    Sensational Summer Sex Toys

    Summer is here! Well... kind of.

    In between the bursts of rain and the scorchingly hot sun, there are plenty of occasions to play and we're going to show you exactly how!

    Whether you already own these sex toys or are considering buying something new, don't do anything until you've read this brilliant guide on how to really heat things up this summer.

    If it's hot outside and you're stuck indoors, then pop a pack of Durex Play 2 in 1 Massage Melts in the fridge and get ready to really cool yourself down.

    These freezable disks look just like ice cubes but on contact with the skin, they melt into a body-safe, water-based lubricant that can be used absolutely anywhere! So indulge in a tingly cool shoulder massage or use them in a more intimate context.

    My partner is easily aroused but struggles to reach orgasm. Can you recommend a powerful vibrator?

    First of all let me reassure you both that it's not unusual to be unable to orgasm through penetrative or oral sex alone. And more vibration is needed as we get older.

    How To Take Your Own Sexy Photos

    Follow us on Twitter We were wringing our Web 2.0 hands last week when the Lovehoney Twitter account was summarily suspended amid accusations of spam, malefeasance and assorted skullduggery. We were innocent, of course, and protested from the highest mount - well we contested our Twitter account suspension through the official channel and twiddled our thumbs for a bit.

    After a couple of days we were assigned a Twitter operative, which reassured us that at least someone was looking into what had happened.

    And then, well, we waited some more. And worried a bit more.

    So we poked around some Twitter discussion forums which for the most part revealed that if your Twitter account gets suspended by mistake, you just have to wait for it to come back. Not much consolation for us.

    But buried deep in the comments was an e-mail address for a Twitter operative called Delbius, who we contacted directly and within no time at all our account was back in operation. Thank you Delbius!

    Why was our Twitter account suspended in the first place? Delbius reveals:

    > I've restored the account; it would appear that it was flagged as
    > part of a spam cloud. In the future, please contact me with a ticket
    > number as that makes this process much easier -- or just wait for us
    > to resolve the ticket.
    >
    > Thanks,
    > Del

    Which for us begged the question: what is a spam cloud? To which Del helpfully and swiftly answered:

    > Essentially, it's when a group of accounts start spamming;
    > some spam accounts started messaging with updates you were
    > sending out and you were caught up in the resulting chaos.
    > Thanks,
    > Del

    So we were collateral damage in someone else's nefarious spam activity. And it turns out quite a lot of other Twitter accounts were suspended due to the spam cloud scare too.

    Everything seems to have been sorted now, but if your Twitter account gets suspended, don't panic!

    Fill in the Twitter account suspension appeal form and twiddle your thumbs for a bit. If you're twiddling for too long, e-mail Delbius - del at twitter.com

    Thank you Delbius!

    Bonny Hall and The Professor accept Lovehoney's Online Retailer of the Year Award Truly we are humbled by the adulation of our peers. Yesterday, Lovehoney was named 2009 Online Adult Retailer of the Year at the prestigious Erotic Trade Only annual awards, held on a concourse at the Birmingham NEC. And here is a picture of our head buyer Bonny Hall and The Professor (in his civvies) graciously accepting the plaudit.

    What is Erotic Trade Only? It's the trade publication for our 'industry' - think of it as the adult version of those funny guest publications that they grab the headlines from at the end of Have I Got News For You?. Things like Global Slag Magazine, Miniature Donkey Talk and The Shock & Vibration Digest.

    Come to think of it, ETO would fit in quite well with any of those, though sadly the publishers of Global Slag have decided to call time on the magazine. We shed a tear for its demise.

    But we digress! The ETO Awards are voted for by 'the industry' so we're super-chuffed that our achievements have been recognised by our peers, but we're even more super-chuffed that so many people keep coming back to shop at Lovehoney. We thank you all!

    Join us on Facebook! Are you on Facebook? Come and have sex with us! Or, failing that, have a chat, ask some questions (silly, sexy or otherwise), and generally have a laugh.

    My partner doesn't enjoy foreplay - she won't do anything to please me. Help!

    Assuming you're paying suitable attention to your own personal hygiene, it sounds as though your girlfriend may be suffering from a lack of confidence in the bedroom.

    Home shopping parties have seen something of a resurgeance recently as organisers find it's a good way to top-up their incomes in the down-turn, and groups of girls find that it's a fun, low-cost way to have a night in.

    But why exactly do you go to home shopping parties? What do you buy there? And (crucially!) how much money do you spend?

    All you have to do is complete the dinky little survey and we'll let you know the results soon - who knows, maybe you'll see a Lovehoney Rep in your house in the near future!

    Here comes the survey after the break... Have fun!
