• As more men become comfortable with their sexuality and start exploring anal play for themselves, it makes sense to invite a partner to help you explore every inch your body, including areas once thought of as ‘out of bounds'.

    The prostate gland is a special part of a man’s body that is directly linked to his penis and testicles, which means that by stimulating this round nub, located around 2 inches in on the front wall of the anus, it will directly affect the rest of his genitals and result in some explosive orgasms.

    In recent years, pegging has taken the sexual world by storm. Pegging is when a woman uses a strap-on harness and dildo to anally penetrate a man, and indulge in female-male strap-on sex. Pegging allows all these little sweet spots to be accessed and enjoyed to their full potential, which many men struggle with on their own.

    My partner and I love anal sex but recently it's been causing me discomfort. What can we do?

    Even a tiny haemorrhoid or fissure can cause pain or discomfort, and trust me, doctors aren’t fazed at all by checking bottoms.

    Congratulations on your decision to buy yourself an anal sex toy! So which one are you going to get? If you’re not sure yet, let Lovehoney guide you through the minefield of anal pleasure products so you can find something that is perfect for you.

    Safe Words and Bondage

    It might seem like a minor detail – unsexy, even – but choosing the right safe word for BDSM play is an important decision to make.

    Whether your partner's wielding a 22 Inch Sportsheets Rubber Whip or the Fetish Fantasy Singapore Stinger Paddle III, you really need to know how to make them stop. No, I mean stop. I said stop! It's not fun anymore!

    I've started to suffer from premature ejaculation. Is there anything I can do?

    Unfortunately, once men experience premature ejaculation, they can get very anxious about it, which doesn’t help matters.

    Sex swings were once an urban myth, supposedly hand-built by professional perverts to satisfy their kinky needs!

    Now, every good sex shop has a range of sex swings, naughty furniture and position enhancers available, all designed to aid you and your partner in your quest for the ultimate orgasm.

    But are they worth it? Do you really need a sex swing to achieve that brilliant new position? Will it pull the ceiling down when you install it?!

    This guide gives you a starting point to understanding sex furniture and swings.

    It's safe to say that masturbation has gone hand-in-hand with Homo sapiens since the dawn of time. But after 200,000 years of palm-on-penis, maybe it's time for a rethink.

    Japanese sex toy company TENGA – established in 2006 Japan by one Mr Matsumoto, a former mechanic – has certainly put a lot of effort into pioneering new ways of giving oneself a hand.

    Sexy Body Graffiti - The Taste Test Caught on Camera!

    This edible piece of foreplay fun, known as Sexy Body Graffiti, arrived on the Lovehoney shelves just in time for Christmas!

    As much as we can explain what an item does and what it looks like in the product description, it would be one hell of a task to explain how it tastes.

    Our original solution to this was the Tuesday Taste Test where I intrepidly went where no other sex blogger dared to tread, by licking and nibbling my way through the contents of the Lovehoney warehouse (including a few things that weren’t actually edible).
