    Sex O'Clock

    Ever wondered why you and your partner want sex at different times? It's not just them being awkward, it's biology.

    According to our survey of 2,300 people, men and women's peak times for horniness occur 15 hours apart... Nightmare.

    A whopping 78% of men and 69% of women admitted they desire sex most at different times of the day to their partner.

    And what are these magical times that bring each of the sexes to life with lust? Well, if you're a man, it's all about the morning glory. Men prefer to wake and shake between 6am and 9am with 7.53am being the optimal time for horizontal refreshment. For women, it appears that nocturnal nooky is the favourite. The hours between 11pm and 2am are most popular for females with 11.21pm being the most moist minute.

    I guess it's true what they say: men are from Mars and women are from Venus and the two planets appear to operate in different timezones.

    Lucy Sparrow Felt Sex Shop

    It's not something you hear everyday, but felt craft just got a whole lot sexier.

    Introducing Madame Roxy's Erotic Emporium - the Soho sex shop made entirely of felt - brought to you by artist Lucy Sparrow.

    The art installation, which will be open to the public until 17th October, took six months to create and every single sex toy, condom and bondage item on the shelves (around 5,000 in total) was stitched by Lucy's nimble fingers.

    Queen of felt Lucy hopes that the erotic exhibit will challenge society's 'Victorian attitudes' towards sex, particularly the commercialisation of London's provocative Soho area.

    She explained: "While London's Soho undergoes sterilisation with strip clubs and sex shops being swept away in favour of trendy wine bars and hipster coffee shops, so Britain's laws on pornography are also being cleansed."

    Icicles No 24 Tentacle Glass Dildo 6 Inch

    Lovehoney Community member Shadow Collector is one very lucky lady. Not only did she receive a Secret Wishlist Present from an anonymous forum friend, but we've also chosen the review she wrote of it as our Review of the Month. The prize? £100 to spend at Lovehoney!

    We loved her in-depth review of the Icicles No 24 Tentacle Glass Dildo. She even pointed out features we hadn't noticed, like the perineum stimulation offered by the textured nubs:

    "The raised glass nodules provide the kind of feelings that, previous to this toy, I only have imagined existed. There is nothing that can compare to the cool, firm feel of glass. Furthermore, the handle’s shaped so that with every thrust it’ll also tickle the anus."  

    "To the amazing person who blessed me with the Icicles No. 24, thank you. You've changed my outlook on sex toys for the better, and it was already pretty darn positive. I love this piece and any texture aficionados will love it as well."

    Ooh by Je Joue It takes a lot to raise our eyebrows here at Lovehoney HQ.
