It seems that the term “Geek Chic” has become ever more popular in 2012, and whilst the advent of the ‘hot nerd’ has been with us for a while now, the addition of fashion to match has us smiling. In our first gallery for what seems like ages, we take a quick look at the current trend of custom heels, sci-fi lingerie and gamer gear for the girl who wears her geek out and loud.

The Secrets to Sensational Foreplay teaches you toe-curling touch techniques, creative kissing and mouth moves that will drive your partner crazy, and sultry seduction skills that will stoke all of your senses for maximum responsiveness and pleasure.

You’ll learn how to take foreplay to the next level with sensual and daring activities that put you in the mood or build the excitement.

We loved the fun, soft layout filled with sexy images that are helpful to getting into the mood and realising some of the suggestions. It’s a lighthearted read that doesn’t put any more pressure on either partner. It’s already a big hit at MaXXX Black and is as helpful to beginners as it is for couples who’ve been playing together for a while now.

Ok, so we’ve seen field guides for birds, for trees, and even for bees, so maybe it’s about time there was a field guide to that most essential of human endeavours.

This is no serious tome of sexual education. Rather, it’s a fun and funny “encyclopedia” that shows how to identify the physical characteristics and bizarre seduction rituals of the creatures that are likely to be encountered during sexual forays. Hey, even members of the same species can have anatomical differences, right?

The Field Guide to F*CKING teaches you how to map out your partner’s primary erogenous zones and decode sexual signals based on body language, kissing, and touch techniques. Sex has attracted many adventurers in search of its oft-elusive pleasures. It’s all about having fun, but the information inside is no beat-up. Based on real research, and full of little tidbits that will have you giggling and learning at the same time, this is one book that you’ll have lots of fun reading.
