Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby got hands-on with sex toys on This Morning today, as sexpert Tracey Cox gave advice on three of the most common sex problems.
Two couples explained their troubles and were given practical solutions by Tracey, while one woman explained how she had never had an orgasm despite her best efforts. Tracey Cox recently suggested Magic Wand Vibrators in her Closer Magazine column, so it came as no surprise that a mains-powered wand was her top suggestion to help Lynn achieve climax.
Tracey explained how it's worth trying a mains-powered vibrator, even if conventional vibrators have failed in the past.
The couple with a mis-matched sex drive - where he wants to have sex several times a week, while she'd be content with sex every few months - were offered some great advice to help bring the couple's sex drive into alignment. Tracey emphasised the importance of cuddling and working on an intimate connection that would hopefully satisfy both partners.
As well as Tracey's advice to increase intimacy and desire, we think something like the Tracey Cox Supersex Sensation Stroker (a sleeve that enhances hand jobs and can be used by either partner on him) would help give him the release he wants, while at the same time involving her in his solo pleasure.
The final couple featured had encountered the common problem of finding it difficult to resume a fulfilling sex life after the birth of a child. To exercise the pelvic floor and get the body used to penetration again, Tracey suggested the Supersex Toner Balls from her own sex toy and sexual health range.
At 6:45am on Saturday, Alice, Gemma and I were bleary eyed and loading ourselves and several cases into a car for a trip to Bristol. We’re not usually awake at that hour or working at the weekend but we made a special exception for Eroticon 2012, the first erotic conference aimed at writers, reviewers and sex bloggers.
Held in central Bristol, Eroticon 2012 was jam-packed with speakers and delegates from all walks of life, each with their own take on erotica and ideas about how to transform their passion into a career. Photographers, sex toy reviewers, erotic authors, performers, publishers and bloggers convened on both sides of the stage to impart knowledge and share experiences to help delegates hone their skills and spark their imagination in a series of thoughtful seminars.
As sponsors and dedicated sex toy enthusiasts, we brought along a selection of toys and treats to share with delegates and spent our time chatting to attendees, allowing them to get hands-on with some of our favourite products. Unfortunately this meant that we missed almost all of the talks and demonstrations but we had a great time mingling with delegates and speakers and we definitely enjoyed electrocuting them all with the Neon Wand. Bzzt!

We brought along two tables filled with fun including Rock Box, the Bedroom Kandi Music-Activated Vibrator, Minna Ola, Sqweel and of course… Baconlube. Our table was rarely quiet and by the end of the day the batteries were running low, the Sliquid lubes were half consumed and our contact book was bulging full with email addresses of future reviewers. We really loved the friendly, vibrant atmosphere and the open attitude everyone had with us and one another. Thank you to everyone who took the time to chat with us…
The inaugral awards by the UK's leading publisher or erotic fiction, Xcite Books, were set out to acknowledge and celebrate the best companies, bloggers, reviewers and sex experts who value and support the erotica market.
Nominations and voting were open to the general public, and it's thanks to our wonderful customers, reviewers and community members that we were able to win this brilliant award! The award will be presented at Eroticon 2012, a conference for authors, bloggers and sex writers, in Bristol on 3rd March.
Thank you to everyone who nominated and voted for us, and also to Xcite Books - we couldn't be happier!
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.
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).
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."
