• Oh for God’s sake! I’m writing my Closer Magazine column for the week and answering a question about age-gap relationships.

    The person wants to know if I honestly think age-gap relationships work - she’s contemplating seeing a guy who’s 17-years older/younger (she doesn’t say which). “Is there any hope of it working out?” she asks...

    Question:

    I’ve recently started a relationship with a woman who is younger than myself, she's 23, I'm 37. My partner is shaved, which I enjoy, however, it wasn't something I requested, she's always shaved. We've started watching the odd porn film together, and she commented how she would like me to shave also, like the porn guys, which is totally bald, sack ‘n’ crack, the whole lot. I'm not entirely comfortable with the idea myself and have so far resisted. My partner, in protest has stopped shaving. As she was already shaved when we first met I think she is being unreasonable, tensions have resulted from the whole situation. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Today is Valentine’s Day - otherwise known as National Single Awareness Day. Just the right time to remind any singles out there (I’m one this year!) that while being single might suck (just a little) on Valentine’s Day, it’s not all bad!

    Sex Advice: His Top 6 Sex Sins

    1. Rushing into it.

    A few pathetic fumbles to check if she’s wet does not make her ready for you to plunge on in.

    Unless you’re both fired up for a quickie, keep that penis away until you’ve paid some lip service and at least inserted some fingers to check she’s lubricated and ready for you...

    Dare to do the clichés: Like chocolate body paint poured on and licked off. The reason why they’re clichés is because they’re often what people want to do, but are too scared to.

    Start a ‘sex jar’: Each write down 10 things you’d like to try. Rip into separate points, fold and put all of them into a jar. Pick out one a week to try. (Insist on pre-approval if you think ‘lure the hot 18-year-old next door in for a threesome’ will simply be repeated by your partner.)

    Ready to shake up your sex life? From romantic to raunchy, comfortable to challenging, a new sex position is a great way to have a healthier, happier sex life with minimum effort on your part.

    Sex Advice: 7 Steps To Giving Him Great Oral

    1. You need access to his testicles, anus and perineum as well as to be able to grasp the base of the penis and slide the other hand up and over. In other words, you need room.

    Also make sure you’re not at an angle where your hand’s going to end up in a weird position and get twisted or cramped...

    Sex Advice: 6 Tips For Giving Her Sensational Oral Sex

    1. Use the flat of your tongue, not the tip of it when you go down on her. Use the tip and your tongue will be knackered out in about five minutes.

    It feels too hard on her end (especially at the start) and if you flatten out your tongue as much as possible, it covers a bigger area and feels deliciously soft and squishy.

    Question:

    I'm becoming more concerned about an issue I have that seems to have worsened over the past two years. In short, I'm completely out of practice when it comes to initiating sex. I've been with my partner for 6 years and although sex has always been infrequent it was never an issue. I have no problem trying my luck after a night out but my girlfriend refuses because she says sex when she’s slightly tipsy makes her feel dirty. Unfortunately, when sober, we go to bed reading books.

    I know the answer is to express myself and explain I’m not happy but how do you start that kind of conversation? I still love her and still find her extremely attractive but right now I feel wrong and dirty for wanting to touch and kiss her.
