For many people, there are few things more mortifying than the idea of someone hearing them masturbate.
While there's no reason to be ashamed of masturbation at all, the social stigma, fear of a certain reputation and many other reasons mean that most people would rather keep their private pleasure just that: private.
University is a time of juxtapositions. A wealth of nightlife and no money to explore it, a world of academic study and no time to embrace it and, for many, a new horizon of sexual possibilities and far too little privacy to comfortably enjoy them.
Statistically, university is one of the most common times for a woman to start experimenting with masturbation and sex toys, but it is also frustratingly often one where privacy is at an all time low due to the paper thin walls and eternal uncertainty about who's in the house.
That’s where this handy guide comes in, to help you maximise your potential you-time whilst minimising the need to worry about nosy flatmates asking awkward questions.
Wednesday saw the opening ceremony of the 2016 Paralympics in Rio, and in true Olympic fashion, it blew us all away.
But when the athletes aren't hard at work breaking records in track and field, they're busy breaking beds in the Olympic village, with nearly half a million condoms being distributed throughout both the Olympics and the Paralympics.
Though it's often perceived that there's something of a taboo around sexuality and disability, we Lovehonians strongly believe that sexual satisfaction should be available for everyone.
So with this in mind, we've trawled through 194,000 of our customer reviews to find the finest recommendations for differently-abled pleasure - all as chosen by you.
With over 148,000 reviews and counting, there have to be a few perks for all that typing, right ?

This time around we're rewarding SomersetBiGuy for his descriptive first hand experience of our no:1 best seller; The Lovehoney BASICS Penis Pump. Not quite the size of the tardis, but working wonders for this shopper.

Fantastic feedback, SomersetBiGuy, your voucher is on its way. Enjoy!

We have reached that exciting time once again, with our popular Review of the Month giveaway!
Every month, one lucky reviewer is rewarded with a £100 Lovehoney voucher to spend on anything they like, right here on Lovehoney. This time, crazy couple have popped their review cherry by inviting a monster into the bedroom in the form of Lovehoney's Mega Mighty 3 Extra Inches Penis Extender. From the sound of it, this one is very welcome under the bed, in the wardrobe, or wherever you usually find your fantastic beasts!
"I followed the guide of plenty of lube (on me and inside the sleeve), squeezed the air out and let it suck me in. I have to say, it felt pretty bloody impressive holding this in my hand and there is no doubt from the guy's angle it makes you feel like a well hung porn star! It felt very comfortable and a few strokes confirmed that it does feel less sensitive than just my hand, which was the goal." Read the full review here.
Well done, crazy couple, we hope to read more from you soon!
