I don't know about you, but my wallet starts to feel a little lighter at this time of year. The first hint of sunshine and I'm planning my entire year around seeing more of it. I get home from work on pay day and the searing heat and yellow light hitting my favourite seat has me high on anticipation for the summer, out comes the laptop and BAM! I've spent HOW MUCH?
I picked up on this article in The Daily Mail advising that a bedtime story is the perfect aphrodisiac!
“Seven in ten men regularly read to their wives and girfriends to help them relax before going to sleep, a study found.” Where are these men? I'm jealous! Ah, apparently only 64% of men in the South West of England do this, hmph!

Day two of the General Erection Campaign and Nick Clegg has consolidated his position as the party leader you'd most like to have sex with.
The Lib Dem leader has a 45% share of the bedroom vote, with David Cameron (30%) inching further ahead of Gordon Brown, who's back in third on 24%.
Cast your vote for which of the party leaders you'd most like (or least dislike) to have sex with by buying our special General Erection Love Ring for just 25p - normal price, £1.99!
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.
While stocks last, our amazing best-selling BASIC Vibrating Love Ring (RRP £1.99) is available as a super-special General Erection Love Ring for a frankly bonkers 10p. Yes, just 10p!
But wait, there's a catch!
To buy the ring, you have to admit which of the three would-be Prime Ministers you'd most like to have sex with - or least dislike to have sex with, as the case may be.
Will it be Gordon, David or Nick - the nation decides!
Votes cost 10p till midnight 21 April, and then cost 25p on 22 April.Julie Peasgood
This situation must be incredibly frustrating - and not just sexually. It sounds as though you’re being very patient - perhaps a little too patient.
