Let's talk about sex, baby. In the LGBT community, we spend a lot of time talking about sex. Is queer sex better than straight sex? Do gay men or lesbians have better sex? What does it mean to be in a romantic relationship as an asexual person? More and more we're talking about having, not just better sex, but healthier, safer sex. In all, it's pretty damn rad.
 
When we talk about sex, we talk about how it can be better. Because every orgasm can be better, right? True or not, why not try?
 
One secret to better sex that remains somewhat hush-hush, especially in the LGBT community, is the handy dandy sock trick. You heard that right: socks may be the key to your missing (or simply less than satisfactory) orgasm.
 
A study from nearly a decade ago (like, really, how did we miss this?!) found that one major hack to better sex is a pair of socks. Why? Toasty toes lead to more comfort, and comfort leads to orgasms.
 
Seems like cold feet can hurt your relationship (or your hookup) in more ways  than one.
 
Though the study focused on heterosexual couples, cold feet are cold feet. No matter where you fall on the LGBT spectrum, if you're into sexual relationships you'll have better sex if you keep a pair of socks in your bedside drawer along with your safer sex supplies, lube, and those classy fuzzy pink handcuffs.
 
You'll feel warm and cozy in more ways than one, and you'll knock your partner(s) socks off - literally.
