We read recently on the blog of Dr Brooke Magnanti (better known to some as 'Belle de Jour') that it appeared someone was attempting to have her very comprehensive advice on how to stay anonymous online removed.
Lovehoney has regular contact with a lot of sex toy reviewers and bloggers who wish to retain their anonymity for all sorts of reasons. At Eroticon 2012 we met with a lot of (for want of a more nuanced term) sex bloggers - some who wanted to stay entirely anonymous, some that were happy to use their full real name and even those, like Zoe Margolis, who had been outed against their will.
We sincerely hope the post remains up at the original blog and are re-posting the blog as per her request so that this information stays in the public domain.
There are few things as expensive as sex furniture, sex dolls and sex machines in the sex toy world. These intricately detailed pleasure givers take a lot of thought, craftsmanship and effort to put together as well as a bulk load of materials. It’s no wonder they cost a pretty penny.
Every now and then a mould breaker comes along that sticks a pointy tongue out in the direction of convention, leaving me WTFing in the most splendid of ways. This week's Awesome Sex Toy combines two of the most expensive sex toy types available and slaps a surprising price tag on it to boot.
Did you know that an estimated 70-80% of women require clitoral stimulation to experience an orgasm? That's massive.

Check out 10 of our top 100 clit vibes, and don't forget to add a female orgasm booster to your basket too, to aid arousal and increase your clitoral sensitivity.

Massage is not only thought to be the best method of seduction, it’s a comforting and bonding experience in its own right - whether or not it leads on to more intimate activities. It’s not difficult to give a soothing and sensual massage even if you’re inexperienced. Apply a fragrant oil or lotion, warming it in your hands first, rather than dripping it straight onto the body. Be guided by your partner as to what feels good for them. And for safety, don’t work directly on the spine or dig into muscles too deeply - use a gentle or medium pressure.
There’s a lot to be said for the novelty factor when it comes to sex toys. As the writer of many of the Lovehoney product descriptions, I get to see and manhandle a lot of sex toys. Looking back over my previous ASTOTW posts, it’s clear I have a special fondness for quirky design.
Doc Johnson may be a little late to get Vac-U-Lock aboard the novelty train, but this week’s Awesome Sex Toy makes a great case for fun also being practical. I introduce to you the Doc Johnson Vac-U-Lock Knuckle Up Duster Plug (£8.00). RAWK!
If you’re a fan of the Vac-U-Lock range then you’ll be down with their special plug system. Each harness, handle and machine features one of their standard plugs, allowing you to use their wide range of Vac-U-Lock dildos, vibrators and anal tools with any of their suckers, harnesses and other plug-based paraphernalia.
The trouble with this is that the longer it goes on, the more pressure we can put on ourselves (and if we don’t, others will, as you describe!) And pressure is one thing the female body does not respond well to.
