We're over half way through October and I'm loving every minute of it!
Not just because of the falling autumn leaves, the dark evenings and the almost-but-not-quite festive spirit, but because the blogosphere is alive with the sound of sex (squelchy)!
From sexy Halloween goodies to hot girls in coffins, from unusual sex toys to saucy Twitter updates, this week's blog round-up is full of the greatest news stories you can find online.
I did warn you last week that as Halloween approaches I get more and more excited! This week my Halloween searches have led me to some strange and wonderful places indeed. My first stop was over at College Candy where I couldn't help but agree whole heartedly with Brianna and her post 'Note to the Guys: Bring the Sexy This Halloween!' This year it's all about getting men into sexy Halloween costumes. I'm thinking firemen, police officers and, it might just be me, mechanics - there's just something about them I can't get enough of!
Something that definitely ticks the strange category, comes from the News:lite site. Apparently an Italian company that makes coffins has launched it's very own sexy calendar for 2010. Beautiful, scantily clad ladies and, er, coffins. It's what wet dreams are made of!
This article on the Cracked site explores 18 of The World's Most Disturbing Sex Toys and had me laughing quite a bit. Examples include the Goo Gobblin' Granny, The Cannon and my favouriteThe Drippy Dragon. I must say, I had a lot of fun on this site. I really recommend taking a look at some of their other posts while you there as they are brilliant.
Another follow on to last weeks blog regards Twitter. My Twittering ability seems to be coming on leaps and bounds (follow me @HoneyHarrie if you like) and it's all helped by good advice such as the 10 Things You Should Never Tweet After Sex on the Asylum site. Thank you Asylum for your great and funny advice!
Bringing up the subject of sex toys isn't always the easiest thing to do, especially if it's something you or your partner have never discussed before.
But if you're worried about offending them, or nervous about revealing your own personal kink, don't worry - we've got the top do's and don'ts from the Lovehoney experts to make adding sex toys to your relationship a breeze.

As part of Lovehoney’s ongoing battle against the vacant, doe-eyed, plastic-fantastic lingerie models that grace every magazine, product shot and television shoot, we have created what we lovingly call ‘Lovehoney’s Real Top Models’ and September’s winner is the simply stunning Kitty Karen.
The Lovehoney team have just arrived in Berlin for the fantastic, naughty, erotic and downright pornographic Venus show!
The top names in sex toys, lubricants, lingerie, bondage, fetish and film gather here every year to swap cards, mingle and generally do business. So naturally, Lovehoney had to make an appearance!
Although Lovehoney aren't exhibiting, we have been wandering around talking to new suppliers, trying to get great deals on the most brilliant sex toys around and showing off our fantastic new sex toy - the Lovehoney Sqweel Oral Sex Simulator!
Keep checking the Lovehoney Blog over the next few days for video and photographic updates and all the saucy goings-on at Venus - including the entire Lovehoney team trying to ride (steady!) a giant I Rub My Duckie!
When choosing a sex toy, the material is just as important as the power, price and function.
What feels good for one person won’t feel so hot for another, some people have allergies (such as a latex) and others are eager to avoid phthalates. Whatever your reasons for being interested in a certain sex toy material, we try to make it as easy as possible for you to find the right toy for you.
Now, we're not ones to toot our own horn here at Lovehoney but it has received some quite major acclaim from all over the blogosphere, so thank you to everyone who blogged about it - good and bad - we appreciate your honesty!
If you've got a blog post that you'd like to see feature in my weekly blog round-up, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
So the Sqweel - 10 Tongued, Oral-Sex Overlord has finally arrived and I couldn't be happier! Lovehoney have finally cracked that last problem in the puzzle when it comes to sexual simulation, and that's oral sex. Gone are the days when oral sex was a solo disaster. Gone are the days of begging and pleading for some cunnilingus action. With my Sqweel it no longer matters. Not convinced? Why not read this review of it on My Sex Professor? Debby Herbenick gives the low down on the product of the moment that's got everyone talking. Already got one? Why not read my top tips before reading Ambers orgasmic Sqweel pointers on Scarlet's Letter? You can thank us later!
Halloween is fast approaching and I cannot wait! Trawling through the internet, I found so many Halloween related goodies that my mind now boggles with ideas on what to dress up as. I did really like this post on Jezebel and I couldn't agree more that If You're Going to Wear a sexy Halloween Costume At Least Be Creative. It's all very well and good going as a Vampire but after the whole Twilight/R Pattz swooning that's overcome the majority of girls recently, you really won't be the only one sporting pointed teeth and a white face this Halloween. Not that there's anything that wrong with the classic costumes, but like these sexy ladies on Gizmodo, there is so much you can do to make your outfit unique.
I also found these two sites which are NOT sexy! Coilhouse are showing the Scariest Workout Video Ever Made, which isn't so much scary as it is really quite funny. I want to work out to it! And then I found this on Internet-d: Sexy costumes for dogs. I cannot believe something like this actually exists!
I recently joined the crazy world of Twitter, and I must say after spending the first few weeks baffled by it I'm finally getting my head around it (follow me at honeyharrie if you fancy an insight into my Lovehoney world!) and I would probably go as far as saying I'm becoming slightly addicted. I somehow managed to find this site, Historical Tweets, which had me stifling laughs at my desk as I tried to hide the fact I was having way more fun then I should be when its work time. I particularly like the Gandhi tweet 'Punched an old lady today. Feel bad.'
I can't help but feel sorry for men a little bit. What with the ranges of highly equipped sex toys out on the market, and now even the Sqweel to replace their tongues, I can't help but feel men are feeling a little bit neglected and probably,ever so slightly threatened by our love for all things designed to buzz, pulse and get us off. So I suggest they read this blog post entitled 'Toys Are Your Friend', on Ojoy for a little bit of reassurance, because lets face it, my vibrator never calls, has not once offered to take me out and is nothing like the real thing!
And finally, just for fun, have a read of these hilarious penis haikus. They are brilliant!
