1. Could a Holiday Transform Your Sex Life? Plus, Win a Flash Vibrator!

    Lovehoney Flash USB Rechargeable Mini VibratorAs the cold weather continues in the UK this week, many people have started planning holidays to banish those February blues.

    If you're lucky enough to go on holiday with your partner this year, be prepared to return home with more than just a tan - a new survey reveals that 28% of couples think their sex life improved after taking a holiday together.

    Going abroad doesn't mean you have to sacrifice home comforts. Even sex toys are getting more travel-friendly. The Lovehoney Flash USB Mini Vibrator, released just last week, is ideal for travel. Rechargeable by USB, completely discreet and detachable, there's no chance of this powerful toy starting to vibrate in your luggage.

    To celebrate the release of the Lovehoney Flash USB Mini Vibrator (worth £29.99), we're giving a lucky reader the chance to win one! Simply comment below before Friday the 22nd for your chance to win.

    Read on below for the best travel related sex news from around the internet.

    • As mentioned above, a new survey suggests that travel can improve your sex life. The study of 1,100 people concluded that couples who travel together have better sex and tend to stay together longer than those who don't, while 72% think travel inspires romance. Do you think going away on holidays has an impact on your sex life? Do you feel more romantic while abroad? [Travel can improve couples sex life - USA Today]
    • Lovehoney Enjoy Water-Based Lubricant SachetThe Lovehoney Flash Vibrator is ideal for bringing on a romantic holiday because it looks just like a USB flash drive and once the lid is removed, it won't vibrate. However, you can also travel with other sex toys in your luggage - just remember to remove batteries from any vibrators, or use the travel lock function, if there is one.
    • Due to liquid restrictions, it's no longer possible to travel with a bottle of lube in your carry-on bag, so pick up a few sachets of Lovehoney Enjoy Water-Based Lubricant (right) before you go. LELO have some good tips about putting your toys in hand luggage. Are you comfortable flying with sex toys? [Tips and Tricks: Travelling with Sex Toys - Lelo]
    • While the excitement of travelling to a new country and shared experience of sightseeing clearly contributes to an increase in romance, there may also be a biological reason why we feel more aroused during a sun holiday. Analysis of internet searches show that our libido peaks in hot weather and again at the dead of winter. Are you more likely to have sex during warm weather? [When Temperatures Go Up, So Does Our Libido - United Academics]

    While sex on holidays is clearly very popular, we would advise to wait until you actually get to your destination before stripping down - sex on aeroplanes may get you in trouble, and you don't want to attract looks like these:

    The winner of the luxury Valentine's bundle from last week was Gareth. Remember to comment below for your chance to win a Lovehoney Flash USB Mini Vibrator (worth £29.99)! The winner will be contacted by email.

      Wedding anniversary coming up so this would be a nice addition for our weekend break ;)
    • Paul Sanderson: February 16, 2013 10:27
      Completely agree, especially if you go somewhere hot. Nothing like a bit off sun on the skin to get you in the mood. Give you great memories to get through the year and planning your next little excursion is a great conversation.
    • Cassie: February 16, 2013 10:31
      We have a month in Thailand in June and have just got engaged...Holidays always spice things up but I think this one will be special!
    • Jayne Davies: February 16, 2013 10:38
      A weekend away is good for recharging the batteries.
    • Paula: February 16, 2013 10:42
      Id take it with me, but I could also use it while I work ;)
    • RedCheeks: February 16, 2013 10:49
      Nothing like getting away from the everyday routine to get you in the mood :)
    • Deborah Astbury: February 16, 2013 10:55
      Oh my what a great invention, its like the old "Martini" advert .. anytime, anyplace, anywhere !
    • SelectZen: February 16, 2013 11:00
      great little invention, real travel friendly :-)
    • MrsVirago: February 16, 2013 11:36
      It's my 12th wedding anniversary this week but because of major stresses in our life, neither of us feel like celebrating. hopefully this will help (providing the dog doesnt get hold of it!!).
    • Imogen: February 16, 2013 12:25
      Wish the OH and I could afford a holiday! Been about 4 years since we've been away anywhere together.
    • Gemma: February 16, 2013 12:30
      i'd love one of these for our late honeymoon to egypt this year xx
    • dan: February 16, 2013 14:51
      Looks nice, been after a rechargeable vibe for a while so this would be a nice addition to the toybox:-)
    • AliMc: February 16, 2013 15:54
      Travel can improve your sex life? I'm in a long distance relationship, so travel is unavoidable, and our sex life is incredible!
    • Daimion: February 16, 2013 18:09
      Well this will be my first time abroad ever, So what better way to get our weekend break off to a bang then this lovely little toy for the Mrs
    • Kellymichelle: February 16, 2013 18:42
      After a very long day at work, a holiday sounds great. Even just a couple of nights away, or a night in the hotel down the road!
    • Nymeria: February 16, 2013 19:12
      Ooh, I'd personally love to be part of the mile high club but don't think it's as easy as it sounds lol.

      Wonder how this toy would measure up to the Mia. :)

    • claudia: February 16, 2013 19:13
      I need this! Weekend in Amsterdam coming up soon :D
    • Purring Tiger: February 17, 2013 00:40
      USB toys are great, would love to try one of Lovehoneys own creations of one!
    • HappilyExperimenting: February 17, 2013 07:36
      That's advert's great, I'd love to particpate in some hanky-panky on a plane but I think it'd attract more disaproval than buying condoms and a cucumber at your local supermarket!

