    Lovehoney Second Birthday

    It seems barely any time at all since we tentatively launched the first collection of our very own lingerie, yet today marks TWO YEARS since the birth of Lovehoney Lingerie!

    From our humble starter selection of bodystockings, knickers, and stockings (which are still regularly amongst our bestsellers), through 12 amazing collections as well as mini dresses, nipple tassels, and a pearl thong or two, Lovehoney Lingerie has emerged as a firm fave with new and returning customers alike.

    And, with the launch of our biggest ever range, Seduce Me, plus lots of exciting new plans coming up, it looks set to blossom even more over the coming months.

    So we've picked out some of our highlights from the past twenty-four months to mark this auspicious occasions.

    Happy birthday, Lovehoney Lingerie, and here's to many more lace-filled years!


    Lovehoney has collaborated with the up-and-coming Will Ablett in a new set of photographs entitled Domesticated Sex Toys, after the talented photographer was inspired by the global success of their Fifty Shades of Grey pleasure products.

    For the photographs, Lovehoney's best-selling sex toys were placed in domestic settings, in a subtle and original set of images that would not look out of place in a high-end, glossy magazine.

    Will's unique collection of photographs has earned him a place as a finalist in the TRAJECTORY Graduate showcase, taking place at theprintspace Gallery between 20 Oct – 2 November 2016. The highly competitive competition is to find the most talented photography graduates in the UK.

    Good luck Will. We're rooting for you here at Lovehoney HQ!

    LH Halloween Rabbit Ears

    With Halloween sneaking up on us fast, many of us across the world are turning our thoughts to which mind-blowing costume we should be donning for the big night.

    But, even if you don’t dress up as a sexy traffic warden or a slutty bag of Skittles, there’s a chance that your simple ghost outfit or creepy clown make-up could be causing a stir for someone.

    Sexual fetishes and fantasies come in all different forms, so it comes as little surprise that if you’ve ever had an X-rated daydream about a good-looking Georgian ghost, or a frolic with Frankenstein’s monster, you’re definitely not alone.

    So, if white sheets make you moan, or detailed zombie make-up brings on a very localised case of rigor mortis, read on to learn more about five particular proclivities that thrive at Halloween...

    Being in a long distance relationship is no picnic, and I speak from experience.

    I lived twenty-four hours away from my boyfriend for a year, so we hardly ever got to have picnics, let alone have mind-blowing sex with each other.

    I have to say, one of the great things about long-distance relationships is that you both get really good at communication; however, long distances couples do tend to get sick of mac-n-cheese masturbation pretty quickly.

    (For those of you who haven't heard the term before, The Dicktionary defines mac-n-cheese masturbation as, "Masturbation that is standard, unsurprising, and requires the minimum amount of effort. Just like a bowl of macaroni and cheese".)

    So, here are my sex game suggestions for long distance couples. Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favour!

    The number of people I've known who either have never heard of an open relationship, or who are extremely sceptical of them and what they entail, is astonishing.

    Essentially, an open relationship is one where one or both parties are allowed to be physically (or emotionally, or both) involved with other people outside the relationship.

    Being currently in one myself, I understand how after being taught your whole life that monogamy is the only way forward, wanting a relationship set-up a little outside the norm can be daunting and hard to admit to.

    Even once you have decided that this is the path you wish to go down, actually getting on and doing it can be hard to navigate at first.

    As such, I have come up with a list of Do’s and Don’ts for hopefully helping to make an open relationship work, whether you are already in one yourself, or trying to work out how the heck to even get started...

    If your housemates are so chilled that they won't raise their eyebrows if you close yourself for an hour in your bedroom with that sexy guy you just met, well, you're super lucky.

    For some of us, things just aren't that easy.

    No matter how friendly your housemates are, sometimes living with them just makes it impossible to have sex in your bedroom. Would you truly want to be heard by your friends while you moan and scream of pleasure?

    So, sometimes, we are forced to be a little creative: we need to explore other places for intimacy instead of the old plain bedroom and create new scenarios to fulfill our desires.

    I'm not saying you must limit yourself to the classic bathroom quickie: it can be exciting, as we all know, but sometimes it may be difficult to 'get to the point' in such a short time.

    This is where super-discreet sex toys that you can wear out and about come into play...

    I love trying new things sexually. Love it.

    There’s no denying the thrill of a first time in any sexual activity, and not just the quintessential ‘First Time’.

    There is nothing wrong with a bit of experimentation, be it a tweak on something you already do, or an extreme step if you are the more adventurous type.

    Since I have dabbled in various experiences sexually - some just once, some which have become a favourite thing of mine - I thought I’d share with you the four things I view as being fun, accessible for all experiences.

    Uni is the perfect time to experiment and find out even more about what you enjoy in (and out) of the bedroom, so make the most of this period of excitement and freedom!

    Hopefully you’ll be brave enough to give one of them a go, no matter your relationship status.
