We did some research and asked Do You Use Cock Rings? 271 people responded and 44% of people said that they did not use cock rings at all in their lovemaking.
If you haven't tried a cock ring, read on to find out what they do and what our reviewers think of them in their sex toy reviews and which they suggest for you.
If you've seen the Sqweel, you'll know it's unlike any other sex toy on the market. But did you know there is now a brand new range of accessories available so that you can customise your Sqweel? With vibrator attachements and new tongues to tease and please, the new Sqweel accessories have started to get rave sex toy reviews.
"I thought this was a brilliant idea, and I wasn't disappointed. This rubber sleeve fits over your Sqweel and allows you to slide the vibrator of your choice into the holder, allowing you to experience the joys of both toys without getting your hands caught up with each other (or maybe that's just me...). There's not really a lot to say about the product, except that it does what it says on the tin!"

"Fantastic... Loved how the wavy tongues on each side held my clit in the middle... Started with the Sqweel on the slowest setting which felt really good and the sensation was totally different from anything I've felt before. After a good five, ten minutes on this setting I was turned on so kicked it up a gear putting the Sqweel on fast setting. My clit was throbbing with the amazing sensation!"

"The Pearl is harder than the original, which I personally think improves the feeling - the bumps on the Pearl provide intense bursts of sensation without the tickle. It feels a lot more like oral sex than the original (or at least, it does in my opinion) - or rather, a lot more like the oral I would like to receive: no half-hearted, fleeting licks here, just pure orgasmic sensation."

"I had lubed it up well before hand so it was nice and slippery then put in on my clit in slow speed first for a few minutes, the feeling of the nobbly bits with the thin tongue running along the side was amazing and different... I could only last a minute or two before I had an intense orgasm. An intense but quick orgasm."

