• Cock rings (otherwise known as penis rings or love rings) are one of the simplest sex aids around. They work by preventing blood from flowing back down the penis, which in turn helps to make erections feel harder and last longer than normal, making your enjoyment last longer and orgasm more likely.

    Some people choose a cock ring that fits on the shaft, others like the feeling of a cock ring that goes around the penis and the testicles. This guide will show you how to put on both kinds of cock ring.

    This guide explains how to put on a fixed, rigid cock ring. If you would like to know how to put on a stretchy, vibrating cock ring please read the How to Use a Vibrating Cock Ring guide.

    Lovehoney's bestselling Sqweel Oral Sex Simulator has made its cinematic debut in French language film "L'Amore Dure Trois Ans" (Love Lasts 3 Years) directed by Frédéric Beigbeder. That's right, the sex toy in L'Amore Dure Trois Ans is a Sqweel!

    The man holding the Sqweel in the film's trailer comments, "It's obviously a woman who invented this to ruin a man's life." How wrong he is though, as the inventor is none other than Mr Trevor Murphy!

    You can see the Sqweel in L'Amour Dure Trois Ans trailer below at around the 1.28 mark.

    Ran Amano Japanese Sex Doll - Sexy Fun Times Wow!Japanese animation (anime) is playing a bigger part in Western culture and now makes up a reasonable percentage of televisual viewing in the USA and Europe. Colourful, fun and crazy, the wide eyed and small nosed characters of anime have been dubbed in a multitude of languages, making them universally recognisable as culture figures.

    Chasing monsters, going on adventures and generally being pretty awesome, anime characters are aspirational, appealing and great fun to emulate.

    Perhaps we can thank mainstream anime for the increased interest in Hentai, a sexualised form of anime depicting anything from a raunchy romp between two lovers to space-age sex bots capable of changing gender at will and doing unspeakable things with tentacles.

    Animated porn is no longer the reserve of comic book fans, it’s gone mainstream and it’s getting bigger.

    As all Lovehoney customers know, where there’s a kink there’s a product. Taking Hentai fanaticism to one level above non-functional Dakimakura pillows is this week's Awesome Sex Toy...
