What can we say? Everyone is different. Every sexual relationship is different.

There is no one-size-fits-all for healthy sexual relationships but we hope that whoever you are and whatever floats your boat you can find information on this site that will help you and your partner(s) be happy and safe.

Do take your time to roam around and look for whatever interests you. If we’re not providing information you think you need, please let us know and we’ll try to find it for you.

Remember, these pages are for you and people like you but they’re for people who aren’t the slightest bit like you as well.

Some parts of these pages may not be your particular cup of tea.

Our aim is that every piece of information on this site will be of importance to someone in the Highlands.