Did you know that the Sqweel was the winner of Lovehoney's first ever Design A Sex Toy Competition and has been a huge success for inventor Trevor Murphy? The third Design A Sex Toy Competition has now launched, and if you think you can create a new sex toy to rival the Sqweel then submit your idea today!
Letting us peek into his goodie drawer is risqué blogger Jake Holden who writes one of our favourite sex blogs, Facts and Friction. Jake's a 20-something straight male who writes about university life, sex and his own debauched experiences. Guest blogging for us today, he's recently single and looking forward to getting back into the swing of things...
"I think sex toys (and as a wannabe connoisseur of the slippery stuff, I’m going to include lube in this category) are fantastic because everyone can do with a little bit of a helping hand in the bedroom. Whether it’s a cock ring to keep you hard, intensify your orgasm, and stimulate your partner’s clit while inside her, or a TENGA Flip Hole to give the most intense ever orgasms, there are toys for any taste, any activity and any for single individual or couple. Finding the right ones for you is all part of the fun."
"My sex toy collection is relatively modest, as you can see from the photo above. I’ve only been buying toys for about the last three or four years, the time I have been at university and writing about my sexual experiences there on my blog Facts and Friction. At the moment, the majority of my toys are at my house at university, and some less favourite or bulkier toys like my Fleshlight, older lubes and cock rings that can’t compare with the Lelo Tor are at my old room at my parent’s house."
"With my collection I’ve tried to go for high quality toys based on positive reviews on blogs and Lovehoney, rather than amass a collection of plasticy junk toys that will just waste space. My bank balance has also benefited from the reduced range of toys that are available for men, although I do have my eyes on the somewhat pricey Fun Factory Cobra Libre to be the next addition to my collection."
"I store all my toys inside an IKEA cabinet that’s near my bed. Lubes, condoms, my two bullet vibes and a few constant favourites (the Lelo Bob butt plug, Lelo Tor cock ring) are kept in a top drawer, and bulkier or less frequently used toys (such as my beloved TENGA Flip Hole) are kept in the bottom drawer. I adore silicone lube for its silky, never-drying lubricating properties, but do have to be careful to make sure that the perpetually slippery bottle stays away from my silicone Lelo Bob - if that guy got ‘melted’ by the dreaded silicone lube and silicone toy reaction then I’d be very upset. Sadly departed toys such as my TENGA Soft Air Cushion Onacup and TENGA Egg toys are, unfortunately, currently stored in a landfill somewhere :(."
Gulp! It's been another week of you telling it to us straight in your sex toy reviews - and thank goodness everything seemed to meet your approval.
This week's sex toy review round up
Feeling a pang of adult Twilight fever was author Madeline Moore reviewing her own grown-up vampire thriller Lust at First Bite."In all honesty, false modesty aside, this is the vampire short story collection you really want to read, keep, and read again." Read the review.
Reviewing a Lovehoney favourite, Mewsical gave some excellent tips on how to play the Kama Sutra Foreplay Cards. "The winner of each round was allowed to pick a card at random from the losing player's hand, and whatever the card depicted was acted out immediately." Read the review.
Soon-to-be-penniless Pobby relished her Leg Avenue Darling Dorothy Gingham Dress and laments, "if all Leg Avenue kit is this good quality, I will soon be penniless." Unfortunately yes, it's all that lovely! Read the review.
Maybe expecting a little too much from her Adam and Eve 8 Inch PleasureSkin Dildo was capetonian, though her partner will probably be glad to hear it! "My boyfriend could very well become redundant - pity it doesn't do kissing." Read the review.
Giving us our one-liner this week was f-bomb fan phuckmuppet. The Fleshlight Sex in a Can O'Doyle's Stout "got me so hot and I couldn't believe I was f-ing a bit of rubber in a beer can". The review speaks for itself!
Do you have any opinions on your sex toys, good, bad or indifferent? Why not test out some sex toys and let everyone know how it went by adding a new review.
Did you watch The Joy of Teen Sex on Channel 4 last night? Or have you caught up with the programme on 4OD? If you're wondering which toys and lubes the experts were suggesting, look no further.
Bodystockings. The great sexual divide of our nation. Whether you've tried them or not, you've probably got an opinion about whether bodystockings are sexy. And once you've fallen into the 'sexy' or 'not sexy' camp, you tend to stay there. But maybe they're worth a re-think?
What's been going on this week? (You'll be surprised to hear it's all been happening in brackets). Seriously, this week your sex toy reviews have been jam-packed with parenthetical asides (AKA 'stuff in brackets'). Read on to find out what's been said (in brackets).
This week's sex toy review round up
Having worn out an inferior bullet, Nic01 purchased the bestselling Tracey Cox Supersex Bullet Vibrator and found there was no love lost for her old vibe. "(As much as I loved the first one, losing it was the best thing to have happened to me!)" Read the review.
Giving us our one-liner this week was bumble who gave the medicinal-looking Pjur Med Energy Glide lubricant a good testing. Not entirely sure about the warming qualities of the lube she kept a clean-up cloth nearby. After all, "(nothing says sexy quite like a wet flannel)." Read the review.
JabbyJab steps forward to explain what enthusiastic rabbit usage has done to the Lovehoney Jessica Rabbit 2.0 G-Spot Vibrator. Worse for wear, the ears turned into a "bunny stump (surprisingly still quite satisfying though!)" Read the review.
Bashful Babe's review of the delicious Cake Kissable Body Butter waxed lyrical about the scent, but explained the moisturising properties left a little to be desired. "(Is it ironic that a moisturiser dries you out? Alanis Morissette has confused me.)" Read the review.
Loves huni's experience of the Tracey Cox Supersex Silicone Love Ring can be summed up as "Super ring, super sex, super orgasms" but warns "(good luck getting him to last once the toy is on and in place!)" Read the review.

It's 2011 and all of the festive over indulgence had me hankering for the first peaceful week of the year, settling back into the mundane predictability of everyday life. It has been nice to go home and relax on my sofa after work with no pressure to find a dress, do yet another alcohol shop for visiting guests or prepare dinner for anyone but myself. Bliss.
I do get easily bored when I'm home alone though, so I'm turning to the Salegasm! for some new toys to play with. Not quite ready to let the indulgence of Christmas go, like a magpie I've been drawn to the luxury vibrators that have been snuck into our reductions without so much as a whisper, but I'm not letting it slip by unnoticed. I've had my eye on a few of the luxury vibes for some time and now I've found the perfect excuse for treating myself...for once!
Read on to see my lowdown of the biggest luxury toy bargains available now in the Lovehoney Salegasm!
As the clock strikes 12 you'll be faced with the same tiresome choices of New Year's resolutions that are admittedly done with a certain amount of lack-lustre intent and will inevitably be broken as soon as the January depression kicks in.
So why not set yourself on a different path for 2011 and invest in some changes that will improve your sex life and relationship? While everyone else will be suffering with their gruelling detox diets, you'll be kick-starting 2011 with sex-fuelled promise upon reading Lovehoney's Top Sex Resolutions.
