Best For Improved Intimacy
Coral founder Isharna Walsh says her experience of being sexually active but not necessarily educated about her sexuality and desire inspired her to create Coral. The app is full of practical exercises and short courses – subjects include ‘The Science of Sexual Response’, ‘How To Have And Help Others Have Orgasms’ and ‘Beliefs You May Have Grown Up With’. Each course takes around 20 minutes and is developed in partnership with sex counsellors and psychotherapists to feature interactive quizzes and personal audio stories. You’ll also find guided exercises for techniques like examining your own genitals and learning how to give good oral sex; as well as a discussion forum, where experts answer questions, and Pulse, a sex diary that allows you to track your progress.
Best For Dating

What follows is a series of audio guides, such as body mapping, which encourages you to self-touch and explore; audio erotica stories; guided practices to try out alone or with a partner; and more factual, podcast-style guides to the female anatomy. Whether you’re struggling with low libido, anxiety around sex, a lack of confidence or an inability to orgasm, Ferly will transform your sex life.
