1. 5 Ways to Upgrade Your Sex Toys This Spring

    How To Upgrade Your Sex Toy Box

    Even though the nights are getting lighter, for many of us, the prospect of that long-dreamed-of summer holiday still seems like a far-off fantasy.

    But a new season needs a new sex toy, especially when the nights are getting shorter and steamier.

    I've always been that friend who is recommending toys to everyone in the group chat, but sadly being the one who is the most experienced in finding sexual happiness means people very rarely throw recommendations my way.

    I'm sure many of you are in the same boat as me, where you have lots of toys, lubes and lingerie that still hit the spot... but a little upgrade never hurt anyone.

    Therefore, I've put together some of our hit-the-spot classics and offered some new upgrades for you try to this season. You know what they say: out with the old and in with the new.

    Lovehoney Peppermint Flavoured Lubricant 100ml

    Luxurious Lubes

    If you have...Lovehoney Enjoy Water-Based Lubricant

    You should try... Lovehoney Peppermint Flavoured Lubricant

    Most of us have a nice basic lubricant that never strays too far from the bedside table; it's trusty, reliable and, most importantly, does the job.

    However, that doesn't mean we should always play it safe. Introduce a bit of tingle into your sex-life and you won't regret it.

    Not only does this lubricant make sex and foreplay extra-comfortable, it also tastes good and tingles in all the right places.

    Switching out your lube is a small change that can make a big difference.

    Lovehoney Hourglass Black Mini Dress

    Lavish Lingerie

    If you have...Lovehoney Sheer Ruffle Bra & Crotchless Skirted Thong Set (or any of the other beautiful bra sets from Lovehoney)

    You should try...Lovehoney Hourglass Black Mini Dress

    There's no better feeling than that confidence you get when you're wearing a sexy bra set and you're ready to strut your stuff in the bedroom. But, sometimes, it can be a little intimidating to venture out of our comfort zones and into something a little more daring.

    Lovehoney's range of mini-dresses are super sexy and come in a range of different styles and colours, ensuring there's something to suit everyone. Whether it's fishnet, lace or cut out, these mini-dresses are certain to give you the confidence to take control in the bedroom.

    There's plenty of opportunity for men to slip into something more daring, too – why not give the LHM Microfibre & Mesh Boxer Shorts a go? These are perfect for wearing in the day, whilst still being seductive in the bedroom.

    Bigger, Better Bondage

    Bondage Boutique Black Rose Pleasure Spanking Paddle

    If you have...Bondage Boutique Soft Bondage Kit

    You should try...Bondage Boutique Black Rose Pleasure Spanking Paddle

    Whether you've enjoyed every single part of the soft bondage kit, or only parts of it, you'll be aware of how much fun experimenting in the bedroom can be.

    Introducing a spanking paddle into your sex life can seem like a big step, but believe me, you won't ever look back.

    The tension that builds as your other half runs either the padded rose print fabric or the smooth leather across your naked body will drive you wild.

    Sumptuous Sex Toys

    Lovehoney Dream Rabbit 10 Function Silicone Thrusting Rabbit Vibrator

    If you have...Lovehoney 10 Function Bullet Vibrator

    You should try...Lovehoney Dream Rabbit 10 Function Silicone Thrusting Rabbit Vibrator

    A bullet vibrator is where most women begin their quest for sexual happiness, as it's small and discreet.

    While you can reach the 'big O' with a bullet, we all know that the more intense the stimulation, the more intense the orgasm can be, so why stop there?

    Investing in the Dream Rabbit Vibrator is bound to blow your mind.

    With the different settings on the rabbit ears and the thrusting shaft hitting that G-spot, it could definitely make that 'O' the biggest yet.

    Fifty Shades of Grey Relentless Vibrations USB Rechargeable Remote Control Egg

    Extravagant Eggs

    If you have...Lovehoney Basics Vibrating Love Egg

    You should try... Fifty Shades of Grey Relentless Vibrations USB Rechargeable Remote Control Egg

    Love eggs can be a great toy to enjoy, both on your own or with a partner. They can really increase stimulation in a discreet and intimate way.

    Upgrading to an egg with a wireless remote control allows you to take the intimacy and control to the next level. Your partner can control those vibrations, leaving you finding it hard to keep your composure - and that doesn't just have to be in the bedroom.

    Some also come with a clitoral stimulator as well, taking the experience to an entirely new and exciting level.

    Trying one of these upgrades is bound to put a spring in your step this season without delving too far into that overdraft. If you can offer any other upgrades from some of these classics, then please comment them below. I'm sure I'm not the only one who could do with a few recommendations to liven up this next term.
