Using a vibrating cock ring is a great way to enhance pleasure in a relationship. Not only do they provide toe-curling vibrations for both partners, but can also help to improve the quality of a man's erection. They come in an assortment of shapes and sizes, all of which are designed to stimulate different erogenous zones in different ways.
If you've been wondering how to use them, Lovehoney TV has created a video to explain the ins-and-outs about the best ways to use a vibrating cock ring:
You don't have to spend a fortune enjoy vibrating cock rings. If you're new and looking for something to get you started, try out the BASIC Sex Toys Love Ring for just £5.99.
It may be an idea to keep taking yourself to the brink and then deliberately stopping before you climax - the difference being that you’re keeping control and stopping before you want to, rather than having to stop because it gets too sensitive to continue.
Vibrating cock rings are a best-selling sex toy and tend to be one of the first toys couples try, and it's easy to see why.
Just like non-vibrating cock rings, the vibrating versions reduce blood flow out of the penis, which can help boost size, hardness and stamina. Plus, the added vibrations stimulate your partner during sex.
And despite the name, you don't even need a penis to enjoy one! Don't believe us? Take a look at our guide to making the most of your cock ring here.

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.
