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.
