Dear Angela,

With our 25th wedding anniversary just around the corner, my husband and I decided to spice up our sex life. All attempts we made in the past fizzled out after a few days, but this time, we're determined to go through with it.

We had a few chats already: we'd love to try some kinky positions, and we'd like to experiment with sex toys. That's as far as we got.

I mean, we really want to try new positions, but we don't know any. I don't know any sex toys, apart from vibrators, and if my husband knows any other toys, he's too shy to admit it. We could probably check all this out on the internet, but we don't have broadband.

How can we make our resolution work if we don't even know where to start?

ANGELA SAYS: The best starting point for a successful spice-it-up campaign is a post-lockdown erotic shopping tour. Choose a well-stocked book shop as your first stop; check out the Adult, Health and Lifestyle sections until you come across a nice, illustrated sex book.

Your second stop is a lingerie shop: pick a couple of sexy outfits for yourself. For best effects, choose a classy and a saucy one. Move on to buy new underwear for him.

Your next stop is an adult shop. Have a good look around to check out what's on offer.

When you're finally back home, share a relaxing bath, dress up in your new outfits, get comfy and study your sex book together.
