Another week has flown by and the blogosphere is set to burst with sexy stories!
It's my job to sort the leather from the PVC (this is the sex toy industry's version of 'sorting the wheat from the chaff') and bring you the best sex blogs and naughty news stories from around the world.
I love this sexy vibrator chandelier featured on The Frisky. I'm not sure how practical it would be, seeing as it's made from quite a few silver plated vibrators, and I'm guessing my Gran would be a bit shocked when she came round for a cuppa, but it's definitely a conversation piece!
You may remember from a few weeks back that we launched the UK Sex Map. This genius device allows you to pick any place in the UK and examine their sexploits. For example, I'm originally from Hungerford, Berkshire, and us lot apparently spend the most money on sexy shoes and boots which, considering my vast shoe collection, is very true!
OkCupid, a popular American dating site have done something similar to the UK Sex Map. OkCupid asked a series of questions such as 'would you date someone for the sex?' and then used a map and pretty colours to show which parts of America said what. It makes for quite interesting reading, I must say!
Hands up who's heard of the LFL? No? Well the LFL is otherwise known as the Lingerie Football League, which is probably the greatest thing ever. Sexy ladies running around, playing football (well, American football), wearing just their undies. It's Incredible! Not the football bit but the underwear bit!
I love underwear and I especially love it when other people look good in underwear, which the ladies in the LFL certainly do. Maybe I'll start up a UK league. And all the players have to wear stockings. Especially if they are from the gorgeous new Leg Avenue range. That really would make football a beautiful game.
I found this post on The Shine blog quite interesting. An insight into a man's thoughts while having sex. I was surprised to find out they did have thoughts during sex, and pleased to discover it's not about my wobbly bits. Hurrah!
At Lovehoney, our love of all things bondage keeps getting bigger and bigger, especially since the sexy fetish model Hella Rouge has began modeling for our Bondage Boutique range.
This inspired me to search the internet for more bondage related stories and, not surprisingly, I found hundreds! But I did see this, again from The Frisky, which will give you some idea as to how long bondage leather cat suits have been around for - since the times of black and white telly that's for sure!
Mother-of-three Faye Bray turned heads for all the right reasons in X-Factor this weekend.
Her rendition of River Deep, Mountain High moved the judges to wave her breezily through to the next round, but (for the men in audience at least) her performance was more notable for the way she filled out her stunning pink corset.
Certainly, Dermot O'Leary (or should that be "O'Leery"?) took a very close interest in her particulars, proving his credentials as a lingerie connoisseur as he admired her fine stitching and delicate lace finish.
That and her handsomely distracting jubblies.
We think Faye sounded amazing and looked gorgeous.
If you want to emulate her performance, we can't help you with singing lessons, but slip yourself into our Dreamgirl Ursula Corset and you'll be turning heads faster than you can say "Is that a yes, Simon, or are you just pleased to see me?"
And because the Ursula corset is reversible, you get a 2-in-1 outfit that's as scintillating on stage as it is in the bedroom.
If you missed Faye's awesome performance on X-Factor, you can see it after the break…
"It was a good few minutes before I could leave the bread aisle!" exclaims Elle-Scotland, after enjoying her best ever trip to Tesco. It's as good a way as any to invite you to feast on this week's reviews round-up…
During our most recent poll, we asked 'have you ever experienced female ejaculation'? And the results were honest, enlightening and reassuring.
25% of people said that they had never experienced female ejaculation, but they would like to. This result really puts a smile on my face as it shows that people have come to understand, accept and embrace female ejaculation, but that it isn't as common as the internet leads us to believe!
So don't worry ladies – you're far from a sexual failure because you don't squirt! In fact, only 11% of the people surveyed said that they squirt regularly.
However, a shocking 6% voted for "women can't ejaculate it's all lies!"
If you’ve ever felt intimidated by glass dildos, you wouldn’t be the first – the hard, cold material seems a little uninviting, to say the least! But once you discover the amazing fun you can have with them, you’ll never look back.
I randomly came across this picture on PopBitch the other day. It's the best tomato and duck combination I've ever seen! There's also a link to the site This Peanut Looks Like a Duck which is a collection of food and objects that look like ducks. I was half tempted to send them a picture of the I Rub My Duckie Vibrator, but I don' t think they would appreciate it! But I enjoyed the randomness of this site very much, although I don't know why!
From wanking fun to, err, not wanking at all. Whilst catching up on the Frisky site, I discovered that the ex-guitarist for the band KoRn has had Jesus tattooed on his knuckles to stop him wanking. To be honest, I'm not really sure how this will work. How often do you look at your hand whilst wanking? Plus if he'd read this blog on the Examiner then he'd realise that the Bible isn't all squeaky clean like it's bigged up to be.
Lovehoney's Carly Drew was interviewed by the brilliant Murray Newlands about blogging for the sex industry. Whether you've just started your own sexy blog or you want to find out more about the Lovehoney team, Murray's interview is insightful, interesting and hilarious too! Check it out and leave him a comment or two!
This turtle having sex had me giggling my socks off! I do feel a bit sorry for the girl turtle though. Turtles never look like they're all that happy, but this one looks positively bored, bored, bored. Boy turtle seems to be enjoying himself though! Oh it reminds me of time spent with my ex!
Apparently the way to be unforgettable in bed is to ditch your guy and go solo! Brilliant! Tracey Cox gives the best tips and tricks for great solo sex that will turn you into a sexual goddess. And who wouldn't want that?!
And why not try out these 6 positions for Better Sex Play on the iVillage website? This post suggests massage and foreplay as great ways to achieve better sex and I couldn't agree more. Best to stock up on sensual massage oils and good lubes! I particularly like the JimmyJane Afterglow Massage Candle in Blackcurrant. The candle gives off a gorgeous scent and when the wax has melted it turns into a warm and silky massage oil. And it looks pretty too!

Breast cancer – two little words that can have a massive effect on any woman’s sex life. The medication prescribed for breast cancer and the draining side-effects of treatment can be an even bigger blow to your libido too.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Many women, of all ages, suffer with sexual problems after being treated for breast cancer, the most common being vaginal dryness and discomfort.
Sex expert Suzi Godson, recently commented on the issue of sex after breast cancer in The Times and asked for some Lovehoney recommendations to help women conquer the pain that accompanies sex after treatment.
The products that we sent to the lady seeking advice and that we personally recommend include:
- Berman Center Dilator Set
A series of smooth plastic cones that come in different sizes to help stretch the vagina. The Berman Center Dilator Set allows you to start small and slowly progress to bigger sizes, in a comfortable and satisfying way. Made of pure silicone, they are easy and safe to use, even on fragile skin.
