• Foreplay doesn’t just have to be a kiss and a cuddle within the confines of the bedroom. In fact, erotic massage is the perfect way to connect physically and emotionally.

    The majority of our everyday communication is non-verbal and body language plays a huge part in how we communicate and understand other people. It should therefore make sense that massage, one of the most intimate kinds of touch, is a good way of communicating with your lover. Each caress, stroke and rub can be used to say anything from “I adore your body” to “I hope you had a good day at work”.

    Finding tense spots in your partner’s neck, shoulders and back then kneading and massaging them with your hands will not only remove physical pain, but it can help unblock their mind as they focus less on the pain and the stress associated with it.

    A massage can be a simple stroking of the hands or a good going-over of the whole body. Whatever you decide to do, you’ll soon realise the benefits to your heath, your body, your relationship and your sex life.

    When you’re indulging in a spot of anal sex or masturbation with anal play, anal lube should never be left out of your fun and games.

    Anal lubricant differs from regular lube as the consistency is much thicker which helps to protect the sensitive skin of the anus. It's not just a safety issue for the health of your sensitive anal tract: it's also a pleasure thing.

    Almost all sex is enhanced with a good slick of lube and by making sure that there will definitely be no harsh friction, you'll enjoy your anal sex experience much more.

    Our sex life has become boring since having kids. Is anal sex the answer?

    It's not quite as simple as getting your wife to let you try anal sex. I think the answer here is to look at the bigger picture.

    fleshlight-in-useWhen you think of sex toys for men, you might think of sleeves and strokers and maybe even a blow-up doll. If you're sex toy savvy, you'll know that Fleshlights have been around for a while and TENGA has become the byword for designer Japanese sex toys for men. However, a new breed of male sex toys is emerging - the male vibrator.

    Lovehoney customers give us the low down on classic Fleshlight and TENGA toys as well as the new vibrating male toys from Fun Factory in their sex toy reviews.

    Do you agree or disagree with the reviews? What do you think is best type of sex toy for men? Let us know in the comments section!

    Ann Widdecombe Snubs BlueBella at Women of Worth Awards 2011

    BlueBella have hit the headlines in both the Daily Mail and Daily Express today after CEO Emily Bendell was snubbed by Ann Widdecombe at the Women Of Worth Awards, 2011.

    Bendell was due to be presented the Small Business of the Year Award by Ann Widdecombe, who was guest of honour at the annual ceremony, celebrating women's contribution to business.

    After seeing a short film outlining Bendell's lingerie and lovestuff business, Widdecombe swiftly declined to present the award to her, leaving her standing until one of the organisers quickly stepped in.

    emily-award"It was a real surprise to me that it happened at an event that was meant to celebrate the success of women. It certainly took the shine out of the day for me," said Bendell. "Ann is a great proponent of women getting ahead by their own merits so I would have hoped that she would have recognised my acheivements."

    Ann eventually agreed to have a photo taken with Emily, off-stage, and without the award.
