    One of Lovehoney's 13 Sex Predictions for 2013 was that technology would give us new ways to stimulate - and only a month into the year, we're already seeing sex toys get more high tech.

    The Hello Touch by Jimmyjane debuted at the XBIZ Pleasure Products conference in Los Angeles (where Lovehoney won International Pleasure Products Company of the Year, by the way).

    This futuristic sex toy features two vibrating pads that slip over the wearer fingers to be used anywhere on the body.

    The novel sex toy has gone down a storm in the tech and sex world - it's been called "the best sex toy ever invented" by Gizmodo and "vibrator of the future" by Slate.

    Don't believe the hype? We're giving away one Hello Touch vibrator to a lucky reader. Just comment below before 8 February to be in with a chance to win.

    Approved by E L James, Lovehoney has worked closely with the author of the erotic trilogy to create the Fifty Shades of Grey Official Pleasure Collection, a sophisticated collection of pleasure products that offer you the exciting and highly-desirable Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele experience.

    Kink and Sex Fails to Excite Sundance Film FestivalBDSM and pornography failed to impress judges at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

    The annual festival, which took place in Utah this past week, featured a host of sex-related entries for the first time ever - but none managed to snap up an award.

    The 10-day Sundance festival is widely recognised for featuring the hottest indie talent, and if this year’s entries were anything to go by, we have an exciting year of sexually themed new releases ahead of us. Between documentaries, shorts and full-length movies, the recent festival saw over a dozen sex-themed entries.

    2012 saw an increasing number of people talking about sex and sex toys in the media - from the phenomenon of Fifty Shades of Grey and the UK release of “Hysteria” - and this trend is set to continue in the coming year with the premieres of BDSM documentary “Kink” and porn actress biopic "Lovelace" to look forward to.

    kissy lips lipstick kissWith Valentine's Day just around the corner, we've been thinking about the joys of kissing.

    Philematology (that's the scientific word for snogging) is not only fun, but it also has surprising help benefits - dentists believe kissing stimulates saliva production, preventing a build up of plaque.

    The occasional kiss is also thought to alleviate the symptoms of hayfever, as well as producing endorphins that relieve stress and boost self-esteem.

    To celebrate the joys of kissing, we've rounded up the best kissing-related articles from around the web for your Sunday reading pleasure.

    Did You Really Say That?Everybody stared at me. It’s what people do when you’re different. I was a wheelchair user, and as I turned 18, I wanted the staring to be for something other than my wheelchair. So I took to punk, in ripped stockings, red hair, blonde hair… hair of multi-coloured styles. Stare on, I declared to the world. I’m here to shock!

    But this occasion presented me with a new twist.

    I’d left the record shop, clutching a precious 12", and a woman, gawping at me, bent down with a huge grin.

    ‘I have to ask. Can you… do it?’

    My face flushed as red as my hair.

    She persisted into my silence. ‘You know, sex. What with your er … situation.’

    ‘**** off,’ I said with my best punk sneer, and she had the nerve to tell me off for rudeness before stomping off. But inside a mixture of anger and despair made me want to slink into a corner with my Sex Pistols LP.
