    But first for inspiration, authors are frequently asked what inspires their characters. Beth Kery explains that she had several sources of inspiration for the main characters in "Because You Are Mine".

    Francesca Arno

    "It’s often the young and innocent who see most truly, and that’s certainly the case with Francesca. I wanted Francesca to be strong and talented despite her naiveté—an unpolished jewel that Ian immediately recognises as being priceless."

    3D Printing Sex ToysThese days technology is advancing at lightning speeds. Making tech sexy and sex techy is always part of the equation.

    As soon as they invented a 3D printer people began scanning everything they ever wanted replicated. We knew it wasn't going to be long before someone 3D printed something adult oriented.

    Will 3D printing revolutionize your sex toys or is it still catching up? That's what an XBIZ poll asked sex toy manufacturers, and the majority said 'Yes!' to revolution.

    We've been using a 3D printer at Lovehoney HQ for some time now in our product research and development department. Imagine your very own sex toy design coming to life through this process. If you submit your design to our Design a Sex Toy Competition, your prototype could be printing at Lovehoney HQ really soon! Hurry though! The deadline for entries is 16th September.
