• Genital Piercings - From 'Oh Holy Mother of God, That Hurt' to 'Wow, That's Sexy!'

    Shoving a piece of metal through your delicate parts will never sound appealing but the promise of extra stimulation, easier orgasms and more intense sensations is definitely tempting.

    Both men and women get genital piercings and do so for a variety of reasons. Some just like the way they look, some like the extra sensations they create and others use it as a shiny, silver indicator of "hey, lick here!"

    Genital piercing has been practiced for hundreds of years (that's how the Prince Albert piercing got its name after all) meaning that the art has advanced in leaps and bounds but it has also wrongfully led to urban legends and fact becoming intertwined in some warped story about how your uncle's, best friend's, sister's, post man got his penis pierced by a witch doctor and then his arse fell off.

    So to prevent your arse falling off (or any other appendage) make sure you separate fact from fiction* before you consider your first genital piercing.

    Men - Tell Us About Your Testicles and Win Prizes!

    The fabulous and glamorous Serial Mistress recently created a blog called “things you never knew about sex and love…” and I have to say that it gave me more than a little food for thought.

    So, take this as your call to arms: Lads, tell us about your testicles! Ladies, tell us about your bloke’s testicles!

    Tingletip Electric Toothbrush Clitoral StimulatorMany men and women have experimented with household objects whilst exploring their sexuality and it’s not uncommon to hear of ladies enjoying anything that gives a good buzz - mobile phones, the washing machine, even their electric toothbrushes!

    Powerful and oscillating, it’s no wonder that so many women turn to their electric toothbrush in their time of need! As these things aren’t specifically designed for intimate play, using them can lead to injury or your beloved piece of vibrating technology ceasing to work.

    Don’t take the risk of ruining your brand new toothbrush head and purchase something small, discreet and specifically designed for erotic usage instead.

    Collars are a visual symbol of submission and control, and are often worn in the bedroom (or fetish club!) by submissive partners to indicate their position. Collars can also be practical, often with hardware to allow leads and other restraints to be attached to them.

    One of the questions we get asked a lot here at Lovehoney is “How do you buy a bondage collar?” This comprehensive guide aims to answer all of the questions that arise when you think about this seductive form of restraint, providing you with the information needed to enjoy collar and leash play with every sub and slave you meet!
