With the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey showing no signs of abating, and pioneering kinksters like Bettie Page soaring back into the limelight, couples all over the globe are opening their minds (and bedrooms) to bondage.
Couples often ask us how they can inject some kinky fun into their bedroom adventures while maintaining intimacy and romance. Understandably, for some couples, the hard leather and steel look just doesn't do it for them.
Realising that there's still quite a big jump in the product market from 'no bondage experience' to 'beginner's bondage', as well as a tendency for fetish styling to be a bit intimidating (even if the products themselves aren't) we decided to do something about it.
We're very happy to announce our new bondage brand, 'Tease by Lovehoney'; a range of sensual bondage products made from inviting materials and designed for absolutely anyone to use.
So whether you're new to bondage, or know your stuff but want to bring the romance back, read on to discover why Tease by Lovehoney is a perfect addition to your toy box.
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...
A lot of you lovely readers will already know who I am, but for those of you who don't, let me introduce myself.
I'm Jess; Lovehoney's in-house Bondage Expert. With a background in burlesque, pin up modelling, fetish event promotion and being a bit of a pirate-goth hybrid, my transition to Bondage Expert has been pretty easy!
As you can probaby imagine, I see a fair share of niche products, and every day have something new and fantastic on my desk. It's through personal research, experience and a keen interest in all things unusual that have led me to learn a tonne about a wide range of fetishes.
Every week I get asked questions about bondage and kink, but there are some questions which crop up (grooaan!) more often than others. That's the inspiration for this blog.
Every month I'll be taking the most common (or most interesting!) questions and answering them here.
Got a burning question about bondage, S&M or another fetish? Comment below and your question could be answered in next month's blog.
We received 150+ new user photos during March alone, and lots of you took this opportunity to get in the mood for spring and flaunt your floral favourites. Picking just one winner has been tricky, but we did it!
The clocks have changed, the weather is (slowly) improving, and the scent of spring is in the air. With the Easter season just passed, it seems that fate has conspired to treat us to a fab bunny-based review for this month's top product review prize.
PleasantDisarray explains what she loved about this vibrator, as well as offering tips on how to make the most of it (even when you live with housemates):
"To be honest, prior to trying this toy (and after about four years and a dozen toys I've owned before) I wasn't even sure I had a G-spot. This proved me wrong! The shape of the head and its position relative to the ears was absolutely perfect for hitting everything at once."
"I've discovered that its possible to have orgasms that don't have an end and just become the next level up of pleasure."
"It slips in with remarkable ease and, due to it's scientifically designed shape, seems to dive into position like a well trained marine ready for action."
"For me, my first experience was fantastic. Did I experience a mega-O? I didn't. Did I experience multiple dry orgasms? No. But what I did experience was something I've never felt before that has changed my sexual self awareness forever..."
"Although I have the 'natural' version and not the G-spot version, I found that it hit my G-spot with ease, bringing me to a mind-blowing, multiple orgasm within minutes - my husband is amazed at how fast I can climax with this toy and it has become something that we use together, as well as a little treat for me when I'm on my own."
"Without gushing too much (excuse the pun!), I absolutely love this toy. It looks amazing, it feels great, and it will give you the most amazing orgasms within minutes."
