Lovehoney's bestselling Sqweel Oral Sex Simulator has made its cinematic debut in French language film "L'Amore Dure Trois Ans" (Love Lasts 3 Years) directed by Frédéric Beigbeder. That's right, the sex toy in L'Amore Dure Trois Ans is a Sqweel!
The man holding the Sqweel in the film's trailer comments, "It's obviously a woman who invented this to ruin a man's life." How wrong he is though, as the inventor is none other than Mr Trevor Murphy!
You can see the Sqweel in L'Amour Dure Trois Ans trailer below at around the 1.28 mark.
Merry Christmas everyone!

It's a little known fact that the Lovehoney office has its own indoor putting green. (No, really.) With such a unique office feature, it might not come as a surprise that the company is home to several prolific golf players.
One enthusiast is Customer Care Manager Matt Oxford, who recently captained a Lovehoney-sponsored team in a charity golf tournament raising awareness and much-needed funds for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
The hours of practice on the astroturf must have paid off as Matt's team won the day.
Congratulations to Matt and all who played and raised money for the cause.
Lovehoney also donated a prize to the winning team… the details of which remain a closely guarded secret!
Things got a bit hot on ITV's flagship daytime show, This Morning, with sexpert Jo Hemmings dishing out her top sex tips for a better love life and, with the help of two frisky 60-somethings, demonstrating the best positions for lovemaking.
Jo's top tip was to "introduce toys to the bedroom" and demonstrated the brand new Lelo Insignia Tiani (£60.00) - a remote controlled vibrator that's designed to be worn by the woman and controlled by her partner.
If you want to watch the segment, you can watch The Sexperts Talk Libido on the This Morning website.
Lovehoney's range of limp penis packers were seen on BBC Three's recent documentary Sam and Evan: From Girls to Men.
The programme followed Sam and Evan as they undergo the process of changing their bodies from female to male. As part of the journey, Sam and Evan were filmed as they browsed Lovehoney for "some help in the trouser department" and were later seen customising a packer into a STP (stand to pee).
With a range from a very realistic extra small limpy packer to an extremely sizeable extra large packer, Lovehoney's selection of packers are able to give you the exact shape and size bulge you want.
One customer review of the Limpy Packer Extra Small enthuses, "I would like to say thank you for being a UK site that offers limp packers. As a FTM it was great as my first packer, it felt and looked totally real. It made me feel a little step closer to feeling like the real me, as I finally had something that looked and felt like it should have always been there. So once again a huge thank you."

If you're looking to live a sexier life, help is on hand in the shape of Lovehoney's very own 'Orgasm Angel' Bonny Hall. Interviewed in November's edition of Cosmpolitan, Bonny reveals how she selects the toys that she hopes will change the sex lives of women across the country.
"Sexual happiness has such an impact on our lives, and the best part of my job is hearing from women who have achieved orgasms when they never thought they could. When we get a product right, it can be life-changing."

If you watched The Only Way Is Essex this week, you would have seen Nanny Pat helping to set up Jessica's new lingerie shop.
Straight-talking Nanny Pat can be seen 'sorting out the drawers' before finding some Tracey Cox sex toys included in the delivery.
First out was the Tracey Cox Supersex Mini Rabbit Vibrator (£14.99) which, in the hands of Nanny Pat, caught everyone's attention.
As Jess tells Mark that they'll be stocking sex toys in The Wright Look, their joint lingerie venture, the Tracey Cox Supersex Super Bullet Vibrator (£16.99) is passed to Mark, who started to look slightly uncomfortable with the idea of his mum, sister and nan selling sex toys. Despite Mark being slightly sceptical of the idea the TOWIE women looked completely unfazed by the idea.
Finally, after Mark had left, a Tracey Cox Supersex Twin Silicone Vibrating Love Ring (£9.49) was pulled out by Nanny Pat, who promptly remarked, 'It's got a battery to it and all! Wow!'
Straight talking and to the point, you've got to love her for that!
Lovehoney's first ever television ad airs next week, kicking off our new campaign to encourage people to 'Live a Sexier Life'. As the first ever sex toys advert to be approved for daytime TV in the UK, it's a breakthrough in terms of the nation's attitude to sex and pleasure. Featured in the Telegraph (twice, and again!) and the Daily Mail it's already provoking intense debate - especially in comments sections like here on AOL Lifestyle, on Twitter and in blogs.
If you want to see what all the fuss is about, watch 'The Kiss' below. Let us know what you think in the comment section, or Tweet us @Lovehoney with the hashtag #TheKiss.
