Ever feel like your sex life could do with a bit of a kickstart? It's natural in relationship to fall into the same routine night after night, but luckily there are plenty of ways of spicing up your fun with minimal effort.
Sexy role play is a wonderful way to get out of a rut in the bedroom, and it's a great opportunity to try some new moves and techniques you may have been too shy to broach otherwise.
Putting on a sexy costume helps you step out of your own shoes and into another character, with a new set of personality traits and fantasies. In fact, in our recent Forbidden Fantasies survey, 59% of women said they were turned on by the idea of role play.
Don't know where to begin with role play, or worried you'll feel silly? We've outlined the most popular scenarios below to help you take the leap, along with the props needed to make the fantasy a reality.
Election fever gripped the nation yesterday as voters turned out in their millions to determine the next tenant of 10 Downing Street. With queues running out the door at some polling stations, most of us viewed the task as our democratic duty rather than a pleasurable playtime, but perhaps we just weren’t thinking creatively enough...
For yesterday’s secret ballot, Lovehoney member naughtboi had a second secret hidden away - a Lovehoney Sensual Glass Butt Plug. A small, 4-inch plug with a flared base to guard against unwanted travel, naughtboi’s review mentioned how the size and shape means the plug is ideally suited to wearing out and about, and discreet enough to go unnoticed:
“Perfectly made and easy to insert, and best of all is it's a great size for just popping in and going about your daily business... As soon as it arrived I cleaned it and popped it in and went down to the shops and then the polling station to vote and no one knew I had it inserted.”
Giving a whole new meaning to the term ‘independent party’, naughtboi’s solo fun proved voting doesn’t have to be dull - think how this could improve the turnout for 2020.

Nothing beats sexy lingerie when it comes to bedroom seduction, but after the first wear it's easy to throw everything in one drawer and forget about it, only to be met with a bundle of tangled stockings and bras next time you want to dress up.
If you've taken the time to hand wash and dry your sexy underwear, it's a good idea to spend an extra couple of minutes putting it away properly, too.
In fact, you can extend the life of your lingerie with a few tweaks to how you store your pieces.
Our lingerie expert Gemma has outlined some easy ways to sort and store your lingerie below so you can keep your favourite pieces ready for action at a moment's notice!
As you probably know, the Lovehoney Returns Policy is pretty legendary. We're happy to go the extra inch by offering you a replacement or refund for 365 days after your purchase, for any reason.
That's right! We're happy to accept your returned items even if they've been opened, worn or used, because if you're not happy, we're not happy.
Customers often send in a note or letter with their returned orders explaining exactly why they want a refund or replacement, which can be hilarious, sad or (if we're honest) border on TMI.
Our returns department recently received a pair of nipple clamps in the post with an enclosed note that may be the best we've ever seen!
See why we were blown away below, and find out more about our award-winning returns policy here.
What is a ball gag? A gag is a type of bondage equipment designed to muffle the submissive partner during BDSM play. Although there are many different types of gags, ball gags are by far the most popular. While many couples are intimidated by gags at first, after trying it out they often find it adds an exciting edge to Dominance and submission play.
Ball gags come in several different styles and offer varying levels of restraint. It's important you choose the right gag for you as some are great for beginners, while others are best suited to advanced S&M explorers.
Lots of couples want to explore new ways to excite their partner and stimulate each other's senses to their full potential during foreplay, but when you've already exhausted the tools Mother Nature gave you, it can be difficult to know what to move on to next.
Experimenting with sensory play such as erotic massage, temperature play and light spanking is a great way to instantly turn up the heat on your pleasure. If you're brand new to this kind of play, you might like to start with something a little less intimidating, like a feather tickler.
Unlike other types of sensory exploration which can require a certain level of skill or confidence, feather ticklers are the perfect balance between invitingly soft and excitingly new, whilst still being wonderfully easy to use.
