Porn is well discussed in the blogosphere, with information readily available on everything from the best scenes to how to become a porn star.
In fact, some of the most frequently asked questions to our experts and on the Lovehoney forums revolve around porn which shows, yet again, that it is a popular subject with many issues surrounding it.
One of Lovehoney’s fans asked:
“My boyfriend watches a lot of porn and I think it’s starting to rub off on our sex life. He keeps bringing weird moves that he’s seen online into the bedroom and I’m not sure what to make of it. Help!?”
Rather than just point to our regular tried-and-tested advice, we thought we’d get the opinion of fabulous male sex blogger, Jake of Facts and Friction, to help out with this tricky situation…
Jake of Facts and Friction explains:
Porn can be great fun, and we all know it certainly has its uses, but it's important for everyone to remember that porn scenes are much more of just a visual performance than a how-to guide. With this in mind, lets discuss what porn can teach everyone, and what should stay firmly behind the screens…
I’d say half an hour maximum - but preferably only 20 minutes. Cock rings can be great for sustaining erections, but dangerous if left on for too long.
A few weeks ago we ran a survey to find out whether the following statement was true or false:
"The left testicle usually hangs lower than the right on right handed men – and vice versa."
Of course, these statements originally arise from scientific study but who really wants to revisit the topic of testicles every couple of years to make sure that the statement still rings true?
Well, we do!
That’s why we ran the ‘Let’s Talk Balls!’ survey and gave away three fantastic Lovehoney VibraExciter Mobile Phone Vibrators for Men to thank everyone for their ahem hard work.
The results were fascinating and somewhat verified the statement, but not entirely…
The left testicle hangs lower than the right on the majority of right handed men but it is also the left testicle that hangs lower than the right on the majority of left handed men as well.
You can also see that the second highest result was right handed men with their right testicle hanging lower than the left.
Now, we would expect to see this as there are more right handed people in the demographic that we surveyed than left but, and let me put the lab coat on for this, this still means that the original statement cannot be conclusively proven entirely true or entirely false.
Taking the lab coat off again, what this means is that each set of testicles is entirely unique, like a beautiful snowflake or a fleshy lumpy butterfly. Or something like that…
Thank you to everyone for your entries and congratulations to our winners Siandlinda, SH.1988 and peggedman.

Morbidia is known as the 'Vampire Queen' and lives her days as a true-to-life vampire and internet hottie.
From the history of vampires to the media's sometimes unusual portrayal of these creatures of the night, there isn't much that Morbidia doesn't know about the subject of all things gothic! In her blog, Der Kuss Des Vampir, the lovely lady covers everything from long distance love to domination, from Nosferatu to lingerie.
So, with the Twilight books still flying off the shelves and the arrival of the brilliant new Tantus Vamp Silicone Dildo, we thought we'd get in touch with the Queen of Darkness to get the low down on why we find vampires just so damn sexy…
I lay in my bed; it must be coming up to 1am by now.
Halfway between the land of the living and being dead to the world, I feel a presence above me, an essence of a being, one that’s not warm blooded.
I can feel the cold emanating from their very skin. Before I am able to defend myself, I feel a sharp pain, a bite to the neck and a surge of lust and hunger for this being that’s gaining life from the very blood that runs through my veins; Vampire.
For you to feel confident, it’s vital that you’re fully informed about your health. Make a list of all the questions you have in your mind, and ask your GP.
As women, it is expected that we are just born with the innate knowledge of how to walk in high heels.
Well, I’ve got news for you sadistic shoe manufacturers; we ladies don’t come into the world with that skill.
In fact, the first time a woman dons a pair of sky-high stilettos she will inevitably twist her ankle in the first few minutes and then continue to walk like John Wayne.
With books, YouTube videos and magazine articles dedicated to the topic of walking in high heels, you’d think at least one of them would give you some genuine advice suitable for footwear virgins as well as the more experienced stiletto wearers… but it appears not.
Starting with kitten heels and progressing upwards to 6 inch stripper heels, we thought we’d give you honest advice from someone who used to live in skate trainers for 18 years but is now Lovehoney’s very own high heel evangelist!
