• Stone Dildos, Rectal Dilators and Olive Oil Lube: The Long History of Sex ToysThe thing about working at a sex toy company is that conversations about inflatable butt plugs and vibrating cock rings become everyday occurrences, and even products as innovative as the Sqweel Go (left) become nothing out of the ordinary.

    Earlier this week, however, I took a moment to marvel at the sheer range and variety of products Lovehoney stocks - thousands upon thousands of dildos, butt plugs and cock rings - and it got me thinking about the human urge to seek sexual pleasure. The amount of technical expertise and hours of planning that go into developing each bullet vibrator begs the question - do orgasms, rather than money, make the world go round?

    Think about it. We can trace porn back 35,000 years, while the wheel made its first appearance about 6,000 years ago, and money didn’t come into common use until about 2,500 years ago. Clearly, our ancestors had similarly one-track minds.

    With the advances in sex toy technology (the Violet Wand comes to mind), it’s easy to forget that our generation aren’t the first to use sex toys - not by a long shot!

    Toy With Me Tuesday: Silverware

    Looking for a sex toy worth its weight in silver? We love how the njoy Pure Plug Stainless Steel Butt Plug (£59.99) blends in with the silverware in this shot, and its 5 star review suggests it has plenty of other great uses...

    Celebrity Sex Appeal: Lingerie Inspired By Beyoncé, Miley and More!One of my favourite threads on the Lovehoney Forum has to be Lovehoney Model Doppelgangers. This is where community members (and staff!) point out models they've spotted on Lovehoney that look strikingly similar to celebrities.

    We've found doubles for everyone from Holly Willoughby to Una Healy from The Saturdays (left)!

    Recently however, while browsing the new sexy lingerie or best selling lingerie pages, I noticed outfits, not faces, that reminded me of celebrities.

    A slinky bodystocking reminiscent of an Iggy Azalea outfit perhaps, or maybe a corset named after Beyoncé. Could these chart-toppers be getting fashion inspiration from our range of sexy lingerie?

    In the spirit of fun, we've put together the top six sexy outfits inspired by A-listers like Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga. Check out the selection below, and be sure to add your thoughts in the comments!

    Sex and Horoscopes

    Ever wondered why some people have so much sex appeal, or why other people love a bit of kink in the bedroom? It's written in the stars, of course!

    It is always interesting for us to see how our sales are affected by the month in which people were born. We see clear trends that certain star signs will splash out on high-end bondage gear whilst others prefer dressing up to tying up. After looking at our physical sales trends, we were intrigued to see what else is affected by star signs in the bedroom.

    A few months ago, we asked you to take our sextrology survey, and it certainly yielded some interesting results. You can see our findings below, combined with information we got from our sales data. Cast your eyes over the list to find your own sextrology report, or use it to pick your perfect partner!

    Do you believe your sexual makeup is down to astrology? If not, perhaps you'll see something here to make you change your mind...

    Toy With Me Tuesday: Coffee Break

    Vegetarian and Vegan Friendly Sex Toys: It's Easy Being Green With Lovehoney!This week is National Vegetarian Week in the UK, which got us thinking about vegetarian-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 (left, £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 veggie tips to the comments!

    Toy With Me Tuesday: How Do You Like Your Eggs?

    Here's an eggcellent way to spice up your morning! TENGA eggs are somewhat of a legend in the sex toy world - hidden inside the hard shell is a textured masturbation sleeve that's perfect for solo or couples play.

    Check out our Beginner's Guide to TENGA Toys for more information or pick up the TENGA Egg Wavy (£9.99, above).
