Let 2018 become the year when women finally achieve the right to orgasm as often as men! Oh and while we’re at it, we should Repeal the 8th! In a Hot For 2018 special, our sex columnist also discusses the impact of tech on our sex lives…
The new year is a strange time. It’s cold and miserable and almost everyone is broke – and yet, January holds an alluring promise that this year might just be be better than the last one.

Yet I doubt anyone would have foreseen that 2017 was the year that the world was going to sit up and take notice.
