• It's starting to feel so real...In advance of the February 14th film release date, Ellie Goulding has launched the song she wrote for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

    Ms Goulding joins pop superstar Beyoncé on the official soundtrack for the movie, which is shaping up to be a good'un!

    The song, called 'Love Me Like You Do', was produced by Max Martin and we think it has hit written all over it. Give it a listen here:

    What do you think? It's gotten us really excited for the movie! Check out the official trailer below for a sexy preview of Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey...

    14 Sexy Things We Loved In 20142014 has been a BIG year at Lovehoney and while we're already excited for everything 2015 has to hold, now is a good time to look back on an amazing year and, let's face it, get just a tad nostalgic!

    Between landing our own reality TV series, debuting a whole load of exciting new products and launching our own lingerie brand, 2014 has been The Year of Lovehoney in many ways!

    It's also been an exciting year for sex toys in general, with pleasure products getting more and more technologically advanced.

    In what's fast becoming an annual tradition (see 2012 and 2013), here's our round up of the 14 most exciting sex trends of 2014.

    Remember to leave a comment with your favourite bits of this past year!

    Bijoux Indiscrets 21 USB Rechargeable Vibrating Diamond

    There are already as many types of vibrators as there are ways to use them, but we've found a new shape that's so obvious we can't believe it hasn't been done before.

    The Bijoux Indiscrets 21 USB Rechargeable Vibrating Diamond (£39.99) is shaped, you guessed it, like a diamond. It also delivers really, really powerful vibrations.

    Use the pointed tip to deliver precise clitoral stimulation, or let the flat top massage everything from your labia to your neck and shoulders. The possibilities are endless!

    If your lover's been nagging you for some bling this Christmas, this could be the cheeky alternative. It even comes in a presentation box which is great for storage on the days you don't wish to be dazzled.

    Read on below to see this precious sex toy in action...

    christmas tree butt plug in parisNow, we all love a good giggle, but it seems Paris has ended up being the 'butt' of this joke with their somewhat artistic 2014 Christmas butt plug... err, I mean tree!

    Funnily enough though, France haven't suddenly decided to announce a love for all things anal, even though it really does looks like it.

    They've collaborated with American contemporary artist Paul McCarthy (no... not the Beatle. Read it again) to reveal this year's rather eye-catching Christmas tree.

    Featuring a tapered tip, elongated, bulbous body, and flat flared base... Hang on... Does this remind you of something? (Doc Johnson TitanMen Ass Servant)

    We have a feeling that even the most advanced butt plug aficionados out there are clenching their butt cheeks at the sight of this enormous sculpture... We certainly are!

    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!

    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!

    Toy With Me Tuesday: Sex On The Beach

    June at last! Summer is fast approaching and with it comes the lure of ice creams, sunbathing and lazy days on the beach. Instead of a traditional bikini this year, why not give your lover a sweet treat by donning a candy bra and G-string?
