Sex and dating are never simple. And if these new sex trends are anything to go by, it’s getting more and more complicated out here. From pegging to gender fluidity to a lot more Shades of Grey, sex trends have changed a lot in the past few years. The more you know…
From sex trends and habits we used to keep in the closet to sex toys that are at the cutting edge of technology, there’s a lot of new ground to cover in 2016. For those of us who like to be up on all the trends, here’s what men, women and everyone in between might be getting into in a bedroom near you.
First, it was taboo, and then it was everywhere – even on TV (remember that one episode of Broad City?). Apparently men really are asking for it, like one man whose partner described every detail for the Internet.
Just the Tip
Have you heard about the Galactic Cap? They’re condoms that just cover the tip during sex to give him maximum feeling. But if he pulled out this itty bitty rubber would you be on board?
Today there is literally an app for everything. Wireless sex toys? Everywhere. You insert the toy and he controls the app (or vice versa) for sexual encounters – whether the two of you are together or apart.
Fergie, Keke Palmer, Miley Cyrus and millions of other folks have embraced gender and sexual fluidity and aren’t down to be labeled as simply one thing or another.
From that one episode of Girls to those famous lyrics from Omarion and Jhene Aiko’s Post to Be, if you aren’t into having your groceries eaten, you might be the only one at this point.
From sex scenes like MC J-Poppa and Becky’s rooftop hookup on Empire to #WeWearWhatWeWant, body positivity has taken on a whole new form. It’s encouraging us all to stop sucking it in, turn the lights on and love our bodies for what they are.
Today there’s even more reason to say “no” to a camera: exes posting videos on the Internet for revenge (and escaping prosecution).
Ever since Fifty Shades of Grey exploded on the scene, keeping quiet about kinks of all kinds is no longer a thing. Introducing sensation play or handcuffs on a first date? It just means you’re a fan of popular literature.
If you haven’t been in the dating game since Anthony Weiner was in office, get ready to prepare yourself. There seems to be no more shame in whipping it out, photographing it and sending it to someone who didn’t ask for it (because you’re only a few Tinder messages into your interactions).
We don’t know what brought on this impulse, but there are more people having sex outdoors than ever before. If you’re up for something frisky and risky, this is your time to leap out of your comfort zone.
