• The Secret Library: Silk Stockings edited by Antonia AdamsThis scene from my story Off the Shelf, from new Xcite Books erotic romance anthology, Silk Stockings is the hottest, in my opinion. Why? I don't want to give too much away (you'll have to buy the book to read the whole story!), but throughout the novella, there's been lots of tension and will-they-won't-they action between the characters Annalise and Damien, and this is where things finally come to a head.

    They've just been out for a lovely meal together, and have finally bitten the bullet and decided to do what they've wanted to do for a while - stop messing around and take their relationship to the next level.

    I love this sex scene for several reasons: one, because the poor souls have waited so long for it; two, because it was so much fun to write; three, because I knew the pair of them were gagging for one another and four, because I finally got to see what Damien looked like naked - I have the biggest crush on him! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this taster of what's to come (pun fully intended) and consider checking out Silk Stockings which contains three seriously hot erotic romance novellas, Off the Shelf.

    Sometimes all a sex toy has to do is defy convention to be truly awesome and that’s why this week's Awesome Sex Toy is the RodeoH Strap-on Harness Underwear.

    I don’t know who first thought “I know, I’ll create a strap-on that looks like something straight out of a pony play scene”, but I would be willing to bet that they had at least one or two horse-hair-embellished butt plugs knocking about in their bedside drawer.

    The RodeoH strap on is different. Part underpants, part strap-on, this alternative harness redefines what it means to partake in strap-on sex.

    Made from comfortable stretchy cotton, this harness fits exactly like a regular pair of pants but has the functionality of a traditional leather and metal strap-on harness... just without the bulky chastity belt aesthetic.

    I find penetration quite painful, what can I do?

    Trying to have sex before you’re ready results in pain, which not surprisingly, blocks arousal. If this happens a few times, it can start to make you apprehensive about penetration, which will further inhibit your body’s natural ability for enjoyment.

    Win A Prize Bundle In Celebration of Lovehoney's 10th Birthday!Everyone at Lovehoney has their favourite sex toy. Some, like the Customer Care team, need to know exactly how each toy feels in order to better help customers. For the rest of us, we all have something that we’ve seen and liked, or maybe was the first toy we bought when we started working here.

    As the Head of Ecommerce at Lovehoney, my favourite toys are not just the ones I like, but the ones I know customers will like, and just as importantly, buy! So, in honour of our 10th Birthday, I thought I would run down the top 10 toys I love at Lovehoney.

    When we think of sex dolls we tend to imagine the basic blow-up doll, but as you can see in the How to Choose a Sex Doll guide there are lots of different types. This week's Awesome Sex Toy is one of our different dolls. The Teddy Babe and Teddy Babe Deluxe are a very special kind of sex doll that was created with more than just sexual pleasure in mind.

    Teddy Babes differ from any other luxury sex doll on the market by virtue of its unique build. Love dolls commonly have vinyl skin or are made from a silicone composition to mimic the feel of flesh and skin but a Teddy Babe has a soft, fluffy touch similar to a soft toy.

    Unlike other sex dolls, Teddy Babes are made for cuddling. They’re filled with stuffing and have a posable wire skeleton, allowing them to be moved and posed in a variety of ways. Every part of their soft and squeezable form is made for loving, something other sex dolls can rarely offer.

    The erofic sensation of 2012, Fifty Shades of Grey is an erotic novel that has everyone from placid homemakers to high-powered business types eager for a cheeky BDSM thrill. There’s something incredibly alluring about the sexual tension between Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, but a D/s lifestyle, contracts and all, is probably a little heavy for most of us and is an idea reserved for our darkest fantasies.

    Between the timidity of sexual trepidation and the feet-first plunge into absolute sexual servitude is a middle line - bondage. For those of us who are intrigued, titillated and tempted by the relationship Ana and Christian enjoy, bedroom bondage offers an experimental platform to live the life of a master or slave for just a few hours.

    In the story, Christian draws up a contract for Ana to sign, outlining the acts and paraphernalia she consents to. Some of the rules are a little heavy handed for normal play, but the sexy list of acts and accessories can form a delicious basis for role play. I’ve picked 10 of the sexiest mentions in Ana’s contract to offer inspiration for a filthy tryst inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey.
