We are all very excited here at Lovehoney about the fantastic The New Joy of Sex book!
Not only is it fabulously presented, but it's been updated to encompass all the things that modern couples really want to know about.
The wonderfully detailed chapters explore the all important topics of clitoral pleasure, contraceptives, sex toys, lingerie, bondage and even female ejaculation.
Susan Quilliam, relationship psychologist and sex expert, was given the opportunity to add her expertise to the updated book.
Susan works with the International Journal of Family Planning, the British relationship counselling organisation Relate and innumerable global advisory boards in the field of sexual health and dysfunction, so is more than qualified to undertake the huge and prestigious job of updating the best-selling sex manual in the world!
I caught up with Susan and asked her all about the book and her opinions on sex toys and relationships.
The original Joy of Sex revolutionized people's love-lives during the seventies with its hands-on approach to personal pleasure and sexual satisfaction. However, the book now seems a little dated and parts of it irrelevant to modern love-making. This is why publishers Octopus Books decided to enlist the help of Susan Quilliam to revamp it!
Susan Quilliam is an exceptionally talented writer, agony aunt, sex expert and relationship psychologist. With her impressive collection of work and years of experience, Susan is clearly the perfect candidate to add a modern edge to the book that is to sex guides, what Hoover is to vacuum cleaners!
Masterminded by Susan, The New Joy of Sex has been completely revised and combines 21st-Century thinking on sex and sexuality with the much-loved style of the original. The result is a unique guide for modern lovers that's intelligent, witty, insightful and illustrated with the most beautiful drawings and photographs.
The Lovehoney Erotic Book Club was lucky enough to get an interview with Susan and got to ask about the creation of the book, her opinions on sex and relationships and get some top tips on writing an erotic guide.
Some of the most erotic stories are those that involve sex toys. Last year, we challenged all the budding erotic authors out there to produce an erotic short story that involved a sex toy, for our Lovehoney Erotic Story competition.
One of the runner-up winners was Ellis Campbell with the story "Small Packages". This short tale earned Ellis £50 of sex toys and the chance to be published online at Lovehoney!
This sensual story tells the tale of one woman, one fantasy and her Lovehoney Magic Bullet mini-vibrator! With a clever twist to keep you captivated, this is a piece of erotica that you're bound to love!

Whether you want to know how to approach the subject of intimate shaving with your boyfriend or how to have safe, comfortable anal sex - we've got the top answers from the best sources right here!
The Daily Bedpost's 'man panel' gives advice on how to convince your boyfriend to shave his pubic hair:
"You should explain to him how much bigger he would look without the hair, buy him a shaver and direct him to shave everywhere.
Make sure he knows that the frequency of oral sex will go up exponentially when the area is cleaned up and make sure you are diligent about your own grooming. Ask him things like, "You know what would be super hot…?" or "Did you know that you could look one inch bigger if…?"
Lovehoney Community members share their sex tips…
"When you go down on a man begin while he is still soft and without an erection.
It really turns men on to think that you can make him hard with a few flicks and twists of your tongue and it feels great for him to get hard in your mouth."
Give him an extra treat with the TongueJoy Vibrating Tongue Ring.

Famous reviews site CNET, went to the Arse Elektronika conference and discovered the iBuzz Two Vibrator. CNET Senior Editor for MP3 players and digital audio, Donald Bell discussed the product with Kyle Machulis:
"The iBuzz allows you to hook in whatever stereo equipment you have and pick up the bass frequencies, which adjusts the speed of the attached vibrator. It also has features that allow you to have patterns or different speeds. The really cool thing about it is whatever music you like, it turns it into a sexual experience.
It has an input and vibrator socket as well as two headphone outputs, so you can put your headphones on your significant other and share that special experience through the same vibrator."
He's not wrong! The iBuzz Two is a music-activated sex toy that allows couples to share the music and share the love!
