• Rabbit AmnestyWhat did you do the last time your much loved vibrator finally spluttered to a heart-breaking halt? Did you proudly take it to the local tip's electrical recycling section? Or was it disguised in a nondescript packet and stuffed in the kitchen bin?

    New recycling regulations mean that all electrical equipment - including sex toys - must be disposed of at a designated electrical waste collection centre. Lovehoney's sex toy recycling scheme makes doing the right thing easy, cringe-free and totally rewarding.

    Lovehoney's Rabbit Amnesty will take your old vibrators, recycle them, make a donation to the World Land Trust on your behalf and then give you Oh! Points to spend on a shiny new sex toy. And because we can recycle any WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment), we'll even give you Oh! Points if you send us toasters, hair straighteners or electric shavers.

    With a mix of materials making up their body-perfect forms, caring for a sex doll can seem like a tricky task. With a little care and attention, your favourite love doll will last the distance.

    Here are my top tips for looking after your blow-up and realistic sex dolls.

    Sex dolls provide sexual stimulation by allowing you to get hands-free penetration in positions virtually identical to those you would with a partner. They're closer to the physical experience of having sex than handheld masturbators and the experience of sex with dolls is something many people are keen to explore.

    To the sex doll virgin, the range of dolls can be confusing and knowing exactly where to start can be frustrating. It's better to do research before buying to avoid a disappointing purchase.

    We sell two distinctive types of sex dolls: inexpensive blow up sex dolls and advanced lifelike sex dolls. This guide will help you choose the right sex doll for you.

    Whether male or female, sex dolls are designed to closely match the shape and feel of a real person, making masturbation as close to sexual intercourse as you can get. Sometimes cheap sex dolls can seemingly come up short in the realism stakes. You can lock your doll away in the cupboard and write off the experience, return your doll using our 365 returns policy and opt for a more expensive lifelike sex doll or alternatively - put in a little work of your own to make the most of your purchase. After all, if sex with your partner isn’t great, there’s always room for improvement and the same is true for you and your doll.

    This guide is geared to give you some ideas on how to improve the look and feel of your sex doll. If you find your doll unattractive, then you’re less likely to enjoy them and may even face performance issues. If it feels bad to have sex with a doll, then the purpose of having bought it is entirely defeated. It is possible to upgrade your dolls using things you can pick up here at Lovehoney and this guide will show you how to transform your dud into dynamite.

    My boyfriend can get an erection but can't orgasm. What can I do?

    It sounds like your boyfriend is suffering from retarded ejaculation.

    TENGA Egg WavyTo reward the writers of sex toy reviews, we give a £100 shopping spree to the person who writes the Lovehoney Review of the Month. We also choose a selection of highly commended reviews and reward them each with 2000 Oh! Points to spend as they wish - or save up for something special.

    Swooping in and winning the title of Review of the Month was Lovehoney Forum regular Avrielle_Aniko. We loved how she explained why she was getting a stroker for her partner, and the way she combined this information with a practical commentary on the pros and cons of the product.

    "My partner and I have been together for over 4 years now and while he is aware that I hold an interest in sex toys and, in particular, the Lovehoney website, he has never been very keen on the idea. He is a little old-fashioned and thinks of sex toys as something that should be hidden away and are embarrassing.

    As my sex toy collection grew, his view began to clash with my lifestyle. I wanted him to understand that sex toys are nothing to be ashamed of and that they are supposed to fun, hence the name 'sex toy' rather than 'sex tool'.

    I came across these TENGA Eggs and thought them to be a fabulous idea to try and turn my man's mind around when the right opportunity arose. I had a look at the selection of styles and decided that the Wavy Egg would be the best beginners choice."

    Freedom HealthThe risk of transmitting a sexually transmitted infection (STI) while sharing a sex toy with someone is extremely low. However, to minimise the risk completely, it’s advised that you wear protection and practice safe sex.

    The reason is simple, genital fluids like blood and semen can carry diseases and some toys can crack or develop holes over time where dangerous bacteria can hide.

    Fun Zone Vulcan Ripe Vagina Male StrokerThe Fun Zone range of male masturbators has caused excitement here at Lovehoney HQ. This varied collection of strokers provide quality, realistic sex sensations for the price of a cheap sex toy. A multi-use toy, they allows users to experience the intensely realistic sensations of a luxury masturbator for a fraction of the price.

    Inside each case is a sleeve made from Refined Touch - a lifelike material that simulates the textures of real skin. With care, each sleeves can last for up to 100 uses. The sleeve is concealed inside a discreet case that hides the masturbators appearance and helps keep it clean and germ-free during storage.

    If you want the most lifelike sensations, choose a realistic feel sex toy for your solo sex. These high-end toys are made from a variety of trademarked materials that have been engineered to feel just like human skin and flesh. Soft to the touch, stretchy, quick to warm and certain to retain their shape, realistic vaginas and lifelike dildos are a wonderful innovation that will vastly improve the authenticity of your experience.

    Realistic sex toys are made from a mix of plastics, rubbers and silicone and need care to keep them feeling incredible. Without due care rubbers can deteriorate and silicone can melt, meaning your toy can become a sticky mess with a future at Rabbit Amnesty - such a shameful waste.

    To check if your fake vagina, lifelike sex doll or realistic dildo is made from realistic feel material and needs special attention, go to the product page on Lovehoney. You can easily see that this toy is made from Realistic Feel material, and the type of real feel material is specified in brackets.
