Spiders in the shower register highly on many people’s phobia radar. Black, hairy, spindly-legged varmits with 6 eyes and funny feeder things beneath their GIANT FANGS OF DEATH. It’s not a sexually happy image, is it?
Fortunately I’m not scared of spiders, so when Halloween rocks around you’ll find me in the local toy shop stocking up on fake plastic spiders to place between shower bottles, next to plug holes and in random corners to scare the bejesus out of my friends. Nothing funnier than a fully-grown man legging it out of the bathroom because of a plastic spider.
If I start to feel guilty about doing this to my boyfriend (unlikely!), then I might be able to make amends by putting a different kind of Spider in the shower. There’s nothing creepy, crawly or bitey about my Awesome Sex Toy of the Week.
The Spider Hands-Free Male Masturbator is much better than a big old bug in the bathroom…
A brand new male sex toy, coming soon to Lovehoney. Can you guess what it is yet?
If you're craving a mind-blowing orgasm, but haven't quite managed to get yourself there yet, a G-spot vibrator could be just what you need.
G-spot vibrators feature a slightly curved tip that stimulates the sensitive nerve endings of the G-Spot which is located approximately 1-3 inches inside the vagina. With enough stimulation of the G-Spot you can achieve a truly satisfying orgasm, and even female ejaculation.
Lovehoney TV presenter Annabelle uses the Jessica Rabbit 2.0 G-Spot Vibrator to explain the function of these fantastic sex toys:

A violet wand is an electrosex device used to enhance physical awareness, create a sexy tickling sensation or to induce pain when used on higher settings.
On the lower settings the electricity causes a ticklish tingling that heightens physical awareness and feels incredibly erotic, helping to build sexual anticipation and turn both partners on. Higher settings create more pain and can leave temporary marks on the skin similar to candle wax burns.
Violet wands found their way into bedrooms via the BDSM and fetish communities but more and more vanilla couples are discovering the pleasures of using violet wands as an enhancement to foreplay.
It may feel very odd to her that you want to resume a sex life - especially if things seemed to be OK without one - but you need to convey that you’re serious about your desires, and that this is something you’d like to share together.
Has it really been 13 years since Sex and the City introduced the world to the rabbit vibrator?
Since the airing of the now-famous episode, ‘The Turtle and the Hare' (Season 1, Episode 9), millions of women have discovered exactly why Charlotte favoured staying in with her apartment with this vibrator. For years, those tingling ears and squirming shaft have left satisfied women across the world eager to have a 'quiet night in' just like Charlotte.

So, are you ready to move on from your faithful rabbit? With an ever-increasing number of products on the market, you'll soon find out that although a rabbit vibrator's good, there could be something that’s even better…
Those who love oral sex know that the 69 position is a great way of making sure that both partners get all of the pleasure and attention they deserve.
Everyone has a different preference about how they position themselves during 69, who goes on top? Do you compromise and go for it side by side?
Our most recent poll: 'Which is your favourite 69 position?' has ended and we've discovered that Lovehoney customers generally prefer 69 with the woman on top.
55% of those who voted said that they preferred it when it was, 'her on top'.
That's an overwhelming majority when you consider that the slightly easier position of 'side by side' only achieved 27% of the votes and 'him on top' gained just 18%.
Do you agree with the majority? Leave a comment letting us know which is you favourite 69 position and why…
