• Lift The Trophy

    Wednesday saw the opening ceremony of the 2016 Paralympics in Rio, and in true Olympic fashion, it blew us all away.

    But when the athletes aren't hard at work breaking records in track and field, they're busy breaking beds in the Olympic village, with nearly half a million condoms being distributed throughout both the Olympics and the Paralympics.

    Though it's often perceived that there's something of a taboo around sexuality and disability, we Lovehonians strongly believe that sexual satisfaction should be available for everyone.

    So with this in mind, we've trawled through 150,000 of our customer reviews to find the finest recommendations for differently-abled pleasure - all as chosen by you.

    Fridays are already great. I mean, who doesn't love that Friday feeling? But, how would you like another reason to look forward to the weekend?

    Well click your heels, throw a party and shout "TFI Friday!" because the end of the week just got even more exciting!

    No longer just a prequel to the weekend, Fridays are now the day you get to expand your erotic hoizons with my brand (spanking) new vlog series: Bondage Gone Wilde!

    Whether you're baffled by bondage, stumped by spanking or phased by fetishwear, you'll find the answers to all your kinky conundrums over on the Lovehoney YouTube channel.

    Got a specific question or a suggestion for a vlog? I take requests! Pop a comment over on YouTube and get involved in the discussion. This playlist is as much about your input as it is mine.

    hot-summer-nights-blog

    We're freewheeling it down to the hottest summer months here, and though the sun may not be particularly forthcoming, the heat certainly is.

    But with the nights as humid as they have been lately, it's not always that easy to get in the mood come bedtime.

    If you're anything like me, the evenings are more an experimentation to see which combination of arms and legs flung outside the duvet keeps you coolest, rather than which combination of entwined limbs is most erotic.

    Luckily, though, there are ways to raise the raunch factor without raising the temperature. We've put together a hand-selected collection of summer-friendly toys, lingerie, and bondage gear to keep you looking and feeling your sexiest through the summer months.

    So whether you're getting steamy in Southampton, sizzling in Swansea, or fiery in Fife, just read on to see our sultry summer treats.

    Romantische Date Night

    You’ve found the dress, the caterer’s booked, and you’ve managed to tweak the seating plan so Aunt Ruth isn’t sitting anywhere near Uncle Terry. But what about the honeymoon?

    We all know that the very word, ‘Honeymoon’ is synonymous with ‘bonking like rabbits’, and no wonder.

    Traditionally used to refer to the month after the wedding (which many believed to be the 'sweetest period' of marriage), it was expected to be the time when the bride and groom developed both their physical and spiritual connection.

    Well, other than the fact the majority of us are no longer virgins come the wedding night, little has changed. Many view the honeymoon as one of the most passionate times of their lives, which is great - although it has a tendency to put a heck of a lot of pressure on your sexual performance.

    But don't fret! To ensure your post-nuptial couplings go off without a hitch, here are eight nuggets of sexpert advice. It's time to start married life with a bang. Or several.

    International Women's Day

    As you may or may not be aware, today (March 8th) is International Women's Day. But what does that mean?

    In the home, the workplace, and beyond, IWD seeks to create a society where men and women are treated with equal respect - and here at Lovehoney, we think that should extend to their relationships as well.

    So, the Lovehoney ladies have come up with 6 super top tips to help women everywhere feel confident, self-assured, and empowered both in and out of the bedroom.

    After all, the first person that needs to think you're sexy, is you!

    Alphabet Dating: The After Dark Edition

    A new craze is sweeping the land and it's one we can really get into bed with.

    #AlphabetDating requires two partners to take it in turns to think of dates as they journey through the alphabet of lurrrrrve.

    You could start off with a touch of archery, move on to ballroom dancing and spend one night cooking (and so on and so forth until you end up at the zoo or zorbing because there aren't any other Z dates).

    It's all very romantic and lovely... but we're more concerned with what goes on after the dates. Which is why we're launching the #AfterDarkAlphabet.

    We've scanned our filthy minds to bring you the x-rated version, giving you 26 ways to bring back the fun and naughtiness to your relationship over the coming weeks.

    Let us know how you get on in the comment section below and join the conversation on Twitter using #AfterDarkAlphabet. We'll be revealing a new letter every week so keep an eye out.

    Valentine's Day as a Singleton

    If the thought of spending Valentine's Day on your own fills you with pink, fluffy, heart-shaped dread, have no fear - we have compiled a list of ways to win at Valentine's as a lone wolf.

    For many singles, Valentine's is just another horrible reminder of relationships gone awry. But for those of you who are at peace with your current situation, Valentine's can be the perfect time to celebrate love in general - whether it is love for yourself, love for your friends or love for your family.

    There are plenty of ways to enjoy Valentine's as a singleton, so it's time to stop wallowing in self-pity and make this the best V Day yet.

    Why should couples have all the fun?

    valentines-traditions-around-the-world

    Flowers. Milk Tray. A candlelit dinner. For some of us, these core Valentine's traditions are our idea of heaven; for others, they're outdated clichés that should be avoided at all costs.

    So, what should you do if you're struggling for new inspiration this February 14th? Look to the rest of the world for ideas, of course!

    From Japan, to France, to Guatamala, we've (figuratively) scoured the globe to see how our closest (and furthest) neighbours choose to show their love during the springtime celebrations, and come up with 6 fun and exciting new Lovehoney takes on these global traditions.

    Vegetarian and Vegan Friendly Sex Toys: It's Easy Being Green With Lovehoney!

    At Lovehoney we're committed to being as ethical as possible, which got us thinking about vegan-friendly lubricants, sex toys and lingerie.

    Getting more fruit and veg in your diet is never a bad idea, although I don't think the Rocks Off Ass Berry Vibrating Butt Plug (pictured, £19.99) counts, unfortunately.

    Not only can a vegetarian diet make you healthier, it can also improve your sex life, according to a 2012 study by the University of California, Berkeley. The research showed that people with a diet rich in soy spent more time having sex. Time to go veggie?!

    See our favourite ethical products below, and don't forget to add your vegan sex tips in the comments!
