Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
Boredom in the bedroom and getting stuck in a sexual rut is the number one passion killer around the world.
So to spice things up, global dating app Jaumo conducted research using its 30 million users worldwide to determine the most popular practices and favourite intimate accessories for use between the sheets.
From snorkels for underwater pleasure to creating a personalised dildo based on your partner's penis, FEMAIL has looked at the wackiest trends of the year so far.
SEX TOYS THAT TALK DIRTY TO YOU
'Dirty talk' has always been a classic favourite for spicing things up between the sheets.
But for those fond of engaging in solo activity, this can prove tricky.
An American company recently released a new device which can play sentences and groaning acted out by pornography actresses to take the masturbation experience 'to the next level'.
This year's hot trend for interactive sex toys is growing increasingly popular among men in particular.

In recent years, health and well being have become the central focus of pop culture around the world.
Part of this trend has been the development of fitness trackers to chart your athletic progress.
A new curated tracker has set pulses in the sex industry racing – it's designed specifically for your vagina.
The device known as the Perifit comes with attached 'love balls' to strengthen the muscles of your pelvic floor.
Users can even track developments with an accompanying app.
The result? Enhanced sexual performance and higher-intensity orgasms.

AN ORAL SEX SNORKEL FOR WATER SEX
The record heatwave of 2018 brought with it a trend for cooling down by having sex underwater.
The Snorkel O, a snorkel specifically designed for giving your partner oral sex beneath the waves, has emerged as one of the hottest intimate accessories of the year.
GENDER-NEUTRAL SEX TOYS
Gender-neutral is a buzz word that looks set to stay at the focus of current affairs for years to come.
So it was only a matter of time before sex toys finally became gender neutral, too.
These toys combine traditional male and female devices (e.g. a vibrator, G-spot stimulator and penis ring) all in one, making them ideal for partners of every gender to use simultaneously.
Jaumo believe this innovation not only injects added 'umph' to the bedroom, but also indicates a freer and more open attitude towards sex in general.
Hot and steamy essentials for 2018 include the Snorkel O (left), an underwater device to enable oral sex beneath the waves, and gender-neutral sex toys like the Transformer by PicoBong (right) which combines traditional devices like the vibrator, G-spot stimulator and penis ring all in one
GETTING A DILDO IN THE SHAPE OF YOUR PARTNER'S PENIS
One of the stranger trends emerging from 2018 is the growing number of long distance couples creating a dildo of their partner's penis.
This is usually achieved by using a 3D printer or a DIY kit at home.
According to Jaumo, the latter option is the simplest and most cost-effective method for couples around the world.
Those concerned with precision can even select their favourite colour for the penis duplicate.
This year, the intimate grooming industry has taken things a step further with women now requesting their favourite alcoholic drink like champagne flutes and Cosmopolitans to be shaved into their private parts
SHAVING YOUR FAVOURITE DRINK ONTO YOUR BIKINI AREA
We're all familiar with historical hairstyles which have captured the public imagination: the Jennifer (Friends era Jennifer Aniston), the Sienna (bohemian chic Sienna Miller) and the Mossy (famous chop a la supermodel Kate Moss).
In a similar vein, the most enduring styles for your nether region include the Brazilian and the Hollywood.
But this year, the intimate grooming industry has taken things a step further with women now requesting their favourite alcoholic drink to be shaved into their private parts.
Fizz lovers can opt for a champagne flute, which involves a thin strip along the lip area intended to resemble the stem of the glass, with the glass represented by an additional soft shaped strip above.
Other popular alternatives include Cosmopolitan receptacles, beer jugs or shot glasses.
