Could Your Smartphone Be More Addictive Than Sex? Plus, Win a Lovehoney Flash USB Vibrator!
70% of British people have one, nearly one in ten have used it during sex and 80% say they leave it on all the time. No, I'm not talking about vibrators - I'm talking about smartphones!
Because we're constantly connected, it's no surprise that our expectations for sex toys have changed over the years.
Gone are the days of battery-operated jelly dildos - now everyone wants their toys to be high tech, stylish and rechargeable (preferably via USB).
Don't just take our word for it! We're giving away a Lovehoney Flash 6 Function USB Rechargeable Mini Rabbit Ears Vibrator (worth £12.50) to one lucky reader. Comment below before Friday the 29th at 5pm to be automatically entered.
That's not all! I've lined up my favourite sexy news stories from around the world for your reading pleasure. This week has a social media theme, so kick back and enjoy the read (and then tweet about it!)
- As mentioned above, a study has found that one in ten actually admit to using their smartphone during sex. But that's not all - people seem very determined to use their phones at all times (even while in the shower). Are you addicted to your smartphone? Would you ever use it during sex? How would your partner react if you did? [Sex And Smartphones: Nearly One in Ten Check Their Device During The Deed - RedOrbit]
- When I mentioned sophisticated sex toys above, I have to admit I was thinking about the Fun Factory Cobra Libre Luxury Male Vibrator (right, £94.99). Yes, you read right: it's a vibrator for men. Not only that, but it's controlled by touch-activated buttons, comes with a USB charger and (most impressively) has a whopping 56 glowing reviews from Lovehoney customers, with an average score of 4.5/5. Boys, this is one for the Christmas wishlist!
- Are you Facebook official? This one is baffling to me, but apparently broadcasting your relationship status online actually helps to strengthen ties with your partner. Do you think listing your partner on social media helps your relationship? Or would you prefer to keep your personal life private? [Relationship experts applaud Facebook 'couples' pages - CTV]
- When the Christmas Island Tourist Board posted pictures of their native birds online, the last thing they expected was for Facebook to remove the images due to sexual language... But I suppose that's what happens when Boobies are your local birds! [Facebook Blocks Ad for Showing Majestic Boobies - BetaBeat]
One of the best things about social media is how easy it makes it to share funny and sexy videos. Our Video of the Week has certainly been doing the rounds this week, and I'm sure you can figure out why.
The winner of the Lelo Luna Kegel Exercisers (worth £39.99) from last week is empress onyx. Remember to comment below for your chance to win a Lovehoney Flash 6 Function USB Rechargeable Mini Rabbit Ears Vibrator (worth £12.50)!
