Second week of September? Where does the time go…?
If you're desperately holding on to the remnants of what was a fleeting summer or trying to forget that Christmas is fast approaching, then the only cure is distraction! And what better way to distract yourself than to get involved in the Lovehoney Community Forums!
There has been lots of discussion over the past week on some fantastic topics ranging from lingerie to lap dance! So here are the best bits for you to take a look at:
Although the competition has now ended, the Caption Competition - Win a Fleshlight thread is packed with great quotes for a good giggle! The perfect topic to brighten up a dull Monday morning!
Everyone has had sex to music at some point, but if you're looking for something a little different, check out the Sexy Basslines thread for some top recommendations. From German industrial to American hip-hop you're sure to discover something new to try your moves to!
Need some lingerie help? Come to the forums and see what advice the community members can offer! This past week there has been discussion of the best PVC/latex lingerie that can be worn as outerwear as well as underwear!
We are all very excited here at Lovehoney about the fantastic The New Joy of Sex book!
Not only is it fabulously presented, but it's been updated to encompass all the things that modern couples really want to know about.
The wonderfully detailed chapters explore the all important topics of clitoral pleasure, contraceptives, sex toys, lingerie, bondage and even female ejaculation.
Susan Quilliam, relationship psychologist and sex expert, was given the opportunity to add her expertise to the updated book.
Susan works with the International Journal of Family Planning, the British relationship counselling organisation Relate and innumerable global advisory boards in the field of sexual health and dysfunction, so is more than qualified to undertake the huge and prestigious job of updating the best-selling sex manual in the world!
I caught up with Susan and asked her all about the book and her opinions on sex toys and relationships.
Durex has just released the exciting new Play O Female Orgasm Gel in the UK and they're going out of their way to promote it and their other new ranges all over the world!
Firstly, Play O featured alongside Lovehoney's very own Love Bunny Vibrating Mini Massager in the most recent issue of More magazine.
Play O was listed as the best for increased sensation and the Love Bunny is touted as the first and best online sex toy!
If you fancy trying Play O for yourself then pick up a bottle from Lovehoney! This orgasm gel is created by women for women using a combination of ingredients designed to stimulate and bring you the most intense orgasms you've ever experienced!
A SHORT DISSERTATION ON AN ALMOST INFAMOUS JAPANESE LUBRICANT
A Report by Carly "Pleasure" Drew
Tenga Real Hole Lotion is a 170ml tube of clear, water-based lubricant designed for use with the Tenga Flip Hole Masturbator but can also be used for regular masturbation and sex, too.
The packaging matches the general style of the Tenga range - sleek, smooth and classy. This is what I consider myself to be, apart from on a Friday night when I'm doing the robot and singing along to Abba.
Standing the tube up-right provides fascinating visuals as the air bubbles slowly float to the surface. This is an effect that I like to call the lubricant lava-lamp phenomena.
The "Real" statement in the title of the lubricant is supposed to refer to the realistic sensations it provides. It doesn't smell very real, unless your vagina happens to smell rather floral, but I won't hold that against Tenga Real Hole Lotion as it's actually a rather pleasant aroma.

A SCIENTIFIC STUDY ON THE TASTE, TEXTURE AND SIDE EFFECTS OF AN INTIMATE LUBRICANT
A Report by Carly "Pleasure" Drew
Sliquid Swirl Glycerin Free Blue Rasperry Flavoured Lubricant is a 125ml bottle of clear water based gel which looks somewhat like bubble bath. I love a good bubble bath, especially whilst eating marshmallows, so this particular taste test already seems promising.
The short, rather cute looking bottle has lovely graphics and a lid that matches the packaging. This co-ordination of colours pleases me, especially as I notice that it also matches the bottle of water and tissues sat on my desk. I will put them all together to create a lovely display for anyone who chooses to visit me in my corner of the office.
Upon opening the sealed bottle, there is a faint, yet delicious fruity scent. I am slightly perplexed at the name of this product as it is listed as "blue raspberry". From my previous research, I would have assumed a blue raspberry was in fact a blueberry. However, the smell is more of a general berry odour and, depending on your preference, can be assumed to be raspberry, blueberry or even blackberry.

THE MERITS AND OPPOSING VIRTUES OF A GERMAN ERECTION IMPROVEMENT CREAM
A Report by Carly "Pleasure" Drew
Penix Active Size Up Cream is a 75ml tube of opaque cream, similar in consistency to that of a mushy banana that's been sat in the glove compartment of your car far too long. The unassuming tube is navy and black in colour with a white screw top lid. The only graphics, aside from the text, is a black and white photograph of a rather muscular man with a mass of pubic foliage. He has subtly covered his weiner with his own arm.
Upon opening the sealed tube, there is a faint smell of cinnamon. This is most pleasurable and reminds me of cinnamon swirl pastries, leading to symptoms of hunger and daydreaming.
My theory is that this penis enhancer, although delicious in scent and rather dull in consistency, will have a taste that is similar to eating a bowl of Cinnamon Grahams (now known as Curiously Cinnamon - a tasty wholegrain cereal that is dusted with cinnamon that gives you such a sugar-rush you can see through time itself).
