FRESHEN UP YOUR KINKY KIT

IF you’re clinging to an old sex toy that didn’t manage to fire you up or still have those handcuffs that keep you shackled to bad memories with an ex, Alix reckons it’s time to get rid.

She says: “Were they the wrong shape? Too loud? Not powerful enough?

“Bear this in mind to help you choose replacements that deliver ‘Big Os’ instead of being big disappointments.”

Check expiry dates on products too.

Alix says: “Old condoms are more likely to break, while chemicals in some gone-off lubricants can cause itching, burning, allergies or even prompt a nasty infection.

“Chuck out anything that’s changed colour, texture or smell.”

When binning sex toys check whether your local authority has a Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) recycling scheme via RecycleNow.com.

SORT OUT YOUR THOUGHTS

“IN the same way that one black sock can turn a whole white wash a grubby grey, one dark thought about your partner can easily spoil an intimate night,” Alix says.

“If something minor yet aggravating is bugging you about your lover, have a calm conversation and agree a plan together to sort it out then draw a line under it.”

Alix says it’s also easy to cling on to tiny gripes and grumps, especially when you’re tired. She says: “It can be a shame to let these emotional “socks” unnecessarily colour what could have been a great date.

“To stop annoyances going round your head like a tumble drier, ask yourself, ‘Will I still be so upset about this tomorrow, or will I be more upset if I let it ruin tonight?’

“Try visualising yourself putting the ‘sock’ in a mental laundry hamper and shutting the lid.”

DEEP CLEANSE YOUR DIARY

“COUPLES complain that they don’t have enough time to connect, and that they’re too tired to get raunchy,” explains Alix. “Keep a log of what you’re doing throughout each day to identify ‘obstructions’ and ‘opportunities’.

“Obstructions are things that are getting in the way of sexual play – there might be some you can move or remove.

“Is that half-hour spent scrolling mindlessly through social media really better than cuddling with your partner? If you both pitched in to get a household chore done, it could help you feel less tired and more in the mood for sex.

“Opportunities are areas where you could add more enjoyment and intimacy. If the kids have sports practice, turn this time into a chance for a regular daytime date.

“Or try giving each other a massage while you watch this week’s episode of the TV series you love.”

STOP LUST GATHERING DUST

HAVING sex in exactly the same way every time can soon start to feel stale and monotonous for both partners.

Alix believes that spring is the ideal time to spruce things up.

She says: “Challenge yourselves to change just one small thing every time you make love for the next few weeks. If you keep the same position you could see what it’s like with clothes on or off, blindfolded, in a different room or staying quiet with the window open.

“Keeping your love life fresh doesn’t always demand intimidating, extreme adventures. Sometimes subtle shifts are enough to stop things getting rusty and dusty.”

SPRUCE UP YOUR SEX SPACE

MAKING small changes to bedroom interiors can do wonders for your libido.

Alix says: “Fit dimmable, colour-changing light bulbs to quickly change the atmosphere in your bedroom from sunny to sultry. Flattering low light can help you feel more confident about your body, plus if you can’t see crumbs on the carpet or cobwebs in corners, you’re less likely to be distracted.

“If working from home makes it impossible to keep business out of the bedroom, try draping a sheet over your desk.

“Setting an alarm to ‘shut up shop’ like this at the end of each day can help you to psychologically adjust your mindset from professional mode into off-duty – and get fruity.”

And if you’ve no room to store sexy underwear and toys Alix has a handy tip.

She advises: “Organise toys in hanging plastic pockets in your wardrobe, with a suit cover over the top to hide them from prying eyes.”

MUCK IN MICRO-DATES

“MICRO-DATES are mini moments of romance that can rev up a relationship more than you might imagine,” explains Alix.

“Think of them as courtship confetti to sprinkle into your days to keep things feeling passionate, wherever you can. Dance to ‘your song’ in your living room. Meet your partner at the bus stop and walk home together during the last leg of their commute, or shower together.”

Alix advises that scheduling intimacy is also key. She says: “Scheduling makes it a priority, and something to look forward to, rather than an afterthought that you try to cram in.

“Of course, nobody should feel forced to have sex when ‘Saucy Sunday’ rolls around if they don’t feel like it, but make the effort to keep that agreed time clear to dedicate to shared pleasure.”

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 42

In recent days, the Lensa app, a service that uses a neural network to create drawn portraits, has gone viral. To generate drawings, you have to upload 10 to 20 of your portrait photos to the app, from which the program will generate an avatar. But the app has proven easy to trick so that it creates soft porn.

Internet users say that if you upload topless photos to Lensa, the app disables the NSFW filter and generates nudes. 

In general, the idea of uploading your photos to a questionable app seems bad to many. The owners of the service assure that users’ photos are deleted after 24 hours, but it is impossible to check whether this is true. In addition, such services have repeatedly allowed leaks of users’ personal data.

The Lensa application is a SaaS product of Russian developers Prisma Labs. This is especially disturbing for the residents of Ukraine, where the application has also gone viral: Ukrainian journalists urge citizens not to give their personal data to Russians, because considering the work of Russian special services, no one can guarantee a sufficient level of security when using programs written by the enemy. To use Lensa, each user has to accept the rules – to agree to the training of the neural network in order for it to work more correctly. Photos go to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services cloud storage – and, according to the developers, are deleted from there in 24 hours after being processed in Lensa. 

Lensa’s creators assure that users remain anonymous. The app doesn’t specifically ask them for access to metadata such as geolocation. However, the metadata that identifies the user can be linked to the photo that the person uploads to the app. But the Lensa team promises that photos are cleared of metadata before they are saved to Lensa systems.For now, Lensa AI is available for private use, although it may well offer its services to corporations. To do so, they will need B2B SaaS marketing.
