    THIS SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED. 

    Lovehoney's most recent online poll was created to find out the worst things to hear during sex. With an array of clickable options and the opportunity to write your own answer, the results were interesting, intriguing and hilarious!

    According to the survey, the worst sound to hear during sex is the front door closing, which took first place with 24 percent.

    What is the worst sound to hear during sex?

    The second worst sound to hear during sex is the sound of your partner screaming the words 'I love your mum'. I have to agree - that's enough to put anyone off their stroke!

    Bizarrely, clocking in at only 1percent was the sound of farm animals - apparently Lovehoney customers can really keep their concentration during those al fresco sessions.

    The best thing about this poll was the answers for those who clicked 'Other'.

    16 percent of people clicked 'Other' and wrote their least favourite sound in the box provided. Some of the other worst sounds to hear during sex included:

    1. A loud fart
    2. "I feel sick"
    3. Someone else's name
    4. Children
    5. "Show me where your mother lives!" (Hat tip to all Ross Noble fans)
    6. "Pass me a duster, I see a cobweb on the ceiling"
    7. "Would you mind if I get a yoghurt?"
    8. Your mate breathing heavily in the corner
    9. Abba
    10. "Touch me harder, Tom Cruise"

    Take part in the newest Lovehoney poll and you can see the answers here within the next few weeks!

    My husband of 14 years has put on weight and I don't fancy him any more. What can I do?

    Let's look at the positives - you love your husband, you've enjoyed 14 years together and you want to spend the rest of your life with him.

    Last week saw the inaugural O Awards, a night of back-slappery and bonhomie in Los Angeles, where the great, good and not-so-good of the sex toys industry assembled for a round of hearty self congratulations.

    Lovehoney was there to enjoy the cheap (free) booze and the view from the top floor of the Sheraton Hotel Universal Studios. And to applaud politely, sometimes noisily, from the wings as the winners went up to collect their gongs.

    And, of course, to bask in the reflected glory that we were first to bring more than a handful of the winning products to the UK over the past couple or three years. We make it our mission to bring you the best sex toys, so we took it as a giant pat on the back for us, too.

    Needless to say, our head buyer Bonny Hall couldn't help herself when presented with the opportunity to press her fizzog in front of the camera...

    Bonny with Sliquid Founder Dean ElliotHere she is with Dean Elliott, founder of Sliquid, the awesome super-slippery lubes that are glycerine-free, paraben-free and otherwise gunk-free for the maximum in worry-free sexual pleasure.

    Sliquid won the award for "Outstanding Lube, Lotion or Potion", which was designed to "recognize excellence in lubricants, massage oils, and other necessities." NICE.

    "I owe this award, and indeed every scintilla of success I've ever had in my entire life, to the incredible and incredibly good-looking team at Lovehoney," Mr Elliott might have said had we bothered to ask him.

    More gurning award winners after the break...

    Microsoft's iPod Amnesty Taking Cue from Lovehoney's Rabbit Amnesty?

    Everyone knows about the bitter rivalry between Microsoft and Apple, but in this case, Microsoft have come out on top due to their clever iPod Amnesty ad campaign.

    But we here at Lovehoney can't help feeling like we've seen this idea somewhere before...

    In fact, Lovehoney launched the Rabbit Amnesty programme back in 2007 - so we're positively OG in the amnesty game!

    Although you can't send us your old mp3 player, you can send us your old vibrator and in return, you'll receive a half price rabbit vibrator from the brilliant Jessica 2.0 range!

    I am a 38 year-old male and I am still a virgin. Any suggestions on ending my virginity?

    I don't think losing your virginity is the main problem here, as I'm pretty sure you could go out on a Saturday night and sooner or later pull a girl.

    Porn Star and Artist Zak SabbathAttractive, intelligent, talented and tattooed. You may never have heard of Zak Sabbath before, but after this interview you'll definitely be Googling his name and searching for preview clips.

    Zak is one of the leading males in the alt porn industry. Having acted in porn for Vivid Entertainment and Bad Seed Productions, Zak's colourfully decorated body is becoming a regular and much appreciated sight for those who like their erotica to have some real grit and substance.

    Not only does Zak star in porn but he produces some of the most amazing and unique art under his real name Zak Smith. In fact, the talented chap received an MFA from Yale University in 2001 and his newly released book "We Did Porn" is already highly rated and reviewed by those lucky enough to get their hands on a copy

    We caught up with Zak to find out more...


    Carly Drew: What are your feelings in regards to the porn industry right now, this second?

    Zak Sabbath: I like it when it lets people who are smart make the movies they want, I don't like it when it doesn't.

    CD: Very rarely do you see any natural light (unless it's an outside scene) so it's hard to figure out if porn is a naked 9 - 5 job or if you're all burning the midnight oil. What hours do you normally work on a porn film?

    ZS: They usually try to shoot during normal business hours, but they're movies, and movies can sprawl sometimes.

    I'm 55, single, and still very interested in sex but my problem is vaginal dryness. Is it just age?

    Yes they do - and yes it's a lot to do with age! Many factors can cause vaginal dryness - it's extremely common.