      I'd love to see how the new LoveHoney USB vibe measures up to the Lelo Mia, LH's glass creations have impressed me in the past but will quality be preserved despite the price gap between Lelo and Lovehoney?

      I plan on taking a tourist's holiday to London - not very sunny I know, but I burn easily anyway :) My toys, of course, will find a special place in my luggage and I might indulge in a noisier toy seeing as I'll be alone ;)

    • Ady: February 17, 2013 08:53
      Would love a Holiday just me and the wife, But the children come first in that respect. Hope i win, :-0
    • MissTerryCleavage: February 17, 2013 10:38
      Have something on the simmer with a guy and we're talking about camping at the F1 at Silverstone, this fab new toy would ensure we joined in with our own va-va-voom without waking up the entire campsite ;) (Assuming I was gagged obviously)
    • Silverdrop: February 17, 2013 10:46
      A 50ml bottle of Liquid Silk, a 25ml bottle of Durex Play O, and a discreet travel vibe are my essentials when travelling by air. While I wouldn't particularly care if airport security saw me travelling with an obvious sex toy, there's very little privacy from other passengers in the security line. For the sake of travelling families, I'd rather not have a realistic penis dildo going through x-ray.
    • SophieM: February 17, 2013 11:44
      I'm off to the States in a few months, albeit with my family so no obvious sex toys are being whisked away with me...you know, just in case my luggage gets randomly searched which always seems to happen to me! Four whole weeks without a toy though, however will I manage? One of these brilliant new USB vibes would be fantastic, no one but me would know that it's really a nifty vibrator in disguise - that is unless the airport staff also shop on LH, in which case, well, who really cares? :)
    • rag doll: February 17, 2013 12:33
      was pnly thinking the other day about going away with my partner and what toys we would take. i love my Julian Snelling rose bud butt plug but i think it might set the alarms off...especially if i were to wear it at the airport :/
    • Dean: February 17, 2013 13:05
      Lol what will they think of next?!
    • neil diddams: February 17, 2013 13:26
      This would be great to take on holiday, just hope no one asks to borrow it to save a file!
    • maltedmilk: February 17, 2013 15:08
      Must be why my grandad made so many babies in Jamaica! Hehe xxxxx
    • fizzy: February 17, 2013 15:26
      I love the video!
    • Fluffbags: February 17, 2013 15:37
      I definitely feel hornier in summer.Its time to get out the little skirts, the warm skin, the toasty bedroom so you do not have to hide under the duvet because your freezing your tush off. Seem to have more energy too. I do agree that sunshine and warmth increases my libido.
    • rach74: February 17, 2013 16:51
      i go on hols in may this would be great in my case
    • Hazy: February 17, 2013 17:00
      Nothing beats a rechargable toy, other than one that can be charged by USB! and they are so much easier to hide in the luggage when travelling!
    • triso: February 17, 2013 19:01
      Would love a NICE LITTLE usb VIBE.
    • Kathryn: February 17, 2013 19:48
      great minds think alike - just the other day I was wondering if I could get hold of lube sachets, rather than bottles, for less faff with airport hand luggage. But would it still need to go in my sandwich bag of liquids?
    • fist: February 17, 2013 22:46
      i was going to try and sneak my lelo mia with me on holiday but then i thought, 'youre going for 4 days, i'm sure you can do without'!

      would love to try lovehoneys take, as is generally really similar in quality

    • steve: February 17, 2013 22:55
      handy for work
    • Ash: February 17, 2013 23:39
      Ooh I'm wickedly excited about this little number! ;D
    • Lovehoney Nicole: February 18, 2013 00:36
      @Kathryn: I think sachets still have to go in the plastic bag, but the Lovehoney ones are super discreet - nobody would know what's inside unless they look closely.

      I've travelled with the small bottle of Liquid Silk (www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=7164) in my hand luggage before and it just looks like face cream or moisturiser - security were none the wiser!

    • Martin: February 18, 2013 07:50
      A USB vibe is a great invention. Simple and discrete as it just looks like any USB flash device.
    • Kevin: February 18, 2013 07:54
      Always relax on holiday, not worried about an late night, so this would be a lovely addition to are holiday
    • Cat Lady: February 18, 2013 11:00
      Looks good.

      Don't think I would take such things in hand luggage though. Not exactly going to need it on the plane!

    • del: February 18, 2013 13:30
      i love to win one
    • Jen: February 18, 2013 15:17

    • James-Dean Summerfield: February 18, 2013 23:38
      Wish i could whisk my fiancee away on hols, it's bloody freezing in our flat. Guess we'll just have to find another way to keep warm :P
    • Necromancer: February 19, 2013 01:35
      I'm never without my PC, this would be perfect. :D
    • Becky: February 19, 2013 12:56

    • claire turner: February 19, 2013 13:02

    • Bianca: February 20, 2013 10:43
      Being new to lovehoney and not owning any toys this could be a good start to our collection!
    • Blacksilk: February 20, 2013 11:12
      Every picture I see of the Flash looks amazing, it definitely looks the part! Hopefully I can win one, because I'd love to see if it feels the part too!

    • Mike: February 21, 2013 14:22
      A weekend away really works, especially if you both take your mind off all the day-to-day drudgery. Unfortunately it doesn't work so well if you take the kids with you...

      So we're having a weekend at home but with the kids away... so we just need to keep our minds off the normal stuff!

    • Lisa: February 21, 2013 17:36
      Amazing for those awkward moments in the office!
