Us women do love to dress up, but after our reckless teenage years we abandon the absurdly tiny skirts and all-hanging-out tops that we championed during our first years of adulthood and seek a more refined and sultry look when out on the town. When Summer arrives, hems creep upward and the bust line plunges, making getting ready to head out much more fun and acceptingly raunchy. Flesh is key and the more you can flash without the trash, the better you feel about yourself.
We've taken this to heart at Lovehoney and that's why we're stocking more translatable garments than ever. If you're looking for a sexy ensemble that will rock the club as well as the bedroom, then take a look at our From Dusk Till Dawn recommendations without a vampire costume in sight.
Just one day into Lovehoney's General Erection 2010 and Nick Clegg has thrust his way into a big lead. The Liberal Democrat leader's popularity, buoyed by his dashing appearance on the first Leader's Debate, extends as much to the bedroom as it does to the (mass) debating chamber.
Conservative leader David Cameron is trailing a disappointing second on 29%, while Gordon Brown is bringing up the rear on just 24% of the vote. Cast your vote by buying the General Erection Love Ring - for just 10p.
Votes cost 10p till midnight 21 April, then cost 25p on 22 April.
For some of us, the words, ‘role play’ send a shiver of excitement down our spines; for others, it’s more a chill of fear that reminds us of uncomfortable team-building exercises.
But using role play in the bedroom is about much more than indulging your long-held and unspoken fantasy about that traffic warden who once fined you.
By adopting a different persona, many people find it easier to open up and explore situations and practises that they would never normally broach, allowing them to experience greater fulfillment and also bringing them closer to their partner.
But how do you get into it without feeling a little, well, ridiculous? Well, just read on below to see not only how you can choose the scenario (and outfit) that's right for you, but how to fully enjoy your foray into the world of character play.
Above: Want to know how role play can increase your sexual confidence? Lovehoney's lingerie expert, Sammi Cole, explains in this video.
In the past month Lovehoney has gone costume crazy with a plethora of sexy and stylish ensembles turning us onto the idea of playing dress up. Roleplay is still a relatively new concept in most relationships and I want to lift the veil and get intimate with the idea of dressing up for sex.
Roleplay is an exciting and easy way to inject some new passion into your sex life. I'm not talking about a quick fumble behind a Jack-O-Lantern at the annual Halloween bash, but planned scenarios involving dialogue, plot, characters, props and costumes.
