• Following on from our story about Zero Gravity Sex, a Dutch designer has created a deeply groovy gravity-free bed. It's a solid slab that literally hovers in mid air, free of all wires and strings - it's all done with magnets, y'know. So while it won't help you achieve those spectacular space sex positions, it would be a deeply shagadelic addition to any household. The only drawback is the price - a cool 1.2 million euros - and if you've got body jewelery - "Although people with piercings should have no problem sleeping on the bed, Ruijssenaars advises them against entering the magnetic field between the bed and the floor. They could find their piercing suddenly tugged toward one of the magnets" reports Yahoo News.

    We mentioned before that Love Island's Sophie Anderton has been pining for her vibrator. Now poor Sophie's finally snapped: "Sex starved Sophie Anderton threatened to quit ITV's Love Island if producers didn't get her a vibrator. The 29-year-old lingerie model - who said she could go without sex for six months if she had a vibrator - yesterday demanded a sex aid. The stroppy sex-kitten yelled: "I'm really frustrated. Can we be supplied with vibrators? I said if I can abstain from drink and drugs, I can abstain from sex -the problem is my energy levels are so high." The former Gossard bra girl packed a £200 sex aid, but was banned from taking her suitcase with her. She told the others: "I should've brought my vibrator. It's a silent one called The Bone and it's amazing. We need the public to vote in vibrators for the girls."

    Sounds like Sophie is one of those discerning girls that only uses designer sex toys - and naturally Lovehoney has a whole selection of top quality luxury sex toys that would keep even Ms Anderton happy.

    An oldie but a goldie this one - The Dildo Song is an awesome parody of the 1950s Slinky commercials that extolls the virtue of dildos. Made by a bunch of Canadian girls, it is a perfect send-up of the 50s style of advertising - it's in black and white, natch - and their reworked lyrics to the song are hilarious. It's been getting lots of new love thanks to being on Google Video where you can watch it online, or you can download it from the original creators site. Either way, it'll brighten up your day immeasurably - just like a real dildo!

    It's official - sex toys are as old as the human race. The BBC has the scoop: A sculpted and polished phallus found in a German cave is among the earliest representations of male sexuality ever uncovered, researchers say.

    The 20cm-long, 3cm-wide stone object, which is dated to be about 28,000 years old, was buried in the famous Hohle Fels Cave near Ulm in the Swabian Jura.

    The prehistoric "tool" was reassembled from 14 fragments of siltstone.

    Its life size suggests it may well have been used as a sex aid by its Ice Age makers, scientists report.

    "In addition to being a symbolic representation of male genitalia, it was also at times used for knapping flints," explained Professor Nicholas Conard, from the department of Early Prehistory and Quaternary Ecology, at Tübingen University.

    "There are some areas where it has some very typical scars from that," he told the BBC News website.

    Note to gentlemen: Do not try to split flints with your todgers. Thank you. For everyone else, get yourselves the most modern and lovely dildos direct from Lovehoney - we don't have stone ones, but we do have glass dildos and metal dildos if you're after something a bit different. Just make sure you don't forget your dildo...

    "People will be having sex with robots within 5 years". So says no less venerable a source than The Times newspaper, which ran its future of robot sex article a couple of days ago and which has subsequently has been spreading like wildfire around the internet.

    X-Men 3: The Final Stand is currently taking movie theatres all over the world by storm, and X-Men star Rebecca Romijn, who plays Mystique, is causing a bit of a furore herself.

    Rebecca Romijn has told how she loves X-rated sex - and gets turned on by playing a dominatrix.

She is quoted in News of the World newspaper as saying: "I love to be nude and I love sex.

    "Being a dominatrix in the bedroom, sex in cars and in public places all turn me on. And I love fantasizing about being naked on an island with lots of other naked people." (Read more on Starpulse News)

    Now, if Rebecca was in need of some equipment to pursue her dominant ways, we have hundreds of brilliant bedroom bondage items she could use - everything from hand cuffs to blindfolds to whips, crops and paddles.
