Sex and Satin Sheets

One of the most luxurious fabrics that can be used for your bed covers is satin and contrary to what many people think, satin is really not a specific fabric, but rather a specific type of fabric weave.   It is a weave that results in a glossy, smooth fabric that feels cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
