• Sexual Happiness for Lent

    Here at Lovehoney, we're all about sexual happiness, so anything that can help add a little va-va-voom to your sex life is a-okay with us.

    It's that time of year when many people give up something, be it chocolate, smoking or alcohol, amongst many other morish foods and unhealthy habits.

    We think that a good sex life is just as important as a good diet, which is why we've formulated a six-step guide to help you take up something new this year.

    Now that New Year and Valentine's Day are out of the way, this is a great time of year to purge the things that don't contribute to a happy, healthy you. So if you're struggling to find a spark with your partner or sex just isn't quite pushing your buttons - we've come up with a range of products and sex positions to turn it up a notch for the next six weeks, and beyond.

    You have approximately six weeks to try six new things. What have you got to lose? On your marks. Get set. Go!

    Fifty Shades of Grey - The Movie The Telegraph has done us a favour by rounding up the first batch of Fifty Shades of Grey movie reviews. The Telegraph's own reviewer Tim Robey described the film as "electric".

    Variety magazine described the film as a sly tragicomedy of manners - "Jane Austen with a riding crop".

    Lovely employer that it is, Lovehoney has booked a screen at the Odeon in Bath for a free screening for all employees and their partners. Whips, crops and nipple clamps are not being provided (but are available with a generous staff discount!)

    Feeling inspired? Re-create scenes from the movie with the inspirational Fifty Shades of Grey Red Room Collection or treat yourself to something from the Official Pleasure Collection.

    Fifty Shades of Grey Premiere Ticket Lovehoney co-founders Neal Slateford and Richard Longhurst found out what it's like to be in the full glare of the Fifty Shades of Grey spotlight at the movie premiere last night.

    Lovehoney's Product Director Bonny Hall and Logistics Manager Joy Hall were also invited to the movie's premiere at Leicester Square in the heart of London's glittering West End.

    More than 3,000 fans screamed as the Lovehoney team and the film's stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, director Sam Taylor-Johnson and author E L James walked down the grey carpet.

    Jamie Dornan Beard SnifferThe Lovehoney team were invited to the after-party as guests of E L James. Bonny found time to have a chat about what it's like to play in the Red Room with Jamie Dornan... and (bizarrely) sniff his beard.

    Fans of the book will be pleased to hear that Christian Grey's tie is used first as an impromptu bondage accessory. The official Christian Grey's Tie is one of 52 products personally approved by E L James in Lovehoney's Official Fifty Shades of Grey Pleasure Collection.

    Lovehoney recently launched The Official Red Room Collection, a range of 10 high-quality leather bondage items inspired by scenes from the film. Products that feature prominently in the film include a leather flogger and riding crop as Jamie Dornan's Christian Grey introduces Dakota Johnson's Anastasia Steele to the pleasures of the Red Room.

    I Still Want More - Ana Fifty Shades of Grey

    For those of you who can't quite cope with the fact that Fifty Shades of Grey is only a few days away, then "holy cow" have we got some good news for you!

    The makers of Fifty Shades of Grey have announced that both of the Fifty Shades book sequels written by E L James (Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed) will be made into films - all one hundred and fifty shades of the stuff!

    We could be seeing the second installment as soon as February 2016. Still breathing?

    It is yet-to-be confirmed by Universal Studios but director Sam Taylor-Johnson said it's happening, so that's good enough for us.

    The first film hasn't even been released yet and it is already the fastest-selling R-rated (that's Certificate 18 to us Brits) movie ever according to US ticket-seller Fandango.

    It may have been cold outside in January, but that didn't stop our community members from stripping down and snapping some seriously sexy lingerie photos.

    Kicking off our Model of the Month competition for 2015 is this month's winning photo by LeROoooo. We're completely smitten with her picture in the Dreamgirl Plus Size Beyoncé Faux Leather and Lace Corset.

    Shot with beautiful soft lighting and excellent composition, this picture shows off the outfit (and her curves!) wonderfully. See the uncropped version here.

    LeROoooo wins a £100 Lovehoney voucher to spend as she likes. Fancy getting your hands on the top prize? Upload a photo now to be in the running for next month (just be sure to read our Photo Guidelines first).

    E L James launches the Red Room Collection at Coco de Mer

    Fifty Shades of Grey fans in  New York have just had an exclusive preview screening of the hotly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie - and they loved it. Fifty Shades author and stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson were at the screening, making for an absolute Fifty Shades love-fest.

    Follow #fiftyshadefirst and #fiftyshadestoday on Twitter to keep up with the latest.

    New clips from the movie have appeared online via the Today show and the latest Fifty Shades of Grey trailer was broadcast during last weekend's Superbowl.

    But tickling us most at the moment is not the Fifty Shade of Grey Tease Feather Tickler but the rather splendid Fifty Shades of Grey Lego Trailer.

    Earlier this week Lovehoney launched the movie-inspired Fifty Shades of Grey Red Room Collection at London's exclusive erotic boutique Coco de Mer. The collection features 10 lavish bondage items, including padded wrist and ankle cuffs, blindfold and flogger modelled on those used by Christian Grey and Ana Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy.

    What is a ball gag? A gag is a type of bondage equipment designed to muffle the submissive partner during BDSM play. Although there are many different types of gags, ball gags are by far the most popular. While many couples are intimidated by gags at first, after trying it out they often find it adds an exciting edge to Dominance and submission play.

    Ball gags come in several different styles and offer varying levels of restraint. It's important you choose the right gag for you as some are great for beginners, while others are best suited to advanced S&M explorers.

    Womanizer USB Rechargeable Clitoral Stimulator Review of the MonthRevolutionary and unique are words that get thrown around a lot in the sex toy world, but every once and awhile we come across a product that uses a new method of stimulation that really is revolutionary. The Womanizer USB Rechargeable Clitoral Stimulator (£95.00) is one of those products - it uses suction to take the clitoral stimulation to a new level.

    But don't take our word for it! Below is a quote from our favourite user-uploaded review from the past month, which describes a Womanizer orgasm:

    "I experienced one long continuous spasm, no pulsations, just my whole pelvic floor flipping out into one glorious sensation that seemed as if I was in freeze frame. It didn’t stop until I moved the device off my clitoris." Read the full review by BBWinch here.

    We're giving BBWinch a £100 Lovehoney voucher for uploading our favourite review this month, and we've also chosen some runners up which you can see below.
