    Vegetarian and Vegan Friendly Sex Toys: It's Easy Being Green With Lovehoney!Are you one of the 20,000 Britons taking part in Veganuary by trying out a vegan lifestyle for January?

    At Lovehoney we're committed to being as ethical as possible, which got us thinking about vegan-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 (pictured, £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 vegan sex tips in the comments!

    You can get involved from the comfort of your own home and dodge any sales-induced injuries by doing your sexy sales shopping online.

    Still tempted to leave the house? Allow these GIFs to take you on a journey of realisation as you discover nine valid reasons not to.

    What Should You Get Him for Christmas? Quiz

    Although generous to a fault, Santa draws the line at sexy gifts, leaving it up to you to cross 'sex toy' off your husband or boyfriend's Christmas list.

    Undoubtedly your partner's perfect stroker, love ring or prostate massager exists somewhere within Lovehoney's toy trove. But with so many to choose from and limited alone time for clandestine purchasing, it's important to shop smart. That's why we've created this quiz!

    A mere seven questions will funnel you from magnitudinous multiple choices to a single perfect product. Each of the potential recommended gifts are top-rated toys so as to minimise the chances of a poor choice.

    Just be careful your lover doesn't already have the recommended item. If they do, simply give the quiz another go with a few altered answers.

    What Couples Toy Should You Get This Christmas? Quiz So, you ask your special someone what they want for Christmas, and they give you this sweet-but-useless reply:

    What Should You Get Her for Christmas? Quiz

    Sex toys are emotionally charged gifts, conveying how intimately you know your lover’s tastes and desires, and thus sex toy gifts at Christmas can be a tricky business.

    Get it right and you’ll be showered with praise, compassion, and most of all, sex, while a moment’s misjudgement can cause embarrassment or even offence.

    Never ones to stand idly by while their fellow humans suffer solo, we’ve created this helpful quiz to help you come up trumps with the perfect toy for your lady.

    Seven questions will expertly steer you through the choppy storms of confusion to the beachy inlet of understanding, with a perfect pleasure purchase revealed at the end.

    There are eight products that could be potentially turned up by our diagnostic algorithm.

    Each one is a top-ranking best-seller on the Lovehoney site, minimising the likelihood of a poor pick. Just make sure your lover doesn’t already have one and you’re a shoo-in.

    Sexy Lingerie Christmas Gift Guide Quiz

    Buying sexy underwear for your wife or girlfriend can seem like a totally daunting task. From bustiers, to basques, bras to bodystockings, it can be incredibly difficult to determine not only what your partner would like, but what would suit them, and what they would feel most comfortable wearing.

    Luckily, we've created a simple and stress-free way to determine what kind of lingerie your lady woud love for this festive season: a quiz!

    Containing seven questions (and not an algebraic formula in sight) that will determine your lover's likes and dislikes, this Christmas questionnaire will do all the hard work for you, and offer the perfect present from our lingerie collection based on your answers.

    All you need to find out before you take the quiz is your partner's bra and dress size (which you can do by having a quick snoop at the labels in her underwear drawer), and pick one of the multiple choice answers for each question to reveal your sexy solution.

    Bondage Boutique Almosta 4Posta Under The Bed Bondage Kit

    As you can probably imagine, working for an online sex toy retailer (and the biggest in the UK, I might add) comes with some pretty interesting job responsibilities.

    Between practicing orgasm faces with colleagues, deciding whether something is actually NSFW for other workplaces and writing 'To Do' lists that would make even Masters & Johnson blush, we still have a little time left for other fun (totally work related) things.

    You may have noticed that Bondage Boutique has recently undergone a makeover and is now speckled with lots of lovely new images and a pair of brand spanking new models - literally!

    Most of the the time, when you see photos of bondage gear it's a shot of the product on its own, which can make it hard to visualise the kit actually being used.

    Alternatively, when bondage product images involve a model, they very often end up super pornographic. *Sigh*

    So we were given the challenge to re-shoot our top-selling Bondage Boutique products on models without making it look like Lovehoney were branching out into 'adult DVDs', and with nothing to go on except our own (brilliant!) ideas.

    The shoot lasted 3 days and, as Lovehoney's resident bondage expert, I was on hand to make sure each product was photographed in its best light, accurately, and that the models felt comfortable and safe.

    To give you a little insight into my job and the general goings on at LHHQ, I've compiled some of my favourite behind the scenes outtakes for you to enjoy...

    Retro bingo hall

    Sex toy brand names are a broad-ranging bunch. For every Belladonna’s Bitch Fist or Anal Fantasy Ass-gasm, there is the milder Starlight Gems or Pearl Shine.

    In fact, some feature terms so mild that many of your friends and co-workers could be repeatedly referencing sex toys without even knowing it. What a fan-flipping-tastic opportunity for a game of Sex Toy Bingo.

    If you’re having a slow week at work, now’s your chance to pally up with a colleague for a head to head battle of the sexy-terms.

    Alternatively, if you don't feel like risking your career and reputation you can also get your game on with a partner or housemate while watching the new series of The Apprentice.

    Print out these two bingo sheets, pass one along to your friend, and prepare to listen like you’ve never listened before.
