• Story of O by Pauline RéageIn normal circumstances we would feature an interview with the author of the Lovehoney Erotic Book Club Book of the Month but sadly, Pauline Réage, the author of Story of O passed away in 1998.

    However, the author's life is so fascinating and the hidden tale behind the Story of O so intriguing, there's no way that we couldn't let you in on it!

    Story of O is widely acknowledged to be one of the most famous erotic novels of all time. Graham Greene described it as "a rare thing, a pornographic book well written and without a trace of obscenity".

    Harold Pinter called it "a remarkable piece of work", while Brian Aldiss proclaimed, "I do believe that Pauline Réage had confounded all her critics and made pornography (if that is what it is) an art".

    These are just a few of the incredible compliments from some of the most prolific literaries of modern times, especially as Story of O has been so controversial and divisive in its approach to sex, feminism, discipline and submission.

    Tracey Cox Supersex G-Spot Oragsm Kit Put your party hat on and come join us in our appreciation of the orgasm and all its spine-tingling, lip-biting, toe-clenching, breathtaking wonder!

    National Orgasm Day takes on a new relevance in 2008 due to a report in February in the Journal of Sexual Medicine by Prof Emmanuelle Jannini, who claimed that most women cannot achieve a vaginal orgasm because they lack a G-spot.

    However, Lovehoney wants you to help prove that this is not the case! We believe that every woman has a G-spot, but the likelihood of you being able to achieve orgasm through it depends on your own sensitivity and response to stimulation.

    Most women are unsure of how they can increase the sensitivity of the G-Spot and how they can stimulate it, but we have just the answer!

    Juli Ashton Pocket Rocket and Sleeve Lovehoney readers reveal their favourite sex tips...

    I would just like to share a tip on how to make love to your other half just that little bit more exciting...

    We both enjoy the classic 69 position, and just recently decided to purchase two little Pocket Rocket Vibrators (one speed, tiny vibrators) to use on each.

    As you both get into the old sucking and slurping, try pressing the vibrators against each other's anus and watch what happens. It might feel strange at first but you soon get into the swing of things.

    I have never cum so hard in my life. Her wet mouth sucking me and the vibrations from the toy were just too much!

    My fiancée screamed down the house when she came this way :)

    Want to try this? Check out Lovehoney's tremendous range of Mini Vibrators.

    Last year we ran an erotic story writing competition and the winning entry was Dirty Little Secret, by Carly Drew.

    Six months later, and after we had unglued her hands from her head, we decided to offer Carly a job writing for Lovehoney - and we were delighted when she said: "Yes, that would be nice." (Or words to that effect.)

    So you'll be seeing a lot more of Carly's words on Lovehoney by way of blogs, buyer's guides and (if we can persuade her) more erotic stories that we'll just give away for free. Because we (and Carly) are nice like that.

    Welcome Carly!

    Shibue Strapless G-String If those unsightly bulges and material lines across your hips and back caused by badly fitting underwear are the bane of your fashion-existence, then check out the Shibue Couture Strapless G-String, new to Lovehoney this summer!

    Whether you're attending a wedding, going to the spa or out for a night of partying, the Shibue strapless G-string will leave you looking smooth and sleek without the daunting prospect of going commando!

    As Jenny, the creator of the Shibue Strapless G-String explains:

    "I became engrossed in my search for that special product that would not cut into the sides of my hips, across the back or thighs, or squeeze me out in other areas. Another important criterion is that I wanted something very sexy!

    I began cutting, taping, sewing and shopping for products that would help me create the look and feel of freedom without unflattering panty lines. And voila! The Shibue Couture Strapless G-String was born!"

    This gorgeous piece of lingerie is not only sensationally sexy but is easy to use too! Simply press the self-adhesive strips provided onto the front and back edging of the G-string then apply to freshly washed and dried skin, one side at a time. The G-string will stay in place for as long as needed!

    Keep checking back as we add more designs and products to the Shibue Couture range throughout the summer!

    Naughty Boy Prostate Massager If you enjoyed the Rude Boy Prostate Massager (or were slightly intimidated by its size!), you'll be delighted to discover the new, slimmer Naughty Boy Prostate Massager!

    The Naughty Boy Prostate Massager is slimmer, sleeker and more streamlined in design, ideal for both absolute beginners and veterans of prostate play.

    Made from the softest and most flexible silicone, this massager feels wonderful when nestled internally against your P-spot. And for that double helping of pleasure, the cool, smooth, RO-80 Ammunition Bullet sits perfectly against the perineum!

    For the best sensations, lube up and slide the gently tapered tip inside of you until you feel it resting against your prostate (if this is your first time, don't worry - you'll definitely be able to tell when it's there!).

    Sit up straight and rock back and forth slowly, allowing the tip to rub sensually over your P-spot and the bullet to rest on your perineum. Then simply let the vibrations and sensations rock you to an indescribable, hands-free orgasm!

    Whether you use it as a solo toy or with your partner, the vibrating Naughty Boy Prostate Massager is sure to become a firm favourite!

    Try blindfolding your partner and tying them to the bed (just for that extra kinkyness!).

    CB6000 Chastity Belt I was lucky enough to catch the first episode of MTV's "Totally Calum Best: The Best is Yet to Come" (d'ya see what they did there?!) on Sunday.

    The basic premise of the show is that Calum Best, a well known ladies man and son of George Best, is going to prove that he is more than just a tabloid-courting Casanova!

    And how is he going to do that? By going to LA for 50 days and 50 nights and remaining celibate for the entire time!

    It seems strange that a man who wants to avoid sexual contact with women would go to a place which is full of beautiful ladies in bikinis, but he wants a challenge and he's sure to get one there!

    Ultimate Pocket Masturbation Kit For Him Lovehoney readers reveal their favourite sex tips...

    Reading many articles and talking to the few people prepared to actually admit the fact, it seems that most people women and men masturbate solely in private.

    I must admit that in the early years of our relationship I felt very conscious about "doing it" in front of my hubby but now it seems the most natural of things of things to do.

    I love seeing my hubby get his cock out and stroke it, to see it twitch, to watch the pre-cum drip from the hood tip. I love it when he jerks it faster and faster till it becomes like a blur, then his body stiffens and he shoots his load.

    My hubby loves me to open my legs really wide so he can enjoy the view, one hand playing with my pussy and the other teasing my nipples, when my right nipple gets big and hard I stick two fingers into my now soaking wet pussy and enjoy probing for a few minutes before furiously rubbing my clitty to a very wet climax.

    We have found that masturbating "together" brings us together even more... masturbation can be as good sometimes even better than routine sexual intercourse.

    We share our fantasy stories, role play and I believe couples who masturbate in private (or not at all) are robbing themselves of a sharing and very pleasurable experience.
