If this year has taught us anything, it’s to enjoy the simple pleasures. A good cup of coffee. A great meme (many thanks to @djfattony). An inordinately lovely tree. To be honest, we’re impressed at your levels of restraint if you’ve managed to not dedicate at least 80% of your Instagram feed space to one or more of the above.
So, yeah, 2020 has been the year of finding joy wherever possible, when serotonin is likely to have taken a sabbatical. The fashion antidote? Christopher Kane’s More Joy collection for AW20 is the epitome of dopamine dressing / home treasures (think ‘Sex’-emblazoned slip dresses to titillating coasters, wrapping paper and tape).
Next up: art with a little more sex than sensibility. A chic new coffee table book, Andy Warhol. Love, Sex, and Desire: Drawings 1950–1962, is full of risqué renderings. As is Erica Jong’s sensational classic Fear of Flying.
Still searching for more sexy Christmas gift ideas, for either yourself, friend or partner? GOOP-approved self-pleasure tools and a subscription to audio erotica platform Dipsea is worth considering, too. For (free) aural pleasure - we’ve also curated a very special mixtape.
