• The fantastic TV show Generation Sex, which airs in October on Channel 5, recently came to Lovehoney HQ to talk to the team about all things eco-sex!

    Interview with Cheryl Mildenhall, Author of The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

    Everyone in the Lovehoney office absolutely adores The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea so we were desperate to ask the woman we've dubbed "The Cult Leader" a few questions all about it!

    Despite our best efforts, we were originally unable to track Cheryl Mildenhall down. We spent hours googling her, emailing Black Lace, asking other erotica authors and contacting Emap, but to no avail. We even went as far as to consider going to London and banging on every door until we found her (but we didn't, because we're not weird like that...!).

    Spectra Gel Beaded Anal Vibrator

    Lovehoney Community members share their sex tips...

    "If you're curious about anal sex but find the thought of being penetrated by something as big as a willy somewhat tear-inducing, try experimenting with a toy which gradually increases in girth, like the Spectra Gel Beaded Anal Vibrator.

    The smaller beads at the end allow you to start off with a little gentle probing and with time (and plenty of lube) you can build yourself up to fuller sensation with the larger beads.

    The beaded texture allows the muscles in your arse to close around the toy, holding it in place, so you get used to having something up there. As it's also a vibrator, you'll get some new and interesting sensations. Well worth exploring!"

    The Devil and the Deep Blue SeaThe now defunct New Woman magazine originally gave this month's Book of the Month, The Devil and The Deep Blue Sea, away as a freebie back in 1995.

    As one of the first magazines to give away a full erotic novel completely free, the book and the magazine quickly gained notoriety, especially due to the raunchy sex scenes and dirty details of the novel!

    The author is the talented Cheryl Mildenhall who was part of the original wave of Black Lace writers.

    In The Devil and The Deep Blue Sea and her other books, Cheryl successfully combined gritty realism, the romance of Jilly Cooper's novels and the graphic sex one expects from Black Lace.

    Lovehoney has done some investigative work and discovered more about the book from the people who've read it. From erotica authors to Lovehoney staff, here are some insights into this brilliant book:


    Jen Charles, Freelance Erotica Writer

    I read The Devil and The Deep Blue Sea when I was 19, at university. A friend bought New Woman and didn't want the free book so gave it to me; little did she know that it would still be sat in my collection now!

    A man breaking open a fig and eating it in front of his lover is a powerful erotic act.
