    Why Everyone Should Own A Realistic Dildo

    As someone who has owned and used sex toys for the majority of their sexually active years, I am a huge advocate of all types of toy and see no problem in possessing and enjoying them.

    With such a large range on the market, there truly is a toy out there for everyone.

    That being said, as the title of this article suggests, I am here to shout loud and proud about the fabulousness that is:

    The realistic dildo.

    Although many people would consider this a toy box staple, there are many others who are yet to be convinced.

    Why does it have to look so realistic? Surely if it doesn't vibrate, it's not worth it? Why does it have balls?

    Well, I'm here to enlighten you as to why these toys deserve a place in everyone's bedside drawer.

    How To Have Sex With A Condom (And Actually Enjoy It)

    Condoms are truly unsung heroes.

    Not only do they prevent unplanned pregnancies and STIs, they let us experience new sensations, they help sex last longer, and - if we are being really honest – they make the post-coital clean up oh so simple.

    Condoms only want what’s best for us, yet we make them the butt of our jokes, we use them for bizarre internet challenges, and we don’t appreciate them as much as we should.

    It’s a modern-day injustice, so I’m here to play devil’s advocate for the humble condom. Brace yourself – I’m about to drop some serious truth bombs.

    The only boring thing about a Lovehoney delivery is the plain brown box it arrives in.

    But don't take our word for it.

    In our last couples' interview, we spoke to two regular customers to find out why they choose Lovehoney as their go-to sex toy shop.

    What would they tell us? Is it our 24/7 customer care that keems 'em coming back? Our discreet packaging? Or maybe our 365-day returns policy?

    Not inclined to blow our own trumpet (it's so much more fun when someone else blows it for you), we asked them.

    Check out what they said, and let us know why you shop with Lovehoney in the comments below.

    Is Ex Sex Ever A Good Idea?

    Breakups are a natural part of life, and come in all shapes and sizes, just like relationships. And, just like in relationships, not all aspects of a breakup are always black and white. One of the big questions that comes up time and time again is a simple one - is it OK to have sex with an ex?

    The biggest thing to remember here is that, in a weird kind of way, a breakup is another facet of the relationship itself, and as such the exact details of the breakup will be as unique to each situation as the relationship itself was.

    When it comes to ex sex, the most important aspect to take into account is how exactly the relationship ended. Was it mutual or one sided? Calm and accepting or explosive and painful?

    These details can make all the difference, so let's look at how.

    How did you introduce sex toys to your relationship?

    Did you discover them together?

    Had you been together long?

    These are just some of the questions we're itching to know the answers to!

    This month is Lovehoney's Birthday month and, in case you missed it, we're 15 years old!

    To celebrate, we thought we'd chat to some of our longest-standing customers and find out how Lovehoney has helped add more sexual happiness to their lives.

    It's fair to say that, here at Lovehoney, we love sex toys. It's kind of our thing.

    But, aside from the obvious, there are tons of other uses for your favourite bedside buddy - and we think we've found another one.

    Lingerie expert Sammi (that's me) and bondage pro Jess (that's her) grab a couple of trusty thrusting vibes to see how effective they are as cues in a game of pool.

    Watch us and a comically small pool table battle it out in this special sport-themed episode of Sex Toys Ahoy.

    Fancy giving it a go yourself? Or perhaps just enjoying a thrusting vibrator as nature intended? Read on to see the toys featured in this video.

    How To Ask for What You Want in the Bedroom

    Sex is wonderful, and there are probably few of us reading this who would disagree.

    But, at times, it can be frustrating, embarrassing, and downright awkward. The most common woe I hear from friends is that they aren't getting what they want in the bedroom. Sure, sometimes what they want is a champagne breakfast in bed, but we can't all have that everyday.

    I'm talking about getting what you want between the sheets, and for some, the prospect of talking to a partner about this can be a scary thought. But it doesn't have to be.

    The root cause for most people is that they aren't confident in communicating their desires, and for some, they aren't even sure what it is that they want.

    Never fear! With these top tips you will soon have all of the tools you need to know what you want in bed - and how to ask for it.
