• It's a bit different from Alton Towers... opening up later this summer in London is Amora, the Academy of Sex & Relationships. ViewLondon reports:

    Located in London's Trocadero near Piccadilly Circus, the Academy brings together hi-tech interactive exhibits along with new media displays, designed to educate and entertain the public about sexual health and relationships.

    The site will occupy around 10,000 square feet of space, with bosses hoping to attract over 600,000 wide-eyed visitors in the first year.

    However, the Academy is not simply a porn show claim its developers, who have spent three years and over £7 million preparing the displays.

    "Titillation is not the goal," said a spokesman for the academy.

    Lovehoney has its own Sex Academy online in the form of our sexcellent Sex Toys Buying Guides, which will give you plenty of inspiration about to how bring new excitement to your love life.

    It's time to tell the world about what you've been getting up to between the sheets in the biggest ever sex survey launched in the UK. MTV, Radio 1 and Durex have got together in a particularly frenzied threesome to launch Bare All This Summer, the biggest ever youth survey about sex – and it’s your chance to make your voice heard.

    Visit the special website at bareall06.co.uk and fill in the survey - and if you do, you get the chance to win money-can’t-buy prizes, including treats from Sugababes, Gnarls Barkley, Muse, Pink and more.

    You can also see what the likes of Pink, Sway Jody Marsh and Duncan James at this MTV web page have to say about their own sexual experiences and see how they compare to yours.

    If you're still feeling like writing more sextastic stuff, you should head to Orgasm Army and contribute a review of your favourite sex toys, or read up on the opinions of others about the best toys to make you smile.

    The national press in the UK has been awash recently with adverts for "The Original Blue Pill", a daring attempt to bring libido-enhancing drugs to the pages of The Daily Telegraph.

    We salute any effort to improve the sexual health of the nation, but have to say that on close inspection, it's hard to tell what the products in the ads actually do... God bless the placebo effect!

    If you want some that'll put a little lead in your pencil, have a go on one of our little blue pill alternatives.

    Looks like there's going to be an attempt to get into the Guinness Book Of Records with the largest Strip Poker contest. Irish Bookmaker Paddy Power originally suggested the idea as a joke, but had nearly a hundred people enquire about taking part. "We're trying to investigate whether it's possible or whether we'll get put in prison for it," said a spokesman. (Spotted in All Headline News).

    We've got several pack of cards to liven up a strip poker session - see our Kama Sutra Playing Cards and Nude Male Playing Cards.

    The New York Post give a thumbs up for Trojan's Vibrating Ring, saying it helps women get a lot more pleasure in the bedroom and works well with a condom too. Here's a bit of their in-depth review of the Trojan Vibrating Ring:

    Only about 30 percent of women reach the big O during sexual intercourse, the majority requiring more creative forms of stimulation to climax.

    Last fall, the company introduced the Vibrating Condom Ring. (Competitors like Durex have recently done the same.) It is a prophylactic-cum-sex toy devised for protection and to enhance his and especially her pleasure during the act of coupling.

    As a self-proclaimed torchbearer of female libidinal gratification, I believe this revved-up condom represents a milestone in women's sexual history. Because Trojan is the country's leading condom manufacturer, the arrival of the Vibrating Condom Ring - now carried by mass retailers like Duane Reade, CVS and Kmart - means that a woman's coital satisfaction is no longer regarded by the mainstream as subordinate to a man's.

    "Female sexuality is out in the open and the message is, 'Take control of your sexuality,'" said David A. Johnson, group product manager at Trojan, noting that more than 40 percent of condom buyers are women, a market that is expanding and one the company is specifically targeting. "Adding a vibrator to a condom is a way that both parties can achieve pleasure at the same time. It adds spice to the bedroom. It's a known fact that vibrators do help women achieve better and more powerful orgasms."

    And if you don't believe them, you can head over to Orgasm Army and read lots of reviews by sex toy users about the best vibrating rings and all sorts of other fantastic gizmos to make your sex life go wild.

    Or, if you're already convinced, you can choose from our big range of vibrating rings - and we've got Trojan condoms too, of course.

    While Sex And The City may have come to an end over two years ago, tours of Carrie and Co's favourite haunts in New York City are still flourishing. New Zealand's Stuff magazine explains:

    "We thought that this tour would have a life of three years after the show but it looks like it will be more," tour organiser Georgette Blau says.

    About 900 people a week take the trip, she says, with New Yorkers making up about 10 per cent of that figure.

    "New York is the show's fifth lady and people feel they need to see that." Another reason for the tour's survival, adds Blau, is withdrawal. "The sales almost tripled when the show ended. People are upset the show is gone," she says.

    As the bus passes through West Village, we stop at the Pleasure Chest - a sex toy shop - where Charlotte bought her famed "rabbit" vibrator."

    If you can't make it to New York, we can bring a little bit of Sex And The City to you - and the most pleasurable bits to boot. We have Charlotte's rabbit vibrator, natch, but we also have the Love Swing that Samantha used to for gravity-defying whoopee. Put the two together and it could mean stratospheric sex...

And with Rooney injured, we can do with all the smiles we can get...

    But the England Victory Vibe is not the only World Cup goody that Ms Honey has stashed in her knickers - we've got Come On England G-Strings and Come On England Posing Pouches too, plus the Come On England Candy Bra for half time snacks.
