Heavy metal is pretty awesome stuff, and for once I’m not talking about the music genre. When it comes to weight and pressure, very little lives up to the skills of a good metal dildo. They’re cool, hard and completely rigid, and they weigh more inch for inch than glass or any other sex toy material.
Metal sex toys tend to be quite beautiful and intricately cast with sweeping curves and a high-polished finish. This week's Awesome Sex Toy is no exception and it even comes with its own padded flight case. If you love simultaneous clitoral and vaginal stimulation, you’ll love the Metal Worx Double Trouble Metal Dildo.
When I first took this dildo out of the case, I was a bit confused. I couldn’t work out how you’d insert it both vaginally and anally at the same time and there was also something strangely familiar about the shape. I sat it on my desk and watched it for a while, rocking it on its upward curve by intermittently knocking the finger loop.
Seeing it rock back and forth on the curve, I immediately knew what this dildo emulates - the classic two finger vaginal plunge with clitoral thumb stimulation. Brilliant!
Just the name 'Ass Berry' was enough to inspire this week's Toy with me Tuesday. Cream, anyone?
Prostate milking refers to the centuries old practice of relieving the build-up of semen by prostate massage. You can still drive your man wild today, by stimulating his P-spot, more commonly known as the prostate gland, and considered to be the male equivalent of the female G-Spot.

As you can imagine, I get some bizarre things sent to me in the post, but this sample cucumber dildo has got to be up there with one of the weirdest (and best!). We're all familiar with the odd phallic-shape vegetable but this cucumber was specially crafted by a green-fingered entrepreneur who is producing a kit to let you grow your very own cucumber cock.
We're told the seeds and special mould are currently in development, but the instructions are simple:
"Sow the seeds in spring, grow plant as you would any other (greenhouse/inside by a sunny window), wait till they flower then clamp on the mould, wait a week then bosh out pops your fruit!"
Keep your eyes peeled for further developments.
After weeks of typical British summer weather (*ahem*) we finally have some sunshine.
Rather than pouncing on our partners though, this humid weather leavers a lot of us feeling sticky and wanting our own space. Not so good for sexual happiness.
If you find yourself melting in the heat, here are six ways to stay cool in the bedroom while still getting hot, hot, hot.
If you picked up this week's More! Magazine, you'll have spotted Lovehoney as the Workmates of the Week.
More! came to Lovehoney's HQ in Bath, armed with a camera and plenty of questions about our day-to-day lives.
Those interrogated included (from left to right) TV presenter and sexpert Annabelle Knight, Laura from Customer Care (of Adam's Cock fame), me, Hella, Lovehoney Co-Founder Neal Slateford (sometimes know as 'The Professor') and Lovehoney's Head Buyer Bonny Hall - all brandishing Happy Rabbits!

We read recently on the blog of Dr Brooke Magnanti (better known to some as 'Belle de Jour') that it appeared someone was attempting to have her very comprehensive advice on how to stay anonymous online removed.
Lovehoney has regular contact with a lot of sex toy reviewers and bloggers who wish to retain their anonymity for all sorts of reasons. At Eroticon 2012 we met with a lot of (for want of a more nuanced term) sex bloggers - some who wanted to stay entirely anonymous, some that were happy to use their full real name and even those, like Zoe Margolis, who had been outed against their will.
We sincerely hope the post remains up at the original blog and are re-posting the blog as per her request so that this information stays in the public domain.
There are few things as expensive as sex furniture, sex dolls and sex machines in the sex toy world. These intricately detailed pleasure givers take a lot of thought, craftsmanship and effort to put together as well as a bulk load of materials. It’s no wonder they cost a pretty penny.
Every now and then a mould breaker comes along that sticks a pointy tongue out in the direction of convention, leaving me WTFing in the most splendid of ways. This week's Awesome Sex Toy combines two of the most expensive sex toy types available and slaps a surprising price tag on it to boot.
Fans of sex machines and bondage furniture, I give you the Louisiana Lounger Sex Toy Machine (£139.99).
This spectacularly economical bit of kit incorporates a bondage couch, sex position furniture and a thrusting sex machine in one inflatable package.
Though some women are lucky enough to orgasm through penetration alone, for most it's the external, nerve-ending rich clitoris that's key to female pleasure.
