• Does it matter how frequently you have anal sex? How safe is anal douching?

    It's essential to use a lot of anal lube and always take things very slowly.

    The Initiation of Ms Holly K D Grace was born with a writing obsession. It got worse once she actually learned how to write. There's no treatment for it. It's progressive and chronic and quite often interferes with normal, everyday functioning. She might actually be concerned if it wasn't so damned much fun most of the time.

    Her erotica has been published with Xcite Books, Mammoth, Cleis Press, Black Lace, Erotic Review, Ravenous Romance, and Scarlet Magazine.

    K D's critically-acclaimed erotic romance novel, The Initiation of Ms Holly, published by Xcite Books, is Lovehoney's Erotic Book of the Month for June. Buy the 5 star-rated book by K D Grace and get a Lovehoney Powerful Pocket Vibrator absolutely free - a super-charged erotic evening is practically guaranteed.

    1. K D, tell us about how you got started writing erotica.

    I’ve always enjoyed writing the sex scenes in whatever fiction I was writing. They were actually my favourite parts, and I was good at writing them. Unlike a lot of my writer friends, I didn’t find it hard to write the naughty bits. When I first saw Scarlet Magazine’s section for erotica called ‘Cliterature', I thought to myself, ‘I can write that.’ I sent off a story called ‘The Night Bus’ and Scarlet bought it. That was the beginning...

    Review your sex toys and you could win a whopping £100 to spend on whatever you like at Lovehoney! Each month we bestow the crown (and the wonga) on one reviewer who surpasses themselves and writes the best Lovehoney Review of the Month.

    Review of the Month

    Budding new reviewer Nico18 kept it concise and precise with her review of the Lovehoney Powerful Pocket Vibrator. We felt this review would be hugely helpful to a first-timer, and loved the way she gave thoughtful pros and cons. Congratulations!

    "It's almost impossible not to like this vibrator. When I bought it I was still relatively new to the world of sex toys, and this thing just blew my mind.

    In appearance it's pretty unassuming, small and pink. It's got quite a nice weighty feel to it, and certainly isn't "tacky" feeling or anything.

    The fact that it uses AA batteries is a definite plus as it means not trawling the supermarkets for expensive N batteries. Here are my top three reasons why you should try it..."

    Read the full review.

    Each month we also choose a selection of highly commended reviews and reward them each with (count 'em) 2000 Oh! Points to spend as they wish - or perhaps save up for a luxury toy.

    Read on to find out who was highly commended and earned the points this month, and make sure you write a sex toy review so you can be in with a chance in June!

    Model of the Month MayEach month we choose one Model of the Month to win £100 to spend on sex toys, sexy lingerie or sexy costumes. Amateurs and professionals alike send us their best snaps in the hope of scooping this awesome prize.

    We look for strong, confident poses, excellent composition and consideration of the set up. (No matter how erotic your shot may be, light switches or drawings by your children in the background ruin the atmosphere!) Most importantly though, is showing the lingerie or costume off to its best and letting everyone else see how it fits and flatters.

    Winning the title of May's Model of the Month, and the £100 shopping spree is Lauren Lascivious who modelled the Folter Skull Immortalis Skull Motif Monokini Body in a way that showed off the brilliant curves of the swimwear, as well as divinely framing her ink. Congratulations!

    If you want to be in with a chance to win a £100 shopping spree on Lovehoney, just upload a picture of yourself wearing sexy lingerie or costumes and check back next month.

    My boyfriend thinks I'm unhappy with our sex life as I'm shy in the bedroom. How can I reassure him?

    Not by thrashing about and screaming - and pretending to be something you're not!

    When used correctly, condoms can protect against pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections - but it's essential that you know how to apply and remove them properly.

    Condoms offer essential protection in casual relationships, for both partners. Read our guide How to Choose a Condom to learn the difference between different types of condoms.

    Once you've chosen the right condoms for you and your partner, it's time to learn how to use them effectively. This guide explains everything you need to know about putting on, using and removing a condom.

    Black Level PVC Mini Dress with SuspendersPVC is polyvinylchloride, a thermoplastic polymer that is used to coat fabric to create a shiny, waterproof surface. It has become a common fetishwear fabric in recent years as a cheap alternative to patent leather. Another term for PVC is vinyl, which is more commonly used to describe the fabric in the USA.

    PVC was created as a synthetic alternative to leather, possessing similar qualities and characteristics but without the difficult requirements for care. PVC is an easy way to experiment with a fetish look, but is equally suited to an existing fetishwear collection for when you want something less high maintenance. Not skin tight like rubber or latex, PVC is flattering and easy to wear while cavorting in the bedroom or club.
