In the vast expanse that is the universe, it’s likely that somehow, somewhere there are planets other than our own inhabited by intelligent and sexy life forms. Aliens have been interpreted in many ways but those central to our sexual fantasies tend to be humanoid in form. My ideal sexy alien is Seven of Nine, a rehabilitated Borg hottie with mega boobs and a catsuit that makes my imagination go a bit haywire. Other classics include Sil from Species, Servalan from Blake’s 7 and of course Doctor Who.
The more advanced cinematic interpretations of aliens become, the better our xxxtra-terrestrial fantasies become. You’ve already seen the Inflatable Alien Sex Doll in my Six of the Strangest Sex Dolls feature, but this budget doll is only one small step for man’s exploration of other-worldly sex.
Intergalactic dating is still a long way off (or is it?), but thanks to this Awesome Sex Toy of the Week, you can take a giant leap for mankind’s pleasure without the expensive rocket fuel bills. The Alien Fleshlight Ice is inspired by ‘This Ain’t Avatar XXX in 3D’ - A sci-fi spectacular set in an alien world that stars Fleshlight girl and adult star, Misty Stone.
Having Sex With a Teddy Bear
Each week, hundreds of people find Lovehoney after searching the internet for solutions to their sex problems.
Our alternative agony aunt Hella answers the questions you were too shy to ask anyone (except Google).
How do I have sex with my teddy bear?
You don’t say if you’re leaning toward furry fetish, you think soft toys offer the best sex simulation platform or you’re just looking for a cuddly companion to get frisky with. Either way around, I can help you to have sex with your teddy bear.
If it’s all about cuddly textures and if you’re a straight man or a lesbian, you may want to think about buying a Teddy Babe Deluxe. These sex dolls are made from soft plush with a squishy fibre filling around their flexible wire frames. They look like woman, they feel like a cuddly toy. With massive boobs and a penetrable pussy, Teddy Babes are an instant fix for furry lovers.
If you have a specific teddy bear in mind that you want to get freaky with, then we’re going to get a bit Red Peter with some scissors, a needle and thread and your favourite dildo, vibrator or male masturbator.

What is Rimming?
Analingus or rimming is simply using your mouth, tongue, lips and sometimes teeth to stimulate your partner's anus and (in the case of a male recipient) his testicles. As the anus has so many sensitive nerve-endings, it can be incredibly pleasurable for both men and women. Lots of couples enjoy rimming during foreplay, or as a sexy accompaniment to oral sex.
Rimming is sometimes referred to as 'playing the rusty trombone', which is when the person who is giving the oral attention also reaches around to the penis and makes rapid stroking movements up and down the shaft. The mouth-to-bottom coupled with arm actions resembles someone playing a brass instrument.
The Rimming Butt Plug
Lovehoney has created the Desire Rimming Butt Plug to exactly mimic the sensation of rimming. It's remote controlled and USB rechargeable, too.
Rated 4.5 starts in reviews, Lovehoney customers had this to say about the Desire Rimming Butt Plug:
"It happily stays in position during foreplay and sex, giving that wonderfully full feeling, while the rimming action stimulates the sensitive nerve endings around the opening."
"I loved the feel of the rimming... It has lovely vibes, good for plug beginners and feels like it's good quality."
"Perfect plug for everyone, beautiful design and intense experience."
Personally, I love erotica. What could be better than a well-written story that gets you in the mood? It doesn’t always have to be fiction, and it definitely doesn’t have to be long. Sometimes a short and subtle erotic poem is much better than a prolonged novel with extensively graphic sex scenes.
It's International Literacy Day today and in celebration I’ve created a short history of erotica with everything from ancient scripts to semi-autobiographical diaries. They might not all push your buttons, but they have ignited centuries' worth of love, lust and pleasure and are still exciting to read and appreciate today.
Whether you’re into dominance and submission, seeking tales of debauchery and prostitution or looking for a classic love story there’s something in the genre for you… after all, we have the whole history of the written word to explore.
Ball gags are a must-have accessory for every dedicated BDSM player, but the taste of some rubber ball gags can be a little off putting. You can choose a silicone ball gag to ensure that your gag will taste neutral or you can try something a little different thanks to the Awesome Sex Toy of the Week.
This innovative ball gag has a nice big ball measuring 2 inches in diameter to ensure the mouth is securely muffled and a highly adjustable PVC strap to hold it firmly in place. The ball is attractive, decorative and best of all - edible.
The Kinklab Jawbreaker Gobstopper Ball Gag is made using a retro gobstopper sweet in place of the ball making bad-tasting ball gags a thing of the past.
One of the questions we hear most at Lovehoney is ‘How do I introduce bedroom bondage to my partner?'
Bondage equipment has a habit of looking a little bit scary as the classic fetish style tends to revolved around heavy leather and metal. For the tentative experimenter, diving into the deep end with locking restraints and hefty buckles can be a bit alarming and sometimes uncomfortable. So what is the best equipment to start with?
Established soft bondage company Sportsheets have developed a new range with beginners in mind called Sex & Mischief - a collection of bondage restraints that are easy to use, non-threatening and still offer the full bondage experience. Each product in the range comes packaged in a classy package with some fantastic lifestyle product photos which convey the appeal of dabbling with S&M without making it feel scary or porn-esque.
Read on to find out why this is a great bondage range for beginners and more experienced practitioners alike…
Have you seen the Spider Realistic Male Masturbator yet?
The Spider is a fantastic hands-free masturbator that's revolutionising the way that men experience pleasure during masturbation. Instead of having to use your hands, (or resort to some bizarre techniques to hold the toy in place), you can stick the Spider safely and securely - exactly where you want it.
Check out the Lovehoney TV Spider teaser video below for a sneak-peak:
The unique suction cup can be attached to any flat surface allowing perfect angling for maximum satisfaction. But that's not all; Spider has also been designed with a realistic vagina opening and internal texture too, for even greater pleasure.
The Spider Realistic Male Masturbator is available now, exclusive to Lovehoney!

Review of the Month
"This teeny, tiny bottle will probably make you foam at the mouth with rage, considering what you will probably have paid for it. But be of good cheer, my friends, for this teeny tiny bottle will last you for the next millennium. You literally need a TINY amount in order to trip the light fantastic. The guidelines recommend a 'pea-sized amount' but that was too much for me…"
