As we bid a fond farewell to 2012, we’ve been looking ahead, consulting with Lovehoney's Head Buyer Bonny Hall, Analyst Matthew Curry and Sex and Relationship Expert Tracey Cox to try and predict what the coming year might have in store for our sex lives.
I'ts not just Fifty Shades that’s changed our bedroom habits and sex toy purchases over the past year.
Distinct trends have formed thanks to our consumer-savvy ways and new technological developments, and that’s raised the bar for 2013 and what we expect from our bedroom accessories.
From materials to mechanisms, shapes to stimulation settings, here are our top sex toy predictions for 2013...

Brrr! December is well and truly underway and we're almost at the shortest day of the year. While hats, scarves and gloves are all very well and good, we can think of a much better way to keep warm on these cold, dark nights.

In a break from the festive theme of recent Toy with me Tuesdays, we're celebrate National Cocoa Day a little early with this snap. We feel an emergency stash of the Chocolate Body Paint in a Tin stuffed away in the store cupboard would go undetected by even the most determined of chocaholics.

After that news this week, it feels like the country has gone baby-crazy.
The news of the Royal Baby comes at the right time of year, as December is the month with the highest number of conceptions. There's something about festive cheer and long nights that inspires babymaking, which is why so many people have birthdays in September.
In fact, the most fertile day of the year is coming up in just a few days, with December 11th being the day when most conceptions take place. [The Daily Beast]
