Everything feels tighter this time of year. Jeans, purse strings, your lover's generosity…. Jees, the festive season's only just coming to an end, do we have to go on an anti-climatic love spiral just yet? Yes, I accept that we've already been overly indulgent and will continue to be so over the festive period but the end of the fun doesn't have to hone into view just yet.
There's nothing like all of that unadulterated time spent together to give you the yearning for something new and exciting. No offence intended, you're still wanted, but how about mixing it up a bit in preparation for 2011?

It's been a surprising week of lust, monsters and arresting developments in your sex toy reviews this week. But what exactly were the hits and misses, and what bad behaviour would warrant a restraining order? Read on to find out.
This week's sex toy review round up
Enjoying the classic Tracey Cox Supersex Stroker was Satoshi who found that a little bit of lube made for a magic combination. "Add a tiny bit of silicone lube in a wet setting however and this stroker turns into a shower monster!" Read the review.
Writing an excellent, sex boffin review of the Lust Dust Triple Pack with Brush was toycar69. "This works best on a slightly moist surface. One word of warning though: the first moist surface that comes to mind is probably not a good idea, as this stuff is basically sugar." Read the review.
Englishrose pointed out the message of the Wild Orchid 10 Speed Motion Sensor Massager's packaging, which could lead to a spell in prison. "I don't however, recommend following the box's recommendation: "Touch a secret partner just close by…" That sort of thing is liable to get you arrested and slapped with a restraining order…" Read the review.
Got some free time this weekend? Or need to relax after some hectic Christmas shopping? Why not test out some sex toys and let everyone know how it went by adding a new review.
Erotic massage is the perfect way to connect physically and emotionally with your lover, as explained in Lovehoney's video guide to using massage candles. A perfect gift for your lover with the promise of a massage to follow, choose from our high quality massage candles, as showcased by Lovehoney's Annabelle Knight in this weeks Sex Toys TV Highlights.
It takes between 15 - 30 minutes for the candle to melt enough for you to start your massage - you'll no doubt find a way to pass the time. Once liquified, the candle will transform into a slowly absorbing, high-slip massage lotion.
Indulge in Lelo's deliciously scented Flickering Touch Massage Candles. Choose from either Snow Pear & Cedarwood, Vanilla & Creme de Cacao or Black Pepper & Pomegranate to add some fragrant sensuality to your love making.
If you're looking for a unique gift that will be truly appreciated and treasured, give your relationship the gift of incredible foreplay.
In the age of night shifts, school runs and overtime, the pressure is on to fit in as much as we can into as little time as possible, but sex is not somewhere to cut corners. A quick rush and fumble and we're down to the deed? We think not!
Coital speeding is a sexual happiness offence, so it's time to slow down the pace and learn to linger. If you're having issues with self control or find the idea of foreplay a disinteresting prelude to sex, then it's time to consider calling on a little outside help in the shape of these sexy gifts and games.
Above: Are you looking for a sexy gift for your lover? Let Sammi Cole take you through her top picks for romantic sex game gifts in this video guide.
Much hilarity in last Friday's Peep Show when hapless lothario Mark tried to make up for his lack of prowess in the bedroom by introducing a dildo called "Kenneth" into a tentative romantic liaison with Dobby.
Readily identifiable by dildo connoisseurs at Lovehoney as a Doc Johnson Classic Dong, the veiny beast spent the episode languishing in Mark's pants and socks drawer, deployment in his sex tryst postponed by the death of Dobby's ex's mum.
Mark described the dildo as being 9 inches long, but we're not sure that Doc Johnson does a balls-free non-suction-cup dong in 9 inches. 8 inches, yes, 10 inches, yes. But 9 inches? We don't think so.
Perhaps Mark was referring to the insertable length. He could be a connoisseur after all.
Disguised as a torch (or flashlight, hence the name) a Fleshlight is a top-notch male sex toy that enhances masturbation or adds an extra dimension to foreplay for couples. Within the outer casing is a soft and stretchy sleeve that is made from an extremely lifelike material that simulates the unmistakable feel and intense sensations of sex.
If you've never thought about using a male sex toy to aid your solo play, you'll find a Fleshlight will revolutionise your experience. This guide will help you find the best Fleshlight for you - they all offer something different.
