• Best Sexy Valentines Gifts for Her Buyers Guide

    Valentine's Day is all about demonstrating your love, but choosing a gift for men can be really tricky if they're not keen on overly romantic gestures.

    A sex toy is a gift that'll make your celebrations extra special, and it's something he can use alone - or with you - time and time again.

    We've picked out some of the best toys for different budgets, so even if you're stuck for Valentine's ideas you'll be able to find the perfect present for him. Whatever your price range or his preferences, you can find the right sexy Valentine's gift for him with the help of this guide.

    If he’s new to the world of sex toys, then getting something you can enjoy together is a great way to introduce some sexy extras. Mutual toys such as vibrating cock rings have amazing benefits for lovemaking, increasing your chances of climaxing together and giving you both a physical boost. A textured stroker sleeve is a great gift to enhance his solo sessions, and an incredibly sexy addition to a hand job.

    If he’s already a toy veteran, then treating him to a luxury male sex toy he can enjoy for years to come is a perfect way to show your love! Whether it’s his first toy or his hundredth, he’s bound to thank you in kind.

    Does your Valentine's Day usually goes along the lines of card, flowers, fancy dinner? That old romantic routine is so well worn, it can get boring - so remember to bring the fun as well! From the cuddly to the kinky, we've picked a range of sexy and playful Valentine's ideas that put a whole new spin on the usual hearts and roses.

    The Minna Ola is the world's first fully customisable luxury vibrator that lets you create and record your own patterns quickly and easily. Not only is it extremely easy to use, but it gives you a freedom that doesn't come with other vibrators - it allows you to sync your own desires with its innovative memory by letting you create and record up to 10 seconds of your very own pattern. A curved body makes it perfect for G-spot stimulation and deeply satisfying penetration - and it's available exclusively in the UK from Lovehoney.

    Lovehoney TV's Annabelle demonstrates the luxurious Minna Ola, explaining its amazing memory function, curvaceous form and easy-to-use buttons:

    Getting Deep and Meaningful - Some Thoughts on Deep Throating

    Deep throating refers to taking the entire erect penis into the mouth and entrance of the throat. You don't need to be a porn star to do it, but be warned - it is a skill and it does take some practice. And make sure you deep throat a partner you’re really comfortable with - someone you trust, who is also patient, as it’s you, the giver, who sets the pace, not him...

    J&D's Baconlube Bacon Flavoured Lubricant 57mlBaconlube - it's umami for your salami!

    We humans are incredibly varied individuals and contrary to the proverb, what’s good for the goose isn't always good for the gander, not directly anyway. When discussing your turn ons with your partner you won’t be surprised to find that you don’t just like having different buttons pushed, you in fact have different buttons all together.

    But what if their buttons are slightly more... oblong than you’re used to?

    What would you say if your partner paused mid passion to whisper sweetly in your ear; “I want to slather you with bacon and eat it off of you?”

    Even if you’re not vegetarian or vegan this request is likely to stop you dead in your tracks. There can’t be that many people who share such a niche erotic desire to be smeared with bacon... can there?

    If that’s so, why in the name of all that is sexy does J&D’s Baconlube exist?

    Promising everything that comes from a larger vibrator in a smaller package, Lovehoney's Oh! Rabbit Slimline Silicone Vibrator is ideal for those who prefer their sex toys more miniature than massive. Alongside a satisfying range of vibrating settings in the ears (3 speeds and 4 patterns), the shaft rotates for intense G-spot stimulation and is controllable using a simple light-up control pad on the base.

    In this week's Lovehoney TV video, Annabelle demonstrates the Lovehoney Oh! Rabbit Slimline:

    Sex Tricks to Try: Sacrificial Lingerie

    There’s something wild and wonderful about tearing each other’s clothes off - and I’m talking literally. I once had a memorably lustful exchange with a boyfriend who burst in on me in a theatre dressing room, and ripped open the tight Victorian bodice that was part of my costume. As the twenty-odd tiny fastenings pinged across the room, I did for a nano-second think what a pain in the arse it was going to be sewing them all back on, but this was soon eclipsed by the heady euphoria induced by his wanton, button-popping desire.

    That was an unexpected and spontaneous moment, but there’s no reason why with some sexy lingerie you can’t plan a bodice-ripping scenario of your own...

    Pipedream Extreme Deep Throat Masturbation StationRealistic oral sex toys are among the best-selling sex toys for men at Lovehoney but getting it right can be a tricky issue. Sex dolls don’t always cut it as they tend to have heads full of air and lack sufficient pressure. Realistic flesh although weighty can be a little too wobbly to handle smoothly. There needs to be a happy medium between the two. Thanks to my favourite kinksters Pipedream Extreme, you can now experience flawless fellatio without a partner with the eloquently named Masturbation Station (£140.00).

    If you’re looking at the photo thinking it looks familiar, it may be that your little sister had something similar in her toy box. This oral sex simulator has been modelled on the hairdresser dummy and even has heat-styleable hair. In place of the usual hard plastics though is soft and squishy FantaFlesh. This soft and fleshy material extends into her mouth and down into her 6-inch-deep ribbed throat. Push past her lips and you’ll be amazed at how well she stretches to accommodate your length and girth for an incredible deep throat sensation.

    Despite the soft composition of her skin, the whole unit is incredibly solid and the best part of this innovative male sex toy is the sucker base. You can mount this head on any hard surface you like for gratification at any angle complete with obligatory head bobbing - something I’ve not seen on any other sex doll. The finishing touch is a pair of eyes that close shut when you tilt her head back.

    A sucker-mounted deep throat dolly that allows you to practice your hair and make-up skills? Awesome!
