The world of sex and gender is a colourful and wonderful space and today we’ll be getting down to the basics on what exactly that means for different people.
Lingerie has the ability to make us feel beautiful, powerful and, of course, very sexy. It’s incredible what a piece of well-placed lace can do for our confidence, not to mention our sex lives, and at Lovehoney we believe that every single person deserves to feel desirable.
This week Anna is joined by comedian, writer and actor; Catherine Bohart, to talk about exploring sexuality as an adult - be it a newly discovered twinkle in your eye, or a first same-sex experience.
For many trans people who have not had gender-affirming bottom surgery, sex and masturbation can be a minefield. ‘Traditional’ ways of masturbating - especially with your hands - can trigger feelings of gender dysphoria, ranging from mild discomfort to utter revulsion. As the Sexual Happiness people, we at Lovehoney want everyone to have the most fulfilling sex life possible, and sometimes that can mean thinking outside of the box.
Consider yourself sexually empowered or 'bold as brass'? In alignment with your erotic authenticity? Or do you struggle with low sexual esteem? Meet a few remarkable folk past and present who've blazed the trail for self-expression, self-love and badass sexual empowerment.
The rise to power of sex-positive celebrities and professionals has seen social media as a prominent platform to promote and celebrate sexual expression, responsibility, and diversity. Taboos and misconceptions are constantly being blown out of the water. However, let’s not forget the journey that this rise in sexual awareness, gender diversity, and the warm gooey embrace of sexual expression and body positivity has been on, and continues to pursue.

I've been very excited about the move towards creating gender-free and adaptable toys – making gender-neutral sex toys allows pleasure to be accessible to everybody, and broadens the scope of possible experiences.
Giving people the room to explore, unbound by labels or inaccessibility, allows them to prioritise self-love, pleasure and exploration on their own terms.
A little while ago, resident Lovehoney sexperts Jess Wilde and Annabelle Knight produced a fantastic video showcasing some Gender-Neutral Sex Toys for Every Body. It gives plenty of inspiration on how toys can be adapted or used differently to suit different people.
As a pansexual gal, body-neutral toys are a fantastic way for me to create a collection that can be used (safely, with condoms) with any and all of my partners, including myself. It’s also really important to me that my toys don’t resemble genitals to ensure that future partners are never put off by having unwanted body parts in their sexy space.
Here are 5 of my top picks.
