Oh yes, we went there. And with good reason. Brilliant new, sex-positive app, Ferly, is here to help women feel more empowered about their sexuality. Think guided meditation practices to help with self-pleasure; sensual stories to get you in the mood; and episodes on everything from setting sexual boundaries, to challenging insecurities. (Free on iPhone; Android to follow soon). And while we’re on the topic, we’ve got the answers to those Sexual Health Questions You’re Too Embarrassed To Ask and a pick of sex toys, if you fancy experimenting.

Added value alert: there’s a hot vicar to (vicariously) drool over, too. Even if you’re not a parent, this’ll make you LOL.
