    hot-summer-nights-blog

    We're freewheeling it down to the hottest summer months here, and though the sun may not be particularly forthcoming, the heat certainly is.

    But with the nights as humid as they have been lately, it's not always that easy to get in the mood come bedtime.

    If you're anything like me, the evenings are more an experimentation to see which combination of arms and legs flung outside the duvet keeps you coolest, rather than which combination of entwined limbs is most erotic.

    Luckily, though, there are ways to raise the raunch factor without raising the temperature. We've put together a hand-selected collection of summer-friendly toys, lingerie, and bondage gear to keep you looking and feeling your sexiest through the summer months.

    So whether you're getting steamy in Southampton, sizzling in Swansea, or fiery in Fife, just read on to see our sultry summer treats.

    Health Benefits of Masturbation

    Today kicks off the start of Men's Health Week: seven whole days devoted to raising awareness of male health issues around the world.

    But, guys, you'll be pleased to know it's not all about wheatgrass shots and multivitamins. There's a much more enjoyable way to improve your wellbeing:

    Get masturbating.

    Bashing the bishop, five-knuckle shuffle, beating the meat - however you like to refer to it, masturbation has been proven time and again to have many health benefits that go far beyond a way to fill time between episodes of Game of Thrones.

    Chances are, you won't need much persuading, but if you're looking to justify that jerk-off session, just read on for six awesome perks to pole-polishing you may not have considered before.

    Vixen Mustang VixSkin Bright Realistic Dildo

    Here we are heading into the steamy summer, and we've got another glut of your scorching hot reviews to pore over.

    "This vibrator actually blew me across the bed. Seriously. I went from one corner to the opposite. Yes, you did read the first line correctly. This toy actually made my body leap across the bed. We just so happen to have been recording ourselves, so we actually have video evidence of this, which was really hot to rewatch together (but more on that another time).”  Read the full review here.

    Well done A Couple of Kinks! We hope you enjoy your prize. Want to win too? Write your own review now to be in with a chance next month.

    Super Victor Euro 2016 mascot

    On the eve of the Euro 2016 football tournament, it transpires that UEFA bigwigs have scored a highly amusing own goal by giving the tournament mascot the same name as a 17 inch, 5.5 kilo beast of a sex toy.

    Euro 2016 mascot Super Victor is a cheeky little chappy who'll no doubt be seen waving and gurning his way around the pitch during this evening's opening ceremony at the Stade de France in Paris.

    The Super Victor Giant Black Dildo stands taller than 4 soft drink cans stacked one on top of the other and makes an ideal doorstop when you're not trying to stuff it up your bum.

    Sadly for football fans looking for that post-match full-up feeling, we no longer stock the Super Victor, but you can still find out all about its impressive stats after the jump, and there's plenty more on our website to help you put the 'Ohhhhhh!' in the Euros...

    Lovehoney Desire Clitoral Vibrator

    When you think of Good Housekeeping magazine, you're probably met with images of recipe ideas, vacuum cleaner product reviews and articles about how to get your soufflé to rise just right.

    What you might not associate with this straight-laced publication is their totally-filthy, annual Tried and Tested survey to find the best sex toys on the market.

    Well now you know, and guess what? We came out on top (this is our favourite position FYI).

    The Lovehoney Desire Clitoral Vibrator was voted numero uno out of 25 vibes put to the test by a panel of 270 women. It got an overall score of 74/100 and hit the spot with nine out of 10 women.

    In fact, Lovehoney vibes accounted for seven out of the 25 carefully-selected toys. Check out which ones made the cut and what the experts at Good Housekeeping had to say about them.

    BONUS! Buy one of these vibrators from Lovehoney today and enjoy a free lube (click the graphic below for more).

    Vixen Mustang VixSkin Bright Realistic Dildo

    It's time to announce our latest Review of the Month, and I'm pleased to say that the £100 gift voucher is going to a veritable Lovehoney veteran. Sex Squid uploaded their first sex toy review in 2006, meaning they've been a proud part of our community for a decade. We're impressed!

    Of course, we were also impressed by their wonderful review of the Vixen Mustang VixSkin Bright Realistic Dildo with Suction Cup 7 Inch, which includes a comparison to the Mustang Royale.

    "I'm sure I'm not alone in finding that this joyous dick makes me want to burst into song! It's just so happy-looking. And as with my other Vixen dildos, it feels simply incredible. The VixSkin dual density silicone is remarkable. It's squishier than a real cock, but I don't see that as a bad thing. In fact, riding it anally, or when worn in a harness for pegging, it's lovely squashiness makes it more comfortable for anal than any other toy I've tried. When thrust deep and hard, the head can bump against your insides without causing you any discomfort, which means there's no need for your partner to pause. A submissive's dream then!"  Read the full review here.

    Congratulations Sex Squid, and enjoy your prize. Want in? Write your review now to be in with a chance to win next.
