A violet wand is an electrosex device used to enhance physical awareness, create a sexy tickling sensation or to induce pain when used on higher settings.
On the lower settings the electricity causes a ticklish tingling that heightens physical awareness and feels incredibly erotic, helping to build sexual anticipation and turn both partners on. Higher settings create more pain and can leave temporary marks on the skin similar to candle wax burns.
Violet wands found their way into bedrooms via the BDSM and fetish communities but more and more vanilla couples are discovering the pleasures of using violet wands as an enhancement to foreplay.
It may feel very odd to her that you want to resume a sex life - especially if things seemed to be OK without one - but you need to convey that you’re serious about your desires, and that this is something you’d like to share together.
Has it really been 13 years since Sex and the City introduced the world to the rabbit vibrator?
Since the airing of the now-famous episode, ‘The Turtle and the Hare' (Season 1, Episode 9), millions of women have discovered exactly why Charlotte favoured staying in with her apartment with this vibrator.

Those who love oral sex know that the 69 position is a great way of making sure that both partners get all of the pleasure and attention they deserve.
Everyone has a different preference about how they position themselves during 69, who goes on top? Do you compromise and go for it side by side?
Our most recent poll: 'Which is your favourite 69 position?' has ended and we've discovered that Lovehoney customers generally prefer 69 with the woman on top.
55% of those who voted said that they preferred it when it was, 'her on top'.
That's an overwhelming majority when you consider that the slightly easier position of 'side by side' only achieved 27% of the votes and 'him on top' gained just 18%.
Do you agree with the majority? Leave a comment letting us know which is you favourite 69 position and why...
