Over the course of May, our intrepid sex toy testers have been trying out different sex related products to see if they aid them in becoming sexy for summer. Now it's time to see if these bizarre cookies from Japan can give you the bikini-perfect bust you really want...
F Cup Cookies have been making quite a name for themselves in the media. From Radio 1 to the Sunday Mail, everyone has been conducting their own experiments to see if these sweet samples of Japanese confectionary really work.
Their claim is that by eating 1 - 2 cookies a day you can increase your breast size up to a Japanese F cup which is approximately a UK size DD.
Each cookie is just 70 calories and contains a herbal breast enhancer called Pueraria Mirifica which has a high concentration of phytoestrogens. These work much in the same way as hormonal estrogen by maximizing blood flow and encouraging growth and maintenance of breast tissue.
The effect is supposed to be permanent and leave you with a bust to be proud of in a relatively short space of time.
Lovehoney already sell breast enhancing products but the results of the F Cup Cookie test is sure to influence if the product will be stocked in future.
And what better person to try them out than myself! After all, I could always do with a little boost in the nork department...
Carly says:For those that are new to the blog, my name is Carly and I have always wanted bigger breasts. However, that's not to say that I'm disappointed with my current cleavage - in fact, I'm quite happy with my shapely 34B's - but I've always fancied going bigger.
The reason for this is simple: I like boobs. And if I can have more boobs in a painless and easy way - why wouldn't I?
When you think of sex toys, you don't necessarily think of the designer who made them according to our Lovehoney poll. After all, are you really going to notice that little label on your diddling stick once it's working its magic down below?
So far we've seen our superb sex toy testers increasing their stamina and sex appeal but week 3 is all about using sex toys to shed those pounds!
The Monarch Hands-Free Penetration Silicone Dildo is a unique product that combines a sleek silicone G-spot dildo with a thigh-master style exercise device.
By simply squeezing your legs together; the dildo is pushed upwards. By opening your legs again; the dildo is pulled downwards - perfect penetration every time!
And the best thing about The Monarch Hands-Free Penetration Silicone Dildo is that it has a dual purpose - it gets your thighs toned and ready for bikini season and provides intense internal stimulation too!
Most products here at Lovehoney have a waterproof rating. Whereas some vibrators shouldn't even have the word 'water' mentioned in the same room as them, others could be thrown into the sea, swallowed by a whale and come out the other end still buzzing several water-logged months later (please don't actually do this, we don't want to harm the whales).
But needless to say, it can be a little daunting using even in the most watertight of vibrators in the bath or shower for the first time as we have all had it built into us from a young age that electricity + water = sad face.
Just to let you lovely people at Lovehoney know that this little beauty is TRULY waterproof!!
It's just finished a full wash in the machine and came out fully working, haha!
I wondered what the clunk, clunk was but I just thought it was something from my son's pocket...
So if you wanted to take your PowerHead Rocket 4 Piece Massager Vibrator white water rafting with you, you can rest assured that it will still be buzzing even after being submersed for lengthy periods of time.
See more waterproof vibrators in a range of shapes, sizes, colours and materials.
If you fancy getting sexy for summer, then look no further! Our ace team of sex toy testers were each given a different sex life and body enhancing product and asked to record their results so you know which work and which don't...
Week 2 and our lovely sex toy tester Kaz, has been using the infamous Aeolus 5 Pheromone Spray For Women.
This special spray is packed with pheromone-like ingredients which work on a base level and subconsciously indicate to the opposite sex that the person using it is attractive, confident and fertile.
Featured in numerous magazines, the Aeolus 5 Pheromone Spray has a fruity, youthful and exuberant scent that men simply cannot resist!
Ever since the Mango Juicer arrived at Lovehoney a few weeks ago, everyone in the office has been obsessed with it - and not just because we're big mango fans.
The smooth lines and fluid curves mean that it has become a favourite fondling toy for the creative team - beats having a squeeze of the breast ball.
The IT nerds are confused by it though: "Why does it look like a kitchen utensil?" they ask through a fug of XHTML and SQL queries.
Well boffins, it's designed to look like that so it can be sold in the parts of the world where sex toys are illegal, which also happen to be the places where women are oppressed and victimised.
Which is also why it's the world's first charity dildo - a proportion of the profits from every one sold goes to charity: the Waris Dirie Foundation which campaigns against female genital mutilation, and Forward UK, a women's rights organisation.
Here's a closer look at it:
It's getting to that time of year where everyone wants to flaunt it on the beaches and be as sexy as possible. But where do you start? You could go to the gym... or you could indulge in a little sexercise like our sex toy testers!
Every week throughout May, we are getting one of our fabulous sex toy testers to try out a sexy product that will improve their sex lives in time for summer.
Some are trying to tone their thighs using the latest and greatest sex toy; others are trying to attract a partner through the power of pheromones... But this week is all about stamina and how you can learn to improve yours for the best sex ever!Lovehoney
Whether you're an earth-loving, tree-hugging, can-recycling, Prius-driving hippie, or just someone who's hoping to save a few quid on [cough] bedroom essentials, The Earth Angel could be the sex toy you've been waiting for.
Why? Because the new vibe from Irish company Caden Enterprises is the world's first 100% green sex toy. It's made from totally recycled material and it never needs replacement batteries because its power comes from a patented rechargeable cell.
To get the vibe to work, you have to wind it up using a handle in the base. It's like cranking up one of those Freeplay Radios, only with much more pleasurable results...
Crank the handle in a clockwise direction for 4 minutes and you'll earn yourself 30 minutes of vibrations. If that's more than you need in a single orgasmic session, you can use the on/off button to store up the power for later.
Wind it for 8 minutes and you'll get an hour of vibrations, which is a good job because your arm won't be good for much else after you've been winding like a mentalist for that long.
The Earth Angel is the new eco-friendly sex toy that doesn't need need batteries - to get it going, you just have to wind it up. No batteries required.
Four minutes of winding gets you half an hour of vibration - and a tired arm. Whether that's a fair pay-off for an orgasm that doesn't cost the Earth is open to debate.
