkward about the purchasing of instruments to aid our sexual lives. That might be about to change, though – because last night sexual health charity FPA launched its new venture: an online shop stocked with toys, alongside advice covering everything from sexual health to broader relationship advice to how to get the most out of your sex toys. FPA Pleasure has been created to “break the taboo around sexual enjoyment” – for both men and women, and particularly after rape, abuse or childbirth. Essentially, it wants the UK to stop being prudish about what it wants in the bedroom – and to start talking about it without embarrassment. It comes from the fact that sex, and orgasms, are incredibly good for you – not just because of the physical exertion and endorphins released, but also in terms of the mental bond that they create with your partner. FPA Pleasure is aiming to attract both single people, and couples who want to step up their sex game.
