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.

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.

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.
If you're baffled by basques or confused by corsets, Lovehoney's easy lingerie guidewill explain everything. Armed with this information, choosing the perfect lingerie to make you or your partner feel sexy and confident should be easy.

We also explain the different types of knickers, thongs and G-strings as well as sex-on-legs hosiery (from stockings and suspenders, to bodystockings and tights).
Reviewing a counter and dice game the (S-E-X Dice Game) was the aptly named chipNroll. Making a fantastic point about erotic games she says, "nobody wants their brain to be their hardest working organ during a sex game." So did it hit the mark? Read the review.
