Call Girl Reviews, Sex on TV and Freaky Labia: Lovehoney's Week in Sex News
Did you know that Chloe, the most popular name for a call girl, means 'fertility goddess'?
For more fascinating (and some sordid) research into call girl reviews, check out Dirty Words: A Probing Analysis of 5000 Call Girl Reviews and the follow-up article Life of a Call Girl: Fantasy vs Reality.
Jon Milward also tells us that a new, large-scale piece of research is due to land in the next few weeks on his blog, and it's going to be very juicy indeed: keep an eye out.
Here's what else we've been talking about this week…

- This week it came to light that a couple are suing an airline for taping a dildo to their suitcase. We've tackled the topic of How to Take Sex Toys on Holiday before, but something like this just can't be anticipated. We're horrified.
- Ofcom declares the British public are less concerned about sex on TV. But wait! It's OK, the British still believe their sex lives are the number one taboo topic of conversation. According to research undertaken for O2, 'my sex life'tops the list of things Britons least like to talk about. It seems we'd rather discuss the thorny issues of politics and religion… really?
- This week at Lovehoney we've been busy writing about lots of new lingerie and getting it live on the site. Our pick of the crop this week is the Rene Rofe See Through Lace Gown and G-String Set, a dramatic set that surprised us all by how slinky and smooth it felt.
- Is Thursday the best day to have sex? We asked the Lovehoney Facebook page and the answer was a resounding 'no'. This little factoid seems to circulate the media quite regularly - is it just nonsense? Despite scouring LSE's website, we can't seem to find the source, and any article mentioning the research seems to point to vague comments that amount to 'it's all about sex hormones… or something'. Still, it makes us feel better about Thursdays.
- The vulva is making headlines again and it's great to see so much education and awareness about genital diversity. The latest must-watch video from sex-positive peer educatorLaci Green is on 'Freaky Labia'. She explains: "I talk about how pornography shaped my insecurity with my labia and later learn that I wasn't so abnormal after all."
Wait! That's not everything
