• The most recent poll here on Lovehoney asked the question "If you couldn't have any form of sexual contact, what would be the next best thing?" and the results were both interesting and hilarious.

    Sexual Frustration - What Would You Do?

    Not only did we discover that 26% of people would resort to vigorous exercise if they couldn't have sex, we also discovered that there are some very strange ways of solving sexual frustration that we never even considered before.

    Using the 'other' option, we asked for you to write what you thought was the next best thing to sex and the results ranged from reading, dancing and eating chocolate to... well... the downright hilarious! Here are a few choice cuts of what people would do, instead of having sex:

    - Fishing. I've got a 14 metre pole!
    - Fight chavvy youths
    - Bell-ringing
    - Radio controlled flying
    - Playing ukulele
    - Being a eunuch
    - Hard drugs

    So there you have it folks. If you're feeling sexually frustrated and there's nothing you can do about it, pick up your ukulele and get playing. If it proves an effective method of sexual relief, we may even consider selling them here at Lovehoney!

    Come on, don't be shy - you would wouldn't you? A fiver to flash your baps on the motorway, twenty quid bet to take your top off in the pub... And before you know it, you're seriously considering that £200 offer for a spread (and I use the word advisedly) in Men Only. Or Playgirl, as the case may be.

    But where do you fall on the clothes-off-for-money spectrum? Are you no-way-not-ever-in-a-million-years? Or anything-if-the-price is right?

    Tell us, do!

    Everyone who fills in the survey will be entered in a draw to win £100 of sexy lingerie - good luck!

    If you can't see the submit button at the bottom of the form, you can click here to fill in the Would you take your clothes off for money? survey.

    We'll announce the winner of the lingerie sometime after the psychologically tidy closing date of 30 June.

    Interview: Doctor Lisa Turner, The Orgasm Coach

    Doctor Lisa Turner is everywhere at the moment - newspapers, magazines, lectures, television shows - and for good reason too! Lisa is the UK's first Orgasm Coach and her unique approach to sexual improvement has done more for her clients than just boosting bedroom confidence.

    In fact, many of the people who come to Lisa for orgasm coaching walk away with a new outlook on life and renewed determination and motivation.

    The most recent and biggest piece of research by Doctor Lisa was into the effect of an orgasm on a woman's career. Lisa discovered that while men lose energy through orgasm, women are empowered by them and gain clarity of thought.

    Sex in a Car - How To Do It In Style (And Not Get Caught)

    Cars and sex go together like strawberries and cream, but sex in cars? That's trickier, mainly because the sexier the car, the less sex it allows inside.

    We asked top car journalist Nick Gibb for his choice of 10 cars that go out of their way to make impromptu sex easier, kinkier or more private (and we're assuming here you're after privacy), so before you go out and buy a new motor, read this list...

    Anal Douche Been through a terrible relationship and want to tell the world? Well the wickedly funny Sorry Mom website is dedicated to this very cause!

    Like a modern version of the Dear John letter, the website offers a place to anonymously vent about bad boyfriends, rubbish relationships and sexual misadventures.

    It's also a good way to check that the guy you've just started dating hasn't been rated a Grade A douchebag by his ex's.

    Working as a weird kind of therapy, the I Bang The Worst Dudes site asks that you add a short description of the dude in question, submit a photograph of him and agree to their terms and conditions. To maintain anonymity, the Sorry Mom staff will add a black bar over his eyes and never reveal your name or e-mail address.

    Think of it as taking the cocoon of anger, jealousy and irritation from inside you and unleashing it on the internet as a beautiful butterfly of revenge!

    The Lovehoney Community are a bitter and twisted lot (but oh so sexy!) and decided to vent their own frustrations, Dear John style, in their very own thread.

    Emotional Intelligence and Naked Wrestling Create Better Sex

    Susan Quilliam is a sex and relationship psychologist as well as an intimacy expert. She has produced numerous academic journals and many presentations on the topic of sex, but she has also advised thousands of people through her radio shows, newspaper articles and magazine columns on how to improve their love lives.

    The most recent piece of Susan Quilliam's work to come to light is that those with high levels of emotional intelligence - the ability to manage your own personality and emotional state - have more orgasms and a more enjoyable sex life.

    Like regular intelligence, you can actually build up your emotional intelligence, therefore teaching yourself how to have an amazing sex life through some very simple exercises! We're yet to see a Nintendo DS game for it though...
