I spent 10 years working as a high-class escort, and in 2009 my autobiography The Girlfriend Experience was published documenting my sexcapades. I’m currently working on a sex tips book and a book titled Why Husbands Stray.
My sex experience is literally hands on, and I learnt a lot about sex and what men want during my time as an escort, and it’s probably not what you think!

The Kwiktwist Giant Twist Ties Twin Pack reminded us of hair curlers, so we decided to see how seamlessly they blended in to the domestic surrounding for this week's Toy with me Tuesday. What do you reckon?
Between hipster dildos and small penis competitions, it's been an exciting week in the world of sex.
But here at the Lovehoney office, we've only had one thing on our minds. Who wins the dozen limited edition TENGA eggs from our competition last week? You commented in your droves, but we could only choose 12 lucky winners - find out if you were chosen below.
This week, we've decided to give away a luxury Lelo Tor II Rechargeable Vibrating Cock Ring, worth a whopping £78.99! Once again, we'll be choosing the winner from the comments, so all you have to do is give us your opinions on the blog below.
To celebrate our luxury couple's toy giveaway, we have a couple-themed sex news round up for you this week. Enjoy, and remember to check back next Sunday to find out if you're a winner!
The Diary of a Submissive is a true story. Names have been changed and situations and people tweaked a little bit, but the emotional heart of the book, how submission feels for me, the paradox of your brain sometimes baulking at something that your body is undeniably enjoying, is the truth. My truth. Honest in a way that might feel harsh at times - and certainly honest enough that proof editing the book made me blush in places, crazy as that sounds.
When I was first getting into BDSM, I found myself thinking a lot about what I’d done in the day or two after each new experience - usually in that dead time when your mind wanders while waiting for the coffee machine at work to do its thing. In a lot of ways my earliest writing was about trying to explain to myself exactly what I got out of submission and how my mind took a while to catch up with what my body was incontrovertibly telling me was hot.

It won't have escaped your notice that it's spider season. They're everywhere at the moment. But, there's one spider that'll be welcome sneaking in to your bedroom: the Halloween-themed Death by Orgasm Black Widow Spider vibe.
And if you want to play a prank on your partner, take Hella's advice and leave it in the shower. Shudder!
Here at Lovehoney we've been celebrating World Egg Day - and we're so eggcited!
Between TENGA eggs and vibrating love eggs, there's plenty of cracking reasons to shop at Lovehoney.
As usual, we've brought together the best in sex news from the web for your enjoyment. So sit back and enjoy Lovehoney's weekly sex news round up.
But it doesn't end there - because we're so excited about Egg Day, we've decided to give away a dozen limited edition TENGA eggs (pictured left, worth £9.99 each) to a dozen lucky readers!
All you have to do is comment on this blog post to enter. This competition runs until Friday afternoon, so get commenting and we'll announce the winner on Lovehoney's Week in Sex News next Sunday. Best of luck!
Erotica is everywhere at the moment. Wherever you go there seems to be someone eyeing up a new sensual-looking book cover or thumbing through the pages of Fifty Shades of Grey.
This newfound surge of love for sexy stories hasn't gone unnoticed by Lovehoney, and you can help us with our research by taking the Erotic Story Survey.
By completing the survey you'll be entered for a chance to win a Magic Pleasure Bundle worth over £100, which contains the top-rated Lovehoney Magic Wand Deluxe, sensual Durex Play O Gel and Lovehoney Tease Me Beginner's Bondage Kit.
It doesn't matter whether you're a seasoned erotic story lover or if you've only read Fifty Shades of Grey, we're looking to find out what you enjoy and how you like to do your reading.
In the wake of Fifty Shades of Grey, we've suddenly seen nipple clamps become more mainstream - sneaking their way into bedrooms across the country. We decided to have a look at the clamps available on Lovehoney and realised that some are so beautiful they are better suited to the jewellery box than the bedside drawer...
There's never a dull moment in the Lovehoney office, but this week has been especially exciting - between our little announcement and some heartwarming customer feedback, we've been kept busy.
But once again the weekend has rolled around, and as usual this Sunday we've scoured the best of the internet for your lazy morning reading pleasure.
We've brought you the regular mix of fascinating sexology articles and sex-related surveys, as well as a heads up on new Lovehoney products.
Sit down with a coffee (the stainless steel butt plug is optional) and enjoy Lovehoney's latest round up of sex news.

Review of the Month
This month's winning review of the Tracey Cox Supersex Bullet Vibrator creates poetry in the face of adversity. Black Eyed Bunny's name seems very apt!
A Cautionary Tale
"Vibrators are fun and just the toy,
For a first time buy for a girl and boy.
Because while they hum and do their thing,
They make you giggle and your body go zing..."
Read the full review by Black Eyed Bunny.
Each month we also choose a selection of highly commended reviews and reward them each with a whopping 2,000 Lovehoney Oh! Points to spend as they wish, or perhaps save up to spend on a luxury sex toy.
