    A Lovehoney visitor writes...

    Dear Sirs, Madam,
    Let me send you following file with an idea of a special funny article. It could be suitable for example for lonely traveller :-) Best regards,
    Martin :-)

    Thank you for the suggestion Martin. Unfortunately, life has already imitated art in the form of the Travel Honeypot Vagina Masturbator and sundry other male masturbators.

    We're always keen to hear new ideas for sex toys, though you might what to pay a little more attention to detail with your designs, such as whether or not the user is going to slice his knackers off while he's pounding away.

    BTW, we'll be running out Design A Sex Toy competition again soon. Keep an eye on the blog for details...

    Getting a link from Reddit or dugged by Digg is the stuff of many a blogger's or webmaster's dream. These social news sites have the power to deliver a torrent of traffic to anyone who creates content good enough to be liked and linked by users.

    It just so happened that last week I uploaded a post called Cock Sucking Customer Care In Action to the Lovehoney Sex Toys blog.

    The post features a genuine (and rather abusive) e-mail from a customer and my almost-straight-laced but definitely helpful response.

    Someone added a link to the post on Reddit and over the next few days the sex toys blog experienced a big spike in traffic. Hurrah! Lots more people finding out about Lovehoney! Reading our blog! Looking at our sex toys! Buying our sex toys!

    At least, that's the theory.

    But a quick probe into our Analytics a couple of days after the spike provides some sobering evidence of the Reddit Effect and should give Webmasters cause to question the value of focusing efforts on (and stressing over) obtaining links from Reddit or Digg.

    From the drawer labelled "Most Definitely Not An Officially Endorsed Product" comes news of the (ahem) Sex In Her Shitty love doll.

    Lovingly fashioned from the finest plastic, the (cough) Sarah Jessica Porkher doll is one in a range of 11 celebrity-inspired sex dolls now available in the US (and coming to Lovehoney soon. Ish.).

    Currently, the range features 11 dolls including the J-Ho, the Paris, the Jessica Sin (Jessica Alba), Dirty Christina (Christina Aguilera) and the Lindsay Fully Loaded models.

    The box does a fair impersonation of a Sex And The City product, though we have no idea whether there's any truth in the packaging's claim that she "loves sex in her shitty".

    We don't think they're going to catch on quite as well as the Sex And The City Rabbit Vibrator though.

    Golden Girl Anal Jelly

    In general, I'm not one for an anal lube that has any desensitising agent in it - I would far prefer that you take your time, relax, and ease into anal play. And I would still remind you that if you use a product that numbs you a bit, you need to be extra aware of everything that is going on with yourself and your partner, as it will less easy to notice any damage that is going on.

    That said, however, Golden Girl Anal Jelly is getting such great reviews that I really do have to mention it here, I think.

    With four reviews and a five star rating, this is definitely a lube that is working for some people. You can see all of the reviews here at Orgasm Army, but here are some of the highlights:

    You don't have to buy the Sex And The City DVD Box Sex to see the famous scene that made a star of the rabbit vibrator. Some cheeky scamp has uploaded it to YouTube where it has already garnered an impressive 160,000 views (and rising).

    You can see the Sex And The City Rabbit episode on YouTube - page two of the comments has turned into an amusing ding-dong between some people who see the Sex And The City girls as role models and some who, well, don't.

    Ann Summers would have you believe that their Platinum Rampant Rabbit is the one that is seen in this episode of Sex And The City - but this doesn't look like any branch of Ann Summers that we've ever seen. It's actually a branch of The Pleasure Chest in New York.

    And anyway, Ann Summers doesn't have a shop in New York, does it?

    This is the genuine Sex And The City Rabbit Vibrator.

    See the clip after the break...

    Durex Ribbed Condoms

    I make no promises that the shown Durex Ribbed Condoms are, in fact, the best in the world (in all honesty, this is one of the condoms that divides opinions between love and hate), but since I like them and I write the blog, I choose the picture.  Them's the rules.

    If you want a slightly more democratic selection, though, an old forum topic on what the members consider to be the "best" condom has woken back up - and for those of you out there looking to change condoms, or who aren't sure which to choose first, it is a plethora of useful insight. 

    Some of these condoms that are getting rave reviews I've never even tried, so there is always something to be learned. 

    From the forum:

    Toy Joy His and Her Blindfolds

    The Metro published an article on the rising trend of women to set up NSA (No Strings Attached) sexual assignations. 

    Their stats came from a study released by the internet dating site Dating Direct (of course, one could wonder at what sort of bias would be involved in such a business doing the 'study', but let's just run with it, yes?), who made the 1-in-3 claim for single women.

    While some say it is a liberating thing, as women clearly have equal sex drives to men (individual men and women may vary, naturally), others question if it will end badly. 

    Fears of over-attachment, being considered "easy", and personal safety are all issues to be considered.

    But with the right attitude and precautions?  Could be convenient, well-informed fun (can you imagine the sheer joy of being able to tell a guy upfront what you need in bed and having that be a basis of whether or not you go to bed with him, rather that hoping for the best with the guy you like?  It's like ordering a burger at Burger King):

    We (well the girls around here) are getting slightly hot under the collar at the prospect of the Sex And The City Movie hitting the UK at the end of May. Another chance to see (and fantasise) about Mr Big is just what we need to blow cobwebs away (apparently).

    The movie is due out in the UK on 28 May, so not too long to wait. We're wondering whether the rabbit vibrator is going to make a reappearance or whether the girls have moved on to other new and interesting sex toys by now.

    We have a huge soft spot for Sex And The City because part of the rabbit vibrator's (and by extension, Lovehoney's) success is due to the rabbit being featured in an early episode of Sex And The City.

    [Cue flashback] It was way back in Season 1, Episode 9 The Turtle and the Hare (first broadcast in 1998) that Miranda introduced Carrie and Charlotte to the rabbit vibrator, with Charlotte taking such a liking to her new friend that she became an orgasm-addicted recluse for the whole episode.

    Some [cough] high street companies claim that it was their product that was featured in this seminal episode, but we know different - as our in-depth Sex And The City Rabbit Guide shows.
