Many of our first-time anal sex experiences are accidental or ill prepared for at best, giving a poor first-time impression of all things anally sexual. Many couples don’t tend to talk about anal play and as individuals, we’re often quick to write it off, especially if we’ve had a bad experience in the past.
These self-imposed taboos mean that scores of us are missing out on the joy of anal sex and the pleasure that both men and women experience through anal penetration.
This first-time anal sex guide will talk you through anal experimentation and anal penetration, helping you to progressively experiment both alone, with a partner or with anal sex toys to achieve a satisfying anal sex life.
If you're confident in your sexy new outfits, Lovehoney encourages you to upload a photo of yourself wearing gorgeous lingerie and costumes. We love the pictures and other customers find it really helps to see the clothes on real people. Because we appreciate this, each month we choose one Model of the Month to win £100 to spend on sex toys, sexy lingerie or sexy costumes.
Winning the title of January's Model of the Month, and the £100 shopping spree, is LuciousLips. The clever use of the mirror and the fact she was working those angles really showed her boots off to the max! We also loved how she remained anonymous without resorting to a black rectangle over her face. Congratulations!
If you fancy a chance to win a £100 shopping spree on Lovehoney, just upload a picture of yourself wearing sexy lingerie or costumes and check back next month!
Because we had so many fantastic photos submitted during February (was it new Valentine's Day lingerie that encouraged you to get snap happy?) we've decided to also award 2000 Oh! Points to four other beautiful, real people who submitted stunning photos of themselves in Lovehoney's lingerie.
If you're going to be spring cleaning this month, don't forget to spring clean your sex life! It's time for to clean, sort and organise your toy box and while you're at it, why not write a review of your favourite sex toys? Real reviews written by real people are so important to helping you choose the right toy… and they're good fun to read even if you're just window shopping.
To reward the writers of sex toy reviews, we give £100 worth of sex toys to the person who writes the best Lovehoney Review of the Month. We also choose a selection of highly commended reviews and reward them each with 2000 Oh! Points to spend as they wish - or save up for something special.
Review of the Month
Swooping in and receiving the prize this month is The Nymphomaniac who, by our count, wrote an astounding 33 reviews in February! But which review in the particular was it that stole the prize? Her review of the Bondage Boutique Leather Hand Paddle with Studs* gave us a fantastic insight into bondage and provided some tips for how best to use the paddle. "Talk to the hand 'cause the dominatrix ain't listening." Cheeky!
"The strike is firm and makes a thumping noise during impact. You can aim the paddle two ways, one with the palm of the hand which produces a stinging sensation which ripples outwards from the centre of the paddle, and the second with the fingertips which produces a slight whipping effect; you can start slowly tapping the fingertips on your lover to build up the tension."
